Traditionally sites have 2-3 moderators and start with pro-tems, etc. However, the sites often don't have much need for extra policing for subjective arguments.
I'm going to propose that this site have potentially a different moderation model, in that we probably need people who are experienced in dealing with problematic users to assist in one area, but for the regular site moderation to be open to new moderators. Possibly a 2+2 instead of 2-3 "green" moderators (eh, nowadays it seems most sites get one veteran and two green, but I don't keep stats or anything).
This post is about discussion of what are the risks of not having experienced mods versus the potential to run this site right into the ground. It's very apparent that some questions can have good objective answers, but we as a community need to foster all questions to trend towards objective answers.
This is going to require experienced posters from all sites participating especially for the first few months to ensure all questions are of a high quality, rewriting them as often as possible to show people how to ask. We need to all strive to keep the site of a higher quality.
I'm not abdicating the need for a strong core community, I'm quite passionate about that in fact. What I'm asking is does this community need experienced moderators in addition to green moderators from the first day, or am I overthinking things?
