Does anyone know how often moderator elections are held on this site? Or more importantly, when the next one would be?
I would like to throw my hat into the ring for election as moderator so that certain issues can be dealt with a little faster than is currently the norm (not a criticism, everyone is busy, it's just that I am here pretty much every working day and the current mods often aren't).
I have read this excellent question from CodeGnome and the answer provided by Jmort253 appears to rest on the tiered moderator privileges that come as part of an SE site. However, with the slowdown in rep on the site it is difficult to advance moderation privileges quickly enough and one or more new diamond moderators that are more regular users of the site would be able to assist with cleaning duties in a more timely fashion.
