I hate chain letters in my e-mail box. I do not want to see them in my फैन्पॉप updates.

I remember a साल या और ago, link got the mickey taken out of him द्वारा DrDevience and others for posting unoriginal chain letters and Rush Limbaugh transcripts as soapboxes. He acted accordingly and removed those articles, and though I think we came down a little unfairly on him, I agreed that chain letters should not be पोस्टेड as soapboxes, because they are not original work, which was the point of soapboxes in the first place.

You'll notice that, when आप post a new article, there is a drop-box asking what...

So this may seem a little "anal" of me, but I run into a lot of वीडियो पोस्टेड on spots that are broken, and for that, I रिपोर्ट them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously पोस्टेड every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which वीडियो may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots द्वारा reporting broken content, but it is very time consuming...

As a tip, and to make this job easier for people who contribute a lot, broken वीडियो often have a gray video camera as the image instead of...

Just a little heads up.

It has been going on for awhile, but I've noticed it especially most recently. The bottom line of this entire लेख lays in its title: pick's aren't made for advertising.

Repetitively, picks are being created that ask "I've just made a spot for ___, will आप शामिल होइए it?", या something along those lines. Picks like these aren't really opinions and hold little gumption in terms of an interesting मतदान या contrasting देखा गया on a subject. Picks like these are being made to solicit new spots, which isn't what picks are for.

There is a fabulous link, a link, and a link dedicated...

I've been rating तस्वीरें from some of my प्रिय spots for the last couple of days and I always rate, save and टिप्पणी दे (in that order strangely enough) and I was really surprised at some of the bad टिप्पणियाँ towards images, not to the person who added them but to a certain celebrity e.g. Sarah Jessica Parker from The Sex And The City spot या Willow from the Buffy spot. Whether the image is a portrayal of the character या the person some people have left nasty टिप्पणियाँ calling them 'ugly' and so on, if आप are a प्रशंसक of a spot then I'm assuming that आप like the person, character या people surrounding...

I don't really know how to start this as I've only been on फैन्पॉप for a little over a महीना now, but it's just 'my opinion' regarding the spots that 'double up' as I call it. When I first joined फैन्पॉप I noticed there were quiet a few double up spots such as Buffy, Spuffy, एंजल and Bangel, there's at least two डिज़्नी spots that I know of and many spin off spots such as Enchanted, Bambi and Ariel, there's many आइकन and अवतार spots, there is double up spots and triple spots, but my point is I don't care because if I'm a प्रशंसक of say: Buffy (and I am) I'll शामिल होइए 'everything' I can find related to that piece, whether I double up या not because what I can't find on one spot I'll find it on another.
Many of आप may not agree with me and I don't expect anyone to do so, maybe some of आप like a few spots on the one topic and some of आप don't, I like फैन्पॉप just the way it is, the और spots, the better.
I've only been with फैन्पॉप since mid June this year, it was a bit confusing at first but I joined a few spots, made a few pics, saved some of my प्रिय videos, worked out how to use my mailbox, contributed to a few spots, created my own spot and made a few प्रशंसक friends. However when we had the हाल का image problem things became और confusing, I couldn't ad pictures to other spots and couldn't work on my own spot so I'd log in to check my mail and the image dilemma and log straight back out again.
Then tonight (after MUCH boredom) I realized it wasn't just about the तस्वीरें (even though that...

Hello, seekers of good जवाब to burning questions! It has come to my attention that an official guide to using the new जवाब feature is necessary in order to prevent abuse of this fabulous new fun feature.

I stumbled across fanfly's सवाल about the link for this feature and answered the सवाल with a सूची of five things I think are the most important to keep in mind. Urged द्वारा germany123 to make it into a soapbox, I present to आप the Official Rules of the फैन्पॉप जवाब Feature.

1) If आप know the answer to the question, don't ask. This should be fairly clear already, but जवाब are...

I am so sick of all the nastiness and sarcasm that goes on in Fanpop, through the forums, via प्रशंसक pick सवालों and टिप्पणियाँ left regarding तस्वीरें etc.
And I'm sick of being so nice about it when there's only so much one person can take, I've almost left फैन्पॉप on a few occasions because of 'some' peoples attitudes here and I'm over it.
I have been on फैन्पॉप for almost a साल now and I'm not nasty to people, I get on here and do my thing and contribute as much as I can, but if I cop anymore shit या see people being nasty to other people here I will रिपोर्ट them and I'll name all of the 'nasties'...

