Looking for a good story
« on: November 16, 2012, 12:34:36 PM »
Is there anywhere that people post to indicate a link to a good story they have read? I don't think there is a "like" button but sometimes I think it would be useful.

Dropping the authors a kind-worded PM is probably the most flattering thing you could do. :-)

I think Drax is looking for a thread of recommended stories, possibly in search of something to read?

The problem with that is that people's various ons and offs vary so much that a story one person loves could bore one reader to sleep and send another into traumatic shock.

You might add a section called, I dunno, "Personal Favorites" to your wiki page with links to stories you like. That way people could get an idea what your tastes are like by seeing what of other people's work you enjoy reading.

For your own reading enjoyment you could peruse the various story forums and sort the title column by Replies.  A large number of replies would indicate a story that has been going on for quite some time.  We also have a Completed Tales forum which is a library of stories our writers have taken to conclusion and wish to share with us.  Anyone is welcome to request that their completed (not abandoned) story be moved there.

Actually I think it would be nice to have a place for folks to be able to link to their favorite stories on E. 

So I created a thread for such.

I have in the past used the Stalk Bookmark Feature when following a story I have found interesting. I do love that feature, not just for my own story-finding ease, but as stated, for others that I like as well.

Mith, is that thread for sharing completed stories only?

No, it is for both finished and works in progress.

No problem and you're welcome. Might be kind of cool to have a Follow function like on Twitter for stories. I like my bookmarks just for my own RPs.
