From the comfy chair

Welcome our new mod overlords:  Fowl, Noopi, Jose wants Noise, RADAR, KyleZ & Karl Sagan, Thank you for stepping up to take care of our community. There's still room for a couple more mods, so if you're interested, let me know.

Also thank you to the staff writers. You've already seen posts from Philbert (now TimD) and Smasher. Tom W, Karen and RADAR are also working on pieces. I'm really looking forward to seeing how all these voices develop. I'm really hoping this site gets known for telling alternative stories. Humour would be great too! If you want to get in on the fun, let me know.

I really like this template for the blog but there are a few tweaks I'd like to make that require coding. Would someone with CSS skills be willing to help out?

Feedback from last week:

* Ixnay on the RAB hootenanny. Many had concerns about opening the door to possible troll hoards so we'll keep it cosy in here.

* There was a huge drop off in comments once the party weekend thread kicked in. I loved seeing all the music choices and gif-offs and that's something I want to keep a feature of the site. But I noticed some people wanted to talk baseball and it was getting lost. So this week we're going to keep the party weekend thread but there will be a thread going up Saturday at noon that will be for baseball discussion. Hoping this will serve the community better.

I'm really open to suggestions  so if you have ideas, let me know!
