This post is to let all Zcash Community Forum users know that we (the Moderators and the Zcash Foundation) have been closely following the feedback regarding the moderation of this forum.
Today we are announcing big changes to the fourm moderation team to address these concerns.
To help foster a more community led forum the two moderators from the ECC have stepped down and are no longer moderating. We want to thank @Daira and @Elenita for their years of contributions and look forward to their continued community support as regular forum members.
Previously community mods have been part of the mod team but none are currently active. Considering this change leaves only @Shawn as the primary active moderator, and @Antonie as a backup (who will not be moderating on a daily basis) we feel this is an opportunity to bring more community members onto the moderation team.
In the spirit of decentralization and inclusion we would like to invite members of the community to become part of the moderation team. There are many great contributors who we feel would make good moderators but we don’t want to choose for you, we want the community to make the choice.
With that in mind, the Zcash Community Forum is seeking two volunteers that are not associated with the ECC or ZFND to become moderators. This will make three active mods (the majority of which will be from the community) with Antonie serving as backup in cases of dispute.
The Zcash Foundation bears legal responsibility for these forums and applicants to the moderation team must be willing to uphold the Zcash Foundation Values in addition to adhering to the forums Code of Conduct.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a moderator please feel free to post in this thread, if more than two are interested then we will hold a forum poll to elect two community members to become part of the moderation team.
Thank you and we look forward to building a stronger Zcash community together.
