So this may seem a little "anal" of me, but I run into a lot of videos posted on spots that are broken, and for that, I report them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously posted every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which videos may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots by reporting broken content, but it is very time consuming...
As a tip, and to make this job easier for people who contribute a lot, broken videos often have a gray video camera as the image...
I hate chain letters in my e-mail box. I do not want to see them in my Fanpop updates.
I remember a year or more ago, link got the mickey taken out of him by DrDevience and others for posting unoriginal chain letters and Rush Limbaugh transcripts as soapboxes. He acted accordingly and removed those articles, and though I think we came down a little unfairly on him, I agreed that chain letters should not be posted as soapboxes, because they are not original work, which was the...
I think that this article belongs here in opposed to 'Fanpop Spots' because it is a Fanpop Etiquette issue, as well as a spot or club issue.
When you join a spot it appears in your updates as one of your spots and so do the ones you create, I've heard some people say that a spot that you created 'isn't your spot' now I know that the spots belong to Fanpop and I realize that 'most' of you would be very proud of your creations just as I am of mine.
However if you are the spot creator then 'in my opinion' the spot is yours to some degree, you create the spot, only you can change the...
I decided to write this article because I have seen questions being asked about unsubscribing from spots and I have dropped a few spots myself.
The only two reasons I will drop a spot is if the spot has little or no content or the topic isn't exactly a favorite of mine, even if I thought it would be.
I do admit that I feel like a real mean bitch when I decide to leave a spot and I'm not here to redeem myself or make excuses, but to help other fans who are in a similar situation as I am and also hopefully for some feedback, comments and ideas.
It has been going on for awhile, but I've noticed it especially most recently. The bottom line of this entire article lays in its title: pick's aren't made for advertising.
Repetitively, picks are being created that ask "I've just made a spot for ___, will you join it?", or something along those lines. Picks like these aren't really opinions and hold little gumption in terms of an interesting poll or contrasting views on a subject. Picks like these are being made to solicit new spots, which isn't what picks are for.
Hello, seekers of good answers to burning questions! It has come to my attention that an official guide to using the new Answers feature is necessary in order to prevent abuse of this fabulous new fun feature.
I stumbled across fanfly's question about the link for this feature and answered the question with a list of five things I think are the most important to keep in mind. Urged by germany123 to make it into a soapbox, I present to you the Official Rules of the Fanpop Answers Feature.
I am so sick of all the nastiness and sarcasm that goes on in Fanpop, through the forums, via fan pick questions and comments left regarding images etc.
And I'm sick of being so nice about it when there's only so much one person can take, I've almost left Fanpop on a few occasions because of 'some' peoples attitudes here and I'm over it.
I have been on Fanpop for almost a year now and I'm not nasty to people, I get on here and do my thing and contribute as much as I can, but if I cop anymore shit or see people being nasty to other people here I will report them and I'll name all of...
I have created quiet a few spots now and I love contributions of any kind, but I am surprised at how many people will pick on 'any' fan pick question just for the sake of it even if they don't like the subject at hand.
Perfect examples of this behavior is what I have noticed not only on spots that I've created but many other spots as well, someone may put up a question such as: 'Do You Like The Movie Enchanted?' and someone will answer 'Never Seen It' or another question, say - 'Which Bambi Photo Is Your Favorite?' only for someone to come up with 'I Hate Bambi.'
So I tried to think of a catchier title, but I figured I might as well just call it what it is. I have seen instances of (what I believe to be unintentional) heterosexism in several Fanpop picks. As evidenced by link, however, some believe it to be intentional.
Now I'm not trying to whine about wording or being politically correct. In fact, I'm not politically correct in the slightest, as anyone who knows me well enough will tell you. And this issue isn't really a big deal, I just wanted to make people aware of...
i was wondering aboot the reasons why we cant (though i dont care to change it myself)and why the content we post is treated the way it is in terms of editing and deleting- please enlighten me on the matter :P
