    In spite of new members making the declaration that they have read and will abide by the Rules, the message still doesn't seem to be getting through. Therefore, it bears repeating:

    I don't have any roommates or anything like that, but for the benefit of anyone who would read this:

    How would we notify you guys?

    Just PM a staff member(s)?

    If so, which staff member(s)?

It really does take all kinds.

    The fastest way would be to PM one of admin team (red, blue).

    Let me get this straight. 10 accounts, to gain votes in a a place that has no outside influance. Meaning there is no way for them to brag how well They did to get published. Actually no way to prove it if they did.

    Or am I wrong, does this place hold such prestige that the publishers will come asking for credentials. If so let me sign up for a twenty pack. LOL. ROTFL. I mean it was not noted in the search I did to find this place. I feel cheated.

    Good work catching the culprit. I still cannot fathom why they did it, what did they think to gain?

    To be fair, it would be a reasonable assumption that it could go down as a publishing credit. As I currently don't have a great deal to put on my writing CV, I mention that I moderate on a writing forum. No reason why, if you're proud of it, you can't use a win on here as writing history for your CV.

    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    I hate sock puppets, especially when they're created for trolling, or cheating. Good work men (and women)!

    I'd never heard the term until reading of it here, is it an Americanism?
