As a fairly new poster, I would like to say that this thread is pretty hilarious! My perspective on the CR has changed.September 15, 2009 2:27 am at 2:27 am #1107279
NY Mom, enjoy the craziness, and don’t worry, it gets a lot crazier than this 😉September 15, 2009 2:35 am at 2:35 am #1107280
At first, I thought that all the moderators were generally serious. Then I started to see a few glimpses of humor here and there. But this is outright wacky!
You sure this is allowed? 🙂September 15, 2009 2:36 am at 2:36 am #1107281
The mods pretend to be serious 😉
We’re really so funny we crack ourselves up 🙂September 15, 2009 2:40 am at 2:40 am #1107282September 15, 2009 2:42 am at 2:42 am #1107283
Well, it’s good to know you enjoy your work! (At least some of the time)September 15, 2009 2:54 am at 2:54 am #1107284
We enjoy our work when YOU people post! So keep posting…!
(We just love it when the YW Mod Headquarters gets completely crazy when there is an overload of posts!)September 15, 2009 3:02 am at 3:02 am #1107285
Yeah, when there aren’t enough posts to go around, it gets kinda ugly at the headquarters.September 15, 2009 3:04 am at 3:04 am #1107286
what is this business? there are never enough mods to go around during the day when you’re needed and now you suddenly appear out of nowhere? this is for sure fixed!September 15, 2009 3:06 am at 3:06 am #1107287
Kapusta, are you on during the day? Posts hit the board within seconds. There are never enough posters when you need them…September 15, 2009 3:10 am at 3:10 am #1107288
should I ask why you have to ask that question? I’m on sometimes during day. But I guess I just get lucky when I check and the last update was two hours before…September 15, 2009 3:15 am at 3:15 am #1107289
See? Two hours between posts! What’s a mod to do?!September 15, 2009 3:17 am at 3:17 am #1107290
Once in a while, we need to put up a new pot of coffee at HQ so it takes a few seconds to get your posts approved. :}September 15, 2009 3:56 am at 3:56 am #1107291
26, sit and wait for a poster to show up, of course!!
In all seriousness (yeah I know wrong thread) I sometimes wonder why there is a system of either ‘all or none’. As long as theres one mod when I’m here, you’re fine 😉September 15, 2009 3:58 am at 3:58 am #1107292
BTW, 80, I’m SOOOO curious whats hidden under all those ‘classifieds’…September 15, 2009 3:59 am at 3:59 am #1107293
Welcome back, 55 and 42!!September 15, 2009 4:42 am at 4:42 am #1107294
holy cow! this is the strangest thread i have seen before!September 15, 2009 4:44 am at 4:44 am #1107295
OMG, I just realized that 99 has been gone for a loooooong time, come back 99!!!! We’ll save some donuts for you!September 15, 2009 4:49 am at 4:49 am #1107296
42, if I disappear for a while and then come back, would you get some donuts to me?September 15, 2009 4:52 am at 4:52 am #1107297
42 – I just saw 99. He is fast asleep on the couch. He has empty boxes of sufganiyot all over the floor. There is a sign next to him that says “wake me up for Chanuka 2010”!September 15, 2009 6:59 am at 6:59 am #1107298
joseph & mod80: have no fear, Jax is back! some internet issue, then had to run, then it got fixed, then i was gone…now i is back!
joseph: the tech guy said he’s willing to get me, a free year of internet, once he destroys your internet for a year though! i hope that’s ok with ya!
NY Mom: welcome to the CR Zoo! join the madness!September 15, 2009 12:46 pm at 12:46 pm #1107299
Hey Jax, thanks for the welcome. I tend to post only when I have something intelligent to say (at least in my mind!), but this thread was so funny I had to chime in!
I must admit that at first I didn’t even look at the coffee room. Then someone told me there was a topic I was interested in being debated. Then I really started to check in at all hours of the day and night, reading a lot of different threads. Now my husband says I’m addicted! (Since he’s loves the photo gallery and started sending in lots of pictures of his own, I say that we’re even.) But I still tend to be a little shy, so…thanks 🙂September 15, 2009 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1107300
Jax: NEVER! We Need Joseph!September 15, 2009 1:06 pm at 1:06 pm #1107301
Have no fear, his majesty is here.September 15, 2009 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #1107302
Oh good. I can breath again… <exhale>September 15, 2009 1:24 pm at 1:24 pm #1107303
Ames: Thanks so much! From a veteran poster like yourself, I will take that as a compliment of the highest order!September 15, 2009 1:32 pm at 1:32 pm #1107304
Hey, I think I just made a cyber-friend!September 15, 2009 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #1107305
And another! We’re one big happy family here!! Enjoy the party!September 15, 2009 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #1107306
Thank you, mepal. For someone who’s as anti-social (yet friendly!) as I am, I am really feeling the warmth.September 15, 2009 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #1107307
oh, we’ll unantisocialize you here in no time at all!September 15, 2009 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm #1107308
LOL ames! True, True!!September 15, 2009 1:42 pm at 1:42 pm #1107309
You know, just the fact that the moderators are approving all these posts at the speed of light is really making me feel welcome, as well!
Thanks mods. You know who you are!September 15, 2009 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1107310
Oops! Sorry, didn’t mean to make you wait a minute there before updating. Got distracted. I’ll try not to let it happen again.
Welcome to the CR, great to have you here!September 15, 2009 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #1107311
Distracted?? Take that away before Herr Editor shows his face…September 15, 2009 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #1107312
26 had to stop modding for a minute because the coffee spilled and it had to be cleaned up.September 15, 2009 1:50 pm at 1:50 pm #1107313
So long as there’s a Sr. mod around too 😉September 15, 2009 1:51 pm at 1:51 pm #1107314
Thank you, Mod-26.
Well, I must say that cleaning up in the kitchen after the kids have all gone to school, has never been this much fun 🙂September 15, 2009 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1107315
You wouldn’t believe the jobs they give us rookie mods around here 🙁September 15, 2009 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #1107316
yeah, we know. Thats why some others turn down the offer, as gleaming as it looks 😉
NY Mom, LOL! Thats really funny that you’re doing both at the same time! It’ll probably take you three times as long though…;)
ames, the workload here is kind of scaring me. So I’m just denying/avoiding/evading whateva…September 15, 2009 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #1107317
Ames: Isn’t that what we women do best – multitasking?
Mepal: LOL! You are right!
I better concentrate on finishing what I need to do though, otherwise I’ll still have nothing done by the time the kids get home.September 15, 2009 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #1107318
k 😉September 15, 2009 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #1107319
aaaaaaaah! This is TORTURE!!September 15, 2009 2:32 pm at 2:32 pm #1107320
kapusta, this is for you:
16 minutes without any posts. What’s a mod to do?September 15, 2009 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #1107321
ames, you didn’t say “Simon says”September 15, 2009 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #1107322
26, this is for you:
Sit and wait for a poster to show up, of course!!September 15, 2009 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #1107323
I think ames got toooo caught up with her housework :-/September 15, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1107324
26, its not my fault that they dont let computers in school! you’ll have to talk to them.
I have an idea. In the time you’re waiting for posts, come up with new thread ideas. hows that? 😀September 15, 2009 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #1107325
kapusta, no computers? You sure about that one?September 15, 2009 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1107326
mepal, fine. There probably are some computers but no CR access. That better?September 15, 2009 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #1107327
No. Worse 😉
