    I took the liberty of sending you the link on the specified account, Shaeor. I hope that's alright, Chris.

    I'm just popping into this thread to clarify something I noticed on one of the recent listings. Threadbare's listing links to RoyalRoad, but that seems like it conflicts with the note on the submissions page that listings here shouldn't point to large sites with their own extensive communities?

    I started reading them today. Sorry, the project slipped my mind.

    I checked on three of them today. I'll try to get a few every day.

    All three I read haven't been updated in a month, but I'm not sure that means they are abandoned? I haven't updated mine in a couple months, but I plan to get back to it after I finish this novel and send it.

    @Rhodeworks, there are multiple listings on WFG that are linked to RRL, including mine. RRL was way smaller 4 years ago and passed through that rule. There was a thread a couple months ago asking people's opinions on continue to accept them, but I'm not sure if any actual ruling came out of that.

    As far as I can tell, the basic decision is that RRL fics will continue to be fine until they aren't. Optimally, this site does like, twenty new listings a month, and the real fear is getting flooded by authors from sites that do like, a thousand new stories a day. A slow drip gives each writer a better chance to be noticed, and gives the queue checking guys a chance to get through it all. So RoyalRoad is fine, because it isn't flooding WFG... yet. Feel free to let me know if I got any of that wrong, Chris.

    What kind of limits should we be looking for in terms of story quality? I'm mean, there's plenty of poorly written stories out there, but should we list them anyway unless they are really dire?

    Hi Stable,

    In general, I try to imagine a new reader arriving at WFG, skeptical that this online fiction thing can possibly be worth anything. Would I be okay with the story being the first thing they click through on from the WFG home page.

    I try to cut new stories a lot of slack, but if they are anywhere near that borderline, I don't lose sleep about saying no.
