Summary: Freelancing Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on April 12 to bring in two more moderators, as an second attempt after last October's failed election.

For full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange. The timeline:

  • Starting on April 12, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On April 19, if there are three or more candidates, we'll run an election. If not, I'll simply appoint the candidates. (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination, but I doubt that will come up.)

  • If there is an election, I'll announce the results on meta on April 27.

(Note for current moderators: there's no need to nominate yourself even though you'll likely get an email saying you should. The system assumes the first election is a graduation election, which would mean moderators would need to be re-elected. This isn't that sort of election.)

If you have any questions about the process, please stick them in an answer here.

The nominations for the election have been extended for another week (until April 26, 2021) as we need more candidates. Please consider helping the moderation team and keep this site alive, by nominating in the election page!
