Throughout the beta, we need members from the site whose focus is to engage the community, both in community-building issues and site management. That's why we select a few members from each community to act as temporary, provisional Moderators. You can read about the program here: Moderators Pro Tempore.

I am pleased to announce that these members have stepped up and generously volunteered their time to help us assure that each community’s issues are properly addressed.

We want to make this site a huge success, and these members are great examples of exactly the type of people we need to make this site succeed. Please welcome them for the hard work and time they contribute.

Did I overlook anyone?

Almost certainly. There are members who are actively involved and very deserving of recognition. My failure to account for everyone this early on is in no way a slight against them. Ideally, Moderators are elected by the community and that's why you'll have your elections when your site graduates.

Most of all, be respectful and understanding of the Moderators Pro Tem. Members of your community are volunteering their time and learning on the job. It’s a learning experience for everyone.

    Any updated election plans? (or did I miss it; I joined after 5/31/11 19:53)

  • @DoubleAA, I think they've since decided to do elections only post-launch and to not predict a specific amount of time between starting a beta and launching. We have not had elections.

  • @IsaacMoses is there any update as to when we launch? Feb 14, 2012 at 18:19
  • @ShmuelBrill, Not that I've heard about. When the SE Community Team determines that we're ready to launch, there will likely be very little lag, if any, between the mods finding out and the rest of the users finding out.
