2009-08-13 [Chimes]: My feet are staying firmly on the ground tonight. :P
2009-08-13 [Aeolynn]: Why are you sorry Chimes? lol... it's Mort that needs to apologize to Ravendust >=P
2009-08-13 [Chimes]: I didn't mean that comment. I meant the comment after it, it seems rather harsh compared to my normal commenting style.
2009-08-13 [nehirwen]: My feet are a bit wobly atm.. O.o
2009-08-13 [Aeolynn]: Well I'm serious about Mort's apology, it was really rude of him, especially to another person trying to become part of crew, especially that he himself is also going towards that same goal.
2009-08-13 [Nioniel]: I know it's not keeping with the subject of the current conversation, but I edited my appy again.
2009-08-13 [Chimes]: Thank you for letting us know, Phoenix.
2009-08-13 [Mortified Penguin]: I must express my sincerest apologies to [Ravendust] for my egregious behavior. I'm sorry for doing that thing that I did. It's just... I was freaking out because I had just finished snorting a dime bag of cocaine... Now, I know that's no excuse, but perhaps we can all get past this and become friends. ...*rubs teeth*...
2009-08-14 [Ravendust]: I appreciate the apology, thank you.
2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: Even though it was weird O.o?
2009-08-14 [Mortified Penguin]: Shh, man... sshhhhh...... *waves hands around*... whoa...
2009-08-15 [Nioniel]: :) No problem. Is it a good thing that I post here when I update, or would you rather I just let you all look at it in your own time?
2009-08-15 [Chimes]: Well, if you don't post here we may not know you edited it, so it's always best to post here to be safe. :)
2009-08-16 [Ravendust]: Mine was updated
2009-09-08 [Nioniel]: Updated again!
2009-09-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Mine was updated... not that it matters, because it has still yet to be looked at.
2009-09-09 [Alexi Ice]: Wrong word choice, Mort. People have looked at it. It's yet to be sorted.
2009-09-09 [Mortified Penguin]: Gotcha. *wink*
2009-09-15 [HTOWNCASPER]: I THINK I AM A VERY GOOD PERSON TO BE ON THE CREW DO TO THE FACT THAT I AM ALWAYS ON HERE MEETING NEW PEOPLE AND HAVE GREAT IDEAS FOR EVENTS AND CONTEST.I AM ALWAYS LETTING PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT FAKE AND TRYING TO GET PEOPLE ON HERE.
2009-09-15 [nehirwen]: Then write yourself an app. ;)
2009-09-16 [Alexi Ice]: And may I suggest the app not be in all caps ^^
2009-09-18 [Ihsahn]: This isn't fake btw.
2009-09-26 [Morrigon]: It's much greener ^.^
2009-10-01 [Sagacious Turkey]: Not to complain, but I've been waiting patiently since July... it is now October...
2009-10-02 [Nioniel]: [donezo], [bluefarie], [deletedguy], [Like Sun Through The Rain], [Suicidal Moon], [thisfleshatomb], [defiant link] & [your naked night] have all been inactive for 40 days or more.
2009-10-02 [Chimes]: Yeah, I'll get to it.
2009-10-02 [Nioniel]: Ptthhdd!
2009-10-08 [DarkJenni]: I did apply but it's been such a long time that it must be deleted
2009-10-08 [DarkJenni]: yes pls. :)
2009-10-08 [DarkJenni]: thanks. ^_^
2009-10-08 [Sagacious Turkey]: Would someone mind explaining why my application was placed in the "medium" section? I meet all of the "General guidelines" and the requirements to make it into the "high" section. The only thing I don't do often on Elftown is report people. Maybe I just need to go on a spree and report hundreds at a time before I can be trusted... I'm beginning to believe the sorting for this is merely a popularity contest. I don't even think my application was looked at. It has three watchers: Me, [LinkTurrner], and [Mortified Penguin]. I would think that at least 1 of the 32 council members should maybe watch it or comment on it or anything. Heck, even reading it might help, but I've seen no signs of anyone doing that.
