I want to start by thanking the #sportstalk community for embracing the Referee system. I am ecstatic with the community members who have stepped up and feel they will be valuable assets for the ecosystem. With over two weeks left to go we already have a solid 5 candidates who've stepped up to support our community. I can't wait to see what the next two weeks bring.
I would also like to announce that I do not plan to run for referee at this time. I'd like to open these spots to others in hopes of building a stronger decentralized team focused on curating and moderating our great community. I find there are already a number of strong candidates with even more planning to come online soon.
I want to personally thank @rokyupjung and @pele23 for their support since the Referee announcement. Your support made me strongly consider joining the mix. That being said I encourage you to review the announcements from @referee1, @referee4, @referee10, @referee3, @referee6 and @referee9. All 5 of these excellent options have verified their candidacy and I feel would be wonderful partners for our community.
