The Movement - Movement Signatures - Movement Work - Why I Write


From our boss;

It was once discussed many years ago about moving WritersCo to a more 'user-friendly' environment, however we cast it aside hoping that things would get better on WritersCo. I have been thinking is it the volunteers, the members or WritersCo itself that restrict possibilities. I was silly to think the first two, and tried aimlessly to make things better focusing ideas on those areas. BUT, now I realise, you can't have a sound community unless you have a sound, easily managed and understood community. If I was a new member I would expect to find communication with others much more simple, than compared to Heddate Communication Hell (Although there is a book in there somewhere - Dummies and Smarties guide to using the Heddate Forum System, and liking it)

Other reasons to move -
WritersCo costs a minimal amount of about £20, which I have paid each year since the launch of WC and introduction of the shout-box to run.
yet any ad revenue goes to Hedda to support WC and ther other Hate-it communities. This money should go to us!

I suggest we move!

In fact, I think we should move to encourage new members joining and to give US greater control over OUR community.

However I know we have all put a lot of work ito WritersCo - so we all need to sort out what we want to keep, save things that we don't have anywhere else - delete things we don't want to leave behind etc.

Once everyone has had time to act on this, WC will come down, in its place will be a page holder for the community, but the shoutbox will be there, so we can all communicate.

Any questions email me.

Okay people, this is our shot to make Writersco what it needs to be, I need all of you on this, I want every little critisim, anything you like about other site, give us example, ramblings, ideas, suggestions, hate mail, just give us what you do and don't like about writersco.

The List, shove your thoughts on here, now go! Ash.

Dear reader:

This is [Ash], that's my name as well. I am going to try and get Writersco (WC) back on her feet. If you can't tell she's take a pretty big fall and it's of all of our faults. We were all like yeah WC! than abandonded her for some stupid reason or another.

For one fact, authors are NOT lazy. Have you ever written a novel? I've written four so far (non-published, I have no intrests in that now) and it was hours and hours of work and editing and than thinking of the plot, deciding that isn't good enough for anything makes you rewrite the entire end.... It is not easy. I am far from lazy, I spend most of my day galavanting around trying to get my college career together with FASFA and getting accepted into one of the hardest programs in my state. Well, that's all done with and now I am here to focus on you. I am putting all my normal Neopets energy (they're so cute.... *cuddles*) into making WC work.

I don't want to be alone in this, because I can't do this my self, it's completely impossible, but I can rock the boat. All I am asking is horribly horrible simple and I want you to here me out because this is all you have to do, I swear, and we can work to save writersco. I want you to join the movement and do these simple little things.

A) Log on at least once a week. (not a hard thing)
B) Try to put something up once in a while, like once every two to three month, just something. Poem, short story, a really funny paper you wrote in english class (like I plan on doing soon).
C) Don't think negativly on WC, the more you think bad on it, the more you forget it and don't log in don't respond to that message, things like that.
D) Remember this is a community, we all need to work together to acheive.

If you agree to this please edit this page and sign your name, put 'I support the movement' and a link back here in your house and actually remember A-D, remember them, this will come in handy, this will save WC.

I hate Halo. The videogame. Don't mind angelic halos or solar halos, but Halo is terrible.

2009-06-17 [Kuzco]: \o/  It's my favorite game ever *_*. \o/ My feelings are hurt, I will be at the corner cutting my wrists.

2009-06-17 [Tyr Zalo Hawk]: I'd apolgoize... but I loathe the game with the fiery burning passion of 10000 red hot suns... so... ya...

2009-06-17 [Tyr Zalo Hawk]: Also, this current conversation should be forum material XD

2009-06-18 [Kuzco]: Father?!

2009-06-18 [Evolution X]: I don't like the main plotline very much... and the multiplayer felt samey to me until I worked out how to make it a bit more interesting.

2009-06-26 [Tyr Zalo Hawk]: Thanks, Ev. At least someone's kind around here <.<... *checks cookie for all known poisons for eating it*

Paranoia FTW....
