So, weren't we supposed to choose our mods near the end of the beta?

What's the status of this first class Stack Exchange feature?

    Elections won't turn this site into anarchy as you wish.

    Expect few glitches, they are doing a pretty good job I think. However I agree that they are not enough and two or three additional moderators may help.

    @Pierre 303: I think that this question alludes to the point that some people disagree with your first statement. I would be one of those people. Dec 31, 2010 at 4:55
  • @SnOrfus: I suppose existing mods will not be re-elected by default. If they propose themselves again, I'll upvote both bigown & chris. To summarize my view: I think they did some mistakes, like the ones you and I do everyday. We are all humans after all. If you compare those mistakes to the work they provided for us, for free and with pleasure, they are just "glitches". I believe those glitches happened because we had only 2 active moderators on different tz. With 5 or 6 of them, they will be able to talk to each other and make better decisions.

Mod elections will be held in the new year, though it make take a month or two -- we have a lot of sites that we need to run elections on and the election code is just out of beta

    Thanks, and can we be certain that elections won't cause anarchy as I wish? Dec 29, 2010 at 22:18
  • Will the elections be publicized on the main site or should we all be keeping a close eye on meta?

  • @anna there are multiple site messages and a per-user message to eligible (>150 rep) uses once the final election starts. Oh, and a post on meta too. Dec 31, 2010 at 1:54
