Readers and Contributors to the Writers Workshop,

I have gathered you together for this town hall meeting to discuss what could or should be done to improve this part of the forum. Now I know many of you are say to yourselves, “Tam how can we improve on your perfection?” or “Tam, all we want is for you to write more” or “Soon Tam, Soon” To the latter I say please stop following me.

To the rest please put your hero worship aside for a moment and let me know what would make the forum more enjoyable for you? I have a whole list of rules that I am not enforcing right now, the biggest of which is the time limit for posters. Do you want more strict enforcement of the rules? Different Rules?

No to pick on a recent contribution, but should we allow links to outside pages if the writer hasn’t put their work on our board? Let me know what you think. The floor is yours.

I think the post limit for users is a good idea. It stops people from joining abusing the board and leaving but maybe drop from 50 to 20... 50 is alot

as for links to outside maybe allow them if the poster has put a sample on the board..... Like give a sample paragraph or two then a link to the rest of the work so u can keep reading if u want to

What? I wasn't following you? *camera in hat focuses*

I don't really like outside links myself, and I do think post limits are a good idea. I really want to read and critique most of these stories, but sometimes they're just a big block of text that's rather hard to sort through. Also, I wouldn't mind if posters would give a little more backstory to their work, but that's just a preference. You couldn't really enforce that as a rule. Unless....*imagines security hippo*

Now if you'll exscuse me, I've got some stalking to do.
