On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

Hi everyone. You most likely know me from the tezos-baking slack. I've been around since the launch of betanet, and my bakers baked the first betanet blocks. I run the bakers that the Tezos Foundation delegates to, and have been a big proponent of Tezos since before the network launched. I'm looking forward to working together to expand developer knowledge and grow the Tezos ecosystem.

Hi everyone, I've started participating in the Tezos community fairly recently, by building open source tools to lower the entry level barrier for developers on Tezos.

My company Stove Labs - has recently partnered up with TQGroup. Which in my view only affirms my dedication to support the Tezos community. You can find the announcment here.

Since Tezos StackExchange has launched, i've been actively participating in answering development related questions. Looking forward to the vote!

Hey everyone, I'm a long time Tezos supporter and developer and have assisted with reviews and moderation of the current TSE. I love answering questions and supporting other answers with additional details. I frequent the TSE daily, and take the time to go through my review queues and edit questions when required.

Hi everyone,

I'm a fan of tezos since the beginning.

I am trying my best within my free time to participate in bringing together all actors of the wide tezos ecosystem (devs, users, bakers etc...) in order to foster the necessary and healthy dialogue so that everyone is on the same page about what tezos is and is not, educate people on the technology in way that is as simple as possible to understand and explain why I believe tezos a prime candidate for being the next standard of decentralized smart-contract platform.

To that end it is crucial that the community owns a space where they can persist the core technical knowledge that is the backbone of tezos and which any new joiner to the community needs to get familiar with in order to start their journey.

Although Tezos community is very active in a variety of media (riot, TG, slack etc...) Stack Exchange is in my opinion the best platform to be this "store of knowledge".

This is for this reason that I have been an avid supporter since the beginning of our collective effort to bring a Tezos Stack Exchange domain to life and that i would be honored to become one of its moderators if the community is ok with that!

Hi everyone,

I have been a supporter of the Tezos project for a long time... since 2014 ! I am a senior developer at OCamlPro (mostly in OCaml, sometimes C, hacking on Debian Linux), former scientist for 15 years at Inria in peer-to-peer networks and programming languages for distributed systems, with contributions to open-source software (I developed the MLdonkey p2p client for example).

I had a few contributions in the Tezos prototype (mostly in the networking layer), I am a member of the TzScan team (for example, data extraction from contexts, displayed most of the time as charts), of the Liquidity team (I wrote the first prototype) and of the IronTez team (a private Tezos node with extensions for local deployments, for example minimized storage or additional Michelson instructions). I am also of course working on non-Tezos related projects, with or without blockchains.

Since I spend most of my time developing software, I have not a lot of time to discuss on chats, so I find StackExchange a good compromise to help others use Tezos when I have some free time. I also often tell friends at OCamlPro when questions are available requiring their specific skills.

This election is over.
