I would like to express my interest in becoming a moderator. Introduction My name is Mark, I am working on my M.Sc. in Computer Science with a focus on Automatic Speech Recognition and working as a part-time programmer. While I am neither a die-hard Bitcoin expert, nor a financial expert, I believe that I have achieved a solid understanding of Bitcoin. ...

I wish. Unfortunately we either have to close/delete/whatever outright or abstain from voting. I tend to abstain unless it's really obvious or the question already has 3+ votes on it.

While I cannot compete with Murch's amazing contribution to this community, I do think we are in need of more moderators and as such I am volunteering as well to be a moderator for this community. What I have to offer I'm mostly a developer with tons of experience with Bitcoin. I mostly work with JavaScript and its Node.js component developing the backend ...

I don't know if you're going to get a usable answer to this. Even calculating an "average" workload has such a wide variance as to be meaningless. It depends wildly on the moderator, the scope of the site, the involvement of the community, where the site is in it's development, the alignment of the planets, what's on TV tonight, etc. Moderators are there ...

I seems to me that Bitcoin.SE members got a bit overwhelmed by the amount of work that they were stuck with. Fact is that there are few active experts, but a disproportionate amount of dabblers that come to ask one question and zip away again. There is a very small middle-ground, the people that would help by raising flags and voting. When I rediscovered ...

December 24th Burninated start. December 22nd Updated Canonical question for "Unconfirmed transactions": Why is my transaction not getting confirmed and what can I do about it? November 11th Sorry, I forgot to post intermittenly. Added tags for cloud-mining, cex.io, ghash.io. Created Canonical question for "Getting started with mining questions": In ...

Speaking for myself, the load has been pretty low, near zero. I would say my normal participation on the site is at least ten times the amount of stuff I do with my moderator hat on. I think I've taken, maybe, ten moderator actions and spent maybe two hours actively coordinating with the other moderators. There just haven't been that many issues. 99% of a ...

I'm kinda doing my best to clear the review queues every time I come here. But heh Thank you for reviewing 20 Close Votes today; come back in 9 hours to continue reviewing. So, that's all for today. FYI. I don't come regularly because this site is not helpful to me. Very poor quality due to the lack of participation from experts. Less than 20% of ...

I strongly believe in Stack Exchange/Stack Overflow based communities, and I'm especially passionate about distributed technologies such as Bitcoin. I've been a member of Stack Overflow since almost the very beginning, and was always interested in systems structured around measurable reputation. I must be honest, I do believe in a future where these ...

Participation in meta is always difficult to encourage when it is low. Typically, I find that the more controversial sites, the ones where people get religious about the topic (that includes the religious sites) have very active metas, and naturally so. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is not terribly controversial. Actually, it is closer to intriguing for the ...

I would say often times people are scared to participate in Meta discussion, or really any sort of discussion on SE, especially beta sites. I'll explain why. I made an account awhile ago, but even before that I lurked on the site for quite a bit before I decided to create an account. Why? Because SE in general can seem a little pretentious at times. I ...

I'm going to continue to monitor meta activity, and it is improving. Remember, you have the 'featured' tag you can apply which causes questions to appear in the community bulletin, and that does attract a bit of attention. When we get close to a tipping point where discussions here typically get at least two or three answers, I'll throw a fun mini-contest ...
