2021.12.06 00:03 longhairxxjungkook How do you feel about slow conversations and responses?
F here and new to Bumble. I have several ongoing conversations and my matches’ response time range from 6-24 hours. Is this normal? These are also new matches and it’s really hard to talk/get to know each other when response times are so long.

2021.12.06 00:03 Tama_Breeder Outlet problem
I plugged a small space heater into the same plug as my tv and a few seconds after turning the heater on, the tv and heater both turned off along with my fan that was plugged into a nearby outlet. So two outlets in my room aren’t working now, the others are working fine, I’ve switched the breaker off and back on which hasn’t done anything, and I’ve gone through my house testing and resetting the buttons on other outlets. What do I do now, also I have no idea anything about this stuff other than what I’ve googled in the last ten minutes

2021.12.06 00:03 StrawberryGirl_7 Black Friday 2011
I worked for Target 10 years ago (as my first job) for the holiday season. I was 17 and in high school. On my third day, they had me scheduled to work a 12 hour shift on black Friday (starting at midnight). After 6 hours, I was able to take a lunch break. My adrenaline started to wear off and I started having extreme anxiety. I went back to the register but I started feeling really nauseous. I had someone cover my register and just made it to the break room before I got sick all over the floor. I was sent home but then this lovely 45yr old manager decided to spread a rumor that I was drunk on the job and that's why I got sick. For the remainder of my employment, I would always hear people whisper about me and how I'm the wild alcoholic who showed up drunk to work.
It's been 10 years and I manage 3 million dollar construction projects now but Target will always be the most stressful job I've ever had. Not even mentioning the time an old woman punched me...

The St. Jude marathon is a fundraising event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital located in Memphis, TN. Not only do they provide incredible help for sick children and their families, they also leave a special footprint in our little city. While today was a PR for me in the marathon, it's much more important to note that this was also a PR for me in terms of fundraising. So far this year I've raised over $2000 for St. Jude! If you're interested in looking for a worthy cause to donate to and are fortunate enough to have something to spare, I'd highly recommend looking at this organization.
This is my third time running the full marathon at St. Jude. You can read my 2018 report here
and my 2019 here
. To summarize those two reports I had a massive blowup in 2018 because I didn't respect the distance. In 2019, despite some ankle issues that sidelined me for a few months, I managed to run a PR of 3:27 alongside my cousin. I skipped the virtual race in 2020 but had a goal way in advance to break the 3 hour mark.
The race course changed a fair amount this year - most notably in the fact that we no longer run on Riverside drive (which has a great view of the Mississippi River and a challenging little hill), less time spent downtown, and two loops through Overton Park rather than one. I truly love the St. Jude marathon and will run it every single year I have the ability to, but I hope that race organizers do not stick with this specific course in future years. From what I understand there have been concerns about traffic during the marathon, and while I totally sympathize, I feel there are better solutions than the course we were given this year. More on that later.
The 2019 St. Jude marathon was the last "big" race I've participated in due to COVID-19 and lockdown precautions. I enjoy journaling my experience training so that I can look back and remember how I was feeling on a given day. It's something I recommend to everyone. That said, the next two sections are more for me than for everyone else. Training During Lockdown
(This part will be long - if you're only interested in the actual race, scroll down to the next section.)
After my 3:27 at St. Jude in 2019, I started watching way too many Jim Walmsley videos and decided I wanted to get into ultramarathons. I signed up for a 50 miler in May of 2020 with a tune-up 50k in April. After a brief break after the marathon I started my first attempt at ultra training. This ended up being a lot of fun for me and conducive to how I prefer to train. I'm a big fan of long, grindy sessions that focus more on endurance than speed. The mental game of distance running is what really attracts me to the sport and it only gets more mental as you go further.
During this training, I started hitting new all-time highs for weekly mileage - around 60mpw. I was getting more experience with trail running and long uphill sessions on the treadmill. I started doing some weight training twice a week as well - mainly focusing on deadlifts, squats, and even a fit of upper-body stuff. I was feeling a new level of fitness and was becoming excited for what the future held.
Unfortunately what the future held was COVID-19. Both my 50k and the 50 miler were postponed until 2021 and I was devastated for a few days. I felt robbed and frustrated. Ultimately I understood the decision, but it was a tough pill to swallow. Since there were no races to look forward to in the foreseeable future I decided I'd give myself a few weeks of speed training and try to cash in a half marathon PR. In April of 2020 I ran a solo 1:26 half marathon on a pancake flat loop in the country. Considering my former PR was a 1:33 and I had mostly just been training for an ultra, I was over the moon with the result. I decided to shoot for sub-3 at St. Jude 2020.
