However I am doing it in news article format so I plan to fill a 12 page paper. Yes, I will be designing the layout and everything. So far the templates alone have taken me roughly 20 hours.|
Good luck. I think media production's a good field, but unfortunately it's not one of my fields here.
I think I might know someone who's writing about marijuana for an assignment actually.
By the way...not sure if any of the previous grammar makes any sense. I need soda...
I back Imperator up on the coffee front.

Also I can't help but think the mini-mod comment was made somewhat at me.
You mean the business about being becoming a mod, etc?
I wouldn't worry yourself about it. Like I've already said in this thread, some of us will have moments like that - it's just another feature of the community. There was a quote doing the rounds across the BBS a few years back from 'a certain mod', something like, 'all regulars, regardless of whether they admit it or not, will want to be mods'. I think there's some truth to it, and given the ever=present novelty of this forum, I can forgive everyone (including myself) at this stage for trying to get stuck in. There's a learning curve involved.
Don't let it spoil your experience, is all I can say.

Anyways I really like the idea of people having to comment on other's work when they post their own. Any thoughts?
I've long been a fan of encouraging more users to offer critique to others here. One of the big benefits is that it helps everyone. Ever heard of the concept of the creative-critic? Someone who's actively creatively their own material, but is still wary of reading modes, theories, ideologies, etc.? It's practically all a neccessity on writing courses these days. I've tried to help push things a bit further in certain threads - not saying I'm a perfect model for it.
I don't comment on anywhere near as many threads as I would like to. Poetry has turned me off for being so, dare I say it, flash-in-the-pan, scripts have turned me off on formatting grounds, and there's a whole load of personal preference behind it all. I recommend all others to try it though - related: I try to make a practice out of returning comments to reviewer-writers.
Easter break may offer more of an oppurtunity to me.
AND OH MY GOD, slightly warmer day =/= a need to play loud music with the windows wide open. Booze night is tomorrow night for me, silly people.
