Retired staff. Please stop asking me to approve your stories.


Updates, and Endings · 11:51pm Dec 23rd, 2019

Been a while, eh? A part of me wants to put a joke there, maybe a "kept you waiting, huh?" reference, but I don't think this is the blog for it.

Just a heads up, this isn't going to be a fun blog.

I'm Professor Plum. Story approver, reviewer, editor, and livestreamer for the masses.

Got horseword questions? Drop me a PM, and I'll see what I can do.

Want to hear my opinions on things? Check out the Seattle's Angels Resource Thread, where you can find a complete list of all the reviews we've done, as well as all the livestreams we've put up. Except for that one at bronycon last year. No, aquaman, it's not getting published.

Co-founder, Admin and Reviewer for WRITE, a collection of some this fandom's most experienced reviewers.
Co-founder and Admin of The Admin's Group, dedicated to helping people with running their hoerswerd collections.
Admin of—and Reviewer for—Seattle's Angels, a group about unearthing lost treasures.
Admin of The World-Building Alliance, for all the non-pony in the pony.
Admin of The Last Roundup, a group that aims to be a viable, quality-based alternative to the Feature Box.
Admin of The EqD Outside Insight Group, a competition based around non-ponies which I was a judge for.
Admin of Fallout: Equestria, the greatest m/m shipgroup on the site.
Admin of Remnants of Exploration, because I always enjoyed a good Train Wreck.
Former admin of the TWE, may she rest in peace.
Admin of The Admin Group, because if I'm gonna be part of so many groups, I might as well help even more people with theirs.
Founder of Tonking with Pones, in which we shoot down planes with things clearly not designed to shoot down planes.
Contributor to The Mojave Express. Somehow. Not really sure when that happened.
Contributor to The Harem of Wanderer D, because that guy's basically Robert Downey Junior, I mean damn.
Contributor to Austraeoh, because literally everyone in that group is.

Bad Horse can no longer hate my bio ;_;

(A.K.A How to deal with differing opinions)

Look, if I commented on your story and you disagree with it, that's fine.
What's not fine is deleting constructive criticism and sending angry PMs to those who think you could do better. If I'm being dumb, tell me so. If I don't think I was, I'll tell you so too. We'll have a gay old time and all that.
But be a man rather than a mouse, aye?

So. What have we learned?
Lots of control.
No screaming or hollering.
Yes. And most importantly?
Listening to other people, instead of sticking my head up my ass and refusing to acknowledge negative comments!
Right! So now you know the elements of a good author, go be one!

Even though it's been a long time (just over six years now), I wanted to thank you for approving my third overall and first some-what successful story, as it would give me the confidence and joy of seeing others read it and lead me to, over time, improve my writing to where it is now! You're also the last one to ever approve one of my stories as the next time I would return to writing, the auto-approved feature was added.

I see you've been retired now, but just wanted to hop in for this brief thanks! Maybe it'll bring a small smile to you, maybe it won't, but in any case, have a wonderful rest of your day! :twilightsmile:

I thought that if another author picked up the story, you might want to be involved with the continuation, or that said author might've reached out to you; that's all.

I know that sometimes a person wants to keep playing the same character over and over, such as James Woods wanting to voice Hades whenever Disney does something with Hercules.

I also know that sometimes a person wants nothing to do with a role or a part/job after doing it once.

I didn't know if any of the above applied to you, and I wanted to ask, both out of respect, and because I was hoping you would know something about a continuation.

Anyway, I won't bug you about it anymore. Thanks for replying back to me these times. 🙂

I was an editor. But why would that mean I know what some random author has done?

The author left 8 years ago.

According to the author's notes, you were somehow involved with the story.

I just found "MIA" by author "Gravity's Rainboom."

It was left unfinished; do you know if anyone else picked it up and continued it?

I need your approval pls validate me bby

you seem like a massive nerd


Me: I'm not signing, I'm just gonna ask where these Alicorn OCs can be found.
