Things have been shifted around slightly, but you should be able to find the threads here: http://bigreaders.myfastforum.org/forum22.php

You can also find all of the threads you have posted to from your profile page (click the Profile button beneath your post on this thread - it's worth bookmarking it on your browser for quick reference in the future).

well you did manage to hide that section
Authors away
It  is an important subject and deserves its
own  section... not a sub forum !

Our thinking was that the homepage was looking rather cluttered with so many forums and it needed a bit of a tidy. Still tinkering about with things at the moment to try and find a happy medium. Feedback is always welcome, though  Smile

You should be able to find all of your own posts at http://bigreaders.myfastforum.org/search.php?search_author=goldbug

Goldbug, apologies if you struggled to find the threads - I did send an email to everyone about it, so if your email address on your profile is up to date, you should have received that.

I may well have been over-zealous in tidying things up, and haven't had much of a chance to think about it all any further, nor will I have for the next six weeks or so - but it is all able to be changed, so we can move things again if need be.

yES,   put  .....Authors.... as its own
section  near the top of the board
We can get lots of  dedicated threads in there
discussing the authors..  biogs ... their life and times  etc

Hiding such a section away like that ...
............its almost criminal  !

I hope E/V doesn't mind, but I have moved it to the "General bookish stuff" section and made it no longer a sub-forum. I think maybe it's better there rather than in the fiction section - after all, not all of the threads currently extant are about writers of fiction.

Well  at least the section is  now  up
on the main page in full view
... not hidden away like before !
I thought it had been deleted !

I would put   'Authors'   and  the  'Novels'  sections  as the two most important section
and  both deserve preference
(and prominence )

Hello Goldbug,

The forum on prose fiction (novels and short stories) is currently given the same prominence at the fora on poetry, drama and non-fiction. That’s probably as it should be, as there is no reason to elevate discussion of novels above that of other forms of writing.

Of course, it is difficult to get the balance right in these matters, and we have tried to figure out as best we can how to structure this board. (Except for me – I was too damn lazy!) But as a democratic forum, we shall certainly go by majority opinion of the contributors on this and on other matters related to the board.
