This is the first “yearly wrap-up” for users with extended privileges on Discourse (leaders, moderators, administrators).
The TL;DR is that we expect everybody who currently has privileges on Discourse to say whether they want to continue having those privileges (no response means giving up the privilege). This is also a space for users to ask for more privileges or nominate others that they believe should have more privileges. You can also nominate others or yourself by a private message to the Community Manager (me) or the SGB. Preferably, privileged users or new nominees would also share past accomplishments/experiences and plans/visions for the future of the forum.
All users ale also welcome to voice their feedback/wishes/… for privileged users.
The period to react here is until the end of October (anytime on earth).
Read Selection and accountability for forum moderators and leaders for a full description of what this means, what individual roles can do and what we expect of privileged users.
As I write this, the privileged users are:
(can do literally anything on the site)
(can edit/moderate all public content, can ban users)
(can edit/reformat posts, recategorize topics and other mostly maintanence/gardening tasks)

Thank you all, you’ve been great!
It takes a lot of effort to keep this site helpful and nice and I am glad you took your part. Looking forward to working closely with those who choose to keep their active roles and hope that I will get to see everybody else at least once in a while!
