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:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

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

En Stack Exchange, creemos que los moderadores principales deben provenir de la comunidad y que la comunidad, debe elegirlos a través del voto popular. Realizamos elecciones frecuentes para determinar quiénes serán estos moderadores de la comunidad.

Los moderadores de la comunidad reciben el nivel máximo de privilegio en nuestra comunidad, según A Theory of Moderation (Una teoría de moderación) y deben ser un ejemplo de comportamiento positivo y líderes dentro de la comunidad.

Nuestro criterio general para los moderadores es el siguiente:

  • Paciente y justo.
  • Lidera con el ejemplo.
  • Muestra respeto por los demás miembros de la comunidad en sus acciones y palabras.
  • Abierto a una moderación firme pero prudente para mantener el foco de la comunidad y resolver (con suerte) disputas atípicas y excepciones.

Toda elección tiene tres etapas:

  1. Postulación
  2. Elecciones primarias
  3. Elección

Participa en las elecciones de moderador con tu voto. Además, puedes postularte como moderador de la comunidad.
