The Doldrums

Salutations my Patient Archive Members!

Sorry for the slowness in validation -- I'm a bit M.I.A these days because of the end of semester coursework. I've got a crunch of projects due right now, and then finals start the 1st of December for me.

So just a heads up, if things take a while to go through the pipes, I'm a little out of action, and I'm sure the rest of my fellow mods are quite busy as well.

lol, fellow duck here :) just wanted to say Happy Halloween :) i got into the holiday by carving a vampire pumpkin, dressing up, handing out candy, and watch the best halloween movie of all time-hocus pocus- with my friend, who happens to be a member of TA too ;) okay i also wanted to say that because you were reminding us about rules-and even though this isn't a rule-on the forums i sort of wrote this thing on Good and Bad Summaries. it's pretty much becoming a problem on the site with writing a summary for your story, so it explains what not and what to do. go check it out if you think it will help :) http://www.twilightarchives.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=89

alice, you're amazing. i carved my pumpkin as "Carol" from Where the Wild Things are, and then went to a party as a Wild Thing. (no, i'm not fixated at all >_>) My friend was a vampire though, she looked amazing! No sparkles though xD

haha thanks ;) aw that sounds so fun! i was a vamp for the last two years so i thought a witch was a change for me lol one girl in my school (on friday you could wear your costume to the high school) dressed up as max from where the wild things are-she had on a gray hoodie and made a crown. i thought it was funny. lol did you know you can get 'vampire sparkles' at Hot Topic?? they've made just about everything

>.< i'm angry at Hot Topic. I payed eight dollars for a pair of crap tights that don't hold their shape the way EIGHT DOLLAR TIGHTS SHOULD! If i'm going to actually spend more than five dollars on tights, I except them to be worth it. Haha, adorable <3!!

Hey I have a question.....why can we only submit one chapter? Waht is we changed it to two or something?

By Iris Messenger

Validating a ton of chapters takes time. Someone submitting twenty chapters at a time in effect blocks the queue, making validation slower for everyone else, regardless of how many chapters they submitted. I don't believe this rule will be changing in the near future.

I bought fangs at hot topic, but then I got braces!!! Doesn't that suck? I mean, the cullens might not have fangs, but they don't have braces either!!!! Such a waste of fifteen dollars... Fifteen dollars!!!

Another reason why it's only one:

If there's a problem in the first chapter and it can't be validated... then we have to reject all of them, reguardless. That means that until you get each of the chapters perfect, each subsequent chapter can't be validated. This makes a lot of pointless validating for us, and takes up a LOT of extra time. And Iris is right, it won't be changing any time soon.

Thanks for this update, Iris, even though I'm late in commenting on it :P

Wow, they must be making a LOT of money off of this movie! I haven't pre-ordered yet because I haven't had the money, though I should have... I doubt I'll get in now. We'll see... -fingers crossed-
Lucky you finding a show though!
