Hello @angys and thanks for the request.

Is it possible you edit the message answering the rest of the sections so it can be processed?


Thanks for the edit.

While we wait for the proposed moderators to comment here they are OK with the role, it would be great if you could also add on the initial message a brief description on why each moderator was proposed. This is asked as part of the process to provide transparency and allow a community conversation to happen here.

Thanks again!


I would like to share here that a criteria for selecting new moderators has been recently approved:

There are just three changes that affect the current request:

  • Please review that all proposed mods fulfill the basic requirements to be a moderator.
  • At least 5 days of community discussion need to take place once all the proposed mods have commented accepting here.
  • A poll voting will be created after this discussion to allow the community to validate the final list.

Please, let me know if you have additional questions.


Hi. I’ll be happy to lend a hand again, moderating the soon-to-be Malaysia category sub-forum (over this Discourse platform). For the record, I have volunteered myself to moderate the soon-defunct (FluxBB-based) forum and had appointed user:kucai.
