When the moderator election was announced with 2 slots, that was surprising enough it prompted some remarks in chat. I agree it's interesting since moderation teams this size have often only grown one at a time (I think), and when RPG.SE decided to grow from a moderator team of 2 to 4 (not counting one third/fifth moderator absent due to life circumstances) they decided on that to help avoid burnout, support unpredictable life circumstances, etc.
So to the elected moderators: Could you tell us more about the circumstances on your end that prompted the election and request for 2 extra moderators? Is there stuff in particular you need assistance with? Is there more volume than you can keep track of, or something like that?
I'm not sure I'll run myself — I haven't been very active on mainsite for years — but this information might be useful to those considering running, and to those of us who will be voting for the potential new moderators.
