Well we've been around more than a week and are now open to the public. Stack Exchange likes to appoint pro-tem moderators at about the two week mark so it's high time to nominate some contributors for those positions.
Please nominate one user per answer so that we can vote up/down each person individually.
Include a brief reason why you're nominating them.
Feel free to nominate yourself, Stack Exchange apparently specifically encourages this.
Don't be shy to vote. Vote up people you think ask good questions, submit good answers, do other kinds of constructive work on the site. Vote down people you think are not so appropriate.
According to this page, these points must be included in the question.
How Moderators are Appointed Pro Tem
- Have a reasonably high reputation score to indicate active, consistent participation.
- Show an interest in their meta’s community-building activities.
- Lead by example, showing patience and respect for their fellow community members in everything they write.
- Exhibit those intangible traits discussed in A Theory of Moderation.
Bonus points for:
- Members with participation in both meta and the parent site (i.e. interest in both community building and expertise in the field).
- Area 51 participation, social network referrals, or blogging about the site.
- Members who have already shown an interest or ability to promote their community.
