Are you here? If you are here, say so!

This is the inaugural DK4 roll call. Leave a comment letting us know that you're here!

Use your username as your comment header. Then include this information:

(1) What Congressional District you are in (or: DC, territory, non-U.S. state or province.)
(2) Where you have gone to school or otherwise learned anything worth learning and what it was.
(3) What sorts of things you are interested in reading about on DKos 4.
(4) Your favorite food or foods.
(5) Where you were when you learned that Mubarek was leaving Egypt.
(6) How you found this diary. Not as in "I found it brilliant," but as in "I found it here."
(7) Any groups you'd like to promote here, while we're reading!

UPDATE, 6:45 a.m. PST. 2/13/11 -- ERRATA AND EXPLANATIONS

The following info is not that important to most readers, so feel welcome to skip it:

(2) I don't care if or where you went to school, but some people asked for this last time.

(5) should be "leaving power in Egypt," as Mubarek remains in Sinai. Nitpickers, one point for you. Would "leaving Cairo" have worked better?

(6) Yes, most people answering 3 hours after the diary was posted will probably have found it on the Rec List -- but at the time the diary was written this was a really useful question to include. If you look through comments, though, you'll see that in the early going it was first found by some through the Recent List, some by Recently Recommended (the "TU-Sifted List"), some by following the author (!), and a few other ways. This is good data as we as a community strive to figure out when and how diaries make it from the Recent List (or the RecRec) into wider viewership, which will become more important as pace of diary publication picks up.

(7) Just a reminder: joining a group is like joining a newspaper staff -- you are taking on an administrative and/or content-generation responsibility. If all you want to do is follow what is written to a group, you just go to the group page -- which you can find by clicking on the group name -- and clicking follow. "Groups" are not groups of readers, but of writers/managers. Followers of a group -- who may (ideally) also become commenters -- are groups of readers.

And with that, I am going back to bed. So long for now!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
