Hi, all! My name is Mandy. I'm a wacky/weird spider fanatic who loves this site. I am pretty sure that I have had some sort of comment conversation with some of you, but not all. So I thought I would say hi and mention that my 'area' is spiders, though I am no certified expert and there is MUCH that I do not know. I am very excited to have just been given the honor of editorship. However, I am hesitant to use it yet and feel I should shadow you awesome people a little longer so I don't make any silly mistakes. John VanDyk made sure to leave a link to the 'help' tab in the "you're an editor now" email...which yes, is very helpful and necessary, but I thought there MUST be more than that for the editors. I mean, you all are so in sync and great at what you do, so where is the master list of editor do's & don'ts? Besides introducing myself, that is the reason for this forum post. I beg of you to bestow your wisdom upon me! Please tell me your pet peeves and any tips that I may need as an editor. Basically the DO's & DON'Ts would be perfect. And should I expect any hazing or... ;)
