Changing Story Page View to Author View and a Note on RecsI'm sure that everyone has noticed that various authors are moving their entire collected works over from other boards.
This means that often, I can go through several pages of the most recent postings in one fandom, and just see the work of only a few writers.
It would be useful if instead of just seeing the last 15 or so stories posted, we could see the last 15 authors to post. This would give a better idea of who's writing in the fandom, and allow readers to sample the work of several writers more quickly.
One addition to this idea would be REALLY TERRIFIC. Get the author view up, then hit just one button and have all their recommended reading lists pop up, defaulted to those authors who've bothered to enter recs in them. Everyone with an account can rate a story, but not everyone with an account is a author, and writers are a more picky audience than the subset of account holders. There are times when I'd like to have some good reading in a fandom, but I don't have time or the patience to do all that clicking involved to find those lists. If these lists could be filtered somehow by specific fandoms, that too, would be useful. There are tons of recs lists at FF.net, but it's tough to search more than a few of them for stories in just one fandom.
