Don't miss the start of SpinDizzy's World Fair '13: Fifteen Years of Progress! The official opening is Saturday night, 8 pm Pacific Time, but the very first event is at 7 pm tonight.
It's time for a fresh idle purge on SpinDizzy, I'm afraid. The folks listed below, and their belongings, will be wiped clean off the muck if they don't connect or indicate a desire to connect by Saturday, August 17. If you know any of them, please tell them of the idle-purge. Also, if you know of any who are not able to make it onto the muck for some reason, please contact me with news of this.
If you do spot any of these folks connecting, please let them know we'd like to have them back on the muck, and help them to feel part of the community again. Thank you.
Alas, it's time to clean up the database, and our name space, some, by removing characters who've been gone for more than a year. If you know any of the people on this list, please contact them and let them know to connect here by the 19th of February or they face the purging of their possessions and the toading of their characters.
Anyone who does connect, or who sends word to us that there's hope they'll resume connecting after whatever problems are keeping them away, we're happy to spare. If you do see any of the idle-threatened, please invite them back into society; it's not like we don't want any more to do with them, after all.
I confess I don't expect that ToadNRecPlease will be coming back.
Polls to Open at Midnight; Vote Will Be by Instant Runoff (by BunnyHugger)
Transcript of Tuesday's Debate (by Featherwing)
Meet the Candidates (by BunnyHugger)
Elections 4 is on. We'll be choosing a Mayor in the coming month. According to a bulletiin board post by Beltrami --- and echoed on the official newspaper --- is as follows:
|January 7||Official Calling of election. Nominations will be accepted only from the 7th to the 11th.|
|January 11||Nominations Day. Start of campaigns. No electioneering prior to the publication of the official Candidate List.|
|January 20||Start of Voting. End of electioneering.|
|January 23||Close of Voting. Winner announced after the close.|
|January 26||Inauguration of new Mayor.|
Nothing got done.
Also, if you see me, make sure I know your name on here, and please don't be offended if I don't recognize you by sight.
Please send me a pagemail, or text me at 801-999-TAIL.
There's so much that's missing from the new one too - the Who's Who pages, the 'What Makes Spindizzy Special' essay, and even the FAQ files are gone. There is surely some way that the improvements in coding, etc, can be kept, and used within the old site's layouts and graphics.
It's an unhappy but necessary duty. The people on this list have been away from SpinDizzy for more than a year, so we're sending out the summons to please either come back to us --- and I hope everyone who's on SpinDizzy will watch for these folks, either in popping up here or through other mucks, Twitter, Livejournal, or whatever methods they may have to reach them --- so we can get them back. My ideal is to someday have an idle purge where nobody gets removed, but it'll take the community making everyone feel the people here are and should be part of it in order to reach that ideal.
Please let the folks know that sometime after Tuesday, the 21st of August, we'll be removing their characters and creations.
If you're not on SpinDizzy, give us a try. We're open all seasons, and are coming to the final days of our Olympic Games soon. The muck's newspaper is at http://www.spindizzy.org/nwp/newspaper/ and it maintains the @SpinDizzy_Muck Twitter feed, as well as the Livejournal community http://spindizzy-muck.livejournal.com/ and of course you can reach it at muck.spindizzy.org port 7072 (or 7073 for SSL).
