Post histories were reviewed, our peers chose our rules. One week of changing the way we posted.

That changing how i post thing was hard. Mac did a great job at tailoring the new posting styles to us, I thought.

She really did. A lot of people really struggled with it. It only lasted a week, but it felt like so much longer!

Holy crap, Stew, that Experiment thread sounded like so much fun! Wonder if anyone would want to try again...

We could always find out who is up for it, Cranky. I'll check in the mod room. We wore our rules in our signatures so everyone could keep track - we reported infractions, and the debrief at the end, the "what we learned" portion, was really great.

That would be awesome. I know I have my crutches, but I would be fascinated to see what other people think they are, and if they match up.

That, and trying to purge them. :D

If I recall, Mac had me post at least three sentences. It was annoying. I had to acutally say more than just a funny one liner.
