You can help KernelTrap continue to grow by joining our volunteer moderation team. KernelTrap moderators are responsible for monitoring the site's content, helping to properly rate the usefulness of new comments and ensuring that new stories end up in the appropriate area of the site. They're also encouraged to submit new content at least once a week.
As a member of the KernelTrap moderation team, you will join the behind-the scenes mailing list on which site-related topics are discussed. On this list you will get previews of new interviews and feature articles before they're publicly posted, and be able to help guide the direction KernelTrap is taking. If this sounds interesting to you, read on for more information.
KernelTrap Moderation Team Requirements:
Interest in Kernel Development - The KernelTrap website is a community dedicated to the discussion of free and open source kernels, therefore it is important that this topic is interesting to you. You will find that the more you participate in the moderation of this site, the more you will learn.
Ability to Read and Write English Clearly - At this time, all stories on this site are written in the English language, therefore to join the KernelTrap moderation team you must be able to both read and write English at an acceptible level. (At a future date we hope to provide content in multiple languages)
Actively Monitoring Development Of One Or More Kernels - KernelTrap currently focuses primarily on Linux development, however there are many other interesting kernel development projects out there. When you join the KernelTrap moderation team, you'll get to specify the kernel projects that you are most interested in. We encourage new team members to monitor the development of kernels not currently tracked by other moderators.
Time to Post One Weekly News Story - One of the duties of a moderator is to submit news to the KernelTrap web pages. There's no upper limit to how much news you can submit, but we encourage you to submit a minimum of one story a week when possible.
After reading through the above list, if you're still interested and meet the above requirements, please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest. In your email please tell me a little about yourself, why you wish to join the KernelTrap volunteer moderation team, and what kernels you're interested in.
