[13:29:11] <Bytram> n1: g'day!
[13:30:17] <n1> also hi Blackmoore
[13:36:09] -!- Woods has quit [Quit: Web client closed]
[13:37:22] <Blackmoore> mornin
[13:39:33] <n1> dropped the ball this morning, 5 hours with no stories :|

[13:40:22] <Blackmoore> o.O
[13:40:54] <Bytram> n1: yeah, I stopped by last night but spent a couple hours dealing with some comment replies
[13:41:34] <Blackmoore> n1 - how does the roll out work? does it go live at specified times, or just go live on a set time per hour?
[13:41:43] <n1> we set specific times
[13:41:58] <n1> generally we try and go an hour to an hour and a half between stories
[13:42:24] <n1> weekend pushes 2 hours more due to lack of submissions
[13:42:50] <n1> and the site is generally a lot less active over the weekend
[13:44:09] <n1> Bytram, i wish i had a good excuse like that ;) - i was playing computer games and didnt look before i went to bed.
[13:45:20] <Bytram> n1: pm?
[13:45:24] <n1> k
[14:05:13] <Woods> n1: I know right? What is your latest poison? I have been into Archeage recently.
[14:08:42] <n1> i picked up mount & blade: warband + napoleonic wars last night on humblestore
[14:09:14] <n1> and also farcry3 deluxe edition
[14:09:43] <n1> even though i got my ass kicked on mount&blade, it feels like $15 well spent for all of that.
[14:10:40] <Blackmoore> :) guys, it's ok. besides we all need some downtime.
[14:11:29] * Bytram channels some disco: 'Get Down, Get Down, Get down to my place baybeee!" =)
[14:11:37] <Blackmoore> anyway - i wont be much use the rest of the week (work. this is quarter end. and it is already busy)
[14:12:15] <Blackmoore> but If i can pop in some submissions i will.
[14:17:24] <n1> quality submissions are always appreciated
[14:17:48] <n1> if i didn't know better, i'd think some people threw things at the submission box
[14:18:08] <n1> and it just lands there in whatever way they copy/paste or their brain farts it out
[14:27:44] <Blackmoore> it happens. I think we have a few submitters who have little skill with writing; and sadly that's going to be an editing team decision to rewite; or reject.
[14:29:27] <n1> and then suffer the wrath of the editorial conspiracy!
[15:23:56] <Blackmoore> um is tangomargarine right about the spelling errors.. and would we consider foisting the job of"grammer nazi" onto him :P
[15:24:31] <n1> i think it's been fixed now
[15:24:52] <n1> martyb fixed the summary, i fixed the headline and it seems ncommander also made a fix too
[15:25:09] <NCommander> n1, fixed the captialization
[15:25:12] * NCommander is pretty out of it
[15:25:44] <n1> i know the feeling
[15:25:54] <Bytram> fixed ammmendmment, turned '-' into &mdash; and some other typos
[15:26:04] <Bytram> then I saw the comment. :/
[15:26:30] <Bytram> NCommander: glad to see ya, if even for a bit. I've been procrastinating on jumping in the shower and going to my day job.
[15:26:43] <NCommander> eh
[15:26:52] <n1> i dont actually understand the summary really.
[15:27:17] <Bytram> cannot procratinate any longer... thoughts are with you in the great not-yet-white north. =)

[19:28:44] <Blackmoore> I do not appologize for the submission i just sent.
[19:34:04] <n1> very nice, im assuming the "the case was still open..." is supposed to be outside the blockquote
[19:34:14] <n1> as it's your writing
[19:34:48] <Blackmoore> yeah it should have been
[19:35:37] <n1> I really enjoyed reading the opening line. Nicely done :)
[19:41:05] <Blackmoore> hehe over the top i suppose but the style is stuck on me for a few weeks. i have to get something down and get it out of my system.
[20:15:53] <n1> I like it, i hope everyone else enjoys the effort.
[20:25:35] <Blackmoore> :P
[20:26:05] <Blackmoore> well considering i usually get complaints about grammer and puctuation
[20:32:07] <n1> lol
[21:05:15] <Woods> Blackmoore, jokingly, of course...
[21:05:25] <Woods> Blackmoore, I hold your grammar and punctuation in the highest contempt. I consider it no only an affront to the entire English language, but also an abomination to all written communication, past and present. On a scale from one to ten, your spelling rates "Eldritch horror". People who see you bending the realities of syntax around impossibly oriented verb-noun arrangements are instantly hurled into unfathomable dementia coupled with enou
[21:05:31] <Woods> ng but their insanity.
[21:12:30] <n1> lest we forget shakespear butchered what was the english language of the day, and its has since evolved past shakespearean norms.
[21:13:18] <n1> which really annoys me when most people seem to ignore or dismiss those things, and are convinced every nuance they remember from school is the one and only true way of writing english.
[21:13:21] <Woods> I am just sad that it chopped off the ending. :(
[21:13:40] <n1> and those things will vary depending on what generation you're from.
[21:13:48] <n1> try harder next time ;)
[21:13:51] <Woods> n1, all I know is that MY English is right (Oklahoman English) and everyone else is wrong.
[21:14:04] <Woods> I worked really hard on that.
[21:14:17] <n1> being only born and raised in england, i'll have to take your word for that.
[21:14:22] <Woods> lol
[21:14:30] <n1> :p
[21:15:10] <n1> it's a colourful language.
[21:15:18] <n1> or do i mean colorful...
[21:15:20] <Woods> It sure is
[21:15:23] <Woods> No
[21:15:25] <Woods> noooo!
[21:15:56] <n1> lol
[21:16:23] <n1> i'm surprised at the lack of response to the 'sleep' story
[21:16:33] <n1> maybe everyone interested in it decided to take a nap
[21:21:04] <Blackmoore> Woods: that was the best complement ever
[21:22:00] <Woods> XD I am glad you liked it.
[21:22:16] <Woods> I feel like I really reeled it in with the bending realities part.
[21:31:02] <Blackmoore> i've been reading laundry files lately. really want to combine eldrich horror with Noir.
