      They are probably somewhere else, moderating or perhaps sleeping. (They’ve been known to sleep sometimes. Who does that!?)

      There will NOT always be a moderator available. And if you don’t know by now, we let a lot more fly here in the forums than other places. It’s only fair that you have a safe place to say FUCK. (Okay, maybe that won’t fly, maybe it will. It’s a jungle in here. )

      **trolls**

      But also as you know, the internet has trolls.

      So if you need to summon a moderator, there are “key words” that will get our attention quicker than others.

      I won’t list them here though, because trolls will exploit this trick.
      So next time you need a moderator, ask for one, and include a keyword, say for instance, “Mods we need you. Troll”. ***It might not appear for you to see, but we will see it.

      We might not get there right away, but we will come as soon as we can.

      Edit: Thank you all for bringing “trolls” to our attention. You all rock! Keep up the great work.

      IMPORTANT:

      DFTT: Don’t Feed the Trolls
      It really makes our life easier and faster for us to clean up if YOU DON’T respond to trolls. Try your best to keep scrolling and don’t engage in nonsense. Once we catch wind of a problem, we will work to remove all parts of the conversation, including those comments from legitimate users that are engaging with bad users. It’s not always you, and if you don’t participate, we can clean faster.

        Why is my post awaiting moderation? It was just a simple reply to someone on my topic. Is it because I just joined today?

          Technical difficulties:

          It appears something has happened to the forum software so that no text box and Submit button appears in any new posts — only posts that already have some replies.

          If this isn’t fixed, we won’t be able to provide any answers, advice, or sympathy in new threads.

                          Can you please say or do something about a poster (@will) who keeps going into different threads talking about the one particular poster who has been blocked??

                          We are working on it.

                                    I’m sorry if this isn’t an appropriate place to ask this, however, I’m having trouble posting and wondered if it was a site glitch or if I’m not allowed to post? It is happening frequently.

                                      I guess it fixed itself?? Idk that was really strange. Might have been a glitch?

                                                We are working on adding “Top Contributor” denotation in the forums to users who pass our smell test, and it will appear under your name. This will help on some fronts and hopefully let people know we acknowledge their participation.

                                                      Think maybe next season we can have a “redacted B’s coffee and smoke lounge” as a forum??

                                                      I know myself and others that hang in the threads I make CAN be rowdy at times. And say things that aren’t exactly…..ya know, appropriate. As that was always my way of expressing myself lol

                                                      Just a thought? Folks would know what to expect!

                                                      I’ll email ya about it rather than forum discuss. I plan on joining fb. Just keep forgetting about it when I actually have time.

A simple back tab click sends you forward to see your comment. If creating your own topic – You mustn’t forget to add your e-add. Don’t worry, it isn’t published. So, not sure if either of those answered your particular problem?

Not sure why he’s become a target. But I suppose misery loves company. And waiting on IRS to release much needed funds will have the misery effect on some! Understandably so.

                                                                      Yoga anyone?!

                                                                                Sometimes it’s really just someone having an off day and a gentle nudge will get them back on the path to greatness. It’s really easy to forget that text is hard to read (interpret) and people can misconstrue easily. Maybe try a nice approach.

                                                                                #Time Out

Call for a mod. Once you’ve done that, it’s best to walk away from the situation, as you probably need a break!
