Hm, I wouldn't complain if people were a little harsher in their crits (give everything you disliked, along with everything you liked).

I know there was somehting else I wanted to say... but I've forgotten it right now ;). I'll tel yuo if I remember it.
I wrote the above just for you.

Okay, now that I'm slightly off my happy high, I've voted and will answer seriously.

I picked "certain members" but it's not really a big deal. I agree with Gal about "infantile bickering". I hate fighting, especially when it's for not even for a good reason, and I've avoided the YWS before because I didn't want to be around it.

Other than that, I think it's a great site.

It seems after my first works.... which were terrible, people see my name and then run away.
But that's just me....

If you added a 'help' forum thing, then YWS will be practically perfect! (The rest of the perfectness is up to the members Wink) It always bothers me when I can't ask for help on either a name for a charater or something about a plot.

Unless there is a board you can?

Maybe if you made the number of points we can get per post higher? Especially on reviews and stuff...'cause some of 'em really should get like 300 points. (same rate, just a greater range)

I third the more official contests idea. That would be awesome.

I voted Certain Members but they're more annoying than anything. So it's really minor in my opinion.

Overall, I think it's a great site.

The only thing I don't like about it?

Not being able to get on it when my computer is down... which is all the time.
