2006-02-27 [chuchutrain]: O.O you are not grandparents are ancient!

2006-02-27 [Po]: did I become so wise then? Or such a wiseass? *ponders*

2006-02-27 [*Amy*]: Yep, Wiseass you are! :P

2006-02-27 [chuchutrain]: wiseasses are born wiseasses...^^

2006-03-01 [RiddleRose]: no, they begin as wisetushies... when they're little you know. they mature into wiseasses... ^_^

2006-03-01 [Fuzzysabeast]: *laughs*

2006-03-01 [chuchutrain]: yeah I guess so...that makes a lot of sence *pretends to ponder*

2006-03-01 [Mister Saint]: I can vouch for this. I've grown quite a few of them in jars. ^_^

2006-03-01 [Fuzzysabeast]: I bet you have Moorn

2006-03-01 [Mister Saint]: It's a good bet. ^_^

2006-03-01 [chuchutrain]: can you like...change your ass to a smart ass, Moorn? O.O

2006-03-01 [Lilium]: lol thats kinda sorta cool

2006-03-01 [Lunessance]: Hell-o I need people to talk to me, but not too many at one time because I'm people phobic.

2006-03-01 [Askoga]: Hiya, and welcome!

2006-03-01 [Mister Saint]: Hello, there. ^^

2006-03-01 [La Divina]: Hullo, new peoples!

2006-03-01 [chuchutrain]: Heya!

2006-03-02 [Fuzzysabeast]: Welcome one and all!

2006-03-02 [RiddleRose]: woo! happy march!!! *is excited that winter is almost over*

2006-03-02 [chuchutrain]: for you it's probably almost over...we just had like...two foot dump of snow here :(

2006-03-02 [Lilium]: I wish it would snow here...*mumbles* Stupid texas..

2006-03-02 [DorianP]: It's constantly snowing over here lately, but it melts away so soon...

2006-03-02 [Lilium]: At least you get some..

2006-03-02 [chuchutrain]: but up here it DOESN'T melt...atleast not this much! and it's getting really annoying!

2006-03-02 [RiddleRose]: winter isn't really almost over, i just like to delude myself into thinking it is... >.< no, we really have at least three more weeks left before it starts getting significantly warmer. ugh. i may die.

2006-03-02 [chuchutrain]: oh well that's about the same here...

2006-03-03 [Lilium]: Well its warm here and I hate it..some winter I mean come was cold for like 2 weeks and that was it

2006-03-03 [chuchutrain]: wow...that's it's like winter for 6 months...

2006-03-04 [Lunessance]: Winter is no fun. Summer's better.

2006-03-04 [Fuzzysabeast]: Yes it is! *nods in agreement*

2006-03-04 [chuchutrain]: I like winter because I snowboard...but I like summer because I don't need so I like both

2006-03-04 [Lunessance]: sounds good.

2006-03-04 [chuchutrain]: very good

2006-03-04 [Fuzzysabeast]: I just miss going to Lake Michigan and watching the sun set over the water. It's so beautiful, like watching the sun set for the very first time!

2006-03-04 [*Amy*]: I like summer because i can go sit in the lake all day! winter on the other hand, too cold all around, although the snow is very pretty when the sun shines on it:D

2006-03-04 [chuchutrain]: I don't live by a lake that I could go watch...I live by something like a lake...but people party down there so

2006-03-04 [Mister Saint]: I live right by lake Cumberland, which is fun. Skipping stones, fishing wherever the driftwood piles won't tangle the lines, exposing one's posterior to passing houseboats... good times.

2006-03-04 [RiddleRose]: heehee! i live on a tiny little pond... leeches, snapping turtles... fisherman types all over the place in rowboats... brown water... the whole bit. >.< not the best place for swimming... but when the conditions are right we can have a lot of fun ice skating!

2006-03-05 [chuchutrain]: that's pretty cool

2006-03-05 [RiddleRose]: yeah... i don't like the leeches much though... >.<

2006-03-05 [chuchutrain]: I've never had to deal with them, which I'm glad for

2006-03-05 [*Amy*]: i've had to deal with them a couple of times:S oh my, they are really disgusting and a pain to get off of you!

2006-03-06 [chuchutrain]: eeewww....

