Mod 80, I just spilled my coffee all over my desk, I’m laughing so hard! I also didn’t realize we were allowed to divulge so much information! I’m still getting used to all the rules around here. And I would never take the time to write such a long post like yours lest another mod click “aprove” or “delete” before me 🙂August 4, 2009 1:25 am at 1:25 am #1048892shaatraMember
Oh Gosh…August 4, 2009 11:52 am at 11:52 am #1048893AnonymousInactive
Mod 26, you aren’t allowed to divulge EVERYTHING! That’s why Moderator Security had to step in and edit your post.August 4, 2009 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1048894AnonymousInactive
I’m so embarrassed right now.August 4, 2009 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #1048895
mmm… i think 55 should be embarrassed. it was 80 who had to edited by security not 26.
looks like 80 might get some help from 55 on the overnight shift…August 4, 2009 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1048896
excellent!August 4, 2009 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1048897
Maybe we should open a new thread for moderators to converse with each other.
I usually just yell over the top of the wall… something like “rookie, please bring me some more coffee… and don’t spill it this time.August 4, 2009 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1048901
So THAT’s what the new mods do all day. Service the SR mod’s. Pretty impressive job to say the least.August 4, 2009 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #1048902
Whew! Glad I’m not one of those “certain posters”!August 5, 2009 3:23 am at 3:23 am #1048903the.nurseMember
you mods must be verrrrrrrrrrry bored tonight with the lack of action on the CR
that is an understatement!August 5, 2009 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #1048904
Thank you YW Moderator- 72 for poting my D’vrei Torah, that i sent in via email!
a pleasureAugust 5, 2009 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #1048905August 5, 2009 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #1048906
mepal: this thread is only to post questions/comments to mods! (ok. i’m taking my CR Chairman position very seriously!) go back and re-read the posts re: users answering for Mods… I’ll cut some slack b/c you have not been around much latelyAugust 5, 2009 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #1048907
I’m surprised that went thru and wasn’t declared “off topic”………
rookie mods let EVERYTHING inAugust 5, 2009 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #1048908
mod: you guys sure are really showing your funny side lately!August 5, 2009 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1048909
Was that a rookie or a grumpy?! 😉
Oh, and thanks for ‘Koshering’ my post!
a rookie or a grumpy? Who says that those too are mutually exclusive!August 10, 2009 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #1048910
oh rookies, watch out! (re rookie mods let EVERYTHING in )
and I believe its ‘those tWo’ not ‘those too’! (re a rookie or a grumpy? Who says that those too are mutually exclusive!)
Sooo, you’re trying to say that rookies are permitted to be grumpy? No way!August 10, 2009 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #1048911
<ouch> Well then…I guess they ARE mutually exclusive! 😉
who are you going to believe a rookie or an experienced moderator (even one with a spelling deficiency).August 11, 2009 1:17 pm at 1:17 pm #1048912
hmmm, I’m really stumped now. Gotta think this one over.
re: Sometimes mepal just hits the nail on the head. yes, sometimes. rarely, but sometimes…August 11, 2009 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1048913
Now who was THAT?
OMG, you’re telling me I was wrong all along? So I WAS hallucinating 😉
hallucinating may be a bit strong, however, in this case rookies are not allowed to be grumpy, however, sometimes they like to feign being grumpy to give an appearance of being a senior modAugust 11, 2009 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1048914August 11, 2009 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #1048915
yes 80, you should know ;o) (is anyone else feigning being sensitive?)August 12, 2009 2:15 am at 2:15 am #1048916
mod80: neither is anyone else around here!
