We’ve had feedback from one of our users that she pressed the ‘submit’ button before she was finished, because she didn’t realize it would submit her results. She thinks you should change it so that pressing ‘submit’ doesn’t submit the results before the user is finished, because other people will probably make the same mistake.
The form in question is a simple internal survey with two questions, one of them (the only one that requires typing) being entirely optional. The link to the survey was eventually sent out by the CEO with the following text: “A handy tip: don’t click ‘submit your answers’ until you have given all your answers.”
Man, I don’t care if it is legitimately a word, but Google Docs:
When I type out the words "all right" please don’t ever, ever suggest to me that it is misspelled and I should insert "alright" instead. If I type "all right", I mean "all right."
So no. Just…no.
It could be worse.
I’ve had it suggest that I correct ‘a lot’ to ‘alot’.
This is what you get when you learn grammar from the Internet.
(I think they’ve fixed that one now.)
Punch it, Chewie!
Star Wars #2, August 1977
Howard Chaykin and Roy Thomas
I had a big (I remember it as huge, like 11x14 or bigger, but that may just be time) trade of the first movie’s comics as a kid. I always loved this view of hyperspace.
look kiddos: due to tumblr’s half-baked tagging system (where only so many tags count towards actually categorizing a given post), tags on this site have evolved into an acceptable form of dispensing and sharing commentary, but that is not the case on other websites — ESPECIALLY AO3. tags on AO3 are intended to be functional, not conversational, and not only do excessive paragraphs of tags like these look patently ridiculous and sell your work short, they also make life harder for the site’s tag wranglers who volunteer their time to keep the tags organized so people can actually find your fic.
in short, knock it off.
This is something I would never, ever say in almost any other circumstance, but if you tag your fic on AO3 as if you were tagging a tumblr post, YOU ARE DOING FANDOM WRONG.
AO3 tags are not Tumblr tags, space friends. Don’t do the thing.
Except the wranglers have said, time and time again, that this sort of tagging is okay.
Seriously. These tags are not a problem. Get over yourself, skip that work, and go on to the next one.
The folks claiming that the system can’t cope with this are…oh, let’s go with OBJECTIVELY WRONG. Folks claiming that the wranglers don’t like these tags are OBJECTIVELY WRONG.
But getting into a complete snit-fit about something this inconsequential is so totally appropriate for fandom that it’s totally DOING FANDOM RIGHT. Or at least doing it the way we’ve always done it.
(That said, yes, the example at the top is perhaps a bit much.)
Exhibit 13: Blue Man Group’s tribute to those lost on September 11. Papers from the destroyed buildings blew into a Brooklyn neighborhood; these are some of those papers. Testaments of lives interrupted.
Reblogging for the 13th anniversary.
So, I need a name in the Star Wars universe that is obviously meant to be Canada. (As in, there’s a character who doesn’t believe a particular girlfriend actually exists, so he asks if she’s from the Canada-equivalent.)
My current preferred option is Canadraan, but other options include Cantooine, the moon Canad IV, and Hoth.
Just remember kids whenever you think you’re never gonna fall in love with the person you obsess with I obsessed over a artist for 7 months and now she’s my girlfriend
I spent my entire freshman year at college obsessed with a young woman I met at student orientation.
Sophomore year, I figured out it wasn’t mutual but she just wanted to be friends. So we were friends, and I found someone else to obsess over.
Junior year, we moved from being friends to dating.
Senior year, we got engaged.
We got married the day after graduation.
That was over twenty years ago, and we’re still happily married.
