Moderating Physics.SE is clearly a lot of work. We attract a lot of off-topic posts and crazy crackpot theories. I don't see a lot of thanks or appreciation going to our moderators either. Thank you to all of our hard working moderators for handling all of the work our site creates!
That being said, if we had more moderators the load would be better balanced. On of our moderators, mbq hasn't been active in quite a while. Even if we don't need to increase the total number of moderators, it seems reasonable to discuss shifting mbq's moderator role to a more active member.
Clearly I think we should look into increasing our number of active moderators. I don't have any data to back me up and I can't read our active moderators minds to know how burnt out they are but I think we should consider reclaiming at least on moderator role and possibly adding another.
What does the community think? Do we need to do anything? Should we?
