what happened to kevan?

Someone seems to have idled him. I don’t see a request anywhere. This is why having “Admins may idle themselves at any time” is dangerous…

looking at the logs, Kevan was indeed the one who idled himself. Its just weird not seeing any sort of announcement of it.

Last time I saw him, he was standing next to the Idling Machine.

Yes, I idled myself, and the rules didn’t require me to make a post anywhere, so I didn’t. Is there a particular “dangerous” situation you had in mind, that could be avoided by requiring the admin to announce the idling in a comment?

Clucky: he/him

eh, given that there is loggin it isn’t actually *that* dangerous because any admin can confirm you actually were the one that went idle. Without it, there is no good way to tell “did this guy want to go idle, or did a rouge admin so something rouge-like”
