link={{{imglink}}} This page is no longer active. It is being kept for historical interest.
No discussion is needed to revive this page; simply remove the {{inactive}} tag and bring it up to date.

This page is to establish administrative housecleaning duties. We are all volunteers but it is nice to know who sweeps the floor, does the dishes, makes the beds or takes out the garbage. Without that we tend to wait for someone else to do it. It is also helpful to know what needs tending when a regular is on vacation/holiday, announced or otherwise. For the last while I have been maintaining the rfd page, but there are also other heavily used pages that need this kind of constant attention.

Please take on one; avoid taking on more until you have the work for that one completely under control. Of course these tasks are also open for non-administrators. If you will be away for a time, please mark yourself as "absent" until you return, so that others will know to help out.
