    I seem to have missed January's (I posted interest but saw no update in the thread since then so didn't find out when my slot was...) so I need to make an especial effort to do this one...

    Do your forum settings not subscribe to threads automatically when you post? That might be the problem.

    Incidentally, it's still January if you want to go ahead and post over there It's even technically your turn again!

    Wow, I didn't realize I could do that and so I have been doing it manually. Thanks for the tip!

    If anyone needs help, here is how to turn that on:
    Go to UserCP (upper left blue bar) then from the new screen, choose "edit options" on the menu on the left. From there choose: Default thread subscription mode.

    I set mine to "no email", and I just check my UserCP whenever I log on. You could have notices emailed to you if you like.

    I turned off subscriptions because:

    a) it is not how I find threads I am interested in
    b) Mac said in another thread that subscriptions can take up a lot of space on the server so to not use them if you can quite help it.

    I usually do the 'new threads' search as soon as I log in to find all threads that have been updated since my last visit. For some reason, these threads never seem to appear in that list...

    No time to do anything for January as I have 101 other things that need attention before the 1st of Feb so I will have to keep an eye on this thread for my turn...

    I don't even have a rough draft yet but I need a kick in the butt to get writing. And the list is long enough that I feel somewhat confident that I'll have something when it's my turn.
    So.....I'm in!

    Finally! I got my inspiration of what to do with this prompt! A new challenge for me.

    Thanks guys for keeping me trying new things. I'll probably write it tonight.

    Orion, when you put up the first post, you might sign up for one of these and create a running list.

    http://www.simply-linked.com/

    They'll provide you code to copy to your webpage and each of us who participate would go to your page and fill in our url when we're ready to publish our spot.

    Check it out to see if it will work for us with these blog chains. Here's one that I started -- What's for Thanksgiving at Your House?

    I'm taking off on vacation in the next few days, so I may not be back to post it on the proper date, especially if it goes as fast as it did last month. So just move me to the end of the list, I'll be back well before the end of the month.

    On Literateparakeet's suggestion, I posted my entry in the Share Your Work forum as it was too long for a blog chain and I want to submit it to a contest. Posting it on my blog constitutes "published" to some.

    I would appreciate the feedback so I can submit the best version possible. That, and your opinion matters to me.

    I'll still read the posts and comment.

    Thanks again.

    Hey Inkstokes, I'm glad you did it! I'll look at it probably this evening at work.

    I'm glad you told me this. I can see how it could quickly add up when some posts are just "congratulations" or "welcome to the board". Still, I love thread subscriptions, so I've committed to a compromise by heavy deleting of subscriptions, while keeping a few that I am enamored with.

    Whenever These Mean Streets posts, your turn begins!

    In other news I'm back and the chain begins with my post tonight.

    As i'm second in line i've uploaded my post now as i'll be going to bed soon (being in England and all), so in order to get things going quickly i thought i'd be prepared.

    It's HERE, although please wait Orion to upload first. I don't want to be pushing in line. Again, i'm English, and if there's one thing we can do is stand in line

    Eh, it's all right. I actually have to post mine tomorrow as well, since I forgot I had an entry already queued up for today (I wrote ten entries ahead of time and scheduled them to drop during my vacation).

    I'll just bump Turndog up and make my post tomorrow. It'll be nice not going first for once...

    I know i felt very rebellious doing it. I feared i might not have made it on today though (Been one of those days) and i feared being shunned to the back of the queue :0

    There was no mercy shown to tardiness last month, and rightly so might i add