2006-03-06 [Kuzco]: bah, a little flame and they're out. OR you could make creative incisions with a blade ;).

2006-03-07 [chuchutrain]: o.O

2006-03-07 [RiddleRose]: ew... *thinks about something else*

2006-03-07 [chuchutrain]: that is so...gross...

2006-03-07 [Fuzzysabeast]: Oh god I absolutly detest leaches, not to mention bats

2006-03-07 [Mister Saint]: *laughs* Candy and fluff, and care bears! Cake! 

2006-03-07 [Fuzzysabeast]: Care bears eh? Moorn I always knew you were a softie. ;P

2006-03-07 [Mister Saint]: I was just naming my favorite foods...

2006-03-07 [Fuzzysabeast]: *laughs*

2006-03-07 [Today for you, tomorrow for me]: Yeah, those care bears are one tasty meal . . . if you can catch em

2006-03-07 [Kuzco]: MEAT!

2006-03-07 [Fuzzysabeast]: I put up a new poll! <poll:57>

2006-03-07 [chuchutrain]: bears are slighty too happy for

2006-03-07 [Lilium]: Have you ever heard of the scare bears? they're more my speed

2006-03-07 [*Amy*]: scare bears huh? never heard of them. tell me about em!

2006-03-07 [Mister Saint]: Do they taste good too?

2006-03-07 [Today for you, tomorrow for me]: I bet you they do taste better than care bears! Cause you know, too much fluff with care bears . . .

2006-03-08 [chuchutrain]: yeah that would get irritating to the throat. Is it just me or is there a new layout for WritersCo? Maybe it's just my computer...

2006-03-08 [Mister Saint]: I don't think so o.o

2006-03-08 [chuchutrain]: so it's just my computer... o.o

2006-03-08 [RiddleRose]: i've got it too... interesting! i kind of like it! but not the poor innocent care bears! -runs after fleeing care bears- Never fear! Sunny's here!!! -strikes heric pose while running and trips- yow...

2006-03-08 [Today for you, tomorrow for me]: *stares* Geeze . . . I wasn't even hungry for care bear tonight . . . like I said, too fluffy

2006-03-08 [Fuzzysabeast]: Better fluffy than frizzy

2006-03-08 [*Amy*]: i think they would be to sweet for my taste. i like the meaty kind

2006-03-08 [Askoga]: No, no, I'm seeing the new layout too. It'll take a bit to get used to. Wonder if I can change it back manually....

2006-03-08 [Po]: Durn't like the new layout

2006-03-08 [*Amy*]: Does the new layout have messed up colors...cause if it does then i have it too

2006-03-08 [Mister Saint]: Mine looks normal again. ^^

2006-03-08 [La Divina]: Mins still lokks kinda wonky... but I like it.

2006-03-08 [Fuzzysabeast]: ok now ours is all screwed up

2006-03-08 [Lunessance]: ......

2006-03-08 [chuchutrain]: all the colors are screwed up and now I have to fix the images in my house! :(

2006-03-08 [Font]: You should use transparent backgrounds in your images ;)

2006-03-08 [Po]: Moorn, how did you get yours to look normal again? Did you change the CSS or did it happen on its own?

2006-03-08 [*Amy*]: mine looks all funky still too

2006-03-08 [Font]: There are 3 other stylesheets at CSS if you want to use one of those go to your presentation and type in the CSS name in th box underneath the CSS pulldown menu. Remember to add an underscore before the name eg _darkheader.css

2006-03-08 [Font]: And now, you can select The old CSS from the css options in your presentation :)

2006-03-08 [Askoga]: Whoo!

2006-03-08 [Kaimee]: I like the new layout (messages especially look great) but I wish the colours hadn't changed, my house isn't pretty anymore :P And changing it back to the old stylesheet so that it looks pretty to me is just silly, because any new people who join will automatically be on this one, so it'll all look strange to them :P

2006-03-08 [Fuzzysabeast]: Very true

2006-03-08 [Font]: We can work on getting the images to have a transparent bg so that they look better on all CSS

2006-03-09 [chuchutrain]: The thing is that when I save my images it automatically turns the background of the image white so it sucks

2006-03-09 [Kaimee]: I was talking about the colours in my house actually, I was really happy with the peachy-pinky colours on the blue/grey. They don't match so well anymore :( But transperent images isn't my problem, I can fix mine whenever I'm not feeling lazy :P

2006-03-09 [Kaimee]: chu, what are you saving them as? You have to save them certain ways to make transparent bgs :P

2006-03-09 [Font]: Kaimee we can still work on colours, so if you guys have any suggestions please feel free to fire them at us. The new CSS is more to fix a few minor things in html, so colour schemes can be altered. :)

2006-03-09 [chuchutrain]: I'm saving them as jpegs....

