Topic Which improvements or features would you like to see added?
13 Sep 2016 12:45
Thank you, Ping, while others may bash or try to say that it is "sour grapes" that you brought this conversation/thread up. I would like to thank you.
This thread was created for an idea for improving the website. But yet I have seen MANY ideas get criticized for being "sour grapes" or hurt feelings just because it goes against the status quo. News Flash!!! Not everything that runs counter to the "norm" is bad. Some people might just want to see things different.
Now with me saying that. Do I feel in any way that ping or any others might have rubbed people the wrong way by bringing something up that seems to be a delicate subject? Absolutely. If that's the case, this thread should have a disclaimer saying that we can bring up suggestions as long as it doesn't go against *insert whatever the case maybe* otherwise close the thread and be done.
Tired of everytime someone has something to say that people (often the same people) don't like. That we are quick to jump down their throat, often by degrading said person or by name calling. I am quite sure most of the people on here are over 18 and graduated high school. So I am pretty positive that we can finally cut the name calling out?
As for the subject Ping has brought up. I entered three competitions NONE of them with the intent of winning. To tell the truth, I entered all of them because of the subject matter. I don't know if they made it to the final grade as I have never told a friend or anyone about them or told people to go vote.
I have mentioned to others who I think would be in the top 10 without reading their stories. Mainly basing it on names and how I know they write. In this past competition, I got six of the top ten. (pat on the back).
In closing, like Buz and Raven and other mods have said if you are going for the gusto aka the winning entry. Do the homework, write the story, and put your all into it. Not saying it's a guarantee. But it sure won't hurt. If you're like me, then write because you like to write. I don't care if I win, or if I get in the top ten. Sure as hell would be nice. But I LOVE the comments; I LOVE to see other writers praise or critic a story that I have written.
The competition is what it is. You can think it's fair, unfair, biased or nonbiased. Last time I looked no one has said you absolutely have to enter. You enter on your own accord and are judged on what you put into it.
Sorry for the rant.
now i have forgotten what i came here for

Not religious at all, just a Christian. Being religious is man attempting to please God, being a Christian is believing God. Yes, in a lot of things.
