Scrooge McDuck saying....

Please take a minute and review the rules about banners. They are once again getting too big and it's kind of annoying to always have to go delete them which I just did to a few. We don't want to say no to banners altogether (Well actually i'm lying I would love that in all honesty lol) but if the banners continue to go all ginormous on us, we'll have to do that.

Sorry to be a Scrooge but hey, someone has to be, right? lmao

I hope you don't plan on punishing everyone for the bad choices of a few members. I'm sure that all of the teachers on here know that it's a poor classroom management strategy to punish the whole class for someone one or two students did. It wouldn't be fair to the authors on here that choose to display their themes or artistic representations of their stories through their banners. I do hope that the people that are breaking the rules fix their banners, but please don't make us all suffer. Some of us are really proud of our banners just as much as our stories. :D Thank you for listening and happy holidays!

I am a teacher and know how to manage a great classroom :O)

I guess it doesn't really count that I'm not a teacher, and am instead in the military, and when one person breaks a rule EVERYONE suffers for it... immensely. So I guess we can't all think like teachers! Not that we had any present intentions of changing anything, just so long as there is compliance with the rules.... since we aren't 4 years old after all, and shouldn't need to be coddled.

LOL and just one more thing about classroom management and then i'll hush, but number one rule is once you make a statement you always have to follow through but like Jules said, as long as the rules are followed no one has anything to worry about.

Merry Christmas all!

All right. I'm glad we have nothing to worry about then since most of us are following the rules! Thanks.

hehe y'all are too funny

Can our next rule be about posting stanza after stanza of song lyrics as a "summary"? Scrolling past all of that is just as bad as scrolling past the ginormous banners.

I have been saying that for a loong time now  lol some of the summaries are ridiculously long

I am resisting the temptation to just copy and paste a bunch of song lyrics in this comment right now...

You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way...

We should have a word limit to summaries as well as that banner limit.  how about 15 words? This way you have to be kind of to the point. Nick meets girl, Nick cheats on girl. Girl is sad and goes nutso uh oh lol
- Mare on 12/28/07 02:31 pm
My next summary -- "Read this or they will never see you again." Short, to the point, and "they" leaves things ambiguous so you can't be sure if I mean, friends or family, it covers all bases.
- Julilly on 12/29/07 03:58 am
LMAO Julilly!
- RokofAges75 on 12/29/07 07:05 pm
15 words is a little short, Mare... even that first stanza of IWITW is 16 words.
