Final Goodbyes

Hello. I realize it's a new school year now, or more specifically, eighth grade. I'd like to first off thank everyone that participated in this and those who helped me keep control of it. Now, I'm going to address a few things, tie up some loose ends. There have been some people asking if I'm going to make another website, eighth grade edition. There have also been a few that requested for me to make it. I'm sorry to disappoint, but as of right now, I have no plans to create a new website. For one, I see no point as Edmodo serves the same purpose. Also, I don't think I have as much time as I did last year to update a website periodically. If anyone really believes that a website is needed, they can make it themselves. 821 has a website so for anyone is 723 that moved into 821, you can check out William's website here. Again, this may not be a final decision, but this is a final goodbye on this website. Thank you all for your time and consideration.

War Hawk Advisor: Don't be afraid to speak your mind, even if it is dislike. Chances are, the new couple won't last too long. However, if you are really concerned, you might as well drop a pie on their head every time they walk into class TOGETHER, so they realize that as long as they are alone, they'll be pie-free. Works every time.

This next song is quite underrated, as most good songs are. Of course, this is my opinion. Listen to it for yourself.

Song: Awake by Secondhand Serenade

Last but not least, this is one of my favorite songs(I have a lot). I believe that she is an amazing vocalist, and not only that, but the lyrics are powerful.

War Hawk Advisor: Get two scantrons and use one as a fake and the other as your own. Leave the fake within seeing distance and watch the suspected cheater. If they start copying you, yell "CHEATER" as loud as you can, and rip up their scantron. Replace it with your fake one, and say "You would've gotten a zero either way." You may then proceed to snap your fingers and walk out of the school with all the sass in the world.

IMPORTANT NEWS!

I have figured out a system in which I could put moderators onto this website, however, this requires your cooperation. First of all, if you know that I don't trust you, you probably have a low chance of being appointed into a mod. Below is a list of requirements in order to request moderator status.

Requirements Needed For Moderator Status:
1) You need to be a trustworthy person.
2) You have been banned no more than once in the chat box.
3) You need to know how to write up posts in the correct format(homeworks, reminders, daily events, etc.) as well as remember to copy all homework and reminders for the day.
4) You need to be good at following instructions.
5) You need to know when to kick/ban someone and how to properly control the chat box.
6) You need to remember to sign "~(insert your name), Moderator" after all daily events you posted. 
7) You must have a Google Account, or this won't work. 
8) You still have to follow the rules.
9) You cannot share moderator status with anyone other than yourself.
10) Remember that I still have the power to de-mod you as well as ban you on the chat box.


Yes, I realize that this is a lot of requirements, but they don't ask much of you. Remember that moderator status only allows you to write and edit your OWN posts. The only time I need to you write up a post is when it is after 5:00PM on a weekday and I have not posted the homework yet. Under those circumstances, you have my permission to post the homework and reminders as well as the daily event, if you know how the format for that specific event is like. If you fit all requirements(I will be checking), you may hand me a slip of paper with your name, email address(NOT YOUR PASSWORD!!), and why you should become a moderator(this, of course, is optional, however it may convince me if well written). This slip of paper will be given to me, in person, no later than April 25. However, the sooner you give it to me, the sooner you may become a moderator. 

Note: This whole notice will be posted on the sidebar as a reminder just in case you cannot find this post later on. Thank you for your cooperation.

Ask The War Hawks Thursday

[DISCLAIMER: Not actual good advice. Do not follow. Merely for entertainment. Also, the problems are made up.] 




Anon: My dog keeps peeing on my stuff and when I scold him, he just pees more. How can I make him stop?




War Hawk Advisor: Well, judging from what you wrote, your dog is a male. The solution is actually very simple if you follow the following steps. First, get a small pillow about the size of your dog that you don't need anymore. Get duct tape and tape it under the dog. Remember to wrap the tape at least 10 times around the body! Tape up every opening so that the pee will be trapped there. Now he won't pee on your stuff anymore! (Optional: Change the pillow every so often, but remember to rip the tape off fast. Your dog needs some punishment too!)

Trickster Tuesday

Because of how much of a trickster I am, this won't contain any pictures. Instead, this will contain a way to provide clean water to people who don't have the said clean water. Unfortunately for some of you, you need a phone. I'm not sure if it HAS to be an iPhone, but you can try anyway. Go on safari or whatever your phone uses and go to the link that I will attach below. UNICEF Tap Project is working to help the 768 million people around the world without access to clean water. This year you can help by taking a challenge to give up access to something far less vital than water–your cell phone. For every 10 minutes you don't touch your phone, Giorgio Armani Fragrances and other generous donors can fund one day of clean water for a child in need. Ten minutes. That's all I ask. Hopefully you guys will find the heart in you to give those who are in need while we take for granted what is provided to us every day of our lives.
