Team Angela and Jenna: your trash-talking game is WEAK... you're already 12hrs behind... :)

Time to program trashBot... generating random, probably meaningless gibberish trash-talk posts every 30 minutes for the next 3 months... I'll show you

Hahaha :') can you programme it to do your reading for you too? If not we're definitely going to win xD

jess (nu6586) | 1723 comments Hey Niki et al,

Will the group of new sign-ups get their teams today/tomrw??

Just curious for the new year!
Thanks!
Oh, and will we all be adopting Rob's spreadsheet to calculate points?


message 20: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7557 comments Mod
I meant to add all the new signups last week at work, but it was crazy busy. First thing Tuesday everyone will be added. Sorry for the delay!

I vote to accept the spreadsheet. I think it's fantastic.


message 21: by Timelord Iain, Tech Support (new)

Timelord Iain | 18044 comments Mod
I KNEW that would be your response :)


message 22: by Hailee (new)

Hailee | 2613 comments I'm just a (nosy) bystander but I just wanted to say good luck to ALL the teams. May the most productive team of readers win!

The spreadsheet is the best idea ever. I also vote to use it.

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7557 comments Mod
@iain - What? The "sorry for the delay?" part? It takes a lot of work to put this together and coordinate everything and things in my personal life have been unavoidably crazy. We all do our best to get things together in a timely manner, but keep in mind that this is something we do as a hobby with our free time (and I just haven't had any lately). :)


message 25: by Timelord Iain, Tech Support (new)

Timelord Iain | 18044 comments Mod
I meant loving the spreadsheet and it's organizational benefits...


message 26: by Niki Hawkes, I made it past GOTM... barely (new)

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7557 comments Mod
Okay, yeah that makes sense lol. Im sincerely sorry for the freak out. To give you some background, I just had my mother and my boss give me shit for not getting stuff done while dealing with a baby that won't nap and a sick-as-a-dog husband. I'm clearly a little touchy. Sorry.


message 27: by Brian (new)

Brian | 1207 comments It’s all good Nikki. You and the other Mods do an awesome job at keeping this group so amazing. Enjoy the New Year and hope you get some rest!


message 28: by Hailee (last edited Dec 31, 2017 07:50PM) (new)

Hailee | 2613 comments I second Brian's statement. Sorry to hear you are stressed at the moment Niki. I hope your husband's illness is only temporary and that your baby learns the value of a good nap soon. I'm 28 and there is nothing I love more than a nap. Not even reading 😂


message 29: by Timelord Iain, Tech Support (new)

Timelord Iain | 18044 comments Mod
No worries Niki... as I've said before, I'm glad I'm not responsible for all that goes into a well-oiled Group... guess I should have been less vague...

I had a similar small misunderstanding over in my page counting thread...

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7557 comments Mod
Thank you for being gracious (and thank you Hailee and Brian for your kind words). :)


message 31: by Rea (new)

Rea Sanders (realauren89) | 42 comments Nikki is it still to late to get in on this awesomeness?


message 32: by Timelord Iain, Tech Support (new)

Timelord Iain | 18044 comments Mod
@Rea: You need 25 comments (you have 21 when I hover over your name here) and to have filled out a signup form over in the signup thread to get into the competition... you might be able to get in since Niki is planning to assign the last of signups in the next day or so, but after that I don't think there will be anymore additions until March/April...

So I'd get on it quick :)

Yes, exactly what Iain said (thanks!). If you'll take a moment to fill out the mini questionnaire here https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
