New moderators and newsletter editors!
  • Hi all,
     
    As you know, over the past few weeks we invited for expression of interest from current members who wanted to become moderators. It was heartening to see so many people prepared to dedicate so much effort to gyaan.in. It's time to end the suspense - the moderators have voted and after a period of voting, we agree that the following people should be made moderators...
     
    (Vampire style by Amrit George)
     
    * Arunavha Chanda
    * Vidit Bhargava
    * Abhaas Mohan
    * Utkarsha Bhardwaj
     
    ...and the following people as newsletter editors
     
    * Parth Singh
    * Dhananjay Sahay
    * Mayank Vachher
     
    Congratulations folks! The current moderator team extends a warm welcome them and I'm sure the rest of the gyaan.in community will join us in doing the same. The current moderator will be there to guide you in getting up to speed. The moderators themselves of course can work on the newsletter team too, if they want.
     
    Let me take this opportunity to say something to those who didn't make it - we have great respect for the enthusiasm that you've shown and actually having the courage to stand up and run for a position and run for a position. When we were voting, the things we were looking for the amount of time each candidate had devoted to gyaan.in consistently, but also the past achievements and the experience each candidate had. So please don't be disheartened if you didn't get selected now, because we just want you to gain more experience and be even more successful while enjoying quizzing.
     

    One of our members made a comment a few days ago about gyaan.in stagnating these days. Far from it! From the beginning of this year till now, we have seen a steady and consistent growth in gyaan.in's traffic, in no small measure because of extensive and rich collection of knowledge about quizzing and quiz competitions that the gyaan.in community has contributed.
     
    If you ever feel that you don't find enough new content on the site, then you must ask yourself the question as to why you personally are not contributing to the mix. We have hundreds of members right now, and gyaan.in is what it is because of everyone's efforts - not because of any single person or group of people. gyaan.in is what you make it to be, so make it good.
     
    My advice to the new moderators will be to always try to set an example for others to follow. Ever action you take and every word you say means something unique now, so think about everything twice before doing or saying it. I'm sure you're all responsible people. Make proactive efforts to find information about upcoming events, and make proactive efforts to create content, upload archives, et al - because you are some of the community's most experienced and dedicated members.
     
    Once again, commiserations to those who didn't make it and I hope you interpret this as something you can improve yourself from.
     
    I wish the new moderators all the best with your endeavours!
