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!

I would like to nominate myself for one of the open moderator positions. I've been active with this site since it was in the public beta, and have really enjoyed watching it grow over the last year. In this coming year (and hopefully the future), I'd like to help further its growth.

A little about me:

I'm an Analyst Programmer in the United States, and have a BS in Computer Science. Admittedly, most of my experience is in the software side, but I have been enjoying learning more about the hardware side.

I would like to nominate myself to be a moderator of the Raspberry Pi StackExchange site.

I've been a member of the site for over 4 years and I was very active in the past. I love my Raspberry Pi devices and I believe that I have at least one of each. I have an original B, B+, Pi 2, Pi 3 and a Pi zero.

My drop-off in visiting the site is that I am also working with the Next Thing Co. CHIP devices which are also very cool devices. They run native Debian and also use embedded flash which has significant differences from the flash use on the Raspberry Pi.

The thing I most like about all the Raspberry Pi site is the passion everyone has for the Raspberry Pi device and the sense of community and desire to help people get the most out of their Raspberry Pi devices.

Here's a little about myself. I've been involved with computers for all of my adult life and I love programming. I studied electrical engineering in college, but never finished my EE degree. I have completed a BS in Information Technology and a MS in Information Security. I feel that my strongest skill is debugging and troubleshooting.

I think I would be a good mod because I am very passionate about raspberry pi and love to see a well cultivated place where people can learn and teach about it. I am also homeschooled (I'm from the USA so it is legal) and thus often have quite a bit of time that I can spend on the site.

In terms of experience I own two Pis and use them them daily for bash and python scripting, you can see some of the things I have made on github. I have also dabbled in wolfram, ruby and general electronics.

I would like to nominate myself for a Moderator position. I've been in similar positions before, just not on the Stack Exchange network.

My experience in Raspberry Pi is more derivative than specialized, most of my mocrocontroller experience was with the Olimex A20 board and the BeagleBoneBlack, and my experience with Debian-based systems is mostly desktop-based.

Each StackExchange community has a different feel to it, and while I think applying the rules is absolutely necessary to maintaining order on a site such as this, I think being a little relaxed and welcoming goes a long way towards building a community feel. There are users on here that are already very active and proactive in this regard as regular users (flagging posts, keeping other users in line via comments), but I feel a Moderator's role is to resolve issues being the scenes (conflict between users, Trolling behaviour, request new features, etc.)

I'd like to nominate myself for a moderator position.

Most of my experience comes from *nix in general, and for a while now, it's been focusing on the Pi more and more. I try to solve problems that others usually abandon and mostly succeed (given the hardware).

I've been on RPi.se for a while, answering questions mostly. I think this is a great opportunity for me to help out the community other than the usual methods.

I haven't been active on the meta site too much (if not at all) and my other moderation stats aren't noteworthy, but as someone has mentioned, it can be called "room for improvement".

While I haven't been active on the Pi board for quite as long as some of my esteemed fellow nominees, I have managed to nudge myself towards the top end of the reputation scores for my contributed content. I'm a big fan of the moderators the board's had to date, and would be looking to continue their efforts toward keeping this a nice place to find things out.

I'm an audio/visual engineer by training, but I've built some reasonably clever things for the marine industry here in Scotland over the last half dozen years, and managed to pick up just about enough electronics, programming and sundry button-pushy skills to hold sensible conversations with you all.

I would like to nominate myself as a moderator.

I have been a member of the site for over two years and in that time it has proved to be an invaluable resource for whenever I get stuck on something Raspberry Pi related. Becoming a moderator would allow me to help the site to continue growing and to keep it the helpful community it is, especially for those new to the Pi.

I am very active on the site, as a minimum I visit the site once per day and here is some stats on some of the things I have got up to on the site:

  • Asked 35 questions
  • Answered 34 questions
  • Edited nearly 200 posts
  • Reviewed close to 3000 posts
  • Raised over 300 helpful flags
  • Cast 1,225 votes

  • This election is over.
