I'll go with the whole "stories" section. There's been so many stories over the years that I would love to read again, but alas, have been lost when websites are taken down. Printing stories out is too risky (as I learned the hard way, when my mother was trying to find something in my closet and almost grabbed the folder containing my fave giant stories), so it'd be nice to have an archive to access online.

I go stories for sake of trying to get more work out to those who would enjoy it.

I had to vote for Story Library though my mind runneth over with ideas for this site based on Bennie's suggestions.

The Macrostat would be cool too, but I'm a story man. So stories.

I'd like to see stories or links.
Cheator's working on a VMS thing, so we're not totally SOL when it comes to that kinda stuff.

Stories for true. Cheetor's VMS could be linked to on the site somehow, and I think that would actually be a great supplement.
Moo.

I too voted for a story library, and my thoughts already have been stated far more eloquently than I could have said it myself:

I'm all with Theo on this one. Which is why a story librabry can help the writers be easily accessed and appriciated than the artist. Honestly if an art fan wants to see more work, they can always go back to click and view. I like the way Crux is helping his friends who are writers by illustrating their work in a comic form. Although not every other artist here can do the same, it's one way of promoting literal works.

As for any othe suggestions, I'm blank for the moment, I kinda like how things are here currently.

We should have a story area as there are alot of authors that would probably like to post stories on the sight. Right now i am working on my first story, i would like somewhere to put it when its done. Somewhere, where people can read stories.

I was also torn between the MS v2.0 and the Story Library. There are literally scores of good macro-fiction I've seen on websites that just aren't available any more because they were hosted on places like Geocities or Tripod, and that's a real shame. A museum for such wayward pieces of fiction would be outstanding, especially since I tend to skew storywards instead of picturewards most of the time. Hmm. I wonder if this means I'm in touch with my femininity? :)

I ultimately went with MS v 2.0, though. Why? Because VAM was probably the best thing ever, and it's sorely missed. How's *that* for sticking to your principles? :D

I went for the Story Library, but I wouldn't mind having the Macrostat 2.0 as well, because it would help me with my macro fiction.

If there's anything I can do to help with the library, just ask.
