Not that I know of, she could be someone from College or TLE that I don't know.  But Googleing your name comes up with a lot of BSs.  It;s kinda funny that the #1 return for your name was born in the same year as you.

maybe the forum needs an "odor of the day" feature, I dont know why but I think it would be really cool and occasionally disturbing, like up at the banner where it's say "hello your <name here>, it's <whatever date>  and the odor of the day is<insert odor here>, you guys prolly will think this is dumb, but I still thinks it's pretty good...

I'm sorry if this offends you. I don't mean anything insulting about it, but...

That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.

lol.  


Anyway, I don't think I'm the mysterious Brandon Sanderson this Jen is looking for.

Back to the topic at hand, SE, what do you think of putting "Article" or something in front of the thread names that deal with things from the first page?

For instance, "Article: Interesting WWII Facts."

I make this suggestion for two reasons.  First, if I let a thread slip by for a while, I often skip down to the bottom to see what people are saying right now.  I think if I knew when I clicked that I was going into a thread where everyone else had already read a specific article, I'd know to read the article before skipping to the bottom.  Also, I think this would help people who like to use the 'Ten most recent posts' function.

I had an idea today for the site.  It's about webcomics.  Don't ask me why this came to me 'cause I never read them.  But I thought, since apparently the site has a reputation for liking and reviewing webcomics, we could do an annual or biannual awards kind of thing for webcomics.  We could call them the Wasties.  It would be like any other kind of awards situation: best webcomic (for the year or half-year or whatever), best individual strip, best new webcomic, best art, best story, etc etc.  If we play it up we might be able to get some exposure for this.  People might advertise that they won a Wastie or something and link to the site.  Anyways, it's an idea.

that is an interesting thought. We'd need a little button or something. And a list somewhere of all previous wasties.
We'd also need a committee. Probably EUOL and I should be on it.

Since when do we have enough members to pull off an awards thing?
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Over 200 active at least, off the top of my head.

The only problem I see with this idea is that there are already a bunch of comic/webcomic awards out there. Why add one more to the pot?

Yeah.  The simple problem is that we're not dedicated enough.  Some serious people such as Damonk have made comics, and webcomics, the focus of their lives.  I just can't do that.  I'm a fantasy novelist, and that has to remain my priority.  

I'm going to do my best just to get out more reviews.  That's how I think I should contribute to the community.  However, I wouldn't be comfortable offering any awards.
