MOD A Brief Interruption In Your Scheduled Modding (a sorta away announcement)

    Hello fellow fanficers!

    This is just a brief announcement to let you know that we are going to be a little short-staffed on the mod side of things for the next month or so. Our very own Briannakin had a slew of DRL hit her all at once, and she is going to be MIA besides checking in here and there whenever she can. Likewise, mavjade has had her own RL matters that have kept her away more often than she would like as of late. Things seem to be leveling out for her, however, and she should be around more. (Seems to be and should be are the key phrases there.)

    Between mav and I, we'll undoubtedly be able to hold down the fort while Bri is gone. Yet, should you find yourself in need of a modly presence and neither of us are online, the following mods have graciously volunteered to help keep a watchful eye on the goings on hereabouts. @Adalia-Durron is a fanfic regular you already know and love, and I know you are pleased to welcome back @A Chorus of Disapproval as a fanfic mod pro tem. (Come on guys, look pleased.) @Jedi Master Scorpio has also generously offered his assistance, so let's be our best selves and impress a newcomer to our corner of the boards. (Hear me? Don't scare him.)

    In all seriousness, though, we know that you guys are a fine group of folks who are capable of handling this maturely. There's really nothing for us to worry about. Or, at least, that's what we assured Bri. So, um . . . let's not make liars of us if at all possible. ;) [:D]

    We will be fine! No stressing and lots of us know enough to answer questions for newbies. Plus honestly this is the quietest friendliest community (Stares at Reddit)

    All of this is correct. I'm just here to help you hide the bodies.

    Here to observe, and to help keep the chaos to a minimum. :) (Read: I might not have a ban hammer, but... what Chorus and Kit said. :) We'll be fine.)

    I need your help in hiding the body of my boss... and also probably the co-worker that brought all this on. At this point I'm honestly looking for a new job because this poop-show is just ridiculous. I'm actually done for the week because I have run out of hours they are willing to pay me for (but now I have to do all the other stuff in my life that has stacked up).

    Anyways, thanks Fan-Ficcers! Y'all are awesome!

    Stands in corner attempting to look scary but failing miserably.

    Should I bring my bow and arrows along?

    Take Care @Briannakin and rest up. Do what you have to do, its's all good ;)

    Sorry. Probably a silly question (but those who know me realize those are the only type of question that I ask:p) but if I am interested in hosting an event this summer, should I contact just @Mira_Jade by PM or should I include other mods in the message?

    Don't want to bother anyone who is already swamped with other stuff in their lives and careers, but also don't want to be rude and leave anyone out who should be included. Or am I overthinking things as usual[face_thinking]

    I'd send Mira a PM. The FanFic mods have a private forum where they discuss stuff like this. She can bring it up there for the other mods.

    I was wondering the same thing, because I have a sort of ongoing PM thread that includes all three mods where I send them my mod-type questions. But I can do ones just to Mira for the time being. Thanks for the clarification! :)

    Yep! You can definitely still PM me and I will make sure mav and Bri will be able to see your message when they are able. Mav is still trying to check in fairly regularly, and we'll be able to get back to you on things like challenges and what not without too much delay. So if you have ideas for anything fun this summer, please don't hesitate to share just because we are a bit short-staffed. We're still here for you. [:D]

    Thanks, @Mira_Jade. [:D]

    I really appreciate all the work you and the other mods do to make this one of the friendliest and most fun places to post on the Internet!

    Please still include me on your PMs if you would send it to all of us at the same time. I should be around and that way it still is who ever sees it first can answer or start any discussion. And for an even bigger reason, that way it's not so much all on Mira. (The only reason I didn't say this earlier is I literally couldn't log on, the board glitch was killing me.)
