My time as Quotemeister is over and it is time for a new one. Think you fit the bill? It's a heady power, this quoting thing, and requires very high standards. Send an audition entry with ten relatively recent quotes from diaries (Diaryland or not) and send it to quoted (at) diaryland (dot) com by July 30th.
By auditioning, you are agreeing to:
Choose funny or well-written quotes.
Maintain the Big List to the best of your ability and use your html-fu to fix the template when it inexplicably breaks.
Not pick your friends or from the same twelve diaries every single update.
Use quotes that are submitted by readers and attribute them correctly.
Put aside political or religious views and post strictly on merit or cleverness of the quote in question.
Send out a notify to the list when you've updated and also a notice to the quoted folks, provided that you can find their address somewhere on their site.
Update more often than I did (which can't be hard), at the very least once a month, but preferably much more more often.
I hate to say this, but if I don't get any submissions or if the submissions I get are lame, then quoted will be given a stately burial.
