I think the 72 hour embargo for posting before confirmation is getting a little out of hand ...

I think newbies are getting confused with the immediate confirmation that is sent out when we upload our entries ... hence a few people going off half cocked (a musket metaphor) while the old hands wait and keep our powder dry (somebody stop me!).

Maybe this stipulation just needs to be made clearer. 

We are all desperate for gratification, which is why we do the TITLE & LOGLINE teaser posts ... And some of us tease even more by putting up our review topic, but no link ... clocking up the reads ... I'm guilty of that ...

Any suggestions?

I think the discussions we have are always interesting and a fun way to spend the time!

But perhaps we could start an underground review forum...where we just privately send each other links instead.

Why can't this be facebook where I can click a heart on this so you know how I feel about it?

Ooooh!  A subversive!  I like it ... I usually post my entries on my Facebook page early on ... why don't we start a closed Facebook group ...

What's Facebook, and why would I want one?  Being the Luddite I am forums are almost too much technology.  I do my writing with a Palomino Blackwing in 2B and an ecru engineering pad; getting that submitted is a challenge.

Joni, you could click the "Thanks" thing! Seems pretty close? 

Hope I didn't add to the confusion, was just adding a placeholder topic like others!

Weirdly, when I'm on my phone, it doesn't give that option. Only quote or reply (on my comp it's normal, though). But it doesn't notify people of the thanks, and I feel like if I heart something someone says they should be notified of the virtual love.

Maybe Slack? There's one I belong to where we could have a private channel for that sort of thing. Can even upload the files to sit there and not publicly. writerhangout.slack.com