2006-03-09 [*Amy*]: try saving them as gifs.

2006-03-09 [chuchutrain]: okeys

2006-03-10 [Kaimee]: That's ok Font, I've been harrassing True already ;) He was patient enough to sit there and try and work out colours I liked better XD

2006-03-10 [chuchutrain]: lol good job!

2006-03-11 [Mister Saint]: Attention, all members: I need about three volunteers for a special project. Now, I can't really reveal everything in front of everyone, cuz that would spoil the surprise, but I'll tell you now that you'll be serving as a creative panel and a judging panel for a new kind of contest. I need the volunteers within a few days, so we can get down to business. If you're interested, send me a private message, do not ask here. It is a flipside matter, but the details need to be under wraps for a bit. ^^

2006-03-12 [chuchutrain]: okeys

2006-03-12 [Kaimee]: Just a note to whoever organises the month's Featured Contest: Thankyou!! ^^ Also, where it says "Contest Type:Single, themed prose." I'm a bit confused :P I may just be being daft, because I've been in a hot car all day when I wasn't standing around hours at the airport, but the Forgiveness contest accepts both prose and poetry. Should it say that there, or not?

2006-03-12 [chuchutrain]: I believe it might be a misunderstanding so it probably will be changed soon...

2006-03-13 [Mister Saint]: Attention all members: The special project has enough volunteers now. Thanks to everyone who is helping out with this!

2006-03-13 [chuchutrain]: :)

2006-03-13 [Po]: Sorry about that miss, Kaimee dear. I fixed it for you. :D

2006-03-13 [Kaimee]: *makes blowfish faces at everyone* Thankyou!

2006-03-13 [Mister Saint]: Attention all merfreaks: There's a new poll at Flipside Feedback.

2006-03-13 [chuchutrain]: awsomeness

2006-03-20 [Lunessance]: Guys this is boring because I cabn't talk to people over 19. Someone talk to me

2006-03-20 [chuchutrain]: seriously? why not?\

2006-03-20 [SleepingDragon]: wtf is the matter with people over 19? >:(

2006-03-20 [DorianP]: Does this mean no one will talk to me when I turn 19? :p

2006-03-20 [Fuzzysabeast]: I will Dorian. Just some members have parents who are overly restricting!

2006-03-20 [Kaimee]: I'm quite offended by that rule :P

2006-03-20 [SleepingDragon]: Maybe if she holds up a mirror she can talk to us in the reflection the meantime, tell her that he said, she said that I said...;)

2006-03-21 [Mister Saint]: Lunessance dear, this isn't a chat. If you just want to talk, hop over to Flipside Chat and do it there please. ^_^ Everyone else please note that mirrors are NOT allowed here in any shape or form, lest we all see the effects my weasel-metamorphosis spell has had.

2006-03-21 [chuchutrain]: b-but....I'm a minor TT.TT

2006-03-22 [Kaimee]: Anyone got any strong opinions on when I should close Forgiveness? I've decided (through a complete lack of ability to stop myself) to write at least a short note on each piece, but that's left me wondering whether a critique on the 1st place is reward enough, by comparison. Any opinions? :(

2006-03-22 [Fuzzysabeast]: Do what you feel is right Your Highness! *giggles* I'm sure noone here will complain about how you do critique, a short note isn't exactly a critique in my mind anyway. A deadline seems a good thing though seeing as there are already a number of good pieces entered. This should be a rather difficult judge as it is me thinks. *nods*

2006-03-22 [Mister Saint]: Go with what's convenient. If you're free now, close it now. If you're busy now, wait till you aren't. *nods*

