Well, we've made it out of the rough, (Private Beta) and are well on our way into the Public Beta gaining more and more users daily. According to the Moderator Pro Tempore, the SE Team will pick up (usually 3) users to become Moderators more or less a week into Public Beta, until we graduate, so I think we can start with nominations. After graduation there will be actual elections where users can nominate and vote.

Please read the following carefully..

As per the blog post, Moderators should:

  • Have a reasonably high reputation score to indicate active, consistent participation.
  • Show an interest in their meta’s community-building activities.
  • Lead by example, showing patience and respect for their fellow community members in everything they write.
  • Exhibit those intangible traits discussed in A Theory of Moderation.

Bonus points for:

  • Members with participation in both meta and the parent site (i.e. interest in both community building and expertise in the field).
  • Area 51 participation, social network referrals, or blogging about the site.
  • Members who have already shown an interest or ability to promote their community.

Additional Info

  • You can self-nominate or nominate others. Each nomination should be posted as a separate answer. Link the name to the user’s profile (parent and meta) so everyone can see their activity. Links to other activities may be helpful: Area 51 participation, participation in other sites, blog posts reviewing or announcing the site, etc.

  • If the nomination was posted by a 3rd-party, the nominee should indicate their acceptance by editing the answer, adding that they accept the nomination. Optionally they can write something about themselves.

Candidates will be contacted and three of them will be selected to act as provisional Moderators until the community holds formal elections after the Beta period.

Some of the promotion I have done.

  • I am familiar with a very large portion of Blender, from its codebase and history to it's modeling and compositing tools etc.
  • I don't work at the moment (finishing up my CS degree) so I can easily dedicate several hours daily to the site.
  • My timezone allows me be around when the other mods more than likely won't be UTC 00:00 is 7pm here.

All that being said, I am very interested in the future of this site and wish to be a central part of it. Good luck to everyone else!

I would like to nominate myself:

  • I have tons of experience with Blender and have been working with it since 2.49a

  • Even though I'm mainly a blender artist (portfolio), I have technical skills also (I know how to program in python)

  • I know how to answer questions clearly and concisely as I have a successful YouTube channel where I teach Blender tutorials(http://youtube.com/thespastickangaroo) (I also make sure to let my subscribers know about Blender Stack exchange on my channel).

  • I'm in high school, so I have free time to put into this site(I already put about 3 hours into the site every day and spend a lot of the day on chat).

  • Throughout the beta, I've been very active to answer questions/edit posts/vote.

Anyway, I hope this site is extremely successful as I believe it will be an awesome resource to Blender users.

Profile for iKlsR at Blender Meta Stack Exchange, Q&A about the site for people who use Blender to create 3D graphics, animations, or games

I would like to nominate myself.

  • I am very experienced with the technical side of Blender, having seven years of experience coding in Python
  • I am particularly experienced with all parts of the modeling process in Blender, having used these tools in an architectural context professionally for several years
  • I can, and do, dedicate a significant amount of my time to this site

I am very excited to see this site develop, and I want to do everything possible to help it become a successful part of the larger Blender community. Here's what I have done for the community so far:

  • I have read every single question posted on this site
  • I actively work to develop and promote good ideas, as evidenced by my voting, commenting, reviewing, and editing rates on the Blender beta. I am the top voter on the site
  • I am on the site for 13 hours every weekday (from 15:00 to 4:00 UTC), and am very often the first to comment on or answer new posts

Whether I am elected as a moderator or not, I will do everything I can to help this site grow and establish itself as a valuable resource for the entire Blender community.

I would like to nominate myself for the role:

  • I have a relatively good grasp of Blender and have been using it since about 2.32 (possibly earlier) or so.
  • I am not a Blender "expert" by some standards, but I think this helps to have good understanding of the position of the average user as opposed to only seeing things from the "professional" perspective.
  • I have actively promoted the site since I knew about its proposal.
  • I'm a moderator on Askubuntu, so I'm familiar with the mod tools and the duties of a moderator.
  • I spend a lot of time on the chat during the week when I can, and pop on to the site often during the day (I don't time myself, sorry) to check for questions/answers, review tasks, and tags.
  • This is a kitten.
    Secret weapon
    Therefore you should vote for me.
