I am excited to announce that we have a new addition to the Admin team. @Greta is now an admin! :D

Also, please congratulate our moderator team on being selected as moderators and thank them for their willingness to help:

Well, I have a question for the team, can you pleas tell me how many of my posts are there in the queue? I think that now it is... 3 weeks waiting for some posts, there is probably a mistake or something.

Be fair :)

Nice clean-up, Scott.

Great to see that you are on top of things, even if that's not where anarchists belong, in my opinion.

Too bad my favorite moderator, S, appears to have been purged.

I think I will miss him/her, despite our differences, which weren't that substantial. He did so much work for this forum at some point. Fare well, S!

I noticed that I'm now in a unique position as all of my colleagues (queue moderators) appear to have been purged. I certainly could have suffered the same fate given my level of participation. Thanks for sparing me.

I'm not in any bitter feud with any of the moderators so, things are looking good.

I think Greta's appointment as a sub administrator is very well deserved and although I'm not really familiar with all of the new moderators, I'm sure they'll do fine.

Congratulations to all the new volunteer moderators and our new unofficial censor chief, Greta!

Thanks, Scott and Greta! I'll surely be around. : ] Glad to be a part of the team! I'll do whatever I can to promote civil discourse and keep the deep discussions going, hopefully to a better end.

I've found a quick way to clear the moderation queue.

1. Right-click the post link and open as a new tab in your browser. Open four or so.
2. 'Mark' the posts by ticking the checkbox over to the right of the screen.
3. Now read the posts, which are now in their own browser tab. Close them when finished.
4. Click the 'approve' button.

This is easier than entering each post one-by-one because you then need to go through several pages of confirmation before getting back to the moderation queue. The method above simply by-passes those pages.

Of course, speed and ease shouldn't diminish the quality of our job.

Hope this helps!
