    Congrats, John! If you need any help, just let me know. There are a LOT of tools at your disposal now, not all of them obvious, but most of them are very useful. – jrista Apr 3 '13 at 0:20

    @jrista - Need any help?!? Now that's an understatement! I'm just exploring and trying not to break anything right now... – John Cavan Apr 3 '13 at 0:28
  • Check out the custom content area. That is where we manage the PotW on the header. I usually take care of that, every Tuesday night (tonight, actually). Sometimes I miss it, though, and the winners usually don't like that as it cuts into their time on the header. Just keep an eye out on that, and if it isn't updated by Wednesday morning, it would be great if you could fill in for me. – jrista Apr 3 '13 at 0:31

    Oh, and don't forget...your votes are now BINDING and INSTANTANEOUS! Don't vote unless you really have to. I usually wait for someone to flag before I do anything...outside of that, I let the community moderate itself. If I get a flag, my general M.O. is to add a "post notice", or comment, and give the member who questioned or answered a couple days to take action on their own before I make any binding action,. – jrista Apr 3 '13 at 0:33
  • Good advice. I did find the PotW header item, so I'll keep a watch. You can also let me know ahead of time too, I don't mind. What time is usually? Like midnight (EST for me) or a little earlier? – John Cavan Apr 3 '13 at 0:47
  • I try to do it before I go to bed, which is usually a couple of hours before midnight MST. It doesn't have to be exact...I think the general rule of thumb is that the header is updated by the morning of the next day. – jrista Apr 3 '13 at 2:30
  • Cool, my morning is a bit earlier than you, so if it's not up by 6:30am EST, I'll do it (assuming I have Internet access). – John Cavan Apr 3 '13 at 2:46
  • Oh, and I'll probably bork it the first time... :p – John Cavan Apr 3 '13 at 3:05
