I hate chain letters in my e-mail box. I do not want to see them in my Fanpop updates.

I remember a jaar of meer ago, link got the mickey taken out of him door DrDevience and others for posting unoriginal chain letters and Rush Limbaugh transcripts as soapboxes. He acted accordingly and removed those articles, and though I think we came down a little unfairly on him, I agreed that chain letters should not be geplaatst as soapboxes, because they are not original work, which was the point of soapboxes in the first place.

You'll notice that, when u post a new article, there is a drop-box asking what...

So this may seem a little "anal" of me, but I run into a lot of videos geplaatst on spots that are broken, and for that, I meld them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously geplaatst every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which videos may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots door reporting broken content, but it is very time consuming...

As a tip, and to make this job easier for people who contribute a lot, broken videos often have a gray video camera as the image instead of...

Just a little heads up.

It has been going on for awhile, but I've noticed it especially most recently. The bottom line of this entire artikel lays in its title: pick's aren't made for advertising.

Repetitively, picks are being created that ask "I've just made a spot for ___, will u kom bij it?", of something along those lines. Picks like these aren't really opinions and hold little gumption in terms of an interesting enquête of contrasting aantal keer bekeken on a subject. Picks like these are being made to solicit new spots, which isn't what picks are for.

There is a fabulous link, a link, and a link dedicated...

I've been rating afbeeldingen from some of my favoriete spots for the last couple of days and I always rate, save and commentaar (in that order strangely enough) and I was really surprised at some of the bad commentaren towards images, not to the person who added them but to a certain celebrity e.g. Sarah Jessica Parker from The Sex And The City spot of Willow from the Buffy spot. Whether the image is a portrayal of the character of the person some people have left nasty commentaren calling them 'ugly' and so on, if u are a fan of a spot then I'm assuming that u like the person, character of people surrounding...

I don't really know how to start this as I've only been on fanpop for a little over a maand now, but it's just 'my opinion' regarding the spots that 'double up' as I call it. When I first joined fanpop I noticed there were quiet a few double up spots such as Buffy, Spuffy, Angel and Bangel, there's at least two Disney spots that I know of and many spin off spots such as Enchanted, Bambi and Ariel, there's many icoon and avatar spots, there is double up spots and triple spots, but my point is I don't care because if I'm a fan of say: Buffy (and I am) I'll kom bij 'everything' I can find related to that piece, whether I double up of not because what I can't find on one spot I'll find it on another.
Many of u may not agree with me and I don't expect anyone to do so, maybe some of u like a few spots on the one topic and some of u don't, I like fanpop just the way it is, the meer spots, the better.

I've only been with fanpop since mid June this year, it was a bit confusing at first but I joined a few spots, made a few pics, saved some of my favoriete videos, worked out how to use my mailbox, contributed to a few spots, created my own spot and made a few fan friends. However when we had the recent image problem things became meer confusing, I couldn't ad pictures to other spots and couldn't work on my own spot so I'd log in to check my mail and the image dilemma and log straight back out again.
Then tonight (after MUCH boredom) I realized it wasn't just about the afbeeldingen (even though that...

Hello, seekers of good antwoorden to burning questions! It has come to my attention that an official guide to using the new antwoorden feature is necessary in order to prevent abuse of this fabulous new fun feature.

I stumbled across fanfly's vraag about the link for this feature and answered the vraag with a lijst of five things I think are the most important to keep in mind. Urged door germany123 to make it into a soapbox, I present to u the Official Rules of the Fanpop antwoorden Feature.

1) If u know the answer to the question, don't ask. This should be fairly clear already, but antwoorden are...

I am so sick of all the nastiness and sarcasm that goes on in Fanpop, through the forums, via fan pick vragen and commentaren left regarding afbeeldingen etc.
And I'm sick of being so nice about it when there's only so much one person can take, I've almost left Fanpop on a few occasions because of 'some' peoples attitudes here and I'm over it.
I have been on Fanpop for almost a jaar now and I'm not nasty to people, I get on here and do my thing and contribute as much as I can, but if I cop anymore shit of see people being nasty to other people here I will meld them and I'll name all of the 'nasties'...

