2007-08-20 [Linderel]: Interesting. *stalks*

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: *grins* hey you beat me to the punch. Its a good idea don't you think.

2007-08-20 [Linderel]: Mm-hm. I don't need help, myself, but perhaps I can give a hand if this takes off.

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: I am grateful for the help, not very good in that aspect. 

2007-08-20 [Linderel]: I nitpick everyone ^_^

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: well you are welcome to nitpick me anytime, I can use all the help I can get. <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif><img:stuff/mood33-gif.gif>

2007-08-20 [silent_voice]: Yes same I'm going to help as well.. I talked to Artsie and stuff.

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: cool, the more the merrier. LOL

2007-08-20 [Artsieladie]: Hi, all! One never knows how something may fly, but you just kinda' try & see. I'm always wanting to fix things when I see those spelling errors & such. I get itchy fingers. I welcome your help, Elfy's TEDDY BEAR! *giggles* I just found out that you are YOU! :D Just think [Linderel], you'll be able to nitpick to your heart's content, if you'd like!  :D

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: Well I for one welcome the help, being that I am always asking either Artsie or Silent to look at my stuff and tell me where I need corrections. hehehe *hugs you guys*

2007-08-20 [Artsieladie]: *grins & huggles back* I like to help out whenever I can in the ways that I can. We all have things we are good at & things we aren't so good at, but in the long run, if everyone works together, it all works out in the end. :D

2007-08-20 [Morningstar Rising]: yep I agree that it all works out in the end. 

2007-10-23 [Artsieladie]: Haven't had a chance to really give this some time, but managed to grab some now. I've made some changes, trying to simplify the how-tos & whatnot. I set up a page for those that would like to be editors to sign up on. I'm thinking, giving an example of one's writing would be a good way to see how well the applicants know the English language. I'm expecting some differences of opinions, but they shouldn't be catastrophic. :P I'm always open to other ideas & suggestions. So, fire away! lol 

2007-10-24 [Artsieladie]: Thanks, [Linderel]. I worked on this when I was majorly sleep deprived. In fact I didn't notice that "@" won't do the red color change in brackets, 'til now. :P

2007-10-24 [Linderel]: Hehe, no problem. Happens sometimes. :P

2007-10-24 [Artsieladie]: With me it happens a lot, b/c I don't want to sleep, when I should. Then I get myself overtired & can't sleep, 'til I'm exhausted. :P

2008-07-13 [Artsieladie]: Ok, so the recent comments disappeared once again. I'm hoping whoever was here & placed a comment will come back & repost their comment...if, of course, they placed this page on watch. With the Magic Writing Competition underway, perhaps, there are some in need of some 'editing assistance'? <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2008-07-13 [Linderel]: It was [Danboo], directed here by me from DP. :)
Said that he'd come here first when he next has something to post.

As for people needing editing assistance... Are we advertising this anywhere? :o

2008-07-13 [Artsieladie]: Ah, great! :) It should be advertised, eh? Not sure, but I think [Triola] mentioned this wiki on Mainstreet when she was a Featured Member. I have yet to set my house up as one big 'advertising agent', but I've been putting a lot of time into my promotional campaign for Elftown. *puts this 'ad agent' idea near the top of to-do list* ;)

2008-07-13 [Linderel]: Might be a good idea to mention this on the Writing and Advertising in Elftown forums. :3

2008-07-13 [Artsieladie]: Ooh! Excellent idea! Good thinking! :) Would you like to do this? ;) *dreading forum run, takes forever to go from one posting to the next...ET is so sloooooow* :/

2008-07-13 [Linderel]: Haha, will do. :)
Do you think we should have some sort of banner? *willing to whip one up*

2008-07-13 [Danboo]: We should post this on daily poem, so that people will proofread here.

2008-07-13 [Linderel]: Not that many people actually read the top of the page there, but you do have a point. I actually thought about adding a link earlier, but forgot about it.

2008-07-13 [Danboo]: yay, i actually helped

2008-07-13 [Artsieladie]: Thank you. :) A banner is always nice, I think. Sounds great...again! :D I think adding a link at the DP wouldn't hurt. Good idea, [Danboo]! :) As [Linderel] says, though, not many read it. If they did, there wouldn't be as many Please fix your format or your poem will be removed comments. <img:stuff/sa-gif.gif>

2008-07-13 [Danboo]: maybe it it was bold, or bigger like h1 or h2 or somethign

2008-07-13 [Linderel]: <URL:stuff/editingassistance.png>
Here be the banner. I tried it out on the page, but I think it would be better used only in advertising.

