    <insert back in my day rant here>

    That said, I can't say I'm the solution to that issue, seeing as I'm not exactly one to write fanfiction on an appropriate subject, what with my brone cred being 5 years out of date.

    Not one to write one manually anyways.

    Well, I was considering having something to generate the fanfics automatically, but honestly without getting other people in on the action that's a drop in the ocean.

    I mostly write Ranma 1/2 fanfics, and even then I haven't written anything in a while.

    Isn't Fimfiction much more reliable medium for posting fan fiction in the first place?

    Yes, but nostalgia. This is the section that pulled me in to the forum 5 years ago, although not because of it's brilliant content.

    Suit yourself then, I guess. A quick glance reveals a selection of quality that ranges from questionable to... More questionable.

    Well, back when I first beheld it, the only submissions were literally none of them. Which is arguable better, but still.

    FimFic does have higher standards. And that's not saying much.

    This place was dead when I posted something here, so I didn't feel like sharing anything else.

    I probably wouldn't mind sharing some ideas for adoption, or discussing them, but I'm not sure if you can do that -- and, if so, where.
