    My post is stuck (smartphone thread).


    Since it’s almost Shavuous, in light of the smashing success the thread below has had in past years, please consider reopening it:

    ICOT, I understand that some threads are deemed inappropriate and not approved.

    I also (usually) understand why threads sometimes need closing after they go down a certain path.

    But I never understood threads where the OP is approved but the thread is then immediately closed. Especially ones litoeles harabim such as the one you mention.

    Would the esteemed, beloved and respected Mod reading this post, or any others drinking coffee with him in the Mods staff room care to enlighten us? Thank you.

    not sure why it was closed. I will reopen it, and if the mod who closed it decides it should be closed they can reclose it.


    Thank you


    Are we allowed to cross-post blog posts from cross-currents here, especially for posters who don’t allow comments?


    Definitely you can refer to it, and quote selections (write where you got it from).

    I’ll even allow you to quote the entire thing, since when you do, it pops up that it is under Creative Commons License attribution. This seems to mean you just have to credit it to them.

    No links.


    I’m feeling nostalgic I want to look back on my old threads from when Ifirst started posting how do I do this?

    If you go to your profile you can scroll through all the threads you have posted on in chronological reversed order. Click on an early one.


    No, don’t go start bumping all your old ones. H E L P!! This place is coming a mad house.


    As a new mod I think I will use my powers for tikun olam. First I will comment on every single post requesting a mod’s response, and then I will give everyone in the CR the perfect subtitle. This will make the world a better place to live in.

    that’s basically what I do, except I try to annoy people as much as possible while doing it. huh.


    73 you WORK??????


    since when?????

    YW Moderator-73

    read the subtitle, dude.


    Is it possible that some stuff is missing? Other than deleted threads due to content.

    what stuff


    1. I AM NOT A DUDE. Dudette is the correct term

    2……Isnt #1 enough?

    YW Moderator-73

    okay…read the subtitle, undude.


    I don’t know but I thought that I had many more threads than I found and my first thread was not the one that shows up as first. I thought I had more before that.

    threads don’t show up by order of age, they show up in order of when you last posted on them. so if you started a thread really early in your membership then bumped it at a much later date, it would appear with the newer posts.

    other than that, I’ve got nothing.


    My first week as a mod and I already gave out wrong information. I heard the consequences for that are very painful.

    YW Moderator-73

    eh, don’t sweat it

    this time


    WIY, click on your profile, then add “/page/53” to the address bar. You can keep going down (52, 51, etc.).

    You don’t need to be a mod to figure this out.

    (Everyone has a different # of pages, you happen to have 53 at the moment.)


    53 pages?!? Thats’s over 2,600 posts. (way past what I could have dreamed of doing) Who else besides me LIVES here?


    LF, can you guess how many you had?


    OMG thats tonz! Ive been here (OMG) 2 years and WIY had been here for 4, he has QUADRYPLE the number of pages I have!!!!!!!


    DY: Maybe, just maybe I can. Can you?


    LF, I see I have more than you, but fewer than WIY.


    I guess Daas Yochid is very popular!


    Why does clicking on DaasYochid’s username bring me to


    It has been that way forever. Try clicking in mine.


    Ooh, ooh try clicking mine!!!!


    Weird. Is this a bug or did you set it to work this way? I mean, I understand shopping’s goes to her SUC page, but the others…


    Oh, you can do it yourself! πŸ˜‰ actually the mods did mine, but there was a thread this past week about how…..I dont remember


    Thank you for removing what needed to be removed.


    Even though you had to do so twice πŸ™‚


    G. A. W.

    The 2nd one was after much editing, after pointing out the errors of my 1st draft.

    I read your comment, you are 100% right, but that wasn’t the angle I was coming from. I tried to fix it by saying things such as

    However, I don’t get a vote as to what gets posted and what doesn’t, and those who vote have voted NO.

    Despite your clarification, due to the sensitive nature of the issue, we will leave the topic out for now. Hope you understand.


    What in heaven’s name is going on here. What juicy piece slipped by me? So wrong of you to pique my curiosity without the gory details. How do I get you back? OH! I was going to say tha <Zapped> Thanks Mod for erasing that.


    Um…mods? Is that topic I posted gonna go through sometime? It’s been quite a while, other comments have been posted since, and I don’t think I said anything too crazy…

    Not sure how I feel about it. If the wrong people Google it it may incite violence and I don’t want to be responsible


    LOL πŸ™‚ Then I’d be the one responsible, not you. Although we’d have to check with ubiquitin to make sure…


    mods, instead of a like button, can we have a “potentially inciteful post” button?


    Am I in your top 10 most annoying posters?

    Little Froggie

    Nope. Not at all. Me and my other 9 made it to the top


    Thanks for throwing someone into a fire, if you know what I mean.

    You’re welcome


    A new Election 2018 thread appeared this morning and then disappeared after an update I posted based on additional election results. Is this an error? Thanks

    Just wanted to make sure you’re paying attention. It’s back now

    Was this post’s being approved due to context not being visible when modding?


    Yes. I was fully asleep when I approved that.


    It’s a nonsense post of no humorous value on a thread
    from a first-time poster asking a simple question.


    I just noticed this on the first page of the thread:

    Mods? Mods?


    Any thoughts on 6 years modding the CR, 29?


    Mod-42’s been around for over a decade. In fact, since the first day of the CR. And a mod on the main site even before the CR existed.


    “<p><span style=”color: #008000”>Huh?</span></p>”
    “<p><span style=”color: #ff0000”>Yes. I was fully asleep when I approved that.</span></p>”

    I’ve realized what went wrong here. Currently, raw(?) links to posts, e.g.,,
    are turned by the CR system into links to the thread they’re in.
    My first recent post was meant to link here and my second, here.


    My birthday! Wow.
    I think things have changed so much in 6 years, but mostly societal influences. Posters used to talk to each other and chat with each other. We had to keep out phishers, stalkers, tone down tons of zionism/anti zionism hate, and delete topics that now are just accepted and discussed. Now its a lot more posting than conversing, we delete things we can’t believe people would bring up, and more people are following the now accepted model of using your level of anonymity to determine if something is worth saying.
    I continue to be grateful to be a part of a group who are willing, for at least portions of their day, to be here in this room with us.


    DISCLAIMER:My opinions are my own. I am not speaking for any other mods or admins nor am i endorsed by any advertising agencies. I have no first hand information that would be useful for the impeachment nor do i know the identity of the whistleblower.


    and delete topics that now are just accepted and discussed

    Examples, please?
