Welcome and thank you for you continued contributions. What you're describing is considered a "Signature" on a post and they are highly discouraged in Stack Exchange platform. You're more than welcome to edit your profile page to include "Thank you and as always, God Bless" which everyone will see when they roll over your name or visit ...
You get an inbox notification for moderator elections on every site where you are able to vote for the candidates. According to the election page itself (yellow note on the right):
Any community member with 150 reputation may vote in the election.
So if you have enough points on SO to vote in the election, you of course get notified for it. How else ...
Firstly, I'm going to focus on this as a general question because I'm not a huge fan of calling out specific people. I'm not quite sure what your specific concerns are here. The mods who are active seem very capable and are on top of moderation issues (there are exactly zero unhandled flags), so picking on a single mod who's been MIA doesn't really make ...
I'm not sure how inspirational this will be but I would consider it a warts-and-all account of what being a moderator can be like. I'm certain many people consider it a cushy title with super-powers where we get to boss people around and delete bad content... But it's actually a very involving job that puts demands on your time-management, your patience and ...
I think you're talking about these two recent posts:
2 year old user is a new contributor?
Is it correct that search on AskUbuntu ignores code blocks and inline codes?
These were edited by Shog9 and Adam Lear. These two guys are Stack Exchange employees, so they have network-wide phenomenal cosmic powers and mod diamonds everywhere they go. They don't have ...
As I understand it, it is a moderator who does so.
Any user with at least 3000 reputation points may cast a close (or reopen) vote. On this site, diamond moderators rarely participate in close voting, because the community here is relatively active in close-voting and reviewing, but on other Stack Exchange sites, moderators are more often involved in close ...
If you think somebody is being rude, flag that post/comment.
We'll talk to them if we think it's becoming a problem.
"Be nice" is a rule around here and the mods do everything we can to make sure people at least attempt to get along with others. Even if we have to beat it into them.
You are a member of the Stack Overflow community. You currently have 227 reputation there and have contributed 5 answers. The fact that you are more active here doesn't change the fact that you are also a member of SO and, as such, have every right to vote there.
I think you're reading to much into this. While you (and I) are among those few users who ...
I have to admit I had a hard time up-voting your resignation message as I find it sad to see you go. But I guess I can not change your mind in this matter being a mod on Ask Ubuntu even tho you where a good choice and you brought this way the U&L and Ask Ubuntu community closer together.
I still hope you will continue to hang out in chat and for the ...
Because it copied a whole swathe of text from another site that didn't make its content available through a permissive enough license. In short: because it's copyright infringement.
Read the Subscriber Content section of the Terms and Conditions you agreed to, notably:

I fully understand you buddy. 100%. Same reason I stepped down and let someone else help out. Between life changes, family, work and more, it has become VERY hard to maintain the same level of productivity and engagement we had when we started. Just stay positive and you will do great champ. Big hugs.
What you're referring to is probably editors and it takes 2000 rep to become an editor.
On the main site, if the user is a few 100 rep, he's just a user that has to go through a review process before his/her edits are approved.
On Meta, only 2000 rep users can edit as per Zanna in the comments.
For all privileges and the rep they need look here
I'm not ...
Even moderators are not notified that a flag has been raised on their own message.
Moderators (but not 10k users) can see a history of flagged message for any user including themselves. This log does not include the identity of the flagger.
Nope, we can't see your individual upvotes or downvotes.
We can see any voting trends that appear, in case you start using your votes to target other users (which is against the rules), or other users target you, but that is the extent that we can see.
If you do a custom flag, only moderators and Stack Exchange employees can see that. If you want to have a discussion, you can ping someone on chat and they will assist you.
Failing that, I do publish my email, and so do several others of the moderators, but We will probably just move the conversation to a private chat room as soon as we get it.
Personally, I love the idea of occasional mod meetings, but I'd want them to be less formal than the one mentioned in the post you linked to. Since I have been a mod, there haven't been any such meetings and I don't recall hearing about them. However, there is a private room for Ask Ubuntu mods which is great for asynchronous discussion of whatever comes up ...
Not being able to see the deleted question here is a small list of some relevant information:
Did your answer just contain the link: Your answer is in another castle: when is an answer not an answer? Wait to have enough rep to comment
Did you copy text (even with quote boxes some sites don't allow this, And block-quoting an entire article is hardly fair use)...
If you ask who can do direct edits, everyone with more than 2000 reputation.
Remember: AskUbuntu and any other Stackexchange site is moderated by its users mostly.
When it comes to be a moderator they are getting elected if there is need for expanding the moderator base.
