I would like to serve as a general moderator!


Hi all,

I would also like to submit my candidacy to become a general moderator for the Forum.

I find this forum very useful and would like to help make it more welcoming for all.

As the Movement Strategy and Governance facilitator for the Sub-Saharan Africa region, my passion to support communities, especially in my region, to participate in the implementation of the Movement Strategy keeps growing. And to be able to better support my community, I need to be well informed about the Movement Strategy and the various initiatives being implemented. With this forum, I am able to easily follow the discussions around the various initiatives. With the automatic translation feature, I am able to read and learn from discussions happening in other languages and regions, and this is awesome!

As a co-lead for the working group that is managing the activities and outreach work around the Forum, I believe having the moderator rights will give me the needed access to enable me to be more useful to the existing users and potential users.

I agree to follow Universal Code of Conduct as a moderator in this forum.
And I also agree to act in coordination with the other moderators. Together, we’ll make this place more inclusive and more welcoming!

Thanks for giving my submission the needed attention.

سؤال أليس من الأفضل التدرج في طلب الصلاحيات

Hi @Nehaoua, I am not sure I understand your question. Could you please explain further what you mean?

I thought one’s ability to apply for either a category moderator or a general moderator depends on the individual’s availability.

So far, we only have 2 category moderators for one category and 1 general moderator. Instead of choosing to be a moderator for just 1 category, I applied to become a general moderator so I can help to clean and monitor more categories.


اتمنى لك كل التوفيق وشكرا لتطوعك واهتمامك تحياتي
