As you may know, we recently announced
that we were looking to close down the Ethereum Forums.
This decision lead to a great deal of discourse within the community, and it was made clear to us that there exists a vibrant technical group who are very keen to continue using the Ethereum forums as they are, mostly for troubleshooting and technical assistance/discussion around mining.
We were hoping to help consolidate the useful mining information within the Ethereum Stack Exchange so that it can continue to grow to be a one stop solution for Ethereum tech troubleshooting (we’re working very hard to help people access Ethereum documentation). However, we understand that the Stack Exchange is not quite as permissive of discussion as the forums are. It's also not very good for posting pictures of your rigs
With that in mind, we've decided that it is best to keep the Ethereum Forums open for use.
We’d also like to announce a call for community moderators who are interested in helping us maintain this corner of the Ethereum ecosystem!
This process will likely take a few weeks, and ideally we’d like to assemble a positive, efficient and polite team of upstanding individuals from various places around the world (the more timezones the better!).
If squashing spam, telling off trolls and being neighbourly to noobs is something you’d like to help us with, please leave the following information in a comment below:
- Timezone/geographical location
- Relevant experience
- Previous examples of you helping the Ethereum community (links)
Finally, please feel free to nominate others who you feel would be well suited, and if you don’t want to publish your information publicly, feel free to send me a PM.
