How would you handle this situation: A very popular, trivial question is posted (something like: "Why don't Segways have seats?"). It receives a lot of votes and answers and generates a large degree of comments and discussions. It has clearly been linked to from an external source and is bringing in lots of new users, some are leaving clearly useless ...

Congrats chaps! Welcome on board.

A new user has left several answers to questions, and many of these have been edited by the community to generally tidy them up, improve the grammar and remove any "I hope this helps, yours, {Username}" unnecessary elements. However this user keeps flagging these changes as well as rolling back these edits and leaving comments like "Stop vandalizing my ...

We've not had one since 2012, you're correct. That was pretty soon after we came out of beta status. However, elections on sites don't have set dates / times as to when they happen, they are brought about by site demand and / or by moderators requesting additional help with moderating. At the moment there isn't really a need for extra moderators, although I'...

Well its a typical UX answer really. It Depends. Now we're not exactly Stack Overflow, so moderating this site is not going to take your life away from you. But equally we need to be sure that if something major happens (and it does, on occasion) that the site isn't going to sit there not having anything done about it for hours on end. So in reality, if ...

Welcome to the team! About time we had some fresh blood around the place.

The UX community have great stats when it comes to answer percentage, compared to other sites with the same age and the same number of users. The number of answers are remarkably equal to these other sites, but there is one figure, which is low compared to other sites: The number of questions. The entire site generates 11 questions a day, which is half or ...

It really depends, and if you're already pretty active on the site daily, which would be ideal in a candidate, it can be more of a change of how your time is spent than how much you spend. Here's an average session for a mod, more or less: Check notifications ("inbox", mod notifications, flags, review queue) Check the front page & recent questions (and ...

Congratulations boys. I wish I could see at least one girl in the list of moderators. Looking forward to see females next time :)

UX.StackExchange is a fantastic place due to the community, but also because the moderators do a great job. I have the utmost respect for the first group of moderators BenBrocka, JonW and Rahul - thank you so much guys! Given how impressively active Benny Skogberg and JohnGB have been, I'm absolutely sure they'll do a great job too - congratulations!

This is an excellent question and you may have noticed that I have not been around much lately. The time commitment was greater than the time I had available (while moving between continents). However, I did make a commitment as a moderator to be a part of shaping the site, and I hold myself to that, so I've been trying to get back into things now that I've ...

No, the primary votes are only used to whittle down the (potentially huge) list of candidates down to a more manageable level. Once the top 10 go through the voting starts again (but picking the 3 preferred candidates in order of preference). That final stage is all anonymous so you won't see who has what vote count until the successful candidates are ...

Here is a set of general questions, gathered as very common questions asked every election. As mentioned in the instructions, the first two questions are guaranteed to show up in the Q&A, while the others are if there aren't enough questions (or, if you like one enough, you may split it off as a separate answer for review within the community's 8).

Where do you see yourself spending more time, using your mod powers for good, of course, given that you may only have a certain amount of time per day/week to give? ux.se meta.ux.se chat collaborating with other moderators anywhere and everywhere ... and/or do you feel that it even matters?

Subjectivity is all part of User Experience design, but Stack Exchange as a platform doesn't really fit well with subjective opinions - it's a Question and Answer site, providing visitors with a curated list of questions around specific problems that User Experience Designers have, and the respective solutions to those problems. With this in mind, how would ...
