Community elected moderators on this site are very active. This is mostly due to a fact that our rules do require a lot of moderation.
However, this does not mean that everything needs to be done by moderators, and in particular I'm thinking of:
- welcoming users and introducing them to the rules of the site
- editing questions so they have the correct tags, grammar and typography
- editing answers so they appropriately include citations or links to sources
- engaging users on meta and explaining the site rules to them.
I believe these things can be done, and will be best done, by you -- the community. We'd very much like to see more involvement. I understand we have a lot of users who avoid posting much because, let's say it, posting here is difficult, and moderating even more so, but I don't think the same could be said about the activities above. In fact, it could be a great way of gaining more confidence and throwing your hat in the arena.
How can we help you moderate more?
