[15:23:05] <janrinok> Hi guys - LaminatorX - How do you want me to space out the stories?
[15:32:04] -!- weeds [weeds!~4118a13c@cwz-29-45-637-17.columbus.res.rr.com] has joined #editorial
[15:32:14] <weeds> hello
[15:32:31] <janrinok> hi weeds how are you?
[15:34:09] <weeds> good, you? Enjoying this freezing spring day here in Ohio!
[15:34:59] <janrinok> As long as you are enjoying it! We've just had the coldest night of the whole winter, but it would be almost balmy compared to what you are going through.
[15:39:31] <weeds> I admit to having a personal problem with "maths" (I tutor high school math here.) But really, isn't it slang?
[15:42:00] <weeds> I was looking ofr stories this AM and went to a magazine I used to get when I was building scanners called "Photonics Spectra." The article headlines were are inviting, but they all ended up being "this COULD that" and there was no real news.
[15:42:28] <weeds> s/ofr/for/
[15:42:34] <janrinok> I'm not sure I follow but, it's maths for you and I, and math for Americans. We (Brits) argue it's a contraction of the word mathematics, and that there is no word in the singular - mathematic
[15:43:41] <janrinok> Or perhaps you use 'math' also, judging from your comment
[15:45:09] <weeds> yes, I use math. Wanted to get your perspective.
[15:45:37] <janrinok> It appears to be a geographical divide
[15:45:52] <weeds> yes, just a curiosity
[15:46:54] <janrinok> It isn't seen as slang, which sounds a derogatory expression, as it is often used in items such as BBC News, educational discussions, etc
[15:49:33] paulej72_away is now known as paulej72
[15:50:16] <weeds> I see. I won't call it slang anymore!
[15:52:10] <janrinok> weeds: That only applies in Brit English, it might be considered slang elsewhere ;)
[16:11:19] <weeds> Have you seen a boost in submissions?
[16:12:43] <janrinok> working on them as I speak/write
[16:21:32] <LaminatorX> Hi Janrinok. Sorry for the slow notice, I'm at the office. I say let's post away. We asked for it, they delivered.
[16:22:15] <LaminatorX> yes, weeds, more submissions since last night than the past several days.
[16:22:44] <LaminatorX> I hope it's not a one time thing though. Really, if half the users submitted one story a month, we'd have plenty.
[16:29:35] <weeds> What do you think about maybe making the submitters name more prominent in the post, or allowing the submitter to suggest a department, or giving mod points to submitters?
[16:31:15] <janrinok> LaminatorX: Hi, hope you and the family are well
[16:35:11] <LaminatorX> They are yes, thank you. It's quite refreshing, actually. Doubly so since my sister-in-law will now allow my new baby nephew to come near my no-longer plague stricken household.
[16:35:37] <janrinok> lol - some people can be a little over-protective...
[16:35:59] <janrinok> But with a new baby one has to be careful
[16:36:07] <LaminatorX> A bit of caution was appropriate.
[16:36:24] <janrinok> So, how is your new nephew?
[16:36:53] <LaminatorX> Cute little thing. Big eyes, starting to focus them more than a few feet away.
[16:37:54] <janrinok> Cute - so not like you at all then? ;)
[16:39:13] <janrinok> I have a nephew who is remarkably like I was at that age, I do feel sorry for him. I hope he grows out of it.
[16:55:40] <LaminatorX> There's hope for us all.
[16:56:20] <janrinok> lol - I have to go a cook for an hour or 2 - the queue is good up to 1730 UTC
[16:57:09] <LaminatorX> I'll be lunching shortly myself. This is certainly a welcome change from last week's stress.
[16:57:18] <janrinok> True

[22:14:20] <LaminatorX> No worries, Janrinok, you've done plenty. I'll take this "night" shift.
[22:16:02] <janrinok> I'm going to switch to #staff for a while and then call it a day. Have a good one!
