"I haven't heard from [blank] in a while,"
"I may have not-so-accidentally told them about your secret popcorn stash,"
"You what!!" -- OohLookShiny

"You told Kel about my popcorn stash."

"Um. In my favour, I was mad at you at the time."

"You told Kel about my popcorn stash."

"I was really mad at you?"

"You told Kel about my popcorn stash."

"Yeah. I did. It might have been a mistake."

"No shit, Mal, he's on a diet! And that stuff's hardly fit for human consumption! I use it to make fish food for cryin' out loud!"

"I said I was mad at you..."

"Yes, but what did Kel do to you, Mal? He's gonna gorge himself on that stuff and shatter his diet! Because you were angry at me?"

"I don't think when I'm angry. I'm sorry."

Lynn folded her arms. "Well. You and I are going to my stash and dragging Kel away from it before he really hurts himself. And then you are going to find a new hiding place because we both know Kel can't be trusted."

"Have you thought of not bringing the popcorn home?" suggested Mal. She was still edging away from Lynn's wrath.

"I work in a cinema. One gigantic bag of stale popcorn a week is an automatic perk. And Kel's smart enough to figure out if I'm using a rental place for our fish food factory."

Mal started making her way towards the stash. "Aquaponics is cool and all, I know... but sometimes I think Kel's getting tired of fish and vegetables."

I think it would do well to have a greater spread of time between post creation. :)

My office is an oven. Spending any more time than I have to in it is torture.

Sorry, friendo, but I must post as fast as I am able.

That's too bad.

Well the numbers don't help you actually. Posting more than 4 per day gets fewer rewards that's if it's garnering any votes at all. As an active curator here it's nearly impossible to vote on more than 1 post from an author per day. I think good content is going wasted without rewards because it's impossible to keep up with higher number of postings from any author in a day! But ofcourse, it's your call entirely and good luck. :)

If I could unriddle how Streemian worked, I'd be set. But that thing boggles my tiny mind. Last time I tried to schedule something, it's default date was two weeks prior, and the default time was four hours ahead.

No help page. No manual for dummies. Just plug in your post, attempt to schedule it, and watch it fail.
