    Mods should recycle every 2 years or so, IMHO. Keeps the community fresh and allows for new ideas to grow. But without them Kings I can't play the Jester role like I have done in so many LISTSERV communities since 1990..

    IRL Democratic states have elections every 4 years, and heads of state can serve 2 terms. Let's be conservative and assume digital communities only evolve twice as fast. That means after 2 years any Mod, by definition, is a Dictator Mar 9, 2016 at 11:30

Moderator Election is not a scheduled task. It's only available when needed. Currently we have a good track record of moderation tasks and to my knowledge, there is no need for moderator election sometimes soon.

But in our business, things move fast, and we don't know what will happen tomorrow. So the best thing to do is to keep on doing what you are and you'll get your chance eventually.

  • A moderator once elected, never goes off unless he/she resigns?

    @AsadRefai It's like electing the Pope. You're in it "for life" :-)
