Due to personal reasons, I'm going to be relinquishing all of my formal roles with MEPIS. I'd really like to see if I can arrange for some of the roles I was looking after to be filled please.
I guess this ties in with my governance thread. We've had a lot of people over the last 3-4 years talk about helping - here's your chance!
- First up - we'll definitely need another ML forum admin. The job involves becoming familiar with the forum software (I learnt enough to do the basics with zero help within two weeks - so it's not difficult), and my role was mainly around maintenance and stopping the spammers. I can help teach the basics to whoever steps up to the role. For me - it was typically involving about 2-3 hours per day (spread throughout the day in short bursts). Depending on the individual - this could be cut back. At the moment you'd be working with Carl and Karen. You need no prior experience - but you do need a willingness to apply yourself, and a level head (non-explosive nature helps with moderation )
- Next - I'd like to have somebody step up and assist with learning packaging and possibly maintaining. Tim, Stevo and Scott shouldn't have to do this by themselves. The work is surprisingly easy to learn and is very rewarding. You just need patience, and ability to follow a formula. The other guys are great teachers. Tim and Steve really taught me a lot.
- Comms with Warren is hopefully being organised.
- Please reread my Governance thread. It could really help this Community and IMHO is the logical step forward. I leave it in your hands to implement it ....
Lastly - I'd like to thank you for taking me under your wing and teaching me so much over the last 4-5 years. I'd encourage you to get involved in your community - it is very rewarding.
