I assume that it is unusual for a Beta to have another round of Moderator Nomination, but we are not only some time old, we also have reached an impressive number of questions and users. And as the graduation can still need some time, I suggest we nominate additional moderators to reduce burden.

Last Moderators Nomination: Moderators Needed

You can read there anything important about the process, and how you apply and so on.

also the general informations about moderators in Betas: http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/07/moderator-pro-tempore/

[EDIT] by Marius
When nominating yourself please add some stats about your activity on the website so far. You can get them from your dashboard.

  • Join date
  • Number of days on the website
  • Helpful flags raised
  • Number of moderation badges (different and total count) - Please..just moderation badges
  • Number of vote casts
  • Number of posts edited

Don't mention your reputation. It is not relevant for a moderator to have a high reputation (and if we can already see it just below your name anyway).

    Some extra moderators would be nice, I know the current ones are working hard to keep the forum clean but it's a lot of work – Sander Mangel Mod Jun 11 '15 at 14:34

    I know that Alex hasn't stepped down and he's not really doing much work with Magento - but do we need a 4th moderator? Or should we just ask Alex to give up his spot? Also - can we just decide to elect a new moderator? I'm pretty sure that we have to engage our SE community manager. – philwinkle Jun 11 '15 at 20:50

    There are some with less, some more then three. stackexchange.com/about/moderators There are even some with 8. – Flyingmana Jun 11 '15 at 20:57

    You should probably state in your question that this is not official as it does not come from the StackExchange team.... Some self nominations are just silly. And by the way...that's a good idea. – Marius Mod Jun 12 '15 at 15:09

    I hope it should be clear from the linked blog post, which points out, that this usually gets initialized by the communities them self and then just calls for global moderators to follow the result. – Flyingmana Jun 12 '15 at 15:14

    I doubt that everyone reads the links you posted. At least add to the question what a nomination should look like. It's not that easy to look through each nominated person's stats to see if they deserve to be a moderator. When we will graduate this will be done automatically. Until then we have no choice. I would go at least for "helpful flags raised", "vote cast" (maybe not important), "days on the website", "join date", "number of moderation badges". Feel free to add anything else you think it's useful. – Marius Mod Jun 12 '15 at 15:20

    I don't think that this nomination is official unless we're trying to actively ask one of our other moderators to step down. There's no cause for having 4 moderators with only 3 active. We need to ask Alex to step down if he's not fully active. My $0.02. – philwinkle Jun 15 '15 at 14:17

    @philwinkle. Maybe you should start a meta thread for this. (take my 0.02$ so you'll break even). – Marius Mod Jun 15 '15 at 14:21
  • @philwinkle i would like to see you as moderator – Kalpesh Jun 15 '15 at 16:36
  • I appreciate it but there are people way more active currently! :) – philwinkle Jun 15 '15 at 16:43
  • What is the progress?? – dh47 Jul 15 '15 at 12:21

    It's great to see all this nomination activity, and I'm sorry nobody from the team commented earlier. The reason that we were holding off is that I proposed Magento SE for graduation. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you've passed, as you might have expected based on the recent announcement about graduation criteria. The bad news is that we're not quite ready to give you a design or other benefits of graduation just yet (which is why this is only a comment and not a full post). (cont'd...) – Pops Jul 24 '15 at 17:36

    (cont'd...) This is entirely our fault, not yours. But with all that being said, the one "separated graduation feature" we have successfully tested recently is moderator elections. So, instead of appointing you a new pro tem moderator, I'm going to add Magento to the election queue. We have several sites already in that queue at the moment, but your turn will come up in about a month. Keep watching meta for more information! – Pops Jul 24 '15 at 17:37
  • I'm voting to close this question because it might get confused with the real election. This is not the real moderator election, but it was a good exercise for what's to come. – Marius Mod Aug 17 '15 at 17:46

    But Amit should increase his moderating abilities. When compare with other members, he is lagging with moderation aspects. But still he fits for the position of a moderator. – Rajeev K Tomy Jun 23 '15 at 8:22

    @dh47 what I mean by Indian Legend is, Amit is the MOST SCORED INDIAN. It is a unique tag and unbeatable. So I think he is an Indian Legend. If that hurts any one, let me call him as a Magento veteran. and you said it is not a great combination. But with all respect, I deny. I believe his profile is great and we can nominate him obviously – Rajeev K Tomy Jun 23 '15 at 10:53
