We recently printed some business cards for our Stack Exchange employees and they turned out great.

It got us thinking: our sites' moderators have been working hard to keep our sites high quality for the past few years. They may not be employees, per se, but great community moderators are why our communities are safe, sane, and worth visiting in the first place..

If you're a Superuser moderator, would you be interested in having your own Superuser contact card? Would you find it useful?

I can see them being handy to pass out during your local tech meetups or conferences.

Super User moderator card

Of course Twitter ID/phone# are optional. It can be Skype, AIM, URL etc.

    Can't I have some that say "He's just a plain Super User, but who cares, these cards are awesome" ): – Pylsa Jun 13 '11 at 13:48

This is actually something that I've been wanting for some time... I would find it useful and would like to have something like that to pass out to other technology and computer enthusiasts that I meet.

Allow the card to be customizable, at least to some degree...

I would suggest changing the A (Answer) line to He is a ♦ moderator on Super User - for two reasons (changing to He to keep the grammar correct). First, one could argue that 10K+ users are "Community Moderators" since they have access to some moderator tools, but are not ♦ mods. So I would propose using a diamond.

Second, the name of the site is Super User, not necessarily SuperUser.com, and the .com part is already listed on the front of the card...

Just some suggestions...Overall, the design is awesome!

  • thanks for the feedback! The cards will be highly customizable (per individual person, card). – Jin Jun 9 '11 at 23:25

    Studiohack I like most of your suggestions, but think using a diamond is confusing to people who aren't familiar with the stack exchange paradigm. The phrase "community moderator" is much more self-explanatory than "what's that diamond thing mean? do you have spades and hearts moderators too or something?" – nhinkle Jun 10 '11 at 0:58

Looks great, and it would be great to have something to hand out to advertise the site and ourselves. It might be nice if there were a very brief blurb about what Super User is - say:

He is a Community Moderator on Super User, an online Questions and Answers site for computer software and hardware

    OK so I fail at reading - it says that on the front of the card. Derp. Maybe instead there could be some tiny blurb about stack exchange or something? – nhinkle Jun 10 '11 at 5:24

OK, moderators have officially been mailed the form to obtain the cards. Stay tuned!
