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.
Every moderator should ensure they RESPECT their fellow SO contributors. In my case, if you choose to honor me with your vote I will show respect in the following ways:
Reasonable and fair,
While others talk about thier SO resume, one thing remains clear to me. Anyone, given enough time can amass a good SO resume. However, that list of numbers doesn't mean that they are moderator material. Instead, look at the quality of thier character, and think "Would I trust this person to choose the fate of my question or response?" If the answer is no, then they dont' get your vote. I will ensure you get the full RESPECT your questions and answers deserve. Please vote for Me.
I would like to stand for election as a moderator.
I have had disagreements with the incumbents' actions, of late, and I honestly believe that you shouldn't complain about things if you aren't willing to help fix them. Well, here I stand to offer to help fix them.
I will stand for those who feel that "The Workplace" encompasses all aspects of the work environment, and not just employer/employee interactions. I will also stand for members' ability to express their views on correct responses and courses of action to workplace events without being derided in comments for holding those views.
What have been your biggest challenges as a moderator?
When I disagree with a high reputation user. I try to discussion in Meta, refer to MSE for precedents. I usually find my disagreement with the high rep user was an education issue on my part.
What advice do you have for somebody considering this job?
You shouldn't want to be moderator to affect change or alter the direction of the site. Your opinion is no more important than anybody elses. If the majority disagrees with you then put your personal feelings on the matter aside and serve the majority consensus on the issue.
