How Do I Know When the List Will Reset Again?

next update, last update, next reset

  • On the bottom of each page is a listing of the LAST UPDATE and NEXT UPDATE, which is when hits in/out are updated and approved blogs added.

  • The NEXT RESET is the date and time when the hits in/out will be zeroed.

  • After RESET, all the blogs disappear from the top list. You must click in from your blog on the voting banner to have your banner reappear on the top list.

  • Note that your blog banner does not appear immediately, but will appear at the NEXT UPDATE time.

Family Memories . . .

DEADLINE April 25, 2008 Midnight

This Quarter's BLOG VILLAGE Carnival is focusing on FAMILY MEMORIES and will be hosted on Dirty Butter's YESTERDAY'S MEMORIES blog.

Please help publicize this carnival. You do not have to be a member to submit a carnival entry. Just link to the blog of a member of Blog Village and follow the rules (below).

So, how about sharing stories of your childhood, or maybe how you met your spouse. Does your family have special bonding rituals? Do you have some "strange" family members who help to make your family unique? How about sharing lessons you've learned from past generations. Are you into genealogy? Does your family story include adoption, blended families, or divorce? You name it - if it has to do with your family, past or present, we'd love for you to share.

If Your Blog Is Not on the Top List . . .

There are three reasons for your blog not appearing on the Blog Village Top List:

  1. Your blog has not had one click in/hit in since the beginning of the month.
  2. Your blog does not have the Blog Village Banner displayed.
  3. Your blog may have been deleted if number 1 or 2 is true.

Before you email ADMIN with an angry email, please do the following:
  1. Check your blog for the Blog Village Banner.
  2. Click your banner.
  3. If the code for the banner is correctly installed, it will take you through the gateway page and register as a "click in" or "hit in."
  4. It may take up to 30 minutes for your blog to appear on the top list.
You must do this at the first of every month when the Blog Village Top List resets.

If your blog does not have a Blog Village banner:
  1. Login to the Blog Village Top List and get the code.
  2. Install code on your blog.
  3. Click the banner on your blog.
  4. Enter through the gateway page.
You must do this every month when the Blog Village Top List resets.

  • Do not copy a banner from another blog.
  • The banner must be encoded with YOUR ID number.

Every month, you must click in from your blog. Any blog not clicking in will be deleted the following month.

This is not a new policy.