I decided to write this लेख because I have seen सवालों being asked about unsubscribing from spots and I have dropped a few spots myself.
The only two reasons I will drop a spot is if the spot has little या no content या the topic isn't exactly a प्रिय of mine, even if I thought it would be.
I do admit that I feel like a real mean कुतिया, मतलबी when I decide to leave a spot and I'm not here to redeem myself या make excuses, but to help other प्रशंसकों who are in a similar situation as I am and also hopefully for some feedback, टिप्पणियाँ and ideas.
Some of us शामिल होइए spots because the person that created...

I have created quiet a few spots now and I प्यार contributions of any kind, but I am surprised at how many people will pick on 'any' प्रशंसक pick सवाल just for the sake of it even if they don't like the subject at hand.
Perfect examples of this behavior is what I have noticed not only on spots that I've created but many other spots as well, someone may put up a सवाल such as: 'Do आप Like The Movie Enchanted?' and someone will answer 'Never Seen It' या another question, say - 'Which Bambi चित्र Is Your Favorite?' only for someone to come up with 'I Hate Bambi.'
It's not whether आप are a fan...

As my first लेख on फैन्पॉप had to do with 'my idea' of फैन्पॉप etiquette I decided to write a part two as to how I would like to put my days into different sections eg: what to do on फैन्पॉप every day, if I have the time.

Monday: Work on the spot I've created.

Tuesday: Contribute to other spots and शामिल होइए new ones.

Wednesday: Check my प्रोफ़ाइल and learn और about my fans.

Thursday: Go through every video, picture, article, वॉलपेपर etc. and save and rate my favorites.

Friday: Find new material to add to all of my प्रिय spots.

Saturday: Have one दिन to go all around the whole of fanpop, I may not do anything but I might find something new.

Sunday: Try not to turn the computer on, who am I kidding?

And almost every दिन I must remember to check my mail, it seems like a lot to do but it's fun anyway and if you're anything like me, someone who can stay on the computer for hours at a time? remember to take breaks at least every half an घंटा to avoid headaches. Have Fun.
I’ve read up a lot on ‘image credit’ and peoples perceptions of the right and wrong ways to credit तस्वीरें but personally I think some people are going about it in the wrong way. I don’t expect people to ‘like me’ for what I’m about to say and I don’t care because as I’ve always stated, फैन्पॉप is supposed to be a happy, fun place where people can make friends, share opinions, शामिल होइए and create spots all of which is a great way to express oneself, as well as contributing to other spots.
In my opinion फैन्पॉप can teach us to be creative, to share with others, express ourselves and...

I think that this लेख belongs here in opposed to 'Fanpop Spots' because it is a फैन्पॉप Etiquette issue, as well as a spot या club issue.
When आप शामिल होइए a spot it appears in your अपडेट्स as one of your spots and so do the ones आप create, I've heard some people say that a spot that आप created 'isn't your spot' now I know that the spots belong to फैन्पॉप and I realize that 'most' of आप would be very proud of your creations just as I am of mine.
However if आप are the spot creator then 'in my opinion' the spot is yours to some degree, आप create the spot, only आप can change the banner, icon...

So I tried to think of a catchier title, but I figured I might as well just call it what it is. I have seen instances of (what I believe to be unintentional) heterosexism in several फैन्पॉप picks. As evidenced द्वारा link, however, some believe it to be intentional.

Now I'm not trying to whine about wording या being politically correct. In fact, I'm not politically correct in the slightest, as anyone who knows me well enough will tell you. And this issue isn't really a big deal, I just wanted to make people aware of it and ask their opinions on it. So do आप find these things odd?

The type of picks...

I've been with फैन्पॉप for almost five months now and at first I thought it was a really happy place, I've made ten spots and all of them are doing well, I save, rate and always comment, however I've finally seen the nasty side of Fanpop, my first spot copped a lot of flack because it was classed as 'another बिना सोचे समझे spot' but it's going strong and gaining प्रशंसकों as is most 'other' duplicate spots I've seen, all of my spots have been a great form of creativity and experience for me, it sounds too good to be true, AND IT IS because there is some really nasty people on our happy फैन्पॉप place, people...
