Contest Update Among Other Things

Posted 31 Aug 09

- First off, I know everyone is anticipating the contest results. Jenn and I have already sent in our opinions and we still need to wait for the other mods as far as I'm concerned. Just remain chill and eventually the results will be posted though I cannot say when. - Also, many of you guys have expressed concern about the validation queue. They will be submitted/rejected in due time. It's time for school for all of us and time is limited and school/real life will often overshadow online duties. - Which brings me to my final point, I (lustandthrill) am taking a momentary leave from modly duties here at Twilight Archives. Some may know that I'm a college sophomore at a very fast-paced liberal arts school and I need to focus all my attention on my schooling right now. No, we are not looking for mods as a replacement so don't hassle Kaiwynn about that either. I very much will miss this site. To end this, I wish those who submitted for the contest the best of luck and for the rest, a happy new school year. -Gabby

I think it is fair to everyone to say that we can't just go to school come home and expect that no one else didn't. We should all just calm down a little and except that we aren't the only one who have to do something. You will be missed.

I agree with Loch Ness Werewolf. Let's keep in mind that the mods/validators have lives, and it could definitely be worse for all of us. :) Good luck, everyone, in school and with writing. Gabby, we'll all miss you! :)

Thanks for posting this, Gabby. You will be greatly missed :)

And as for the new mods situation, she is right. Though the queue may have been backed up for a week, that was just because school was just starting and we had to get into the swing of things. But I know that know, for at least me personally, I am well situated and able to get back to my modly duties whenever I'm not actually in the school building.

Never fear -- Your stories will get validated as long as the follow the rules!

Thank you for the notice, Gabby. I totally understand all the mods, please don't feel like you have to be here every free minute you've got. Life goes first :) I'm just glad to hear you're still up and breathing. And good luck, Gabby! We'll miss you.

I also agree with Tundra. I've noticed that the first thing some people do is get right on the site. No offence to everybody, but why don't we all sit down and read twilight or something else again. With school starting our first priority should be homework, being stress free, and calming down. In due time, everything will be back to normal.

I agree with Loch Ness Werewolf. I've already had to write three papers within the first week of my junior year in high school. Which means that I'll have to read something other than this web site. I just don't have time for anything anymore. We'll miss you Gabby!!!! Come back soon!

I agree with everyone above me. lol. This being my senior year in high school, i am more occupied in finding a college to apply to by fall. Writting resume's a cover letters. Reading AP books demanded by my English Teacher. Memorizing anatomy...stuff. Studying to get my EMT certification! AHH! it's nuts, i just don't have the time i did over summer to sit down and write for my fics. I thought i had gotten use to it but school is unpredictable, so for a while people should just chill, the writers on this site have no abandoned you. We do have lives outside of this website.

Yes, school is back in session-or will be by the end of next week for probably everybody. Yes, writers will be busy because of it. And yes, mods will be too. thats to be expected. After seeing now 3 back to school periods for TA's members, its always the same every year. things will get back to normal, perhaps a bit slower than summer, eventually. Once we all adjust again. (and i've taken this time in the summer to write as much as possible so that i have almost endless chapters to post while im too busy to write-so no worries). Even though i do realize this, i'm of course still curious like the rest of us for the winners. We've waited this long, whats a few more weeks ;) Good luck at school this year everyone-and for those of you who are out of school....good luck anyway ;)

okay i figured out the 'rn' thing in responding to reviews! the 'rn' goes in place of where you hit 'enter'. thats where it has been happening to me...so is there a way to fix that?

ummm...you could write "not rn". yep. that'll work...according to my not real logic. yeppppp.... =]

Sigh. This is the longest wait ever. Oh well, take your time... haha, I'm just being impatient. GOOO MODS! (In case you needed a little cheer-on)
