Hey yall! Reply to this thread if you’d like to be the new waiting listkeeper. Generally we ask fellow waiting bees, and there is some lore I just found out about the listkeeper getting engaged– just that it happens frequently 🙂 I’m starting to believe it because Sapphire_Dreamer was the temporary listkeeper before me and we both got engaged in the last 2 weeks!
To be the listkeeper you have to watch out for PM’s and replies to the waiting list from people who want to be added. Also you have to write cute little blurbs when people get engaged. (I like to link to their proposal story pages). So it’s best to be the kind of person who reads the boards a lot, because not everyone is going to PM you and say “I got engaged.” Lastly, you get to pick out the week’s waiting food, drink and nail polish!
Sorry it took so long to write this thread, I am super thrilled to be engaged and also pretty busy at work 🙂
Please reply to this thread, don’t PM me, I want this to be an open process that everyone can see!

@fingerscrossed: I looked back and found when BoPeep was looking for someone to take over. She had them write proposals (ahem) to be listkeeper and it was put to a vote.
Here is the link
Would you like to be the next waiting list keeper?

Well the official “rule” on the matter is that the previous listkeeper chooses the new listkeeper! In the past we’ve had the volunteers write up a proposal blurb for the previous listkeeper’s proposal, and the PM it to the previous listkeeper who then posts them with a poll and whichever has the most votes determines who the new listkeeper is!
