Low Post Counts - Please Read

Low Post Counts - Please Read

The Fan Fiction / Writing Board is in dire need of help. As you probably know, has established a rule about active boards: an active board is one that gets at least 15 posts per day. Unfortunately, Fan Fiction / Writing has not met this minimum last month:

Fan Fiction/Writing (300 | 9.68)

Furthermore, the posts have gotten less and less even over the past few days.

If you as posters want to keep the board, we need to change something. We need to post more, of course, but maybe we can also all help make this place more alive.
Any ideas, suggestions, help is welcome!
If we don't meet the minimum again next month, Fan Fiction / Writing will be closed.

Thank-you, Lynn and Jennifer

ooh, that sucks!
now we can't let that happen, can we?

maybe some re-organizing? some people who each are responsible for a certain fiction section? (a movie, a book, a person,...) they can search for fiction of their 'subject'? & promote it?

I just saw a post on LJ about you guys and low post counts.

Didn't know there was a writing board here. So I'm checking you guys out.

If I think of suggestions after looking around I'll let you know

Well I found the NaNo thread, which is what I mainly was going to suggest. I was also going to say do we have threads for other writing challenges, which might be hard since we can't link to other message boards as most of the other challenges are on forums.

I saw a three prompt thread, but do we have something the NaNo board's Dare's threads? There we could leave dares and take dares and then maybe share how we could incorporate it into a story or make a fic (say a completely AU fic of a show) based on the dare?

We do have a Writing Prompts Thread here, which is probably what you meant.

Jordyn it's all right

Why not campaign to be part of the Fan Art Board?
Fan Creations as a whole...
I always feel as though the writers here get the short end of the stick.

If they can combine the Computer/Newbie forums into the Intro board, why not combine Fan Art and Writing.

I'll send your suggestion to Jerry and we'll see what they say

Hopefully they listen with an open mind.

I think that sounds like a great idea. I hope they go for it.

I have forwarded it to Jerry and him and the Management Team are currently discussing the idea.