I’m lostAugust 12, 2009 3:01 am at 3:01 am #1048917August 12, 2009 3:09 am at 3:09 am #1048918
COOL! Maybe we rename this <exclusive> thread?
or we can rename it “conversations between me(and my)pal”August 12, 2009 4:18 am at 4:18 am #1048919
or just name it me, myself & I[as in mepal]!August 12, 2009 4:43 am at 4:43 am #1048920
being as we have some new moderators here since this thread opened, I will periodically* bring old questions alive again to give the new moderators a chance to answer. Tonight we will start with the first question however, it will not be in the order originally asked. Additionally, if the new mods want to dig up old questions to answer, feel free to do so…
FOR THE NEW MODS ONLY
FROM THE OP:
1. Do you only read the posts that you put up, or do you read everything that gets posted (like the rest of us)?
*periodically means if I or another mod remembers to do this…August 12, 2009 4:48 am at 4:48 am #1048921AnonymousInactive
Wow, I’m so nervous to be singled out like this. Mod80, Mod58, are you around? Wanna go before me?August 12, 2009 4:50 am at 4:50 am #1048922
can i hand the nervous mod a cup of coffee!? that should calm the nerves!August 12, 2009 4:54 am at 4:54 am #1048923August 12, 2009 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #1048924
Oh gosh, 72 what did you do? You scared them away!August 12, 2009 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #1048925
“or we can rename it “conversations between me(and my)pal”
or just name it me, myself & I[as in mepal]! “
You guys are a panic!August 12, 2009 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1048926August 12, 2009 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #1048927August 12, 2009 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #1048928
That’s a start 😉August 12, 2009 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #1048929August 12, 2009 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #1048933
So can I offer you a cup of fermented plum juice yet?
80, when you are old enough to discuss fermented products, I will explain it to you…August 12, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1048934
Oh you poor thing! I’ll tell HIM to be nice and make an exception…August 13, 2009 12:54 am at 12:54 am #1048945
this was a real question asked by: Jax (about 3 months ago)
is it just me or this is mepal vs the mods thread?!!?
New Mods – any answers?
original question/answer is HEREAugust 13, 2009 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1048946
72: am i allowed to be flattered that a post of mine was singled out?! no, after all, you were not the author of the first question repeated for the new Mods to answerAugust 13, 2009 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #1048949
question of the day for the rookies, I don’t think 58 or 26 have been heard from yet…
Why is it that mods don’t usually post their opinions on the issues we discuss? Is it because you post on regular screen names, or because you have tremendous self control?
original question from ames can be found HEREAugust 14, 2009 12:25 am at 12:25 am #1048950AnonymousInactive
Ok, ok, I’ll answer both questions:
1) I read the posts I moderate. When I can’t be around to moderate I try to catch up on what I’ve missed by reading whats up in the CR already, but to tell you the truth, I get my kicks by reading the deleted posts 😉
2) I don’t post my opinion on issues because as a moderator I represent YW, and not myself. I do express my opinions using my regular screen name, but that isn’t too often either. Or maybe I should say, not as often as I should, since every word I write is a benefit to all those who read it 😀August 14, 2009 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1048951
Hi there, 26. Nice seeing ya around!August 14, 2009 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #1048952AnonymousInactive
thanks mepal, nice seeing you tooAugust 14, 2009 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #1048953
Not like I’m easy to miss….;-)August 14, 2009 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #1048954
“Why is it that mods don’t usually post their opinions on the issues we discuss?”
We are above such petty matters, besides when you are actually Moderating, you must keep all your focus strictly on The Board. We are kind of like air traffic controllers, or policemen during an arrest. Only more highly trained.
Some moderators have screen names, some don’t. I don’t.August 14, 2009 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1048955
…quoted by the mod that adds her 2 cents into most posts….August 14, 2009 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1048956
well, sort of…not exactly…unfortunately my opinion has changed recently.August 14, 2009 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #1048959
I doubt if 58 will be able to answer these questions in the near future. I heard he just got recruited to give a course in Special Operations Moderator Training, in Aruba. The Navy Seals requested him specifically. I heard he rescued a group of them a few years back in CLASSIFIED.August 14, 2009 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #1048960
Oh wow, 80! Thanks for letting us know instead of keepin us wonderin’!
