Throughout the beta, we need members from the site whose focus is to engage the community, address issues and lead the way in site management. That's why we select a few members from each community to act as temporary, provisional Moderators. You can read about the program here: Moderators Pro Tempore.
I am pleased to announce that these members have stepped up and generously volunteered their time to help us assure that each community's issues are properly addressed.
We want to make this site a huge success, and these members are great examples of exactly the type of people we need.
Did I overlook anyone?
Almost certainly. There are many members who are actively involved and very deserving of recognition. My failure to account for everyone this early on is in no way a slight against them. Ideally, Moderators are elected by the community and that's why you'll have your elections after your site makes it through graduation.
Most of all, be respectful and understanding of the Moderators Pro Tem. Members of your community are volunteering their time and learning on the job. This is a learning experience for everyone.
