Well I understand how you see it.
I am not an original member either.
It is not our perception, perhaps, but rather how people who have created something feel about it.

I suppose I am just saying that we should try to look at all sides.

I am a 'fixer' of things, remember? And I try to fix things or find solutions...

It's just how I work. PEACE AND HARMONY in all CAPS, bolded, and italicized

I don't know...anyway...

That was just my feeble attempt at trying to build a bridge.

Cagliostro, that wasn't about you...and Autorico you haven't done anything wrong either.

There's been stuff going on...I've had a stalker or 2...seems to have finally stopped, but who knows.
A lot of us have some pretty stressful real life stuff going on, which doesn't help.

I'm sorry, I shouldn't be speaking for Cody...and Night Star is our OP and Hostess here.

I personally am feeling like an outsider at this site lately. God forbid I show interest in a conspiracy theory...getting "shot down in flames" would be kinder than some of the comments. Perhaps some of us need a break.

There is obviously a need for chit-chat and camaraderie or we wouldn't still be here, with new members joining in. I think some people are feeling that the 'story' has become less important, but I don't want to speak for anybody else.

Maybe we should consider an alternate thread, a Shed Lounge for chit-chat only...? Just trying to think on my feet right now.
I'm sorry if this is an inadequate response, but I'm fumbling for words lately.
Let's be the family that pulls together and gets through. I need you guys.

A Friend of a child,
Seeing a love this way,
Feeling shame to this day,
Hearts of gold,
Hearts unfold,
Your never mist is a bliss,
The veil of love comes true,
Science is wrong,
Time moves fast,
Life can slow,
Love is real,
Love cannot be bought,
A thought can be bought,
This love is real,
How do I feel?
They tie the knot
The first kiss is bliss,
Your in my class
Time to never pass,
Never pass the first childhood of love!

Jacy I think The Shed Lounge would be an amazing thread.

( I will have to try to make it a little more personalized. )

Because sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name...lol

I love that picture.


Maybe Night Star can run the Shed and I will open the Lounge...? I haven't talked to her about it, but she may worry that all the chit-chat will leave.
I don't think so though. I think perhaps the writers will write...and the chatters would most likely chat both places.

Unfortunately the "Coffee Lovers Thread" was shut down...it was usually always busy.

This place started as a story...and ended up as a kind of haven for some people who enjoyed the company. I know, I was one of them. Nobody wants to lose that, I don't think.

We'll work it out. We've lasted over 2 years...that's something to be proud of, old member or new.

Yes You & Night can both Host, that would be perfect. Please, use the picture as our Lounge or I can play around with something else. I made that when SO wanted us to do the artwork that flashes behind the scenes. Syx & CC(she got to be a unicorn in her storyline) are the bartenders...LOL

I hope to start writing again soon, I just haven't had the time...but I know I will always read and post...

Why did they shut down the coffee thread? Are you not allowed just to have a chit chat thread...

Lol, I had a coffee thread before I knew you!

The coffee thread was shut down due to volume I believe, but sadly it happened at about the same time that The Shed got moved from 'short stories' (because at first, it was just my short story)...to chit-chat...(because even back then we were yacky-doodles, lol).

I don't think they wanted a bunch of chatty threads, which is a shame because they're popular. People want to talk and some of us spend a lot of time alone. The 'support' threads and 'birthday' or 'celebration' threads are a hit, and I know that people have messaged me and Night Star to start a thread for another member...so we have.

Besides, the serious threads are a crap-fest of arguing any more. Might as well have cyber drinks and laugh.

I think this is a great idea, if SO will allow it.

If this happens, I would be happy to hang out in both places.

As Q said, things change and I am sure that The Shed is not what it was at the beginning, which is in part due to the active users setting the tone.

I feel that this is not just affecting the Shed, but also ATS, where the content is user generated, which in turn sets the tone. Saw this article when I got up and it got me thinking BLT

ETA
Re 200 page limit - I noticed this link on BTS, with 1353 pages, and there were more - the thread is dead though.

Rambling now, got to get ready for the day.

Sorry Quantum, I completely forgot about that! Yes, and thank you for asking...I will do it tomorrow.


1984 (Bob)...It seems to happen in cycles...usually the quality goes down around here when the kids get out of school (North America) for the summer.
I just notice all the negativity...the naysayers and trolls...they ruin just about every thread I'm interested in (conspiracy side). I refuse to stoop to their level so I just bail out and leave.

Funny thing, I haven't written any storyline for a long time and was thinking about combining my character (& Sophie) and my love of time travel...and maybe have jacy & Sophie wake up in a different time in the Shed. It seems a little complicated in my head, but I might try to spit it out at some point, lol.

I just wanted to address your comment about SO allowing us another thread.

I think we Shed members have done a damn good job of keeping a thread alive (and HOT)...and we have contributed so many great writers and their work to the fiction writing contests.
I don't think there would be much activity in the contests if so many Shed folk hadn't participated.

Personally I think it's time he popped in to say "hello" and "good job you Shed-heads" or something, lol.

Here is a reply by one of the mods commenting on the thread I posted earlier -



If a member posts something that is within the T&C and is in the proper forum, what are we supposed to do? We're not going to start closing threads because some folks are tired of talking about certain topics. That is acceptable behavior on a private blog, not a community forum. If you read some threads in BB&Q and Rant it would appear that someone is sick of every topic that is discussed here. Transgender issues, politics, gray area/skunk works topics... there are portions of the membership sick of each of those. And yet these are the issues the world is discussing, so they're going to show up here as well. It's an election year so there's gonna be nasty political stuff. And so on.

I have never had anything to do with him so I do not know what he would think of the idea. But I agree - I see how many writers there are here, and I know that many of them enter the competitions.
