Raphael: Ok, I am writing again. Sept 18, 2014 5:31:06 GMT -6
sapphire: There's always next month. (You're also still welcome to write any of the previous prompts. It's just too late for the prize.) :) Sept 17, 2014 23:28:18 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: Blargh! I forgot to check on the 16th! :( Sept 17, 2014 20:03:27 GMT -6 *
sapphire: Um, oops? Sorry! I admit that I completely forgot. How about the 16th this month? I'll put it up now. Sept 15, 2014 21:56:09 GMT -6 *
A Mask Among Many: Where's the Swift Scribble? :'( Sept 15, 2014 20:47:48 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: Okay, thanks. It's not a big problem, just something that annoys me. :P Sept 14, 2014 18:10:09 GMT -6
sapphire: If there is, I don't know how, not without taking it away from every board. It shows up every time I update something. Sorry. :P It should go away on its own, soon. Sept 13, 2014 23:24:13 GMT -6 *
A Mask Among Many: Okay, is there any way to remove the 'new' icon from the Staff Room? (I don't know why, but it's reeeeally annoying me.) Thanks! Sept 13, 2014 13:07:22 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: You're very welcome! :) Sept 7, 2014 17:38:05 GMT -6
sapphire: Thanks, Mask. :) Sept 7, 2014 17:28:41 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: Dang it! I missed it! Happy Birthday, Sapphire!!! :D Sept 7, 2014 6:04:08 GMT -6
sapphire: Thanks, Raphael! Sept 6, 2014 16:32:24 GMT -6
Raphael: Happy Birthday Sapphire!!! Sept 6, 2014 14:17:31 GMT -6
sapphire: Normally I'd say yes, Mask, but in this case there wouldn't be much point. We didn't get any other entries. I'd love to read it, though, if you post it! Sept 2, 2014 22:53:50 GMT -6
A Mask Among Many: Hey, I wrote something for the summer contest, but was unable to email it as the 31st was my birthday, and I was occupied pretty much all day. Is there any way I could submit it late? Sept 1, 2014 20:10:20 GMT -6
sapphire: Just a reminder: Entries for the summer contest are due August 31st! That's tomorrow, so make sure you get them emailed in! Aug 30, 2014 1:11:16 GMT -6
Harbor: I already know how to play the violin, so plucking at least I've got the hang of. Aug 28, 2014 21:48:37 GMT -6
Harbor: that fit it well enough for me to pluck along without being dissonant. Aug 28, 2014 21:48:13 GMT -6
Harbor: always been extremely difficult for me so admittedly I'd rather learn things by ear than by paper, I think it'll be easier for me to pick up, but that presents its own challenges of course. I want to be able to listen to any song and find the notes Aug 28, 2014 21:48:05 GMT -6
Harbor: I managed to learn a simple version of Cat Power's cover of Sea of Love but haven't played it in weeks now so wouldn't be able to play it offhand. I don't know anything about it other than that, and still forget the names of the strings. Music reading has Aug 28, 2014 21:47:28 GMT -6
