    What do you love about Lit-net?

    I thought it might be nice to have one of these. A sort of Lit-net appreciation thread.

    So my vocabulary and personal bibliography have extended, so to speak, since I first joined.

    Basically I like that it's a stable community. There's a lot of history here.

    It's better than Facebook.
    I would like to thank the moderators for their hard work.

    Good idea, Nicolau!

    I think there is much quality work in texts and images buried in the folds of LitNet. It is a pity our LitNet Book Project didnīt work so that some of it could be collected and preserved outside the site. There is still some vigorous blog writing, some daily poems and an occasional short story
    I also like the fidelity of some users that stay on, fighting bravely THE SOFTWARE. And that some users which arenīt regulars any more,visit the forum when they feel like it. These are signs of a community who in their golden age must have had a very intense echange.
    Though we all write in English, our community was, and still is, very varied as to background, origin and life experience. And every one has his own manner of thinking.

    Danik has a point! ALL work on literary sites should be preserved! I say ALL, because greatness is in the eye of the beholder. If literary sites die, then some great literature dies as well.

    I always think of it a bit like a long marriage.

    It was consummated early on, when there was a golden era of really intense interaction by some incredible gifted individuals and characters.

    Rocky moments when the Mumbai hackers held us all to ransom for what seemed like an eternity. We sparred back and forth in spirited cyber warfare.

    Then the afterglow period implicit in the attainment of dotage for some of us golden oldies. At that stage I quit story writing for a bit, and indulged in the origins of religious beliefs starting with the Ancient Greeks.

    Some of the stalwarts over time have included: Steve Hunley and his stories, the irrepressible Soli and his take on Turkish history / culture, Aunty with her depth of erudition and ability to gently put in their place, any who overstepped the boundaries of correct: grammar or social etiquette.

    I've even warmed to Wolf whose sheer bloody persistence in testing poetry boundaries has become surprisingly endearing.

    Lit Net is great. It just needs more members to post again like it use to.

    I like that's it's a quiet place. So lots of freedom. Like I can post ANYTHING right now and there are no moderators to stop me.

    What I always liked best about Litnet, was the strong individual voice and the courtesy of most of the users.
    But no, Tony, Politics arenīt allowed here. Not even now that the site has become so quiet.
