* I must vanish for a while, due to school/family/work stuff. When I return, I hope to be more aggressive about reviewing articles, as we need more reviewers helping out in that regard. I shall return. --Bddpaux (talk) 19:55, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm still pretty much in a state of 'vanishment'! --Bddpaux (talk) 16:47, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
I am still very much ALIVE, but my head is getting crushed in my graduate studies right now, so: I will see you all just a bit down the road! --Bddpaux (talk) 21:32, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

Absolutely free advice for any new writers here:

  • Within the first 3 sentences of any article you're writing, ask yourself, "Would a school teacher in Manila care about this? What about a waiter in Sydney or a young mother in Hong Kong?" The answer should be a quick 'Yes', or you might be wasting your time here: this is an international news site.
  • I live by this rule about articles/submissions here: Get it, write it, submit it, move on. You'll be helping yourself if you adopt that motto too.
