==Writer's Showcase & Writer's Workshop==

I made a couple template pages on my sandbox wiki. I'm sending this message to all the active admins to see how it is received. It is a slight alteration to the {{t|nav-bottom}} template, which I have named <nowiki>{{Nav-display}}</nowiki> with the <nowiki>[[Special:RandomInCategory]]</nowiki> feature. Check it out here. The link is at the bottom of the message. Click either "Writer's Workshop" or "Writer's Showcase", which will take you to one of three test pages I've set up for each side of the template.
  +
  +
This template could be added to the front page if that's what the plan is, or the recent activities page if that is the plan, or both, even.
  +
  +
If implemented, it would also include the user adding either one of the categories to the post they wish to be included in this feature. Stories could be filtered out of either category after a week or two, keeping the categories small, which would raise the chance of each post getting hits. Whatever length of time would work best for each post to stay in the either category, I could take this on myself (or jointly with other users), removing the categories from the posts that have already been featured for a while.
  +
  +
Just to be clear, the categories "Writer's Showcase" and "Writer's Workshop" would need to added (or if other names for the categories are more fitting, I could easily change the template to reflect that). And, lastly, the categories would only be added directly to the posts on the Writer's Showcase or Writer's Workshop, and not the pages themselves (this will keep the feature limited to original stories, and promote activity on these boards.)
  +
  +
Check it out, let me know what you think. Any suggestions/additions to the feature would be appreciated.

Question

Hi, I just saw the youtub stor, and it was a troll. That was very stupid. I know my stories are bad, but not trollish. Anyway, it was deleted rather fast, which leads me to two questions. Do you have bots that automatically delete these kind of things? Also, if I spot one of these and you don't, who should I report them too?--Christopher Michael Richardson (talk) 00:44, June 6, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks.

Thanks Jay. I appreciate that man. Financial troubles. Just landed a job. Been out of work awhile. 3 months behind on the mortgage. Usual family burdens we all face now and then. However, I've been through worse. Ill be ok though. Thanks man! Hearing from you guys means a lot! Blacknumber1 (talk) 15:18, June 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hey Jay ten I saw that it said admin for you at the bottom of the page, and just had a question. I wrote a pasta and was trying to find it and it says it hasn't been published yet. Is there a reason to that or does it just take a certain amount of time to publish a story? Thanks and please respond ASAP, as I'm nervous my story won't make the cut

hi

I am so happy you liked my story The Long List

Yeah, you're getting one, too, buddy. I just wanted to let you know that I have another story nominated for Pasta of The Month: Nightingale.  It is a period piece that takes place in a 1910 whorehouse that I put a lot of research and love into.  If you get a chance check it out.  Thank you so much.  HumboldtLycanthrope (talk) 18:33, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Hi why did you delete my first CP? im just starting so I didn't know anything

I have one question I'd like to ask while being as civil as possible: Why was my story: Statues in the Garden deleted? it took me a couple hours to write/type that, and I just want a reason. I understand that it said 'Quality Standards' but what standard in particular did it break? The whole '***' thing didn't work too well on the Skype call part, but besides that it turned out well. What was wrong?

RE:

I hate to disagree, but doesn't this wiki deal in the bizarre? It's the point. The protagonist's reactions are what I would consider mine to be, minus personal holdbacks such as family, friends, etc. Grammar problems, however, I'm interested in. I'll go through it and see what I find, but I'd like assurance that if I fix what I find, would it be allowed reposting?

-AMarbleHornet

Hey, um I found out you had deleted my creepypasta and I figured I can tell you why it should be undeleted. I read the guidelines, and I saw that my spelling was correct, and well my events were good, so I figured I might be able to get it back up on this Wiki. I'm a huge fan of this Wiki, and it would mean alot. Also, sorry if this is the wrong page to talk about the undeletion. Thanks, Xx_IceeKG_xX.

I know that it wasn't a story but I just want to try to keep it there so I can get inspired when doing the story is it or isn't it ok to do this?

Jay, I have a story in ww and all it needs is a grammar check. I have grammarly, but it sometimes misses things. I don't have word. Any suggestions.

Problems Uploading

Hi I'm fairly new here and still getting acquainted with the site. I'm trying to upload a story and it says that it may contain a blacklisted subject or be considered spam. I double checked the list of blacklisted subjects and couldn't find anything that might apply. It's currently posted in the writer's workshop as The Coffin Maker. If there's anything I need to change, or if the story needs to be rewritten in general I would appreciate you taking a look at it. Thank you for your time.

To save you having to look through the abuse logs, Jay, it seems to be the word "Sonic", which is in context and doesn't actually refer to the character. I'm pretty sure you're active so I won't try and ninja you. « UnderScorre » 22:37, June 20, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Important Warning

Won't happen again. Thank you for letting me know.

RE:

Excellent thinking!

I'll go delete the part about that in the message I left on Empy's user page. Thank you! --"You know why he's here? Why he's investigating the broken rules? He's not paid or anything. He likes it. He gets off on it" (talk) 16:55, June 23, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much for deleting that page, as it was offending me really badly. (Note: I am not gay, so that's why it offended me)

New Tobit Chapter

Hey Jay,

New Tobit story is out, please check it out, Tobit: Hiya Toby and the Unwashed.

Thanks as always,

DanteDustep (talk) 21:06, June 24, 2015 (UTC) Hello, I've talked to your fellow Admin Empyreallnvective about this and I would like to get your side in on it. Why was my story, "Greetings, Michael" deleted? I read your quality standards and my story had failed to meet none of these quality standards. Along with this, it seems you and Empy deleted it so fast that one can infer that you hadn't even read the tale. Regardless, I would like a reply as soon as possible. With all Respect, Dante.

I'd like to report a user named "1337troll9". He edited my page by placing an absurd meme within the text, simply to be a troll. 

Rules don't say "plagiarism" is not allowed. If you think it is, then go fucking put that into rule section. Thanks.

Roses

According to that page you moved, there's this excerpt from the story which means "Roses" is the plural form of the last name "Rose". Or else it would say "the first of the Roses..."

"There's... there's a tradition in my family. The firstborn is spirited away on their sixteenth birthday by the very first Rose, Emilia..."

It should be moved back to the way I had it.

Hey Jay, I have a question for you. I recently looked at the genre of Demons/Devils, and saw that my story was pictured at the top among 7 others. Same with the Disappearences genre. What does this mean?

Hihihi

Apologies for the inconvenient changes. I'll be careful to avoid them in future.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 'sort template'? As far as I know, I haven't removed anything called a 'sort template'. Could you please explain this to me?

And also, SoPretentious left another editing hint yesterday on my talk page. I appreciate all your help, but I haven't gotten around to asking him about it, but I cannot understand what he is trying to say. Could you look at it and comprehend it for me? Is it something to do with the 'sort template' too? And why is it necessary to open two editing windows - how does that make things easier? What am I doing wrong?

As for editing now, I'll just play it as safe as possible until I understand these things. 

Thanks

Re: editing

Thanks for the tips and explanation. Though, I still don't understand what it means to edit code in a pasta (thus, the thing about two windows, and copying code, etc.).

Does the wiki have a page/blog on these editing tips? I've only found pages with obvious things such as adding pictures and quality standards, the most, switching from visual to source. But these more complicated things I do not get. I would reccommend gathering these code editing things onto one page to make it easier for users who are interested and are willing to take it on.

Writer's Showcase & Writer's Workshop

I made a couple template pages on my sandbox wiki. I'm sending this message to all the active admins to see how it is received.
