Hi, Jester... well, on to your questions, hm?
1. I'd add: Characters you play to the searchable part of the O&Os. Like Veks said, if more people fill this in, then it will make writing the partner search engine worthwhile, plus it's quite prominent at the top of the page. You have there O&Os in a female form, but none in male for and other form. It's okay not to have other preferences in the other forms, but to me without saying as much makes an "incomplete" impression. Maybe add what you expect of your writing partner, post length and frequency, what you offer in return.
2. Removed? Not really. Just maybe organized a little, add a bit more description here and there, use bold
, perhaps lists or perhaps tables, just give the page a bit of a structure and add descriptions, point out specific interests. Like, a SciFi setting is an on, any specific? I know that it's in the column on the right, but I swear if I had to read that particular column from top to the bottom, my head would hurt like hell. It's okay if I look for something specific, but if I had to read it entirely... uf.
The less words, the less information I get about a partner, the less inclined I am to approach him/her. Maybe it's just me, but for some reason a mere list of ons and offs really turns me off, like... as if that person didn't care what kind of first impression they make. Yeah, well, that's just me, I would hate to impose me on you.
3. answered in 2, kinda.
4. Frankly (and that's not just you, Jester), if from your O&Os and a thorough check of your past (game) posts I get the impression that the two of us wouldn't mix well, then nothing
would make me write with you. It's just that. People click and people don't. That's why we have those pages, I think.
Hope I make sense.
