But I think he's rubbed certain people's backs up once or twice. Not that this bothers me - sometimes people need to be (gently) slapped down - but I simply can't imagine you doing anything like that. It's good to have at least one mod who can be absolutely relied on to find the appropriate "middle ground" in disputes (or soothe the fevered brow of any user getting worked up about something where they don't have a leg to stand on! :)
Aug 28, 2015 at 16:15 comment added WendiKidd @FumbleFingers I realized that about 3 questions in sheepish We weren't elected the first time around, we got emails from SE and had the choice to accept or not... This process is new to me from a candidate-standpoint, and I think I did jump the gun a bit ;) Thanks for your vote of confidence! And thank you for sticking with the site for all this time. ELL wouldn't be the same without you :)
Aug 27, 2015 at 12:01 comment added FumbleFingers @WendiKidd: Since you are currently a mod, I assume you know better than me exactly how this process is supposed to work. But it seems to me the purpose of this page is to collect together a handful of questions that will be put to candidates after the nomination phase ends. I'm perfectly happy with the content of the comments you've made to a couple of "answers" here (and I fully expect to vote for you when the time comes! :) - but surely things will get a bit confusing if all candidates follow your lead and respond here before being presented with "the actual questionnaire".
Aug 25, 2015 at 7:51 comment added WendiKidd In the early days, I kept a tab open with the Unanswered questions list. I'd monitor the questions, nudge people to change their comments into answers, give further encouragement if they said they weren't sure. As the list got larger I let the practice fall by the wayside, and I was always hesitant to post the comments as answers myself. I think I ought to change that, and systematically attack that list again--but this time, if the commenter doesn't answer after some time, post the answer myself.
