While M&TV has a large userbase and many visitors, the meta participation is relatively low and discussions are usually held within a small active core group. Do you see this as a problem? If yes, how would you try to improve the situation as a moderator?

As a moderator, your votes become binding. Actions you used to take like flagging, reviewing, closing, and deleting will take effect immediately without any input from any other users or moderators. How will you adapt the way you currently flag and vote to deal with this change?

Thank you all for your kind words. :) And thank you Ankit Sharma. You've been a great moderator and friend. Nobody can fill your shoes (I can try but no one will). Good luck!

How willing are you to commit time to this site every day to ensure that everything is seen by at least one mod in a relatively decent amount of time?

How you are going to handle spoiler complaints? People here have submitted many complaints about spoilers and a new user can give a big spoiler very clearly. So how are you going to handle this?

Being a moderator you will be able to close questions on your own and override other community votes. Will this change how you vote to close questions?

AJ is the new moderator on Movies & TV, I'm just sad it wasn't me. As I look at the results it wasn't much of a fight, but I see things in a positive light. The site has a wonderful new addition to its team, and with pride it should beam. Congratulations AJ! And thank you all you did cast a vote for me, it is very humbling to earn your ...

Here is a set of general questions, gathered as very common questions asked every election. As mentioned in the instructions, the first two questions are guaranteed to show up in the Q&A, while the others are if there aren't enough questions (or, if you like one enough, you may split it off as a separate answer for review within the community's 8). How ...

Votes are counted using a system of Single Transferrable Vote (STV) counted using a system called Meek's Method. Unless I misunderstand how STV works, it is not compulsory to vote for 3 users. One vote will still count. However if you vote for one candidate and they are removed from the race, then your vote will not transfer to another candidate. By ...

A new user has arrived and doesn't really understand the way the Stack Exchange system is supposed to work. They're complaining that people keep editing their posts and a roll back war has started on a question that they've asked. You need to step in and moderate the situation. What actions do you take?

A user has posted a question that was quickly closed as being Trivia. The user however disagrees believing the question is valid, on-topic and not "trivia" and proceeds to post their frustration in the comments and on Meta, dismissing the opinions of others trying to help, etc. How would you determine if the question is Trivia or not? How would you defuse ...

It's very nicely addressed in the main meta: When do elections take place? The community team periodically looks at the work load on graduated sites and will reach out to the moderation team if it looks like more help might be needed. Broadly, it's up to the moderation teams to indicate whether they need additional hands, and how many sets of hands ...

Congratulations AJ! It was always pretty clear that you'd win, but it took more rounds than I expected before you crossed the threshold to be elected. Enjoy the double diamond, moderate the site with calmness and efficiency, and may the modds be ever in your favour!

This site generates a lot of identification questions. The general consensus for a while has been to keep them, but that we need to enforce some quality rules on them. What is your personal opinion on the identification questions we receive on this site?

How are you going to cope with the additional workload of being a moderator in comparison to your activity as a normal user asking and answering questions? To which degree do you feel your new moderator duties might decrease your rather content-wise contributions to the site? How will you balance that if necessary?
