Nest Update May 23, 2013 - The Mods Have Landed (Again!)

Good Evening, Fellow HappyChatters!!

It was a Thursday to remember! The eaglets had a fun day on the nest and the mods came back to roost.

Let’s talk about the mods first. As was posted in the Eagle Chat Room MN Bound has decided to again have moderators. They considered all the options and decided that having some mods was an advantage and very helpful to the nest and the chatters in the Social Stream. Going forward the number of mods has been reduced and we will be on when and as we are able. MN Bound wants everyone to enjoy the nest and that includes the mods. We will be here as always to answer questions and hammer trolls to keep the nest the family friendly place it was and will be. Unfortunately because of the reduced number of mods there will be no more formal class sessions in the Social Stream. We really enjoyed them and are sad to see them go. If a class does join us in the Social Stream and there is a mod available we will do everything we can to help answer their questions.

Mods will now choose the time they wish to be on and we will rely on the chatters to stick to our only rule: Be Nice!  If there is troll trouble and one of us don’t happen to be here PLEASE just ignore them and they will go away. Trolls thrive on attention and will leave if you do not answer them. You can also leave us a Private Message in the Chat Room with the name of the troll so we can watch out for and ban them if they show up again.

As a mod and the Blogger I can tell you that I am very happy with MN Bounds decision to bring back some of the mods. We hope you are all happy that the mods are back and that you will continue enjoying the nest with us as you have in the past. 

Well, enough of that and on to the nest doin’s!

I’ll be honest here. I was away most of the day today and did not see a lot of the goings on. When I was able to peek in it looked like a gorgeous sun drenched day on the nest and the kids were getting stuffed with fish all day long. Harmony and Peace are growing up so fast! Mom and Dad seem to catch all the big ones. Hope the fishermen in the area aren’t TOO jealous!

Since I didn’t see much today I will let the pics and vids speak for themselves.

Harmony and Peace dry out in the wonderful sunshine!

Hope your day on the nest was all it could be and we’ll see you there tomorrow!
