In connection with the moderator elections, we are holding a Q&A thread for the candidates. Questions collected [from an earlier thread](https://ethereum.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/477/2017-graduation-moderator-election-qa-question-collection?cb=1) have been compiled into this one, which shall now serve as the space for the candidates to provide their answers. We have selected all provided questions as well as two of our backup questions to come to 10 questions total. As a candidate, your job is simple - post an answer to this question, citing each of the questions and then post your answer to each question given in that same answer. For your convenience, I will include all of the questions in quote format with a break in between each, suitable for you to insert your answers. Just [copy the whole thing after the first set of three dashes](https://ethereum.meta.stackexchange.com/revisions/6388852b-d02d-4a08-a858-7965ea0dcdc4/view-source).Please consider putting your name at the top of your post so that readers will know who you are before they finish reading everything you have written, and also including a link to your answer on your nomination post. Once all the answers have been compiled, this will serve as a transcript for voters to view the thoughts of their candidates, and will be appropriately linked in the Election page. Good luck to all of the candidates! **Oh, and when you've completed your answer, please provide a link to it after this blurb here, before that set of three dashes. Please leave the list of links in the order of submission.** To save scrolling here are links to the submissions from each candidate (in order of submission): --- >1. What keeps you coming back to the Ethereum Stack Exchange? Things may be "hot" now, and what will keep you coming back when things "cool" down? >2. From https://ethereum.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/358/on-ethereum-classic-usage: "...Ethereum Classic questions will be well on topic..." Agree/disagree/ambivalent? >3. How would you deal with a user who produced a steady stream of valuable answers, but tends to generate a large number of arguments/flags from comments? >4. How would you handle a situation where another mod closed/deleted/etc a question that you feel shouldn't have been? >5. Moderators can help improve the site and sometimes this can be "clean up". What areas/s, if any, are you motivated or nags you to improve or clean up? >6. Should we discourage questions about exchanges, trading, buying? ... How? :) >7. What strengths do you think you would bring to being a moderator? Which of your "weaknesses" do you think would make it more difficult for you to being moderator? >8. One of the very important things I would like to see with Eth SE would be to have a section for generic (and some targeted question) which will help new users and like currently, a discussion of PoS is going can be better structured. What do you think as a candidate on this? >9. A diamond will be attached to everything you say and have said in the past, including questions, answers and comments. Everything you will do will be seen under a different light. How do you feel about that? >10. In what way do you feel that being a moderator will make you more effective as opposed to simply reaching 10k or 20k rep?
