[02:27:38] * Bytram reads the Editorial Policy (DRAFT): https://wiki.soylentnews.org
[02:27:41] <exec> └─ 13Editorial Policy - SoylentNews
[02:46:25] <Bytram> zz_janrinok: Looks like I should have checked with you, first, before suggesting de-priv of long-absent eds, instead of going to TMB and then Deuc. I apologize for leaving you out of the loop.
[02:49:58] <Bytram> zz_janrinok: separately, as to the EiC, my experience is that you have provided a gracious, effective, and gentle guidance to all issues that I've seen come your way. I fully endorse your continuing as our EiC. Besides, you have posted the most stories to the site!
[02:51:12] <Bytram> Should you need someone to act in your stead, I would be willing (if the other editors are in agreement) to take on a *temporary* role as Acting EiC, if needed.

[16:20:53] <janrinok> Bytram|away, I don't have a problem with the removal of privs - it needed doing for sy reasons. No apology expected or required. It's just that LamX was still formerly the EiC, so I thought that we ought to correct our documentation.
[16:38:46] <cmn32480> pfttt... documentation??? nobody reads that shit!
[16:39:49] <janrinok> I did
[16:39:57] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480
[16:39:59] * exec implicitly throws a github of spew at cmn32480
[16:40:03] <cmn32480> pfttt... documentation??? only 1 person reads that shit!
[16:40:11] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[16:40:13] * exec unnecessarily reticulates a tarball of secret sauce for janrinok
[16:40:13] <janrinok> fair 'nuff
[16:40:38] <janrinok> what did the doc say?
[16:40:45] <cmn32480> still broke
[16:40:48] <janrinok> yup
[16:40:52] <cmn32480> and he didn't mean jsut my ankle
[16:42:16] <janrinok> we have a problem with 2nd ed'ing. Most of mine are not being checked until after they are published, despite me putting them in the queue 12 hours before.
[16:42:34] <cmn32480> short version, it is healing, but not as quick as he'd like
[16:42:44] <cmn32480> I saw them this morning and 2nd'ed
[16:42:49] <janrinok> more stories are being added, but no-one appears to be checking those that have already been added to the queue
[16:43:42] <cmn32480> I've been doing them as I see them, sadly time is limited, as you are well aware
[16:43:47] <janrinok> Yeah, I know, thanks. But as a team we are not covering all the bases yet
[16:44:03] <cmn32480> 'nother person or two would be a big help
[16:44:18] <janrinok> looks like it is time for another recruitment push
[16:44:30] <cmn32480> been that time for a year and some
[16:47:44] <cmn32480> NS said he is likely to get back to editing in the next couple weeks
[16:48:00] <CoolHand> janrinok: I do a lot of 2nd'ing.. unfortunately I wasn't around yesterday to do it due to surgery of my kid..
[16:48:13] <cmn32480> he oK coolhand?
[16:48:22] <CoolHand> I've actually thought the 2nd'ing situation has been a lot better recently...
[16:48:41] <CoolHand> cmn32480: yeah.. he did well (it was a planned surgery on his shoulder due to footbal injuries)
[16:48:48] <cmn32480> good
[16:49:02] <cmn32480> now submit to your flogging like a good editor
[16:49:27] <CoolHand> meh, they can dock my pay ...
[16:49:29] <CoolHand> :)
[16:50:01] * cmn32480 brandishes his cold soggy wet noodle....
[16:50:26] <CoolHand> I wish hof.pl had most active 2nd'ers, b/c I bet I'd be doing pretty good... :)
[16:50:35] <janrinok> CoolHand, I'm not pointing a finger at anyone in particular, but for whatever reason we are not keeping up with the stories
[16:50:46] <cmn32480> I woudl wager you have been doing the majority of them recently
[16:51:07] <cmn32480> welll... you and EiC

[16:54:07] <cmn32480> work?
