Hello, seekers of good réponses to burning questions! It has come to my attention that an official guide to using the new réponses feature is necessary in order to prevent abuse of this fabulous new fun feature.

I stumbled across fanfly's question about the link for this feature and answered the question with a liste of five things I think are the most important to keep in mind. Urged par germany123 to make it into a soapbox, I present to toi the Official Rules of the fanpop réponses Feature.

1) If toi know the answer to the question, don't ask. This should be fairly clear already, but réponses are...

I am so sick of all the nastiness and sarcasm that goes on in Fanpop, through the forums, via fan pick questions and commentaires left regarding images etc.
And I'm sick of being so nice about it when there's only so much one person can take, I've almost left fanpop on a few occasions because of 'some' peoples attitudes here and I'm over it.
I have been on fanpop for almost a an now and I'm not nasty to people, I get on here and do my thing and contribute as much as I can, but if I cop anymore shit ou see people being nasty to other people here I will rapporter them and I'll name all of the 'nasties'...

I decided to write this article because I have seen questions being asked about unsubscribing from spots and I have dropped a few spots myself.
The only two reasons I will drop a spot is if the spot has little ou no content ou the topic isn't exactly a favori of mine, even if I thought it would be.
I do admit that I feel like a real mean chienne when I decide to leave a spot and I'm not here to redeem myself ou make excuses, but to help other fans who are in a similar situation as I am and also hopefully for some feedback, commentaires and ideas.
Some of us rejoindre spots because the person that created...

I have created quiet a few spots now and I l’amour contributions of any kind, but I am surprised at how many people will pick on 'any' fan pick question just for the sake of it even if they don't like the subject at hand.
Perfect examples of this behavior is what I have noticed not only on spots that I've created but many other spots as well, someone may put up a question such as: 'Do toi Like The Movie Enchanted?' and someone will answer 'Never Seen It' ou another question, say - 'Which Bambi photo Is Your Favorite?' only for someone to come up with 'I Hate Bambi.'
It's not whether toi are a fan...

As my first article on fanpop had to do with 'my idea' of fanpop etiquette I decided to write a part two as to how I would like to put my days into different sections eg: what to do on fanpop every day, if I have the time.

Monday: Work on the spot I've created.

Tuesday: Contribute to other spots and rejoindre new ones.

Wednesday: Check my profil and learn plus about my fans.

Thursday: Go through every video, picture, article, fond d’écran etc. and save and rate my favorites.

Friday: Find new material to add to all of my favori spots.

Saturday: Have one jour to go all around the whole of fanpop, I may not do anything but I might find something new.

Sunday: Try not to turn the computer on, who am I kidding?

And almost every jour I must remember to check my mail, it seems like a lot to do but it's fun anyway and if you're anything like me, someone who can stay on the computer for hours at a time? remember to take breaks at least every half an heure to avoid headaches. Have Fun.

I’ve read up a lot on ‘image credit’ and peoples perceptions of the right and wrong ways to credit images but personally I think some people are going about it in the wrong way. I don’t expect people to ‘like me’ for what I’m about to say and I don’t care because as I’ve always stated, fanpop is supposed to be a happy, fun place where people can make friends, share opinions, rejoindre and create spots all of which is a great way to express oneself, as well as contributing to other spots.
In my opinion fanpop can teach us to be creative, to share with others, express ourselves and...

I've been rating images from some of my favori spots for the last couple of days and I always rate, save and commentaire (in that order strangely enough) and I was really surprised at some of the bad commentaires towards images, not to the person who added them but to a certain celebrity e.g. Sarah Jessica Parker from The Sex And The City spot ou Willow from the Buffy spot. Whether the image is a portrayal of the character ou the person some people have left nasty commentaires calling them 'ugly' and so on, if toi are a fan of a spot then I'm assuming that toi like the person, character ou people surrounding...