A few months later the official news came in that St. Jude 2020 would be virtual. Another bummer, I wasn't interested in a virtual race, so I shifted focus to the 50k and 50 miler in 2021. 2020 ended up being an overall awful year, but in terms of my running it was super productive. Not having races to look forward to me had me doing proper base building and reminded me of why I love to run.
By the end of the year I was starting to feel a bit of burnout. A huge project at work was underway and my responsibilities kept growing. I was feeling a lot of stress and doing a lot of after-hours work which ate into my running time. Around this time there was some talk of a big promotion that I was being considered for. I started to focus in a bit more on my work life and let my running fall off. In an attempt to itch the racing scratch, I traveled to Missouri in October to run in a local 10k where I was only able to manage a time of 41 minutes over a hilly course. I was disappointed with where my training was.
2021 started off with more of the same but I was starting to find more time to run again. My goal 50 miler was only a few months away and I felt like I had some catching up to do. Although my big work project was now wrapped up, I found myself with a whole new pile of responsibilities. I had also started to feel some tenderness in my ankle - I've dealt with posterior tibial tendonitis in the past and it felt like it was flaring up again. I used this as an excuse to keep my mileage low while I continued to focus on work
February of 2021 hit us with a historic snowstorm - the most I've seen during my lifetime in this area. We were totally unprepared for the weather and while we didn't have it as badly as folks in Texas, many of us were snowed in for about a week. This resulted in more time off from training. The very next week I had the privilege of officiating a wedding for a friend a few hours away. I wouldn't trade that experience for anything, but in the back of my mind I knew I hadn't had enough time to train for the 50 miler. It was rapidly approaching and between life responsibilities and crazy weather I wasn't able to spend nearly enough time getting ready. To add to this, in preparation for my upcoming promotion, I moved out of my small apartment in Arkansas and relocated to the Memphis suburbs. The move took more time and energy from me. Early 2021 ended up requiring a lot of me and I failed at keeping running in the mix.
This all culminated in a very lackluster performance in my 50k tune-up race. My cousin and I ran it together and we had a tough time - a rainy, cold day on muddy trails. We went out at an ambitious pace and were not ready for the course or distance. We walked it in for the last few miles and came home with an unimpressive time of 6:52:25. This result didn't effect me in the way I expected it to - I knew it was simply the result of being undertrained. During that race I knew I wouldn't be ready for the 50 miler and decided then that I'd bow out and turn my focus to St. Jude 2021. I was proud of myself for taking it on the chin and moving forward. Bad News
The hits, however, kept coming. Without airing too much dirty laundry, the week after the disappointing 50k I received news that I would not be getting the promotion that I had expected. This blindsided me. I had made considerable changes in my life in preparation of the new role but, as I was constantly reminded, nothing was set in stone. To add a cherry on top I received my second COVID-19 shot the day after the news. I felt hurt, betrayed, and most importantly, that the last few months of sacrifice had been for nothing.
I wish I could say I handled the news with grace, but I found myself falling into a depression. It's fascinating to look back in my training logs during that time period - a huge and unexplained gap. Six weeks with only a single run. During this time I did very little - I gained nearly 20 pounds in no time and started drinking noticeably more. I became jaded towards my workplace and did the bare minimum that was asked of me. As someone who has struggled with depression in the past, it was amazing how quickly I slipped into old habits.
This is why I've found running to be so important to me. Running is by no means a cure for depression, but it's been a catalyst for so much positive change in my life. I'm a totally different person than I was five years ago, and I truly believe I have running to thank for that. I knew I had fallen into a funk and needed to try and work my way out of it. I slowly started running again - just every couple of days. These runs are also interesting to look back on. As someone who enjoys journaling on each session, these runs have no notes. I had nothing to say. I was making progress but needed to make other changes in my life as well.
Thankfully, after a few months of looking, I accepted a job at a different company. This was a huge boost to my morale and helped me let go of what happened. I learned some valuable life lessons from that experience but I'm happy to have it behind me. As I started to inch back towards normalcy in my life, I reminded myself that I still had plenty of time to get some proper training in for St. Jude this year. Training and Rebuilding
Near the end of July I began the Pfitz 18/55 training plan. I've been eyeballing the 18/70 plan for years but I didn't think I'd be ready for that much volume yet - especially considering that I was coming back from a hiatus.
