RE Yes/No questions from the first page:
a lot quicker, but it certainly doesn't help people put more effort
into feedback if their answers can just be boiled down to one word. Also, it doesn't generate a good volley of exchanges, it's just a simple once back-and-forth thing.
RE putting an ongoing story or a series of short fiction into one thread:
That is perfectly fine. A table of contents would make things handy for the reader.
RE "dripping with GENIUS" bulletpoint:
It's the snarky way of saying "Do not write about
your story as if you are writing more
of the story. Answer questions in a businesslike manner. Critics do not like wading through figurative language and creative punctuation for information."
RE Post something that isn't finished work in one of the "List Your _____" threads:
I could have phrased it more tactfully, yes. But honestly, those don't breed constructive criticism, or even discussion. It's just a bunch of people posting their ideas without once commenting on someone else's.
Which is why I agree with the thought of separating writer's block into a feedback forum and a concept forum.
Edit: If I missed something I'll put it in later.
