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. ...

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 agree that it is good practice to add a comment when downvoting and I believe that moderators should lead by example. That said, I don't know where you get the idea that a moderator is downvoting you. There are three moderators here: me, David Schwartz and David Perry. There's a couple of hundred other users with enough reputation to downvote.

Well that's kind of the point of downvoting. People can only read so many questions and we want the best questions to get the most attention, both from people looking for helpful answers and from people looking to answer a question. If you're asking Ripple questions, I think it's because we still have some users who downvote every Ripple question. Whether ...

Sorry to see you go Nick, I've only been here for a little while but I've seen you round a lot and you've done a lot of good work for the site. Best of luck for whatever you're moving on to

I'm interested in joining the Bitcoin moderation team. I joined nine months after the public beta started; I've been part of Bitcoin.SE for almost two years now. I'm mostly interested in the technical background of Bitcoin, but I also like questions about the social and economic aspects. I'll be sorry to see these guys go. (Especially David Schwartz!) I hope ...

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 ...

Well, I am sorry to hear that. :-/ Thank you for all the work that you have put in.

My usual procedure would be to only tackle topics that I feel reasonably sure about. However, it is acceptable to take a question as a point to start your own research in order to answer it. A lot of questions can be answered to the asker's satisfaction when one has a bit of background knowledge and knows where to find the remaining bits and pieces. Also, ...

I'm a little late to the game here, as I tend to spend more time on the Bitcoin SE rather than the Bitcoin meta SE, but I would be interested in helping the Bitcoin SE community by being a moderator. Since discovering the Bitcoin SE, I have found it to be the most useful and structured place to get my questions answered, and I have answered many questions as ...

I'm sad to see you go! Thanks for all your work.

I've had less time for moderating than usual lately but I think I'll be able to step it up a bit again. The monthly stats tells me that there has been 120 flags with an average handling time of 3 hours and 38 minutes. I would say that that's acceptable but not great. As far as I know all of us have day jobs (and probably other interests too) so it is ...
