You're excited. You have just been invited to/accepted to/rejected from your # 1 schools. You want to post it ont he respective "Wall of" post. You want us to love you. We WANT to love you. How do you get us to love you? Keep the damn bold on the schools when you post. Here's how you do it.

1. You go to the last person who posted on the long list. Make sure it is the last so no one gets cut off.
2. You click on the "Reply" not the quick reply, not the post new reply
3. When the list appears in your text box notice the Quote and /Quote at the beginning and end of the post.
4. Delete those quotes including the brackets.
5. Add your name to the school who loves you/hates you/isn't quite sure what to think of you.
6. Please post the school name in the title area. So we aren't scrolling through hundreds of names to find yours. We promise we will scan down and look.
7. Post your fame!!!!

Good luck. God speed. We do love you, we just like bold more.

thank you! and be absolutely, absolutely sure that you're replying to the last thread. otherwise, you cut out some people's data, which isn't nice.

Amen. I second the motion that this should be stickied . . . non-bolding and cutting people off used to bother me so much I'd run around fixing lists I came across . . . fortunately I managed to kick that bit of compulsion . . . but it never would have been an issue if people would just take the above advice.

can't there be an easier way? Like creating ONE list that we just had our names to? Like some kinda spreadsheety thing or something? Where is a computer wizard when you need one...

Mmmm, sticky mods.
And I second Flop's idea. Make it idiot proof. Lists suck. I want matrices of words, beautiful words. And some lines. Maybe sundry punctuation symbols.

I suggested that in the "suggestions thread" put up last month. It could be done by giving the OP the option to allow others to edit the post, much like a wiki on wikipedia. Below there'd be a list of edits so there's accountability.
