Since the other "Who should the moderators be" question turned out to be more of a discussion about what makes a good moderator I thought that we'd start this topic that is just for nominating and voting.

Each answer here should be in the format below. The name of the person is also a link to his/her profile. Votes determine who we'd like to see as moderators. It is OK to nominate yourself.

Jane Doe

This is a little text about Jane Doe. What we know about her, why she would be suitable as a moderator. Just a few lines, not a novel.

  • Is the process as simple as the top M users according to answer score at a specific date/time will be selected as the M moderators? Sep 8, 2011 at 20:06

    No, it's not that simple. "Shortly after the public beta starts (1-2 weeks, generally), the Community team chooses 3 pro tem moderators. They're selected (versus elected) based on a number of factors, one of which is community input from a "Who should the moderators be?" meta post—assuming one exists."
