mods why are you being so selfish? how come we wait an hour for our posts and you just wait to seconds. Huh?
Ours go straight up instantly. You just didn’t refresh fast enough to see it. -95August 10, 2011 12:16 am at 12:16 am #825524
The worst part is when a mod is busy posting while not modding the pending stuff.
And what’s even worse, is when they finally do approve the pending stuff, it appears above their own posts which people already read causing some people to not read the regular posters older posts since they already read the mods newer posts and assume they already read everything above it.
At least if a mod posts in a thread, with their posts going up immediately, they should first approve (or decline) any pending posts made before them.
I hear. The thing is, that maybe sometimes they just log on quickly and post without even looking at the queue. It is a different part of the site.August 10, 2011 12:19 am at 12:19 am #825525
I usually read through the threads before checking for new posts if I haven’t been on in awhile. Once I am reading, I will often comment on the thread and only check the new posts after. Otherwise, it is hard to know what the new posts are referring to.August 10, 2011 12:20 am at 12:20 am #825526
If they plan to post without modding the pending stuff, perhaps an idea is to post under a non-mod screen name so it doesn’t go up immediately and mess up readers keeping track of where they are up to in a thread.August 10, 2011 12:22 am at 12:22 am #825527
On rare occasion if I notice a lot of pending posts I will mark my post as pending after posting so that it won’t go up until the rest are approved/deletedAugust 10, 2011 12:23 am at 12:23 am #825528
i just refreshed and the first thing up was come on mods,YW Moderator 42 1 second hahaAugust 10, 2011 7:33 am at 7:33 am #825529
So can the mods commit to either clear the queue of pending posts up to the time they make any new posts (as a mod) or alternatively either not post if they are not ready to clear the queue or post under a non-mod screen name?August 19, 2011 12:21 pm at 12:21 pm #825530
Whoever is on duty right now doesn’t seem to like me. He (she?) is approving post that came in after mine.
Don’t make me go into the mods’ lounge and do something nasty.August 19, 2011 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #825531
they are having a meeting right now about how to deal with some sticky issues and peopleAugust 19, 2011 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #825532
I figured this is the best forum to post my reply to yossi,
I’m mochel you whole heartedly,
the reason venom was spewed was because people felt offended,
I’m also sorry for offending youAugust 19, 2011 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #825533MiddlePathParticipant
Mod 80, I see the Brooklyn- Jerusalem thread was closed, so I’ll post here. It was NOT yossi2468 who berated me, it was someone else. I think the thread it was on is closed now, anyway. And it doesn’t matter, I forgive the person who did it. There were good intentions in what was said, even if it could have been said in a nicer way.August 19, 2011 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #825534
are you feeling ok? your posts seem different than usual.August 19, 2011 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #825535
frustrated, thats allAugust 19, 2011 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #825536
It seemed like that,
did I have anything to do with that frustrationAugust 19, 2011 3:57 pm at 3:57 pm #825537
noAugust 19, 2011 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #825538

the mods are parsing your comments to ensure there are no grammatical errors, thereby MARRING your name…
Is it possible to at least capitalize Yerushalayim in the title?
TIAAugust 19, 2011 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #825542
80- you sound like you could use a chill pill. maybe leave this place for a little and come back all refreshed and ready to deal with all the nuts here….. hope I was not the cause of your aggravations.August 19, 2011 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #825543oyveykidsthesedaysMember

