I don't understand how the Org needs a setback/thread minimization just because its raison
d'etre has passed away. "Concentrating specifically on The Man" is not the same as concen-
trating on the man's work, the latter being the specific reason why most of us are here: we
love Prince's music and his public presentation as an artist for we can not possibly love him
intimately - none of us knew him when he was off stage.

Yet, he persists because no evil force has deprived us of his music, so Prince is not dead, but
very much still alive. I think the idea of adding on more moderators on a temporary basis is
a good idea as not all people grieve similarly. It may help some posters process their grief
if the Org can return to normalcy. Hell, if any forum needs a reduction in threads, it's the
Prince forum! This should not be viewed as disrespectul towards Prince, but how many threads
should be created where most of the sentiments are so similar?

It's temporary. And with all the new accounts and past members and such, for a short time it's needful for us to be able to focus our moderating in one/two areas.
It could be a real drain to have to deal with P&R forum moderations, when it's still hard and heavy dealing with the stuff in PMM

I understand. I guess most of us don't recognize the hardships that follow being a moderator,
especially with the death of Prince.

It's still strange typing that.

I know, it is.

I mean just trying to keep the PMM forum in order is HUGE right now lol, it's usually not a difficult place to deal with. But it's off the chain right now. We wanna make sure no one is posting in 'alleged' images of Prince dead anywhere
