I'm loving the 12 Days of Critmas! More critique encouraging community projects would be wonderful throughout the year (definitely keep this one).

I've gotten plenty from the dA literature community already. Perhaps, far more than I deserve and likely more than I've given back. In 2013, I mean to balance this out by getting more involved in community events, sponsoring more contests, providing more critiques, and mentoring young/beginning writers however I can.

I'd like to participate in events that bring new people and ideas together! I want someone to change my mind about things, people to argue (the friendly way) with, and to talk about writing as a craft. Finding pieces to critique and talk about are awesome activities.

The meet and greet thing seems like fun, but I don't think there have been any in my area? Expanding that type of thing could also be great.

Arguing makes me happy :la:

The meet and greet was a chat event. We'll do more of those!

I've never actually participated in a chat event... By the time I get the message that they're happening it's several hours later, or they're for times I am asleep. I keep meaning to do those critique events, too.

Arguing is the best! I learn so much from talking with people who don't agree with me. As much as having people on your side is nice, it can be a bit lethargic. I guess it's good for refining already held views, but not for challenging them.

Maybe I just want to fight people.

:nuu: Yeah, you gotta keep an eye for the ones announced well in advance. And mark it or something. What time zone are you in?

I know, right?!

There's nothing wrong with being argumentative.

I'm Pacific West Coast, -8. I tend to think that DA has a kind of East Coast Bias, which is understandable but a little inconvenient. I'm also a big baby when it comes to getting enough sleep, so events that I could conceivably stay up for get skipped.

Whats your timezone?

CST. Haha, the problem is where people are--Australians tend to get completely screwed no matter when, it has to be earlier in the day (super-early PST) for UK, and then the US/Canada span, what, six timezones? It's a pain. And sleep is fantastic :nod:

I know. There's not really a quick fix for it. Having LOTS of events would make it easier for the users, but that's a strain on moderators/admin.

I'll just have to PLAN to attend one or something.

That sounds horrifying. Eeeew, planning!

The other thing we can do is post edited transcripts, but for things like a meet-and-greet they're not generally as useful. :(
