    Mandatory Guilt Trip: I know I'm being all preachy and shit, but there's a whole bunch of DLPers who essentially leech; read and never review. This is the chance for all you lurkers to give something back to the authors that contribute some pretty top quality literature for nothing and it only takes two seconds.​

    If we get enough subscribers to push it into the top 25 (around 400 or so) and make it on to the front page of the C2s we'd do a lot to promote our own authors as well as killing a Snarry C2 from the first page. What better reasons do you need? Come on DLP, show that when you flex your internet muscles you are a machine!

    Any stories recced from now on have to have at least undergone the Library procedure and be provided with a link to the appropriate thread.


    I spent about an hour and a half this morning running through all of the Library finding those stories rated 5 stars with more than 10 votes. It was ostensibly for my own devices (I wanted to study those that DLP have considered good for tips).

    It actually turned out to be far fewer stories than I expected; around 70 or so stories from the Library are ranked >4.50 with more than 10 votes, which surprised me. So I went through and added all the stories of 'DLP Established Authors' and that brought it up to about 150.

    Anyway as the DLP C2s are horrendously out of date, I thought you guys might find some use for it.

    Also feel free to recommend any Authors or Stories you feel ought to be here.

    Subscribed.

    Many, many thanks to you for making the effort, although none of the stories in the community have been updated for a long, long time, or are dead, or more rarely, completed. Still, thanks.

    There's been 10 updated since June.

    If there's anyone you'd like to recommend for inclusion who's producing high quality, regularly updated stuff, feel free to do so.

    Essentially, the more subscribers we get, the higher we appear in the C2 list, the more hits we get.

    Simply:

    Subscribers = Profit.

    And thanks everyone who subscribed so far :D

    I subscribed but I'm not sure if it was a good idea to include all the fics of the DLP established authors.

    For example, now you've got that first fic of the Santi (DLP part 1) in it too which is crap, compared with what he is writing now.

    I'd think it more logical to just take the stories that got rated well.

    It's always difficult to know where to draw the line. If we only went for the top rated stories, you still get a lot of crap from 2005 which wouldn't make the grade and stories like Renegade Cause and Ambient which desperately need the publicity and are far better than the stories mentioned previously which are totally dropped.

    It's better if people just tell me which stories don't belong in the C2 so I can get some sort of gauge.

    I've subscribed - and this deserves a sticky, easily.

    Would I be right in thinking this is for DLP authors, and not just authors that DLP likes?

    I went with the feeling that if they'd posted to WbA with an average of 5 stars that they were probably a 'DLP author' but I'm happy to take recommendations, provided they're somehow involved in WbA.

    Thanks for subscribing, <3.

    640 people online so far today, and only 16 subscribed?

    24! FFNet is slow to update. But this. And 680~ by my count.

    I'll subscribe once I figure it out. I still don't much like ffnet; I read WbA stories for a reason, damnit.

    Ahaha enembee, you crack me up. Just how many 'romantic novelette to while away the hours' do we have? Anyway, yeah, I agree with the 'case by case' way of adding/taking off fics.

    Rusty Red is a notable author, but now that I've remembered, WHERE'S MY DAMN UPDATE FOR ECTOMANCER ;_;

    Edit: Lol two pages of fics turns to 7 pages of fics when I set the filter to 'all'.

    I think I added 4(?) from the romance section. And there's also got to be a couple from Authors. So maybe 8 :D

    Also, to subscribe, log into FFNet account. Click 'subscribe' link at top of thread or in my signature.
