Summary: Physical Fitness Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for an election on August 22, 2023, as your “graduation” election. This is going to be a second attempt at a graduation election, brought about by the recent departure of two members of the moderator team, leaving the team with a single moderator.

The timeline:

  • On August 15, I'll post a question collection post on Meta, so that the community can post questions they'd like to see the candidates answer.

  • Starting on August 22, 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 August 29, if there are 4 or more candidates, the election will move into the voting phase. If not, we'll extend the nomination period for a week. If, at the end of that extension period, there are still fewer than 4 candidates, we'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, we'll announce the results on Meta on September 6 (or September 13, if we need to extend the nomination period).

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