I've been struggling to find the right words to express how I feel about this. For years now this site has been a second home to me. A place to learn and show off. A place to conect. A place to dwell. A place that you watched over.
I learned so much here because you made sure this place was about it's subject. You helped rename it. You helped redefine what ...
Good timing! We actually just reviewed Programmers to see if we were going to spin off another election.
While we agree that the current moderators are doing a great job, after looking at the growth of the site and how the workload is split across the current team, we scheduled an election for one more moderator.
The nomination period starts on February 18,...
I waxed if I should reply to this or start an entire thread by itself, but I wanted to toss this in.
I never 'knew' Robert, but he was professionally critically of a question I asked once, and at first I was embarrassed enough that I deleted the question. I realized however, the great service done upon me. I was seeking design help on building a framework ...
As ChrisF already mentioned you were never suspended by a moderator. We send you a message on Oct 9 expressing concerns about your questions, but that was just a friendly warning.
The automatic question block, that we have absolutely no control over, kicked in at the same time. While the mod message did not trigger the question block, since the two events ...
Although you don't have any deleted recent questions, you do have 7 deleted questions out of 10 questions asked. Your net score on questions is also negative.
Your questions are:

Moderators are supposed to be human exception handlers. If there's something on the site that you as a regular user can't deal with - either alone (e.g. by editing) or in conjunction with other users (e.g. voting to close) then that's the time to flag it for moderator attention.
That's all there is too it.
The specific moderator who handles your flag might ...
Your account was never suspended by a moderator.
If you are getting the message:
Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account
then this is an automatic process which we cannot affect.
Please read this Meta Stack Overflow question and it's answers to guide you on what you can do to get the ban lifted.
You asked a purely programming question way back when which was:
No longer visible for you to edit
Unsalvageable - there's no way you could have improved that post to make it on-topic and had it restored, even if you could have found it easily to edit.
Since you've obviously got a grasp of why we have the automatic blocks and what we hope they will ...
First, let me say Robert did not really answer your question (and I don't mean the fact he only used the comment sections):
The comment to your first bullet point gives just a starter for an idea of one possible solution, but I would not call this an answer.
The comment to your second bullet point tells you very clearly why this part of the question is ...
The question was flagged for moderator review, suggesting migration. I reviewed the flag and the question and determined that the question was indeed on-topic for this community. I dismissed the flag as being invalid, removed the comments suggesting migration or cross-posting (no comments should suggest cross-posting across the network anyway), and also ...
I wasn't a user back when the elections where held, but our first ever discussion today was certainly pleasant and informative, what I'd expect from a moderator.
This "question" remained "unanswered" for far too long!
I see three questions here.
Is there going to be a moderator election?
Dunno. Hasn't come up in our chat or hit my radar.
Do we need another moderator?
My opinion? No. I think the site is suitably managed by our current staff of Yannis, Thomas, ChrisF, maple_shaft, and myself. Maybe I'm way out of the loop though and don't see problems that you see. Make ...
