CALLING ALL AUTHORS ... DO YOU MIND?

I am creating a cute quiz application at Facebook, "How do You Sploof". The results will show people what kind of quiz suits them at Sploofus. In the results, I will be referring people to take quizzes by certain authors here eg If a Facebooker turns out to be a 'Couch Potato', then I refer them to Swiper, Maurlin etc. Does anybody have a problem with this? Let me know what you think about this new way to get people to convert to lil old us. Here's the list ...

(Let me know if I have missed anybody)

I also supply a link for each category to bring them to the month's most popular. Happy to promote people and Sploofus, NOT just myself

I will omit any names who choose not to be involved. Please let me know ASAP. I will launch it very soon.

Kind regards, Ricky Boy

Ricky - I have a big problem with it.

I realize that your intentions are excellent, and that publicizing Sploofus is a wonderful thing.

That said, I don't know about flinging around Sploof-names out there in public. It doesn't seem to me to be something that we should be doing. And also, why those folk? There are hundreds of quiz authors who are excellent who you have not tapped on your list. Should these authors feel slighted that you don't think they are worthy of mention, or should they feel glad that you have not used their name on the internet? I actually don't know the answer to that question.

I just think it is a very bad move.

No thanks Rick. Rather you didn't include me. Thanks.

I don't see a major problem with it, but i do understand others may have concerns. Count me in.

I wonder if you guys know this. Our threads/posts here can be accessed through Google and outside of Sploofus.

I had no idea - I thought what happens on the Mile, stays on the Mile. But no. This is not a closed forum.

Alvandy told me once he had tried to find information about some subject and had asked in a thread once, but no one had known the answer.

I thought I'd go Google the idea and see if I could investigate some.

His post was linked in Google search and I went right to it.

I was NOT logged into Sploofus at the time, nor did I have Sploofus open in a window at all.

Searching for a thread may not work well in here, but apparently it does work out there. Maybe it was a fluke, but it was there.

Any listing for both Movies and Television should include:

I think it'll be ok with him, and I will check. His work is some of the best on those subjects.

I am soooo sorry for treading on toes. We are not untouchable her, Janice is right. I am a bit tired of that attitude towards me (not just you)

I am trying to show people how good this place is, NOT hog it all to ourselves. Thanks for the PMs from people who said they dunno what everyone else's problem is. I dunno either. Truly.

People should not feel duped that I could not remember their quizzes. Rather, honored that I give them a mention like this. BUT I understand and respect the wishes of y'all.

(My bad NY, You are in for sure - I totally forgot about some people as I hardly take quizzes any more. I looked up the monthly category lists. That is how I came up with the names.

I wish everyone here would get off their 'fanny' and do something proactive like me from time to time.

Thanks again for the support and encouragement.
Kind regards
Rick

Okay ... New list. Those who wish to participate can stand up and be counted. Please don't hold it against me if I forgot you (again)
BTW - I am going for people who are proactively writing NOW. Not back then. Cheers

Any objections? Speak now or forever hold your piece

PS Alice, it would be much more helpful if you would highlight who I missed that should have been included. I already spent considerable time on this research. So, PM me, please. Shall I slot you in somewhere? PM me ASAP

Did you guys notice we're sitting at 59,589 members as of this morning? How rocking is that?

(Who knows, thanks to Dyno I may win that guess for Jan. 1, 2010)

I guess I'm more a misc author? Hubbie Haydn is tickled he's found in so many places, as no one hardly ever plays his "on the roads" and he researches them to death! Neat!

When do you need to know for sure about this? I need a little time to think this one over if that's ok? My computer has been acting strange the last couple of days so I didn't see the post until this morning. I feel honored being included in two different venures though....
