Unless we get any Smurfs... <_<

We only deal with little green men here, not little blue ones...  that's why they 'hired' me... to keep the blues ones out.  ;)

Ahem, I had a terrible crush on Smurfette as a young lad.

Pistols at dawn?

How many notifications in total, on average? Are we talking scientific notation, here?

Being the new guy on the team, I'm still adjusting how I get notifications.   I had 70 some today alone.  It took me about 4 hours to go through the forums to read and respond to all the threads I wanted to as a player.

I just got a notification about a reaction on one of my posts but after clicking on the bell, it was gone o_O So, does a notification disappear if someone removes the reaction?
I've seen the name of the forum user in the little window which pops up in the lower left window of my screen but no chance to find out which post got the reaction since it is in a thread where I have several posts but all of them are already a few days/weeks old...

Check your notification now. Do you see a "like" on this post?

Nope, just one for the quote.

I assume you liked/unliked it? ;)

Thanks for testing though :)

How long is it between replies that your post gets merged with a previous one?

Liking then unliking a post can result in a notification being sent. 

Automerging is set to 10 minutes.

Makes it sound like it can be changed. Can it?

Yes. I suspect that if something happens in between, for instance if I liked the post, then quoted it, then unliked it, then the notification would not disappear.

Yes, the automerge timer can be changed. But why would we want to?

Some images, including my own in both the actual post and in the editing boxTM, simply don't showw while some others do.

Am I the only one with this right now?

ctrl-shift-f5 or ctrl-shift-r on most browsers will force a reload of everything. I expect your cache is wonky.

So I just noticed a lot of moderators on /r/Kerbal_Space_Program/ /r/KerbalSpaceProgram...

Er, I was just going to ask how much you guys interacted with the reddit mods, but then I literally just discovered there's two KSP forums, not including r/krpc, /r/KSP_Missions, and /r/ksptrickshots...

So do you guys mix with reddit at all? Or is it just the Wild West over there and you try not to look at the carnage?

A couple of our guys are also Steam moderators, but no Reddit mods here.

I’ve seen a couple of mods in the Addon Releases section with red tags before their names saying something like ‘parts’. What’s up with those? Are they the remnants of an attempt to categorise mods?

Sal_vager knew the alchemical secret of making colorful tags, but alas, he did not pass on his secrets before departing the forum. I suspect you're seeing a relic of olden times.

When did @adsii1970 become a mod?? :blink:

I always thought he was perpetually under the ban hammer...

You know, it was back in January...

No, not perpetually under the ban hammer - just under the warning hammer. I often joke they made me a moderator as a means to FORCE me to behave better... :D
