*mods sidle in, looking a bit sheepish*

So, we've not been around much for the last month -- whoops! We're back now and hoping to get back to regular (slimmed-down) check-in posts. Meanwhile, you guys have been amazing and kept the comm running with some great posts -- thank you!

Housekeeping
Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

As we don't always get the time to pull things out of the suggestions post into their own separate posts, it may be worth checking every week (or tracking the post) to see if there's any new information you're interested in.

Also if you need help with tags, PM [personal profile] redbird, who is our tag guru. Both [personal profile] tassosss and I are very grateful for the help.

I think even mods are allowed to take a break from all of this.

I really never expected things to still be this outrageous for this long. Terrifying and angering, yes, but I thought the WTF factor would slow down over time.

I didn't call my senators because they are Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. I did, however, back a possible Democratic challenger against Ted Cruz, Beto O'Rourke.
