I'm in [/hacker voice]

Is there anywhere on the 'moderate users' page that lists the number in the queue? We gotta gamify this.

I propose a SECRET FORUMS thread where we mock the spammy usernames and email addresses discuss seriously this important job.

Making Light: Time Notices Comments

Quote:
Hereís what moderators need to know:

a) Sure, thereís freedom of speech. Anyone who wants it can go start their own blog. On Yogís board, Yogís whim is law.
b) Yog is an ancient ghod of chaos and evil. And he doesnít like people very much.
c) Moderation is a subjective art, and the moderator is always right.
d) The moderator may have minions. They need to have a private area where they keep the buckets of Thorazine and the cold-frosty bottles of cow snot.
e) The minions speak with the voice of Yog. Yog backs his minions up.
f) There is always someone awake, and in charge, when Yog isnít around in person. The minions know who the Duty Yog is.
g) If someone starts off as a spammer, troll, or flamer, he is a spammer, troll, or flamer forever and is liable to instant deletion/banning with no recourse and no appeal.
h) If the moderator ever needs inspiration, he can re-read Jonathan Edwardsí Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God and recall that the posters are sinners and he is Ghod.
i) Rules? In a knife fight? Yog and his minions have standards, but they donít need to tell the posters, lest some of them attempt to game the system. Attempting to game the system is, all on its own, a deletable offense.
j) ALL CAPS posts are deleted on sight, unread. Mostly ALL CAPS POSTS are ALL CAPS.
k) Anyone who doesnít space after punctuation marks is insane, and can be deleted/banned on sight.
l) Personal attacks against Yog and his minions are ignored. Personal attacks against anyone else are deletable on sight.
While amusing, this approach might fly in the face of the stated mission of :ff: (At least how I understand it.)

I think there might be a slight difference of attitude ... at least we'll pretend not to follow most of those rules.

I've agreed to pay the extortionary rate dictated by the :ff: hosting provider for a renewed SSL certificate, despite the fact that a completely free option exists (but isn't supported by our host).

...and because the extortion is only ~ $3.75/mnth
