The opensource.com team is happy to announce the addition of four new community moderators to our team. You've probably read some of their articles on the site. And because they are so passionate about doing things the open source way and sharing their stories, we've upgraded their open source status.

With the addition of these outstanding opensource.com community members, we are officially launching our community moderator program. This program will identify key opensource.com contributors and advocates and provide them with a framework for how they can contribute more intensly to our community. They will also play an advisory role on our team concerning future decisions about the site and our community.

Twice a year we will invite new moderators to the team by monitoring contributors who have reached Rock Star status or who are approaching 100 points on the site. After a contributor has agreed to becoming an moderator, they recieve a welcome kit providing them with tips and resources to be successful in this role. New moderators also receive a robust SWAG kit for their commitment.
