Lately, it seems I am the only moderator who is really performing the necessary duties here. Last week I had a pretty rough week at work, and I did not have as much time as I usually do to address flags, the PotW, and other things here on PhotoSE. We've accumulated over 20 flags today, none of which have even been viewed by anyone but myself so far.
I am happy to continue serving as a moderator here, however I cannot handle the job 100% entirely by myself. It would be nice to have at least one other person who can regularly visit this site, check flags, evaluate posts, and take the appropriate action...at the very least. I have also been the sole moderator managing the PotW for quite some time, since Fall last year, and I do not always have time to update the header exactly on time. If I miss it, it would be nice to have a backup to update it.
Our site is increasing in popularity and volume as well. We have several new flags a day at least, sometimes as many as a dozen a day. We are getting a lot more new members, and along with that, a lot more insufficient answers that need to be addressed, which usually requires visiting those answers several times to add a post notice, add a comment, watch for edits that improve content, and if there are no edits, taking the appropriate action. I've been able to keep up so far, but my life does not have as much free time as it once did, and if we continue to experience increased moderator load, I won't be able to handle it entirely on my own.
I don't mean any offense to the other moderators, but I really feel left out in the dust, entirely alone, by each of you. You all took on a commitment to help maintain PhotoSE and keep it a clean, well oiled machine and a friendly place to be. If you no longer want the job, we should hold an election and bring in some new people who have more time and are enthusiastic about the job.
