When I first came on here, I thought this site stunk. I didn't get very helpful feedback for any of my stuff, and I just didn't like the general atmosphere. On other reviews as well as the ones I got, people were flaming left right and center.

But now that I've had a proper butcher's round here, I've warmed considerabley to this site, and spend like a third of my computer time on here! Sure, there are some idiots on here, but there's a whole barrowful of good eggs on here as well. So, I think it's the people on here that make the site so great. And the mods and admins and all. *waves arms expansively* It's People!

The people, the wonderful imaginative caring people. People that aren't perfect. People that need help and people that need to help. It's a great community that seems to hold its own against the jerks of today that end up ruining everything else. I like the fact that I can help other people without having to write myself too. I like that I can do what I prefer (the critiquing side) and please other people. It's the people.

I Love the writing and the communtiy.

I liek the fact that i am able to read writing by some of the best writers i have ever seen(read actually). And i fell fuzzy in side when i think i get to read thois before any publisheer of member of the public do. :D

And i especially love how nice some of the people are even when they are ripping your story from piece to piece. :D

(dont liek the people who say it stunk but dont give any help to make it better :x )

I'll quote Jules, the part about especially loving it when people rip your story apart, but are really nice while doing so XD

Seriously, though, I love the crits I get on YWS.

... And what is that last option in the poll doing up there? Grrr...

I never believed that I could make such great friends over the internet until I found this site. At first I was so worried that I wouldn't fit in, but after a few weeks I started talking to people and found that I had more in common with them than just writing.

I love this place. I'm on all the time.

Ari just took the words right out of my mouth. I love this site, and I definitely voted for community. I wish one of the options would have been everything, though, because I do love everything about it!

I would have chosen the community, also, but, alas, I had only one choice. I love to read others works and talk to them about ideas and other subjects, to further expand my writing curriculum. Yws also gives me a chance to meet friends who are interested in writing and reading, like myself.

Can't pick just one.
Love is the answer to life yet the slowest form of suicide.
Love is a paradox.
And that's why we love it.

The writings, but the community would be my second choice. :)
