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

Hi admin(s),

Are you related to the Admin and Nimda from my favorite game PK XD? Had to ask because Admin from PK XD went missing a few weeks ago...if you have seen him just say so!

I'm not related to any other Admins.

Hi @admins! How's your day going?

Very well, thank you.

I thiiiiink I found the login page? @Admins, tell me if this is it!

What you pictured, SS, isn't the log-in page for Chatterbox. And only people authorized by the company are given usernames with which to log in.

Hi @admins! I'm newer-ish and I was wondering what it means that there's no explicit violence or romance allowed so that I can filter my writing correctly just in case. Like what can we not go beyond in those categories. Thank you!

It's hard for us to be specific because there are so many different kinds of violence and romance, and the context of the story and wording may make a difference. Use your best judgment and if we don't post it, then you've gone too far.

@admins, Okay, can I ask about something specific? Like what about a quick kiss or mention of a physical fight, but neither go into detail about anything specific about those events? That happens in my story. Or should I use less-specific wording anyways? If neither of that is allowed, you can just delete this comment and I will know. Thanks! :)

Probably not the kiss. Mention of a physical fight will probably be OK as long as there are no details. I hope this helps.

Ummmm, @Admins, Ski Lodges are somewhat more violent than fight scenes, don't you think?

Not that I've noticed. Context makes a big difference. While I'm against fighting and violence in general, my main impression of CB Ski Lodges is fun and humor.

Does a space at the end of a CAPTCHA invalidate the answer? All the times I've added a space it hasn't gone through, but I've never known if that's because I got it wrong or the space.


I'd recommend not putting anything in the captcha that's not displayed—no spaces, returns, etc. --admin

Hey @Admin! How many comments do you normally post per day? Like on average, or a range, or if you happen to know exactly how many you posted yesterday? The question just popped into my head a couple of days ago and I was really curious. 

I don't know exactly. Every day can be different. Definintely too many to count! (I do think our webmaster has access to exact traffic, but she's really busy with so many things that I don't want to ask her.) On weekdays, there's one Admin for usual office hours and another one for the evening, so neither one knows how busy the other has been. There's one Admin for weekends, but the amount on any one of those days can vary so much from any other. Just off the top of my head, I'd say I've posted 60 to 80 comments this evening alone.

@Admins, have you noticed the influx of new CBers? I wonder if any of them came from where I mentioned the Chatterbox on a different website (don't worry I didn't reveal that I'm Shining Star).

I haven't noticed more than usual. But remember, there are three of us.

May I ask where you mentioned the CB?

submitted by @Shining Star
(April 27, 2022 - 7:09 am)

Well, I'm probably not allowed to say, since that would technically be personal information (right, Admins?). It was a website for writers, I'll say that. 

We don't allow mention of other sites over which we have no control because we don't want to lead Chatterboxers to anything that may be inappropriate or beyond Chatterbox standards.

Admins, I'm making it my monthly mission to thank you for everything you do! You're so amazing, posting all these comments and keeping us all safe. Thank you so much! <3

P.S. CAPTCHA says "mordi". Than means "hit" in Italian! Are you Italian, Sunny?

Thank you, SS. We appreciate your thoughtfulness.

According to my Italian dictionary, mordi meant bite. . . . ?
