Ask Ubuntu moderator election is now underway!

We are in the midst of our 5th moderator election to add more firepower to our existing mod crew.

In the 6 years that Ask Ubuntu has been around, nearly 230,000 questions and 300,000 answers have been posted on the site, with the daily traffic clocking a whopping 487k visits as of now.

These numbers will only go up from here and to support this growing community, we are expanding our moderator team to accommodate two more. As is the policy with Stack Exchange network of sites, the new moderators will be added to the existing team and not replace them.

If you have a minimum of 300 reputation on Ask Ubuntu and think you can do a good job, consider nominating yourself for the role. The nomination phase itself runs for 7 days, followed by a week of primaries and then the actual election. People with 150 reputation are eligible for voting and I encourage them to vote for candidates that they think are most suitable for the role.

If you have any questions about the election process, you can ask them on meta. Discussions about the election can be had in the chat room too.

If mod work is not your cup of tea but you’re still looking for a way to help, you can always help us answer the incoming new questions. Featured questions would be a good place to start.
