Lucius's Little Truths
#21: Men are like trees,
They die from the top.
#22: Capadocious and porcelain have one thing in common.
Drop either of them, and the entire world hears it.
There's been a bit of talk regarding Mooncalf's quizilla stunt. I've received several complaints and inquiries regarding this via email. People asked me if it's possible to get an account deleted because of this. To clarify all this, the practice is not considered cheating or spamming. Although it's highly frowned upon by many.
Recently, I've emailed RavenBlack regarding this matter and this is the response I got from him:
Devil Miyu's Q: By the way, I just remembered... I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but a couple of people from the Lost In Shadows LJ community and RBB board asked me about posting their biter link. They asked me if it's considered cheating or spamming if they post it on a livejournal community journal.
RavenBlack's A: Yes, unless the community is *theirs*.
Devil Miyu's Q: Another thing they pointed out and asked if it's considered 'cheating' is that, Mooncalf posted his biter link on a quizilla.com quiz, so now he's getting a lot of blood points for it. Is that fair and is that considered cheating? Are we allowed to do that?
RavenBlack's A: That's fine, because the quiz is his. You can post the link on any site that belongs to you, basically - even if it belongs by proxy, like if it's your livejournal - but not in the comments of someone else's livejournal, or in a public forum. By 'public forum', I mean places where anyone can post - putting it in places where anyone can *read* is fine.
...so there you have it folks. No more emails regarding this okay? I'm not really the one you should approach regarding this. Questions about the game should be directed at RavenBlack himself and not to me. Many thanks to RavenBlack for answering these questions.
The Vampire called "Midnightsong"
The human behind this vampire is Kathie Allyn. That is her name. She is taking a break from the game to tend to her mother who is currently very ill. In a recent post on the RavenBlack BloodLust board, Kathie Allyn informed us about blood clots and fluid in her mother's lungs. And as of right now, the outlook isn't very good. I just like to say that my thoughts and prayers goes out to Kathie and her family, most especially to her mother. Best of luck to you m'dear. If you wish to send her thoughts and prayers, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recently got this in my inbox from someone called "AngelVampyraKat@aol.com"...Not sure who is currently running VNN but can you place this in your next issue
explains it all :D Thankyou
...I have no problem posting requests from anyone out there. But, just a reminder to people out there, if you're going to email me, please put "VNN" in the subject heading followed by "classified" or "story" or "questions" depending on whatever the email is about. Otherwise, I simply will delete the email without even reading it. With all the problems concerning emails and computer viruses these days, I only open emails from people I know. Otherwise, I just delete them. Okay? Thanks.
