2018 Moderator Election

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

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

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


This election ended Mar 6 '18 at 20:00.

The results of this election can be viewed online via OpaVote. Anyone may download the election data. Voters have access to pre-built OpenSTV software to audit the results; all others may use this source distribution


2,304 voters were eligible, 958 visited the site during the election, 885 visited the election page, and 387 voted

I have been dealing with Magento for about 7 years and have learned by far the most here. A year and a half ago I registered because I thought I might be able to answer something useful (and give something back). :)

Since 05/17 I've been online almost every day several times in order to check the current questions, to check reviews, try to anwser some questions etc. ... some "mod stats" ...

When there is time for, i try to contribute to https://github.com/OpenMage/magento-lts/ , so I'm always interessed in know bugs and problems.


Why I've nominated myself? Maybe related to 9th question ... I spend a lot time here ... try to help where I can, but for 10-20k REP (to get same priviliges) it would take another year or more. I like this community and would like to contribute a bit more then I can do now-...

My 2018 Moderator Election Q&A - Questionnaire

I’m Matt Antley, I have been part of the Magento community for the last 3 years, 2 of them have been signed up to this Stack Exchange. I became extremely active at the beginning of last December (I was hoping to beat Marius as highest rep gain in that month) but suffered an injury that affected my activity over the last few months. I now feel I’m getting back to my old ways and increasing my activity within the community again, for this reason I’d like to nominate myself as moderator.

I also feel like I prompted these elections with my Meta post last year and was aiming to nominate myself if the opportunity came about - Community Moderator Election 2017/2018?

  • Please consider to answer this link and attach it with this description: magento.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2291/… Although you are here around for 4 years and it looks like your moderation history is questionable. It would be great if you can explain here why do you consider you are eligible for a moderator post? – Rajeev K Tomy Feb 22 '18 at 12:05
  • does this nomination based on the years of experience ?If that is the case i can withdraw my nomination, does that work? I am a certified Magento developer, so i have the confident about my experience. – Naveenbos Feb 22 '18 at 14:25
  • I think just outlining what you want to do with the position in the link @Rajeev posted is what people are looking for. Since your history on the site isn't enough to speak to your interests, the questionnaire will outline who you are. – circlesix Feb 22 '18 at 18:13
  • nomination doesn't based on your year of experience.it's based on your atitude – Visakh B Sujathan Feb 23 '18 at 7:15

Hello, I would like to toss my hat in as a moderator canadate. I have been a memeber of this site for just over two years. In that time I have taken a long game approch to helping people out and finding help to questions of mine. I try and dig deep into the question and find the answer that doesn't just find a solution, but finds the right solution for the person asking the question. With this, i have earned a low amount of rep over my two years (1,953) but have several badges that show my deep commitment to this work (Unsung Hero gold badge being the most emblimatic one). As a moderator I will look to uphold the high standers that our great community has created and help shepard this great site and it's users.

  • Don't take this the wrong way, but you have low stats for almost 2 years as a member. If you get elected do you think this will change? – Marius Feb 20 '18 at 7:24
  • @Marius ! your point is very much valid regarding the stats ; what I actually believe is the diversity of thoughts-- the key to creativity and innovations ; which is very much instrumental in making Magento , the market leader, perhaps my thinking perspective strayed here , as you have well highlighted "Don't take this the wrong way" ! However , answering your last question, yes the stats will change -- not drastically but ,gradually. – Verdu Feb 20 '18 at 7:41
