Summary: Drones and Model Aircraft Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on May 18 to bring in your three inaugural pro-tem moderators.

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

  • Starting on May 18, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On May 25, if there are four 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 June 2.

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

  • $\begingroup$ On the page, you linked it says: "For these elections, the candidate questionnaire is an optional feature that individual sites can choose if they want". How is it decided if we are having a questionaire? Should a meta post be made about it? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yup, that is up to y'all. I can help curate the final list of questions if help is needed though :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I have created a post here: drones.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/112/… It serves as both an opinion as to whether there should be a questionnaire and a wiki post of potential questions, any suggestions? Should this feedback be gathered another way? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ All candidates will have to provide a small introduction that will be made available on the nomination page, regardless of whether or not y'all do a questionnaire. If you do end up doing a questionnaire, though, generally speaking we first have a question collection thread, and from there compile the most relevant questions into a questionnaire so the candidates can post their answers there. $\endgroup$
