I am keeping up with the thread, but the original post is very outdated.
It is still called bitsquare.io and has broken image links.

Only Manfred can change this and I don't think he is able to give anyone access to it without giving them his personal Bitcointalk account that he used to create this topic, which would be a bad idea.

I think we should maybe create a new Bitcointalk account with "Bisq" in it's name and create a new self-moderated topic. Then give the credentials to whoever takes this role.

Agree. I can close then the thread and forward to the new one. Done that also with the very first thread (when Bisq was Bankrun ;-))

I can help with this. I used to have a Bitcointalk account (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=5507) but lost it, but I'll be happy to create a new one or use the Bisq one.

Sure. I have been successfully keeping up to date on that thread so far.
The problem is however that it is outdated and that it is a self-moderating thread, which means the thread creator (and only the thread creator) can moderate it. There is no way of adding other people as moderators on a self-moderation thread.

I think we should create a new account on bitcointalk called "Bisq" or something and create a new self-moderating thread with it. Then close the old thread and link to the new one.
Having a bitcointalk account specific to this role would be an easy way to transfer this role between people without losing the self-moderation ability.

@alexej996 I agree it's good to have accounts with "Bisq" in them. Rather than have an official Bisq account I would do Bisq_flix, Bisq_alex, etc.. so that each person can own their account, manage their own passwords, etc.

@flix1 Sure, but some account needs to be used to create a Bisq thread and that account will forever have self-moderating access to it. You can't add new people to be moderators of a thread so only way of transferring a Bitcointalk moderator role would be to give credentials to that account that created the Bisq thread.

@alexej996 You are right! There has to be a Bisq_network main forum account. I'll create it today.

OK, so that's the plan:

  1. We will create a main bisq_network forum user belonging to whoever holds this role (currently to be shared between @alexej996 and me. To be used only for opening threads and high level actions.

  2. Each contributor/moderator will also create their own forum user following the format bisq_name.

  3. We will open a new main thread for Bisq.network.

  4. @ManfredKarrer will lock the old thread
    (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=647457.0) and redirect to the new one.

@ManfredKarrer please lock the old thread to make sure replies go to new one.

My plan as moderator is simple:

  1. Check the thread every day and respond to user questions.
  2. Add new content every week (videos, tutorials, events, news, etc..) to keep the thread active.

My initial committment is for 6 months. So by December 2018 at the latest I should be replaced by someone else. I think that forum mod/user support is a good learning role where we can try out new contributors before moving them on to other stuff. Rotation should be baked in.

Nothing much beyond the plan.

  1. Check the thread every day and respond to user questions.
  2. Add new content every week (videos, tutorials, events, news, etc..) to keep the thread active.

Not much activity this month. Still sticking to the plan:

  1. Check the thread every day and respond to user questions.
  2. Add new content every week (videos, tutorials, events, news, etc..)

The thread has been viewed 664 times. Only a handful of responses. I try to keep it in the top page of the [Bitcoin Forum > Economy > Marketplace > Service Discussion > Exchanges] subforum without spamming or posting useless content.
