Home At Last!

Hi, guys! I’ve arrived home safely! Hurray!

However, when I arrived home, my laptop was broken, and we took it to the shop. It was proclaimed “physically damaged” and sent away to be examined, but they gave us a free, temporary one. The temporary computer is not the same, however, and is harder to type on. I’m very thankful that they lent us this computer, and I’ll be able to blog regularly again.

Yay!

Ads Begone!

UPDATE (3/5/14): This does not work with the ads that have “Want to Skip This Ad?” or “Game Will Start After This Ad” at the top. Sorry!

Hey guys!

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one frustrated with Fantage’s new ads on the sidebar and before games. Seriously, trying to play Bobo Fish while your page is constantly refreshing for new sidebar ads is not fun. Neither is waiting 2 1/2 minutes to play a 30 second game just so you can complete the new Cosmic Bingo. Thankfully, I’ve found out a way to eliminate the wait time for the pre-game ads.

Honestly, the trick is so simple most of you probably figured it out. I don’t even know if I should call it a trick. But for those of you who are a bit slower in devising these tricks (like me!), here it is!

We all watch videos on Youtube, right? So I’m pretty sure we’ve all skipped to parts of the video before. You can do the same for these pre-game ads!

Go from this:

game_ad1

To this in one click:

game_ad2

And in three seconds of watching an ad fade into darkness, to this:

game_ad3

I’m not sure if this works for the eCoin ads, because (last time I checked) they require you to watch the whole video for the entire length.

Sorry if you figured this out a long time ago! I’m just excited because *finally* I won’t have to wait 5 times the game’s duration to watch an ad.

New Author Introduction

If you couldn’t already tell from the title of this post, I’m the new author here at Fantage Plaza! My name is Pollee and you might know me from some of the blogs I’ve worked on previously, or from the Fantageville xat chat, where I work as a moderator. 

I would say that I’m quite a responsible, mature person and I’m very friendly and open, so feel free to contact me for help, or if you want to chat. I like proper grammar and photography and shopping and I’m also interested in journalism and creative writing. I’m a competitive dancer as well.

I’m just positive that I’ll have a splendid time working here. I am writing this post from my iPad, because my family is traveling, but I’ll be back and ready to attack in four days, tops. When I post, I’ll try to use pink writing so you can identify me.

So much love to each and every one of you,

~pollee~

Happy March!

Hey guys!

It’s March! We’re already in the third month of the year.

The blog background and header have been updated to fit our new month, and I’d like to proudly announce…

The Fantage Plaza St. Patrick’s Day Event!

Update 3/13/14: Whoops, I just found out that it’s not St. Patty’s Day, it’s St. Paddy’s Day! Sorry about that!

Hopefully all of you will be able to come.

Also, in two weeks my spring break starts. During the week, I plan to work on this event, earning gift cards for the PlazaPoints Store, and on Fantage Flash Facts.

One last thing– today is the LAST DAY to submit author applications. If your interested, submit a form here.

Enjoy the new month!

Author Applications Due By Tomorrow

Hey guys!

I just wanted to quickly remind you that no more author applications will be accepted after tomorrow at 11:59 Fantage Standard Time (same as Eastern Standard Time). To apply, fill out the form on this post.

I have received many wonderful applications and the decision is very hard for me, but I think I know who I will probably choose. As of now I’m thinking of starting off with one author, but if the need arises I may hire more.

Also, remember that I will not tell you who I chose, I will leave that up to the person instead. I will invite the new author on Sunday.

Best of luck to all of you!

Fantage Plaza: Now Hiring an Author!

Hey guys! As I promised, Fantage Plaza will be hiring an author. Make sure to read everything on this post before applying! If I cannot decide between two applications, I will hire both.

No applications will be accepted after March 1 (Saturday) at 11:59 Fantage Standard Time. I will most likely reblog this post a couple days before the deadline.

On all questions, remember to answer honestly. If I ask about your skills, it’s so that I know if I need to teach you, for example, to use WordPress. A more thoughtful application by a person who does not know how to screenshot or add copyrights will definitely be chosen by a hasty applicant who knows how to do these things.

Please note: An email and a WordPress account are necessary for this. If you don’t already have one, it’s never too late to make one. Just make sure your parents are okay with it.

*The form that used to be here was removed on 3/4/14, after the new author was invited.*

Once again, remember to answer honestly– in my opinion, that is the most important characteristic of a successful blogger.

I will not announce the author(s). Instead, I will let them introduce themselves with their first post on the blog.

Good luck to all of you! May the most enterprising author(s) win!

Pink Lace for V-Day Grace

Hey guys!

Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day (and a full moon)!

The blog background and header have been updated.

As always, I’m super busy and didn’t have time to make an event for you >.<

I do have a gift though!

For my amazing followers (precisely all 72 of you): *hidden* (50 PlazaPoints)

For my lovely viewers (who have given me over 5,800 views): ROSYPOSTS (30 PlazaPoints)

For my sweet commenters (first 6 to comment): comment for a PlazaPoints code worth 40 PlazaPoints!

I’m also letting you all know that sometime next week I will open up a position for an author at Fantage Plaza.

If you are interested, please fill out the form once I release it.

Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!

Oh, and did you know that today is my WordPress account’s one year anniversary? I used to have a blog before this that I used the same account for. I never felt that dedicated to it though, so I deleted it.
