Noticed recently that I've got "Editor" status on BioStar.
Would be happy to use this to help the Administrators/the site in general, and was wondering if there's somewhere a bit more information on what "Editors" can do, and ways in which we can most usefully contribute to the site, than is given in the FAQ pages.
And/or, other Editors - what kinds of moderation activity do you find yourselves doing, what do you feel are useful ways for you, and other Editors, help support the community?
I think I'm going to close that question :-)
Ah... the pleasure of guessing on t'interweb whether people are making jokes or not :)
I guess if you already deleted the question, then I wouldn't be able to reciprocate by in addition deleting your comment...?! ;)
I was joking :-)
The only editing I have ever done is to edit posts to make them more readable by fixing formatting of links and putting code into code blocks where the original poster did not. I have rarely edited the content of a post.
Plenty of good answers already; I won't add a new one. Improving tags, making titles more informative, fixing typos and formatting code properly are all very useful. Especially the last...I think we need an FAQ entry about how to format.
Another call to action is that when you see job ad make sure that the title contains the location of the job. That really helps in orienting people.
Thanks for editing the title, Istvan