I struggled early on in this training plan - it was difficult to get into a consistent groove again, my legs still needed to readjust, but I was also starting this plan in the dead middle of summer. This is probably one of the most frustrating parts of training for the St. Jude marathon if you live in the area. An 18-week training plan for the early December race will have you starting out during the hottest days of the year. I pride myself on my ability to run in high heat, but since I was coming back from some time off I just couldn't hang with the heat. The real solution to this problem is to run in the mornings but waking up early has always been a struggle for me. My goal next summer is to finally commit to morning runs.
It's funny coming back from a break - it's so easy to think you've lost all of your fitness. I tried to remind myself that it would come back quickly, but a heat index of 110F had me stopping to walk on easy 5 mile days. I was proud that I was able to stay positive during these early days of the training cycle; I was skipping days and struggling to keep any kind of consistent pace but I knew things would improve over time.
By September I was starting to feel like I was getting back to where I was. I hit my first 50 mile week in ages and, even though I didn't feel particularly fast, I knew that I'd continue to improve. Now that I was living in the Memphis area I had access to much more pleasant running. It was nice getting to see other people, compare myself to others on popular segments, and even run over some modest hills. It was a pleasant change from my perpetually flat and solo Arkansas training.
This was my first time going through a popular training program - in the past I've mainly just ran mileage and used local races as my speedwork. Doing things like 1k repeats were a new, but welcomed, shock to my system. I've tended to avoid speedwork in my training - I've had a history of injury and I've attributed that to bad form when running hard. This helped me learn a bit about myself during hard efforts. One of the biggest takeaways was that I tense up considerably when I know I'm running hard. "Just relax" became my mantra during speed days. I slowly but surely got better about staying loose during harder efforts.
The greatest perk of my new job is that it's 100% WFH. This lent itself tremendously to training because I could often get a run in during my lunch break. This was huge after Daylight Savings - I could actually continue to get runs in during the daytime. After feeling overwhelmed at the beginning of the year trying to juggle running with the rest of life, it made me super thankful that I was back in a manageable spot.
This was by far the most consistent I've ever been in terms of weekly mileage. I was regularly hitting 40-50mpw with added speedwork. More importantly I never once dealt with a single niggle or pain. I started to become excited for what the marathon held for me this year and hopeful that I could finally take a swing at running under 3 hours. I occasionally had to restructure my training weeks to accommodate for other things in my life - most notably by running 40 miles (10 w/ speed + 10 easy + 20) within 3 days near the peak of my training. I never once had an issue during the later weeks in the training plan - I felt like I was recovering more quickly, running more consistently, and learning much more about myself. At the peak of training I hit a 20 mile training run at an average pace of 7:45 - I felt strong and controlled throughout, closing hard in the final mile. Considering that was faster than my marathon PR pace, I knew I easily was in PR shape.
That said, the training cycle still had it's share of trials and tribulations. The summer heat just wouldn't leave the city. It felt like every tempo run or interval session fell on the sunniest day of the week. This made it extremely hard to gauge where my fitness really was. A marathon pace workout in sunny 90F weather felt more like a 5k effort. In November we were still having occasional 75F+ days. Things finally began to cool down a bit but I was unsure where my fitness really was. My final solo 10k time trial came in at a time of 40:39. I knew I needed at least a 39 minute 10k in order to have much of a chance at a sub-3 marathon, but I reminded myself that the weather was far from optimal and that I'd perform much better in competition.
As I went into the taper phase of the program, I learned that taper tantrums are real. I decreased my mileage for the preceding two weeks and filled the extra time I had on my hands with self-doubt I would even be able to complete the marathon. I looked back on my previous training and would go through a constant rollercoaster of self-doubt and overconfidence. My legs felt heavy and my resting heart rate seemed to be higher than normal. I even tried limiting my caffeine intake prior to the race - that'll never happen again. It made me way more irritable during race week and didn't seem to give me any kind of additional boost when I took my gels during the race.
