Hey! Wondering?

I admit, I’ve been despairing over this whole uproar. I feel let down by “the people,” but I’ve started to come to grips with this.
However, this does not mean I’m giving up.
I suggest we look for alternative sites, and then try to find out who’s going where. Or, the links to people’s blogs, should that apply.
I haven’t poked around yet, but I noticed somebody had mentioned on the blog announcement (link’s above in that ugly red-and-black Bar of Death) a site called Protagonize. As I mentioned, I have yet to poke around, but on the outset it seems to be a bit like this site, as far as collaboration and a community goes.
Any other suggestions?

My advice: plan for the worst, hope for the best, and as I often say: It could be worse.

Keep your chins up!
Paz, amor, y esperanza,

    Hey G2: AS you are one of the people that i know doesn’t have a facebook account just yet… i figured i’ll fill you in on comments we left on another thread:

    @NightMaiden, kevin will be launching a “ficelts graveyard? with all of the Ficlets on here, so, thankfully those will not be lost for ever.
    kevin has started work on a ficlets successor. yay! all the details are on the Facebook group “i write ficlets?

  • from ALRO613 ♪ LoA ♫:

    I encourage everyone who reads this to go to Facebook (if you can) and join the I write ficlets GROUP .
    There, Kevin has assured us that he is working to develop a site similar to Ficlets and will TRY to launch it around Jan. 15…
    HE STRESSES , however, that he cannot guarrantee the date of the launch.
    I even offered my own services should he require them.

    So Ficlets may die .. but something better may be on the horizon.

  • from ALRO613 ♪ LoA ♫:

    I just wanted to add a little detail to the Facebook thread for those that do not, or cannot get an account at Facebook.

    ALSO : I’d like to point people to an ONLINE place to publish your ficlets (for posterity).

    I’m putting all of my backed up ficlets at www.redroom.com .. There are a lot of authors there who publish works .. and there’s even a comments option there …

    At the very least it’s a place to put your works online somewhere for others to enjoy.

    so i checked out the site, protagonize..
    and i think it could be a really good solution for all of us who feel a terrible loss…

  • from One Time, One Chance:

    i saw it, protagonize – it’s almost very nearly like ficlets.
    but not.
    everything is the same, except the group of people. we’re not the original gang anymore. but i guess it’s as good as it’s gonna get, until kevin’s project launches.
