Chatterbox: In This Month's Issue

Admins Question Thread

Admins Question Thread

Pretty self-explanatory, for when you have a question for the Admins.

I was looking through the Ultimate Guide to the CB, and it says people ask the admins questions "frequently related to blue moon ice cream."

What does that mean? 

One of the older admins told a story about Blue Moon ice cream a while back and it became something of a meme: --admin

Cool! I have a question for Admins, if you don't mind me asking: How many Admins are there? Thanks!

How do you sign up to become an Admin? Is there a process?

And what does the Chatterbox look like to you guys? 

Being an Admin is just part of our responsibilities as employees of Cricket Media. We all applied for positions in the editorial department when they were open. We see submitted comments one at a time to review and post them. We are able to view all of Chatterbox posted threads as you do, too.

Do all of the admins have a different way of talking in comments? Also, what is the most fun thread to get comments from?


All of the admin's replies will look like this, but we sometimes have different ways of signing off. My favorite comments to read are when you all share your writing! - Admin

What was the funniest comment you ever read?

Oh, I can't remember any specific comment right now, but I do sometimes laugh out loud to myself when I read a comment.

If you don't mind my asking, why don't you go by Admin 1, 2, 3 or things like that?

We're interchangeable, each of us just Admin.

Do you get annoyed when I ask a bunch of stuff? Like when I keep asking you to change stuff?

No, I don't get annoyed. I like to answer questions within CB guidelines and be helpful. Plus there are three of us, so the requested changes get spread out, don't all come to the same Admin.

Good. I feel like I have been asking a lot of stuff from you. I was worrying that I was annoying you.

Admins, do you watch anime or read any manga?

No, I don't. I don't watch a lot of TV or movies, but I do read a lot.


I read a lot of comics, and some manga gets in there too. Some of my favorite comics are the Bone series, Space Dumplins, Princess Jellyfish, and Yotsuba&! --admin

I think you have to address them in the post you ask the question, because if you don't, they won't know the context and asume you're asking someone else.


@admin, do you have another job other than being an admin/working for Cricket? 

Not another paying job, but I volunteer a lot of time working for two nonprofit groups. And I do a lot of other things for Cricket Media besides administering Chatterbox.
