Another big thing was that she had like some 8,000 reviews, a huge amount of story followers, etc. It just takes a lot to build up that kind of following in the first place, and then she had to rebuild it. It was just kinda disheartening, I guess.
    Oh, I see. Damn, that's a lot of reviews and followers. And I thought my FE fic was rather popular on the site. xP (80 reviews and nearly 30 followers)

    By the way folks:
    - We need seven more questions to be submitted for this month's Workshop quiz! Read the details here and send one in if you did not submit one that was chosen last month.

    - Also, it is a bit late, but we need submissions for this month's Writer's Academy lesson as well. Choose something from our list of topics (Post 20) except for punctuation and PM me with how you would write that lesson and some examples of your work to show you are knowledgeable in that topic.

    I'd send in a question, but I had one in the first quiz... xP

    And as for Academy lessons, I might try it if I find the time. But as of now, I've got other plans as well as a job. lol

    Oh yeah, that's a good point: only do it if you have the time to write one up within the next week/fortnight!

    And I know there are plenty of people out there who have stories and have not submitted a question, so you should give it a go if you want to try and get some attention for your fic!

    It does. I think Ace means between one to two weeks.

    Probably because two weeks would be closing in on May and the Spring Awards.

    Yeah, just generally too close towards the end of the month for it to be the April lesson. @Prof. Lugion: would you be interested in doing a lesson at all?

    I'll see what I can do, but don't place your bets on me just yet.

    The ratings guide is back and hopefully less confusing this time around!

    I don't think there ever was one. But genres are listed in the directory. Just without descriptions. xP

    But if you really would like there to be a genres guide, I can whip one up. I might not finish before I have to go to work though.

    You're sure that won't be too much trouble?

    Most of the genres are pretty self-explanatory, but some of them (particularly drama and psychological) are kind of vague.

    Oh, not at all. Explaining stuff was always a strong point of mine. ;)

    So no one wants to make a name for themselves by writing a lesson, or promote their story by submitting a question for the quiz? I am actually quite shocked, especially after the speed with which we had questions come in last time, and how much discussion there had been around Workshop lessons only a few weeks ago. Two slight changes to encourage people before I start being a bother :P
    - Academy Lesson: You are not restricted by the possible topics listed in the thread
    - The Quiz: If you submitted a question last time, you are allowed to submit one this time as well but it has to be for a different story, and you won't be able to take part in the quiz.

    If I don't here anything within a day I will begin asking people personally, so please save me the bother when I am in the middle of uni work and help the community out!
