In this question, we've established that this Q&A site has grown to the point where adding more moderator coverage will help maintain the standards of a Q&A site.
Would the results of the last election still represent the current, active body of users? Should we pull moderator #4, 5, and 6 based on the last election when the perceived quality of questions and answers was better?
Would the results be different if an election was done today for #4, 5, and 6?Would the users of today elect moderators who may not have the best interests of the site in mind? For instance, some of the 3000+ users with close and reopen privileges may close/reopen questions that shouldn't be opened/closed, and if there are enough of these types of users voting in the election, could their votes affect the quality of the moderators who are selected?
Is it possible that elections in some cases may not actually result in what's best for the community, or would modifying the elections destroy the very foundation and design of the StackExchange network? Which option is least-destructive to the community?
