Summary: Joomla Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for an election on October 17, 2023, as your “graduation” election — after the last attempt ended up resulting in a non-competitive pro-tem appointment instead.

The timeline:

  • On October 10, someone from the Community Management Team will post a question collection post on Meta, so that the community can post questions they'd like to see the candidates answer.

  • Starting on October 17, users can nominate themselves. The top questions collected on the previous week will be compiled into a questionnaire on the election page, so that potential moderators can answer them.

  • The existing moderator team will need to run in the election if they wish to keep their positions.

  • On October 24, if there are 4 or more candidates, the election will move into the voting phase. If not, I'll extend the nomination period for a week. If, at the end of that extension period, there are still fewer than 4 candidates, I'll simply appoint the candidates who've nominated (and aren't already pro-tem mods), and we'll default to considering this a "pro-tem election" just to try to bring the total number of moderators on the site up to 3 (for full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange). (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination.)

  • If the election moves into the voting phase, I'll announce the results on Meta on November 1 (or November 8, if we need to extend the nomination period).

If you have any questions about the process, please post them in an answer here.
