The nomination phase of our moderator elections ended on Monday 21st. August 2017 at 20:00 UTC.
Note that Stack Exchange has a rule that there must be at least one more candidate than positions available (so there genuinely is an election).
When the nomination period finished we had 3 nominations for 3 positions, and therefore the election could not proceed (the 3 nominated people were not automatically elected).
The nomination period was extended by 7 days to give other people a chance to nominate. It will now close at 20:00 UTC on Monday 28th. August 2017.
If you are one of the many users who post frequently, help clear the review queue, and have an interest in this site, please nominate as a moderator candidate. Who knows? You might be elected! You would join a small, friendly team of moderators who keep an eye on moderator flags. Moderators have their own chat room for private discussions. There is also a Stack Exchange chat room for moderators only from all sites, where issues can be discussed and resolved.
Moderation is not particularly onerous, unlike the higher-activity sites like Stack Overflow. You may only have to look at a few flags each day.
At the time of editing (Wednesday 23rd. August) we now have 4 nominations, however it would still be helpful to have more nominations. Nominating shows an interest in the site, and gives voters a wider range of choice when voting.
