On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

SEE THE CANDIDATES' ANSWERS TO COMMUNITY-CHOSEN QUESTIONS HERE.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators are as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

Tyler Durden

I am new to the Latin Language community, but a long-time user of the Stack Exchange.

I love Latin and want to support the growth of its use and study. Latin is not only our link with the cultural and historical past, but is one of most sophisticated and expressive languages in existence.

I believe in highly tolerant moderation that allows for a maximum in diversity of viewpoints and a supportive, educational atmosphere in communication.

Draconis

I've been a user here for several years now, and I very much enjoy being part of this community, so I'd be glad to give back to it by taking on some more moderation duties. I have moderation experience on various other forums and internet communities, though never on a StackExchange site.

cmw

I've been a long-standing member here (since the beginning!) and have been active in editing, cleaning, tag-suggestions, answering questions not only on the main site but also in meta. I have also been active in the Mythology stack, though, of course, Latin is my most frequent spot on StackExchange.

Adam

I have extensive community moderation experience on multiple community platforms, which I believe will be an asset to the Latin Language Stack Exchange. Additionally, I'm well-versed in generating engagement within a community as well as promoting a positive collaboration environment. I'm reliable, trustworthy, and I am confident in my ability to be just - a solid quality to have in any moderation role.

I also feel a sense of dedication to this community. I have benefited greatly from it on my journey to learn Latin, and I want to make sure that other members feel the same.

Ken Graham

Not the most consistent person here on the Latin SE site. But I am willing to make the effort to help out here as a moderator.

At present, I am a moderator on Christianity SE which I find quite challenging and quite rewarding.

Since moderators are needed I am willing to see to it that I will devote the time necessary to do my part in maintaining a great and awesome site here.

This election is over.
