Forum Council

An update from the Forums Council for April 2014

The Forum Council gave an update on where we stand with regard to the new process for nominating forum members for moderator positions.

With only 2 self nominations and 4 nominations put forward by the council, the overall feeling was for polling to be abandoned this time around with the 6 current nominees appointed to the moderation team. Learning points to be appraised and the process revisited for next time around.

Full logs can be found here. http://ubottu.com/meetingology/logs/ubuntu-meeting/2014/ubuntu-meeting.2014-04-06-20.01.log.html

Congratulations to mc4man, caboose885, deadflowr, steeldriver, slickymaster and sudodus on their appointments. Smile :)
