    Umm...format change?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Charisma, Aug 21, 2007.

    Have you moved the Writing Problems section above and moved the Community Interaction one down? It's actually quite inconvenient, in my opinion. No offense.
    EDIT: As in, the community Interaction Section is more relative to that position and frequently used by many of us.

    If you're just going to be in the Lounge, click the name of it (white link) and it will send you to only that area.

    I know that :) I'm saying otherwise the arrangement is a little inconvenient. Or maybe I'm just being Miss. Extra Perfect.

    It's not really inconvenient because the site is supposed to be focused around actually writing stories and such.

    As adam mentioned, the idea is to get the discussion more writing-oriented.

    Yeah, it seems really odd but with all the mega posting in the lounge, it was like we all were on holidays or something! but I think we seem to be getting back on track though.

    i see what Anthraxx means though. i mean, the only thing i would suggest is having the new member introductions towards the top so that they can see it sorta first

    Such as making New Member Introductions a part of Site Information?

    I'd agree with that suggestion, to be honest.

    Yeah, that actually sounds like a good idea. You have to scroll all the way down to see the New Members bit otherwise...

    In that case shouldn't the 'The Review Room' be at the top

    No, this has been discussed. We don't want to drop newcomers in the deep end with full scale reviewing work. It might just serve to scare them away. Personally, I'm of the opinion that the Review Room should be moved to above the Community stuff, but it's up to Daniel really.

    Yes, that's exactly why I think at least that bit should be up. I agree with the suggestion for moving the newbie part above.

    The Review Room looks neat and perfect down there. I wouldn't want to change it's outlook.

    Possibly. But I think the Review Room is decently active. I'd like to see more activity in the writing discussion forum is what I mean, really.

    Yeah that is a far better idea. I do like how the forum has changed though and noticed that area tends to be more active now as well!
