Last year StackExchange became a member of TUG. With that come eight individual memberships, that were given out to some members of the community. The time has come to select our representatives for 2013.
Following the model from last year, I'd like to ask people to put themselves forward. 'Highly-active' TeX-sx members, on the main site and meta, are particularly encouraged to consider 'standing'. There are no restrictions on standing: in particular, the existing 'representatives' are very welcome to put their names forward to continue. [Note: I've called the people we put forward 'representatives', but that's mainly because I can't think of a better term. Nominees should not feel the need to represent TeX-sx other than being members of the site and therefore interested in TeX in some way!]
The model for answers follows the pattern from last year. Each person who wishes to be considered should post an answer, where they can (if they wish) say what makes them a good choice. Everyone should take a look at these answers and vote for deserving candidates: remember there are eight places available!
Based on the time-frame from StackExchange, we have about a week to fill up the slots. I'll therefore close the question late on 2012-12-08 (next Saturday), so we (mods) can send the names along in time. In the event of a tie in number of votes, the mod team will decide which of the tied members are put forward to StackExchange.
Voting closed with the following result: there were nine names put forward, the top eight by votes were:
- Paulo Cereda
- Stefan Kottwitz
- Alan Munn
- Martin Scharrer
These names will be passed to the StackExchange staff to be forwarded to TUG.
