Well, one thing I have to say about this forum is that your local thread title nazi got my thread closed faster than I could read the rules and edit it to make the title comply, which would prevent the forum being cluttered up as easily with dead threads. It seems a bit excessive, is all, and I think a warning would serve first-time offenders better.

Well, I could be a dick and say read the rules first. Another thing is that the mods don't like to just give warnings, because it creates more lenience in the rules in the future.

It's not like getting your thread closed is the end of the world.

Live with it?

So, no idea if this has been tried before... and I don't know whether we can do it without offending new writers... but I think it would be funny to have a thread where everyone can post their very first pieces, if nothing else just for a laugh and to show off how much everyone has grown as a writer. Mostly for laughs though. I know mine was laughable.

I'm afraid doing so though, newbies would come in and see us laughing at "first pieces" and be scared away. Any thoughts?

^I'm not sure if it warrants a new thread, but maybe running a first piece comp. would work.

How do we keep people from cheating in such a comp? Also, I would lose

I dunno, my first writings were on par with AC/DC in terms of literary content.

This could be a nice thing if people agree, we can have a temporary sticky, and have a different piece every couple of days (I don't want anyone's to get ignored), or maybe we'll have a few pieces every week...

A comp is a bad idea, in my opinion, because it does let cheating quite easily.... When it's for fun people will tend to actually show their real early stuff....

Yeah I thought about that. I don't know, we could always just go by everyone's first piece posted in S+L, since that can be checked. Not everyone would have their very first piece around still anyways. Meh.

Oh, a temporary sticky would indeed be nice. I guess this means I'll have to dig up my first piece after all

I think threads get pruned after a while. Last time I checked, I couldn't find my very first thread anymore. Then again, that was ages ago.

if we get a discussion going about how you think others have improved, I can see this going in techniques.

Great idea though. We mods will try and find a solution

Does it really matter if its not a comp? We could just have people post one every three days or so in a sticky. Like we've said... if its a comp, no one will be truthful due to competitiveness. So, we could just draw numbers and throw our piece that was "as far back as we can find." I mean, who cares. I just wanna do it for laughs, so leave it up to the user. Their first piece that wasn't "as a kid" or something.

If we don't make a special thread, I'll probably just post them anyways, as a normal thread. Just for the entertainment value.
