I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:36 AM)

So a concerned friend of mine is worried that our projects aren't getting noticed enough.  And I agree, the Fan Fictions are probably our lowest traffic sections on the forums.  

As the Fan Fiction Coalition is considered a "FUS Group Project" and not just a creative corner project, I'm gonna steal the reigns from 'Stranger for a bit and modify the rules to help your Fan Fiction Stay a float.  

 

NEW RULES:

  • Group Skype Meetings - Tons of us aren't even aware these are happening (I'm not).  While Private Skype Texts/Chats/Calls can continue as is, large group meetings should be planned out ahead of time and posted here.  If you need help setting up a meeting, contact RedStranger or me.  If needed we can also hook you up with a chat room meeting.
  • Don't forget FUS - Try to keep something of your story on FUS even if you host it on Deviant Art or FanFiction.net.  A link or and update schedule or something.  If you're not updating here FUSers won't notice your story updating at all.  I have no idea who is on what chapter or what project anymore because those posts aren't here on FUS.  Keep the rest of the Coalition in the loop by posting here.  Even if it is just in this thread.  
  • Forum Based Stories - If FUS is hosting your story, make sure there's an out of story thread to also post in.  Many FUSers don't like posting directly in the middle of someone's chapter.  Create a secondary topic for updates.  Also try finding a secondary host like DeviantArt.  It helps spread the Fan Fiction.
  • Scheduled Updates - While you can't rush art, and life schedules get in the way, a large part of the Fan Fictions not being noticed is because they haven't Updated recently.  Most FUSers don't like posting in topics over a month old with no updates.  Your individual topics should be updated at least weekly or biweekly.  Even if you don't have a new chapter, post a status update too keep people in the loop.  
  • Post in Other Writer's Topics - We have a nasty habit of posting in our own topic but never looking at someone else's (or at least not commentating so nobody notices).  If you want to be noticed, you need to help others get noticed.  They in turn should return the favor.  This here is also what the whole Coalition is about, helping everyone's topics/stories get noticed (that and improving them when we can).  Make suggestions, ask questions, or just comment on if you liked the current chapter.  The more replies, the more people notice the topic.  

And most importantly, have fun with it.  Remember this isn't a job, this is a group of pals writing for the fun of it.  If you don't enjoy your work, your doing it for the wrong reasons.  

 

Thanks for your time.
