According to this meta question on Philosophy, it seems that we are slow on replying requests from mods of other sites. Is this correct?

    I always try to respond to summoning in chats. In this case, I haven't seen their request. I'll try to find out what happened. Many thanks for bringing this up. I've placed comments to the mod's answers over on Phil.

  • hmm, I thought that there is a special channel between mods to discuss migrations. Pinging individual mods seems ineffective for me.

  • That said, I feel in case of no response an actual migration is still to be preferred. Asking for migration is etiquette, not mandatory anymore.

  • Ooker - there is indeed - it is a [closed] chat room.

Short answer
No we are not - you assumed we (i.e., the mod team of Psych&Neurosci) were contacted, and we were not.

I commented in your linked Phil Meta post:

AliceD - My apologies for our unresponsiveness. I pretty much always respond to summons in the teacher's lounge - but this question was not brought t[o] my attention. There are three other mods on Psych&Neurosci and I doubt all of us decided not to react, and again, I haven't seen any summons on this Q. How did the mod team from Philosophy try to contact us?

One of the mods over at Phil responded with

- Unintentionally I failed to respond to the request for migration. I take full responsibility for this. I have as you will have seen apologised to the OP and suggested how to put the situation right. In future I will follow the inter-mod procedures. Best -


I apologise that I did not contact. My assumption was that the questioner would her/ himself apply to Psy with the question without my going through a mediation process. I now understand the procedures and the problem will not happen again. I don't suggest and never have suggested that Psy did not respond to a contact. Best ####

I conclude that you assumed we were contacted, and we were not. While we mods are of course brilliant, even we cannot respond to a request that has never been made ;-)

  • That last part :D