I wouldn't complain if it were not for the awful management of this wiki. It shouldn't take 3+ months to simply look at and rate an application. I'm not sure how many people are assigned to keep up with this wiki, but it's obviously not enough. Maybe you guys have other, more important things to do, but surely you can review an application in at least a week. That is, if you actually review them... which I'm seriously beginning to doubt. Maybe some different crew members need to be assigned to work here or something. Get a few that will work efficiently and actually help people with their applications.
2009-10-08 [Sagacious Turkey]: Also, there are members up there who have been inactive for way longer than 40 days, yet they remain there. Is it really that hard to look at a house or two a day and see how long they've been gone for? Then you simply move the application if the member has been gone for a while... It really isn't that difficult. You people are on the council for a reason (unless I'm right and it is just a popularity contest), so do your jobs, please.
2009-10-08 [Sagacious Turkey]: If an application like Lobsang's Campaign (who has been gone for longer than 40 days) is qualified enough to make it into the "high" section, surely mine and several others are too.
2009-10-08 [Ravendust]: [Sagacious Turkey]- I'm sure that your application was read over and contemplated decently enough. Just because somebody is not watching the page does not mean it has not been read. It has also been said that:
"We will not explain what exactly your application is missing. If we have something to say, then you'll hear from us."
"Remember, the amount of text does not make it better. However, showing proper (British) English, your Elftown work and interests does. Try to stand out from the rest.
Be active in wikis, forums or as patroller. Showing your effort in building and being a part of Elftown will also make you stand out."
You were placed in medium because your application is okay, but it can be improved upon. The requirements listed being met don't automatically throw you into the 'High' category. I'm sure a good portion of us have discussed all of the requirements in our applications. Take some time to read over and improve your application, prove that you can make it into the high group, but don't antagonize.
This is a big site with plenty of competitions and other things that require the attention of the crew. If you want to be helpful, then do so. One thing another applicant did was list the members that have been inactive for longer than 40 days, something easy that any of us could do. Think of ways that you can do things to help ease the burden on the crew, that's the best way to go about it.
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: Surprisingly we can read wikis without putting them on watch or comment indeed. >.>
And you don't know what the exact requirements are to be put in high, perhaps you should try to get out of trouble just a bit longer, and do helpful stuff. ;)
I'm sure Chimes will take care of the apps of members that are gone for 40+ days when she isn't ill anymore, we're only human after all.
2009-10-08 [Sagacious Turkey]: So you all read over the applications and discuss them? Or does one single person, whoever is feeling productive that day, decide themselves?
2009-10-08 [Aeolynn]: Complaining and being snobby isn't helping anything either, you two.
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: lol u mad?
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm going to assume she is talking to me and you. Though, if she is, she is wrong. I'm neither being snobby nor am I complaining... Turk might be, but I am not. I'm sorry, [Aeolynn]... Maybe you mistook me for [nehirwen]? Don't worry... people mix us up all the time, ain't that right, Nehir?! ...*laughs boisterously*.
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: It's inbetween your two assumptions. :p (a few of us read and discuss it)
Do they, Mort? xD
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: Why, of course they do. I'll be walking down the street and people will shout, "Hey! There goes Nehirwen!" and I'll politely say, "**** you!! GIVE ME YOUR MONEY!!" to which they usually respond, "OH MY GOD! HE SHOT MY LEG!! SOMEONE HELP! NEHIRWEN SHOT ME!". Yup. Happens aaaall the time...
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: At least they'll chase you and not me when that happens. :P
But enough about that, 'apply to the crew talk/questions
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: Not with a shot leg they won't. But, yes... 'apply to the crew' topics only.
Speaking of which, is there even any point in me applying? It's not going to do me any good...
2009-10-08 [Aeolynn]: Go take some meds for that belly ache =P
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: Who takes meds for a bellyache? That's just irresponsible.
2009-10-08 [Aeolynn]: =P obviously you didn't get it...
