    Ask the mods a question

    We've had ummah interviews, but what about mod interviews?

    Just for fun, so be nice, ask the mods some questions and get a response. Are you curious about who is the youngest? Whether samin really is that grumpy, or if sajid ever thinks about shutting the forum down and going into an early retirement?

    Ask away!


    .....and hopefully you get an answer.

    PS. Would you rather have a open thread like this for q&a or an interview style where each mod gets their own thread?
    مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

    "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
    It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."
    Surah al-Baqarah
    [2:245]

    .:. Perfer et Obdura : Dolor Hic Tibi Proderit Olim .:.
    Be patient and strong : someday this pain will be useful to you

    Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah - that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.

    Re: Ask the mods a question

    this isn't a question but I think the moderation is getting a bit too rigid and that there are too many sections. my suggestion would be that if the admin ever decide to upgrade to go back to the previous way it was. e.g. there's no reason to have a health section separate from lifestyle. Also there no reason to take threads down to the void only to lock them anyway.

    This is what I was going to say. The Void is becoming a dumping ground for locked threads. Wasn't the Void originally created as an alternative to simply locking threads?

    Could be anything really.

    actually

    I am always very curious about you Abd abdullaah

    I don't know enough about you

    all I know is you have that Birmingham accent

    I can't imagine you saying 'I juice don noe' but there is always UF radio, so maybe one day

    the question would have been how strong is your accent

    but the truth is, I don't really care.

    lol any question ive asked the mods never gets a response, idk if the qs are too personal, but then the mods would surely say that..
    Lol I'll try one more time, but like the prior attempts, doubt I'll get an answer.. which makes this thread super applicable..lol, of course its a mods personal desicion if they wanna answer/not, but they seem like regular qs.. if sumone can tag them for me that would be great, I'm tired so prolly won't end up @ing the right person lol

    I have a mixed background [ like more Indo-Burmese, ethnically] and AA does not have 4 wives. Hope that puts a rest to those nosy Qs.

    Re: Ask the mods a question

    What is the purpose of this thread? Honestly.. I thought it was to ask mods questions but my questions above were classed as 'nosy' by the mod.. Sorry but I'm really confused. If it's a personal qs/you don't want to answer.. why not just say that.. that way I won't keep asking a qs that I assume you have missed otherwise.. Answer in a good manner or what even is the point of answering at all.. or maybe I'm misunderstanding the word 'nosy' in this context.. An ethnicity isn't normally top secret.. And my other qs I asked because I thought he had said it on the shoutbox ages ago.. Anyway, atleast I know which mods are okay with answering questions and which ones aren't.. would be interesting to know what was edited out too. Sorry this isn't to all the mods of course.. Sajid, Pippin and Meriadoc.. u three in particular and others are amazing, Allahumma Baarik.

    Edited in: Forgive me if im misunderstanding, maybe its not normal for ones feelings to be hurt over this.. but then again I would never call someone nosy or speak to them in a manner that I would not wish to be spoken to..

    Re: Ask the mods a question

    The op says 'we've had ummah interviews, now its time for mod interviews'.. As far as I remember, the prior uf interviews were about them as individuals.. not their personality on uf.. not that the two are mutually exclusive..

    Thw first qs pippin gives as an example in the op.. which mod is the youngest.. that seems like a pretty personal irl qs as opposed to ones personality on uf. It doesnt specify that its related to the forum, and that thought never crossed my mind..

    Looking at some of the qs asked in the thread, I'm not the only one hu thought this.. op is a bit ambigious, perhaps I am wrong upon reflection.. and pippin can clarify @Pippin1376

    Anyway, even if this thread is just to do with forum personality (which as far as I can see isn't made super clear in the op and ppls responses), if you don't want to answer a question...pls pls pls feel free to say 'it's personal I would rather not answer' etc.. rather than assuming that the other person is 'nosy'. I mean how can ppl even be so quick to judge each other on the net.. nosy isn't a nice term and its making a negative assumption about me based on some random qs that I'm asking.. You don't know me and im sure if you did, you would realise that I am the last person that would be associated with being 'nosy'.

    Re: Ask the mods a question

    I do think you may have misunderstood- didn't call you nosy but your Qs did appear to be exactly that the way I look at this. From what I recall, you must have asked these same Qs 3 or 4 times already [and I either got distracted before and couldn't respond and/or I simply forgot,I am not the most active member at times].

    These are random but personal Qs and not everybody may want to disclose personal info, however trivial it may appear to others, it's just down to the person..really. Like I said, you asked these Qs before a few times already and you didn't get a response but you kept on asking them again..and again..anyway, tell me please what other word other than nosy applies here then? Repetitive, maybe..

    Re: Ask the mods a question

    Only just saw this message now, I will refrain from posting my thoughts/reply on what you said since this seems to be a pointless back and forth, getting nowhere, since it's Ramadhan and the last 10 days, I don't want to respond to a message calling me nosy and/or repetitive.. I should have reminded myself not to frequent uf or allow strangers on an online forum to hurt ones feelings.. May Allah s.w.t protect me from being those traits that you associated me with. Ameen. Please forgive me if I have said anything in a manner that is rude/blunt/hurtful, I should also watch my tongue for fear of hurting people's feelings or saying something that is unpleasant on here.
    Insha Allah you have a good remainder of Ramadhan and Eid. Salaams.
