This is a beautiful timeline, but I always thought of the AWC as more chartreuse. And the fonts are awful, obviously.ReplyDelete
Ya know, I worked really hard on the fonts, to make them look so bad. The only thing harder was making the graphics so unbearable. I'm glad somebody noticed.Delete
During which of those months was the moderator mostly drunk?ReplyDelete
Those are the ones indicated by three letter abbreviations.Delete
Hi "Crystal," has anyone guessed which longtime community member you are? I'm so grateful you came to the aid after Kimmie's blog got shouted down by the same kind of bullshit every female mod has had to face. Ridiculous in 2016, but who am I, just an academic looking on.ReplyDelete
I love this little posting. What a LOT of months, and I'm so happy to have been involved for so long. The "new" version is different, of course, but as Ben said elsewhere, a lot of what works best is the comments. I'm always happy when I see a familiar name pop up - like Eating Low Salt!!! - but what great new correspondents you have as well.
Good luck, everyone!
I have a guess as to who Crystal is, but I'm not saying. I think the idea of separating the two identities was a good one (and am grateful, indeed, that so far the moderator's identifying as female has not caused what are, indeed, all-too-common problems -- or at least, if it has, we haven't heard about it).Delete
I love you Cassandra. AndAnd, you haven't heard about it.Delete

In the middle of March, 2015, CM closed and then reopened. Does it count that the lights were off for "only" a day or two? My heart seems to think it does.Delete
There were 3 postings on March 18 and then 7 on March 19. There was a 7 hour period after Terry's posting before I took the page over again.Delete
Effectively, every time the mods go to sleep the page is closed! This changes everything!Delete
Thanks for taking it over so quickly, Fab, after the Big Reveal.Delete
Around that time, the dates on the headers were not displaying properly (I recall snapping a screen with April 1 on it), so I didn't trust my current read of the historical record.
The lights were off for only 7 hours. A very long 7 hours.
Terry did post it with an April 1 date, as our history with April Fool's Day is quite long-lived. Also, any of us who have known Terry knew it was 40% gag. We did not know he was planning on stopping moderation, though he was very helpful in leaving the key to the compound in that hide-a-rock after he bailed.Delete
