Why the hell would anyone want to spend their spare time "dealing with the technical implementation of community consensus, dealing with emergencies, and intervening against crosswiki vandalism"?
For the lulz?
Anyway, let's not just immediately assume that this election is going to be a farce. I think we should wait until there are a few candidates, maybe some discussion entries, things like that - then
we can assume it's going to be a farce.
I suspect Mr. Colton wanted to draw our attention to this
election because, in recent months, we've pointed out that a number of meta admins are underage, and that this is not a particularly good thing. The stewards are the ones who would, in theory, have the power to revoke those users' admin rights. (Am I reasonably close to the mark, Mr. Colton?)
