friend's cut

I've been thinking about this for a while and I think it's about time I do a friends cut. I hope this doesn't offend anyone but my flist is getting a bit long to read through and although I think all of you are awesome it just seems that I find myself skimming over more journals than I really read. I'm sure most of you do the same to me (I'm not looking for Oh! No I don't! I love to hear you whine about your X and your kid!). I know that for everyone on my journal at some point we were talking and probably had a lot in common but I've been on here for a few years and interests and people change.

Don't leave me! We may not chat much anymore, but you were one of my first friends (I'm sure it was the first) here on LJ.

But we still chat every so many entries. I have a few people on my flist that I think we've never commented on each other's journals except maybe for three or four times.

Okay. As long as we're still cool. So basically, you have lurkers? How's Trev?

Starting school in a little over a week. I feel old.

Oh... the big Kindergarten? Wow... when we friended each other he was what... three or so?

yeah, I think so. Three or two, I've had this lj for a while and I think I met you at near the start.

I know how you feel.
I can't find the heart to friend cut anyone, but I know I should.
I was gone for a week and I had to go back more than 200+ entries to just catch up with everyone.
I would say to just comment to me telling me what is going on in their lives-- but most just skim past my journal and won't even comment that, so I need to go back and read everything.

I love friends. I love new friends. I just wish *I* wasn't so loveable =P.

*pastes self to comment* I am staying.

I really dislike LJ's system of friend list and 'friend of' list - it sucks cow balls. I just recently got back after a long hiatus and decided to clean out all the people I drifted apart from, and all the people who's posts I found myself skimming or skipping, and it wasn't easy. I wish LJ would stop fussing over so called kiddie porn and go fix out something that matters :-/

I agree. I like myspace where I can check people's blogs if I feel like it and people can message me or respond to a bulletin if they have something they want to tell me. LJ is just really personal (for me, a lot personal) so I'm trying to keep my numbers down now.

yeah, and they no longer strikethrough, it's bolded now, right? What rubbish.

For me LJ is in a lot of cases a documentation of my life, because sometimes I need to go back and read old posts to get my head straight. When really random people latch on to it it's just odd to me, because I'm not that interesting and I'm not a BNF o.O

I have no idea what they're on about with all the new rules and things. What they seem to be forgetting is that teh "roots" of the HP community in LJ are all made of text and that can be relatively easy to relocate. The internet is big, and the USA aren't controlling all of it just yet. So if LJ pushes fandom too much people will go elsewhere.

I'm sorry I'm so late with the reminder, but just in case you forgot (I hope not), your ficmas fic is due on Sunday the 16th.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you can't make the deadline or have any problems/questions. I meant to send reminders out last week but this all snuck up on me somehow. I can't believe it's December already.

Thanks for agreeing to participate,

StrangerWithMyFace (Emily)

PS. Also, sorry to reply to a random entry. I tried to email you at the @livejournal.com email address and it got bounced back.

Have not forgotten at all! You'll have it by Saturday night. Where do I send it?

Go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DracoGinnyFanfic/

Select "Post" on the left hand side (it's underneath messages). Put "FICMAS: [Title, Rating, by Author]" in the subject head.

Then put:

RATING: [Whatever it is]
DISCLAIMER: [Blah, blah, whatever]
NOTES; [If you have them]

And then post the fic into the body of the email. I think it should be easy but if you have problems let me know; also all the messages are on moderate--I have to approve them-- so if you really screw it up somehow (which I doubt) then I'll let you know.

This is probably really bad but I'm not sure how to post a something on a yahoo page. I mean to say that any italics that I write I put all the html in when I'm writing a story. Do I need to take that out and just do it in word before I send it?
Dec. 16th, 2007 05:47 pm (UTC)
All the HTML will disappear when you post from the Yahoo page. You could upload the file to the files section of the page, and then link to it in your post instead of posting it in the body of the message.
