Discussion: What are your first impressions of Underlined?

Chapter 1

Since there are no forums I guess this is going to be how it works

So as the title suggests (and since there are no forums), what are your first impressions of the website? Personally I think it is a good start. It’s a lot like Figment, just with a different design. I feel like I lot of people were angry about it being so late but I don’t know, I wasn’t too mad about it. These things take time. The only thing I’m really unsure about is that they censor curse words in your writing. I’m not going to throw a hissy fit over it but at the same time I feel like it limits artistic expression. Hopefully they change that in the future.

What do you think?

UPDATE (21/02/18):

Underlined now has discussion topics in the CREATE section where you can ask around for swaps, introduce yourself, suggest new discussion topics, and give suggestions/ask questions. The latter is located here: https://www.getunderlined.com/create/questions-for-team-u/. Please direct bugs, suggestions, and questions there.

    I didn’t use Figment, but I’m loving Get Underlined. Just the spam and loading is pretty annoying,

    I’m new to the website and it’s not really intuitive… There is no about-page, so I’m not really sure who they are catering to and how big the influence of PRH is. Are they going to publish stories that are performing well on the site, or is this just a place for PRH to promote their own books in the ‘read’ section?
    Besides, the site looks pretty much dead to me… All stories have about one or two chapters in it and no comments or thumbs up… It’s difficult to check though, because there are no dates on chapters, no way to check how many people read the story and no forums or discussion groups of any kind. That might be a conscious choice to try and hide the inactivity on the site, but I’m not fooled easily 😛 all comments on major posts are from February 2 or earlier, so if that’s any indication… I guess I’ll stick around for a bit and see what happens.

    I just joined Underlined, and so far it’s good. I just wish it wasn’t for teens only, so a lot of people from my other website (which is in ruins now) could come in! Otherwise great site!

    I think Underlined is easy to use and I hope the content remains fresh. I did visit the “imagineink” site. Their UI and overall design gives me a headache. I’m a visual person and LOVE the way Underlined presented the quotes from “What to say next.”

    It’s been over a month since Underlined opened and I have to say that my original impressions have changed. I was really hopeful and forgiving to the new website, but ever since theimagineink launched it really puts Underlined to shame. Someone suggested a change and literally like a minute later they made the change, and it’s just old Figgies that made it too. It works a million times better than Underlined, and even better than Figment. I’ll check in on Underlined from time to time but I think I’m going to move to theimagineink as my main writing site.

      Hello, I’m coming from Figment but just now realizing they became Underlined. May I ask what theimagineink is? Cause if it’s putting this site to shame, I would love to see it because this site just isn’t doing it for me.

        theimagineink.com is the replacement writing site that Figgies made. Check it out!

    Just saying….I absolutely hate it. As a big fan of Figment, I really don’t like this. Its too hard to navigate, i can’t find all my friends, its just not as amazing as I’d hoped.

      Yeah… although I was all supportive of Underlined at first, I have to say that I haven’t used it that much since. It’s difficult to use, and I expected them to update the website quicker. Plus the whole Terms and Conditions things turned me off from posting writing. I drop in every once and a while but that’s about it.

    I think they have a lot of work to do before this thing runs like a well-oiled machine. Everything is harder. It seems you have to login for every interaction even when you’ve saved your passwords. Has anyone found a way to communicate with the powers that be in order to make some suggestions? I’m glad to be back and part of a writing community again, but so far the use of it is like slogging through mud.

      There’s an “Ask Questions” page on Create, and I believe they have an email that you can contact them directly by. Not sure exactly what it is but I’ve seen it in one of the discussion pages.

    Is there a way we can comment on another user’s profile, or a way to message them? I haven’t found it yet, so I’m just asking. I think it would be really helpful.

    Hi Cemo!
    I remember you from figment, or at least I remember the user.
    So far this new and improved writing home is actually worse than Figment is. Everything is harder to navigate and there are less options that Figment contributed. I think this was a waste of time. And the amount of time I waiting for this site to put up the writing section led me to believe there were going to be amazing, new features. I’m having a hard time finding people, there are no chat forums and it’s just a mess to me. It doesn’t advertise my writing. and it doesn’t tell me when anyone follows me.
    I liked Figment a lot better
