We will be electing 6 moderators and 2 alternates via single transferable vote.Wikipedia The mods are the 1st-6th highest-ranked candidates of the STV vote. The alternates are the 7th and 8th highest-ranked candidates of the STV vote.


1: There are no rules against self nomination.
2: When nominating somebody else, it is considerate to inform them with {{modnotice}} so that they don't miss the opportunity to accept the nomination.
3: Nominees should acknowledge the nomination by signing next to their name.
4: Nominees should accept or decline their nomination and move their name to the right section.
5: The propaganda and misinformation supplied by our candidates for supreme leadership may be found here, if anyone bothers to post any.
Timing note: Nominations must be accepted before midnight UTC on the closing date, this may be different to your timezone. Any nominations not accepted will be treated as "presumed inactive".

Also, as per the discussion and vote following last year's moderator's election (poll results):

1: Anyone who has been banned through coop or received the sysoprevoke penalty will be ineligible to run.
2: All candidates have to have been on the wiki for 6 months.
3: All candidates have to have made 300 edits by the time the election starts.
4: All candidates have to have edited at least 10 times in the two months before the election.
5: No sockpuppets may run, this includes alternative accounts.
6: Blocked users cannot run, unblocking users for the purpose of allowing them to run is discouraged.


Nominations are closed and voting is scheduled to commence on or about 19 November 2019. Thanks to everyone in the community for contributing to a lively campaign season. Cosmikdebris (talk) 03:43, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

Accepted nominations[edit]

Declined nominations[edit]

  • It's been a good run, but I've noticeably not been around enough lately to be an effective moderator due to other things happening in my life. I wish luck to those who accept their nominations, and I thank everyone who voted for me last time. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 02:13, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
  • No, I`m not as active anymore and I doubt I'd make a good mod anyways. Oxyaena Harass 11:58, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
  • No thanks. I'm planning something big in my personal life next year and I want to focus on that. TheUmbilicalCordGuy (talk) 09:56, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

  • After consideration I consider my time availability too "spotty" in the immediate future to do this well, maybe another year. :) Soundwave106 (talk) 22:15, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
