As AVP is rapidly nearing being re-branded to specifically fit the Video community, it's time to think about the users that can lead this site and community through a renewed beta phase. It's the job of moderators to step in occasionally and do what the community can't, and to act as a liaison between this community and Stack Exchange. These three folks will have our ear, and will work with us to make sure the needs of this community are being met.
Once the transition is finished, the existing moderator team will remain moderators on Sound Design SE alone. Video needs a few great users to step up! They're currently moderators on both sites to help with the migrations and transition.
Moderators should be:
- Consistently patient and fair in their interactions with new users
- Able to give an hour or two of their time each week to moderate
- Interested in having the responsibility of being a moderator
- Knowledgeable in the major tags to the point that they can judge the quality of a post, though high reputation is definitely not a requirement
If you're interested in leading the Video Production Stack Exchange community, or think that another user would be a great fit for the job, nominate yourself (or them) as an answer to this question to let us know you're interested.
When nominating, link the name to the user’s profile (parent and meta). Links to other activities may be helpful: Area 51 participation, participation in other sites, blog posts reviewing or announcing the site, etc.
If the nomination was posted by a 3rd-party, the nominee should indicate their acceptance by editing the answer to add that they accept the nomination and optionally write something about themselves.
While votes on nominations are a guiding factor in our decision, we don't make our selections based on votes alone. We might also approach some users that weren't nominated or didn't nominate to see if they might be interested, based on their previous participation.
For more information about the Stack Exchange moderation philosophy and the initial moderator selection process, see here:
AJ and Rory have accepted and been appointed, but we still need one more moderator to complete the team. Would you like to help lead this community, or know of a user that would do a good job? Let us know in an answer below!
Due to the recent split from Sound, it's rather difficult for me to go through the list of users and contact folks individually, as I can't be certain that some didn't move the bulk of their activity over to Sound Design (though Video remains extremely active post-split). Hence - if you'd like to be considered, I really need to hear from you!