2006-03-23 [chuchutrain]: Do what you feel is nessessary :D

2006-03-23 [Kaimee]: I waited till everyone who signed up to enter had actually submitted something, and now I can close it as soon as these notes are finished. I'm ready to close it soon, but I'm not going to announce a deadline. If I were ready to close it and someone still hadn't entered, I'd give them a deadline and then close it at the end whether they had entered or not, but as everyone who was going to has entered I feel thjat I can close it whenever. Be warned >:P

2006-03-23 [chuchutrain]: okeys

2006-03-23 [Mister Saint]: Attention all members: There is a new poll up at Flipside Feedback concerning April's Event. If you aren't watching Flipside Feedback please do so.

2006-03-23 [chuchutrain]: okeys

2006-03-30 [Kaimee]: Congrats to chu by the way, I hadn't gotten a chance to check out the featured member thing before this :D

2006-03-30 [Po]: Hey all, I kinda jumped the gun on the [featured contest] thingy, but I'm not sure if I'll be online tomorrow to update, so I just did it. :D Check it out!

2006-03-31 [dmeredith]: Hey Po, your link is broke! did you forget the@ wiki stuff?

2006-03-31 [Mister Saint]: I think she just wanted it to be red. ^^

2006-03-31 [chuchutrain]: probably...since there is no page for the contest... ^^

2006-03-31 [Kaimee]: Because red is the colour of all things smecksie, and we should all be loving our featured contests >.> Hehe, ok, forgive me, I'm incredibly asleep and odd right now xD

2006-03-31 [chuchutrain]: lol don't worry about it

2006-04-02 [Mister Saint]: Attention all members: Get off your literary asses!

2006-04-03 [Grey Wanderer]: *jumps up from sleeping on elbow* I'm working, I'm working! *types furiously*

2006-04-03 [chuchutrain]: heh...heh....heh?

2006-04-03 [Mister Saint]: Attention all members: The deadline for the Once Upon A Birthday contest, part of the WCBB One Birthday Bash, has been set for April 15th. 

2006-04-03 [chuchutrain]: Better hurry midgets ^^

2006-04-05 [RiddleRose]: midget? that's definitely the first time i've ever been called a midget... XD

2006-04-05 [Mister Saint]: o.o Are you tall, then?

2006-04-05 [RiddleRose]: five feet ten inches... yep. quite tall. ^_^

2006-04-05 [chuchutrain]: o.o that's pretty I don't know how tall I am though ^^;;

2006-04-05 [Mister Saint]: Yeah! Thash tall. *headbangs* 

2006-04-05 [RiddleRose]: heh... it can be fun... but other times it can be painful. i bump into a lot of low-hanging branches... XD

2006-04-05 [Mister Saint]: *feels that* *grins*

2006-04-05 [chuchutrain]: ow...

2006-04-05 [Grey Wanderer]: I'm small. It can be fun...because I can fit places...but then again...I can't reach stuff ;)

2006-04-06 [chuchutrain]: ....I laugh at my sisters cause I'm taller than them...:D

2006-04-08 [RiddleRose]: i loom over every girl i meet... except one. she's actually a quarter of an inch taller than me! yay!!! but the boys are finally catching up. took them long enough... XD

2006-04-08 [chuchutrain]: lol I'm pretty tall compared to the other girls in my grade...but the guys...oh god they are ^^;;

2006-04-11 [La Divina]: SALMON!!

2006-04-20 [Kaimee]: I Want You To Write Forgiveness Judging is finished ;) Congrats people :P

2006-04-21 [Kaimee]: And I'm starting up my next contest finally, check out the This is Life Writing Contest if you're interested. It's for short stories or poetry based on your life and experiences. It does not have to be entirely true to life but I want no vampire stories, fantasy, futuristic happenings, far off lands or magic! Sure, if once you experienced something entirely creepy you are almost sure was a ghost, write it. But regardless of whether you believe in the supernatural, you must admit they don't really belong in this contest :P Other than that.. meh, I'll be lenient. Just write me some good things to read, or burrow around and see if you've already got something that fits :)

2006-06-26 [Calliope]: Voting is now in progress for If I were a . . .. Please go vote :)

2006-06-26 [RiddleRose]: new contest bopping about in the contest section... -hint hint- check out ghosts of ourselves

2006-07-06 [Lunessance]: ...

