I just had a look at the election page, and noticed that multiple candidates that were nominating themselves for moderation already are mods.
[they]'d like to continue as a moderator [...]
This made me wonder. I also visited and voted on the 2016 elections over at StackOverflow, but could not recall any of the nominees already being moderators.
For how long are Worldbuilding moderators elected?
Am I just missing something? Is this different to how moderation on StackOverflow works? I could imagine so, as the workload there is much bigger than on your beloved Worldbuilding site, I guess.
Can someone point me to some information, or tell me what I missed? I am just curious.
