Pastry of the Year
Apr 12, 2013



JacquelineDempsey has graciously accepted an offer to help out in PYF as an IK. I couldn't be happier about this - JD has been around forever and is one of the nicest people I've met on these forums (as well as a talented musician). She's one of those people that seems to know a little bit about everything, which, combined with a genuine sense of curiosity, makes her a perfect fit for PYF staff.

Thanks, JD!

And with that, the tripod is complete: Moon Slayer, JD, and myself. Between the three of us, I think we'll keep the ship righted. Thanks, too, to everyone who's an active participant here: y'all make this one of the best places, on- or offline, to share and discuss, well, everything.

PYF IK: Ruling these lists with my iron fists

Thanks for the warm welcome, Pastry. I'm happy to help! Most of PYF (or the threads I frequent, at least) is pretty dang chill, so I expect most of my duties will be along the lines of "omg shut up with the 3 page derail about pizza/anime/tipping and post Funny Pictures, ya goofs".

I see any blatant racism/sexism/homo- or transphobia, though, and I'm handing out sixers like Halloween candy.

If there's anything I can do to help in my IK capacity, fellow denizens of PYF, my PMs are always open.

(Also, I guess technically I'm an IQ? I like IK better. Kinda like how on BSG everyone was called "sir" regardless of gender. Plus my first name starts with K, so I keep reading it as "Idiot [first name]" and giving myself a sensible chuckle)

'Jacqueline' does not start with a 'K'.

No wonder no-one can find anything in your library.

But... but I thought that's what the kids mean these days when they post "j/k"? Like the two letters are now interchangeable?

Oh lord, what have I done

I like Kacqueline Eempsey, she is cool and I from time-to-time I remember that I forgot to reach out to grab a beer with her and her husband when I was remotely near where she lived and am filled with regret.

If you want to test out that probation button on a real live lurker, I humbly submit my account for a 6er.

Thanks y'all --- I actually test drove my shiny new probation buttons on myself (check my rap sheet), but thanks for offering to be the sacrificial lambs!

I mean, if you really want a sacrificial sixer with a cat picture, I could take a cue from Pastry and give you a picture of one of my kitties. But yeah, figured out how that works, now.

Also, I did not know until now that IK's can do things like change thread titles/edit posts/much more. So If, say, you made a new thread and had an "ooof, what an embarrassing typo" moment in the title, or some other post thing that calls for a clean up on aisle 3, feel free to holler at me and I'll fix it.

Yes! Cat picture probation please. It's the only way to bring joy to my quarantine life.

I would absolutely be in for a cat picture probe, I donít post enough for it to slow me down

Welcome aboard, JD! Glad to have you helping out!

Iíll take a kitty sixer, but only if you also share the secret of how to enter one because Iím too afraid to experiment on myself.

Iím assuming you enter bbcode and not html but :radium:

What does IK/IQ even stand for?
I thought the moderation staff on SA was just mods and admins.

you can put bbcode in between the constituent letters as well because the emoji parser runs first :)
