Or Dickkens.  Fitzgeralld, maybe.
 
2014-02-13 12:06:34 PM
I feel pretty good confident about my "Nick ate an onion sandwich" headline.
 
2014-02-13 12:10:35 PM
There's nothing to writing a good headline.  All you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed.

Rusty Shackleford: Or Dickkens.  Fitzgeralld, maybe.


Dikkins with 2 Ks? The well-known Dutch author of "Rarnaby Budge"?

I'll stick with the drunken Charles Bukowski method.

You can see my turtles in my pro.

Too long.  I did not read it.

Not today on Fark, there approving everything people submit.
 
2014-02-13 01:55:25 PM
Or you could:

1- include the word RACISM in the headline.
2- submit any article that will result in lotsa "fark the south" posts.

There's still no replacement for actual copy editors; a copy editor would have caught that subby can't spell Hemingway's name correctly.

The headline of I greened never, but never submissive is I, so the sense of the mods is correct.

"Ben and Adam Long put the site together entirely with front end JavaScript "

They seem to have obfuscated the JavaScript so you would really have to work to tell exactly what they are doing, though you can tell somewhat by reading the code. For example:

Subby needs an editor--to catch his misspelling of "Hemingway."

So, here's a question for those who might know.
If a news article is submitted and is not greened, does that prevent the same article from being greened if someone else submits it with a better headline?
 
2014-02-13 02:48:06 PM
I've had what I thought were some sure things redlighted since dropping TF, so fark it.

Does it simply remove all adjectives?
 
2014-02-13 04:25:47 PM

reillan: Does it simply remove all adjectives?


It doesn't do anything to adjectives. It is quite harsh on your use of adverbs, though. I can't really argue with that. Adverbs tend to be a crutch.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Why do Libs suck so bad?  To die.  In the rain.  Alone


Seconded.
Also, another great way to get greens is to fellate the low level Fark party apparatchiks like WTKR-mitter, and get a shiatty Norfolk, VA story published - up to 3x daily at one point.

Just toying with the Hemingway app: It hated Lord of The Rings, Ivanhoe, all of Shakespeare, and Things Fall Apart.

It LOVED Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird.

the assignment was to take the hill there were four of us five if you counted Vicente but he had lost his hand when a grenade went off and couldn't fight as he could when I first met him and he was young and brave and the hill was soggy from days of rain and it sloped down toward a road and there were many german soldiers on the road and the idea was to aim for the first group and if our aim was true we could delay them

/who wants to fight?
