Important announcement from the head list representative: Joseph Lee is looking for his successor, effective from Version 21H2 onwards #AdminNotice
Dear Win10 Forum family,
Although cumulative updates happening tomorrow are important, as far as this forum cluster is concerned, the following is critically important:
In 2020, I sent out a call on this forum, asking folks to nominate people who could succeed me as head list representative. But things went south after that – I sent out a follow-up message, letting folks know that I’ll take care of this list until the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, knowing that stability and health are important… until last night.
On May 10, 2021 around midnight, I received an email from a university that partly stated:
Congratulations, we would like to offer you a spot in graduate school.
An offer I couldn’t refuse – as of now, I was admitted to study for a master of arts degree in communication studies at California State University, Los Angeles.
Because I know that graduate school is harder than undergraduate (college) courses, I had to think carefully about my role on Win10 Forum after fall 2021. Making matters more complicated is that I want to coach college students speech and debate while studying for my master’s, something that I know will take a lot of time away from Groups.IO admin panel.
Therefore I am looking for people who will succeed me as head list representative/forum owner, effective a week after Windows 10 Version 21H2 is released to the general public and formally taking my baton on the first monthly cumulative update date after that. To apply (or nominate someone), candidates must:
Ideal forum owner/head list representative:
Head list representative duties include:
IMPORTANT: anyone on moderation status or are banned from this forum cluster cannot become head list representative. In particular, as I noted a while ago, Maheen will NEVER become head list representative/owner of Win10 Forum for Screen Reader Users.
Nominations (including self-nominations) should be sent to the leadership team address (email@example.com) by May 31, 2021. I will then conduct interviews with candidates throughout June, with the successor announced no later than July 2021 cumulative update day (July 13, 2021). Between successor announcement and a week after Version 21H2 release will be designated as a transition period, with the term of my successor formally starting the first monthly cumulative update date following Version 21H2 release (for example, if 21H2 is released in late November, I will officially step down on December 14, 2021).
