Falen, I'm so happy you decided to join! I felt lonely, being the only YA Fantasy representative. The YA Fantasy folder is waiting for you.

This is the coolest group ever. Hands down. I'll be reading more tonight and adding crits to folders. I LOVE fantasy : )

Yay! I'm still technically on vacay for the rest of the week and weekend, so I probably won't poke around too much until next week, but I definitely will!

two of the writers don't seem to be taking my advice at all. Then they want to share revisions that haven't fixed the huge problems I've pointed out.

That's their prerogative as authors. Just like no one in that group can compel you to change yours.

River, I feel your pain because there were times I felt the same - but I still don't think you should take it personally. This website is like a tide, up and down, depending on a season, holidays, day of the week and the moon phase. Two days are not the best indicator. I personally barely have time to browse the site right now - but I was very active some time ago and I'm sure I'll be in the future. No one threw a stone into me when I left suddenly - and no one rejected me when I was back. I am not trying to influence your decision to leave but I will be very happy if you decide to come back.
