Winner of Best 617 Hero for 2007 - Magneto (Magneto Cado Rex)
First (and only?) winner of Story of the Month for August 09 - misseDirections #3
So I finally got online something I'm really excited about. There's an update coming in a few days, so I'd really appreciate someone posting in response to this so I don't double-post and break policy. (:
A year ago, I sent a questionnaire to the various fan-fiction sites, seeing how they were run and if different things could work for different sites. If you're curious, check out the results of the 2011 Editor Roundtable hosted here, and look for the possibility of another in the future including sites I failed to include before or that didn't respond to the initial e-mail! I think it's a great thing when fan-fiction editors come together and share ideas, and it's my hope that we're able to continue to have conversations like these for the good of our sites, readers, writers, and communities in the future!
@XtremeOne1: At the end, there's a listing of my e-mail for all fan-fiction editors who are interested in being a part of the next year's Fan-Fiction Editor Roundtable hosted at Marvel Omega. At the very least, there'll be a link put on the page after your name/username back to THOIN like there is after each editor's name on the first question on Marvel Omega. If you're interested, let me know!
I just wanted to add that I thought the Editor Roundtable was pretty interesting. I've always vaguely wondered what editor's did, given that I've never been on that side of the table, so I thought it was pretty cool.
