Shameless self promotion?

So I was wondering, because I'm shameless and everyone loves self-promotion, how would people feel about a thread dedicated to forum members' writings/art/whatever?

I've had a glance through and I don't really see a thread for this, but if I've made a mistake or there's a system that I've missed, please tell me.

i love this idea, but i wouldn't want to take any light off of MeiLin. Perhaps we could do it in a small, quite out of the way corner?

I only ask that if you talk up your own work here, you talk up my work elsewhere. Smile And none of this, "oh, but I can't let people know I read a story like this!" How d'you think ToMU got so big? Because people told other people.

You seem to attract a more literate crowd. Perhaps their friends are more likely to judge?

I've sent my referral link to a few more appropriate friends...

I need to know how to insert a link in my -cough cough- gaia online forum signature so that it links to me. And I will be putting the same thing in my livejournal page. I just don't know how to do it.

{a href="mylink.com"}Like this{/a} but using the carets instead of {}.

Like this.

I've got the html syntax. I need to know how to link through my account, so I get credit for referrals. 10 points is 10 points.

Click on "my account" and your referral link is at the bottom. Use that. I'm not sure if they have to make the account right then or what.

I'm more concerned about my friends reading my comments than I am about them knowing I read the story.

That said, I did direct a 60 year old customer of mine to this site; we shall see how open minded he really is after he reads it. I did warn him there was explicit content!

i'm with you on that one

i am slightly terrified of my friends reading my comments, which is probably why i don't comment as much as i would if i hadn't told any of them.

That's one way, if you're embarrassed about things you've said here. It changes site-wide whenever you do that.

thanks for the tip!
I might consider doing that in the future, for now I'll keep it as it is though

that would save me. I'm pretty sure it's obvious who I am if you know me, just by reading my comments. Fortunately, I think one of the highest priority traits I have when selecting friends is "not easily offended, especially by explicit content". Unfortunately, most of my friends are illiterate.

I would love to have a forum thread dedicated to the arts! I think that any art student is all over the shameless self promotion concept, it's the only way to get your name heard in the world (not that I think I will ever be a fancy pants artist)

I also don't think that anyone would be on the forum if they did not absolutely love MeiLin's work. I for sure wouldn't, forums scare me...
