In connection with the moderator elections, we will be holding a Town Hall Chat session with the candidates. This will be an opportunity for members of the community to pose questions to the candidates on the topic of moderation. Participation is completely voluntary. I am working with the candidates to find a time that allows the most participation.
The Town Hall Chat will take place Friday the 4th at 0:00 UTC / This is Thursday the 3rd at 8pm EDT.
Here are the details so far:
- I would like to schedule this towards the beginning of the final election phase. This means that I am looking at the 3rd-5th. As soon as I coordinate with the existing moderators and candidates to find a best fit based on availability, I will edit this post with details on the "when".
- The Town Hall Chat will be a one-hour event using our chat platform. I will update this post with a direct link to the chat room once the event is scheduled.
- The format will be an open discussion. Users are encouraged to pose questions to the candidates regarding their thoughts on moderation.
- After the chat session, a digest of the event will be permanently linked here.
The full transcript of the town hall chat is now available. Thanks to all of the participants. Those nominees that missed the chat can still enter the room and answer questions, so this transcript is subject to change!
