Green Room - Week 27 - Day 7

Good morning.

Before we do anything else - let's say hello to everyone who is coming out to support our contestants! Thank you! I know they appreciate it!

"Support them where" you ask? !!

We also have the Free Topic up. I've been really impressed with what I've seen so far, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that I was hoping for more! ;) Who needs a dozen or so roses when you can present the same number of creative endeavors! :) (she appreciates writing much more than she does gifts of flowers actually. . . )


Now for the "meta of the day". Well, less of a feature and more of what is on my mind.

I've had this discussion with a couple people over the course of as many days, so I would be remiss if I didn't bring it out here for everyone. Not that you don't know it - or should, given that it's been mentioned a few times before. Plus LJ itself announced it, and was met with a ton of resistance.

Sometimes people have family and friends who do not have Livejournals - but want to come out and support them. I love this. You love this. Everyone loves this. Quite frankly some of us are kind of jealous of that sort of thing. :)
"Support? From "family"? - what's that? ;)

I've always been rather leniant on "if someone lets me know" which account is which, that I would just keep an eye on it so it didn't get out of hand. It still hasn't, but. . it has got me to thinking. . .

LJ has been allowing people to log in via their facebook accounts (and other Open ID). There should be a button to do so on your log in screen.

If LJ allows it, we're part of LJ, so it's going to happen. I wasn't sure how I felt about the security issues, and if we were going to be overwhelmed, but so far this season only a couple people have voted from their FB. About the same that have done that from Open ID accounts.

Again, if it gets out of hand, I will have to come up with something. (or rather, I'd have to implement it) Don't make me do that. Please. I like being "evil" rather than "that bastard"!;)

Everyone left in the competition is an adult. I think that you can act like adults. I suspect so can your friends and family. It would be a shame, at this point in the competition, if that turned out not to be true. . . especially since the winner doesn't get to play anymore! I've always hoped that was enough incentive for people not to act ridiculous! :)

As long as you don't abuse it, that is another way to promote your work and expand the audience/potential voters.
