election phase, up to 10 candidates advance to final community voting. Candidates are displayed in random order.
Any community member with
150 reputation may vote in the election. Please make your selections in order of preference, with the most desirable candidate as first choice. You should only rank the candidates you think would make good moderators.
We will calculate the winners using
Meek STV method
, which automatically weights users' votes in the way that does the most good for the candidates they have selected, in order of preference.
When the election is complete, the

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

I care deeply about the cstheory stackexchange community.
As a moderator, it would be my duty to:
(1) Ensure that researchers, students, and professionals can continue
to share meaningful questions and answers
(2) Patiently and fairly assign flags, tags, and reviews
(3) Prevent and resolve issues
I have a strong sense of respect and appreciation for all of the mathematicians and computer scientists who contribute on the cstheory stackexchange platform.
As a moderator, I promise to:
(a) Be active
(b) Be responsive
(c) Be welcoming
I'd like to gain a deeper understanding of (a) theoretical computer science and (b) the StackExchange system of sites. Also it seems like it should be fairly easy to do a reasonable job. I have
>15K rep on MathOverflow so am pretty familiar with SE sites. I like how SE sites make micro-publishing into a kind of game, and I developed a couple of TCS-related games:
The Complexity Guessing Game
The Complexity Option Game
I have some
papers on computability theory and theoretical computer science (automata theory) but looking to learn more.
I have a
100% helpful flag record on MathOverflow.
