Is there now a character minimum for critiques? I understand why we would have one, but I dislike the idea.

I didn't institute one, so if there is, it's something I didn't do.

Just thought of something that might be of interest... On the "Care to Critique" option, have them sorted out by format? Some people are really specific with what they'll critique (short stories, novels, or poetry) and it would cater to those needs if they could click an option to see only poetry that needs critiquing, or only short stories. That way, we're not staring at a huge list, and it'd be easier to go through and filter what we're interested in at that time, or in general.

I'm going to bump this for the sake of being annoying. A lot of new folks have joined, and if you have any suggestions or wants for this site, please let me know now. I'm compiling a list of all the things I, the mods, Andy, and anyone else wants that we can reasonable do and probably should do.

That said, a whole hell of a lot of stuff is happening this summer, so, if you're overwhelmed already, maybe we're doing our jobs

Suggestion biatches.

I'm assuming you guys know what a snippet is? So I'm basically talking about a thread where we can post little snippets, little sections of our works that doesn't feel right, that just needs to be looked at rather than having a whole thread to it.

I'm talking like if I have an introduction to a story that isn't working, but I don't want to post the full story up, and I don't want to waste 10 points on a couple hundred words.

So if you have a solid problem, and you want a couple people to look over it and post a couple comments etc... Like a sandbox for children, for sections to be experimented and played with.

I dunno... It sounded better in my head.

EDIT: I would've made a thread already but I had no idea where to post it. Co-op?

EDIT 2: We could put our word war winnings in there... Lyk and I had a discussion about a place where we could put our word war sections somewhere.

EDIT 3: Of course you could just post in the experimental section... but I always got the impression that, that bit was purely for weird/out there writing. And all the experimental pieces seem to lack a crit-focus, so are opened up to any crit whereas I'm hinting at something which is specific.

I waz just brainztorming, don't shoot me.

I'm with Spacey, I like this idea. I think we should go for it.

Keep the suggestions coming. These are good. I want a nice fat list for Andy for summer

You know that upcoming events bar on the bottom. You should put the dates/times of the word wars in it, cause I completely forgot this weekend. And just general writing-y things, but I struggle to think what else we have other than word wars

Nope, don't know what you're talking about. I don't see it...

The one where it says, "Upcoming Events for the Next 7 Day(s):05-25-2010: Universal Day of the Jedi"

Just a small thing but might help people remember when the word wars are.

EDIT: And maybe closing dates of YWO competitions/SBS or something.
