According to SE employees in this note and some comments on chat starting here, one thing we can do as a community is to suggest names of possible Pro Tem moderators during the beta phase (before real elections are held when the site goes live). To that effect I am launching this thread. Keep in mind that suggestions here are not binding; this is just a chance to give some input to the SE team for consideration.
I know some other sites have encouraged self-nominations, but my gut tells me* that nominations for other people would be more value. Promoting your traits and how you intend to moderate seems better saved for the real elections when the site goes live.
If you have names to add, please include one name per post and some reasons for including them. If you are that person and you want to decline, please comment.
* No scripture reference provided.
Edit: I found some official guidelines for nominations. Since apparently self-nominations are encouraged, use your own guts. There are also some other qualifications to consider so maybe read it through as you consider any nominations. See also A Theory of Moderation.
