How many full-time* moderators will be elected 2015?

I think this question should now urgently be settled once and for all, before the final scores of the upcoming voting phase are known.

* By full-time moderator  I mean moderators who will be able to fullfill their duties most of the time, conversely to for example Eduardo Guerras who is rather a "symbolic moderator" because the time he can spend on PhysicsOverflow is constrained to almost zero at present. As discussed here, if anything @UrsSchreiber would probably at most take the role of a symbolic moderator without duties too, to lend PO some professionality.

I thought of this too - given how happy people are with all the candidates proposed, we don't want a sitation where 9 or 10 moderators are moderating the site, if we adopt a "score of +2" policy : ) I think 2 full-time mods would be appropriate, because I'm already here, and only resigning at the end of the year.

I definitely think the site needs one moderator dealing with the mundane politics, and the other two academics to help attract their peers here.

@Physicsnewbie yes, this is why I really hope we will get Urs at least as a "symbolic" moderator ...
