I was thinking it would be cool if underneath "favorite words" on a person's personal profile you could have something for favorite saying/quote.

Thanks for all the comments.

Thanks for all the comments. Can you think of anything specific I could do to "bring out the personalities of each writer and make it easier to find like-minded people"? I need help thinking about that one.

Like-Minded people

On finding like-minded people: A lot of websites (LiveJournal and Blogger are the only ones that comes to mind right now) let you type in your interests, separated by commas; then you can click on one of your interests, such as "buying books" and a list comes up of all the people who listed "buying books" as one of their interests.

Sorry, I missed the poll. :(

Some good ideas

More artistic, More love of the letter, and more focus on the writers were my three favorites. I didn't like the "online magazine" idea as much; I've always thought of magazines as common place, and have apreciated Apricotpie's uniqueness. I hope whatever change comes will continue in that legacy.

I accidentally voted twice

I accidentally voted twice for "Love of the letter".

That and more focus on the writers are my preferred choices. However, I wouldn't want to see this site become more of a social site. I think the writing should be first and foremost.

I voted for "more focused on the writers." I love that idea. :) "Make apricotpie more artistic" and "more love of the letter" are neat ideas too.

Melissa | Tue, 04/29/2008

Just a thought

I put more focused on the writers, but I think a lot of them are good ideas. The one about making apricotpie more artistic, with hand-drawn pictures is a good idea, especially if the people who post on the site could send in a picture they drew and get it put up on the site (this is of course coming from someone who enjoys drawing). Just a thought =]

I voted for "more focused on the writers", but I also liked "more artistic" and "Love of the letter".

I like the Poll ideas! :)
u know how u put a poem on the front page - well I think u should have a poll. whenever someone visits a poem/story that they really like there should be a button like a rating and at the end of the week the highest rating hsould be put on the front page. just an idea

I put 'more focused on the writers', ect.
It's a neat website already, and I don't want it to change too much!

One thing I would llike to see changed is the photo upload being changed so you can type in a URL to upload it from, say, photobucket.

Do you like the way a website looks?

I am thinking about redesigning apricotpie, and in addition to getting your opinions in this poll I am also looking for examples of website that have good designs. If you have a website or two that you just enjoy looking at, please post the link here as a comment so I can take a look, too!

Ben, I love the website the

Ben, I love the website the way it is, although I think the more artistic side of it is a great idea too! Maybe something with showing the authors' personalities could be like kinda an author interview posted somewhere on the site every month...I dunno maybe that's a dumb idea, and we kinda get that in our bios anyway. Just a thought!

I think the interview idea is excellent. You can definitely go deeper.
