Finally got around to registering here. I didn't post a lot over at the other place, but I plan to get more involved now. Good to see all the familiar faces whose posts I learned so much from over there.

  Ooh, I love the wild wild westness going on over here. Posters locking and deleting their own threads? Amazing! I wish proboards had those options. I've seem forums where they have member moderators and each member is a moderator and trustee of the board. Like everyone owns the space equally and are equally responsible for protecting their home.  :clap: :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em :goodpost: :catrun

Unfortunately, one aw sh*t cancels out ten attaboys, and it only takes one a-hole author to attack a clueless reader for all the readers to conclude the environment is hostile.

There hasn't been anything to fight about lately and therefore this place has been pretty quiet.

Them's fightin' words!

"Ah. But the reason so few interact with WC there is they were hounded out by authors who didn't want readers participating in the author area. For readers, WC is now considered a hostile environment for them. And has been for quite some time."

this is what i read, but I saw no signs of it myself. perhaps it was exaggerated?

They don't seem to want to hang out where writers are, or to read about our issues (as evidenced by the paucity of them participating on TOP

TOP = The Other Place.

Ah. But the reason so few interact with WC there is they were hounded out by authors who didn't want readers participating in the author area. For readers, WC is now considered a hostile environment for them. And has been for quite some time.

Its not they don't want to hang out with authors, but a group of authors convinced them not to. I don't know who the authors were though, but it wont be happening here if anyone tries.
