for years "mods are asleep" has been a joke relic from the forum days but the fediverse brings us to an era where the mods can let you know that they're awake by boosting your "mods are asleep" joke and then you can scold them to go to bed because you know their timezone and this isn't healthy

@KittyUnpretty I especially like the wholesome jokes, like
"mods are asleep, tuck them in and turn it the light"
"mods are asleep, start making them breakfast in bed"


Also, the fediverse is global enough that, even on small instances, it's entirely possible that there *isn't* a time when the mods are (all) asleep. My instance (#fosstodon) only has five mods, but we've got folks in the states (both coasts), the UK, and Asia. So, you'd have to work *really* hard to find a time when we're all asleep!

@KittyUnpretty mods are asleep, get them a blanket and a glass of water for when they wake up

tfw you can't post a mods are asleep meme on your instance because you're the mod

@KittyUnpretty talking about healthy I kept it a secret for a while that I don't have any notifications on my phone, to keep up the fiction that mods always react fast.
