So have you guys read any particularly good entries lately?
I ask that to highlight the backlash against recommendation lists posted along with the "vote for me" posts that some people do.
It's fascinating to see how these things evolve and what a very personal choice that is. How people handle the voting aspect is as important as any other aspect of the game - and this is, as I'm sure most of you have figured out by now, a *very* social game. It's "LJ" Idol for a reason, every little aspect of blogging on Livejournal comes into play and it's how you manage to handle it that brings people out ahead of the curve. At least that's my opinion... of course I'm right.*g*
Anyone looking for an official "yes or no" on suggesting other people - the answer is, it's entirely up to you. I have no problem with people who want to do it. I have no problem with people who don't like it. If it's the same people week after week, well if someone wanted to say that was an alliance, well, would they be wrong?*G*
On a sidenote - but somewhat related - I was having a conversation the other day and someone pointed out all the people they knew in person from their LJ. It got me thinking of here, and wondering, for my own curiosity, how many people actually had met in person. Especially in light of some talk of how there should be some sort of meet-up thing down the road at some point.
So here's my list. It just includes people that I've met in person. All but one I've actually spent some time with, the last one on list being that one that I met during the tour last summer and met at a group meet-up dinner.
(oddly enough they are in order of Tribe, but after looking at the list, it's also in order of "How Long I've known them" from longest to shortest amount of time!)
