I Am a Rule Follower - If You Must Know

I Am a Rule Follower - If You Must Know

Recently, I wrote a post upon which a couple of folks commented they were unsure that what I was promoting in that post was allowed at Persona Paper.

Oddly enough, I’m not going to link to that post here, even though normally I would, to enhance the story. However, I don’t want anyone to think I’m calling them out.

I’m not. AT ALL. I want that to be V E R Y clear here.

The point of this post is to make very C L E A R that I am a rule follower. I never would have written that other post had I not believed 100% that what I was preaching/promoting/saying - without a doubt - was true.

But... make absolutely sure. Because even though I was sure (in that other post) that what I was saying was true, WHO KNOWS, I could be...


Oh Em Gee.


It’s happened before, people.

A lot. Yep. San has been wrong before - a lot. And it’s going to happen again - I’m pretty darn sure.

But since this sort of stuff is important, not just for me, but for you all too - telling you things to do here on Persona Paper that could potentially get you into trouble...well, I just would not do that.

I’m a rule follower - if you must know.

So I doubled checked. What I was promoting IS allowed here at Persona Paper.

Great. Wee. WooHoo.

But what good does that do, since I haven’t even shared what the heck is allowed or what the heck I’m even talking about. No worries. We’ll get to that a little later today and hopefully it will make better sense.

For now I only wanted you to know that if I take the time to write a post, sharing a tip or trick or some other good thing I’ve pulled from my sleeve, you can rest assured that it is solid information based upon my understanding about such and such...

...which certainly doesn’t mean either that rules cannot or do not or will not change.

All I can say toward that is this - I’ll keep on doing my best to stay up on the rules and follow them too. I’ll share what I know as I go and appreciate that you trust me to do so honestly. I ask that you continue to call me out if you think what I’m saying is just a bunch of hogwash or maybe only a little off kilter...

In the end, we’ll get it right because it matters for you, for me, and for the good of the Persona Paper . And being a rule follower - if you must know - I am looking out for all three of us, always.

Actually I wasn't questioning that backlinking was okay, I was questioning how to make the links show up properly. However, I guess you had misunderstood my question. When I copy and paste a URL into my post it doesn't show up as a link. It shows the URL but you cannot click on it to go to the post. I was asking you how you make the links work.

The question regarding the rules was in regards to tagging because there were a lot of rumors flying around on Bubbblews that tagging people in your posts was a violation and I just wanted to know how it was looked at here.

NO worries, momathome - as I stated. I want folks to no that when I post something, they can take it to the bank. Okay? NOT calling you out. It was good to be brought up. Seriously. emoticon :heart:

The linking thing is pretty easy once you know how. Want me to do a post, quick or try and explain here?

SandraLynn reaching the rules is a total waste of time. It's one thing if you're not clear on them. But there are people that just don't seem to care about breaking the rules. I have seen it on many sites, especially these kinds of sites.

Oh but I am clear on them inertia4 and I will preach and teach and share and follow - till the cows come home, lol. Whatever that does mean ;) And I won't share helps that would potentially hurt others OR the site OR myself in the process. I just won't do it, ever. It's a respect thing. I would hope that MaeLou and elitecodex appreciate that but even if they were farther removed than they are - I'd still be a rule follower and share the right way. I won't be a part of ruining any site, and certainly not something I have my name associated with. When you look at it that way, it takes on a whole new meaning. At least I would hope it does.

Cheers :)

I am also a rule follower, I am on every site where I write. What sickens on a couple of sites, it's to see plagiarizers and rules breakers making money while "rules followers" had sometimes hard time cashing what was due to them. I think this site has a much better communication system and I am confident this will not happen here.

My confidence in that regard is quite high here as well, LadyDuck :) YAY :) It is sad when a few spoil it for the masses :(
