Will Respond to Comments and Post Contest as Soon as Possible

I know I promised to post that contest this week, but alas, I am under fire of Murphy’s law. I’m currently experiencing some unexpected medical problems that are as yet, undiagnosed and are preventing me from getting a large number of things done (blog included).

That said, the contest will probably need to be post-poned until next week, or possibly even the week after.

Also, I’ll get to all of your comments as soon as possible, but I can’t give you a timeline for that yet.

A Friendly Note to my Minions

The Book Addict's Guide to MBTI | #MTBIThank you for all of your fantastic, intelligent questions. You all have beautiful minds.

On that note, I promise I’m not ignoring your questions.

They’re not being answered in the same order they were asked because I want to give adequate time the more complicated ones. Easy questions I can simply dump out a response the same day and then put the post in the schedule, but not all questions are that simple. Some require a fair amount of research, so be patient in waiting for them.

In case it wasn’t evident, the queue is very lengthy and growing by the day. I would gladly welcome any help typing –especially with any character marked with an ^ symbol. Those are characters that I won’t personally be typing for whatever reason (most just because I refuse to watch the movies/shows they come from).

I’m a busy person. I’m going to college, working two jobs and writing a book. Any help would be much appreciated.

Please make Requests in the correct location

I know it’s easy to request characters in the comments, but please stop. I like to think I’ve set this system up so it’s easy for you to make requests, but if not, please inform me otherwise.

In the meantime, requests should still be made here: Request a Character

Also, please stop making duplicate requests. I’ve redesigned the queue by combining it with a directory of the characters I’ve already typed. From now on, you’ll be able to look at both the queue of requested characters and those that have already been typed together. Already typed characters will be linked to their respective posts, and untyped characters will simply be listed. So, whenever I refer to the queue, I’m now talking about the Character Directory.

Just to be clear, Ender Wiggin, Jack Harkness, Peeta Mellark and Elisabeth Bennett have already been typed. You can find them in the Character Directory.

The Alice in Wonderland Conundrum

“Alice from “Alice in Wonderland” (either the 2010 movie or the original stories)”

Alright, somebody requested Alice a looonnnng time ago, and I owe it to you to explain why I haven’t typed her yet. I’ve been skipping over her for a time while letting her stew in my mind a bit, the reason being that she happens to fall into the caricature category.

Her character traits aren’t character traits so much as archetypes.

I promise, I will get her typed, but until then, just be patient.

Upcoming Blog Maintenance

The Book Addict's Guide to MBTI | #MTBIApologies for any confusion. I’m doing extensive updates to all parts of the blog to try to make it easier for readers to navigate. My Te function just took over trying to make sure that everything is easy to navigate and read so that my Ni vision is clear and realised.

I picked out the last layout because it was aesthetically pleasing to me, but to be honest, it was annoying even for me to navigate, so I can’t imagine what a pain it was for my readers.

Backlogged and Busy

Some of you are likely wondering when I’m ever going to get to your question/character.

I’m sorry, but my life comes before this blog, and unfortunately, I have limited access to my “life” right now because it’s backlogged with 300+ pages of academic reading per week and multiple essays/tests.

The joys of being the youngest undergraduate in your major.

That said, I’m not simply ignoring your questions/requests. I’m going through the list little by little, but it’s going to take me a while, especially since it’s on hold at the moment.

There are a lot of perspicacious questions in the queue, and those tend to take longer (I put more emphasis on them than easy questions).

If, just about now, you’re wondering how long the queue is…

Over the coming finals weeks, this star (blogger) will burn out all its gasses by test-taking so that its self-gravity overpowers contained matter. At that point it will either:

  1. Collapse in on itself to form a white dwarf star. The end.
  2. Collapse in on itself to form a white dwarf star and then accrete enough matter to develop a binary star system, which (if it gets big enough (1.4 solar masses), it will explode in supernova to form a giant rainbow cloud that produces new stars (blog posts) at an alarming rate.

We’ll see. I might be busy climbing mountains and working come summer.
