Under one user's nomination (michaelpri) are some valid comments that might better be answered by a conversation with the users themselves.
I don't know if this is done only for elected mods, but some sites create rooms where users can ask questions to their heart's content without leaving long comment threads under the nomination, and the nominee can provide more detailed answers.
Anyone can ask a question, and the other users can read all questions and answers and better evaluate the nominees.
Would this be a good idea here? I know I'm new enough to the community that I have not had interactions with all the moderators. I know we're not voting for the nominees, though, so perhaps it's not important?
Just a thought.
