And we're back! 🎉

@johnyorke i think? He has coral crew badge.

Edit: ignore me! @nicolam is the new name on there I believe!

Although strangely, if you look at the :monzo: group, Nicola (and Jonas) have an empty space, rather than ‘Primary’, next to their details. Everyone else has the ‘Primary’ entry.

It’s almost as strange as the discourse clock…

Oh, and Monzo doesn’t have enough people called David

What is the optimum David number?

Nice to know there are still 2-3 people that haven’t been online in the last 2+ months. :grimacing:

Also, @rat_au_van I think the ideal number is: (Total number of Michaels - 1)

I like the Idea of Michael + 1

Almost my bete noire, but thankfully bludgeoned my way past that to my badge

I’ve checked in to ensure that additional :mondo: staff get tagged accordingly

Just noticed a discourse change - the ‘last visit’, red, horizontal dividing line is now displaying in topics which you haven’t fully read (yet) :+1:

It’s been 8 days since I’ve messaged a mod, I got a really generic reply that at a push could be considered relevant to my message, I then replied to that but none of them have responded, if there’s not enough staff resources to keep the platform safe by responding in a timely manner then it shouldn’t be up, or at least give the coral crew more permissions.

This wasn’t a safety issue but I dread to think what would happen if it was.

Who did you message? Your best bet is contacting @alandoe directly, instead of anyone else really.

So back to normal then? I don’t think I’ve ever received more than a copy paste response from any forum staff, even when it concerned safety issues.

I don’t feel free to say what I really want to say here, but if they did that, it’d be the worst thing imho.

I shame if the case. I had a few chats with a mod shortly after it reopened, and they were a breath of fresh air from the days of old.

Depending on the situation, would it not be an option to reach out to a coral crew member? I’ve certainly done that a few times to ask some generic questions, and most of them are great with replying and answering your query. I imagine if it’s not something they can help with, they’d escalate it to Alan anyway.

As @michaelw90 suggests above, your best bet is just messaging @AlanDoe directly, rather than flagging something for moderation attention, because that never works in my experience.

Thanks for letting us know.

I’ve flagged entire posts for moderation and to be fair they’ve been quick off the mark. Closed the topic down, removed whatever posts were needed, then reopened it.

It was literally just to remove one of my own posts which i couldn’t do myself for some reason.

After multiple chasing :arrow_up: it’s now done :muscle::+1:

Flagging option removed for everyone or just me? :grimacing:

I’m level 2 again, was I 3 before? :man_shrugging:t3:

Maybe lowly people can’t flag anymore.
