In the light of a recent spike in spam signups and posts on this forum, we're looking to widen our circle of moderators to deal with the traffic. Its as simple as monitoring the RSS feed frequently, and clicking "mark as spam" on a post/thread.
It's also a great responsibility to keep with our open community spirit (<Yoda quote here>).
Lacking distinct community guidelines, I'd like to point you to a great online book resource for this:
The "Communication" chapter of "Producing Open Source Software" (http://producingoss.com/en/communications.html).
To be clear, we're trying to get rid of spam, not members you might not agree with (or that behave unprofessionally).
So: If you've been around here for a while (at least three months), have been an active community member (at least 150 posts), we'd really like your help in keeping this forum a high quality resource.
Please apply for moderation with me (ingo at silverstripe dot com), and briefly outline why you're a good fit for the job. Also let us know if you want to cover all forums, or just a specific subset. We're particularly keen on people outside of the NZ timezone, as we've got a reasonable moderator coverage with core members there.
Thanks for your help!
