I’ve been thinking a lot lately about ways to increase Member participation in the site. Mostly, I want to do it because, ultimately, this whole thing is about what you all want. Sure, it’s my work up there, but I wouldn’t do it if you all weren’t there to consume it. So, I want to engage with you all a little more (in fact, it was one of my New Years Resolutions to make this into a more interactive experience).
To that end, I’ve got a couple of things planned for the near future. First, I’ve mentioned adding a discussion forum to the site. I’m not sure how many people would take advantage of it, but I’ve seen a lot of great discussions on sites like Fictionmania, and I’d like to provide an outlet for people who love TG fiction and captions. I intend to implement that by the end of next month.
However, the purpose of this post is something that’s coming a lot sooner. In the next couple of days (maybe even today, if I get the chance), I’m going to start accepting suggestions for story themes. I’ll get more into what I’m looking for when I do it, but I intend to take all the suggestions and whittle them down to four or five, then let the at-large members decide which one I’ll turn into a story. I think it’ll be a fun way for me to diversify my content (or not, if that’s what wins out) while giving you all a little ownership in the type of content I put out.
Anyway – keep an eye out for that. If you have other suggestions for how to make this experience more engaging, feel free to let me know via my CONTACT ME page.
