I see that we're electing one moderator. I'd like to suggest that we add two new ones, and that perhaps some of the existing moderators who have become busy with other things (no shame in that!) can hang up their hats to make room.

(Vote this up if you agree, and down if you don't.)

    \$\begingroup\$ It was discussed with respect to need and we didn't think the load required 2 additional moderators at the moment. The biggest factor is that a very large part of the moderation is coming from the users in general, so there's not a lot of real moderation demand on a daily basis (2-3 flags or less usually). \$\endgroup\$
