Inline links would work well. Adding them to the stories would be a great idea, too!

I think the clustered and cross-referential structure of a wiki is what I'm looking for--and the "six degrees of Wikipedia" is what I mean by a process people are familiar with. If we can do that on the site itself, though, all the better!

(That's the only thought I have for right now--I'll come up with more later! :P )

I actually love the idea of in-line links, thinking about it more. My biggest qualm is that it's going to be a lot of work to add them. Is that something we ask that writers do? Or something the canon board adds? Hmm. Must think on it some more.

In the meantime, this is something I've been working on... you can see that many of the cross-links are not yet completely worked out and there are MANY articles that are not yet listed here... geez, no wonder no one could find anything! http://www.tornworld.net/settingoutline2.php

Cross links: I think this is a great idea. I think writers can add this, but the Canon Board will most probably end up adding the odd one or two. I know I will probably either miss the odd one, or just go 'huh?' at a few of them.

Karma: The karma is great, I love commenting on peoples work, but I don't often see a lot of comments on things to be honest. I am usually the only one, or there is one other person. Considering that there are quite a lot of us including the lurkers, there should be more comments. Nothing says I love your work than a 'I love this!' comment :D

Comments: As for a prize, or a draw. This is also a great idea. I have been pondering running a draw on those who comment my work and doing a little ACEO for the name pulled out of the hat. Perhaps something like that?

Thanks for the feedback and recognition.
Just a short note here: I won´t have time to answer in detail next few days but I WILL. Maybe extra time will help me sorting thoughts and opinions.

Something else that might be a point: Is it right that I have to submit at least three pieces of art/fic of/about my adopted character till I am allowed to create a new one? Do I remember right? I could not find it anymore when searching the site.
I know this is meant as a barrier against a storm of new characters no one wants to adopt, but maybe a less strict rule would would help recruiting new memebers? Everyone is more comfortable to play a character of his own imaginination (of course the overall rules should apply to them, still! No one wants a douzen supermans riding on unicorns. :lol: ). For some people it is hard to create three pieces, because as an artist (like me) drawing a human being might be a bit daunting. Some are more comfortable with drawing landscapes or animals or plants.
I know there is always the option of collaboration but from my experience this includes payment again. I would not mind THAT but some rules would be nice here, too. Let´s say an overall regularization of: 10 credits for 500 words (as an example)?

So how about only one piece featuring the adopted character? Or three submissions in general no matter what is featured? This would show the new members are interested and motivated and to keep their motivation they get allowed to create an own character.

I really understand the fact that people would like to get paid for their work. Maybe it`s because I am not as confident about my skills as others (and therefore would not ask for money) that I have got the feeling that those who contribute act mostly as service providers. You produce and produce and produce (and it`s excellent work!) but sometimes I miss the interaction, one of the most fun parts of such communities. I do not mean discussions at the forums, but such things as commenting each others works or offering collaborations. IMO it sometimes feels as if TornWorld is a maschine which targets on becoming a business one day, only. In lack of better words: the love got lost...
(Arrrgh, I wish I could express myself more clearly here. Hope you understand what I try to say.)
