Time to blow off some steam. I write. I love writing. But sometimes, writing gets on my nerves.By far, the biggest thing I hate: writing is is a presentation of my ideas on a stupidly huge time delay. It's like, "Oh hey! Remember that awesome scene…Continue

That's something that has been suggested in the distant past, but with recent hosting changes we'd definitely consider it! In fact we're planning to decide on some new content for the Story Corner this weekend, so we'll have that in mind. Thanks for the suggestion!

Has it ever been considered to have a ‘Raw and bleeding’ section in the story corner for writers who are not as gifted or knowledgeable as the more advanced writers?

Less proficient writers may be more willing to add their works without the fear of lying under the shadows of the better pieces of fiction. At the same time the novice writers would be able to edit and re work their stories, subject to advice and comments from other writers opinions. At the same time as without causing far better quality pieces written by other members to be  bumped down the queue.

So, for reasons completely unrelated to the Story Corner, I have been forced out of the host position. Okan, best of luck to you bud

i'd be happy to help, Zonnonn. Send me a friend request and PM me the story, and I'll see if I can help.

Would anyone be willing to read over my story. It's not finished yet, but I'm stuck at what to write and another persons insight would be helpful.

is this place still alive?

Comment by Okan-Zeeus on September 13, 2014 at 10:50pm

@Borommakot

I'm not sure why the old archive relies on links. I wasn't around when that was made.

Technically the old tags are still in effect, but they're not being enforced. They still function properly. Though you bring up a good point - using links instead of tags is very inefficient.

Perhaps I will delete the old pages and create a new "Old Archive" page that contains links for each alphabetized tag.

Comment by Borommakot on September 10, 2014 at 1:25pm

They're the same variables, though. I just assume that the old archive system is still in use alongside the new tags because it's still there.

Instead of just using the tags (A-C, D-F, etc.), which would display the correct list of ToCs and update automatically, someone has to update links on eleven different pages to make sure new ones are accounted for.
