We were working so hard and finally the day has come! I would like to thank the Stack Exchange team for giving us the chance to field-test the site with a private and public beta, Roman Mandeleil for proposing Ethereum at Area51, Hudson Jameson & Joris Bontje & eth for moderating the site, and all the users contributing questions, answers, tags, ...

In addition to 5chdn's post, thank you to 5chdn!! It's safe to say that without 5chdn's leadership and drive, site graduation would not have come at this time and so quickly. Been a privilege and pleasure working with 5chdn (sometimes we don't agree 100% but that is much much less than all the other collaboration done). Since moderator elections are self-...

Attribute If you're going to directly copy (and you're not the original author) then make sure you use the Markdown quote syntax (precede lines of quoted text with a >) and link to the original post. Plagiarism (or perceived plagiarism) is seriously frowned upon in a Stack Exchange site. Something like this should work: This question was asked on ...

Agreed! It's also worth noting that many sites seem to end up with a sort of "default voting level" which gets set very early on in the beta, later influencing people's conception of whether a question or answer "deserves more votes". It is unequivocally the case that a higher "default voting level" is better! Lets set our base level nice and high so that ...

They have been very helpful in making sure every question gets answered and is edited to be as clear as possible and has helped organize the tags. Relevant moderation badges (12): Civic Duty, Tag Editor, Vox Populi, Citizen Patrol, Suffrage, Commentator, ...

profile for Hudson Jameson on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/7191282.png Well, since self-nomination is "encouraged", I'll nominate myself :P I am a DApp developer, Ethereum enthusiast, and volunteer much of my time coordinating Ethereum volunteer activities and helping others learn ...

IMO there are many new users with no previous experience with SE sites. Ethereum community is growing fast and unpredictable sometimes, meaning that many new users just don't know what they are looking for or how to behave. It is understandable, this field of knowledge is new and it will take time for more people to get used to this technology and to share ...

network profile flair http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/2739006.png I would like to nominate Tjaden Hess. He is a DApp developer and Ethereum enthusiast, shows decent activity and with the site-wide highest answer rate everyone can still learn from him. Relevant moderation badges (10): Enlightened, Vox Populi, Citizen Patrol, Suffrage, Commentator, ...

What @eth said. In general the reward model of stack exchange is pretty straight forward: Good and helpful content get's upvoted. Upvotes generate reputation and reputation enables users privileges. And privileges are important because this site is run by you, the community. High reputation enables you access to moderator tools, protecting questions, ...

This post might be off-topic as I am not a candidate, but I would like to answer the last question publicly as some members of the community approached me about running for moderator. In what way do you feel that being a moderator will make you more effective as opposed to simply reaching 10k or 20k rep? That's exactly what I will do: reaching 20k ...

No, generally speaking, this should be off topic. Stack Exchange was created for collaborative knowledge sharing, and the focus of this site is the subject of Ethereum. Stack Exchange works really well for technical support, as long as we're not trying to outsource a project's entire customer support channel to Stack Exchange. These "insider baseball" ...

My first idea would be a closer service integration on /r/ethereum subreddit. There is a user base of around 10k subscribers and 100 average users online. Proposal It could be designed like follows: Coordinate with subreddit moderators whether such an integration would be welcome on /r/ethereum. Setup some RSS-Reddit-Feed-Bot which automatically ...

It's great to welcome so many new users to this forum. Many new users don't realize that voting activity is an important metric for this site as a whole and for the experts who volunteer their time and knowledge to answer questions. Don't be shy. Vote early, vote often! Hope it helps.


10

My vote is that they are on-topic, as long as the question still relates to the platform in some way (i.e. not if it is user support for passing a level in a game that just so happens to use ethereum-based tokens or something way off track like that).

network profile flair http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/7676417.png I would like to nominate eth who has the highest reputation gained in our community and helped with the most edits a single users ever did to ensure quality standards throughout our site. Relevant moderation badges (9): Tag Editor, Citizen Patrol, Commentator, Organizer, Quorum, Beta, ...

network profile flair http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/388756.png I would like to nominate Jeff Coleman. He's a full time blockchain consultant active in the space since 2010, and an eager follower of Ethereum for the last two years. Edit by Jeff Coleman: I very much appreciate the nomination, but unfortunately don't have the time available required ...

The titles on your front page define your site, so a title should always, always best describe what the question is actually about without having to open the thread. If it doesn't, you should edit it; always. It's what helps people with those problems find your site through search. But someone with a question may not always know the right terminology to ...

In my opinion we shouldn't allow posting of addresses in answers; it seems that people could post a tipping address on their profile if they desire and could get tips that way.

Hip Hip Hoora :D, Congratulations. the best news i've got today ( as the crypto market crashed ^^). with such great team the ethereum.stackexchange deserves to be promoted(a high answering rate and active meta). As @eth said 5chdn has played a key role in this promotion, thanks 5chdn and thanks everyone else who made this happen.

So far so good. So, it shouldn't be an issue till now. As this is still in the infant stage, having a very open policy is very important. Let's gradually narrow the scope down on specific questions and topics once the conflicts(or conflicting posts/questions) start popping up on the site! So, let's be open to all the questions about DPP's now. It's very ...

This is an English-language site so questions must be posted in English. If non-English questions are posted, leave a thoughtful comment and close it as unclear what you are asking.

I consider all proposals on topic as soon as there's a link with Ethereum. Ethereum Core Infrastructure: on of course, otherwise nothing could be on topic Stand-alone Ethereum Forks: on until questions are related to it's Ethereum legacy and not to specific aspects of the fork Projects that implement the EVM: on, this is OUR EVM and we care for it even if ...

I've been monitoring this beta's site activity on Area51 Stack Exchange dashboard and Stack Exchange sites overview very closely. From what I can tell, the main statistics I've been looking at is the questions per day indicator and if you only look at this rate (currently around 14 questions asked per day), Ethereum Stack Exchange is the most active beta ...

Suggestions: From Zero to productive in Dapp development In any programming space it always seems to take ages to set up a realistic dev enviroment (beyond hello world) and get to minimal starter application which can be extended and or provision a dev team with what they need to work. Idea would be an article or series which gets newbies up to speed. ...

I endorse your appeal, Recently I've noticed there is a raise of the new posts posted by people who are new to stackexchange. These people are not certainly aware of this forum's rules, and they need assistance and help (they generally can't upvote or comment everywhere). On my side the review section is the first place i check. With a limitation of ...

Let me be the first to thank everyone for participating in our first round of elections, and especially congratulations to Badr, Tjaden and eth for accepting this lifetime responsibility to look after Ethereum Stack Exchange! Feel free to ping me on chat anytime you like if you need any 4th opinion :-)

I think this is an obvious application of the "Too Broad" closing reason. It's just that. I mean, even giving a tutorial is beyond the scope of an SE site.

Comments are not the place for extended discussion. It is not recommended to propagate an increasingly off-question comment trail. It is within the power of moderators to move the whole comment trail to chat. That way the discussion can continue freely. If there have been 20 or so comments in a short time the system will automatically raise a flag to the ...

The idea of Stackexcange network sites is to generate and provide content better than any other site out there. It's totally legit to ask quetions which are google-able. In future, the challenge is to create outstanding questions and answers. The result will be that google mainly yields results from the Ethereum SE site. And if that happens, questions can ...

You can do it in the following way: gnu-linux. As spaces are taken as delimiters for tag creation, gnu linux would be parsed as two different tags. So, include a hyphen between the words, and you'll be all good!
