I'm so tired, and the outside world is daring to encroach again and yet again on my cherished Fake obsession. I'm very glad I found Fake Second Chances and this little community of Fake fans. Even though I've never met any of you, you guys ( girls? ) make up for the fact that my friends and family all look at me with a strange mingling of affection and pity whenever I mention my twin interests of manga and anime, which I'm learning to mention less and less often... I just want to say thank you to those of you who write Fake fan fiction, and especially to whoever started the Fake 2nd Chances RPG. I know it's AU now, but it's so easy to start thinking of it as canon because it's being so carefully and lovingly crafted. I'm really grateful to all of you.

Thanks! You should put this on 2nd_chance_chat! Hope you got some rest.

Hi, I'd like to put things on 2nd chance chat, but I'm confused about whether I'm a member or not. I thought I was, but I don't seem able to initiate a post directly from the RPG. So far, I've only been able to respond to other people's posts and I feel weird about changing the subject on them mid-thread when I have something completely different that I want to say or talk about. I have lots of good things to say about Fake second chances! There are players I still haven't complimented yet, like Dee's, for example. I have something to say to everybody! Like for example, I want to see more Diana and more Carol. I think their parts are being under-utilized.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. How do you go about being the initiator of a post on 2nd chance chat? I really do feel strange about interrupting a thread on a specific subject. I did it once before, but I'm perhaps hyper-sensitive to netiquette, as I'm new to all this.

Any advice / suggestions you can give me are appreciated, as always.

Hi, it's me again with another question for you. How can I get myself listed in the 'watched by" section of the Fake 2nd Chances user info page, as I am such an avid watcher/reader/all-round fan of the rpg?

Normally, you'd go to the user info page and click on the blue text near the top that says 'join this community' - however, fake_2nd_chance is a closed community to preserve the continuity of the story. Sooooo, to get into the 'Watched by' section, go to the fake_2nd_chance user info page. Ignore the blue text. You should see 6 little boxes (I think), the one on the far left has a little person in it with a plus sign. Click on that and it will add you as a 'Watcher' and the fake_2nd_chance entries should then show up on your friends page.

Psst - thanks for asking, by the way. We all consider listing ones' self as a 'watcher' to be the highest complement you can give to our little rpg. Thanks!

That is bizarre - you're listed as a member, so you should be able to post.

Try this - when you go to make a journal entry in your personal issue, scroll down all the way to the bottom - there should be a box on the left that says something like 'Post to'. If there is an arrow/scrollbar thingie there, click on it and you should see all the communities that you have joined/have access to post in, in addition to your personal journal. Bring up 2nd_chance_chat in the box, and you should then be posting there instead of making a journal entry in your own journal. Try that out - hopefully that will work.

Oops - didn't post this as a reply, did it as a new response, drat. Sowwy.

Thank you! As usual, your suggestion worked liked a charm.

The post I just made to 2nd chance chat could have actually been done as a response to the thread that was already in progress, but I wanted to to try out your recommendation A.S.A.P. and ( happy sigh ) I now have the power to post independently.

I'm beginning to think that "It worked!" should become almost my mantra in my posts to you.
