I hadn't really noticed until lately but when you leave a comment on someone's story there is no actual "post" button. You have to hit return/enter to post it. I have noticed several people, myself included, hitting return to try and start a new paragraph in their comment and accidentally posting it only to have to delete and start again. Just find it to be an odd little omission on such an important part of the site. I'm sure gav could whip up a post button, no sweat. Then we could actually have spaces in our comments.

Confidently, clearly and with no fear of rejection. Pick the right time to do so as well. After you have made her laugh or after a pleasant exchange or sharing of interests would be ideal.

I am so excited about placing second in this competition! This one had a lot of entrants and a lot of quality. Thank you for picking my story!

I want to say thank you to everyone that read my story, voted and commented on it. All of your comments mean a lot to me even though I don't say so all the time.

Congratulations Liz, your story was so well put together, hot and vivid. You're a writer I look up to a lot. You have so much talent at such a young age. One day you're going to look back at these stories and say, "that's when I was just aiiight". Nice going young blood. :)

Buz, you have grown quite a bit from the first thing I ever read of yours. You always strive to improve and your story this time was really fun to read. You're a lighthearted, enjoyable, entertaining storyteller. I am very happy and honored to have placed in this competition along side you.

I also want to mention that Milik_the_Red had a very realistic, dark and gritty story that I enjoyed and could have easily been in the top three.

Saucymh is also a writer I was not familiar with who totally caught me off guard with her story. It was very very good and I thought it was going to place as well. I look forward to reading more of her writing.

Jaymal, always a serious contender. Next time dude!

Thanks for holding these comps Nicola. It keeps the creative juices flowing. I credit your site and these competitions for helping me improve as a writer. It's invaluable to me.

Reread all of your posts to me.

I will not apologize for being human. Yes, I missed the part about what you quoted being from the Gold Members Thread. So what? Do you know what that makes me... HUMAN. Nothing more. I have not asked you a question, I have made rhetorical statements. You're intelligent enough to be familiar with them sir. However, I wouldn't want to assume that I am giving you too much credit.

The only one with an unhealthy obsession is you. You think everything is about you. It's not. My suggestion was about the site... not you. IT was a suggestion that Nicola made, that you piggy backed on but because I said it was good, you went on the attack. It seems you don't like the fact that I might agree with you on something. Yet, you keep attacking me. I have asked you to leave me alone. I have asked you allow this thread to return to its purpose. That is not asking too much.

Nicola... if you don't like the suggestion... then so be it. I shared my experience with it from other sites. I know this is your site. You created this thread for Members to make suggestions... not give you orders. I hope that what I said in regards to the "Featured Story or Poem" did not come across as an order. If it did, I am sorry. If my suggestion is similar to MF's, then even better. That means great minds think alike. If you still don't like it... then that is fine as well. I assure you... my feelings will not be hurt in the least. I promise.

You are seriously deluded.

Please don't compare your mind to mine. Really, don't.

If you don't like me responding to you...then don't come asking for more. It's that simple. You can go on with your cringe-worthy sycophantic tangents without including me.

You insist on calling me names, insulting me, and trying to belittle me.

What name did I call you? I don't see any...

I didn't know at the time it was an idea Nicola suggested two years ago. I simply voiced my opinion, just as you did. I'm getting tired of your constant insults and name calling. If anything, you should be pleased someone might have agreed with you. I did not contradict you on any level, MF. I might not agree with your idea fully, or have a slightly different suggestion, but I did not contradict you.

Maybe you should start reading threads before you start typing... Just yesterday you were cussing and yelling at me about a thread I started claiming someone else started it. It's really weird... Like, how do you get it so wrong? It really does seem like you see red when you see me post and your thoughts get jumbled up.

And seriously (maybe I am giving you more credit than you deserve) but seriously it's all there in my original post. You obviously read it or else you would have not posted what you did. Just makes everything you say ring insincere.

Are you claiming it was yours then? Or have you never heard of the phrase, "Great minds think alike"? I made a suggestion. It was not the same as yours. I amended it. All you do are doing is tearing it apart. So, if Nicola likes THE idea, with or without anything I've added... great.

Now, I have asked nicely before... so once again I say... please leave me alone.

Your reading comprehension skills are appalling... No, I am not claiming it is mine... Nicola posted that idea two years ago. Nothing was done with it for reasons unknown. I saw it and I added to it because it was an idea I thought had potential and posted to see if Nicola would reconsider her original idea of a featured story banner that would rotate with the featured member banner like it does when there is a comp going on. I added to her idea because it was never added to the site in hopes that maybe with a new spin it would be looked into again.

What you did was nothing... It's obvious you just posted to try and contradict what I said and that is fine but by doing so you also added nothing to the table. Nothing at all.

On a side note. You ask me questions then say leave me alone... Make up your mind.

Please leave me alone, MF.

If Nicola likes my idea... then she will do something with it. If not, that is her choice. This thread is about making suggestions about improvements or features you (the members of this site) would like to see added. It is not for you to try and convince people of anything else, especially your nonsense.

Go in peace MF and please... leave me alone.

It's not your idea though... That was an idea that has been around for a long time... It was never implemented. I saw it in a thread and I thought it was a good but flawed idea. I quoted it and actually tried to add a different spin to it, bringing it back to the forefront. You did brought nothing to the table that wasn't already there.

You are free to go and act like a martyr now.

I chose not to quote you before for a reason. As for now and from here forward, one typo or anything else I say doesn't require a comment from you.

Looks like someone didn't learn the golden rule when they were in school lol. Not so fun when someone does it to you, huh?

