@Action News On A Different Day

@Action News Splash page.SpinDizzy residents have learned to accept the constant and regular publication of @Action News as being as dependable as the sun rising in the South. Each Saturday night / Sunday morning at midnight (Eastern Time) the paper is posted as a Sunday edition.

Editor and publisher, Argon, local Centaur has suffered a temporary change in his work schedule which makes it easier to print the paper on Sunday night / Monday morning. His second job, the one he does for pocket change after his primary source of income, @Action News, has altered his hours for the Summer.

Hopefully, the paper will return to it's regular 'Sunday Paper' status at the end of the summer.

Thank you for your patience.

Not In Top 100

Ba'artaur.Local wallaby Morticon is considering legal action against the American Film Institute. It seems that he found out that he had not made the Institute's list of "100 Heroes and Villians of all time".

When it was explained to him that the list was for Heroes and Villians that have appeared on the silver screen, Morticon was quoted as saying "That's because I never made a movie. Give me a starring role in a movie and I'll show you how evil I can be."

New Arrivals

Newbie patpating Morticon.Every other week, I will be calling attention to the new members of our community. (Editor's Note; ...with the permission of each of the new folks featured, of course. Folks who don't want to be featured in this series, will of course, have that wish fufilled.) This is not to embarrass them, but rather I do it in the hopes that it will encourage everyone to give them a special welcome and friendship.

The following members are new to our community as of a week or two ago at most. Please give them a warm welcome and offer assistance if needed. Who knows, you might even make a new friend or two!

  • Ias Male Homo Sapien "Hello."
  • Wyrdryn Male Dragon
  • Bengal Male Panthera Tigris Tigris "I really think this place is great and I can't wait to meet all of you!"

Weekly Survey

Argon doing the survey.This week, Argon asked folks, "I'm doing a survey for @Action News. The question this week is, 'If you could only read on person's mind, who'e would it be?

  • Gino writes "In response to the survey..I'd like to read Lavender's mind..so I can find out what my favorite honey bunny is thinking."
  • Carlos coilwrites, "I would read Boki's mind. I'm sure deep, deep, deep, deep down, he's really profound and philosophical."
  • Butterfluff speach bubbles , "I would like to be able to read my own subconscious, so I could get back things I have forgotten."
  • Penance decides that his answer for the survey is "My knight, of course."
  • BarterGarter doesn't want to read anyone's mind. She wants to _write_ advertisements into other people's minds!
  • Leslie pips, "I guess Mrs Natasha then because she's neat."
  • Rown says, "I have the answer to your survey Argon. The mind of a Sabine woman! Oops! Sorry, I want to ravish the body of a Sabine woman. Hmmm, lets see... I know! Hugh Hefner, that's who! : )"
  • Darwin (Today at 5:41:41AM) Probably Tiresta's, so I can snitch her puppeting skills. ;)
  • Kinsor Oh, for the best effect I'd have the power to read the mind of the person I am talking with. :}
  • Brenda would read the mind of her mate, Argon...that is, if we don't already have our minds synchronized. =^.^=
  • Cye says, "Mine."
  • Gilead barks, "Professor Charles Xavier. :)"
  • Maxskunk murfles, "My own, as it turns out I dont have any idea what I am thinking most times."
  • Vesper humms, "my own, so I could find out what I'm REALLY thinking..."
  • Pandamonia says, "Hillary Clinton's to see if she was really shocked when Bill admitted his affair with Monica."
  • Adara -- I would read Morticon's, because I think it would be interesting. If not, it would be Einstein's (yes, I know he's dead, but if I can read people's minds, I can sure as heck raise them from the dead, too!! =) )

Guidelines and Procedures for Submitting Articles

Submitting a story or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to newspaper@spindizzy.org or qmail or page Argon about it.
@Action News is published weekly on or after 12:01 AM Eastern Time on Monday. Most any type of story or article will be accepted. Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair game. The things reported don't have to have actually happened, (any more than anything that happens here does) but make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of interaction that we have. These are pretty broad guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.

Thanks! Argon, Editor @Action News
