The initiative on meta
got a great response. It quickly became the highest voted question on meta. This fact and the well thought out concept convinced Stack Exchange to join TUG:
Now it's up to us to choose further eight individual members! Here we already talked about that:
According to answers and votes, moderators and deserving TeX.SX members seen by reputation could be these members. I think, a self-nomination list here on meta could be a good way though, since it shows really interested members who aren't already TUG members. I know some of high reputation users and moderators are. Well, it may give a very similar result!
So I ask: who would like to become a member of the TUG?
I especially encourage
- former nominees for the moderator job
- very active users on meta
- users who earned high reputation because of their contributions
to step forward. Perhaps you would tell us, if you would like to join, why, and what are your ideas regarding the future of this cooperation?
(Btw. @all: posting ideas and comments to the announcement on the blog would be great too.)
It would be great if you all vote for deserving candidates. Let's take about a week for that. The final decision is up to Stack Exchange, who made this happen.
Edit: List completed
We now have the eight members we are allowed as 'representatives' of TeX.SX. TUG will be informed of the names pretty soon, and hopefully the new members will bring benefits to TUG and to TeX.SX.
