I've been talking with some of the more writing-inclined members of the flag recently, and we were thinking it would be neat to have a Writer's Cafe section in the forums.  Individual threads in the Mad Titan can get buried too easily, but perhaps a child board would work if a completely separate board is considered unwarranted.  In either case, I would be interested in being an Administrator for said board.

That's not a bad idea, how much interest do you think there is?

Honestly, I think until it's clear that there are enough threads for a separate section, you should just use the Mad Titan. I understand your point about threads sinking and whatever, but there's nothing to stop you from bumping those threads, or creating some sort of index for them. I can only think of... 2? maybe 3? writing-related threads from the entire time I've been in the flag, to be honest.

What if you made it a creative expression board, not just writer's?

I don't write, but I am a crafty ho. I'd be happy to share if I thought people were interested.  I just don't think that there are that many people who are interested in me waxing ecstatically over wool, and other fibers.


Maybe if it were just for creative expression in general instead of writing specific there would be more interest?

I would be totally down for this. I write occassionally and would love to be able to post things and read other's works. If it were more of a broad artistic board, that would be even more fun :) I think more people than we realize are artistic in some way or another, and maybe they just didn't feel comfortable posting it in the more general areas..it would be less like bragging if we had a creative-specific area to post ;)

I don't see why using the Mad Titan is a bad idea, but I'm just crazy so who knows. *shrugs*
