I Weave, Therefore I Am
« on: September 12, 2013, 08:37:39 PM »
Okay, relative newbie, but I'm going for it.

I have a spider on a necklace, the sign of the spinner of stories, catcher of dreams, binder of ideas. Time to earn it. Therefore, be it known...

I declare myself for the Weavers, and will endeavor to show myself worthy.

9.17.13 Update - Adding Requirements and showing progress.

1. Write 3 inter-related submissions and link them together. <-- Check!

-->Sarah Voltaire
-->The Song That Doesn't End, Part One
-->Ellen Lancaster

These submissions must:
* Each receive at least 3 votes
<-- Check!
* Maintain a score of 3.25 or higher <-- Check!
* Have the "Weavers Guild" freetext added to them <-- Check!

2. Leave at least 5 ideas on other authors' submissions. <-- Check!
1 --> The Tower of NON
2 --> The Needwain
3 --> 09.18.2013 Ravenman
4 --> 03.12.2014 Valadaars First Submission Advice
5 --> 04.17.2014 Flirting Dress

3. Suggest 5 relevant submissions on other authors' subs. 1 down, 4 to go
1 --> Suggested Overly-Attached Chainmail link to Flirting Dress

4. Maintain at least a "3" in intelligence and dexterity in your guild stats (you may have to pull off amazing feats of contortion to get such disparate subs to mesh together nicely).

Welcome, prospect.  I look forward to reading your work.  I suggest copying/pasting the entrance requirements (Apprenticeship Application: Level 1) into the first post of this thread, and updating as appropriate with links to your work and the subs you commented/posted ideas on.  It helps ensure that I find all of your work and get you credited with guild membership as quickly as possible.

Good luck, and weave well.

I've updated my first post. The only thing yet to read are three ideas on others' subs.

I'm planning three linked subs, but they'll also link to a fourth sub I wrote before declaring myself (because I'm an idiot and did it in the wrong order. :P )

One of the three is written, but then I got distracted writing an unrelated idea.

Thanks.

Of course... since then, I've slacked off. A lot.

Part of it is unavoidable. I've had to devote more attention to the conversion I'm doing in my game and such. But even when I have spare time I've been remiss in working on my submissions.

Must.... write.... submission....

Don't worry, a lot of us shift in and out of the Citadel, incl. myself. I'm in the same boat as you in terms of needing to write more submissions. If you check my Author Homepage, I have like 10+ subs owing in various stages of completion.

Hmm. I work on google docs, but maybe I should post all my half-finished subs here.

not sure if you noticed but you can set the visibility of your sub through drop-down on the right on the submission page. it's set to normal by default but for unfinished subs, you can set it to draft if you want (just so you can't get comments that bite your head off due to incompleteness as you are wont to get here

After a too-long delay, I have made some progress, and updated my original post. More to come.

Longspeak, I will try to vote on the two remaining subs of the lot soon. Also, I realise you are relatively new and therefore have mistaken some of the functions like suggesting a submission. The third requirement of suggesting 5 relevant subs on other authors' subs have to be done through the "suggest a submission" button that's located just above where the comments start (you have to enter the suggested sub's sub id as opposed to mentioning the similarity b/w the 2 subs in the user-submitted ideas section).

I did that already. Do I need to do it from both ends? And if the authors delete them does that not count?

If you look at the suggested submissions section on Overly-Attached Chainmail, you see my suggestion linking to Flirting Dress. Does Flirting Dress also need to link back?

Oh, then maybe it's a mistunderstanding issue, I thought you suggested the Over-attached Chainmail sub to the Flirting Dress sub but maybe you meant the other way around, I only glanced thru the Flirting Dress sub. All right, I double-checked and yes, it's a misunderstanding. It's fine, you don't have to do both, once is enough. You're nearly there, still 4 more suggested subs to go.

Just saw the following sub that could use a linkback (Dossta did not explicitly forbid collaboration so I don't think I'm really cheating):
The Voice Of Blissful Enlightenment by Maggot, sub that could be linked to was id 2279 as seen in author comment

I'm fairly good at finding suggested subs (or used to be) so I'll keep coming up to post until we get you into the Weavers officially. I'm sure that Dossta will be more than thrilled when he comes back to find some new blood in the Guild (we two had always been at any rate back in the days when we were the only two Weavers and then we were very lucky to get Val and then Elbin on board).

I've been too busy weaving to bother about proving I can weave. :P

Perhaps this summer...

Well, now that official Guild leader is away, we're much pretty running amok by ourselves and I've already thought of you as a Weaver so formalities do not matter over much. Just that you told me you're not official the other day and I just came across this easy linkback the other day while doing Strolenati Sundays.

I figured. And I appreciate it but it also feel like super cheating. :P Especially given the link is actually referenced by the author and just not physically linked. :P

Ah well... will keep you posted if I run across any other more legit links. I think I found all of mine just through random browsing and then remembering other subs and now I'm back more active on the Citadel (at least in terms of commenting).

Voting and the Citadel by youngOne2 to Scras' What's in a Vote and Mourn's Voting Practice. Not really alike to either of the latter 2 that are essentially articles about individual's voting practices but still relevant in that it focuses on the voting system. At any rate, Scras' and Mourn's article can be linked to each other.

101 Chinese Modern names and 30 Chinese Archaic Names (both written by me) linked to Val's The Citadels Name Exchange.
