  • why can't more candidates become mod, and why don't old ones be replaced? (I just ask about the system, not saying who deserves who don't) – Ooker Mar 24 '18 at 3:40

    @Ooker: We don't require moderators to run for re-election because moderators sometimes need to make unpopular decisions. Generally we run elections as needed when the site grows or an existing mod steps down. It's not unusual for excellent candidates to not get elected. However, it's not unusual for them to get elected the next time we select moderators. – Jon Ericson Mar 24 '18 at 21:12
  • @JonEricson so the election doesn't run annually? And it's the algorithm to select which candidates success, not because only one can be chosen at a time, is that correct? – Ooker Mar 25 '18 at 0:06

    @Ooker No, elections are not run annually. In fact, the previous one here was in 2014. If you look at the election page you can see (on the right) that there was just one position available, and that's why only one moderator was selected. – Massimo Ortolano Mar 25 '18 at 12:09
