Congratulations to all of you.
In February, we're going to have a Free-For-All. This means that any story on the site that has never been featured before can be nominated. What are you waiting for? Go nominate something.
It wouldn't be a monthly news post without your moderators nagging you about something.
Please use a spell check before you submit your story to the queue. If your word processor and browser both lack English language spell check, you can always use a free spell check
online. (We don't care if you use British or American spelling, just that you're consistent with which one you use.) Seriously, if there's one thing we shouldn't have to deny stories for, it's spelling because it's the easiest thing to fix.
You're responsible for backing up your work. Websites crash, and computers break. When we deny things from the queue, we delete them completely. We cannot recover them for you. Do yourself a favor and save your work to an online service like Google Docs or Dropbox, save it to to a USB memory stick or a disc, or simply email it to yourself. Your future self will thank you in the event that your regular working files are lost.
And, since January is as good a time as any, here's a list of currently active moderators:
