Is there anything that bugs you about the forums?

Please comment and explain here.

Not much.

There are always those chosen few that bug you a lot...and you could always use more critiques...but I honestly can't complain.

I HATE the fact that it wont let me edit my blog...I find that ****ing irritating! But apart from that this place is sound. Although...more critiques wouldnt go amiss y'know.
Thank you lovelies!

Ditto what they said.
~The bandit’s body slumped to the ground, knees hitting first,followed by the rest.His dead weight pushed dust into the air in a swirling cloud.The blood flowed from his head,splicing like river canals,delaying slightly on pebbles before flowing on through the street.~

Pretty much what Sam said. There will always be those select people I (or anyone) don't get along with.

Hon, why are you hidden? Its not like you... Yea me too, some people are just the negative of your energy. But you'll find that anywhere. So this case is not a matter of what you don't like in YWS, but what you don't like in the W.O.R.L.D. *wink* Sorry...

Nate, you will eventually resine or trade powers with me:

As was said, there are those who we won't like, or won't like us. There isn't much that can be done about that. And yes, more crit, and things to crit would be nice. Sometimes it seems like we've forgotten that this is a site for writers, not just for chatting.
Please, sit down before you fall down.

The infantile bickering and whining. I know I have been a part too...but I try to avoid it... I deal with it enough at the daycare I work at. It makes me sick to see it here.
Sing lustily and with a good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength.

Crits (though people try, which is already nice enough) and debate.
You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, instead, you should read every single book to see what every book is about before you even come close to judging its viability.

Makes you wonder if we ever grow up.

I can't complain too much. I think that more people should try to break the monopoly that Qi and Incandescence seem to have in the debate forum, but other than that.

Ahaha, the 'Nate being away' option made me laugh.
I have no complaints. I feel that the literary forum moves at a decent pace, and yes, critiques are scarce at times, but what can you do? I like the chatting in the Lounge forum. It lets the people on the forum get to know eachother--and this forum, though primarily for writing, should also be for making friends and such. So. No complaints there.
i thought you were shallow, but then i fell in deep.

If you added a 'help' forum thing, then YWS will be practically perfect! (The rest of the perfectness is up to the members ;)) 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?

I would rather die of passion than of boredom.
