The project coordinators are responsible for maintaining the procedural and administrative aspects of the project. They are the designated points of contact for procedural issues and are responsible for ensuring that the project as a whole is properly informed of them.
The coordinators manage the proposal and creation of new task forces, ensure that project announcements and task lists are kept up-to-date, initiate the drafting of guidelines needed by the project, organize the category system, oversee the recruitment of new members—including the use of project notices and other advertising methods, create and maintain collaborative projects, maintain the project page and guidelines in a clean and easy-to-use state, monitor technical policies and ensure that project templates satisfy them, and assist in organizing and promoting Backlog Elimination Drives and Blitzes.
They are also expected to generally assist project members with any questions or concerns.
The coordinator positions do not entail any executive power.
Lead Coordinator (xx open position): will have overall responsibility for procedural and administrative matters within the project.
Assistant Coordinator (xx open positions): will assist the Lead Coordinator by focusing on specific areas within the project that require special attention. The selection of these areas will be based on needs and interest among the coordinators.
The election process will run for two weeks, from June 15, 00:01 UTC, until June 28, 23:59 UTC.
Members of the project may nominate themselves for either position by creating a new section under Nominations and copying the sample form below. Nominees who are only interested in one position should indicate this when adding their names. Candidates do not need to make extensive statements if they do not wish to do so.
The elections will be conducted using simple approval voting. Any member of the project may support a nominee for either position. If the nominee is running for both positions and you wish to support her or him for only one, please indicate this as part of your vote.
Project members and interested outside parties are encouraged to ask questions of the nominees and to make general comments.
I am willing to continue as the lead coordinator. I welcome questions and comments. I make no campaign promises and will set no public goals except to keep the GOCE blitzes and drives running smoothly. That way, I'll be sure to exceed expectations. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:54, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
I've been helping maintain the Requests page, updating the Ombox etc, and I'm slowly learning how the drives and blitzes work. I've also added three Guild copy-editing templates. I'm a regular copy-editor on the Requests page. I'm happy to continue my current role for another six months; during this time I'm hoping to clarify and clean-up some of the Guild's pages, especially instructions for drives and blitzes because I think it's important that our pages are clear and succinct.

Since no one else has come forward, I'm happy to help out for another term. Although (like everyone else) I prefer copyediting to administrative work, I know that someone has to wash the dishes (or give out the barnstars :-)). I've been committed to the GOCE for about 31⁄2 years now, with a current interest in aiding the promotion of GANs and FACs.
Support Thank you for washing the dishes (only kidding!) all the superb copy editing you've been doing as well as the administrative work. --Stfg (talk) 00:27, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Support, and thank you for staying on while also wearing the admin hat. —Torchiesttalkedits 01:14, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Support. Thanks for the coordinator work. It's nice to have a team of people to start and wrap up drives. It can be tedious to do it all by yourself, and happily, I almost never have to. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:51, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
