I know SE sites' community moderators are elected by the community. The last and only election on GameDev was in 2011.

Do these elections happen periodically or just that once?

From my understanding if there's pressure to add another moderator, or an existing moderator steps down, then they'll have an election.

I don't think existing moderators have to re-nominate themselves, it's purely an additive basis.

Do you feel we need another election?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Another election seems unnecessary. Moderators should not be added until the need is obvious and they should most certainly not be replaced except under extreme circumstances. I wanted to check if I agree with the site's policy and I'm glad I do! \$\endgroup\$ – Anko Jan 9 '13 at 23:43

I think they only happen when they need to happen, generally at most once per year; so far there's been no need for another one.