2008-07-15 [Artsieladie]: I like it! I think it looks very professional. I'll try it on the page. :)

[Edit:] I put it up. I just adjusted the size to 500. But...I like it! :D

2008-07-15 [Danboo]: it looks good

2008-07-15 [Artsieladie]: Yes, I think so, too! :) Thank you, [Linderel]. :)

2008-07-15 [Linderel]: Very welcome :3

2008-10-26 [Captain Rachel Black]: soooo, is there a limit on how much you guys will take or no? For mine is rather long...^^'

2008-10-27 [Linderel]: I don't think so. The longer the text is the longer it will take to read through and edit, but other than that...

2008-10-29 [Artsieladie]: *nods to Linderel* I haven't really ever thought there should be. I mean a written piece is a written piece regardless of its length, but as Lin says, one has to realise that editing a longer piece would take longer, naturally. :D

[Captain Rachel Black], I'm always glad to hear about writers writing, because I would like to see more writers get more exposure for their works. It seems ET either hasn't many or they are all hiding. hehe I would really like to see more writers active with the Elftown Creature Marathon project, perhaps form a writing group? (just a thought) <img:stuff/c-gif.gif>

2008-10-29 [Captain Rachel Black]: Thank you for the clarity [Linderel] ^^

A writing group as in a wiki where we read each other's works? That sounds like a speldiforous idea [Artsieladie] XD

And I've neve really been clear what the the ECM is, but that's normal for me, what does one do in it exactly? *_*

2008-10-29 [Artsieladie]: Well, I like your idea, too! A place to submit works and then discuss each other's work sounds great. Maybe kinda' like a Writer's Guild? We might already have something here along these lines. I dunno, but I guess we can look around and see. Maybe The Wiki's Wiki Page would be a good place to start such a search. :D

For the Elftown Creature Marathon project by a writing group I meant a group of people, writers, working both separately and together, depending on the stages and what the group feels would work best, doing write-ups about the creatures, both factual and fictional. :)

2008-10-29 [Captain Rachel Black]: But, what did you have in mind origionally?

(and thanks fo the EMC explination >.<')

2008-10-29 [Artsieladie]: hehe What I had in mind originally is in my second paragraph of my previous comment. Would you be interested in helping with Writers Rock!, like helping to find more similar wikis, reaching more Elftown writers or anything else you can think of? ;)

2008-10-29 [Captain Rachel Black]: OH! *jumps up and down* yes indeed! I would love to help ^^

2008-10-30 [Artsieladie]: Great! *jumps up and down with* All the pages are 'freely editable' for starters, because I want all writers to feel they are a part of this. I just set up the pages AND it was you that gave me that little positive push I needed to go ahead and set it up, to go for it. :D Any ideas or suggestions? Dump them on me, please!  hehe *takes cover* JK! Thanks for giving me that little extra nudge I needed! Now, let's hope that the writers on Elftown will all come out in droves to see that writing gets more recognition here. *hugs* :)

2008-10-30 [Captain Rachel Black]: *hugs* yay I love being a muse (ish person?) I added the Cliche contest on there and I'm scouring my friends pages for contests that don't get much publicity.

2008-10-30 [Artsieladie]: Ah, good! I saw. :) I want to spread the word, of course. I even spammed a little. *is guilty of spamming!* O..O ;P

2008-10-30 [Captain Rachel Black]: I saw your spamming XD tsk tsk!

2008-11-09 [Artsieladie]: *feels ashamed and bows head but is chuckling* <img:stuff/mood-gif.gif>

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: Hi, I was wondering is an editor would be willing for me to e-mail them a 12 chapter story I've started and edit it from the document.

2010-09-12 [*Phoenix*]: I wouldn't mind! ^_^

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: I never realized you were an editor or I would have just asked you from the start! Okay I'll e-mail it to you.

2010-09-12 [*Phoenix*]: Yesh. I is third on the list. *points up^ * Okay. Is there a time you'd like it done by?

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: If you can maybe by halloween if possible, if not anytime is good. I just found that the erors were bothering me so much and i couldn;t figure out what was wrong with them so I've been unable to right any more of it.

2010-09-12 [*Phoenix*]: Okay. Do you want me to edit right over the version and email it back so then you can see if you like how it reads?

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: yup. Just do it right on the what I sent you.

2010-09-12 [*Phoenix*]: Okies!
