And also feel free to correct any typos, if you see any! There was a bit of delay yesterday because of RL. I thought I'd ask here for an admin to lock the thread as I see none are online (you might've been expecting me to post yesterday). The plan is to post them on Friday afternoon's but I haven't yet been able to round anyone else to replace me in my absence.

Effort [In reply to] Can't Post

I did not envy the amount of work it must have taken this week for you, Daniel, to create a good, succinct review of this week's activity. Nicely concise. One might ponder that "It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing."

I had trouble keeping up with news this week [In reply to] Can't Post

So I have a feeling a couple of bits and pieces may have slipped under the radar. I double-checked, so hopefully not.

Is it still meeting your expectations of what you hoped for Magpie? Are the news pieces, the descriptions and classifications okay?

Opinions always welcome. Smile

It's perfect. I couldn't nor wouldn't ask for anything more [In reply to] Can't Post

Although I agree with locking the thread, the one downside of it is that you won't get the 'thanks' that I know would come so easily were people able to respond. It's hard to do work - and this is 'work' - and not only not get feedback, but not get thanks. I am certain there are lots that are thankful whether you hear it or not.

I did pretty well keeping up this week but I did follow one of your links for more info. Last week, I caught your link to a soundtrack thread and hastened over there immediately where I followed (and participated in) an enjoyable conversation.

Will this be too much for you during weeks with too much news? Is there some way to make it more manageable? I see you are asking for help which is good.

And if the week presents itself when it's just 'too much'... let yourself off the hook either in terms of posting at all, or just in not making it all so pretty. Making clickable text links is good but not essential. You can dump just the url. And if it's easier, you can even dump the url without making it clickable. I've found that most browsers today let you highlight a non-clickable url, right click it, and then choose to 'go to' it. So clickable links are easy but, for me, non-clickable links only require a minimal amount of more action than a clickable link.

And the spoiler classifications are nice, but if it came down to having time to post without them or not at all... then leave them off for a week.

As a perfectionist/completionist... I know how one can push oneself past necessary limits. :-) Anything you provide is of benefit. Don't feel you have to do it all - every time.

Thank you Magpie :-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I just wanted to make sure it was hitting the right mark, and there weren't any glaring mistakes. Feedback is always very helpful, and it's very much appreciated.

I haven't found any volunteers yet, so I might scout some people out. It's handy to collect the links as the week goes by, rather than a last minute "rush". I'm too much of a perfectionist not to make it look pretty Laugh. That certainly takes the most amount of time though!
