Hey all :) It's that time again! The next round of invites begins today. Some of you have been so patient and I really thank you for that. The workload here lately has been immense with the new system, setting up forums/sub-blogs, figuring out the new moderation system, etc. On top of that I've been very busy with work, healing my dislocated shoulder, etc. So thank you to those who have been kind, understanding, and appreciative during this time.

If you'd like to be added for authorship privileges, please respond to this post. I am not the only one making additions (of course. The entire admin team for GT is on it), so it may go quickly. But since I am currently at work, I probably won't be able to get around to adding people until later in the day. So don't worry if you post and are not giving authorship right away. We have to look through posting histories, check with other admins, and of course keep living our daily lives so it won't be instantaneous. And an add is not guaranteed. While we work with our new moderating tools, it's taking us time to get to know the new system, too. You can report trolls to me when they're on GT, but if they're on the main page please e-mail commenters@jezebel.com

As always, the best way to score an invite is to having generally positive interactions within the community and to post constructively. Authorship is a privilege, not a right, and it can be revoked due to abuse at any time. For now, the forums need to remain smaller to ensure the troll and spam populations are in check. But as time goes on, more and more people will be added. So don't fret if you're not given authorship yet. That means you can keep trying via interacting with the community. As always, I will NOT be responding with whether or not you're in. Just play around later tonight or tomorrow to see (this round won't be completed until tomorrow night and then the next round will follow sometime shortly after).

I know this is one of the toughest, most major overhauls of the system yet. I appreciate your understanding and patience as we all figure it out with you. So start throwing your names in the ring. Looking forward to expanding GT with you all :)
