I am using this Hinduism SE Site for almost 1 year now. And from my experience of 1-year, I found that this site (which I know is still in beta) really needs set of ACTIVE Moderators.
Out of 4 Designated moderators, I experienced that, only Keshav Srinivasan is really active as far as site participation.
Here is the LAST SEEN Status of 2 of the moderator (except Keshav and Mr.Alien) as of this writing.
As we can see, 2 moderators visited the site almost half-year back. I am not alone who thinks the same way about the moderation, as this question also mentions the need of more ACTIVE Moderators.
I feel that to grow this Site, we need more ACTIVE Moderators to promote/drive growth of the site, along with, of course, more active participation from community itself (its not about moderators but community).
Hence, I suggest we should consider an option of changing the existing moderators who DO NOT ACTIVELY participate.
Of course, these are my observation as a User of this site, and I know there are many other ACTIVE and well deserving candidates in our community for Moderator role who will add more value to this site.
Let the community decide if we want to stay with those non-active moderators or give a chance to more deserving and ACTIVE Members a chance.
UPDATE-1: I found this comment from Keshav Srinivasn on another meta post.
moderators are usually not removed except for exceedingly long absences; here's what someone on the SE team told me when I became a moderator:"if you disappear for months at a time we'll email you and if you disappear for a looong time - 6 months, usually - we'll de-mod you.
According to this statement , those 2 should have been REMOVED.
UPDATE-2: As per the latest input from Keshav, the change to be applicable "by the end of the week"
UPDATE-3 : Ankit Sharma is our new Moderator. Check the announcement here.
All the best to Ankit in his new role on Hinduism.SE!!
