There was some interest expressed about being able to tell your “life story”

The character limit here is 10,000. Which is not nearly enough to say everything you have to say. Plus, the story you spend a long time writing, may go unoticed because it didn’t get enough interaction, falling it to be lost in the backlogs, rarely to be seen again. Nothing wrong with that though, this is a discussion forum, not a filing cabinet for all of our words.

So, I made a filing cabinet for all our words.

https://www.reddit.com/r/SSstory/

r/SSstory is a PRIVATE subreddit that will ONLY allow users from this forum to join. The character limit is 40,000, and the way the subreddit will document and display the stories will be much more user friendly for people looking to tell/read a long story. It also will abide by all of Reddit’s rules and regulations

If you wish to tell your life story, or a story that is too long for here, one you think only 3 people would be willing to read, come post it there.

If I do not have the support of the mods and admins here, I will shut down the sub and this will go away.

Just an idea I figured I’d put into action, instead of just speculating about it, and see what you guys think.

If you like the idea, but not my execution, I’m open to other ways. I’m just not tech savvy and making a sub reddit is about the limit of what I can do lol.

Interesting thread. I have nothing to contribute here but I appreciate that you posted it appropriately to “off topic” - a lot of people forget this.

Yeaaa I had a good track record until one of my posts just got moved to off topic like 10 minutes ago haha. I should of put it here in retrospect. Sometimes it’s not 100% clear where something belongs. Good thing we got mods on it!

might be interested, have already been frustrated at the limits on posts on the private pages, and the limits on post editing on here. not the mods issue just limitations of site.

reason why have already suggested do as another option, and have a tumblr linked to here, but reddit could be good too.

so ty?

Also regarding Reddit’s rules, it’s a private sub, and we can still tell our story by still following their rules. If it gets reported, it’s because somebody here did it.

I'm drifting towards a star wars episodic epic , ( modest aspirations....)

That will involve planning and forward thinking .... obviously not my strong suit .

Just recently I saw the virtue of the 'short story '

( a form I have always loathed for it's seeming lack of meat and depth.)

But now I see it as an extended poem , focusing on a symbolic moment , event ...
and i can see I may milk a few of those 'events' inside the 'storm o life' ....

in between composing all the other master pieces ...
( grandiosity much ... ? )
or maybe I'll just vent

Don't know whether I'm serious or joking half the time .

I'm falling into the aesthetic self conscious chasm ........ heeeeeeeeeeeeeelp.

Been the bane of me life .

Thank You! Its RottenFlowerBrains with a en not ing like this account

You’ve been approved. That makes 4 of us now. It’s empty still but it will fill. I’m still working on the sidebar and figuring out how to be a mod, then I’m going to add some content myself.

I also will need a second mod. I don’t plan on being around much longer so it would be nice if somebody who likes the idea would be willing to be in charge of it.
