Exclamation Poetry section changed to "Creative Writing" section

To accomodate those Forum members that have a flair for creative writing, the Poetry section in CREATIVE ENDEAVORS has been changed to Creative Writing, and will include Poetry, Short Stories and other forms of Creative Writing

It may be a good idea, when posting in this section, that you start off the subject line with a description of your post, such as:

Short Story: ADD in the Dark

or

Poem: Once Upon a Diagnosis

or

Other: An Open Letter to All Non-Adders

(You get the idea... )

Cool. Now that the change has been made, I guess I'm sort of obligated to post something else, huh?

Andrew: I was at the library when I read that last night and I was TOTALLY HYSTERICAL...(where did the "Dr. and Uranus" thing go, by the way?? That is what had me totally hysterical).

Yes Paul....slightly obligated

I felt it was slightly inappropriate and off color

Probably overthinking and second guessing myself again

That was part of my problem, the first couple of things I was going to post had stuff in it that might have been considered inappropriate by one or more people around here...

Note to Andrew and Paul:

Do you think we could start a thread called "Inappropriate and Off-Color Reading: May Offend Some People"

Sure, Joan. However, the minute anyone posts in there, the posts would automatically be removed...lol

Actually, we would have to discuss internally, how to set policy on moderating something like that. We couldn't very well create a free-for-all, but, being able to freely speak your mind and vent is therapeutic as well.

Perhaps we'll discuss this topic among the moderators

I have to say I AGREE that a free-for-all is not particularly mentally healthy for anyone but appropriately speaking one's mind can be therapeutic....

and a discussion as you say sounds like a great idea....

Hey Andrew,

Is there any way to have Journaling not come up at the top when you click on Creative Writing. Just because one does Journal does not mean they want to post them online when posting poems. I guess it is just my pet peeve, but if it could be changed, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
James

I am thinking of creating a Poetry Section right below the Journaling section. I hope this makes it easier to use. The reason the Jouraling section shows on top, is that it is a sub-heading, while all the poetry are posts within the same section.

By moving all the poetry to a poetry sub-section, hopefully there will be less of an issue.

Does this make sense? Does this resolve this issue? Let me know

I Think that would do the trick....Don't mean to picky, I just post in that area a lot and it was kind of annoying. Thanks for being so responsive to suggestions!