2006-09-20 [Po]:

Contest winners FINALLY announced at Five Words Winners List!

2006-11-04 [Burning Inside]: hey! im hoping to get back into writing just need to have a writing program kus mine expired :(
(i have a temporary one at the moment)
neways I was wondering if there were any new contests up and running at the moment.

(Wow its been a while since I was here)

2006-11-04 [Mister Saint]: There's a freeware writing program called AbiWord out there, under the GNU license. It's pretty good, it has its glitchy moments, but free is a good price tag. Do a google search and find it. ^^

2006-11-06 [Kiddalee]: AbiWord is great. You could also get as a replacement for MS Office, if you have a fast connection, or can get your hands on a CD containing it.

2007-01-25 [Lunessance]: wow I haven't been here in a long time

2007-01-26 [Kaimee]: I don't think most people have ;)

2007-01-26 [Kiddalee]: *is watching this page*

2007-01-26 [Kaimee]: *is too*

2007-01-27 [RiddleRose]: goshgollygee! thanks for nominating me whoever it was! i'm flattered!

2007-01-28 [Kaimee]: Ehehehe, I was like "wait, why did the page change? The page never changes, what's going on??" O.o but a featured riddlerose is a plenty good reason to change it! Yay! And thanks for mentioning my staying lost story Rose ;)

2007-01-30 [RiddleRose]: squee! you're welcome! i loved it!

2007-01-31 [Kaimee]: Lovely person ^^

2007-02-13 [Lunessance]: whait waht happened?

2007-03-21 [chuchutrain]: wow...I haven't been on here in a LOOOONG time... O.O

2007-03-21 [Annie]: :P

2007-03-21 [Lunessance]: me either

2007-03-30 [Fuzzysabeast]: I am repromoting The Otherside I created this awhile ago and am back after a short absence. I need technical help, story hosts, and some supporters.........please give me a hand

2007-05-04 [Lunessance]: .......

2007-05-04 [RiddleRose]: what sort of technical help do you need?

2011-03-02 [Akayume]: I wish that this hadn't died..

2011-03-04 [Kaimee]: Me too! We can always start it up again? :)

2011-03-04 [Annie]: It'll need some cleaning up, that's for sure. :)

2011-03-05 [Akayume]: But yes! we should revive it. :D

2011-03-06 [Annie]: I concur.

2011-03-10 [Kaimee]: I'd just love to see more regularly hosted contests and challenges on here, and this seems like the place to do it! :)

Maybe it doesn't need to be so complex this time, with all the different pages for chatting, workshops, feedback, contests etc... things we don't really have enough active members to really need yet!
I think it would work if all contests are linked from this main page, and as we work up more things (workshops, tutorials or special events) we also just post links to them on this page :) As for chatting... I don't think we'll get enough right away to really require a separate page for it! Maybe that's why this whole place got so lonely in the first place, all the talking had to be conducted on different pages! x)

2011-03-10 [Annie]: Haha place to chat is enough methinks. Perhaps we can just copy/paste all of this content into a new wiki and call it "Old Flipside," then revamp this one to be simpler and more prettiful? Of course have a link to the old Flipside somewhere...

2011-03-10 [Kaimee]: Good idea :D

2011-03-13 [Akayume]: I agree. (: I'm really excited guys. I used to love this when I was a young, horrible author... :P

2011-03-13 [Annie]: Haha.. :) I'll just get things rolling by moving all this to an old flipside wiki...

2011-03-13 [Annie]: By the way...keep the old banner or create a new one? Thoughts?

2011-03-13 [Akayume]: New start, new banner. (: My thought.

2011-03-13 [Annie]: I agree :)

2011-03-13 [Annie]: I propose that anybody who would like to should create a potential new banner and place it at the bottom of this page (I started as an example). Then if desired, we can vote for the one we want.

2011-03-14 [Kaimee]: I'll have a go tonight :)

2011-03-15 [Calann]: I had thought of making one, but now I'm cowed. :P

2011-03-16 [Kaimee]: Nooo, make one! :P

2011-03-17 [Annie]: Do, do!

2011-03-18 [Akayume]: :D :D :D
