  • They are involved in the writing and discussion of the policies, essays, and procedures that help shape the site.
  • They seek out and aid in projects that help categorize the wide variety of information currently available.
  • They advertise the site's existence when and where ever possible, to both highlight the resource we have all built and to bring in new Readers and Editors to the fold.

  • They guide and assist Readers and other Editors in resolving their problems with information (or direction to policies, essays, or procedures) or in answering their questions.
