With the growth of the Gaming Stack Exchange, and the loss of Grace Note as a moderator, it is time once again to hold Community Moderator Elections for 2 new moderators. The winners of this election will be joining our remaining group of moderators.

The second 2011 Community Moderator Election is now underway!

Community moderator elections have three phases:

  1. Nomination phase
  2. Primary phase
  3. Election phase

Most elections take between two and three weeks, but this depends on how many candidates there are.

Please visit the official election page at

https://gaming.stackexchange.com/election

for more detail, and to participate!

If you have general questions about the election process, or questions for moderator candidates, feel free to ask them here on meta -- just make sure your questions are tagged .

The careful reader will notice that at step 3, a random decision was necessary to break a tie (Anna and Fallen both have 16 votes at step 2). Those running the ballot using a graphical tool will be asked to pick one between FallenAngelEyes or Anna Lear, or press Cancel to let the fate choose. The final outcome of the election does not change regardless of the choice, however, and running the elections with any number of seats different from 2 will not cause this corner case to happen.
