2019 Moderator Election

On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

This election ended Jul 9 at 20:00.

Hi all! I know many of you via other communities and thought I'd throw my hat in the ring.

I've been involved with this community since its inception in Area 51 (great resource to gauge progress towards graduation from beta stage, ask & answer questions!). I've been following EOSIO/EOS since its early Dawn releases (we've come so far!). StackOverflow/StackExchange has been an invaluable resource for me as a software developer and I can't wait to see this community grow to be just as valuable a resource for users & developers alike.

My attributes as a moderator:

  • patient and fair, willing to give a contributor an opportunity to improve their post and await feedback from the community
  • always welcoming and encouraging to new contributors while pointing them to resources to improve their experience & the community as a whole
  • confident making an appropriate decision that abides by the community standards while also elevating the content quality
  • prompt, polite, and communicative with my moderation
  • I want to add that all of the nominations are very knowledgeable & helpful members of this community. We are lucky to have them! Don't forget to vote! – Don P Jul 1 at 8:41

Hello There

I'm Sean, also known as Sandwich. I have been involved in the EOSIO community since May 2017 and became known to this community by helping tens of thousands of people through my tutorials on STEEM, the @eosproject telegram group and authoring a script that produced a snapshot of the EOS ERC20 distribution.

I was an active admin in t.me/eosproject until around July 2018, when time constraints forced me to slow my role. I have been a mentor at every event from the EOSIO Global Hackathon series. I am contracted by Block.one, and am presently working on an overhaul of the developers portal and the internal documentation processes. I have broad comprehension of the core EOSIO toolset. My time is opening up again soon, and I would love to spend more of it here.

Goals:

  • Help maintain the unique community spirit of EOSIO
  • Ensure that a question's title, description and meta are ideal for discoverability.
  • Actively mark duplicate questions to prioritize quality answers.

It's been a pleasure over the last 2 years contributing the EOSIO community, and I hope to continue that contribution on stackexchange. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Wow, Sandwich, you would make an exceptional moderator. Great to see you throw your hat in the ring. – Thomas Cox Jun 27 at 15:48
  • Sandwich is always there to answer questions in Telegram. Very knowledgeable of the protocol and there from the start. – Nat Jun 28 at 2:03

Hello everyone, my name is Phillip and I would like to nominate myself to be a moderator for the EOS.IO Stack Exchange community.

I have been active in EOS since July 2018, shortly after the main net launched. Since then I have become a member of the EOS42 block producer, the lead developer of the Chintai token leasing exchange, started a smart contract security auditing business, and I am an adviser to several other projects. I also take part in all the Stack Exchange reviews and answer questions when I can.

EOS.IO is still a very young technology, even though so much has happened and been built within the last year. I expect that this Stack Exchange community will grow quickly as we approach mass adoption, and it is very important that we do not scare away new members, but encourage them to participate and help us all to grow.

If I am made a moderator, I will do my best to deal fairly with any issues that arise, whilst keeping the forum clean and respectful. I want to guide our newest members to the best resources to get them started and further help our community to grow.

I look forward to the opportunity to further enhance this exciting field of technology with you!
