I would like to thank everybody for wishing me a Happy Birthday.
I now should technically change my number to YW Moderator 001. If you remember, I said the numbers are the moderators ages backwards. I am just to lazy so I will keep it at 99. Also I want to feel younger.
The mods saved me a piece of cake – it was really good. Thank you!
Why do I get the feeling you never were the new “guy” around hereJanuary 9, 2009 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832137
You know curious,
I feel really bad.
Thank you so much for my bed.
A lot of times I moderate from my phone. (It’s not so easy, but I got the hang of it.)
I wasn’t able to see the bed properly on the phone.
I’m just seeing it now for the first time. It’s awesome.
Thanks a ton!January 9, 2009 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832136
He came highly recommended!January 9, 2009 8:31 am at 8:31 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832133
Ok – I’ll be truthfully honest with everyone. I have a job other then moderating. Although moderating is a full time job.
There are many times that I moderate and can’t answer even if I want to! Because I know I will get into a conversation. There are times that there are long pauses as there are times that we aren’t all on. We are all from America, so it makes it a little harder especially for the people in Israel.
The past few weeks, I’ve been working very hard at my other job as a few projects that I’m working on are all peaking now. It has limited my moderation time. But we have good news….
We have a new moderator coming up any day now. He is finishing up his final courses at YWN University and pending the passing of his final and his physical, he will have amounted enough credits to get his official moderator degree.
He is a com mentor on the CR but please don’t waste your time guessing as we won’t disclose it.
We are working on creating even more moderators. It is a top priority here as we realize it is an issue at hand.
Thank you and Good Night!January 8, 2009 5:40 am at 5:40 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832088

I could alwys use someone to do graphic design – but that doesn’t equate with food.
A new couch? How about a queen size bed. I don’t know what I’d do with it because it won’t fit in my room, but that always my dream as a little kid.January 8, 2009 5:20 am at 5:20 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832078
If you want me to vouch for you – you need to do two things.
1- come over to me in person and introduce yourself.
2 – bring food
Then you should be fineJanuary 8, 2009 5:14 am at 5:14 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832073
But before I became a moderator, I was vouched for by a memeber of the YWN staff.January 8, 2009 5:09 am at 5:09 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832068

I haven’t been gone – I was here the entire time watching the chatter flourish and the moderation panel filling up by the second. (Of course trying not to fall asleep on the couch while moderating.)January 8, 2009 4:57 am at 4:57 am in reply to: POLL: Do You Think YWN Should Have More Mods To Go Faster #832058
I’m right here – I just haven’t had much time to post recently.
I agree that we need more mods. However, it’s not easy to pick mods if you don’t know the people you are giving moderation rights to. The way it has been is that in order for you to be a moderator someone has to vouch for you. So its not easy to find people.
OK – Sorry about the lack of posting (and moderating for those that moderate).
I was on a Chanukah vacation in South Florida. It’s georgous there. I would love to live there. (Aand the weather is great as well.)
Anyways – didn’t have much sufaganiot over the vacation unfortunately.
My totals were as follows.
Sunday – 5
Monday – 2
Tuesday – 2
Wednesday – 2
Thursday – 0 (VERY disappointing – I went to a massive Chnukah party that night – expecting that I would have my fill of sufganiyot there – but NO SUFGANIYOT OR LATKES! And they called it a Chanukah party. The Chutzpah!
Friday – 2
Shabbos – 0
Sunday – 2 1/2
Monday – 0
Total – 15 1/2
NOT IMPRESSIVE AT ALL
I had one and that’s it for a total of 2.
(That’s not to mention the 10’s of latkes and wings and franks ‘n blanks and other goodies)
First of all, I wasn’t sick on the first night. I fell asleep on the couch moderating. The other two nights I wasn’t sick just full.
Its ok – you don’t gain weight on Yom Tov.
I just hit up a Chankah party and I’m sitiing here and there is a huge pile of sufganiyot in front of me. But I am stuffed – oy vay
I’ll start with one and see what happens.
I’m not doing good – I only had one so far today and I don’t know if there are any on the menu for tonight.
PLEASE KEEP TO THE TOPIC OF THE POSTS!
My count so far –
Night 1 – 5 Sufganiyot
Night 2 – 2 Sufganiyot
Night 3 – 2 Sufganiyot
According to the Machmir Shita – I am 15 Sufganiyot behind schedule. According to the Ikur shita I am 3 Sufganiyot ahead.
Back to sufganiot,
So I’m eating a sufganiya tonight, and I take a bite and low and behold as far as I bite into it – low and behold NO JELLY. Before tragedy hit completely, I ran to the boxes of sufganiot and say that only some boxes had jelly. I quickly grabbed a jelly donut and started eating it. So when I started writing this post I had two sufganiot partially eaten. But now they are both gone. Mmmm….
There were actually 53 posts that got deleted, so you would be number 553. sorry to burst your bubble.
Well, nice text!
Two donuts down (I guess 9 to go!)
I can only try –
So my stomach is a bit better in the morning now, we’ll see what’s on the menu tonight.
I did not have my 3 other donuts because I don’t want to be sick all Chanukah.
I’ll try again tomorrow.
Thanks for asking.
My stomach is felling a bit better. Another 3 donughts? I don’t know. Its pushing it. 🙂
I fell asleep on the couch (no its not leather) right after I posted my last post.
Ok – I’m on the couch moderating with my phone – I can only mod short posts so keep them short sweet and to the point
Stop eating? I still have 3 more to go until I hit the proper 8.
I think I’m gonna lie down on thw couch until my stomach clears up, then we will move from there.
They say you should have one for each night – I didn’t realize that meant one a night – I thought tonight we should have one for each night.
(My stomach is really starting to hurt now. Uh oh!)
I use voice recognition. I t didn’t pick me up so well at first, but it got very used to me hearing it say “DELETE POST”.
The titanic sank when I was 3! I don’t really know how it looked like more then anyone else.
dont have internet –
(We are going off topic here)
I could only speak for myself, but when there are a bunch of posts to moderate I always moderate the shorter ones first, that way they can go up as fast as possible. When the short ones are done I move to the big ones.
The moderators numbers are really their age reversed.December 19, 2008 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm in reply to: The Great Potato Latke vs Hamantaschen Debate —> VOTING IS CLOSED <— #933047
I’m gonna officially go with Latkes!
They’re just so delicious especially with applesauce on them!
Maybe YW Moderator-42 will be so kind as to explain how all these things work.
If you ask nicely maybe he’ll do it.
(Just remember, go easy on him, he’s new)
Not the same guy – he emailed me and gave me the green light to sticky!
I didn’t mean to ignore you, I feel bad you felt that way. Sometimes a straight out formal request to the powers at be is better then subtle hints.
OK everybody listen up,
YW Moderator-42 (our new resident programer apparently) mentioned on page 2 as follows: All spaces are consolidated into one space unless you use the code “
” for each one.
So now, instead of putting 10 spaces put 10
‘s otherwise it wont work.
OK, you win.
