If you are new to the Moose, Kysen left a Moose Welcome Mat (Part Deux)
so, please, wipe your feet before you
walk in the front door
The important stuff to get you started:
- 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.
(Some other commenting/posting/tending notes for newbies can be found in this past check-in and, of course, consult Meese Mehta for all your questions on meesely decorum.)
Here is a great link to have open in a tab: Motley Moose Recent Comments
This is pretty darned easy to remember ... the posting rules for a new diary:
Be excellent to each other... or else
From Kysen's keyboard to your eyes:
Think of our comment threads as dinner table conversations. We start with the assumption that all come to the conversation with good intentions and go from there. If you get upset or angry, get up from the table and step outside for a bit.
For those looking for a second chance to make a first impression, that is very good advice.
