Public Announcements and a Poll

1. Sometimes I hate LJ - usually when there have been 'improvements' to the service. For some time now I've been missing some people from my FList on my Friends' View page. So I checked the settings - some folk are not on the default list and the 'default' wasn't set to 'public'. The only other setting available is 'private' - WTF? If you haven't been seeing any entries from me recently, and if I haven't been commenting as often as I normally do on yours, this may well be the reason.

Following up on an entry I made in December, I'm trying to prune my FList - hence the Poll

Poll #907835 Are you still an active 'subscriber' to my FList?

Have you read this entry?


Do you regularly read my entries?


Want to stay 'subscibed' to my Flist

No, please remove me

Want to be added to my FList to view Flocked entries?

Yes, please add me.


2. There is good news over at writerconuk about an event that will run this August. Go check it out.

Is that devil mooning me? That's just cool rude!
16th-Jan-2007 04:48 pm (UTC) - Re: Clicky badge
It's even cooler ruder on the umbrellas - click through the badge and then 'shop' to view all the articles.

that sounds most annoying, will watch out for the settings thing

I just asked to be part of a list, I think I am already on. I blame school.

Designing polls is not my forte.

It's the teachers who are at fault ;)
16th-Jan-2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
I figure polls are a paid feature? I would probably fail miserably. On occasion a meer post, not even a picture takes me 5 tries, mood icon changing from accomplished to pissed:)

some folk are not on the default list

There's a default list? Is this just the list of everyone you've friended - I never just go into 'friends' but use the filters I've set up to filter out community stuff I don't want to see every day.

16th-Jan-2007 04:56 pm (UTC)
Normally when you friend someone, you get a clicky box list of all the filters you have set up and you can add them to the ones you chose. If you haven't any, then yes adding a 'friend' puts them on the 'default' list as it's the only one you've got. Once you've set up filters, you have to make sure that you add everyone you want onto each filter and make sure they stay on the default as well. I think I must have inadvertently moved people off the default when I was reorganising and renaming filters.

Vote done.:)

I don't like LJ "improvements either". Most of the time I'm completely lost and unable to do things properly or at least the way I want.
16th-Jan-2007 05:11 pm (UTC)
I'm not lost but was 'at a loss' to work out why I wasn't seeing certain people's entries again when I knew they were posting.

Are you tempted by writerconuk's MidiMeet?
16th-Jan-2007 06:00 pm (UTC)
I'm very tempted by writerconuk 's Midmeet , but my husband is in vacation in August and it should be family time ( with both our sons ) so for now it sounds like it would be difficult to fly to the UK. Yet we don't have something specific planned.
I need to talk to him about it . Since i'm already going to London several days in the spring ,it may be a hard task to persuade him!
Is there a date where you need to know who is going ?
16th-Jan-2007 06:19 pm (UTC)
I hope you will be able to join us Caroline but appreciate the difficulties this might cause. There will be other occasions.

The details should be up early next week and we have no idea of the amount of interest there might be. Once 30 have signed up with a deposit for the membership fee on pay-pal, there will be a 'waiting list' set up in case of cancellations.

I love polls.. *waves*
16th-Jan-2007 11:50 pm (UTC)
Waves back. Have you had any more icon making sessions?
17th-Jan-2007 11:40 pm (UTC)
A couple :)
I have a bunch of pics and I've started the crop/resize thing...
17th-Jan-2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
I made one. My first attempt making my own 'cap' and I had to chose the really fast action in 'Destiny' but look - it worked.

::waits for your latest batch::

This is a beautiful cap! He seems so... growl... Spike! I love that episode, sigh.
18th-Jan-2007 12:17 am (UTC)
love that episode
Me too.

This is a beautiful cap! He seems so... growl... Spike!
Thank you for saying that. There are very few 'action Spike' icons available so I thought I'd have a go at making my own. I'm now searching for suitable text to go with it.

That Flock thing was very confusing, you're already on it.
21st-Jan-2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
I know I'm not around as much as I'd like, but I still want to be friends...
21st-Jan-2007 10:42 pm (UTC)

I'm glad you're here now specifically to ask if you're going to be able to make the MidiMeet in August (weekend of 10th). Places are limited and I suspect they'll be gobbled up as soon as we go 'live' with the bookings. We've an impressive programme planned - speakr2custmrs is travelling over to run one of the workshops.

That's right in the middle of the school holidays, so I won't be able to get away on Friday. Probably going to have to be a no, then, but I'll give it some more thought when I'm feeling slightly less like slitting my wrists...
21st-Jan-2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
I can't tell you how disappointed I'd be if you didn't come because that would only add to your angst.

Could you get away in the afternoon if the children were entertained at someone else's house until himself got home?
