I just posted my nomination. Thanks for the encouraging words!
Let's be clear: I am not an old-timer (I have been here for 10 months), and there are other, much more experienced users that would be much more suited for the moderator role than me.
Those users, however, do not seem to feel motivated to run for a moderator position, for different reasons to which they are of course entitled. We have therefore only Charlie as a moderator who does all the work, and both JNat (from SE) and Charlie have clearly stated that we need more moderators. It is also not fair to leave all the responsibility to only one volunteer.
If the more experienced users confirm that they are not motivated to moderate, I would be willing to step up for this role, but only if the community wants me. Considering the way the election will run, it looks like a nomination would directly give me the role independently of how the voting goes, so I need to know this before deciding to nominate myself.
So here I ask you all: would you support me as a moderator? If there is enough support, I will nominate myself. If not, I won't. No hard feelings either way.
You can look at my answers to the candidate Q&A, which will hopefully help you form an opinion. I am looking forward to opinions, questions, and constructive criticism.
