My good friend @Patriot has enlisted me to help serve all of you in this outstanding community as a dedicated facilitator! My purpose is not to take one side or the other, but to help keep conversations on track. I will also be helping to monitor posts that are flagged by community members. Lastly, I’ll provide system tutorials to help all of you use the tools provided here more effectively. I plan on keeping all of my activities aligned to the vision of not using moderation to silence discussion. There is a big difference between facilitation and moderation. @Patriot posted a really great topic that is pinned globally and I hope that all of you can find the time to read it.
Before volunteering here, I have facilitated and moderated community forums on reddit, disqus, and on the new discord platform - I have also done this professionally within corporate communities of practice.
I’m an Army and Air Force veteran, dad, husband, and a really bad fisherman.
