I understand that Constable badge will be awarded to users who Served as a pro-tem moderator for at least 1 year or through site graduation.
I didn't understand, what does
pro-tem moderator means?
From Moderator Pro Tempore article on official blog:
How Moderators are Appointed Pro Tem
About a week into the public beta, we will seek out members who are deeply engaged in the community’s development; members who:
- Have a reasonably high reputation score to indicate active, consistent participation.
- Show an interest in their meta’s community-building activities.
- Lead by example, showing patience and respect for their fellow community members in everything they write.
- Exhibit those intangible traits discussed in A Theory of Moderation.
Bonus points for:
- Members with participation in both meta and the parent site (i.e. interest in both community building and expertise in the field).
- Area 51 participation, social network referrals, or blogging about the site.
- Members who have already shown an interest or ability to promote their community.
Pro-temp moderators or pro-tempore moderators are those moderators appointed by Stack Exchange when the site is still in beta phase, before elections. Once elections are open, pro-temp moderators stop to exist, and new elected moderators take their place. It could happen pro-temp moderators are elected, but it is not necessary the case.
