We welcome the reception this post has gained, and appreciate all of you who are considering to run. We will therefore hold an election. As soon as new details are available, they will be featured in a separate Meta post.
Again, thank you all for your participation.
This community last held an election in late 2016, so it's been a while... In addition to that, you may have noticed that one of the current mods — ManishEarth — is stepping down from their moderator position.
While the remaining members of the moderation team don't feel an election to find a replacement for Manish is urgent, they agree that it could help to have one more volunteer step up. To avoid finding ourselves in a situation where an election would fail due to an insufficient number of candidates, though, I'm posting this to try to assess the community members' willingness to step up and nominate themselves, should we decide to hold an election.
Please leave an answer if you'd be willing to run for a moderator position, should we decide to run an election. We'd probably be able to schedule question collection to start some time in April '19.
NOTE: This is not an official election nomination thread, just a "pulse check" to get a notion of how many people here would be willing to step up, so you don't have to put up your whole election nomination.
