Why didn't MN accept everyone who applied, not just cherry pick their favourite names?

I got the impression they picked the quietest and the calmest without reference to availability or rota.

All gone now and hidden by the awesome NW.

What is this about?

Some idiot going berserk across dozens of feminism threads.

Glad to hear they did go.

Cherry pick?

The NW volunteers are anonymous - we have no idea what their usernames are. Why do you think that HQ just cherry picked their fave names?

Perhaps OP didn't get picked?

DonkeyOaty Wed 28-Dec-16 09:07:44

Ah. Yes Sparklers, good point.

OP, what say you?

I say that you can never have too many people on Night Watch!

And that I know for a fact cherry picking went on; seems bizarre to me because surely MN would be grateful for any and all volunteers considering it's an unpaid role...

For a fact?

Well they referred to picking sparkling.

I'm not quite clear on what cherry picking involves.
