But before I stop for now, I must ask what does an additional moderator mean to you writers? What exactly do you expect from the moderators of this forum to do?
Now what I would like to see happen, is that members/writers stop whining, look thru the forum, look at the stories, offer criticism or praise on short stories written by fellow member no matter how old. Also start writing and collaborating on existing stories.
"ATS Fiction", fiction.abovetopsecret.com (fiction @ ats), ATW (above top writers), all seem to be more interesting names that compliment the core site.
Finally, WW, I disagree with your last point. I DISCOURAGE writers from posting ANY material to the ATS forums until we have basic, proper ammenities. Read the stories, U2U advice or criticism, yes. Post new material? No. I refuse, for one, as a protest. I have written and posted approximately fifty thousand words of material on another writing site since the beginning of the month. On JUST that one site, over ONE HUNDRED reviews. Over FIVE THOUSAND views. All of it clear, concise, and neatly ordered.
4.) You will not use profanity in our forums, and will neither post with language or content that is obscene, sexually oriented, or sexually suggestive nor link to sites that contain such content. Images of or links to gratuitous gore and/or mutilation are strictly forbidden. This applies to material posted to collaborative fiction and member short story forums. You will also not select usernames that contain profanity.
