In a bit over 3 hours, the nomination phase of the moderator elections is scheduled to end. However, in order for the election to proceed, it is necessary to have at least one more candidate running than there are slots. This allows for there to be actual voting phases, so that the community can actually show that they support the candidates who are running. Should there not be enough candidates come 20:00 UTC when the phase change would occur, the nomination phase will instead be extended for another 7 days.
We need leadership to come from within this community, the election can't move forward unless someone wants to take on the responsibility. This is your graduation election - appointed pro tem moderators' terms automatically expire at the conclusion of voting, so we need to elect a full complement of moderators in this election. Did you consider nominating but decided not to for some reason? Now would be a great time to reconsider!