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: How is it not going to do you any good?
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: I seem to be considered an 'enemy' of Elftown. How could I ever get on the crew when the council doesn't trust me?
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: Show you're trustworthy? Keep out of trouble and do helpful stuff as I mentioned before. :)
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: Never!! ...besides... I do plenty of helpful things...
2009-10-08 [Mortified Penguin]: And you don't really think they're going to be like, "Hmm... he's been staying out of trouble for a while now... he should totally be on the crew!" do you? ...no... they'd just think it was some sort of plot... which it probably would be...
2009-10-08 [nehirwen]: :p
2009-10-09 [Nioniel]: Wow, interesting conversation..
2009-10-09 [Alexi Ice]: Hmmmm, though, it might help if we stated who exactly RAN this wiki. I usually chime in (no pun intended) when I feel it needs to be done, but I'm not entierly sure who's running the place..>> But maybe that's just me.
2009-10-09 [Chimes]: I was keeping it organised. But I've been slacking due to illness and University. I will be doing a massive overhaul on this but I just have to wait until I have the time to do it. So those who have been away for way longer than 40 days are there because I've not removed them yet.
No new council member should be chosen by one person, so generally when we are choosing from apps we ALL give input. The sorting is normally done, as Nehi said, by a few of us. Those few sometimes change, depending on who has time.
I hope that clears some stuff up.
2009-10-15 [Aeolynn]: I have updated my application, thank you for your time.
2009-10-15 [Mortified Penguin]: You're welcome, but I don't think I'm the one you should talk to about that... *eats ramen*...
2009-10-15 [Aeolynn]: Was talking to the crew, not you.
2009-10-15 [Alexi Ice]: Lol. Thanks for the note, Aeolynn. Just ignore him.
2009-10-15 [Mortified Penguin]: Whatever you say...
Now, I'm not calling you a liar, but I think it would be nice if you would at least tell the truth for once... You liar.
2009-10-16 [Alexi Ice]: Inactive accounts - removed. (Some were cutting it close...might do this again in about 10 days)
2009-10-16 [Nioniel]: Updated my appy again.
2009-10-21 [Alexi Ice]: Welcome to the council.
2009-10-21 [Nioniel]: Thank you!
2009-11-04 [Chel.]: Sign me up baby! ;)
2009-11-04 [Kaimee]: Good Luck Chel, I definitely recommend you! :)
2009-11-04 [Chel.]: Thank you!
2009-11-05 [Chel.]: I hope I put the app in the right spot :P
2009-11-05 [Alexi Ice]: You did.
2009-11-25 [Chel.]: Woot!
2009-12-17 [*Phoenix*]: Sooo....I put my application up here, when will I know what happens?
2009-12-17 [Ravendust]: soon as one of the crew gets the opportunity to look at it it'll be put into the proper section :)
2009-12-17 [*Phoenix*]: That means it may be a while or really quick...basica
2009-12-17 [Ravendust]: They're doing what they can to sort through things :)
2009-12-18 [*Phoenix*]: Cool, cool! :)
2009-12-28 [*Phoenix*]: UGH! The suspension is killing me!!! >.<
2009-12-28 [Mortified Penguin]: Yeah, that suspense will do that to you... *eats ramen*... and I'm sure it'll be quite a while longer... not to worry though! You're application looks good enough to rank 'high', so the wait will probably be worth it...
2009-12-28 [*Phoenix*]: Ugh. Stupid suspense. *huffs and crosses arms* Oh! Well, Thanks!!! I changed some things to make it a little more "me." ^_^
2009-12-28 [*Phoenix*]: Okay!!!! :0]
2010-01-01 [Aeolynn]: I withdrew my campaign.
2010-01-01 [Eyden13]: I'm working on my application, and I was wondering if any of you had advice for me.
2010-01-01 [Alexi Ice]: The best advice are at the top of the page under Requirements
2010-01-02 [Eyden13]: thanks
2010-01-02 [*Phoenix*]: welcomes.
2010-01-10 [Mortified Penguin]: I have submitted my newest application.
2010-02-02 [Sagacious Turkey]: Good luck, you guys! I hope you like waiting for rediculously long periods of time without reason.
2010-02-04 [Ravendust]: That's not very nice to say...
2010-02-04 [0-Aki]: No one said the process would be fast, They have a lot of council members as it is. And there is reason behind everything they do, just because they're not going out of their way to explain to everyone what's going on doesn't mean there isn't things going on.
I guess all in all don't be rude, if you don't like waiting that badly, then take yourself off the list, they have more important things to deal with than to be accountable to people like you.
2010-02-04 [SilverFire]: Don't worry guys, Turkey's a fairly harmless troll and he knows he'll never get chosen. :P But he has a point - we've been very slow on sorting out new apps.
2010-02-07 [0-Aki]: I understand he has a point, maybe I was a little harsh and I apologize, but there are reasons behind the slowness no?
2010-02-07 [Chimes]: Life tends to be the reason.
2010-02-07 [dancingsheep]: Agreed.
2010-02-07 [Mortified Penguin]: Disagreed!
2010-02-07 [dancingsheep]: Oh? :O
2010-02-07 [Mortified Penguin]: Oh. :|
2010-02-08 [0-Aki]: OH!
...*Wanted to be cool* <_<
2010-02-08 [*Phoenix*]: It's okay. The more time it takes the better I can make my app. MUWAHAHAHAHAHA
2010-03-08 [dancingsheep]: I have revoked my application.
2010-03-08 [*Phoenix*]: How come?
2010-03-08 [dancingsheep]: I am quitting ET. :/ It's been a good run.
2010-03-08 [*Phoenix*]: awww. That's sad. I don't get to see any more pictures...I was just getting to know you too..... :(
2010-03-08 [Ravendust]: how come you're leaving ET?
2010-03-08 [Alexi Ice]: IT says in her Diary.
2010-03-14 [*Phoenix*]: sooo...now that I'm sorted, what do I do?
2010-03-14 [Linderel]: You keep being active. And keep updating your application if you think of something to improve it. :P
2010-03-14 [*Phoenix*]: okay....should I notify someone if I do a big update?
2010-03-14 [Linderel]: I think people usually comment here.
2010-03-14 [*Phoenix*]: okies...
2010-03-16 [Ravendust]: Some of us are odd, however and tend to just write updated and the date by our wiki-links xD
2010-03-16 [*Phoenix*]: lol. Okies! ^-^
2010-03-17 [0-Aki]: Updated.
2010-04-14 [SoulHarvester22]: Life is what we make of it i was getting antsy so i applied
2010-04-14 [Alexi Ice]: You applied? I don't see your aplication.
2010-04-14 [Nioniel]: I second that, you are definitely not on this page.
2010-04-14 [Chimes]: She's new to Elftown, I think she means applied to the site rather than the Crew. Though, I could be wrong.
2010-05-09 [Ravendust]: I've updated my application :)
2010-06-19 [Mortified Penguin]: *violent cough*
2010-06-21 [hanhepi]: *pats mort on the back*
you ok? man, that cough don't sound good. you should get it checked out.
2010-08-09 [*Phoenix*]: Updated my application! Squee!
2010-09-12 [*Phoenix*]: UPDATED!
2010-09-14 [Mortified Penguin]: I don't like how this wiki looks or runs. I don't care if I'm not on the council or anything. Let me reorganize and take over this thing!
2010-09-15 [Eyden13]: I agree with penguin. May we please help clear it up and reorganize it?
2010-09-15 [Alexi Ice]: If the council thinks it needs to be re-organized, we will take care of it. Thank you for the offer but your services are not necessary.
2010-09-15 [Eyden13]: Kk ^-^
2010-09-15 [Kaimee]: It was nice to offer though, it's eagerness like that we like to see :)
2010-09-15 [Eyden13]: Well I'm definitely eager!
