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 each community’s issues are properly addressed:

Christophe Strobbe Flimzy Tom Au Hatchet

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.

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 the site graduates. 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.

    Our policy is normally to only select 3 pro-tem moderators. However, one of the moderators was absent when the initial invitation was sent out, only to respond at the same time as we selected a new choice. Ergo, we appointed 4 this time around.

  • This is only so awesome. I'm pretty sure there were much more people that waited for this post more than me. Congratulations to Flimzy, Quill, Tom and Hatchet!

  • I suppose he/she did, but StackExchange did not mention any names in the e-mail they sent me.
