Quick announcement to let you know we've brought on a new part-timer to help us out on the weekends, restless_nomad
. She's sane, sensible and actually has mod experience from before MeFi. She'll be helping out Friday nights through Sunday nights and you might see her name on contact form replies or weekend spammer banninations.

As the site's gotten bigger, having three full-time mods with partial attention who travel a fair amount hasn't been cutting it on the weekends. We wanted to make sure there's someone around to put out fires and respond to questions in the same timely manner as during the week. She'll also be helping with housekeeping stuff like keeping the FAQ up to date and chitchatting in MetaTalk.
We'll all still be around and working with restless_nomad of course, but wanted to give folks a heads up that there will be a new face in Mod Town on the weekends. pb and mathowie worked to make the Midnight Mod toolset a bit fuller featured so we'd have more options for people pitching in when we were all away (this always comes up around SXSW time) and now vacapinta has a Midnight Mod associate with, um, different hours.
Questions or comments, please feel free to bring them here. Welcome and thanks, restless_nomad.
