Hey there!

The DEV Tag Moderator program gives trusted users the ability to help organise content across, making DEV usersโ€™ feeds more relevant and the site easier to navigate.

Tag mods work together with each other and DEV staff to ensure that content on the site is tagged appropriately, while also politely educating DEV users on how to follow tag guidelines.

  • Remove/add tags that they moderate from/to certain posts
  • Update their tag's sidebar (i.e. add a description, submission guideline, etc).
  • Update their tag's 'pretty name' and colours.
  • In addition, tag moderators are also considered community moderators and have additional privileges listed in the Community Moderation Guide.

If you're interested in becoming a community or tag moderator, please email!

Thanks for your quick response. I am a newbie on this platform and learning a lot from here. I would definitely try to moderate a few tags on Machine Learning after a few months when I have a better understanding of the subject.