I decided to write this artikel because I have seen vragen being asked about unsubscribing from spots and I have dropped a few spots myself.
The only two reasons I will drop a spot is if the spot has little of no content of the topic isn't exactly a favoriete of mine, even if I thought it would be.
I do admit that I feel like a real mean teef when I decide to leave a spot and I'm not here to redeem myself of make excuses, but to help other fans who are in a similar situation as I am and also hopefully for some feedback, commentaren and ideas.
Some of us kom bij spots because the person that created...

I have created quiet a few spots now and I love contributions of any kind, but I am surprised at how many people will pick on 'any' fan pick vraag just for the sake of it even if they don't like the subject at hand.
Perfect examples of this behavior is what I have noticed not only on spots that I've created but many other spots as well, someone may put up a vraag such as: 'Do u Like The Movie Enchanted?' and someone will answer 'Never Seen It' of another question, say - 'Which Bambi foto Is Your Favorite?' only for someone to come up with 'I Hate Bambi.'
It's not whether u are a fan...

As my first artikel on fanpop had to do with 'my idea' of fanpop etiquette I decided to write a part two as to how I would like to put my days into different sections eg: what to do on fanpop every day, if I have the time.

Monday: Work on the spot I've created.

Tuesday: Contribute to other spots and kom bij new ones.

Wednesday: Check my profiel and learn meer about my fans.

Thursday: Go through every video, picture, article, achtergrond etc. and save and rate my favorites.

Friday: Find new material to add to all of my favoriete spots.

Saturday: Have one dag to go all around the whole of fanpop, I may not do anything but I might find something new.

Sunday: Try not to turn the computer on, who am I kidding?

And almost every dag I must remember to check my mail, it seems like a lot to do but it's fun anyway and if you're anything like me, someone who can stay on the computer for hours at a time? remember to take breaks at least every half an uur to avoid headaches. Have Fun.

I’ve read up a lot on ‘image credit’ and peoples perceptions of the right and wrong ways to credit afbeeldingen but personally I think some people are going about it in the wrong way. I don’t expect people to ‘like me’ for what I’m about to say and I don’t care because as I’ve always stated, Fanpop is supposed to be a happy, fun place where people can make friends, share opinions, kom bij and create spots all of which is a great way to express oneself, as well as contributing to other spots.
In my opinion Fanpop can teach us to be creative, to share with others, express ourselves and...

I think that this artikel belongs here in opposed to 'Fanpop Spots' because it is a Fanpop Etiquette issue, as well as a spot of club issue.
When u kom bij a spot it appears in your updates as one of your spots and so do the ones u create, I've heard some people say that a spot that u created 'isn't your spot' now I know that the spots belong to Fanpop and I realize that 'most' of u would be very proud of your creations just as I am of mine.
However if u are the spot creator then 'in my opinion' the spot is yours to some degree, u create the spot, only u can change the banner, icon...

So I tried to think of a catchier title, but I figured I might as well just call it what it is. I have seen instances of (what I believe to be unintentional) heterosexism in several Fanpop picks. As evidenced door link, however, some believe it to be intentional.

Now I'm not trying to whine about wording of being politically correct. In fact, I'm not politically correct in the slightest, as anyone who knows me well enough will tell you. And this issue isn't really a big deal, I just wanted to make people aware of it and ask their opinions on it. So do u find these things odd?

The type of picks...

I've been with Fanpop for almost five months now and at first I thought it was a really happy place, I've made ten spots and all of them are doing well, I save, rate and always comment, however I've finally seen the nasty side of Fanpop, my first spot copped a lot of flack because it was classed as 'another random spot' but it's going strong and gaining fans as is most 'other' duplicate spots I've seen, all of my spots have been a great form of creativity and experience for me, it sounds too good to be true, AND IT IS because there is some really nasty people on our happy Fanpop place, people...
