Moderating the family room

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

You may not know that the Family Room has its own moderator, just as it has its own community of users and a feel that is perhaps slightly different from some of the other areas of the Forum.

To be honest, moderating the family room is a fairly low-intervention matter. Other than moving threads to the right section, it's generally a polite place, and (with the odd exception when trolls wander in) does not need much moderating. But I have asked Admin to provide me with a login so that I can message people when I need to moderate their posts for any reason, as I feel more comfortable explaining interventions where possible.

Since I'll therefore occasionally be posting to explain what I've been up to, I thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself and say hello to the family room community. I'd welcome any comments on the board, and how it feels to you. My perception is that the family room is a fairly laid-back and welcoming place, where advice sought and given is supportive and constructive. My feeling is that some of the more, erm, vigorous exchanges of ideas that happen regularly in the other EDF boards might not work so well in this room, where topics are often very personal and sensitive, and I have very occasionally removed messages that I felt would upset people. In future, if I do so I intend to add a note to explain why - however, as I said I anticipate it will be rare.

So you won't see a huge number of posts from me, but I wanted you all to know that there is a specific moderator for this room, and that if you have any questions or comments you can direct them to me by post or by PM.

Ha - FRM, further to EDMummy's post on another thread.....can you get in here with some cakes, biscuits and cups of tea please ...think everyone is a bit overtired and hormonal at the moment........maybe we jinxed the room by saying about how friendly it is etc. etc.

    • Is your objection to the spelling of through, or to the whole phrase (which I think is useful)?
    • Might it be a good idea to contact the Royal Opera House, if Robin Lee appears to work there? He probably won't see a post on here?
    • Would recommend Hussein. He’s done a cracking job on three of our rooms and we’ve booked him to do two more. He’s polite, hard working and turns up on time. He also gave us some good advice about finishes and options. He communicates clearly, so you know what’s happening and he was competitively priced. Looking forward to him working his magic on our next two rooms. Thanks Hussein!! 
    • Crikey. Well as I was inside the house,  I only saw it through the glass in my front door, so probably it wasn't strictly "ball lightning" as such. It certainly wasn't moving about!  And if it struck Alleyn's, it can't have been in two places at once. But as I said, it "looked like" there was a huge ball of light outside in the road. I was very glad I wasn't standing outside, put it like that 😂 My partner heard the bang in Surrey Quays!
