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

I remember a Jahr oder Mehr ago, link got the mickey taken out of him Von 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 gepostet as soapboxes, because they are not original work, which was the point of soapboxes in the first place.

You'll notice that, when Du 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 Videos gepostet on spots that are broken, and for that, I Berichten them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously gepostet every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which Videos may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots Von 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 Videos 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 Artikel 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 Du Mitmachen it?", oder something along those lines. Picks like these aren't really opinions and hold little gumption in terms of an interesting Umfrage oder contrasting Ansichten 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 Bilder from some of my Favorit spots for the last couple of days and I always rate, save and Kommentar (in that order strangely enough) and I was really surprised at some of the bad Kommentare 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 oder Willow from the Buffy spot. Whether the image is a portrayal of the character oder the person some people have left nasty Kommentare calling them 'ugly' and so on, if Du are a Fan of a spot then I'm assuming that Du like the person, character oder people surrounding...

I don't really know how to start this as I've only been on Fanpop for a little over a Monat now, but it's just 'my opinion' regarding the spots that 'double up' as I call it. When I first joined Fanpop I noticed there were quiet a few double up spots such as Buffy, Spuffy, Angel – Jäger der Finsternis and Bangel, there's at least two Disney spots that I know of and many spin off spots such as Enchanted, Bambi and Ariel, there's many Icon and Avatar spots, there is double up spots and triple spots, but my point is I don't care because if I'm a Fan of say: Buffy (and I am) I'll Mitmachen 'everything' I can find related to that piece, whether I double up oder not because what I can't find on one spot I'll find it on another.
Many of Du may not agree with me and I don't expect anyone to do so, maybe some of Du like a few spots on the one topic and some of Du don't, I like Fanpop just the way it is, the Mehr spots, the better.

I've only been with Fanpop 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 Favorit videos, worked out how to use my mailbox, contributed to a few spots, created my own spot and made a few Fan friends. However when we had the Kürzlich image problem things became Mehr 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 Bilder (even though that...

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

I stumbled across fanfly's Frage about the link for this feature and answered the Frage with a Liste of five things I think are the most important to keep in mind. Urged Von germany123 to make it into a soapbox, I present to Du the Official Rules of the Fanpop Antwort Feature.

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

I am so sick of all the nastiness and sarcasm that goes on in Fanpop, through the forums, via Fan pick Fragen and Kommentare left regarding Bilder 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 Fanpop on a few occasions because of 'some' peoples attitudes here and I'm over it.
I have been on Fanpop for almost a Jahr 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 oder see people being nasty to other people here I will Berichten them and I'll name all of the 'nasties'...

I decided to write this Artikel because I have seen Fragen 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 oder no content oder the topic isn't exactly a Favorit of mine, even if I thought it would be.
I do admit that I feel like a real mean hündin when I decide to leave a spot and I'm not here to redeem myself oder make excuses, but to help other Fans who are in a similar situation as I am and also hopefully for some feedback, Kommentare and ideas.
Some of us Mitmachen spots because the person that created...

I have created quiet a few spots now and I Liebe contributions of any kind, but I am surprised at how many people will pick on 'any' Fan pick Frage 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 Frage such as: 'Do Du Like The Movie Enchanted?' and someone will answer 'Never Seen It' oder another question, say - 'Which Bambi Foto Is Your Favorite?' only for someone to come up with 'I Hate Bambi.'
It's not whether Du are a fan...

As my first Artikel on Fanpop had to do with 'my idea' of Fanpop 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 Fanpop every day, if I have the time.

Monday: Work on the spot I've created.

Tuesday: Contribute to other spots and Mitmachen new ones.

Wednesday: Check my Profil and learn Mehr about my fans.

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

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

Saturday: Have one Tag 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 Tag 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 Stunde 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 Bilder 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, Fanpop is supposed to be a happy, fun place where people can make friends, share opinions, Mitmachen and create spots all of which is a great way to express oneself, as well as contributing to other spots.
In my opinion Fanpop can teach us to be creative, to share with others, express ourselves and...

I think that this Artikel belongs here in opposed to 'Fanpop Spots' because it is a Fanpop Etiquette issue, as well as a spot oder club issue.
When Du Mitmachen a spot it appears in your Updates as one of your spots and so do the ones Du create, I've heard some people say that a spot that Du created 'isn't your spot' now I know that the spots belong to Fanpop and I realize that 'most' of Du would be very proud of your creations just as I am of mine.
However if Du are the spot creator then 'in my opinion' the spot is yours to some degree, Du create the spot, only Du 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 Fanpop picks. As evidenced Von link, however, some believe it to be intentional.

Now I'm not trying to whine about wording oder 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 Du find these things odd?

The type of picks...

I've been with Fanpop 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 Zufällig spot' but it's going strong and gaining Fans 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 Fanpop place, people...
