    This is to clarify a few things that have been left unclear recently.

    • Q Who Runs the nForum?
    • A Me.
    • Q What is the nForum For?
    • A To support the nLab.
    • Q What’s the role of the nLab steering committee on the nForum?
    • A To advise me as to how best to achieve the nForum’s primary aim.

    Everything else stems from these points.

    As nForum discussions are not intended to be permanent resources and anything that should be permanent should be on the nlab, more details on this are on the nForum pages (click on “Help” up above). Those pages are still “in development”, but the core is there.

    (In the light of how previous discussion on these matters has gone, I ask that if anyone does have something that they want to say that they email me directly.)

    This seems wise. Having a small moderation team consisting of three people (Anton, Scott, and Ben) is enough for MO, which is substantially larger than the nForum, so it seems like having one moderator is probably for the best unless it becomes clear that more are needed.

    This seems wise.

    I suppose we are all very grateful that Harry Gindi approves of this.

    Notice also this bit of wisdom here:

    • Q What is the nForum For?
    • A To support the nLab.

    How is your preparation for your first nontrivial contribution to the nLab going? I seem to remember that back then you were announcing some contribution after some procrastination has gotten out of the way. But I have already forgotten what it was.

    There are... (intentionally vague) medical reasons why I haven't been able to post this month.
