Hey guys! So I have this idea, sort of like a interactive story. Anyways, my idea is that every week I am going to post a part of a new story that I am working on. (It's a post apocalyptic/zombie story)

The twist is after a couple of weeks of character and plot development I am going to post a poll where people can vote for who they want to survive the next chapter! Among other voting ideas that I have for they story. So, in summary, I post poll of characters, people can vote for who they would like to live and when I post the next chapter the person with lowest number of votes dies.

My question to you guys are: Would you be interested in participating/voting for something like this. Second, I was going to post this on my website to try and get some traffic headed that way. Is there a forum where I can do this on YWS instead? I'll probably still have the voting on my site but I'll post the story here with a link to the voting..

What ya think?

I know there are storyboards where a group of people collaborate, but I'm not sure about the poll thing. Wait for a mod to comment, they should know.

You don't need a special forum to do this. Below the box where you type in your story there is something that says Attachments and Polls, if I remember correctly. You can make the poll there and hope that your reviews will vote. I definitely would :)

I'm trying to figure out if Nate can implement hidden results in the polls. That way nobody knows the results.

Also, the idea that I have is a zombie apocalypse story. Would that be to gruesome or absurd to gain popularity on the site? What do you think?
