The task of the content curators is to ensure that the website is a place where members and sympathizers can find material that is interesting and relevant. More concretely, the team's primary task is twofold, as outlined in the proposal for the team:
- To ensure that the website's home page gives an appropriately playful and lively impression and is regularly updated with fresh content.
- To start building up a repository of relevant content on various topics and issues.
Obviously, the team can only be successful if members participate in this task by bringing in material, but it should stimulate this and actively solicit contributions. If members want to participate in the team's task in other ways, they are also welcome to do so.
Keeping to the participatory spirit, it's mostly up to the team to decide how to fulfill their task. Activities could include things like: maintaining the home page, drafting newsletters, inviting members to write blog or news posts, keeping the forum organized, creating artwork, translating content, doing social media outreach or building a wiki.
For this mandated role there are 7 potential slots to fill: 5 primary and 2 reserve curators. The reserve curators are tasked with taking over from primary curators when circumstances require. All are selected for a term of one year.
Members who are willing to volunteer for this task are invited to announce their availability by posting a statement to that effect as a comment below. Please also add some information that may be helpful to the membership in making a selection, such as how you hope to fulfill the role. Candidates can also indicate that they are only available for the reserve role.
Two weeks after this call was posted, a vote will be held for selecting the primary and reserve roles.
