We decided to take the plunge and hire an employee to act as our in-house editor. This new employee's primary responsibility will be around editorial functions for the soon to be relaunced Localism site. They will also be selecting featured posts for ActiveRain until we are able to develop and test our community moderating platform.
Yes you heard right on both accounts!
We are working on a Localism redesign, and we are going to be developing a process where our members will play a greater role in selecting featured posts.
What this means, is that effective today, we will no longer be using the services of our team of volunteer moderators.
For almost a year now, the featuring of posts has been handled by a team of moderators. This team is made up of a diverse array of members from the network. The job they have done in keeping the network vibrant has been nothing short of amazing in my opinion.
There have been three moderators in particular who have been the face of the moderators. Colleen Kulikowski, Laurie Manny, Rich Jacobson, and Mark Flanders have been instrumental in the vitality we have experienced in the past year. Their efforts have often times been thankless, questioned, and misunderstood. Even so, they have been unbelievably generous with their time, their input, and their willingness to help.
I want to personally thank Colleen, Laurie, Rich, and Mark. Thank you!!!!
There are also a group of "hidden moderators". While we strive at ActiveRain to be transparent, it was decided a while ago that in order to get anyone else to volunteer to help moderate we would have to protect their identities. I will leave it up to them to decide if they want to reveal themselves at this point.
As always, your comments, questions and concerns are welcome and appreciated.
Friends, followers, and connections are the way of the future.
