I would like to nominate myself for the position of community moderator.
I am the user with the higher reputation on Drupal Answers, and I am the top user (considering the score obtained in answers) for questions tagged 7, 6, nodes, form-api, menu, and blocks which are between the first twelve tags most used.
I review low quality posts, and flag posts that need moderation's attention. My flag weight is currently 660, and I have 298 flags deemed useful versus 23 declined flags. In the six sites where my reputation is higher, I have the "deputy" badge in all of them (except one) for correctly flagging 50 posts, and the "reviewer" badge in all of them for reviewing a hundred posts, and taking action in at least two hundred of them.
Other meta-activities I did are:
- I edited the part of the FAQ that reports the list of off-topic questions
- I created the posts on the meta site tagged with faq
I am active on the meta site for Drupal Answers, which I consider the way to communicate between moderators and users, together the chat room Drupal Answers has.
I am active on Meta Stack Overflow, where my flag weight is 577, and my reputation passed from 257 to 17072 in 10 months. Being active on Meta Stack Overflow, I know what the general consensus about some of the issues that involves also Drupal Answers is, which means I would not use a personal solution when there is already a general consensus on Meta Stack Overflow about the better solution. It means also that I would report on Meta Stack Overflow an issue I noticed on Drupal Answers, if it can be of interest for other sites, or it can involve other sites. I want to make Drupal Answers a better place, even by reporting in the appropriate place the issues I see.
I am a 20k user on English Language & Usage, and a 15k user on Meta Stack Overflow and Drupal Answers.
My participation in different SE sites allows me to better understand how Stack Exchange sites work.
I am a site maintainer on Drupal.org, which means that on that site I have the permission to delete posts, delete or block users account, and I normally deal with spam reported from other users or I deal with the spam I find on api.drupal.org; this is very similar to what the task of a community moderator is.
On Drupal.org, thanks to other permissions I have, I contribute to give to the other users permissions that allow them to participate more actively on Drupal.org, such as giving to the other users the permission to create full projects, or become new maintainers for existing projects.