Umm mod’s – how did my name become Dr.Dovvshtein?
I mean i like it it’s like Dr. doomshtein (who was chozer b’tshuva – may we all be zoche to)August 19, 2011 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #825547
I think you asked for Dr. Dovv awhile back so I decided to add in the “shtein” part and see what you thought. Seems like you disappeared after that and didn’t notice until now. Welcome back!August 19, 2011 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #825548lovesbeingjewishMember

thanks for the welcome 42. I was in e”y for the summerAugust 21, 2011 5:41 am at 5:41 am #825551
mods- no more grammar police please.
If you are driving over the speed limit and you get a ticket, whose fault is it, yours or the police officer’s?
There’s one certain way to stop the grammar police.August 21, 2011 6:05 am at 6:05 am #825552WIYMember
Yout said on a different thread that we should try making things easier for others. If you believe in what you preach then please stop correcting everyone’s spelling and grammar mistakes. Its very unpleasant and seems to be annoying many members. If you feel that you enjoy grammar why don’t you get your kicks by perusing a grammar website and use this website as it was intended.
You can also start a thread about grammar if it pleases you. Just please stop correcting everyone’s grammar. We don’t like it and don’t want the corrections. Everyone seems to understand each other just fine regardless of a few minor grammar or spelling indiscretions. Please kindly allow us to make our mistakes in peace.
Thank you!August 21, 2011 6:45 am at 6:45 am #825553ToiParticipant
i might pull out a shotgun on the cop. that should send him flying. your comments and/or enlightening corrections are not appreciated. can you post a schedule of when you are online so ill know when to avoid this website? thanksAugust 21, 2011 11:34 am at 11:34 am #825554
Can we please start enforcing the rules of the CR? I specifically mean this one:
5 – Please try to post in a language somewhat resembling English. Visit spellcheck.net if you need help. Mozilla Firefox browser also offers a spellcheck option. If your comment is not written in normal English, it will not be approved.

Are you suggesting that those who use English as a second language (ESL) or never learnt English first-hand or are from non-English speaking countries or from non-English speaking homes be banned from commenting on YWN?August 21, 2011 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm #825556
Please try to post in a language somewhat resembling English.
the rule is if the mods don’t understand it, it’s not english. Ergo if they do, then they deem it as english and it’s acceptable.August 21, 2011 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #825557

No, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting they use a spelling checker or Google translate, or [gasp] a dictionary!August 21, 2011 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #825558
haifagirl all i understood was googleAugust 21, 2011 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #825559minyan galMember
moskidoodle, do you really not know what a dictionary is?August 21, 2011 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #825560

it’s called a spell checkerAugust 21, 2011 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #825561WIYMember
I just want to add that those who make frequent spelling, grammar and usage mistakes don’t understand how to use English that well in the first place. Therefore any attempt at correcting them is useless as they won’t get it. Especially a grammar or usage mistake. For those of you who absolutely insist on correcting others, if you really care about the person making the mistake you will explain why its a mistake and teach them about that particular topic so they will understand how to avoid that mistake in the future. If you can’t be bothered to impart of your knowledge and actually help the person you are correcting then all you are doing is showing off that you know English better than the person you corrected. In that case your correction is a nauseating nuisance that you can keep to yourself.August 22, 2011 1:15 am at 1:15 am #825562kapustaParticipant
“I’m suggesting they use a spelling checker”
it’s called a spell checker
Lol, I think that was discussed a long time ago. A spell checker is what a witch would use to check a spell and a spelling checker is what someone would use to check spelling. 😉
Anyone know where it was?August 22, 2011 2:00 am at 2:00 am #825563am yisrael chaiParticipant
“it’s called a spell checker”
I’ve seen it both ways.
Check this out: (abridged version)
“An Owed to the Spelling Checker”
by Jerrold H. Zar
I have a spelling checker.
It came with my PC.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot sea.
Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your sure reel glad two no.
Its vary polished in it’s weigh,
My checker tolled me sew.August 22, 2011 2:30 am at 2:30 am #825564
A spell checker is what a witch would use to check a spell and a spelling checker is what someone would use to check spelling. 😉
I figured someone would say that
but if you do a google search for spelling checker it’s shows results for a spell checker to check your spelling
funny, ayc!August 22, 2011 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #825565
80- you seem very quiet today. no posts. are you still taking a break from this place? I thought shabbos would be enough for that.November 8, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #825566
