Just a note on moderators: even though we don't have votes around here for who becomes a mod, we DO want your opinion. We try to choose people that we think most of you will like, but if you have a problem you can PM Andy or me at any time about it. It's best if you PM us at the same time, though, in case one of us happens to be out that day or something. I try to get on every day, but sometimes my time here is limited during school. In any case, we do want your opinion, your concerns, etc. Just PM us. If you're upset about how things are working around here, just tell us.


Also, about the critique point system: because we are adding a mod we won't be implementing a point system immediately. Most likely we'll wait until we really really need it. With a new mod to watch the lit area I think we'll be okay. We're also going to be enacting new policies and such. That sounds scary, but it's not .

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

??? You have a site of your own to run! If you wanted to be a mod you could have mentioned that you weren't too busy. Besides, you have TW and the magazine...and me to take care of! And I'm a handful as it is!

Not a clue. That's up to Andy. I imagine there will be a fair bit of warning before we upgrade though, since it might mean the site goes down for a few hours.

The actual downtime shouldn't be too long. Perhaps half an hour?

The real issue that will take a while are all those site info/web pages, and the look of the forum. Those are all custom changes that we will need to add again. The forum will be completely operational. It will just be bare-bones for a day or so.

So there hasn't been any downtime yet, then? Drat - that extinguishes the spark of hope that my school /didn't/ ban this website, and that the server was just being silly.

Since my home computer (which I'm on now) is as slow as a can of peas, I guess I can't post much. Or often. I'll just make each post a page long, so as to still communicate the same amount of dialogue.

And my simile works, right? I mean, you never see a can of peas going fast... voluntarily. x.o Maybe /I'm/ the slow one here.

If you saw a Database Error there was some downtime last night. I don't know what happened or if Andy is fully aware that it happened...but if you saw downtime at your school it might have been because of that.

No, because it happened both this morning and at lunch. I have Eastern Standard Time, so for instance it's about 5:40 here. Probably just blocked the site. :[ Curse those authoritarian censors. I wasn't doing anything objectionable on this site... save being an idiot and wasting time. ;
