Hey guys, this is hottiemb with an article for you about the BBS's at the bottom
Whyville Times article.
Recently, I got an article published in the Times. I was pretty happy to see my
article was published and I went to the BBS to see what people thought of my
article. I noticed a lot of postings, but most of which had nothing to do with
my article! These are just some of the postings I discovered:
"how do u make clams. im new and I dont know how" -- OK, maybe a newbie wrote this
one, but what do clams have to do with being a y-mail helper?
"well I just wanted to say hi" -- This was a very useless posting.
"Hi do you want to start a new life in a new town well you don't have to start
all over again just ymail me and I'll get the permission from their. But
remember if you 're going to start a new life a this place I'll need 2 clams. So
think about it why villians." -- Yet another posting that had nothing to do with
Although there were also many good postings, the majority was junk. As I continued to read the Times,
I noticed that almost all the BBS's had junk
postings, too. This disgusted me! Here are some do's and don'ts when posting
something in an article BBS:
I hope you guys got all of that, and I hope that in the future there will be
better postings in the BBS's and fewer junk postings. =)
- Do ask questions about the article. This shows that you were interested. Just
make sure they are about the article and not something that has nothing to do
- Don't try to get an online girlfriend/boyfriend using the BBS. This could make
the person who wrote the article annoyed.
- Don't write something that has nothing to do with the article, like the
above. Again, the person who wrote the article could get upset or mad about it.
- Do give your opinion. Even if you didn't like the article, don't be afraid to
give reasons why you think the article could have been better. Maybe then the
next time that person writes an article, they will keep your tips in mind!
- Do give compliments. Writers love to hear that people enjoyed their article!
