If you have any questions about this section that haven't been answered in the Before You Post thread, then go ahead and ask them here!

Just so you know, there are several of these in Randomness that you might want to move. (You said you moved the ones from the Lounge.)

Awesome idea! It's very helpful.

Are we allowed to bump a thread if we've made a post offering to critique but no one's responded?

I made a post, but no one's responded and I was hoping to get more points by offering to critique and stuff, so...yeah.

I would ask you for one, but you said you don't do modern fiction...

Maybe change that? Since a lot of stories on here are modern. *Shrug*

Go for it! IMO, it isn't the same thing as bumping a literary thread so... Yes! Do it. Bring in those awesome critiques!

Okay, good. I almost did it without asking but didn't want to be told it wasn't allowed and have the thread locked, so...yeah.

Pah! I wouldn't lock your thread. ^^ Thank you for asking though! It was a good question, and I am sure others will find it of use.

My thread died and I tried to get people to post again, but they didn't. My question is, can I make a new thread? It wouldn't be for anything, just lyrics, as people don't tend to critique them but the lyric's section seems to have become a lot more popular.
*Don't expect to see me around much in the next couple of weeks. School has started again, and it'll be a couple of weeks before I've settled in. If you've asked me for a critique, you will get it, but not for a little while. Sorry*

I don't really understand your question but sure! I think I get it. Go for it. ^^

Can you ask multiple reviewers at once to critique your story? I just did this with four or five people, and I'm afraid I might get in trouble.. I'm paranoid..

What Snoink said.

I do this all the time, as does eveyone else. You can't completely edit something based on one person's opinions. They can miss things, or only critique one aspect of the story. Besides, some may have forgotten about their thread and not critique.
