The 2011 Community Moderator Election is now underway!

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

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

Could anyone please tell me if the "community moderator" is different from the "moderator"? Sorry for the bother. :) –  Mugen Aug 14 '11 at 18:02

Historical note

For better or worse, Powerlord has, months later, decided to delete his account with the site. While the reasons to do so are personal and it's in his right to do so, little do I know why people would feel the urge to delete their accounts where just not using them would suffice.

Anyway, this means that his nomination has disappeared from the election page and the election results file you can download now apparently denies Powerlord ever took place in this election. As a result, a vote that originally was 1 5 10 6 0 (1 vote for Juan Powerlord and Badp) now appears as 1 5 0 6 0 (1 vote for Juan, nobody and Badp).

The end results don't change as he didn't get a whole lot of votes and it's overkill to make a feature request for better handling of deleted moderation candidates, something that's happened once in 1.5 years. I have thus reuploaded the original ballot file for your fact checking pleasure.

Download the original ballot file.

Okay, I'll admit I cheated. That's not precisely the original version; the original version had all 12 candidates at the end, including the two who didn't make it to the actual election phase. I had removed those two from the ballot file for my own processing pleasure (see everything above the historical notice). The change is however purely cosmetic and Powerlord's votes are correctly shown there.
