Discussion on things to take note of in an emergency-like single-moderator situation

+ 0 like - 0 dislike
205 views

Due to my retirement that will happen soon, PO will have only one moderator for a few weeks in the near future.

This thread is meant to discuss anything of importance with respect to this upcoming special situation, as needed.

As mentioned already here, this message probably points to dilaton feeling uneasy about there being no-one who could check dimension10 in case he hides something during this period. I think the danger is small now but perhaps you, @dimension10, could say something reassuring to everyone.

I could make a list of all content I hide, right here on this page,  besides completely uncontroversial things (spam,  complete, complete gibberish,  illegal things). I already promised Dilation to send him a list of such posts,  but this might be a better solution.

Yes, it is better to have it public.

  • As noted on the election thread, any nominations before 1230 GMT will be temorarily deleted - thus I've temporarily hidden 3 of my own nominations, and will reshow them after 1800.

It might take slightly more time to get off-topic questions closed, spam deleted, etc ...

So please stay calm and patient.
