    Hello Cloudies, It's come to our attention that this comment thread recently became quite heated, and that some Cloudies are being made to feel uncomfortable. We wanted to step in and remind everyone that The Word Cloud has always been a supportive ...

    Whoops, WordCloud - you've fallen prey to the rogue apostrophe in your blog title. Happens to the best of us ;)

    Hello Oh WordCloud, just to let you know that the new format is still not working through Firefox - the top banners are all over the place. Rx

    Hello WordCloud. Do we have any dates for such a thing as a Festival of Writing in York? Will there be one? Is it in September? (don't want to clash with holiday!) Thank you.

    have you noticed a new member, kittychen, who has posted a few (interesting enough) blogs, but all advertising her printers?

    Dear Word Cloud

    Just wondering whether anything can be done to cure the problem of formatted blogs or forum pieces sometimes coming out 'en bloc' without any spacings/paragraph spaces whatsoever?

    I have experienced this and have noticed it happening more and more with others' posts. It does make the work a wee bit difficult to read.

    Hoping the techies will be able to help.

    Jill :)

    Hi - in the critiques forum there used to by IIRC three sticky posts - how to give feedback, hoe to request feedback and I forget what the third one was. All but the first have disappeared, any chance of reinstating? And on the how to request feedback, how about adding a request that posters of successive chapters/episodes include a link to the previous episode at the top of their new posting?

    Just had a thought about the annual FOW and on-line courses. I don't know how feasible it is, but it would be a great thing indeed if members could have an account to pay into, you know on the lines of PayPal.

    There are quite a few 'skint' wannabe writers who could benefit by paying in an odd few quid over the year so that it's not a strain on the budget and use the proceeds for paying for course and the FOW. Just an idea. :-)
