Who is Brett White?

  • Is he an employee of Stack Exchange?
  • Does that tiny psi/fork/trident in his username mean he's part of CHAOS?
  • Is he going through highly viewed questions and editing their titles into (hopefully) easily searchable and readable complete sentences?
  • Does he have to have sideburns?

The answer to all of those questions...is yes. Hello! Don't be alarmed by the potentially large amount of title edits I'll be doing over the next few days while I have temporary moderator powers. And please change/undo my edits if you notice that an old title was better or that my edit mangles or leaves out some key information. I trust your judgment on these matters!

Thanks, and I am sure we will be "seeing" more of each other!

I've now seen a couple forky folks who mention "CHAOS" in all caps. What does that mean? Is that an acronym? Secret society? Are you literally just wreaking havoc? –  sjohnston Jul 27 '11 at 18:49
    
@sjohnston They're pretty much doing exactly what Brett says he's doing here, on other sites. –  Grace Note Jul 27 '11 at 18:54

@sjohnston: The forky folks are here to serve, clearly. –  mmyers Jul 27 '11 at 19:00
    
As I understand it (from the SE Podcast) the CHAOS team is about community outreach and encouraging development. –  tzenes Jul 27 '11 at 20:12

This should really be broken up into a question and answer. Someone from CHAOS get onto this. –  Resorath Jul 27 '11 at 20:22
    
The forky folks aren't really folks at all, are they. ARE THEY? dons tin-foil hat –  user56 Jul 27 '11 at 21:22

Ahh, I was wondering who you were. Great work on the question cleanup! –  Kevin Y Jul 29 '11 at 1:53
    
You don't seem to be a moderator anymore, is that intended? –  jmfsg Aug 8 '11 at 13:57
    
Yes, our mod privileges were only intended to last for a brief time. –  Brett White Aug 8 '11 at 13:58

Here is a post about CHAOS, direct from Joel himself. It has a lot of info about what our job is, as well as a picture of us. I am the one that looks like me, just without my glasses.
