Is there a list of who the staff are on this site, what their reponsibilities are, please?

Furthermore, how may members go about contacting them privately?

There has been a Contact link added to the footer for the website where you can find all of the staff as well as the moderator list.  You may not always be able to contact the editorial staff directly, but you will always be able to reach me via private conversation and I can get in touch with specific staff if needed.

Also, there are now Docents on the site, who are here as greeters and helpers for new members.  There is not a list for them yet, but you will notice them by the title under their names.

I hope this helps your concerns, Dave.  Let me know if you need anything else.

The simplest way to contact anyone on the site is to go to the "people" section and click on the listing for each member. The members of our staff are all there -- Steve Doherty, Brian Riley, Bob Bahr, Allison Malafronte, and David Pyle. You can also respond to the blogs that we post from time to time.

Thanks, Steve

Thank you  - at least this serves as a list for members - however:

1. Until you read the individual profiles, there is nothing that flags up those members as staff. They are difficult enough to find within the current membership, but, unless you are already "in the know", will become virtually impossible as the site grows.

2. Having found said staff members, I've just discovered you can only have a "conversation" with members who have already accepted a request for "friendship".

3. "admin" is stated on its profile as being a joint account, and not checked every day.

4. responding to blogs risks correspondance (which may be intended to be confidential) being made public; and making "comments" certainly seems to do so.

With respect, unless I've misunderstood, I believe this needs some further thought as to how it could be better set up, both technically and organisationally.
