Not exactly sure where I want to go with this. But it seems I should be able to make a friendly comment about a story without being subjected to the "Attack of the Writer Tomatoes."
All I ever see in the story forums are the same dozen or so writers that dominate every thread. So I'm not even sure there is an audience.
Since writers all have those big green markers and readers don't it would seem a simple thing to try out.
How about it, Lazeez? Think it might generate some more contact, more interest?
It might even give some more neutral criticism to these prickly writers who badly need it. But that's just my opinion.
Sounds like a can't lose proposition to me. You demonstrate that the readers are also a part of the site. An important part since we pay the dues. I understand that writers get automatic premier membership while we readers have to pony up bucks for that.
Our own forum seems like a very small thing to me.
