Open call for Moderator suggestions

Post by Admin_PC » Tue Jan 15, 2019 4:24 pm

We're looking to back-fill 2, preferably 3 moderator positions.
Would appreciate any serious suggestions or volunteers.
It would be nice to have at least one candidate with a background in Vajrayana.

Rotating moderation staff to prevent concentration of authority and burnout.

Why not be radical and have no moderators?

Between using the Foe function and just plain ignoring & shunning, I think things will be fine.

I have not been terribly active here, though it may be growing. I do not expect that it's likely that I'd be considered a good candidate for moderation as such, but I suppose I would offer my services with hesitation. For what it's worth, I moderate the Reddit Buddhism subreddit under the handle 'En_Lighten' and if there's a need, you could certainly pore through my history there. I have been involved with the Vajrayana for a good... maybe 17 years or so, generally Kagyu/Nyingma, and continue to be, along with having studied the Pali Canon at some length, various Mahayana Sutras, Mahayana commentaries, and Tibetan writers.

I also work as a physician and I have generally small slices of time throughout the weekdays where I can check into forums, make quick posts, etc between patients. My time is limited at night as I have small children, but nonetheless I will check in at times. I'm in the Eastern US time zone.

If it would be helpful, I would give moderation here a go. If it's decided that I'm not a good candidate, have made poor quality posts, haven't been active enough here, or am just generally unliked, I certainly do not need to moderate here, and in truth I am making this post with some hesitation. Also if people felt that it was inappropriate to have one person moderating two separate online forums, of course that would be a consideration.

Regardless, I appreciate that moderation of online forums can be a challenge and I hope that appropriate moderators appear as is beneficial.

Best wishes.
Therein is nothing to remove
And thereto not the slightest thing to add.
The perfect truth viewed perfectly
And perfectly beheld is liberation.
