    It's like reading the transcript of a parliament meeting.

    On the newbie-bashing issue, I'd suggest reminding people that no one who actually is an established member of the community would bash a newbie -- that's a pure sign of insecurity.

    Anyway, tentative conclusions would be a good addition, if there were any.

    I'd assume that the VIP issue was brought up by myself.

    And that the issue on newbies was brought up by Kessel Runner because I had lost my temper to someone from May of last year who never posted.

    Still, thanks for keeping this up.

    `in the near future the next Vertical, SotS, Liz Skywalker'

    Liz Skywalker mentioned in the same sentence as a mod and a former mod. A blatant clue for the next mod maybe? :)

    Also, perhaps, you might look at it as bashing the wrong newbie could get us the next berry or... well you get the idea.

    Wait until they've been here a few months before knocking the blinders form their eyes.

    In terms of technical stuff, are you looking into threads not being 'upped' when someone posts in it? I have seen this a fair bit lately. Usually its in Communications, but yesterday it happened in one of the movie forums too.

    Just a note: the "previous thread for reference" link - in future, will it show every single previous thread, or only the previous week's thread? Because if it shows everyone, it's going to take up a lot of space. I think 1 week is enough for that one. Perhaps responses to the previous week's discussion could also be included?

    Any chance of some elaboration on this "Continued discussions of ways to improve mod-member relations" and this "Discussed the status of "____ by ____ threads"."?

    I'm glad the reports are being continued. It makes folks feel more involved in what's going on. And it really can't take all that long to write up that executive summary. But the fact it was posted goes a long way. :)
