Background

In May 2011, Tmtoulouse announced a plan to reform RationalWiki's user rights structure. After a period of soliciting comments on this plan, he laid it out in more detail.

The plan revolves around a body of 7 moderators, elected by single transferable vote. The moderators will be vested with moral authority to keep Wiki discussions on track, especially by stopping discussions that have become destructive in nature.

After the July 2013 election, elections scheduled for December never took place and the 7 people elected as mods got to keep being mods for 2 and a half years. Eventually, a discussion was had which agreed to lower the number of mods to 4 and scheduled new elections for November of 2015.

Following this election, in typical RationalWiki fashion, 2 moderators promptly resigned, and the community voted to elect 4 more moderators for a total of 6. As it currently stands (as of January 7th 2016) there are 6 moderators and 2 alternates elected every year. However, by the time you have read this sentence that is likely to have changed.

The moderators are vested with unquenched thirst for innocent RatWik blood moral authority (and user rights powers) to keep Wiki discussions on track, especially by stopping discussions that have become destructive in nature.