In the final week before the marathon, the heat decided to make one last visit. My final run, on December 3, was in 70F with 75% humidity. Weather predictions were showing rain and temps in the 60's for the race. I eventually came to terms with the fact that we wouldn't have perfect weather and just reminded myself that everyone else has to deal with the same thing. I told myself that I'd start out at sub-3 pace but if things didn't feel right I'd reel it back in. In that past I've had an issue with overcommitting on race day pace, leading to a couple blowups, so I was proud that I was able to put my ego to the side and acknowledge that the day may be more about survival than anything. If conditions were optimal I'd see how long I could hold a 6:52 pace and take whatever happened to me, but if I didn't like the weather I wanted to readjust and take a more conservative 7:10 pace.
This year the race capacity was limited to 70% compared to other years due to COVID-19 precautions. There also seemed to be some murmurs of people angry about that fact that the race had a vaccine requirement. What was odd was how people only started complaining about it the week of the marathon. Race organizers communicated this months in advance and made it clear that proof of vaccination would be required to participate this year. Regardless of what your feelings are about the vaccine, I did find it a little humorous that the "do your own research" crowd somehow missed this information. Pre-Race
I woke up at 5:30 and had a small breakfast of a banana and a protein shake. I got to the race early - about 7AM. Thankfully we managed to avoid the rain but the effects were still there - it was super muggy with humidity basically at 100%. On the bright side the dense cloud cover was keeping the sun away. I did a brief warmup of a few strides and dynamic stretches and had some nervous chatter with another runner who was hoping to get 1:30 in the half marathon. At 7:30 they called for the first corral to start lining up - due to COVID-19 precautions the start would be a bit different this year. People were assigned corrals by projected finishing time as usual, but we'd trickle out instead of everyone starting at once. My sub-3 predicted time put me in the very first corral.
I suddenly found myself a little intimidated. The 10k, half marathon and full marathon were all starting at the same time. The first corral was full of people who looked super fit. I started doubting myself all over again. A guy came over and asked what time I was going for. I told him I was looking to break 3 and he walked off. I stopped him and asked what he was looking for - he told me he was going for 2:50. Most of the people around me were half marathoners. I started worrying that I had picked a spot too far up in the pack and would get passed by everyone but decided to stay where I was. Before you knew it we were listening to a former St. Jude patient sing the national anthem and, after months of waiting, we were out the gate! Race
The race starts downtown, right off of Beale Street. I felt lonely for that first mile. There were plenty of people around, but I ran the 2019 marathon with two people who are close to me. Neither of them were running this year and the reality of that really sank in at the start. I loved the nervous chatter of talking to my friends while we were grinding away. In front of me were a group of college kids who were chatting - I found myself wishing I was having a similar experience to them. As we headed down 2nd Street I reminded myself of my plan - stay at a sub-3 pace for the start but don't be afraid to pull the plug if the conditions don't feel right. The first mile split came in exactly where I wanted it but I noticed that my watch was already slightly behind the mile markers. The St. Jude course has an abundance of turns and it's very easy to run extra distance if you're not paying attention. I reminded myself of this and started trying to run tangents when I could.
The third mile brings us through the St. Jude campus - as soon as we entered I was swallowed by a group of people who suddenly sped up. There's always a special energy as we run through and see some of the kids and their families. This part of the race is always touching and is a great reminder of the real reason why we're running that day.
As we headed back south on Front Street, I heard someone in the group behind me say that they were looking to go sub-3. I turned around and asked who said that and met a pair of guys from Nashville. I told them I was hoping for the same and we started running together. We chatted for a while and they asked for advice on the course. They were super friendly guys and I'm thankful I found them. That little bit of chatting filled the void of not having a friend with me.
However, by about mile 4 I was already coming to terms with the fact that this would not be my sub-3 day. I was keeping the pace just fine but the humidity already had me drenched. I knew I wouldn't be able to carry the pace through 26.2 miles. I didn't want to be a downer to my new Nashville friends so I kept it to myself and trudged along. We stayed together until about mile 7 - the St. Jude course isn't particularly hilly, only about 700 feet of elevation and descent over the entire course, but the majority of the climbs are from overpasses that have a nice little punch. They pulled away from me on the climb.
In a truly serendipitous moment, I noticed an older runner next to me with a visor that said "BERRYMAN" on it. The 50 miler that I pulled out of was called Berryman. I asked if his hat was from the same race and sure enough, it was! This was particularly crazy because it's a fairly small race - I think only about 100 people do it every year. We chatted for a while and got to know each other. He started running at the age of 50 and was on his 13th year of running. I was blown away by this. At 34 years old I sometimes get worried what running will look like as I get older so I'm thankful I got to witness what's possible. He mentioned that he was aiming more in the 3:10 realm so I figured he and I would be together for a long while. He was a bit more stoic than the Nashville guys and I occasionally wondered if I was annoying him with my chatter. I toned it down a bit and the miles clicked by.
