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.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Full elections have three phases and an optional fourth phase (Primary):

  1. Question Collection
  2. Nomination
  3. Primary
  4. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

I just presented my candidature so that Hasan doesn't feel alone moderating..

Also it's always good to have more than one moderator to avoid concentrations of power and to have plurality of opinions to better guide a community.


Hi! I am Hasan, a computer science undergraduate.

In the small list of my favorite Linux distributions, elementary OS is one. I am actually new to the OS, maybe 3 to 4 months but I try to keep up with the forum to know what's been going with it and its users.

I like helping people. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer screens, so I have chosen tech forums where I can help people to solve their problems. It's been a while I am contributing in forums. I have been a contributor in Microsoft Community too. I was also asked to join as a community manager in a local tech community when I was in class 12.

I also like to play games and code but the most i like is to play with Linux command-line. Yeah as a matter of fact I also use command in Windows more than the GUI.

Well, that's all. May the deserved ones gets elected.
Have a nice day.

This election is over.
