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.
I have previously expressed concern for the number of moderators in QF (see Meta). I take an active role in the forum and am keen to promote the community and foster an environment that is genuinely useful for the active community.
Frankly, and for full disclosure I don't always necessarily agree with Stack Exchange's approach. QF is a different community than say StackOverflow. As such I believe it needs a somewhat different approach. I am more concerned with actively supporting its user's (possibly over-specific) questions than building a long-term database of relevant and general knowledge. I think promoting the former will naturally lead to the latter.
That said, I am still proud to put forward my pseudonym as a consideration for moderator and will endeavour to uphold the core principles of the forum whilst considering the wider issue of safe guarding a valuable space for the future, and encouraging new and continuing users alike.
