Thanks lovelies. :)
I’m here to alert you to the fact that we’re having some really big problems with the queue. In short:
Unfortunately, we are at our wits’ end with this. I’ve looked into plug-in fixes to no avail.
What this means is that our best option is to move everything in the queue (which is approximately 180 quotes long) into the Drafts box and then manually move them back in the correct order. This is not a fast process, and I’m afraid that the Drafts box doesn’t keep things in order particularly well, either.
I think what’s going to happen is that everything that’s in the queue now is going to get scrambled. Please don’t worry about your quote; it’s in there, it just isn’t going to publish right away.
We’re really sorry about this. Really sorry.
PS if anybody has any ideas on how we might be able to fix this, we’d love to hear them. Please drop us a line in our inbox. Thanks!
It’s come to my attention that the Paolo Coelho quotation was misspelled (it’s Coelho, not Coehlo). I’ve fixed the tag and will try and remember to remake the quote later this evening, but bear with me as I might forget.
EDIT: Okay. I’ve changed it again because his name is Paulo, not Paolo. I’ll definitely try and remember to change the whole thing when I get home. Sorry about that!!
I’m really sorry, guys, those two posts that just got posted were meant to go to my personal blog. D: I’ve now deleted them. Sorry about that!
We are currently looking for more Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Gryffindor quotes. In that order.
xo Carmen and Fiona
If you have, please let us know. I’m collecting them so that I can go back and fix them when I get a chance.
The first thing I’ll do is change the tag, but I am going to eventually go back and change the photo as well.
What you need to send me is the current citation (so that I can find it via our tags), part of the quote (in case there are multiple quotes by that author), and the correct citation.
I’ll go through and confirm that you’ve got the correct citation and then fix.
(PS politeness is always appreciated.)
It’s come to our attention that the recent Gryffindor M*A*S*H quote is incorrectly cited to Hawkeye Piecer rather than Hawkeye Pierce. I’ve changed the tag, but I’m out of town and away from my computer until next week and won’t be able to fix the image until then.
At that point, I will make an effort to remember to change it, but if I don’t, then I’m sorry. I am a busy girl and this won’t be the first image with a typo in it.
Thanks to the people who let us know.
If you’ve gone to our submissions page in the last I don’t actually know how long, you may have noticed that you couldn’t get to the bottom of the ask box in order to press “Ask,” which would explain why a lot of you have been submitting via fanmail.
I’m really sorry — I didn’t know this was happening until today. I’ve fixed it, so now you should be able to submit just fine via the link above (that’s your cue to stop submitting via fanmail, haha).
Let me know if it’s not working for you!
(PS, you don’t have to resubmit if you’ve submitted via fanmail. Thanks!)
Please do not submit your quotes more than once. If you think your quote has gotten lost somewhere along the way, by all means you are welcome to ask us (if you plan on doing so, do it non-anonymously and send the quote, citation, and house so we know where we might find it).
But please don’t submit your quotation several times, even/especially if it’s over a long period of time, as we are then more likely to forget that they have been made and make them all over again, which we try to avoid.
Thank you. :)
It happened again. I didn’t notice until just now, but a couple of cycles ago, we lost a Hufflepuff. I’ve added a second Hufflepuff into the next cycle so it will post two.
Sorry about that.
Something’s up with the queue. In keeping with our rule about the same number of everything being posted, the next few posts will be Gryffindor, then Hufflepuff, then Ravenclaw, then Gryffindor again so we don’t have more Slytherins than the others.
Thanks, and sorry about that!
Just wanted to let you know that we’ve pulled the queue back to only post 5 times per day (it was set to 9 before). Mostly this is because Fiona and I are about to get really busy and this way, we can have a little bit of extra time to make stuff before it has to get posted.
I’ve removed the moratorium on Slytherin quotations, so if you care to submit any, go here!
Please remember the submission guidelines and submit like this:
HOUSE: “Quote.” —Author/speaker/band/artist/screenwriter/playwright/fanfiction author@hosting site/etc (Character: Book/film/play/song/TV show/fanfiction title: Episode/fandom)
(Please note that I’ve added fanfictions to the template. I know it looks complicated, but don’t worry, if you mess it up, we’ll ask you to get us the correct information!)
Also, please don’t forget that you are able to check to see if your quote has been made already by searching the author’s name in the search box on the sidebar of our blog.
PS: I would appreciate for you not to flood the inbox, but I do understand if you’ve been waiting to submit. :)
When you decide to submit a quotation, PLEASE do a quick tag check to see if the quote has already been made!
For instance, if you are attempting to submit the quote, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends,” by Martin Luther King, Jr, you are probably best served by searching “martin luther king jr” (remembering that Tumblr does not allow for commas or dashes in tags).
(That quote, by the way, has already been made for Gryffindor, so please don’t submit it.)
Of course, we don’t expect you to be perfect at these. The tags are imperfect, and sometimes we choose to tag them in one way when they could be tagged another (for example, “winston churchill” versus “sir winston churchill” — we use “sir winston churchill”). We generally know when quotes have already been made, and can find it for you and let you know (if you’ve submitted off anonymous), but again, we’re not perfect at this, so sometimes stuff slips through.
You’ll notice there are multiple of the Gryffindor quote, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face,” by Eleanor Roosevelt, and that’s our fault for not catching it.
Basically all I want to say is, do a check, but also please forgive us those quotes that get done multiple times.
