    I'm not big on pics; you may have noticed my lack of an avi here. I'm not very photogenic anyway--you've been spared some eye pain. besides, I'm not the only one without a picture of me on facebook. (ETA: There's a pic now, but it's not of me... or is it?)

    As for the other thing, whatever. Ilasir isn't my "online persona". What a silly idea.

    Well since I'm the only female so far it's pretty obvious.

    AA- got to differentiate yourself from all the other Roberts. Surprised at how many there are for such a small group.
    Just noticed your pic is in Walmart. That cracks me up for some odd reason.


    Ha, yes. I am taking pictures of "Angel Cat Sugar" China/Walmart's call to "Hello Kitty". I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it. What kind of name is "Angel Cat Sugar".

    I'm with OX.

    Facebook is a place for friends to keep in contact, share news, and tell each other about their weekends. I reckon very few people go onto it searching for writing forums.

    In fact there are quite a few writing groups on Facebook.

    I don't think it is THE long-term solution to the forum's problems, but it certainly doesn't do any harm. And I think some of us enjoy joining and seeing that there are in fact, real people and not evil communist robots typing all these haughty messages.

    A badly translated one?




    Sam and NTO- There are many many writers groups on facebook. I don't know how many are specifically focused on forums, but there's a lot of info shared around on that site, so if someone saw one of their friends in the group, I think a fair number would give the site a look. I'm not saying it would contribute greatly to a flow of new members, but still.

    Seriously, what's with the negativity? No one claimed that a facebook group would solve WF's problems. It's just another thing to build more of a community and to reach out to potential members.

    Lol, looks like those complaints about general negativity around here are not unwarranted. Although it's much what you would expect from NTO. Little surprised that Sam's pitching in, though.

    It's easier to try than to prove it can't be done.
