Instructions for creating a B-Sides account.

Since there is no General or Help Forum here that I can find. I shall attempt to appease the moderators by phrasing this in the form of a suggestion.

I would like to suggest that instructions for creating a B-Sides account be posted somewhere on the site! If someone were to sign up for a $10 a month recurring donation and then not receive any instructions for creating a B-Sides account, they might find it worrisome!

However, if they did this over the start of a three day weekend, the end of which is famous for not doing any work what so ever, and then complained about it. This could be interpreted as impatience, for which they would like to humbly apologize!

Hmmm. I wondered why that loud, cackling laugh was heading for Mexico... :? :)

I cannot help with the B-sides sign up, but I can welcome you to the forums, Evolution13.

Instructions for getting into B-Sides have been thoughtfully designed to require Seekers to join and post on the DC Forum, see?
(God, I'm so proud of that! :D )

Step 2: After being welcomed by ASID, locate his Twit-Fic Sizing Tool and compose your request for B-Sides access using exactly 100 characters.
Step 3: Write a Drabble.
Step 4: Post something really weird in DrabbleNews.
Step 5: Beseech The Wisest Stone for the Key.
Step 6: Grow a moustache, and name it Beatrice. St. Tom will then PM you your password.

Since automating this process would require extensive reprogramming of your brain, and a 12 volt battery, most folks are happy to keep the analog Beta process. Plus, you then get to decide the Steps for the next subscriber.

Thusly, you are completely assimilated.

Hi Evolution13! Thanks for being awesome and becoming a $10/mo subscriber. Norm is at Worldcon this weekend, and I'm sure got slightly overloaded. I apologize for the delay.
I'm PM'ing you the instructions.

You could at least have waited until he got to Step 3.:cry:

Just chuck a few bones down for me to gnaw on once in a while. I'm not demanding.

And to think that once I was a perfectly respectable moustacheless gal. And now look at me! I'm one step away from full assimilation. :shock:

So I haven't been around in forever, and I'm afraid I might have missed any emails that went out about creating an account. In other words, HELP.

Hey, cinammon, long time, glad you're back.
Just sign up for a $10 monthly paypal donation, and norm will send you a thank you note with usernam and password for b sides.

Or even better, see my six handy steps above.

Dude, I'm from Minnesota. We always get the last thank you in. It might happen at a time and in a place you don't expect, but it WILL happen.

Thus we have entered Drabblecast legend and lore. We need video evidence of the moustache, FYI, and it better introduce itself.
