A pair of feedback requests

Although the blog has been silent for a few weeks, I assure you I’m still alive and kicking. In fact, I took a good two-week holiday from the site while off in the Dominican Republic in August, letting the charming and multi-talented Protagonize Moderation Team handle the goings on of the site while I was away. So I’d like to extend my thanks and heartfelt appreciation to all of the moderators for a job well done.

On that note, I’m back home, married, and working on the site again.

While I’m in the middle of working on new groups and subscription-related features, I’d like to open up the month of September with a couple of feedback requests to our authors. I figure the best way to solicit ideas, suggestions, and comments for these proposed new features is to make good use of the groups feature, so I’ve posted a couple of free-form survey threads to the Protagonize Pub for you folks to read and answer.

If you have a little time to kill, or if you have any strong opinions regarding how you’d like to see Protagonize evolve, I encourage you to check both of these surveys out and give me whatever feedback you’re able to provide, even if it’s a “hey, I like that idea” or a “that sucks, don’t do it!”

As they say, every little bit counts.

EDIT: I’ve added a third survey that I came up with earlier this morning. Figured I may as well take advantage while you guys were responding to the other two. :)

Note: If you haven’t checked out the pub and our other groups yet, what are you waiting for? :)

    I was just checking out the section that says donate and how you are bringing in subscriptions and such, will you be warning us ahead of time before we have to pay for our subscriptions? I’m scared that this will be implemented and my stories will be deleted as well as my account… I am very paranoid, lol, but knowing would put me at ease and prepare me for any amount of money I have to pay.
    Thank you!

    Hey Dayla,

    Oh, I think you’ve got the wrong idea. :) I’ve just clarified how subscriptions will work on the donate page and I’ve updated the FAQ with an entry about subscriptions, too.

    Subscriptions will be entirely optional — what you have right now on the site feature-wise (as well as all of the work you’ve published) will remain free.

    The Pro and Plus accounts will give you additional features on top of what you get now, as well as removing the advertising on the site when you’re logged in.

    Hope that clears things up a bit!

    Cheers,
    -nick
