Hello everybody,

As some of you may have noticed there has been a small change in the ranking of the group.
:iconforgotten-reaper: has resigned from his function as founder, for personal reasons that I will not speak about because of privacy, and has made me the new founder.
I will try to do my best as new founder.

So let's get down to business, I have seen that most people have become inactive in the group so I want to try to fix that first of all.

So first of all I want to ask you what you personally would want to do in the group.

In case of a contest we would first need to have some judges so for that I call on the contributors and the co-founders to help if there would be a contest.

Somebody has mentioned the idea of a secret Santa. We can easily do something like that, but we would need at least a certain amount of participants.

If you have an idea for something we can do in the group, then by all means leave a comment.

If you have a group that is focused on writing (be it poetry or prose) then you can send us an affiliation request.


Sincerely,
Koratoshisfriend

Didn't bother with the comment thread, my attention span is currently almost zero.

anyway, I'm kinda inactive due to hiatus mode and trying not to burn out :D

well activity wise

it doesn't need to be a contest, but just themes and stuff

like a challenge of sorts. I mean like give a theme, or ask our good writers to stop breathing while writing

On second thought, I'll try not breathing while writing (why say that when I could have said holding my breathe is beyond me)

anyway I guess those are my thoughts in this

PS.

I'm high on coffee so I'm like this, but I'm still coherent I suppose

It's okay that you then took the time to at least reply,
your idea might not be the best (we don't want anybody fainting now would we xD) but it's true that we can do something like a challenge, we can perhaps set up a secret santa event off some sorts, I look forward to hearing from you when you're back from the hiatus

Hello, about that piece you asked me to remove from the gallery, I hadn't seen it yet but I just took a look and already removed it, so disregard my last comment about it (I couldn't find the other one since I already answered so I used this one instead)

it would be a good idea, if you ask members to give you ideas for contest and then let them vote on the ideas, that shows they want to do it.

Yes, so that's why I ask if anybody has any ideas of what to do, but then we would still need to arrange some things to make sure we can actually hold the contest. It wouldn't be fun if we couldn't hold the contest because we can't find judges or something.

use your staff as judges, they are there to help the group. and do a trail contest, if no one entries in a few days call if off and try again, but if you do what i said, you will see who wants to enter the contest, by them giving you ideas, I do this time to time and it works.

Yes but then there is still a problem, I have met some of the staff but not all, so I first would like to talk to them before tasking them with some stuff.
But you must also keep in mind that not all judges have the time to do judging, besides we also need to make sure that we know how they judge something.
Because some people are a little too soft when it comes to grading things (I know from experience) but some are a little too hard.
So basically we need to make a list for contests that shows what we grade, how we grade those parts and how much they count overall (some people add more value to the structure of a poem while other add more value to the meaning, so we need to make sure this is graded fairly).

I have did this so many times in my group, you should know who all the staff members, if not get to know them, and if they don't want to do it oh well, you can ask before you have the contest, if all else fails you can judge them. I know what I'm saying, because I have been there and I want to help you, and I love working with negative people

I know, I believe I did mention to you that I wanted to meet the other staff first of all.
And well I want at least 3 judges, because if only one person would judge it I think it would be not that fair of a contest.

yes i did read that, I meant only one if it was a last resort and you will have to deal with those cases being a founder of a group.

Yes I know, but I myself am quite occupied at the moment to be honest and I do need to await responses from both the members of the group to see if they want a contest, and of the other staff to get to talk to them.
