I woke up this morning to find that I am now an iNat curator. I have never applied to be a curator (although I have been considering it for some time). Is this normal?
Someone must have made you a curator, which is odd if they did not tell you. You can de-curate yourself.
That’s certainly odd, @afid, we’ll check and see who made you a curator and reach out to them.
Sounds good. If possible, I would like to keep curator (though I would be happy to apply officially). Although on a side note, the info on applying for curator (specifically what information is wanted in the e-mail application) is rather ambiguous…
@afid yes, we should make that more clear. I’m even thinking of creating some sort of online form for curator application. I would appreciate it if you could email us at email@example.com after having carefully read the Curator Guide and include your reason(s) for wanting to become a curator and an example or two of a taxonomic change you’d like to make that abide by the policies in the guide.
Sounds good! Thanks!
Great! I’ll look into restoring your curator status after we receive the email.
Sounds good, I may not write it for a few days because I’m super busy right now.
