Hello! My name is Bryan Denny and I am currently one of the Moderator Pro Tempores of Android Enthusiasts. I would like to be considered for nomination in the moderator election.
I was originally an active member on the first Android StackExchange 1.0 site, forceclose.com. When Android.SE opened up, I quickly created an account here (one of the first, if not the first) and participated on both sites until the StackExchange 1.0 sites were phased out. Needless to say, Android is a big passion of mine and I absolutely love helping others fix their problems.
And I have to admit, trying to read through some forums such as XDA can be a pain when the answer you need is on page 23 of a 80 page thread. So that's why I created some questions here (community wikis now) to hopefully help point some users in the right direction with some of the more "technical" details of Android (rooting/roms):
I'm also an Android developer so I get to see both perspectives as both a user and a developer. I've invested some time in answering Android specific questions over on StackOverflow (I even did this such that I could add a link to Android.SE in the Android tag wiki as I felt that was a relevant cause). I've also had some participation over at GameDev (mostly for Android too). You can also ocassionally see me on http://reddit.com/r/android, a site I check daily to stay on top of Android news. I also own a small plethora of Android devices that I'm pretty comfortable with (Droid1, NookColor, Xoom, G1).
I firmly believe that a community should be able to democratically moderate itself, which the StackExchange platform was perfectly designed for (question/answer scores, voting to close, flagging, etc.). It is those few and rare times that one such as myself need to step in and intervene with the odd exception (and it really has been a rare occasion in this fantastic community). It has been my job to take care of the issues you bring up on meta.Android.SE and through flags and I hope to continue to do so.
In the past year, we, together, have been able to successfully control our "question smells" (what is your favorite X?, is there an app that does Y?, dev questions, speculations, etc.), guide new users to the right place (whether helping them ask questions here or pointing them to the Android tag on StackOverflow), solve "tags" and their naming, synonyms, wikis, etc., and overall improve the quality of our questions and answers while discarding the bad. We still have some improvements to make (especially in growth, both overall and in our higher reputation users) but I feel that everyone working together can get us there.
And no matter what, I will still continue to help those in the Android community with questions that need to be answered!
