The Doldrums

Posted 21 Nov 09

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.

EDIT;;

Okay, guys. I understand it's taking awhile (like Iris said) to validate. I apologize sincerely and know how hard it is to just wait it out sometimes. But just because it is taking a little longer than usual to get some stories through the queue, doesn't mean you can just break the rules. Please, people, for my sake and yours -- ONLY SUBMIT ONE CHAPTER OF A STORY AT A TIME. Then, wait for that to be validated before submitting the next one. Also, categorize them appropriately into ONLY ONE CATEGORY. Thanks a bunch, and sorry again for the delays...

 

AND NUMBER 2:
If your story is not in ONE category, even if you're already on something like chapter 8 and it hasn't been caught until now, the new chapters you are trying to get validated will NOT be accepted until it is changed into ONE category. This is easy to fix, just edit the story and pick the category that is most appropriate.

Anyone! I am trying to find a story, but I can't remember the name of it! It is about how Bella and Edward are just about to get married, and then...she wakes up and realizes is was all a dream. At least, that is what the summary says. If anyone knows, I would extremely appreciate it if you just told me the title of the story, or even the author, right on this page. Thank you!!

Oh I think I know which one it is!...The author is ObsessiveCullenDisorter, and the story is called "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" Is similar to the summary you mentioned =]...If is not the story you were looking for, this one is really good and I'll bet you'll like it ^_^

Wait so does Iris are you validating them now and i feel yer pain... my sis just got back from state and she was moaning how bad the accounting class was and how shes 4.0ing it. Anyhoo sorry i just added 2 new chapters without realizing this was posted. (sorry) So basically my question was.. are you going to validate them more now with so many college students off campus?

Um... Hi mods!!! I know how you all are EXTREMELY busy with stuff, such as life, [I know, I am too]I just wanted to say that I have uploaded a chapter of one of my stories a little over a month [I think] and it hasn't been on the most recent list yet =/...But I guess I'll have to wait huh? I have a suggestion [And I don't want it to be taken the wrong way or anything, plus its whatever...] but here it goes: Since this site has sooo many authors now, you guys might consider having a trusted author kinda thing. I've seen it in some sites and I guess it makes it easier for mods. I'm not sure how they choose them, but I'm sure you can figure out who you want to handout those privileges. That way you all can get check stories with more ease. Readers get there's stories and Authors can continue... well, being authors? I guess. Its a win win if you ask me =D. Again, this is only a suggestions ^_^ ~MRSBellaCullenBlack

Hey guys! I haven't been able to squeeze much time in from my craaazy schedule, however, I've put a decent dent in the submissions during my free period around campus. Anyway, it's too awesome to see just how many people love this site and love the saga. xD Okay, cheesy moment over :)

We actually have a thing called 'Auto-Validation'. this hasn't really been updated with a lot of authors for quite a while now, but still some authors have it. If i'm correct, Kaiwynn started doing this probably a year after the site was made...or sometime around there (i can't remember). I have it, but i know im not the only one. most of what i like to call 'senior citizen' authors have it, because it was only done so long ago. Come to think of it, there aren't a very large number of people from early 2007 still active! ah how time goes by when you have no life ;) juusssttt kidding!

Really? It would be real cool if this site still had those 'Auto-Validation'..anyhoo...Thanks for telling me that ^_^!
