We're looking for a forum leader for the Python forum here at Dream.In.Code. Here's what a forum leader is:
Forum leaders are members who are passionate about the topic(s) of the forum(s) they are leading. Forum leaders should be evangelists for their areas and help build community and get people talking. Forum leaders may also help keep their forums clean by moving and editing posts and topics. A Forum Leader is not a Dream.In.Code moderator/admin - forum leaders don't directly handle issues with members
If you've been around a while and are interested in helping get people talking in the Python forum, reply here or PM me. Thanks!
Can we recommend people? Because if we can, I recommend Motoma. He is great at python and has been a huge help to me and as I have seen, many other people. Also, while I am posting, how much experience would you need to be a forum leader? Not that I am going to run for it, but just wondering.
Also, to answer your question. We're not looking for experts to be forum leaders. We're just looking for folks who are passionate about the language/area they are leading. Friendly. Outgoing. Helpful. And who understand the rules and can get people talking and help keep resource threads, FAQs, etc. updated and such.
I know I haven't talked on the board much lately, but my schedule is starting to open up a bit more. I would consider it an honor and a privilege if you'd give me a chance at this. What do you guys think about letting me take the rest of the year as something of a probationary period? If the board's consensus is that I'm not doing enough, I will respectfully and graciously step down.