Going into mile 10 we split from the half marathoners - the full marathon course takes us down North Parkway, through some neighborhoods, and looping through Overton Park. The first neighborhood we entered was silent. After all the cheering in the downtown section of the race it was a bit jarring to suddenly feel alone. There were occasional people outside but it really felt like it was just me and my new ultramarathoning friend going out for a tempo run. Another guy joined us at this point - we chatted briefly and formed a little trio.
After we got out of the dead neighborhood, we were back on North Parkway where people were actually at. Mile 11.5 is where my cousin's cheering group was - my girlfriend and a bunch of my family were there to cheer me on. The cousin I ran the 2019 race was also there - I had deemed him my honorary crew chief and he ran next to me for about a minute. I only brought two gels with me and took them at the 30 minute and 1 hour mark. He passed me two more gels and some water and said I looked solid. I told him I had already given up on the sub-3 dream and I excitedly told him that the other guy with me did the Berryman 50. I really enjoyed the placement of my family in the race, it made for a nice emotional battery.
At mile 12 there was a big group of people playing and singing "Your are my sunshine" to the runners. They've done this in years past as well and I keep forgetting how much I love it. It always touches me. I keep forgetting to mention it in my yearly race reports but, with the exception of my family, they're always my favorite cheering section. I hope you're there every year!
Right around the half marathon mark I started slipping for the first time mentally. It dawned on me how much more we have to go and I started to dread the pain that I knew was inevitably around the corner. I pushed the thoughts to the side after a few minutes and felt better. I was still with the ultra guy but we were both in quiet mode now. We split the half marathon point in 1:33 - even with a positive split I could get a 3:10.
Mile 14 began the section of the course through Overton Park. Overton Park is a popular training spot for a lot of people in the area, but I rarely visit it. The gradual uphills on East Parkway and Poplar started to take their toll on me. I was surprised that I was actually having a little bit of issue on these 3% grades. Around mile 15 the ultra guy started to pull away from me. I worked really hard at that moment to not be upset that a 63 year old man was showing me up, but instead be inspired by what a badass he was.
This section is when I started to see just a bit of the carnage that the later half of a marathon can have. I passed my first super fit-looking guy who seemed to have had a blow up and was upset. The first loop through the park was sparse and I was stuck in no man's land, running all by myself. I was starting to feel pretty worked at this point and wasn't looking forward to the second loop for two reasons: not only does having to repeat sections feel bad, but having to deal with constantly passing slower runners was going to be a pain. Near the end of the loop it dawned on me that the leaders may pass by me as they finish their second loop. As I got to the start of the second loop without being passed I drew a bit of confidence off of that - the loop is roughly 4 miles long, so it was nice to know that the top guys were less than 4 miles ahead of me.
As I started my second loop, I discovered that running into a few more people was actually a welcomed change. Getting to constantly pass people, while possibly slowing me down a bit, gave me a huge confidence boost and made the second loop feel much more manageable. I passed a group of women that remarked how much faster I was than them - they didn't know that the loop had to be done twice and I was the bearer of that bad news. Around mile 20 I passed two more familiar faces - first the guy in the starting corral that was looking for 2:50, and shortly after that one of the two guys from Nashville that I was running with early on. At this point I was starting to feel extremely tired, but passing other guys helped me remember that I made the right call by deciding to slow down.
At 21.5 I passed back by my cousin's cheering section as I made my way back to downtown. I was thoroughly riding the pain train at this point. My cousin jumped in again to run with me for a second, passed me another gel, and told me he had been tracking me on the RTRT.me app. He mentioned something about how crazy it was I sped up so much and I was confused but too tired to ask what he meant. After the race I discovered that some of the timing mats in the middle of the race were apparently misplaced. It looks like some of the earlier mats were placed too far down (making it look like everyone was running slower) and later on the mats were placed too far up (making the splits look faster). Looking at my own results on RTRT shows a 15 mile split at an 8:00/mile pace and a 19 mile split at a 6:41 pace. That made it make way more sense to me after the fact because my cousin sounded in awe of me. In reality I had been slowing down slightly but not by a crazy amount. I told him that I was aiming for 3:15 now and as he dropped off he told me that I had it in the bag.
