Do we really need to have it moderated before messages go up? Forest is about free expression?..

No, it's not supposed to be like that. Possibly the settings need to be put back the way they were before I upgraded the software. I'll check...

Okay, it's currently set up so that when a user posts a comment for the first time, it has to be approved by site admin. Once you have had one approved, you can comment freely.

This is to help prevent comment spam, a major problem in the blogosphere.

I think, what we should do is challenge forest writers by giving them a topic, and a week, and seeing what they can come up with. responses to be posted on the blog.

oui?

PostPosted: Wed May 11, 2005 3:48 am 
Challenge accepted. Reckon Bryan will be on for it too. Reckon a poster in the workshop area would help get interest too. Think I might put something up. I like the idea of a theme we all have in common, but here are some other writing ideas for now:

Writing beginning:

" I/We love.... "
" Forest is..."
" How Random?..."
" They used to say the sun shone out of his arse.
But he didn't mind..."
" Dave was a total knob-end that everybody liked..."

writing on the theme:

" The mirror of infinite nakedness "
" Loitering "
" Being " or " What is Being? "
" Wasted! "
" Getting Fucked! "

If we go for naughty stuff, we will have to password protect it.

Yo,

I'm vageuely interested in the weekly writing thing, but I'd prefer if it was more like monthly or something. I'm totally useless at doing weekly things. Never works!

Btw, my Ten Commandments thing on the blog is not an attempt to make the rules -- it's to do with a new writing project, originated by the man Ras. Check him for more details.....

kisses,
Neil
