It's time to think about who the mods should be, and one way to do that is "nominate" candidates for the role of moderator pro tempore. These nominations won't lead to elections, since this is a beta site. Instead, the Stack Exchange team will take these recommendations into consideration as they select these provisional moderators, and when we graduate, we'll have an actual election.
If you want to nominate someone, please check first for other answers nominating the same person, and upvote that instead of posting your own answer. Nominations should have the name of the nominee and a brief explanation of why you think they'd make a good mod
To disagree with a nomination, downvote, and ideally comment on why you disagree. Do not edit the answer. Note that agreeing with one nomination does not mean disagreeing with all of the others – "X is better" isn't a reason for Y to not be a mod. We have three slots, after all.
If you've been nominated and for any reason you can't or don't want to be a moderator,
do it anyway please edit the post to say that. You don't have to be specific as to why, but for this pseudo-nomination we need to make sure we only think about people who could actually do what's needed. Likewise, if you are able and willing to, please edit the answer to reflect that, and maybe even add a short "campaign speech".
If you are interested in becoming a moderator and feel that you could do it, nominate yourself! Self nominations are encouraged.
Here is an example nomination entry. You can copy-and-paste from the format below:
##[username](<main profile link>) ([meta](<meta profile link>)) Notes: <why you feel nominee would be a useful addition to the pro tem choices>
Please ensure that your nomination is community wiki. This allows anyone, even those without full editing privileges, to edit freely.
To be edited in by the nominee:
