2009-11-03 [SilverFire]: I reverted the page back. There are four lines between each entry for a reason, Cilla, please leave it that way, thanks. ;)

2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: Sorry Silver, I honestly meant to change it back. I had just changed it so I could read it better to make sure I wasn't confusing myself. I should of changed it back, sorry bout that!

2009-11-03 [SilverFire]: It's no biggy - it takes all of two seconds to change it back, and you prompted me to update the archives anyway. :P

But why did you find it confusing? Because it's too spaced out? Or...?

2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: Cuz it was too spaced out. But that's just me and the way I read. I can't speak for others.

2009-11-03 [SilverFire]: Fair. It was that spaced out when I took it over, and I certainly found it harder to read when they're all bunched together - but I think it was more of a problem with the bigger ones. When I took it over, I just started outlining the contests of the news articles instead of listing all the detail, so the entries got a lot shorter. Maybe next year I'll try fewer spaces. :)

2009-11-03 [Cillamoon]: No worries hon, again it's just me that had an issue with reading it.
