As many of you are aware, Robert has been working on a new groups function that will allow us to have a Philosophy Forum group on Able2Know.com. This group is not yet ready but will be soon.
It will function very much like the old Philosophy Forum. We will work hard to uphold standards of civility and constructive discourse, and maintain the community spirit.
I will be an administrator of this group, but I will not be able to do all of the work involved in developing the group and keeping it functioning smoothly on my own. I will need volunteer Moderators to assist me.
Moderator's duties include:
* helping to formulate policy
* removing spam
* making positive contributions to the group
* enforcing our policies
* maintaining topic integrity
I am looking for people who have a good working knowledge of philosophy, but expertise is not required. An ability to work creatively and collaboratively is more important. Patience is also a valued characteristic as the group will launch in a fairly rough form (there will be continuing refinements to both software and policies).
While it is likely that members of the old Philosophy Forum would have the best base of knowledge to help moderate this new group, I will accept applications from anyone.
If you are interested, please contact me at [email protected]
with a brief explanation of why you want to be a Moderator by Friday, August 13th.
Feel free to pass this on to people who may not visit A2K very often, as we are hoping to have a group of moderators selected very soon.
I look forward to creating a thriving philosophical community, with your help.