At mile 22 we rejoined the half marathoners. Suddenly I was navigating an absolute sea of people. Doing the out-and-back section of Stonewall was a truly miserable experience. I have no clue what the race organizers were thinking by having the marathon rejoin the half marathon with 4 miles to go. This choice meant that, no matter what your full marathon pace was, you'd be rejoining a group of half marathoners going literally half your pace. I'm all for people of all levels of fitness participating in the race and I'm not trying to shame anyone, but suddenly having to navigate through 3:00-3:30 half marathon walkers was the most aggravating running experience I've had to deal with in a long time. I truly hope that the race organizers realize what an awful feeling that is and avoid it in the future. This was the one sour note of the entire experience and while I don't want to harp on it too much, it really sucked that we had to deal with it for four whole miles.
At the end of the North Parkway section there were banners up on the side of the road showing images of kids when they entered treatment at St. Jude and then another picture after it showing them happy and healthy after treatment. This hit me like a ton of bricks and again reminded me of what's really important. This was a really nice touch and others I've heard from have said the same thing.
At this point I was totally out of it and definitely started phoning it in. I knew I had a PR no matter what and 3:15 just didn't feel worth fighting for. I'm not proud to admit that but it's unfortunately the truth. During this section I got passed by a couple other marathoners but I kept focusing on one guy ahead of me that had blown up a little bit. He'd start walking and I'd pass him, then a few minutes later he'd pass me again and start walking. We passed each other back and forth for about two miles and then he finally didn't pass me again. As we got back to Danny Thomas and climbed another overpass, I began to feel my right hamstring start to lock up on me. Under normal circumstances this would have concerned me, but at the moment I took a bit of relief from it. I was starting to second guess if I had given a solid effort and feeling a muscle start to give up on me was a good indicator that I had.
The last mile went by unceremoniously. I was running on the far outside to get around the sea of walkers and just focused on the fact that I earned a new PR, even if it wasn't what I hoped. The end of the race came in on a slight downhill and I managed to push for the last little bit. I crossed the line officially in 3:17:10 - a 10 minute PR! I feel like I could have hit my B goal of 3:10 if I went out from the start with that time in mind, but I'm glad that I had the maturity to recognize I wasn't going to get sub-3 and readjusted my goal on the fly.
I'll be back next year (hopefully with a new course - seriously race organizers, that was ridiculous) and I'm confident I'll finally get that sub-3 in 2022! Post-Race
Immediately after the race I discovered the consequences of my extremely poor planning. My girlfriend and family couldn't find me and I didn't have my phone to call anyone. I ran into a friend who offered his phone, but I couldn't remember anyone's number. After nearly an hour of walking around, I finally found everyone and got to rest. I had some awful stomach cramps for a few hours after the race but other than that I felt mostly good - just extremely tired. After a nice 10 hour sleep, I'm feeling pretty solid! My legs are plenty sore, but I feel like I'm recovering much better than I used to! Hoping I can get out the door Tuesday or Wednesday for a short jog.
Instead of going the ultra route in 2022, my cousin and I have opted to work on speed. We're looking for a spring 10k or half marathon and then leverage that training into a buildup for St. Jude 2022. Excited for what the future holds!

2021.12.06 00:03 spirit_whsprer r/ParanormalEncounters needs a part-time mod, will become full time
I have an unusual situation here, as I've have branched out my sub, and have 3 subs operating under one banner, basically as one sub with different rooms (I guess that explains it). Our main sub, ParanormalEncounters has just over 67k members, the other three subs have less than 100 each but growing. Really I'm not requiring any experience, just a willingness to learn, and to do a good job. I believe that all mods (right no I'm the only one) should stay in contact so that any decisions are the same no matter who makes them. I want us to be in agreement on whether or not a post is removed, or approved. To do that we need to talk, whether by chat, or by phone, and I'm good with either. So what your comfortable with.
If you happen to know CSS or programing that is great, or if you can learn that is great too. But not necessary. I barely scrape by on the automoderator, and the css, forget about it I can't do it. The one thing I refuse to put up with is someone being rude to someone else. The other rules are kind of suggestions, and as long as people are acting right, I can look the other way on small stuff. But, bullies will be removed with a vengeance.
If your interested, check out the sub, and send me a modmail. I'll get back to you ASAP.
