Meta: notes on EA Forum moderation

post by Denise_Melchin · 2018-03-16T21:14:20.570Z · EA · GW · Legacy · 6 comments

The EA Forum moderators (currently Larissa Hesketh-Rowe, Denise Melchin, and Julia Wise) wanted to share some updates and clarifications on EA Forum moderation.

Unfortunately the Forum FAQ isn't editable right now (looking forward to having a shiny new EA Forum, with editable sidebar, before too long!) so we’re just adding this post for now.

- Firstly, Larissa will be rotating off soon, and so we would be interested in recruiting another moderator. Please contact us at if you're interested.

- Secondly, this space is intended for discussion of EA ideas. We believe announcements of a personal nature  are a better fit for more social spaces, such as to the EA Hangout Facebook group. Therefore posts of a personal nature will be removed from the EA Forum. 

If you have any questions about this please do reach out to us at

Hi, can you give an example or two of an "announcement of a personal nature". I cannot think I have seen any posts that would fall into that category at any point.
