Hi Anirban, Mani, Soumyadip and all,

IMHO, we are the admin team and let us remain the admin team, till there 
is a meeting and other members decide that there is a need for Content
Management Team, and then let them pick. 

Being a website admin and the member of CMT is not the same thing, the admins
are technical person, and are responsible for maintaining and keeping the
website up and running. Whereas CMT people are generally from HR/marketing or
people with literary background/experience etc. and are responsible for
content or what articles to be published, etc. 

As a stop gap measure we are currently doing that, but at least I think I am
not upto the ask, and would like to see someone more experienced in my place. 

Also, I think having a 5/6 member team for that is not necessary, at least
now; the amount of user submitted articles are very few, and if we scare off
people by putting guidelines and bottlenecks, then I don't think we will see
any activity at all. So, let people publish what they want, and unless it is
obviously wrong/harmful, we should not obstruct (and I hardly see this ever

What we rather need is one or two people acting as editors, so that they can
fix things going as front page news/about us, FAQ etc. For example if someone
writes meeting minutes, then the editor can just quickly proof read it and
publish it.

Please let me know your views, whether you agree/disagree with the above.

Soumyadip, I would suggest you to reconsider your decision to resign from the
admin team, we will do well with your expertise.
