nezchan is listed as the mod. I'm not a mod, I just thought this would be a good thing to have. I'm hoping that our mod will create tags (any user can tag any post, but only the mod(s) can create new tags) and link to this post from the community's profile.

While I'm at it, would you be interested in co-modding? I wouldn't mind a second pair of eyes to keep an eye on the place.

Sure, I'd be happy to. I'd sure love to get those tags created if nothing else! ;)
