    Beldaran and I at least have tea to comfort us. As to stealing the thread - meh? I'm going to post . . . lots more than will be necessary to keep people in the loop about major moderation decisions.

    I got a disappointment about grad school first thing this morning, so I'm taking the day off doing mod stuff unless someone on Discord tells me I'm definitely needed. This is because today is for sulking and working out logistics for funding and apartments and also because I don't want to make decisions that impact other people while I'm in a bad mood.

    (I'm fine, I'm still going to a really neat program, but taking a day to sulk means I won't do it later, so.)

    • determined (in thread) that the FAQ should be updated
    • determined (in chat) how it should not be updated
    • updated FAQ
    • drank a lot of wine and fucked off again to watch XXX because none of the Fast and the Furious movies are on Netflix or included in Amazon Prime.
    Edit for transparency: we're watching Hellboy instead.

    • burst in on a user anyway because concern was expressed and, while being comforting isn't particularly in my wheelhouse, getting people in touch with resources is
    • updated glossary in response to suggestions from Albedo, primarily making subforum descriptions more, uh, descriptive

    • moved fighty posts from walk-in freezer to TCHGB because it seemed inappropriate to derail a vent thread with fighting
    • went ahead with the move because there were a couple users actively for it and no one saying no when I posed the general question.

    I keep reading "approved user post(s)" as kind of an equivalent to "I give you a hamburger", and now I'm imagining increasingly imcomprehensible/eldritch transparency reports which all end with that.
