Double you double you tee es de ?

I'm afraid that I am me

Elsewhere on the webs

Pi Beta Q, my Blogger blog. Updates sporadically, I'm usually just as likely to blog here.
Sufficient Velocity forums.
SpaceBattles forums. Activity is sporadic; I'm more likely to be on SV now.
reddit. I haven't been there in a long while.
Twitter: deprecated.
Diaspora: deprecated, and abandoned.
Facebook: deleted. I owe the world a blogpost about that still.
eMail: Haha. If you're authorized to email me, you already have my email address. Conversely, if you have my email address, you're implicitly authorized to email me. I check it often, but I'm not always timely dealing with it.

Bionicle

If you're here because of my username, try Bionicle Crossovers instead. Bionicle notwithstanding I consider ponies my first fandom.

about:tracking

I'm still updating my bookshelves. The below predates the sitewide bookshelves update. However, as of this writing it's still true.


I have some weird opinions about some things. One of these things is the tracking system.

The tracking system is labeled 'Favorites'. I don't use it that way. I use it for, well, tracking stories I want to keep track of. This includes my favorite stories, but it also includes stuff I'm reading and want to keep reading when it updates, and stuff I want to be able to find again easily for whatever reason (including stuff I don't necessarily think that highly of).

The fact that it can improve something's rating is a sometimes-annoying side effect.

This is Not the "I'm Leaving" Blog Post · 1:38am Jul 21st, 2017

I've had a variation of this blog post kicking around in my head for a while now, but I'm finally getting around to writing and posting it.

I haven't been around the fandom for like ...two years? Yeah, thereabouts at least. I'm not "am leaving". I've been away for a while, and am just finally announcing that fact. There's a couple of you that ...not so much I miss, as I'm kicking myself for not keeping in better touch with, if that makes sense? (Hi Ghost, hi Causal.)

Recommendations

I impose a simple rule on my recommendations boxes: I only put it up here if I would read it at least twice. Since it's a bit of a crapshot to tell whether I "would" read anything twice, in practice I only put things that I have read twice. These are all things that I really do think are just that good, dang it.

These aren't the only things I recommend, of course. I also have a folder-full of recommendations, if you like. My "Favorites" list is currently not a reliable source of recommendations, because for a while it was being my "I've read this" list.


Once upon a time, the 'Favorites' boxes used to pop up the short description when you moused over a story. Apparently, they don't do that anymore. You can get the short descriptions to show up if you put the favorites box in your narrow column instead, but I felt that the big picture and extra screen space was more valuable.

You need to get in the habit of checking around corners before you stick your fool head around them, mate.

You're watching me. Creepy. I will look for you around corners!

Noted. Not loaded yet, however, because I really need to go to bed.

Careful, comrade... you almost blew your inequine cover there :ajsmug:
