Do You Want to Help Create a Good Commenter Community on io9?

Illustration for article titled Do You Want to Help Create a Good Commenter Community on io9?

We're looking for people who would like to help make the comments on io9 posts more useful. You can do that by volunteering to help bring comments out of the "pending" zone and into the light.

Here's how it works. You post in comments below about why you'd like to help (just a sentence or two is fine). If your reasoning is sound, we'll magically make you one of the commenters who is "followed" by io9. Followed commenters can pull comments out the "pending" section by starring or replying to them. That means you can help shape the conversation, and make sure more people are able to participate.

Want to volunteer? Just tell us why in comments and join this follow party!

I love lively, informed discussion that's driven by reason, enthusiasm, and a friendly spirit, rather than by ignorance and the blind rage-filled shouting of people who like to blow off steam. And I know such discussion when I see it, and I'd really like to help improve the io9 community in this regard. I've been a Grey, and I know how frustrating it is to be a reasonable commenter who's rarely seen or heard from. I'd like to pay forward to other like-minded folks.
