  •  If a post goes straight to the... (12+ / 0-)

    ...front page, it doesn't come with a tip jar. So that's generally why that happens. In a news cycle like we're in now, generally my posts are either ones that don't need to go up quickly, in which case they don't get published until they are scheduled on the front page, or they are time sensitive, in which case by the time I'm done with them, they are pretty much ready to just go up on the FP.

    When the campaign gets more in swing (like in 2012), I tend to publish more posts immediately, rather than have them wait for the front page, in which case they have more tip jars.

    Hopefully that wasn't too down in the weeds!

    And thanks for the kind words!

      Not a question, just an observation: too many kossacks don't get that tip jars time out after a day. I have actually been in threads where people are going, "Why can't I tip the tip jar?" and I check the time and yup, it was posted two or three days ago.

      I think someone should object to this!

      (That someone ain't me, though: my next tip jar will have timed out about three days before it goes "live" and I don't care.)

      English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education - sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street. E. B. White
