Topic: Homepage on old site
On the old site we had all the newly posted works in three categories - novel, poem, short story. I can't find that anywhere, but it was useful to see the new material. The new home page just lists a few posts in no particular category, and only about three. How will we discover new writers on the site and try out new stuff? By the same token, I'm worried other won't find my stuff!
The creation of groups is also worrisome. People may wind up only reviewing and being reviewed by people in their group. It will make it very difficult for new members on the site. I am currently reading a romance novel that I love (MsPiddles), but I never would have joined a romance group. I clicked on her or maybe she clicked on me first, but we randomly stumbled on each other. She might not have chosen historical fiction.
Does this make any sense? Don't encourage us to become "clique-ish"! Please at least on the homepage have the same kind of feed as on the old site. That's always where I went to choose something new to read!
