babble is rabble.ca's discussion board but it's much more than that: it's an online community for folks who just won't shut up. It's a place to tell each other — and the world — what's up with our work and campaigns.

Hullo, quick moderating update....

Looks like I'm going to be moderating from now until Jan 4, while your regular hard working mods take a well deserved break.  So, behave yourselves.

 

I haven't posted much lately, but I have been looking in.  I haven't actually done anything moderatorish since the new software, so if you find me closing threads at 100 posts, please someone just give me a shake.  I'm kind of familiar with the new stuff, so I hope I don't make everything crash.  Come to think of it, people seem to have crashing the system pretty much covered anyway.

 

Looking forward to the next two weeks.

ok, so I'm off to a great freakin' beginning.  I was playing in the new software trying to block a new spammer, and couldn't do it.  So I started playing with toggle settings and blocked my own account.  I've sent out a call for help to the staff list.

 

Well at least I figured out how to block people.

Was the user name of the spammer "MaysieEndlesslyMocksOldgoatBwahahaaaaaa"?

Because that wasn't me.

Nah, it was someone with links to a porn site.  I'll pre emptively ban you when I get all this straightened out.

For crying out loud, oldgoat, I'm trying to get some sleep. I've reversed your act of ritual suicide. As you were. ETA actually, turns out I can't do that. Must be the server update! Let's all wait for the calvary.

Welcome back, oldgoat.

Enjoy your breaks, Rebecca and Catchfire!

It's bad enough that Christmas preparation starts right after Halloween. I think we can at least wait until Fat Tuesday before we start thinking about THAT one....

Hahaha!  oldgoat banned himself!?  HA!

This is so funny!  I love it. 

Er, sorry oldgoat.  I mean, I'm so sorry that happened to you.  Really.  I am.  To show you how sorry I am, I'm going to go start a thread on how liberating thongs are.

Just re-read Oldgoat's post. He actually banned himself??? Laughing

Welcome back Old Goat. Cool move banning yourself.  It highlights your dexterity and skill.

Just a brief addendum, to go with our seasoned, hall-of-fame moderator oldgoat, we are introducing some new blood: our fearless babble book club leader and general smart person, Kaitlin McNabb will be joining oldgoat in moderating duties.

I think if they both go the next two weeks without banning themselves (again) we can call it a success. Happy holidays, everyone!

Good on you for giving oldgoat a chaperone, Catchfire.  Clearly he needs one!

Great. Religious porn. (from SJ???)  What's next, a Nativity photo?

Now both Maysie AND I are giggling over this.  Yes, this is what we do when Maysie comes over.  We log onto babble and giggle at oldgoat.  (There may have been a smirk or two from radiorahim as well.)

And since the absence of a certain moderator relieves any and all from any potential conflict of interest, I am back for a while.  

Looking in at a few threads so far though, I'm not so sure. I can't believe how wrong everyone is, and it's seems a bit daunting to think I can set things aright in just a week.

Why is there a comma in front of responsibly?

Do they mean the responsibly can also be removed to read: Remember to drink this holiday season?

We need reminding?

bagkitty, that's not the porn you promised. I'm suing you.

Edited to add: Upon closer examination, those 'roos sure have gigantic thingmabobs hanging down. Surprised

@lagatta - I think it is there to elicit precisely the kind of reaction you just had. I am not, however, certain whether or not it was intenional - 'roos are not good typists at the best of times, much less when they are four sheets to the wind.

@Maysie - I think the word your are looking for is testicles. Innocent

Yes, but thingamabob sounds way more Australian.

Actually they tan those things and sell them to tourists as marble bags. It's quite sturdy leather - not what you'd expect. A friend of mine brought one back for us.

Yes I have been recruited to the moderation team, hardly as a chaperone. So far I have not banned myself, but only time will tell. Be nice or I might have to make a slightly dramatic overshare in babble again!

From a holiday moderating announcement, to an old guard mod banning himself (HA HA HA HA!) to kangaroo balls. It's Xmas at babble, alright.

Welome Kaitlin! Laughing
