    Suggestion Workshop accessible to members only?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Chinspinner, Nov 12, 2015.

    Ignore this: the workshop IS member's only. (Given that I was not alone in this misunderstanding, perhaps it could be displayed more prominently.)

    I just think this would be a good idea. As things stand I am only ever inclined to post those frivolous pieces I have little attachment to.

    I agree.

    When I was looking for short-story magazines to submit to, many of them specified that member-only forums were okay to post work in and for it to still be considered unpublished, whereas if it was available for anyone, like here, it couldn't be submitted.

    I agree with this too.

    If there was a members only workshop, I would use it much more than the current workshop. And this would mean that I would critique there more often as well.

    I've recently joined a members-only critique circle for this reason.

    I thought that was already the case?

    Yep, just tested it by Googling a random workshop paragraph inside quotes and there were no hits.

    I'll third that. It would be a wonderful feature. I also don't see a particular reason why it should be accessible to non-members - after all, it is the place where works in the making are supposed to be critiqued, rather than being finished pieces.

    You are correct, I just never went deep enough into the thread to find out- you have to click on the individual post before you are blocked. Well, that was a fun little excursion.

    I was talking about contests but missed the glaring 'workshop' in the thread title :confused:
