    3. Are we gonna get answers to our questions? not always.

    generally, we do not answer the following questions:

    1. mods, mods, where are you mods

    2. why was my last post deleted

    3. which mod is on now

    4. how many mods are on now

    5. if I send you an email with contact information will you forward it to…

    6. how late are you staying on tonight

    7. information about other people on the boards – past or present.

    (other mods feel free to add other questions)

    ames- that’s been bugging me too. Sometimes it seems like a mod is not familiar with the topic and therefore deletes a few posts because when not in context, they sound too random, inappropriate etc. Many times I feel like explaining my post and why it is relevant to the topic. Or- explain to a mod that 3 weeks ago we discussed abc and here someone mentioned b, therefore I brought back a & c…

    so l’mahse, do the mods read through all posts?

    …and sometimes we delete a post even if it is on target due to inappropriate expressions or because it can lead to areas that are not appropriate.

    areivim: its like anonymous moderator wrote: …read by a Moderator

    doesnt seem like ALL mods go thru ALL posts so if another moderator is modding… you get into some trouble.

    (btw, thanks anonymous mod {72?!} for answering that question of mine.)

    (btw #2, are we aloud to correct your spelling errors? please?) yes, and sometimes we will even go back and put the correction in

    …and sometimes we delete a post even if it is on target due to inappropriate expressions or because it can lead to areas that are not appropriate. <<

    anonymous mod- I hope that was just a general comment…. it is a general comment, however, you may notice that sometimes we edit a post and remove inappropriate remarks and allow the rest of the comment to remain. the third option is to delete the comment and replace it with a general note as to why it was deleted

    PS- the way this mod is answering, sounds like 39 is back? If it’s 72- well, thanks for being with us on this day 😉

    Thanks mod!

    other mods feel free to ad other questions

    I believe the word is adD. Unless you’re trying to advertise something overthere…

    Sometimes posts get deleted when they were not meant to sound bad or inappropriate…maybe it’s the way the mod reads into the post. correct – because if we read it that way, others could also.

    oh you mean we can correct your spelling and you might even answer? cool – because you misspelled the word “add” in the third post here 😉

    it’s weird…but i don’t automatically believe someone who claims to be the original joseph.

    mods, do you have anything to say about this? no

    one more question dear mods. What are your hours (as in, all of you-not each of you). Is there 24/7 coverage? no, although we are multi-national, we do not have coverage in the in the pacific on a full time basis. (you do live all over, dont you? yes. I live here, another lives over there, a few live that-a-way, one someplace else, still another down there and one kinda migrates around from here to there (funny things are everywhere) with a blackberry) If not, where can I pick up a moderator application form? this was discussed on another thread

    you promised us answers to the kinds of questions that are being asked….

    mklal lav atta shomeiah hein!

    Ok, it varies by the day. We don’t have a set schedule of who is on when. We need time off to daven and to sleep. And the editor allows us an hour of fresh air outdoors each day, so sometimes all the mods may be off at the same time.

    #1048279

    Well, if that’s the truth, seems like there are enough moderators to cover anyways, no? Just trying to figure out why updates take so long sometimes. (yes i KNOW I can’t ask, but it just slipped!)

    And if there aren’t enough mods, refer back to post #12.

    btw, you still didn’t identify yourself.

    ask one more time and be banned! (just kidding). And btw, more than one mod has responded on this thread anonymously. The only response I gave prior to this was about the single hour of fresh air.

    hey mod, only one hour?

    When he’s in a good mood! :}

    wait a minute – you get an hour? I was told 45 minutes 🙁

    Wow, so I did get a good deal after all! Cool!

    and time for your crust of bread and ounce of water…

    *kapusta*

    no… but we are allowed to eat and drink while moderating – go back and read the thread that discussed the moderators handbook and acceptable beverages.

    oh right – water wasn’t on the list. only prune juice and bourbon.

    #1048286

    did someone mention bourbon? yes, read the previous post and refrain from asking silly questions.

    charlie, now i know you’re not a moderator. there’s no way you would last long enough sitting at home modding for more than thirty seconds without getting shikkur.

