Yes, works, thx.

Yes, good idea.
Could we wait for a couple of days with that? I think it would be good
to get some experience with the forum, may be
 - one or another question will be answered by then
 - new questions may arise.

I agree to the necessity of good communication between
moderators/admins. I also suggested to have a hidden moderator/admin
forum where all moderators and admins can share their experiences,
discuss certain issues, and even exchange names of users who popped up
in a positive or negative way.
