Especially with the new hires, it's getting a little harder for me to distinguish moderator comments. Sometimes there are typographical hints like small text or square brackets, but not always; sometimes the tone makes it apparent, but again, not always. What do people think about somehow marking moderator comments? This could be either automatic (like moderators get little tags appended to their usernames) or manual (moderators identify themselves when speaking as such); we can beanplate the details to any length. I just want to be less uncertain when I am and am not reading moderator comments.

It's episode 61 of the podcast! We chat with new weekend moderator restless_nomad for twenty minutes or so up front, about moderation and video games and green vegetables; and then we ramble on for about a normal podcast's worth of chatter after that, so this comes in at a beefy 90 minutes or so.

Lacking confidence, I will not call this a pony. It's just a suggestion: how about setting that optionally removes moderators from the "contact activity" sidebar? I adore jessamyn, and many of her answers deserve to be favorites/best answers, but due to her high-profile here, my list has become a digest of jessamyn's activity, which crowds out all my other contacts. (This only affects people who have moderators as contacts.)

what's the policy for/function of an anon question? i've been using metafilter for awhile, but have never used it. since isaw about seven anon questions in a row, i'm curious: how long do they usually get to take approved? as i understand it, they are hand-screened? so, is it a few days...a week? and, do they count towards your question of the week (they have to, it would be too easily abusable, i guess...just one of the sentences in the explanation seems to mean that).
sorry for the confusion -_- just one of those things i never quite got around to figuring out.

This thread sucks
. The link doesn't jump down to the story, the subject matter isn't very funny or interesting, it's just stupid. The post is too long, the comments are pretty pointless. I would delete it, but it could create more trouble than it is worth. What should be done about sub-par links? Anything? Take the good with the bad?