2010-09-15 [Ravendust]: aren't we all? ^^
2010-09-16 [Kaimee]: If anyone has any extra eagerness, they can always take it along to Herald Hopefuls or the Herald Guest Submissions, that is one official task that we always welcome contributions to :)
2010-09-16 [Eyden13]: Coolio. I'll go check it out. ^-^
2010-09-16 [Ihsahn]: a while ago I would have been on top of that, yet sadly, work/taining/ running ep has pretty much taken most of my life.
2010-09-16 [Kaimee]: Shame, sounds like you don't have much time to take on extra crew responsibiliti
2011-01-12 [Akayume]: I'm sure you could probably just move them over to the inactive list Nio. :O
2011-01-12 [Nioniel]: Done. :P
Sometimes when I'm on this site, though, I'm using my iPod which doesn't allow me to edit pages, so if I notice things like that, I'll comment on the page about it so that it gets fixed as soon as someone has a chance. :)
2011-01-12 [Mortified Penguin]: Not to criticize or call into question the competence of the workers here, but it has been over a year now and my application still hasn't been sorted. I'm not saying you guys don't have lives outside of Elftown, but if those lives of yours keep you from your duties for more than a year at a time, perhaps retirement should be considered, so that more active members can be assigned to the wiki. No rush on my application, though. Just a friendly suggestion!
2011-01-12 [Mortified Penguin]: But if you do happen to look at it and think to yourself, "This should go in the 'medium' or 'low' section," please disregard your own opinion and wait for someone more qualified to sort it. I would go ahead and place it in the 'high' section myself, but apparently that is frowned upon for some reason.
2011-01-12 [Nioniel]: Perhaps that's why it hasn't been sorted yet. ;)
2011-01-13 [Sunrose]: @Mort: Hahaha x)
2011-01-14 [Akayume]: Sunrose, you are so nice. X3
2011-01-14 [Sunrose]: I try ;P
2011-01-18 [HTOWNCASPER]: I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN APPLING FOR THE ELFTOWN CREW.WHAT DO I NEED TO DO
2011-01-18 [Chel.]: Turn the caps lock off.
2011-01-18 [Mortified Penguin]: If you fit the requirements stated on this page, just make some kind of wiki (like Mort's Application or turkey's resume for example) with your own information and explain why you would make a good crew member. Then post your wiki under the How to apply? section on this wiki and in 2 to 3 years, someone should get to your application and sort it.
2011-03-03 [Nioniel]: *moved two more to the inactive list*
2011-03-03 [Mortified Penguin]: Oh, I will kill you so hard.
2011-03-03 [SilverFire]: The list of accepted apps is getting silly-long now. <_<
2011-03-03 [Akayume]: Maybe just take a few and move the rest?
2011-03-03 [Flisky]: For the joined apps, maybe we should just keep the ones that belong to the active council members?
2011-03-04 [Nioniel]: Sorry, Mort.
@ Flisky; I agree.
2011-03-04 [Mortified Penguin]: I believe that would leave you with just these ten nine:
[SilverFire] - Silvie's App
[nehirwen] - Nehirwen for Elftown crew
[Chimes] - Chimes' Crew Application
[Alexi Ice] - Mitsuki's application attempt!
[Nioniel] - A Phoenix Rising for Council!
[Flisky] - Just wanna help
[Thunder Cid] - Thunder Cid for the Crew
[Chel.] - Woohoo! Chel for Crew!
[wicked fae mage] - wicked fae mage's resume
2011-03-04 [Alexi Ice]: Take Adon off the list and it would be perfect.
2011-03-04 [Mortified Penguin]: Poor Adon...
2011-03-04 [Akayume]: Well, they said they didn't have time. (: If they do later perhaps they'll be able to be added on again.
2011-03-04 [Ravendust]: I always have time xP
2011-03-10 [Ravendust]: Indeed, and I've contributed a few things for the current issue already :)
2011-03-10 [Kaimee]: I know, you're incredibly prolific, I'm enjoying it while I can x)
2011-03-11 [Ravendust]: What do you mean you're enjoying it while you can?
