Way to “one-up” Smart there! “Yeah, you had a horrible ordeal – but there were *3* of us! Our foundation is going to be better!”
Or, is it a matter of one caused the other. If so, *checks today’s facebook offerings*, what does that mean for our cats? Will there be *3 times* the amount of cat videos available by the end of the day?
Speaking of people who have been held captive for years – the Week 0 topic is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/649689.html
Just a couple items of note in regard to that. (1) Make sure that the person you want to write about is actually signed up. We’ve had a couple of those already. So, check the Sign Up page if you’re not sure. If they aren’t, well then, it’s the perfect opportunity to convince them to sign up! :D
(2) There was a question of, if two people are using the same account, can they write about each other? The second part of it is “can spouses/SOs/friends write about each other?” That’s a trickier question, because I set guidelines, I don’t make a lot of rules about how someone interprets them. On the first part, I’d prefer that people using one account write about someone with a separate account. The reasons for this actually go into the second part – which is that the intention of this is people getting to know each other. In the first case, that also means that it’s likely that someone else *won’t* end up having someone write about them. Which really sucks. I know that’s not the intent, but that’s the likely result. So, keep that in mind.
(3) Not directly related to the topic, but something that did come up as a result: Make sure that <b>I</b> know if you have another account. I try my best to police the use of multiple accounts to stop people from voting from more than one. So, if I know about it ahead of time, I can make sure no one slips. If I *don’t* know about it in advance, and end up finding out… and voting patterns do tend to show me quite a bit of that kind of thing, then I have to take action… and no one wants their Idol run to end that way! No one else has to know – but I do. So shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and just keep me in the loop!
If you’ve seen the Sign Up page today, we are at the minimum! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/648417.html That said, I’m keeping sign ups open for a few more days! So, if you have been on the fence about participating, now is the time to jump on in!
Also, I randomly assigned all of the sponsorships last night, as a tentative measure. “If nothing else comes in”… kind of thing, and there are 9 people who still need sponsors! So, if anyone wants to help them out, or if you’ve been hanging back and just haven’t sent anything yet, again – now would be a good time!
Oh, and once you have done that, make sure to send me your topic selections!
With all of that out of the way, how is your week going so far?
And Happy kandigurl's birthday to you!
