Q: Is there anything you would want to change on the site? And how would you plan on achieving this?
A: I like the way the Interesting Tab works for Stack Overflow, and would love to see it implemented on our site. While you can use it yourself I would love to see this implemented for everyone. As this is written with the purpose for high volumes sites, helping new users so that they return, maintaining the quality and promoting Super User are three things I can do to achieve this...
Q: How do you expect becoming a moderator will change or influence the way you use Super User?
A: I will cycle through newest questions, mod tools (flags, close votes, ...), Meta.SU, and /review and handle them appropriately; furthermore this well help me see more questions pass that I could answer, getting more questions answerd. And keep myself refreshed outside of that cycle I will still help on community-building activities like wikifying reccurent topics, chatting in our rooms and more... :-)
Q: What's your stance on duplicates and how should they be handled?
A: Some users (mostly new ones) don't tend to read everything before asking their problem, as they don't know that our site provides enough search functionality they will continue to ask their question. I think that this behavior is OK... Using my user script it doesn't take much effort to look if his question is a duplicate so it's easy to help him show the duplicate. There are no statistics about this, but I think that the majority of the users does use the duplicate finder. The ratio of new questions that are duplicate probably reveals that...
The way that I think it is appropriate to handle them: If it's clear that it's an exact duplicate, I will close the question (as there is no effort spend to search or check them) as such and ask to flag the question if the extra duplicate does not answer the question. If it's a possible duplicate, I will mention the duplicate and ask him if that resolves his question. I will maintain a check later list for questions awaiting user action...
Q: What's your opinion about the overlap between Super User and Apple.SE/Ubuntu.SE? And when should questions be migrated from Super User to any of these other SE-sites?
A: The overlap is fine, people continue to find our site and we shouldn't send the users around the network if our FAQ allows the question. Questions could benefit migration if our site lacks the activity and expertise to answer the question, I would explain and promote this to the user and ask him to flag the question for migration if he wants his question to have more attention.
Q: Which three nominees do you think are the most suited to become the next moderators and why?
A: In no particular order: DMA57361, nhinkle, KronoS, Sathya
Yes, that's one too much, but I see all four often on the chat and site.
It's a hard choice to remove one from that list... They are all four worth it.
Q: Should we be afraid you'll burn out or become even more fanatic?
A: My guess is that I won't burn out as I love helping people (and thus the community), but I think nobody can tell without actually doing the work on a regular basis. Everyone burns out at some time, being it after several years due to a big change in life or when you get old...
Becoming more fanatic... Maybe. :-)
