Just a heads up—we've turned on the MetaTalk queue for the weekend. The moderators are stretched thin with the recent breaking news posts so MetaTalk posts will be queued instead of posting to the site immediately. That way if a MetaTalk post is about something that a moderator can help with, they can work with the poster without also managing the community discussion. If the MetaTalk post requires community input, they can approve it when there are enough moderators available to help.
We usually do this around holidays when we're short-staffed. This time we're using it due to the extraordinary strain breaking events are having on our staff. You can find a history of our use of the MetaTalk queue here
