I need a life. Or a metronome.
(#) KilljoyKid 2012-06-07 09:10:41 AMI like this idea :) I also think that any outstanding Authors Notes asking for advice and such should be taken down, they're old and nothing to do with MCR anymore, but only if the Author's okay and has there advice now.
I also think some of these things telling us how to deal with the trolls should be taken down in a week or two so they're not just clogging up space and spamming the page- not saying anything bad though, they can be useful and contain good ideas!
Another idea is to review EVERY SINGLE piece you read positively and with constructive criticism- no one needs to be told they "suck" or whatever :P
Also we should rate down any of the Troll army's notes so they don't get read, and rate up each other's works :)
Just putting my two cents in :L
(#) XCherrikidXD 2012-06-07 09:27:41 AMTotaly love this idea! I agree with KilljoyKid, any old authors notes should be taken down (with the authors permission of corse) we should rate the trolls little 'updates/spamming' down so no one can read it and rate eachothers work up!
I for one am not gonna stop writing (even though im shit, i love to write!)
'If we stand together we'll be unbroken'~ Black Veil Brides. Don't let the trolls win, ignore them they WILL go away even if it takes days, weeks hell months. They'll get board.

(#) XxLiveyourlifExX 2012-06-07 09:29:30 AMI think this is the only way to deal with the problem. Posting a bunch of not saying how your so mad just feeds into it. Writing no matter what they say doesn't give them any 'victories.' I love this note Bella, but I also agree with Killjoy, after a week or so it should be taken down so our category is what it's supposed to be...stories.
I know I only have one story here, but I've been around FicWad for years and I saw the Fall Out Boy category die, and I would hate to see that happen here too.
Keep writing. The fact that you're brave enough to post your work is an accomplishment in itself.
Author's responseThanks Corri
(#) KilljoyKid 2012-06-07 09:59:12 AMI'm glad people agree with me... But no hard feelings, right Bella_Jinxx? I would hate to think I've annoyed you or hurt your feelings... there's enough of that with Trolly Mctrolololerson aka TiffanyRose going around... so, you don't hate me? Because we need to stand together- a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link and if we have problems then it shall have a weak link... bad analogy stuff going on from me but... gah. I need to die. I just want to know that you don't hate my opinion? Megan :)
Author's responseI do not hate your opinion! It's awesome
(#) bloodbunny15 2012-06-07 10:17:44 AMi agree with all the above
fantastic idea, some great authours have left us, currently working on a panic! at the disco collab with some fantastic authours so when that's up and running and i have some spare time i could post some one-shots or something
we need to bring ficwad back to it's former glory
(#) CosmicZombie 2012-06-07 11:42:50 AMFuck yeah! I'm totally with you; thank you so much for posting this. I posted something similar about it yesterday too; I totally think that writing on regardless and completely ignoring any trolls is the way forward- this is a writing site, so that's how we'll fight. We'll carry on. I'm not willing to let some troll ruin that for us all. I refuse to give in.
Thank you so much for this.
