As a writer, and one who participates in the Voyages of the Penelope I will throw down my opinions here.
A.) Why do you want it moved? This has been asked many times to you OP and other than content indexing you have yet to answer it. Content indexing is
fine and all but why do you care? Not to mention it's down near the bottom of the list of boards and out of eye-sight for most. What's your reason
for noticing this and making a point of making a thread about it? Does this really seem like it's important to you? I'm curious as to why it struck
a chord is all.
B.) I like it where it is. I use ATS almost exclusively. It's easier for me to click on MyATS and see the updates then have to flip flop. This is a
personal, selfish reason but most of the writers there are frequenters of ATS and I'm sure they share this sentiment to one degree or another. Just
C.) Many of the threads on ATS are a poster contributing a theory, an idea, a proposterous over-the-top experience, or something to that effect. This
site is about discussing ideas and opinions, while also keeping up to date with politics and conspiracy theories. In my personal writings you will
find allusions to current events and my feelings on those. Is this any different to your opinion on the governmental systems or UFOs? I express myself
better through writing poetry and stories and I put my prose away on the boards of Coll. and Short Stories as that's where my posts fit. I'd say
that's content indexing no?
I'm not trying to attack but your single reason of content indexing has not convinced me and seeing as how site Moderators are telling you not to
worry about it I'm curious why you're being persistent. It works for us, you don't like it then don't go there... there are dozens of other boards
for you to browse. The site administration has put it there, you've raised your concerns and have been told by numerous posters they do not share
your sentiment. Your initial approach was abrasive, as were those of the people who supported your idea. Unnecessarily abrasive. Of course we're
going to nitpick your words, we're writers... words are what we do
ATS is for the people, as the site's admin has made clear on multiple occasions. The Coll. Writing section is the writer's domain and we all like it
where it is, the admins can move it if they see fit but I don't think moving one forum board is going to reshape the means of communicating over long
