Summary: Arts & Crafts Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on August 10th to bring in two more moderators.

For full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange. The timeline:

  • Starting on August 10th, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On August 17, if there are three or more candidates, we'll run an election. If not, I'll simply appoint the candidate/s. (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination, but I doubt that will come up.)

  • If there is an election, we'll announce the results on meta on August 25th.

(Note for current moderators: there's no need to nominate yourself even though you'll likely get an email saying you should. The system assumes the first election is a graduation election, which would mean moderators would need to be re-elected. This isn't that sort of election.)

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

Just double-checking:
As this is a Pro Tempore election, there won‘t be a candidate questionnaire? Or am I missing something?

    That's correct. If there were, it would have started last week :D So this is just a simple, "step up and then vote". :)
