I would like to welcome you if you are new to the Moose. Feel free to walk around and check out your new digs. Feel free to comment at any time or continue lurking as you will(I see you out there). If you are an established Moose, pull up a chair and a cuppa.
JanFab has written out some instructions to help.
The big stuff:
– Comments do not Auto-refresh. Click the refresh/reload on your tab to see new ones.
– To check for replies to your comments, click the “My Comments” link in the right-hand column (or go to “My Moose”). Comments will be listed and a link to Recent Replies will be shown. (Note: Tending comments builds community)
– Ratings: Fierce means Thumbs Up, Fail means Thumbs Down, Meh means one of three things: I am unFailing you but I can’t Fierce you, I am unFiercing after a mistaken Fierce, or Meh. Just Meh.
The most important rule around here is
Be kind to each other… or else.
In other words, if you don’t want it said to you, then don’t say it to someone else. Respect is an important thing. If you feel the need to not respect, then step away and take a breath. Political debate can be both spirited and respectful.
For those of you lurking and being shy. No reason to be nervous. If I can publish a diary like this, you can feel safe. Drop us a comment and start making your Moose Tracks. No time like the present.
