If you're on board with this mission, then I'd love for you to be a moderator of this forum.
- Willing to delete or rewrite disrespectful, unhelpful or unproductive questions and comments, even if they are true, accurate or in normal situations (outside of this forum) appropriate
- Add to the community by answering questions, informing and educating with patience and charity
- Willing to put in the time to make good arguments for positions, and have them criticized (respectfully)
- Willing to be wrong, and to admit it.
(Some optional but very interesting reading on this approach to moderation can be found here: http://lesswrong.com/lw/c1/wellkept_gardens_die_by_pacifism/)
All questions are optional, but the more I know about you, the easier it will be for me to tell whether you'd be good for the forum. Answers can be pretty short, just a few sentences.
Even if you don't become a moderator, please come participate in this experiment by asking and answering questions!
