After the experimental pro tem election I noticed that, unlike on some other SE sites, the Moderator Pro Tem Announcement has never been edited to reflect moderator changes. This self-answered Q&A is an attempt to piece together the history of Parenting moderators; edits are welcome.


Timeline of Parenting moderators

2011-04-27: cabbey, HedgeMage, and Torben Gundtofte-Bruun are appointed

2011-07-19: HedgeMage became a Stack Exchange employee, Beofett is appointed

2013-12-13: cabbey and Torben Gundtofte-Bruun step down

2014-01-06: balanced mama and Karl Bielefeldt are appointed

2014-10-09: balanced mama steps down

2015-02-18: anongoodnurse and Rory Alsop are appointed, Beofett steps down

2015-04-17: Erica is appointed

Details that remain unclear

  • Moderator page says that anongoodnurse was appointed 2015-12-08, not 2015-02-18.
  • I think Beofett was a moderator from before I joined, at least (and the comment in 2015-02-18 says "from the beginning"), not sure why it wasn't mentioned in the initial post. – Joe May 15 '18 at 21:30
  • From this post it's clear Beofett was a moderator at least near the beginning, as it's from August 2011. – Joe May 15 '18 at 21:53

    Okay - I managed to find what happened with Beofett and Hedgemage. For some reason that post was deleted, but I tracked it down and we reopened it (as we decided it didn't have any obvious reason for being closed/deleted). – Joe May 17 '18 at 14:25
  • @Joe you can see when a moderator was appointed by checking their info from the mod profile. By the way, nice post! I copied the idea into Spanish.SE -> Histórico de moderadores de Spanish.SE / Timeline of Spanish.SE moderators and added the flair to each one of the moderators on every moment. – fedorqui Sep 27 '19 at 9:44
