Yep. All the moderators are here. It's just that we are constantly feeling it as more of an obligation to come on here, because there's been almost constant spammer posts that we get to deal with everytime we log on. Plus, not many others are posting actual discussions on here.
:D

We actually get a daily income of about 5 - 15 new posts a day. However, around 90% of the posts we get are either spammers (who get disapproved and banned anyway) or odd but seemingly legit/on-topic posts by drive-and-run posters (which we may approve but keep an eye on as some spammers now try to post legitimit posts but edit them much later to sneak in their spam).

Most of the still-active posters here are moderators or administrators.

Yes. Most times I don't even post, just come on here and delete spam.

I was recently out of the country for about two weeks and was kinda preoccupied with, among other things, sight seeing. But, I'm back now :)

Age was kinda a MacGuffin in Nyufrost's departure. She was deadmin'd and never came back after that. The reasons for her deadmining are complicated and are kinda of a personal nature.

Guess i'll never find out the reason.. :/. Eh, it was just a curiosity since she was really nice to everyone and then she just suddenly disappeared. In other news, I feel pretty awesome to know that Terrafrost is part of the development team of a site i use daily. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Unfortunately, for the past two months or so (or maybe three - I've lost count), I've been really distracted by this horrid project at work, so my contributions are not what I'd like them to be, as of late. Actually, my attentiveness to FJ has really slid, as well, thanks to this. For example, I'd, normally have replied to this the day you posted it instead of a week later... :s

umm..I think I´m kinda back at the moment (if somehow still remembers me :lol )

Yup - I still do :)

Yeah - being a staff member used to be mostly a status symbol. Now it's actually work, heh.

It's like... I'd love to be an admin at wikipedia, 'cause of the status that'd go with it, but they'd want me to work and I'm quite content with the time
