    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!

    Is there a reason that there’s a word cap on your profile description and the book description? I feel like I can hardly say what I want about my book(s) with a 250 word limit.

      I mean, I understand that some users had a bio that was WAYYYYY too long on Figment and I think that is what they are trying to avoid. It really looked unattractive and would push the stories further down the page. But I do think it is too short.

    I think I’ve found a glitch. Whenever you delete a comment from this comments section, the website automatically takes you back to the “Create” page, and you have to manually get back to this forum every time. I don’t think that this was intended…

    I think something that may set you apart from other writing sites, would be the potential to co-author. Being able to do share-like system such as google docs, and having the work be credited and appear on both authors profiles. I know writing doesn’t have to be a lone author, but just an idea!

          If you want a good example of this, Penana is a smaller writing site has the same functions that @SirSlyWolf21 is mentioning. It allows up to three co-authors and I forgot how many beta readers… but basically a way for everyone to work and critique the story before publishing it. There was a private group where they could chat as well, so that anything that needed to be confidential from the story could be.

      Yes! I do feel however that a forum set up instead of comments on an article set up for all these discussions would help keep things organized. Creating a different discussion for each specific roleplay would be useful and would actually make roleplay work. I always liked how roleplay helped me improve my writing in a simple, fun way!

    You can add to your bookshelf by clicking on the pencil icon next to “My Bookshelf” on your profile. We are having trouble with some users seeing the icon if they are on an older version of chrome. So try switching browsers if you don’t see it.

      When will we be able to add other users writing to our book shelf? That would help a lot in keeping track of what we’re reading. In addition to that, being able to “add to favorites” “add to will read” “add to currently reading”
