[18:46:42] <Fnord666_> cmn32480: quick question about the NYC subway story
[18:46:50] <Fnord666_> if you're about that is
[19:00:49] <Fnord666_> Ok, general question for the editors here
[19:01:01] <Fnord666_> The story https://soylentnews.org in the queue
[19:01:02] <upstart> ^ 03Error
[19:01:04] <exec> └─ 13Error
[19:02:02] <Fnord666_> is for a story from 2015. Is there a particular way that I, as an editor, would indicate that I am aware that a story has some age to it but I think it's interesting
[19:02:19] <Fnord666_> so I want to run it anyway based on the content?
[19:14:27] <cmn32480> I'm about
[19:15:13] <cmn32480> [Ed Note: We know the story is from 2015, but thought the content still relevant and interesting.]
[19:15:20] <cmn32480> Fnord666_ ^^^^,
[19:27:22] <Fnord666_> thanks. I figured as much but wondered if there was a way we should mark it so the question doesn't arise
[19:27:42] <Fnord666_> and ~gday cmn32480
[19:27:52] <Fnord666_> how is ya?
[19:30:13] <cmn32480> I is doin ok Fnord
[19:30:18] <cmn32480> ~gday Fnord666_
[19:30:20] * exec dexterously tosses an amulet of feminism to Fnord666_
[19:30:35] <cmn32480> life has been keeping me busy as hell
[19:31:57] <Subsentient> cmn32480: I'd really like to have my editing privileges restored, so I can resume my small role as corrector of typos etc. That one prank I pulled was on a story that wasn't even supposed to be published. I'm sorry.
[19:32:51] <cmn32480> Subsentient, I will put an email in to the senior staff with your request.
[19:33:31] <Subsentient> cmn32480: Thank you. I was a good editor, for a long time, and I posted a goofy totally SFW image on a defective story, and everyone lost their minds...
[20:10:47] <Fnord666_> cmn32480: life has a way of doing that
[20:10:57] <Fnord666_> ~gday cmn32480
[20:10:59] * exec overratedly impales a wine flute of backrub with a falafel on cmn32480
[20:11:11] <cmn32480> that sounds yummy
[20:11:22] <Fnord666_> it does, doesn't it
