Many thanks to both of you for your help in getting my mojo to normal. Happy New Year and hope to see you around.

More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

How does a brand new user have any mojo issues needing help?

...my suspicion is that the user was exterminated by the Dalek Kos antispambot before he/she could even post a comment, and couldn't register another username from the same IP address.

the best answer. Thanks for your comment and Happy New Year!

I got the skull and crossbones on my profile page when I signed up. Serendipity said the robot was set to 'grumpy' and that JamesGG below is the likely winner for best explanation.
I kinda like my user name -- I design ads for tourist maps, like magic!
Thanks for your reply.

the punny Wizard of Ads would have been a better choice?
Or Blipverts ;-D

Wizard of Ads the best. I'm going to steal it for my sig line. :)

I understand your fondness for your user name - but it sure is a system challenger (both spambot and human systems). Especially lately. However, we will hopefully all have a good laugh with you in 2017 in an "old timers remember when" thread.
by Catte Nappe on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 05:07:40 PM PST
and luckily patience was a lovely side effect of menopause...but I do like your 'old timers remember when' idea for 2017.

need something like this on New Year's Eve.... We never go anywhere for amateur night.
by Frankenoid on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 05:00:35 PM PST
I'll actually write a real diary this week. And please, tell me what n/t means, if not 'no thanks'?
by AdWizard on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 05:42:20 PM PST
For people who generally keep threads collapsed to headlines, so they know not to expand the comment to see more text.
At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

The name should have been Wizard of Ads in order to appease the robot.
by AdWizard on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 05:58:49 PM PST
I know ELFING is admin. I'm just curious. Thanks and welcome to Daily Kos.

Maybe this will help with some of the local slang and customs:

I had just read about the DK partners & mentors team and saw your name as one of the mentors. Since I'm really into research, those are great resources to study! Thanks again and Happy New Year!

elfling was awesome, if I do say so myself.
by AdWizard on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 05:01:04 PM PST
don't delete my fucking account, kos?

AdWizard's only previous comment was in praise of pooties. That means that a woozle did it. ^_^

AFTER the banning. I was banned from the first sign-in.

Well, I'm glad that my feeble Xena joke is meaningless.
by Mokurai on Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 06:27:14 PM PST
type soothing phrases while you waited for elfling. Can't take credit for being bored and looking at the Help Desk comments.
Welcome, and my you have had all your bad luck here already. ;)

The soothing phrases were most creditworthy... How nice of you to care without prompting! Thanks again for the warm welcome. SJ

with questions about posting pictures. I appreciate those who work behind the scenes and friendly users who step in to help. Helping administer this website is likely a great challenge! I'm sure it's hard enough even without the spam attacks!
Happy New Year!!
