In the dark.

I personally find people who don't have many people who recommend
their writing or at least comment about it, feel that people don't really notice their writing. I personally wish people would comment on new member's writing so we a can all encourage people. Hence, that is why this site was created.

I agree an sumone long ago mentioned it. I read it on a discussion.it was was a long discussion about the topic.but that member isn't on this website .I clicked on it an nothing came out but it was a great point. Everyone is just caught up with people (writers they know)or friends.an they neglect newbies or people who don't have many writings or recommendations. Me- I personally don't care about all that but I think some peoples feelings might get hurt or they will stop writing because they might think their writings aren't good enough .
I like reading everyones writings.everyone has lots to share but who is willing to read. Change is a great key!.
Thanks Kaitlyne. Darn I have trouble writing your name. But I wrote it correct.
*I believe we didn't have to brought it up..I don't like when a person has to be told about wats going on. Cause then it doesn't come out naturally meaning theyl start doing it all cause of what we said on here..which is just sad. Cause they should notice it on their own. But oh well.
*sorry but I write Critic writings so I might write a lot on one discussion for I have a crazy way of an opinion.

i agree Kaitlyne, it can be hard to be the new person in a strange place, even if one is intimidated by the new place, so it would defin itely be beneficial to help out those new to the sight, and i do understand if some of us here can't always get to all the new people, what with peoples work and/or school schedules and such, but even if some of us took a moment here and there to read some of the newer writers works, maybe the sight itself would grow more, cause those new writers we take time for will tell others they know and bring them here, thus the sight prospers, and so does everyone else

I agree with all said here, and I try to read something from everyone; there are a lot of talented writers.

Personally, my brain is still used to the old format of the site wherein newer writings were seen at the top of a category. I'm not sure if that's still the case because I haven't been on as much as I'd like. It seems nearly every time I do go on, there's a new piece of writing and it all just seems a bit... overwhelming. I'm a slow reader (slight dyslexia) so seeing my "to read" list grow without end is slightly disconcerting. But such as it is. I'll read on.

Whenever I login I tr to read a couple of shorts, and maybe a poem or two since those are the two areas of writing I find I'm best at spotting what's good and the ones that appeal to me personally. I have to agree with Daniel in saying that the old format whereas the newer writing posts were to the top allowed the newbie writers to get much more feedback than the current most popular layout. I miss the old layout, I discovered a lot of good writing back then.

I like the new layout, what I would suggest is when we login that the stories rotate. So different stories are highlighted with each refresh/login. This way we get to see the new stuff often so it has it's chance to shine.

As of now I have no idea when new writers join the site or much less post writings.

*its all about wanting to read
And find em.

Its simple:
(New writers) - you CLICK a top- "WRITERS"- on the page it will show you from top (new members, from ones that just join in to the last)

(New writings)- CLICK a top - "BROWSE" - on the page it will give you from the newest writings to the last in that order.

Its also about being welcomed not just by a little comment on their profile but having em welcomed to the site an everything it offers but if noone is courtagous they are kept in the dark.
I can see how none of new members are in this conversation-only myself as a newbie.

Anubis, I think what Robert is saying is that in the old format, newcomers were sort of announced and hence their presence becomes more noticeable for us. Many of the members here can only spare 10 or so minutes and most of us would spend that time reading something. Having a newcomer's entry more... easily noticeable would help us be more aware of them and be more anticipative of their future works.

Its ok.
Really just an opinion an noone is force to do something they don't want to do.

*thanks again Kaitlyne for bringing it up again.
I'm new and they told me bout this and will continue no matter what or who reads or who doesn't.

Sorry it has taken me a time to answer, I agree with you all. Basically I wished we had a format where we could see more writing of newer people.

I just joined Scribeslice but haven't posted any of my work yet. I was wondering if new people ever really received attention because on a lot of sites they go unnoticed by most people. I think this is a very true statement and something that should be addressed by a lot of people. I believe that writing communities should be used to encourage people to write, even if they aren't the "greatest."

Welcome to ScribeSlice Kimberly :)

From what I've seen, new people do get comments on their writing, but usually because they have taken the time to comment on someone else's writing as well. "You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" works well here.

I haven't seen any prejudice here in regards to a writers actual ability and most people here are helpful :)

I have found nothing but encouragement, helpful suggestions, and plenty of feedback here. There are lively discussions and a lot of laughter, too. It helps to stay involved as much as time permits. When I began at Scribeslice last October, I was made to feel right at home.