It also doesn't matter if you quote me or not when you follow me around and post because I posted pretty much. Your obsession with me clouds your understanding of this point. I don't mind it, just be sincere with what you say...or at least don't be so transparent about it. It insults my intelligence and anyone else's who reads it.

On to more serious matters.

Perhaps there is a way that the "Featured Stories" of Gold & Silver members could be featured. It might (and no Nicola, I'm not trying to tell you how to run your site, it's jut a suggestion) encourage more Gold and Silver memberships if there was a chance for their piece be featured as a "Featured Story" and/or "Featured Poem" (something I forgot to mention before.)

It's only a thought. This thread is about improvements for the site. I don't for one second think every suggestion will be entertained. I spoke about my experience with other sites. I will add that seeing your own story as a "Featured Story" is a really cool feeling. The story in particular of mine wasn't my highest scoring nor was it my lowest scoring. My best guess it was just the lucky one that was picked that day (that moment if you will.) If this happens... great! If not... no biggie.

What you're saying is that you would like the site to suggest stories to readers based purely on luck. You want luck to be the basis of selection and not skill. What that does is take all credibility away from the suggestions or "featured" story. It's like walking into a book store and rather than having some recommended books from staff based purely on their enjoyment of the book or a bestseller section... You have a section with a book chosen at random from publishers who paid to be in the pool of random books. It makes no sense from an integrity standpoint. I know I wouldn't take those suggestions seriously.

On tumblr they have something similar. They recommend blogs to people. Most of the time they are picked by staff after they come on their radar from getting a lot of notes or being well put together or being original content etc... You can feel safe to assume you will see quality content when you click on a featured blog. Now sometimes the featured blog is paid for by Denny's, for example, or a new movie or something. When this is the case they put a ($) by it to let people know it's paid for. I'm all for that... Have an actual credible featured story based on merit and not luck and if you want, have another banner or a side bar or whatever where someone could pay 50 bucks or whatever amount to have their story there for a week or a month or whatever. Would people actually pay for that? Would people click on the "paid for" featured story? Who knows... Seems to work on some sites. Would making the featured story based on only luck, like you suggest, make it lose credibility with readers? Yeah, probably.

Okay... I've gone though over 30 pages in this thread and I can't find the quote from Nic I wanted to reference so I'll try and wing it.

Nicola had mentioned looking into adding a gold member's story to the top of the front page in the rotation with the "Feature Members" box. I will add I think this is a fantastic idea. There are other sites (no, I won't be rude and mention their names) that do something similar. I know this because at one time, one of my "older" stories was selected for this rotation (I'm sure more have been... but it was the ONLY time I saw it.) While it would be great if they were RRs or EPs... I think (and this is strictly my opinion) that should not be a requirement. Now... there coulde (and I stress the word could) be a "Featured RR" a "Featured EP" and a "Featured Story" that makes this rotation. I'm guessing not all RRs and EPs were written by Gold members. However... if this is asking too much (as it is a lot to ask for)... then just a "Featured Gold Member's Story" would be fine. This way those members who have been her longer than say... 6 months... and have more than 10 stories (and poems) written can get some love on a great story they wrote a while ago.

Now, I realize this runs the risk of a "less" than stellar story making this rotation, but really, that's a subjective issue. A story I think is amazing might suck to another reader. Readers have stories they avoid for a reason (category, tags, etc.) and thus, this rotation will give older pieces some attention. No, not everyone will "love" the story that is picked... but maybe... just maybe... those older stories will get some new readers. My 2 cents

There's no e at the end of could and your overuse of ellipses is ridiculous...

The quote from Nicola is from a similar thread as this but from the gold member section. It says so right there in my post. You didn't have to go back 30 pages to look for it LOL.

There's probably a reason this was never implemented. (In my own opinion) One of them is probably that the number of gold member authors is relatively low compared to the total membership of the site. Just a couple of the gold member authors have probably posted more stories than all the other's combined. You do the math as to what would become of this "featured story banner". Not many authors have more than a couple EPs or a handful of RRs. It's a much better way to give new readers a sampling of quality stories from a diverse set of writers. If they like them they can then go and read the rest of their stories. It makes way more sense.

We are also considering adding a gold member's story to the top of the front page, in rotation with the "Featured Members" box. Each page refresh would pull a gold member's story, at random, so old and new stories will have a chance of featuring right at the top of the site.

This was a pretty cool idea. It would be even better if it was only the RR or EP stories that would show up instead of random gold member stories making sure the site isn't featuring a crappy story to readers. The site would actually be recommending recommended stories and editors picks to people.

I originally replied to you in the gold members thread and this was brought up.

While there are some stories that may not be appealing to the masses, I'm hoping that 'crappy' stories don't get published here. I love this idea as well and hope that if it's implemented, all Gold members have equal opportunity to be featured. It's a Gold perk, not an authors' perk.

This was my further elaboration on what I originally said.

Crappy maybe was the wrong word... And I hope that it isn't implemented for all gold members. It is true that some gold members publish stories that are not great, shitty even. I was suggesting that this would be great but only stories that have been deemed "good". A perk for every author, as long as they write something good. A story site featuring a random story isn't all that effective once readers realize that the story featured has a good chance of being a whammy. A featured story feature should be there to recommend good writing and not be a welfare for gold status authors.

Also, some gold members have a ton of stories. Some publish every day... They would always be the featured story.

Maybe I should post this in the site improvements and features thread.

I really do think it would be a cool idea to feature stories that are RR and EPs. That way you won't see substandard stories or the same author all the time due to the large amount of published work throwing the numbers off in their favor.
