Would love help on this.

Very disappointed.....
If I can impact one person, just one, with my writing before I die, then I've lived a great life

I haven't been here that long, so I voted "Disappointed". I really enjoy the site, but I don't really know anyone that well.
If I could simply spread my wings and fly from harmful and cruel things, life would be much easier.

Very disappointed. Having YWS down for a week made me realize just how much I need it...

Also Nate, I agree that you should get the poll somewhere busy. Having it in "My YWS" was pretty cool. As is, I didn't even really know there was a poll. I was just clicking on things on the front page from the staff picks.

I would laugh and jump and cry out of pure happiness.

Not really. Like, OMG.

No YWS? Funny. So funny that I'm laughing on the inside.

If Yewis died?

Well, that would be a laptop wasted.

I would curl up in a fetal position and bawl my eyes out.
I love YWS. I love the people, I love the writing, and I'm even learning to love the new lay-out ('cause you know I hate change :P ).
Of course I'd die. YWS makes up, like, 50% of my life (the other 50% is composed of sleep and eating).

And seriously. Who clicked on happy? I hope that was just a mouse malfunction. >.>

Hehe, Pen. xD My new mantra:


Eat. Sleep. YWS.


It's disturbingly accurate. O_o
"Let's eat, Grandma!" as opposed to "Let's eat Grandma!": punctuation saves lives.

I don't know how I went through life before I found YWS. During the week it was down, I think I was suffering from withdrawl. I have no social life whatsoever. YWS IS my life. If it died, It would be like a piece of my soul shriveled up.

On the other hand, my siblings would be very happy because they might actually get the computer for once :)
Don't follow in my footsteps. I run into walls.

Sometimes, it's best not to question your friends. Just help them dump the body into the river.

Even if the voices aren't real, they have pretty good ideas.

Writing isn't an excuse for insanity. It's a reason.

I'd gain 10 pounds from eating too much ice-cream, and lose all my water-weight from balling my eyes out.

Overall I'd be really disapointed. There is a part of me that would feel like I had more time and that an obligation had been lifted but that suggests fault in myself and my conduct around the site rather than in YWS. I love it here and I'd come online and find myself typing in the address and then recall that it isn't there any more and be sad for the rest of the day. I know that for certain because I've felt the same way about other sites though to a lesser degree. I think I'd even miss it more than I do TYWC so you've done something very right Nate.

Aaaaand enough of the serious answer. I would die, like right now XD
Go Gargoyles!

New to the site? Then check out The Buddy System!
