I just realised Rick, that two upcoming things I have to announce are in 'online journals' so I retract everything I said. Away with your vile elitism!

Whatever the intention was, it's easy enough to see what actually happened. On Accomplished Members, way down at the bottom of the page, under "Display Options," set "from the" to "Beginning" and hit "Show Threads." This will bring up every Accomplished Member post that ever was, and if you then select "Last" you'll see the very earliest ones. You can then judge for yourself what sort of things people were posting.

In the ancient times Accomplished Members was mostly my noting publications of members, but we lost our shyness as we grew exponentially, and now no small group of people could track what people are doing.

I think self-regulation works better here than elsewhere in the magical kingdom of Eratosphere, so I would leave things are they are.

I don't have to worry about receiving one of these, then? Just the usual 237 views and 0 replies, which basically communicate the same thing?

Thank you for your interest in the Accomplished Members forum.

We have carefully considered your self-puffery and we're sorry that it isn't quite right for us at this time.

However, we hope you'll try us again in the future. Thank you very much for the opportunity to consider your work.

Sincerely,
Rhadamanthys, Minos, and Aeacus

I rarely find time to check the online dailies, so I appreciate the prompt when people who interest me are in them.

I'm more than happy with 'Let well enough alone', though I think it was valid point to raise. Still, I may have a little play with what Maryann suggested, mainly because I'm quite fascinated with the history of this place. But I'm sad like that..

Julie, that did make me smile! Though I'm not sure being rejected by those three judges is such a bad thing...

Cheers,
John

My sentiments exactly. I can't for the life of me see why this is a problem for those who do check the dailies daily. Is it really that annoying to see a subject line referring to something you already know?
