dont post a lot here, because sometimes my questions here which I put significant time into writing get deleted (seemingly unilaterally), from almost "day1".
the nomination window ended with 3 candidates volunteering within the last minute, within the last three hours, so it wasnt clear who would be in the election, and there is no primary phase as on other sites where there are more volunteers/competitors for nomination to narrow the choices. therefore was hoping somehow to "think outside the box" & broaden them.
hence I decided to add to k's post which is now completely hidden from the main meta list some of whom are elite members of this site in the TCS field & eg spend quite a bit of time writing blogs, books etcetera ... luminaries of the field! it was intended for the record & future reference & maybe to spark some discussion on the subject. kaveh quickly deleted it within minutes of posting it and then locked down that post, which is within his right as moderator to do. (alphabetical order here)
however, my question to this list of the senior/elite/prominent/high-profile members of the site is, what can we do to make it better, to make it so you are more likely to engage/participate, either in meta or on the main site? what is working, what is not working? are you not here just because you are too busy? is there anything that can be changed in this environment that would tend to draw you in?
this is my fantasy team of tcs.se participants. of course not looking for major engagements such as moderating [although that would be way cool and a natural fit for your awesome leadership skills already amply demonstrated], but even small intermittent contributions would be fabulous.
