Hello?
 
 
9 hours later…
4:08 PM
@NeilFein hi!
 
5:00 PM
Hi, @MonicaCellio!
 
@NeilFein howdy. Saw that there'd been nobody here for a week and then you were here, so I decided to be nosy and see what was going on. :-)
@NeilFein I received a compliment from you via a third party yesterday. Thank you. :-)
 
The room's not normally packed with throngs of chatting users, but 8 days with no activity is a bit low even for this room.
??
 
@NeilFein being cryptic in a public forum. Does that help?
 
You mean Aarthi?
 
@NeilFein yup! I said yes and thank you.
 
5:03 PM
Hey, that's great news!
Welcome aboard.
 
@NeilFein thanks, should be fun! (I just had to ask first "is something wacky going on that requires five all of a sudden?". No, she explained about the rotations.)
I assume I'll need to formally sign the agreement before jewelry is issued. :-)
 
Yeah. It's been mostly just me modding here lately.
 
(Haven't received that yet.)
Oh, hadn't realized you were soloing. I mean yeah, you're the one I usually notice doing such things, but I can be oblivious sometimes so I figured it was me.
 
There's not much about Writers that you need to know in terms of modding; I try to let the community close bad questions where possible.
 
@NeilFein yeah, same with me on Mi Yodeya. The community should at least initiate if not act entirely, unless it's dire. I don't think I've seen "dire" here on Writers.
 
5:07 PM
There was a time that mods had to close a lot of questions, but we've edged away from that a lot, fortunately.
 
@NeilFein early in a beta there aren't enough people with privs, but we're past that now.
Have you been a mod from the beginning?
 
I added you to our mod-only chatroom.
I've been here since the private beta, but only a mod for the last several months, I think.
I assume there'll be an announcement on Meta at some point. Did Aarthi say when all this would be taking effect? (I pinged her in TL about it.)
 
@NeilFein I haven't gotten email from Aarthi since I accepted last night; I assume I'm in the queue with a thousand other things (such is the life of a community manager). We didn't talk about when, but I assume as soon as she can process it. I also assume an announcement would come only after that.
 
@MonicaCellio Makes sense.
I gotta go run some errands, I'll be back online later this afternoon. Again, welcome!
 
@NeilFein thanks and talk to you later!
