VERY good to see you back here. I know no-one overtly picked up on your comment in Stockholm about modding, but I did. It'll be referred back to when / if the h2g2 Continuum Committee get to thinking about the practicalities of smiley - modding.

In the meantime - how the smiley - devil are you my dear? I've missed you a lot, on and off, over the years.

I'm married (to Z, don't know if you remember him) and am living outside Edinburgh, and am no longer writing poetry, but do still get more involved in how h2g2 OUGHT TO BE RUN than is sane in an otherwise intelligent adult.

Don't be a stranger. If you want to hop onto FB or email, then my addy is in my U-Space.

Hi Mrs Zen,

Very nice to hear from you - I was thinking of you lately as I occasionally peruse h2g2. I only caught this message by logging into the good old alabaster.

Happy to hear you are married. I'm shacked up with a lovely bloke and we just moved into our own place in Tottenham, London.

I see you are business analysing when you're not re-organising h2g2. These days I'm managing Guardian Soulmates, which has just been through a tricky migration and relaunch, which just made it impossible to make time to chip into the hootoo conversation much. I hope you can make a go of it, and I'm happy to help as much as I can. I know a bit more now about online communities than I did back then.

Let me know your news, and all the best,


Ben to Jen

Guardian Soulmates, eh? I met a couple of men on your website.... smiley - smiley

I'd very much like any advice you can give us about communities, moderation, etc. The email addy I'm using for that sort of thing is [email protected]
