Let’s pick this up again to achieve clarity. We just kind of swept the whole admin question under the rug. However, I think it’s a very important question and since we want to use Discourse as one of our main communications platform it’s even more important.
We have some limitations and crucial information regarding admins:
I would suggest everyone nominates 5 people they absolutely trust to be admins of this forum, based on factors such as time of involvement, having met them in person or having had a call with them, history of good decisions, engagement in the community, organization of events, commitment to openness, etc.
My nominations are:
@evalica - long-term involvement, organization of the FOSDEM Open Source Design room 2017
@simonv3 - long-term involvement, website and overall organization work
@belenbarrospena - long-term involvement, organization of the first two FOSDEM Open Source Design rooms, job board submission form
@jdittrich - organization of the regular Berlin meetup, coordination work
@victoria-bondarchuk - organization of the FOSSASIA Design track, talks at different events
(I only did not nominate @bnvk because he specifically stated he does not want to be very involved in the forum.)
Your nominations please.
