    Hi, can we get a Boolean search function for the writing? Something where we can search for tags and through the summaries etc.?

        It just launched like last month! I’ve joined multiple writing sites that had just started out at the time and honestly, I have seen much worse. And the moderators are active, which is a delightful change!

    I wanted to enter the seven stories contest. However, it lets me up in my info but it says that the page doesn’t exist or something like that. I think you should fix that.

    Do you mean the ability to co-write stories with other users using multiple profiles?

      I think she means the game you would play in English class, you would get a topic, first person would write a chapter, pass it to the next, they would read and write another chapter. Then the fun of it would be to go back at the end and reread everything that all the different writers have created

          That game was the BEST part of English class! There’s an app similar to that I tried before but everyone is just there for the game and not actually improving their writing… but here, it would be even better since everyone here is ACTUALLY serious about writing!

    Hello,
    I don’t know if someone has already mentioned this. I know I talked in an email about it. Sometimes people like to hand their stories out to Beta Readers and/or Critique Group (Partners) to read and go over to make sure their story is ready to go to an agent before they send it. I know you (Underlined) mentioned that we could create or use an discussion board in Discussions, or put a comment in the comment section of someone’s story. It just seems a little…unorganized. Especially when sometimes people post just simple comments. Some people have already made “Books” for people to chat about their books or whatever, and that seems also unorganized and I personally wouldn’t want that. So, if you are still updating the site, is there any way we can have a section on our pages for people to help Critique our books?
    Thanks,
    Ashley

        Here is what I think she means.

        -Perhaps a better way to organize the discussions, maybe at the very list give them their own section under ‘create’ or something. Or perhaps have it set up more like a forum.

        -Also, a place for people to chat with each other without making a book for it… it’s one less space on our page where there could be a story shown up front, instead of a comments section of a book being the only place we can talk to one specific person.

        -Perhaps a way to have comments organized between just ‘comments’ and people giving out detailed reviews. That way we don’t have to sit through a bunch of comments with just smiley faces or the occasional short compliment and go immediately to where the critiques are so we can focus on our writing.

        -AND a way to let other users read a story that isn’t published, like a way to give a certain user access to the said unpublished book for critique, like a password we can give them for a specific book or perhaps something similar.

        At least, I think that is exactly what she is implying.

    Any chance y’all could alternate the color of the comments in a chain, between light grey and white or something? It’s really difficult to follow them at the moment.
    I also support a poetry genre! I do a lot of that.

    Thanks for the suggestion! The search function is not exclusive to the Create section which is why you are seeing content from all parts of the site.

    Another thing: for all the comment sections under the books, there’s no way to reply to a comment after the fourth reply (and fifth comment overall under the same first comment). The “Reply” button just isn’t there, so we can’t really have a conversation with other users. For example, if you go to my Guestbook here: https://www.getunderlined.com/writings/guestbook-2/ You’ll see that I haven’t responded to the last comment because there’s no way to do so.

      A private messaging system would probably be a better alternative to this, but if this isn’t planned, it would be greatly appreciated if you guys can fix this bug.

          Yes, a private messaging system of sorts would fix a lot of things!!! I know it mustn’t be easy to do, but it will solve a lot of the problems people have with this site hahahaha. Thank you so much for listening!