    #1048289

    hey anonymous mod,

    a few shots of bourbon will make you a lot calmer! Try it when the editor isn’t looking! ok… maybe… but I have to finish my (fermented) PLUM Juice first

    moish,

    VERY good point! I probably should have made sure to be sober when I went for that interview, maybe then I would have gotten the job. Oh well.

    I vote charlie should be given a second chance.

    charlie brown: I just realized what your name is. Hows snoopy doing? (Im not mixing up my cartoons am I?)

    this thread is designated to asking questions to the moderators. being as it has been established that charlie brown in not a moderator, I hereby strike the question and will not allow an answer

    why don’t the mods ever notify us when they are leaving?

    read the third post in this thread

    #1048293

    maybe all these posts are really 1 person and 1 mod, playing tricks on us? lets see if an anonymous mod makes a comment on mine-then we know that all the previous posters are not mods

    whether or not a comment is made in your post is not proof of anything (you could be part of the conspiracy).

    #1048294

    ahhh, so the anonymous mod is 72! Well, when you finish your fermented grapefruit juice go have some bourbon. am I, umm, I mean is 72 the only one to like PLUM juice

    And while you’re doing that, let me try to sneak in an off topic comment to aussie – snoopy is doing great and he thanks you for asking about him!

    ignore the last comment by charlie brown

    i just wanted to say hello to the anonymous mod, who’s workin so hard to entertain ya all in this thread! oh & i think i knew the answers to all your questions, direct them her folks!

    #1048297

    LOL, that brings up another on-topic question for all the mods – do any of you (other than 72) like fermented PLUM juice? yes, I like it also See 72, I finally got it – PLUM juice! congratulations Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? was this a question for the moderation panel, if not, I direct this question to be stricken from the records 🙂

    Thanks for lettin’ slip the handle, Double Nickel. I particularly found one response of yours humorous:

    no, although we are multi-national, we do not have coverage in the in the pacific on a full time basis.

    You sound soooo corporate! Do you have full-time coverage in areas other than the Pacific? perhaps I wasn’t aware that this was possible. it is

    do you have to mod a minimum amount, or can you just do it whenever you want? depends on your individual contract – some moderators are better negotiators than others or take a vacation from modding whenever? see the answer to the first part of your question

    why when you look at a member’s profile does it sometimes have their screen name at the top of the page & sometimes not, depending on the user? good question. btw… your screen name is missing from the top of the page

    why is it that some members profile only show 40 last posts, while other’s have a second page on it? luck of the draw

    mod, that doesn’t answer my question

    we don’t like the question

    multiple personalities… I vote the unidentified mod is the bugnot/bugyes character with a bunch of names. one personality speaking for the collective group of moderators

    are there any female mods? maybe

    how come some old member’s say like charles schawab, hill of bills, will hill…’s all their profile memory got wiped out? many old timers have trouble with their memory – this is nothing unique to the CR or is it a new member really? how can they be a new member and and old member at the same time, the 2nd question makes no sense.

    #1048308

    mod, one personality with a ***EDITED*** Inappropriate comments even when symbols are used are still inappropriate.

    AOB, 55, really? never thought about that but now that I do, its starting to make sense.

    ok yeah kapusta & aob, my bad!

    mod: i was asking at the end was it someone who took an old member’s sn? we can see from the 2 josephs that it is possible for 2 members to have the same sn!

    go back to the list of questions that we generally do not answer. there was an addition.

    kapusta: i remember she said something about it (like “i guess i can’t talk to you”) when girls & guys talking was being discussed. & she uses lol a lot 😉

    mod, ***EDITED*** you know what you typed and you know it is not acceptable. this past attempt at humor also fell flat. As was mentioned in answer to a previous question from someone else – All posts and all aspects of all posts must be kosher and not merely sound kosher. this and your previous did not pass the kosher test. btw they did not even pass the sounds kosher test.

    This question is aimed at the mods, or anyone else that can assist.

    When you post a link to a previous comment, how do you figure out what number the exact comment is without counting?

    Anyone?

    May I venture to guess all the mods are on thier plum juice break? maybe…

    (It’s ok, I’ll save you the work of posting this. You can delete it once read) mazel tov, you finally made me laugh, not quite out loud, so no LOL, actually it was more of a smile and a quiet little chuckle
