Round 7 results will be posted 9/3/08

Written by Tyme White on August 26, 2008

Many people have been asking when we will be announcing the results from Round 7. We will be announcing the results Sept. 3, 2008 (Wednesday) on this blog. The holiday will be over, most will be back at school/work so the odds are higher everyone will be available so I can start processing sites.

I’ll explain this when the announcement is made but let me quickly explain the process.

  1. A list of the new members will be posted on the blog.
  2. Within the next couple of days after the announcement, I will be contacting the new members to begin processing their sites so their content displays on 9rules.
  3. At this time I will be sending out questions to those blogs that were not accepted but we had questions for the owner. If you saw the stream those are the sites we said were “maybes”.
  4. During this time it is not unheard of for there to be shifts within the communities. Depending on the sites accepted new communities might start, others might be merged, etc.
  5. If time permits (after I am done getting the new members settled in) I will post here on the blog how you can contact me to find out why your blog was not accepted. This is done privately via email.

That’s it! I just wanted to give everyone the date when the results will be posted. 🙂

The countdown to 30 for Scrivs is getting closer….

Written by Tyme White on August 13, 2008

Well, it’s that time of year again. Scrivs inches one year closer to 30. A few hours ago we did a superstream going through some of the sites that were submitted. Fun times – one of the people in the chat is going to be a member. Everyone wished him happy birthday early. It’s a good way to spend the prelude to a birthday. On Friday we’ll be having a real party with music, drinking etc. More good times – the occasion demands it.

Thank you for starting 9rules. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for being you.

Happy Birthday Scrivs!

We’re streaming!!!!!

The guys are going through sites. I’m monitoring the chat. Come join us.

Streamcast: Wednesday 9pm Eastern

Written by Scrivs on August 11, 2008

This Wednesday the crew will get together and go over some of the submissions live so you can get a feel for what we look for in submissions to 9rules. It will go on for at least an hour so there will be plenty of quality information flowing throughout. Make sure to be there.

More Than 10 Submissions

Written by Scrivs on August 7, 2008

In my last post it seems that some people actually believed that only 10 sites submitted to 9rules for Round 7 and therefore only 5 in Round 6. Sarcasm is sometimes lost online or you just don’t know me or the fact that 9rules rocks the boat. I won’t report the number of submissions, but it’s not even close to what people are thinking in the previous comments.

When I say twice as much as Round 6 I mean it and Round 6 was a large number. With that out of the way enjoy your weekend.
