Looking For A New "Top Right" Chooser
« on: October 24, 2017, 01:06:35 PM »
As everyone is aware, the top right corner of this website features witty or funny quotes from user posts.  It's a BellGab innovation that goes back years and is now being emulated by other forums.  The power of BellGab!

A few days ago I received word that the person who was responsible for selecting quotes has passed away.  I'd tell you who that is, but I was specifically asked by this person, who knew death was imminent, not to reveal that information.  What a BellGabber.

While the delicate candle of life sadly has been supplanted by the abyss that is death's darkness, life must go on for the rest of us.  That's why I'm here today searching for a willing volunteer who can dutifully select our top right quotes going forward.  Here is what you need to know:

1) A quote and a direct link to the post containing it should be submitted via PM every two days.
2) Nobody can know you are doing this.  If your identity in this role is revealed, you'll be forced to resign your position in shame.
3) Quotes should be short and fit neatly in the corner because long quotes will wrap into multiple lines and look awful.
4) As often happens, users will "nominate" a quote for the top right corner.  If a quote has been recommended or "nominated," it is immediately disqualified.

5) Quotes should be submitted one at a time.  Do not submit multiple quotes at once.

If you're interested in taking on this weighty but prestigious responsibility, do not express that interest in this thread.  Doing so will disqualify you.  Instead, send me a private message and explain in one sentence why you're the right person for the job.  You will only receive a response if you are selected by the Vandeven Enterprises™ board of directors.

Is that just a phrase people say or do you actually do some praying? Because with all the praying you say you do for people you must be praying 24/7.

No, I'm not just using it as a phrase.  I mean exactly what I say here.

There are infinite ways one can pray, meditate, visualize, etc., and still, have time for one's daily activities.

Then I extend that Energy to include his/her family and close friends.  I should have thought to do so in the first place.

I thought you were joking about the death. I liked their sense of what they thought was upper right hand material so much I made a thread dedicated to it.

Seen a lot of death over the last year from people who by all rights should have stuck around longer. I don't want the job. I just want to tip my hat to who ever it was and say "God Bless" to their memory and family. R.I.P.  :)

the best way to honor this person would be to accept the job and knock it out of the park.

BellGab has a new, permanent Lord of the Top Right.  Please join me in wishing this person well.  Let's pray God gives Lord TR the wisdom and patience to use this newly acquired power responsibly. 

"I'm researching nothing" is the first submission by our new LTR.  A respectable beginning.

Praise LTR.

It is with a modicum of regret that I must inform you, the "new member," that you just missed me.

I like the fact our new LTR is pulling gems from the archives.  Why does Tigger smell bad?

Keep up the good work, LTR. ;) ;D