2011-03-11 [Mortified Penguin]: She's threatening you.
2011-03-12 [Ravendust]: How do ya figure that one?
2011-03-12 [Chimes]: Ignore Mort. :P A lot of eager people get less eager over time, so Kaimee is making the most of your Herald submissions while you're eager... just in case the eagerness fades. :P We hope it won't though!
(Could I have used 'eager' more in that comment? I think not.)
2011-03-12 [Ravendust]: You could have eagered every other word xP and I know about Mort, I was curious though. I have no intention of stopping my submissions to the herald
2011-03-12 [Mortified Penguin]: I dunno. I'm still pretty sure it was a vague threat.
2011-03-12 [Chimes]: Ravendust, this is very good news. :)
2011-03-13 [Kaimee]: I meant that since you've applied to the crew, I'm enjoying your prolific submissions to the Herald while I can, before you theoretically get stolen for general crew duties like everyone else... :P
Hehe, it's just a bit of a joke, because so often the eager and prolific ones are the same ones who eventually become crew :)
2011-03-13 [Mortified Penguin]: (she's threatening me now too)
2011-03-13 [Ravendust]: heheh I see
2011-03-15 [Kaimee]: (That actually was vaguely threatening in some way, I'll admit xP)
2011-03-20 [*Phoenix*]: I've decided to remove my app because I don't have time to be on ET lately. Someday, I want to be on Crew, but I just can't right now..
2011-03-21 [Mortified Penguin]: I've been wondering... what's with all these official wikis that don't have owners? Sure, if someone were to steal it and mess it up, a guard could easily take it back, but what if someone goes on a comment deleting spree? Those can't be recovered (last time I checked at least).
2011-03-21 [Chimes]: Mort is asking about comments on the wiki, not the actual content. It's easy to fix a destroyed wiki. :)
Mort, I think whoever made some of the pages left Elftown and deleted themselves as owner of them. I might be wrong though. We probably should re-own them...
2011-03-21 [kians mummy]: I was told that no one can take over them, as i wanted to take over one myself bit i wasn't allowed to.
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: [kians mummy] - Thank you for your enthusiasum. But please allow questions about official pages to be answered by Council members. Thank you.
Chimes - Yeah..I remember something like that going down not too long ago. I wonder how many official pages are floating around without owners right now.
Which pages are you speaking of, Morty?
2011-03-21 [Mortified Penguin]: Don't really remember them all, but I've seen more than one.
2011-03-21 [nehirwen]: For example this wiki. :p
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: Lol, Chimes. Love you!
Ok, this one's taken care of (Chimes can change the owner if she wants.) Let's find some more!
2011-03-21 [Chimes]: I think you mean Nehi. :P
But, thank you. :) I was about to claim. :P
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: No, I said you cuz' I made you the owner without asking (turns out I have divine powers and read your mind anyway)
If you run into anymore, Morty, please tell us ok?! Thank you <3
2011-03-21 [kians mummy]: I will do the same.
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: Thank you, Mort and Sammie
2011-03-21 [kians mummy]: If i find any and tell you, would i be able to claim them?
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: I'm sorry Sammie but since they are official pages the Council are the only people who can own them. It will give you credit to add to your council application though and get you some merit with the crew which is always good.
2011-03-21 [Mortified Penguin]: Retired Council Portrait Gallery
Elftown Valentine Competitions
Council Portrait Gallery
Fantasy Portrait Entries
The Happy Birthday Elftown Contest
The Badge Reward System
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: Alright. So this may get me killed but I changed the owner to the first council member who commented on that page. The owners can always be changed later.
2011-03-21 [Mortified Penguin]: And then there's wikis like this one that I don't remember either of them owning. Who used to own this one?
2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: I figured as much. Lol, I made Sun owner of one page. She may strangle me for that.
