Well, if you know anyone close to you, of course you can e-mail them and invite them yourself.

Yes, I think the idea of inviting specific members from other sites is very touchy. If you know them personally, yes, of course, invite them. But just talking to people randomly might get us in some trouble with TW or YWS, or wherever. that we have to be very careful with. We don't want to hurt our relationships with other sites. I don't know if our letter to YWS is visible to all members--I don't think it is--but we probably should post it up so all of you can see what we wrote to them. Our goal is to create positive relationships with sites similar to ours not because we want to take their members, but because we feel that such relationships are beneficial to everyone across the board. People who pop into YWS or maybe feel out of place there might find our site more to their liking, or it could happen the other way around. So, it could be great for all of us to have those good relationships.

However, if you're in a writing group, or anything at all that you think you can give us a plug for without getting in trouble, please do so. Any good advertising is good!

I found a good way to put it on other sites with out causeing harm (lease no one has said anything to me yet) was just put it in your sig, like mine is

My blog, and random sites I hang around in.

random and sites are both links. one to YWS one to YWO (here). That way it isn't screaming it to the others but it also draws attention. Ok, that was random but sometimes random is good.

I don't think TW would allow that. I put this site as my homepage at TW - it only appears on my profile to show where I'm from - and Joe deleted it and sent me a nasty message. So...

For other sites, though, I think it would be a good idea. Just as long as it isn't blatant advertising. Like, if you made a brief list of your favorite links and put it in there, that's probably okay. Exactly what you suggested. *Thanks*

Are we allowed to slander other sites/people? I suppose not...

No, no slandering, please. We don't want any arguments breaking out.

No, I'd prefer we not have a slandering fest on here or anywhere, as much as I would like to see Joe gone. Let it work itself out. I may be talking to Imelda though, because quite honestly he's overstepping his bounds here.

I told Joe I didn't give a shit what he thought in reply to his cocky PM. Obviously, he loves his power on TW. Anyway, I don't think we should slander other sites. Despite TW having a few corrupt Forum Leaders, the majority of people on the site are good people. As for the YWS, they're as pure as angels on their site (because of the greater number of rules on the site), so, if any of them join this site, we can't expect any trouble, really.

Well, the problem is we're apparently not allowed to talk about YWO anymore on TW, which seems stupid because other sites can be discussed just fine. I think the failure with YWS on TW was more due to a lot of miscommunication, but I really wasn't very involved when all that happened. Hopefully, though, our interaction with YWS and the email/letter we sent them will come to great effect. We want a good relationship with them even if having one with TW seems difficult. We want peace and civility, but that means other places have to be that way too.
