We recently posted some call-outs for new members of our Community Council. As a result, we’re introducing five members to the group:
They join our other Council members:
What does the Community Council do?
The Community Council performs three main roles:
- Hiding comments that breach community standards from public view, for review by me
- Modelling and encouraging great discussions (including reminding people about our standards and nudging people towards them)
- Identifying issues in the community, like topics that attract a lot of problematic comments or technical issues, and discussing ways to address those issues.
The Council reports to me and moderates comments with guidance from me. They moderate according to our Community Standards. Members who do not comply with this could face removal from the Community Council.
Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in joining the Community Council. We’ll let you know next time we look to add new members. Until then, please join us in welcoming our new members.
