Subreddit for webfiction

Looks like one of the Goodreads folks has started a subreddit for webfic.

    Well, looks like that gives Reddit another opportunity to hate me! :-)

    (Reddit has historically not been kind to my webcomic. I get some of my best quotes from them.)

    OK, I'm confused. I noticed in your Tales of the Big Bad Wolf post you essentially have three things:

    A title
    A URL to the site
    A description of the webfic

    But on the Reddit form, I only see:

    A title
    A URL to the site
    A field to determine which subreddit it goes into
    A captcha

    ... how did you add the description?

    EDITED: Ohhhh... I see now. The other tab!

    Posted one for Legion of Nothing. It'll be interesting to see where this goes.

    Did you submit one, Jim? I don't see it. Might have been caught by the spam filter.

    /Finishes checking Reddit comment history for anything incriminating/embarrassing.

    I posted one as well. It didn't show up. Probably because my account only has one other post to it. Or something.

    Hm. I'm feeling pretty thick right now. How did you get yours to show up?

    AKK did it as a link post rather than a self post, so there's no description and clicking the link refers straight to her blog.

    My suspicion is that you guys posted self posts with links (as I did) in the description, but since you don't have a (strong?) post history, it got labeled as spam. I sent a message to the guy that created/moderates /r/webfiction to see if he could check the spam folder and let the messages through.

    But I filled in the captcha! That means I'm ok, right? :)

    That makes sense.

    Wildbow: So far I can see it under new but not anywhere else.

    Gah, I can tell I'm getting old. Trying to understand Reddit makes my head hurt. I'm going to wander away now and mutter about those damn kids. :D

    I don't see LoN's post. It might be spamfoldered and viewable only to you?

    Wildbow: Easily possible.