I don't really know how to start this as I've only been on fanpop for a little over a mois now, but it's just 'my opinion' regarding the spots that 'double up' as I call it. When I first joined fanpop I noticed there were quiet a few double up spots such as Buffy, Spuffy, Angel and Bangel, there's at least two Disney spots that I know of and many spin off spots such as Enchanted, Bambi and Ariel, there's many icone and Avatar spots, there is double up spots and triple spots, but my point is I don't care because if I'm a fan of say: Buffy (and I am) I'll rejoindre 'everything' I can find related to that piece, whether I double up ou not because what I can't find on one spot I'll find it on another.
Many of toi may not agree with me and I don't expect anyone to do so, maybe some of toi like a few spots on the one topic and some of toi don't, I like fanpop just the way it is, the plus spots, the better.

I've only been with fanpop since mid June this year, it was a bit confusing at first but I joined a few spots, made a few pics, saved some of my favori videos, worked out how to use my mailbox, contributed to a few spots, created my own spot and made a few fan friends. However when we had the récent image problem things became plus confusing, I couldn't ad pictures to other spots and couldn't work on my own spot so I'd log in to check my mail and the image dilemma and log straight back out again.
Then tonight (after MUCH boredom) I realized it wasn't just about the images (even though that...

I hate chain letters in my e-mail box. I do not want to see them in my fanpop updates.

I remember a an ou plus ago, link got the mickey taken out of him par DrDevience and others for posting unoriginal chain letters and Rush Limbaugh transcripts as soapboxes. He acted accordingly and removed those articles, and though I think we came down a little unfairly on him, I agreed that chain letters should not be posté as soapboxes, because they are not original work, which was the point of soapboxes in the first place.

You'll notice that, when toi post a new article, there is a drop-box asking what...

So this may seem a little "anal" of me, but I run into a lot of vidéos posté on spots that are broken, and for that, I rapporter them. Still, I wonder why it's so difficult for the original poster to go back through some of the things they previously posté every once in a while (every 3 months?) to check which vidéos may now have a copyright claim, etc. I certainly don't mind cleaning up spots par reporting broken content, but it is very time consuming...

As a tip, and to make this job easier for people who contribute a lot, broken vidéos often have a gray video camera as the image instead of...

I think that this article belongs here in opposed to 'Fanpop Spots' because it is a fanpop Etiquette issue, as well as a spot ou club issue.
When toi rejoindre a spot it appears in your mises à jour as one of your spots and so do the ones toi create, I've heard some people say that a spot that toi created 'isn't your spot' now I know that the spots belong to fanpop and I realize that 'most' of toi would be very proud of your creations just as I am of mine.
However if toi are the spot creator then 'in my opinion' the spot is yours to some degree, toi create the spot, only toi can change the banner, icon...

Just a little heads up.

It has been going on for awhile, but I've noticed it especially most recently. The bottom line of this entire article lays in its title: pick's aren't made for advertising.

Repetitively, picks are being created that ask "I've just made a spot for ___, will toi rejoindre it?", ou something along those lines. Picks like these aren't really opinions and hold little gumption in terms of an interesting vote ou contrasting vues on a subject. Picks like these are being made to solicit new spots, which isn't what picks are for.

There is a fabulous link, a link, and a link dedicated...

So I tried to think of a catchier title, but I figured I might as well just call it what it is. I have seen instances of (what I believe to be unintentional) heterosexism in several fanpop picks. As evidenced par link, however, some believe it to be intentional.

Now I'm not trying to whine about wording ou being politically correct. In fact, I'm not politically correct in the slightest, as anyone who knows me well enough will tell you. And this issue isn't really a big deal, I just wanted to make people aware of it and ask their opinions on it. So do toi find these things odd?

The type of picks...

I've been with fanpop for almost five months now and at first I thought it was a really happy place, I've made ten spots and all of them are doing well, I save, rate and always comment, however I've finally seen the nasty side of Fanpop, my first spot copped a lot of flack because it was classed as 'another aléatoire spot' but it's going strong and gaining fans as is most 'other' duplicate spots I've seen, all of my spots have been a great form of creativity and experience for me, it sounds too good to be true, AND IT IS because there is some really nasty people on our happy fanpop place, people...
