No Quote Towers

I know this is obviously tangential, but since it's come up a couple of times already: part of the issue is that 'Quote Tower' is a bit of a vague term. The term was originally used before Gaia's post system clipped quotes down automatically, and posts could wind up with literally dozens of nested quotes, which needlessly stretched pages. If you look through some very old threads, you'll be able to see them - but in that sense of the word (the sense I've always known) 'Quote Towers' no longer exist. sweatdrop

The point being, if you're meaning to use the term to discourage something specific, you should probably indicate precisely what that is - as someone who is familiar with the term 'Quote Tower', I wouldn't have known what you meant either. I'm not sure how you'd best explain it ("No nested quotes" would make sense to me, but that meaning of "nested" isn't necessarily commonplace), but since it's something that's important to you, it'd be good to find a way to express it such that everyone understands.

----

I will mention that the event seems like a good idea, and I'll have to come back to see if there are any contests I might be interested in; hopefully I'll find something to participate in a bit, myself... 3nodding

You must wear the avatar you submitted for the duration of the event. (From when you enter until Halloween is over.) Voting will be held on the 25th in a different thread.

do we have until the 25th to submit our avatar entry, or do we have to do it by a previous date?

I've been apart of gaia since 2004. :/ I remember the horror of those quote towers. You do raise A fair point, and so I edited the rules. Hopefully it better reflects what I mean by Quote Towers.

Btw, as my memory serves, Quote towers where always thought of as stacking quotes on one another. Sure smaller Quote towers were normally thought of as fine, and it was the larger ones that annoyed people. But to say Quote Towers don't exist anymore?

Also, I certainly do hope you'll come back an enjoy yourself here. ^.^
