Throughout the beta, we need members from the site whose focus is to engage the community, both in community-building issues and site management. That's why we select a few members from each community to act as temporary, provisional moderators. You can read about the program here: Moderators Pro Tempore.

I am pleased to announce that these members have stepped up and generously volunteered their time to help us assure that this community’s issues are properly addressed.

We want to make this site a huge success, and these members are great examples of exactly the type of people we need to make this site succeed. Please welcome them for the hard work and time they contribute.


8/25/2013: Bryan Dunsmore has stepped down; huge thanks to Bryan for all the time and effort he put in helping this site get off the ground. Meanwhile, Steve Robillard has stepped up to help moderate the site. Please give him a warm welcome!

12/1/2014: jandjorgensen has stepped down; thank you, jan, for your tireless contributions these past months. Luckily, goldilocks has agreed to help out in his stead. Welcome, goldilocks!

Did I overlook anyone?

Almost certainly. There are members who are actively involved and very deserving of recognition. My failure to account for everyone this early on is in no way a slight against them. Ideally, moderators are elected by the community and that's why you'll have your elections once your site has graduated.

Most of all, be respectful and understanding of the Moderators Pro Tem. Members of your community are volunteering their time and learning on the job. It’s a learning experience for everyone.
