Reasons you should run for declass:

- You get to give back to your community in a way that promotes transparent and fair practices.

- You get to read interesting situations from years back that don't affect your life right now.

- You get to be a part of a supportive team.

- You feel a sense of reward for completing tasks that have a start and an end.

- You develop or improve a number of skills pertaining to attention to detail, technical understanding, time management, and communication.

What happens if nobody shows interest in the position before the end of the nominations?

I've been wondering the same myself. I can't recall it happening before.

 

I guess it would be held over to the next time there are elections

Is there a trial period for new members of the team to learn how to do the job?

I think it has happened before, and there'd be another election later on then.

Not quite a trial period, but there is training for new members as they're learning the ropes. New members are given instructions on how to do the job and then there is the ability to message other DT members if they want more clarification or have questions that aren't covered.

I have to make a final decision now before the nomination period officially ends. I thought it through, and am interested, but decided I should sit this one out this time, to focus on my current role as much as I can.
