I do have a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Toronto in Canada, where I graduated with Honours and was on the Dean's List for scholastic achievement. My ...

The SE community team has been notified that we wish to appoint Arnon Weinberg as pro tem mod for this site. This, simply based on the gross vote score. Thanks to both of the candidates to share their views to advance this site. Both are excellent candidates. We'll keep you posted.

I received the following feedback anonymously via my personal website: Feedback for Jeromy Anglim♦: + Expertise, although not required to be a mod, I'm glad Jeromy brings all of his knowledge of the discipline to the table. If he doesn't know the answer (and I swear he's got a database full of them somewhere), he looks it up. He is a positive role model ...

I received the following feedback anonymously via my personal website: Feedback for Steven Jeuris♦: + Unique perspective. I think that Steven's background helps him provide unique insight into CogSci as he's sort of in the field, but he brings a ton of related knowledge. + Fair and unbiased. There was a post about sexual deviants that I remember him ...

I received the following feedback anonymously via my personal website: Feedback for Josh Gitlin♦: + Enthusiasm. Myself, as someone who is a mod on site(s) outside of their area of expertise, I really dig how you encourage new users with their questions as a tool for you to learn about the subject matter as well. You're our head cheerleader I think. + ...

Such changes are beyond what we can do given that this site is only part of the bigger Stack Exchange network. On the meta site of Stack Exchange however, this topic has been raised before. In case you are interested you can fight for the proposal there, but on this site, this is beyond our reach.

Congrats Alice! And thanks for all the work Josh. In regards to: One of my long-time goals here is getting us out of beta. The ways to get there are, basically, two-fold. From my vantage point this is: 1) passively go on as we do now and slowly build this site further; or 2) actively change site focus, name changes, improving site stats through ...

Short answer No we are not - you assumed we (i.e., the mod team of Psych&Neurosci) were contacted, and we were not. Background I commented in your linked Phil Meta post: AliceD - My apologies for our unresponsiveness. I pretty much always respond to summons in the teacher's lounge - but this question was not brought t[o] my attention. There are three ...

It never did. I closed your Q because it was self-help. You edited by adding... How can I do a controlled experiment or test to determine which chemical is giving me a mental advantage in creative thinking? ...and now it's OK for me.

Given that us Pro-Tem mods were appointed through self-nomination, I feel it's fitting if I add my own self-evaluation. First, a few stats: Since the site launched, there have been over 700 flags raised. Our all-time average flag handling time is approximately 12 hours. Our average flag handling time over the past quarter is approximately 2.5 hours Our ...

If you voted to close once, it's gone. It doesn't actually matter if the post was closed or reopened or your vote expired or whatever. Mod-only closings/openings don't act any differently. No. Non-mods only get one close/reopen vote per question. If it's reopened you can't vote again. Moderators get unlimited "votes" in either direction because they're not ...
