Well, Imelda doesn't like us stealing members from TW, but oh well, she'll just have to deal with it.

Well, I don't consider us stealing members if we invite people from TW. Besides, of the people who might join, I have no clue how many will be active. We invited a few people already from TW. Mostly they were people who supported Andrew and I way back when. We shouldn't go about it with the intent to steal members, but more with the intent to offer a new place for people to put their work.

Edit: Fixed that, meant shouldn't, not should!

Are you missing out words here, Shaun? You say you want to steal members.

I know a bunch of people like that, once of whom just left it for no reason. I'll go contact some of them.

EDIT: Does anyone remember Ben (thecritic)? He was someone who left at some point, saying TW was going downhill. Should we invite him?

AbsolouteWrite also has this section for press releases:

Yeah...I'll try to talk to some. But the only one of them I talk to a lot is like SnipSnap....and we don't really want him here.

Ben was cool. I never knew him, but he had the right ideas. If only we still had contact with him...

Ah, voilą! After some snooping on the Members List of TW, logged off, of course (), I've discovered he has a Skype profile. Not sure if he uses it still, but it's a lead. He also has a WordPress account.

He abandoned his blog a long time ago. I send an e-mail to his most recent address yesterday - hopefully he'll be on Skype and we could contact him that way. Nice work, Shadow.
