Martin Ender is stepping down as moderator.

We had a moderator election only about half a year ago. There were three candidates, of which two were elected. The last candidate was PhiNotPi.

Do we have to go through all the hassle of another election process or can we just offer the position to PhiNoPi.

I think it is highly unlikely that anybody else stands a chance in a full election.

I think PhiNotPi would make a fantastic mod, but we're a graduated site now so if at some point there arises a need for an extra moderator, I'd be very surprised if that didn't involve an official election.


So what happens now?

Nothing. Only time will tell if Martin's resignation has really caused problems with the diamond moderators, and, if so, a new moderator can get appointed or elected.
