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

Hi Admin, I was wondering what is looked for when reviewing stories/poems to publish in the Cricket magazine (both for the childrens' contests and the illustrated stories that make up most of the magazine)?

For Cricket League contests, we consider the quality of the writing, how well it develops the theme of the contest, and creativity. For the magazine, we consider well written fiction and nonfiction, stories and articles that would be of interest to Cricket readers.

@Admins, what date do you have to submit a cricket subscription form to recieve the Febuary issue? It's too late already, isn't it? 

Ooh. Good idea for a line there. DASH -->


When you order a subscription, we usually say it may take 6 or more weeks for the first issue to arrive. That's because addresses have to be selected in advance of the printing and we can't guarantee the speed of the mail system. So right now that would be April. You can, however, order single issues at Right now it has January 2022 under "most recent," but I think it should change to February any day now. Single back issues are available, too. Or you can call

1 800 821 0115 and place your request via phone.

Thank you.

I have a list of questions for you:


Are you the ones who answer the phone?


Are you the ones who review contest entries and submissions for the magazine?


Are you the ones who review letters for the letterbox?



Shining Star 

Admins do not answer office or customer service phone calls. One of us reviews contest entries and Letterbox letters, and others may review submissions for the magazine.

Hi Admin!  I hope you are having a great day.  I was wondering if Cricket still sells posters of each magazine cover art, and if so where I could purchase it?


Hi Peregrine. I am having a lovely, snowy day. Unfortunately, Cricket no longer is selling posters of magazine cover art. - Admin

Thank you!  I will have to find a way to frame the issues with my favorite cover art instead of the poster.  Stay warm.


That is a great idea! - Admin

Hey Admin! Just wanted to see how you were doing. What's up? Anything I can do to make your job easier? I think about you whenever i post my comments and try to make sure you don't have to edit stuff or worry about stuff in my comments.

Aw, how nice of you. We're all doing well. We don't mind reading long comments or editing comments to be within the CB's rules—that's our job! --admin

@admins, kinda a personal question but how old are yall? It's okay if u don't wanna answer. 

@admins are any of u queer? Again, if u don't wanna answer that's chill. Just cuz chatterbox is kinda a queer community.
We're supposed to remain anonymously in the background, so we won't answer these questions. FYI, I could only answer for myself anyway, but I won't. I don't have this information about the others. All I do know is that we all love good stories, poetry, and art!

Dear Admin,

I have at least 20 questions! I will only ask 1 for now. And:

What is your favorite movie? You can answer  as slowly or as quickly as you want!

It's Shining Star.


@Admins, when I go to the admins place on the website (I like to look at what it looks like on your side, even if it's ACCES DENIED), I don't see anywhere to like sign do you do that? :o Just curious. I was wondering if it was like the webmaster had to add you from their side or something. 


Also Ayles you have to tag them in your comment like this:


@Admins, what is your favorite movie? 


We navigate to a seperate log in page and sign in as an admin. And I love many movies, but one of my favorites is Singin in the Rain! - Admin

Hi Admin! I have been looking for complete Ski Lodges but I can only find abandoned unfinished ones. Do you have a link to a complete Ski Lodge?

I'm sorry, I don't have such a link. Maybe another Chatterboxer can help you find them.
