Not sure if any of you even take notice of some helpful quotes/article links I post on here to help us all become better writers, but until Joakim tells me that he would prefer that I stop, I will continue to post, so that 'maybe' some of you will get some helpful tips.

I send several challenges a day (to different people, sometimes more than one challenge to the same person). Unless someone accepts and I receive their email, I have no way of knowing who I have sent one to, and who I haven't. Is there some way that we can keep a record or see who we have sent a challenge to, the story, the date, and the person we've sent it to? We now have an 'accept challenge' button. Maybe we can somehow have a 'decline' button??

I think it would be neat, perhaps beneficial, if we had a 'specific' place/forum (?) for us to vent. It would only pertain to Story War issues, nothing else. It could also be a place for us to get to know one another, which since we can't add a small BIO on our profile page, would definitely be used by all.

Hi Joakim: I realize that you have a million things going on in your life, but have a quick question: How soon can we start to edit our own stories? Someone submitted their draft for Chapter 8 of my 'Word Salad' story, but definitely did not follow instructions. Instructions were to submit a SENTENCE. This person submitted several PARAGRAPHS instead. It won't be fair if this person's draft got into my story, and didn't follow the instructions of the originator of the story.


Thanks.

I know that this was answered somewhere, but I keep getting a message telling me that I've reached my quota for challenging others. I don't think the 'count' or whatever is working because I know I haven't sent (40?) in the last 24 hrs and when does the 24 hrs end?


Thank you.

This morning I added a new story 'Word Association'. Prior to that, my Points Per Story score was 10.40. Now after submitting the story, it's down to 8.67. How is the points per story calculated?


Thanks :)

I have given feedback to exactly 84 times so far with a 72% (?). How is this percentage calculated? I recently saw on another person's profile: this person gave feedback 2 times with a 100% reading. How is this possible that I can spend my time and give feedback 84 times, but only receive a 72%??


Thanks

When you receive feedback you can rate it as helpful. That means that 72 % of your feedback has been rated as helpful.


Might need to look over the whole feedback part though

There are many stories that start out with a 'bang' (get participation and votes), then after a while they fade into the sunset. Is there a way to have a separate section (maybe somewhere where all of the stories are listed i.e. Editor's choice/Subscribed Stories.....)


Many, if not all, of these stories are well written and it's sad to see our time that many of us have spent on them, to be not worth anything.


Thanks

Question: Many times lately, when I'm sent a challenge on any particular story, I don't necessarily want to duel, but still want to submit my draft to that same story. But I imagine that by me submitting to the story, that this is basically my acceptance to the challenge. Is this correct, and if so, is there a remedy for correcting this?


Thanks :)
