okay, noted Mare... I just won't break the rules so you click on my profile... not that I think my summaries are too large.

LOL I love this. Don't make Mare angry lest she scours your profile for possible broken rules! :P

Wow...that was a lot harder than I thought. Trying to change summaries for stories like LATB and Protection proved to be very challenging... they've been up for years and anything I changed sounded funny...so I just did a bunch of deleting.

I got all my summaries down to 3 sentences or less...except one has 4, but it doesn't have a banner. Sorry.

You get more typed space when you don't have a banner anyway :) You're actually under the requirement!

Yes, do not make Mare angry. You will not like Mare when she's angry! lol I say that to my students all the time, minus the Mare part.

We will be leaving friendly reminders for some of you about the summary rule starting today on the form of a review, if we both read them and feel like they need to be shortened.

Again, thanks for following the rules :)

For you, an example of what not to do for a summary/banner.

LMAO The only thing more epic than that banner is the summary below it.  Never gets old!

I used to use banners on everything until I realized how long they took to load for myself and others on slower computers.

Since plaigerism has once again popped up, sadly, I wanted you to be aware it is also considered plaigerism if you steal from tv shows, movies or books word for word. The same rules apply but obviously it's harder to prove. If you do borrow a plot from a Grey's Anatomy or Titanic or whatever, you should give that show or movie credit. What you should NOT do is steal entire plots word for word. That is just as bad as what this AJ person did.

I can't believe we're having this problem again.

This page does a good job summarizing what is considered plagiarism:

Seriously, again?

I mean taking inspiration from something and putting a new spin is one thing... stealing dialogue word for word? Major fail.
