We’ve heard from our users that the inability to say “thank you” is frustrating—especially for new users who don’t have enough reputation to upvote or comment. Even when users gain these privileges, they still want to say “thanks.”

But who is a member of the Community? Why is the Community important? The answer to this will probably depend on who you ask.

Podcast 222: Learning From our Moderators

This podcast is meant to reach the Stack community, so we thought it would be great to have some of the moderators who help keep our communities running come on the show and chat about what they do and what they are seeing.

Stack Gives Back 2019

Each year, Stack Exchange donates $100 on behalf of each of our volunteer moderators. This is a long-held tradition that began in 2009, and we’re excited to continue it today. We’re pleased to announce that the donations have been made and the funds are at work helping these really awesome causes.
