I deleted them from there (where they were not on-topic) and moved them here (where it's easier to answer them if you want to).
Maybe please correct/ adjust some of the actions of the stepped down person, since doing so wouldn't any longer be treading on the toes of another moderator; Site could benefit from someone kindly & fair & genuinely knowledgeable re Various Branches of Buddhisms; maybe possible individuals could be asked directly re their interest rather than only asked to volunteer; &, asking persons to run in an atmosphere of negativism, downvoting, bias, discrimination, narrow viewpoints & capriciousness, wouldn't tend to be conducive to election of a good eclectic moderator to help this failing site
And maybe a good time to Improve the site to more Objectivity, Helpfulness, & Usefulness: more Objective about Benefits to Readers & Contributors, and: use of comments & alternative Answers rather than simply downvoting something because someone doesn't like it, which stifles facts & the site, and makes it a popularity contest rather than a fact source, with narrow views instead of accurate encompassing information; And reduce apparently contrived q & a, and reduce pandering to thinly veiled deliberate derogatory so-called-questions re Buddhism, since this is ostensibly a Buddhism Site
maybe it would be helpful if You opened a discussion question or two re site adjustment/ development; also, how to operate the chat section, which might help people to communicate ideas which aren't convenient to exchange in the q&a main & meta sites, might generate more site participation; with only a half dozen main contributors, maybe it will take a while to build up to where more moderators are needed; how about have the post be for one year: then can reelect etc; presently, about all R has to do is raise their hand to be elected; & encourage potential Mods to explain what viewpoints they would tend to do as Mods: Your openness & suggestions & explanations are very helpful to the site; And currently the site seems mostly about Contemporary Mindfulness Meditation and quotations from Pali writings & interpretations, with little material from other Branches of Buddhism: so should election simply try to maintain that, or encourage broader Buddhism scope: Could there be more than 3 Mods? or at least more minor moderation by low point people, because getting into detail on just one good, yet poorly presented Buddhism question, could take noticeable time
This seems a helpful question& answer set from 5 years ago: << Should/could we have four moderators? >> ; SSSD makes a very good point: it's just a Very big amount of material: there are Hundreds of Branches of Buddhism; maybe more than four: maybe eight or more, especially if the site picks up: And a flexible number; & maybe for one year Reelectable terms, and open times to have an election, which would make sabbaticals easier and allow for genuine specialists in particular aspects & areas, and could also improve the site
Also these comments were posted under ruben2020's answer in that topic:
If Answerer could explain point of view re discouragement /encouragement of downvotes rather than differing comments & differing answers people might be helpful: with points so scarce with participation so small, downvote harm further discourages participation: Buddhism is a lot different from Math or Superuser: sometimes opposite seeming answers are Both correct, from within respective Doctrines: if considering actual accuracy to be present, downvoting etc tends to become a popularity contest rather than objective presentation of Doctrine/ fact/ material; cf q which are clearly inappropriate – M H yesterday
also, helpful point re how much time investment it is: could there be more than 3 mods? currently the site is failing, yet if it began to be accessed more, time load could increase quick; & there's comparatively little participation by other than half a dozen members,& points currently are so scarce, much Lowerpoint Member Moderation tasks performed in the way that SE was set up seems very unlikely: currently, most everything is done by halfdozen people, & there are very few posts appearing on the site; also, how about Moderator policy re helping q&a that reads like 'Yoda monologue' etc
