      You know how a banana starts to go brown and mushy if you partly peel one and leave it out?  Yeah, I think that's happening to my eyes.

        I was thinking the same-- I always hate peeling my eyes, and would only do it in a surpreme emergency. Besides, the eyeglass prescriptions are expensive.

    CHOO CHOO!!

    Ever wonder what those requests are all about?

    Well here's your chance to join the fun.  The request train is all about inspiration.  It is a way for Hubbers to connect, much like the cars of a train do! 

    How this works:

    Make a request specifically to the person who posted ahead of you by clicking the "Request a hub from [insert name here]" link on their profile.  When making your request, really try and make it good - really check out the person's profile, maybe skim a hub or two they've written. 

    That's it- that person would then answer the request, be given inspiration for a new hub AND, you'd be next in line to receive a request. big_smile

    So who's in?

    http://www.bruceongames.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/children-video-game.jpg

    Just call me Thomas the Tank Engine, gamergirl...here's your request. Looking forward to getting mine. Feel free to have a little fun with it, Hubbers...I'm all yours!

    Tips and Resources For Managing Your Children's Video Game Habits(addiction)

    Also, remember to send the request directly to the Hubber through their profile, not just as a general request...that way the Hubber will get a Request email and you'll get one once they answer it.

    Who's got something for me? Just be sure that when you post, you give a reply to the person in front of you. You might want to mention who you're requesting as well, just in case someone sneaks in on you. smile

    Also, I say that we give a 3-day limit max for answering, what do all of you think?

    Weeeee! A game! And a fun sounding one at that! ^_^ I'm so in!

    But wait; how do we pick people and stuff? What are the rules? I don't entirely get it. sad

  20. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 8 years ago

    You don't "pick" someone really - you make a request from the person who last posted a request.  So - for example, you would go to Inspirepub's profile and request a Hub from her based off of what you see on her Profile page. smile

  21. Kika Rose profile image82
    Kika Roseposted 8 years ago

    Oh! Okay, now I get it. This will be great! I'll do my best to make requests! ... After I sleep. ^_^

  22. gamergirl profile image60
    gamergirlposted 8 years ago

    Come on... who is next?  Make your request to Inspirepub and then post here to let everyone know you did it - the first person to post they requested is the next person in the Request train!

    ----Non-Request Train Comment(do not Request me)----

    Also, remember that you just have to initially give the Request, which shouldn't take too long. The Hubber then has 3 days to complete the Hub that you Requested of them. Also, after you give the request, the next person who posts in the Forum will then send you a Request.

    Does this make sense?

    So, for example, gamergirl posted the Request Train information and I followed it up with a CHOO CHOOOO! and a Request for her about children and video games. She will get an email telling her that I sent her a Request and she now has 3 days to publish the Hud as an answer to the Request.

    Then, after I posted, Inspirepub posted a Request to me regarding finding good keywords to Hub about, which sent me an email about the Request and now I have 3 days to publish the Hub and answer the Request.

    ...and the Request Train keeps on moving along. smile

    Now, someone needs to post a new Request in the Forum that will be for Inspirepub so that she can answer it in the next 3 days. Be sure to look at her profile and previously posted Hubs so that you can get a good idea of what to Request from her.

    I hope this helps - just remember that if you Request, then you will be Requested. Also, after you publish the Request answer Hub, post a link to it in the Forums so that we all can see. smile

    Sounds a little confusing, but we'll get it. I think that it will be a fun thing going into the weekend, so have some fun with it and hop on the Request Train when you feel like playing along!

    CHOOO CHOOOOOOO!

      Mine is up...and I'm sure after reading it, Zsuzsy will regret having asked that fateful question...

      Hmmm... confusing...
      "Make a request specifically to the person who posted ahead of you..."

      I think I'm going to drop out, not because I don't understand the rules, but because I just am not in the mood for it.

        It's ok, dafla, I'll answer yours, too. smile

        Now, someone post and give dafla a request...we'll get this running smooth in no time.

        Maybe if you post something, but you're not posting to be in the Request train you can add something to the beginning of your post like I did here.

    Okay, I made one for InspirePub here about Wicca and the Goddess, which I saw she mentioned on her profile. I want to see her take on it! Have you guys seen her hubs? She's very money-savvy, especially with kids. It's incredible!

    1. spryte profile image88
      spryteposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Okay Kika - I got you lil sister!  smile

      Describe in detail what literary heroine most resembles you as you are now compared to which literary heroine you would most like to be and why

      With everything you've read, I bet you can come up with a really great hub on this topic.  Have fun with it!

      1. Kika Rose profile image82
        Kika Roseposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        mad Ah man, this one's so hard! I explain why in the hub, but DANG, SISTER!

        I love this topic! It totally made me want to go out and book shop. So I went, after work, and to my dismay, found nothing! Absolutely nothing! Target and Wal-Mart have failed me! Then again, Wally World always fails me, but Target?! yikes I nearly broke down and cried! I had to call my best friend before I went crazy! She didn't answer, so I sent her a text saying "Help! I'm having a literary crisis!" All she said back was, "Well, I'm not surprised. You do go through books like Pooh goes through honey." roll

        Thanks a lot, Spryte. Now I have to wait until Sunday to go book shopping down in the cities. Why couldn't you have waited until TOMORROW NIGHT to give me this request, so I wouldn't be biting my nails in anticipation as long? *pouts*

        lol I still heart you anyway. tongue

    LOL!  As soon as I saw that request go up I went..."Hey!  Somebody else has a pet squirrel named Fluffy...uh...uh oh."

    Thank you for that request...I think I'll have a lot of fun explaining that whole thing...

    Well, Spryte, I've finished your hub: Literary Heroines; Who I am and Who I'd like to be

    Of course I had this one nailed. It was hard as heck to pick my heroines, but I got it, and it's done. Now, fo' shizzle, send me $50 so I can buy more books. >D It is your fault for getting the book-shopping blood flowing. (lol! I'm only joking! Though $50 would be a very pleasant gift! ^_^ HINT HINT WINK WINK CHRISTMAS PRESENT IDEAS I LOVE BARNES AND NOBLES GIFT CARDS!!!)

    This is a great idea.  I'mma play soon as I catch up on some projects. 

    You guys need to make an RSS thingy like Ryan has for the hubmobs if there's anyway to do that (yes, I am ignorant and have no idea how any of this works.  I just drink and write, so... yeah, whatever).
