Thank you to the community for the vote of confidence.

Thanks to everyone for voting - the activity is great to see! Congratulations to my fellow moderators Nij and Philip. Dly and Olaf, I hope to see you around doing all the great moderating you're already doing - 90% of the work is done by the community, not the diamond moderators, and I'm sure your turn will come!

This seems an appropriate time to announce that I am not seeking election. I've been a member of Sports.SE since day 1, and had the privilege and responsibility of serving as a moderator since the first set were appointed back in early 2012. It was generally understood at the time that pro-tem moderatorship on a Stack Exchange site was a temporary thing, ...

Philip Kendall Moderators are not selected because they are domain experts in certain tags, but it so happens that you are an expert in one such tag. You see that several members of the community have elected to close a question as a duplicate, but you see that the duplicates don't actually answer the question as stated, nor do they provide a useful ...

Thank you, everybody. Those who ran, it was pleasing to see such a comparatively broad range of users stepping up to the plate. Those who voted, it gives me confidence that we remain engaged in our small corner of the Stack Exchange world, and that the community is happy with the directions it's going. Those who have and are moderating, I hope I can ...

While I have been absent from both Sports and the network more widely for the past few months, I'm now upping my activity again so would be interested in standing.

Activity on Sports seems to decline as of late; if you were elected, what would you try to do about this? Or do you feel this isn't the job of a ♦ moderator at all?

In your opinion, what is the biggest problem/challenge Sports Stack Exchange is currently facing? How would you propose to solve it?

Here is a set of general questions, gathered as very common questions asked every election. As mentioned in the instructions, the first two questions are guaranteed to show up in the Q&A, while the others are if there aren't enough questions (or, if you like one enough, you may split it off as a separate answer for review within the community's 8). How ...

Sports SE has comparatively few users with higher privileges (only 16 users > 5K, only 40 users > 2K, out of ~650 users > 2H and ~12000 users total). This can sometimes mean questions aren't closed, answers aren't deleted, or other key site actions that should be managed by the community don't occur. Please outline your expectation for taking binding ...

There is a high-rep user who is very active on the site, but frequently uses strong language which violates the Code of Conduct in their comments. When you warned them, they replied stating that the questions are of low quality which is why they left those comments. They also threatened to quit the site. Despite the warning, they continue to post similar ...

I have been hesitant to consider a moderator role previously, had an election been announced. However my concerns on the side of holding the role are now reduced or outweighed by wider considerations. I would nominate myself, and accept the support or otherwise of the community as indicated through an election.

I'd do it. I already tried it once on Gaming SE and I'm still up for it.
