Can You Pass The Acid Test?

Well I hope I can. I am new to the vines on this site and yes it was the third vine I signed up for good observation, markinthedark. And thank you erickat for the spreadsheet...it will make my life easier for sure.

We gave up on paps, and the vine was reseeded

hey now erickat!

"We" had no mixup, Paps stalled the vine.

Back in the beginning of November I first PM'd paps regarding this vine. No reply. I pm'd her again two weeks later, still no reply. In mid December we gave up on it, and TNHG reseeded the vine, sending the copy to me in mid-December. The vine appears to be moving well now. Paps finally replied to me yesterday (after more than two months!) asking where to send the vine. I told her to keep the darn thing. She apparently needs help keeping track of vines, and also needs to read her damn PMs.

Thanks for your help.

So.... looks like we had another mix-up

This list has gotten hard to follow - and we've already had a couple of re-seeds.
Apparently, Paps has the package & doesn't know where to send it - she never posted that she had received it & didn't know where to look to find out who was next in line. Keeping track is critical to prevent lost vines - I use an excel spreadsheet to track vines.

If this vine is off track - then whoever is next in line should PM paps & ask her to send it along - but be sure to post here, so everyone knows the status.

Gone, Daddy, Gone

Went out the window to boxen a couple of days ago. Keep the eyes in the back of your head peeled.

And BTW...

The material on these six discs is must have for any serious collector/historian. I recognized a number of the passages referenced in Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test when burning them. The Jer interview is great, both for the content of his answers and the background noise of people coming and going at 710.

All in all good stuff; disjointed and poorly recorded, but eminently collectible. Here is the new list, unless we hear otherwise from playdead or Billy S:

30. Pajak
31. boxen
32. joneb
33. grdaed73
34. Dead Man Telling Tales
35. emily-j
36. hard_to_handle
37. TxJed
38. mercedes42
39. playdead
40. Billy S

I will give boxen and/or joneb until COB tomorrow, then I will offer the sheet to grdaed73.
Cool?

Billy and playdead got moved to the end because...

...they've disappeared, Billy S has anyway, been absent without replying to PMs for weeks now. Playdead PM'd me last week and said he was going to stop vining, for awhile at least. Probably OK to move mercedes up. Don't know what the deal is with boxen, thought he was fairly active still.

Just don't let this vine disappear again, it's been reseeded like three or four times already, it's one of the first vines any new viner will sign up for.

Cheers,
MarkintheDark
