I’ve made a couple of changes as this site is getting so lively….
I’ve made it so that you have to register and log in to comment. I’ve also set every registered user to “unmoderated” as the default. However, if I find I have to spend an awful lot of time moving someone’s comments to guano, I may temporarily change their status to “moderated” which means their posts won’t show up in the thread until I’ve approved them If I think they are violations of the game rules I will post them in guano. So you won’t actually lose any posts, but you may have to wait till they show up.
Editing: the edit plugin is broken and there isn’t a fixed version out yet. However, there is a workaround: it is only the popup that is broken, so if you right click (for a PC and whatever the equivalent is for Macs) on the edit link, and select “new window “or “new tab”, the edit window there should work.
I hope that makes life a little more comfortable all round. And thanks to all for being here! It’s getting to be fun. Most of the time.
ETA: I’m struggling to get the moderation plug-in to work as it should. Right now, first-time posters are automatically held in the moderation queue. I think that is the price we have to pay for being able to moderate certain penguins, at least until they are house-trained. Probably worth it
