I said 'okay'. The only thing keeping this site from going up a rank or two, is the low membership count. Everyone is really slow in posting (I'm use to faster forums).

Also, there should be more emphasive on the writing/reviewing apsects. I've seen few items with more than four replies to them. I think there should be some sort of reward system for reviewing/putting up a story. Maybe let you spend the points you gain on something novel. Mmaybe some sort of addition to your blog, or a special avatar/mark below your name, or perhaps even something more exotic/unique.

But other than that, this is a nicely set out site, with quick loading times and an eyepleasing design :).
I wrote the above just for you.

He already answered that in the New Features thread, EBM. Some ultra-conservative guy.

Its quite good! It's better than any other site, one problem...

Actullay two.

I think you should have a spell check! I can't spell to save my self!

And Also:

Yes, I agree with sureal, some posts don't have many comments, you should get an award or something, I DONT KNOW! But something to make more people comment on other people's work!

I use Microsoft Word to spell check on any long pieces. If it's short (like this), then it's easy to spot most mistakes.

Right now I am working on a feature that will hopefully bring about a huge increase in the number of reviews per story.
