I know that loads of you are from the Episode forums and that’s absolutely great!
I also know that a lot of you have come here because you’re not feeling particularly great about the Episode community at the moment. Again, this is fair enough.
However, I’m going to be closing all of the Episode hate threads for a few different reasons.
- Even despite my ban, Episode has given my 4 years of joy reading the stories and I don’t want to remember it with so much bitterness.
- I don’t think it’s a good idea to be spreading the negativity you may feel onto this forum. We may have our grievances, but we shouldn’t let that consume us.
- I kinda want this forum to have an identity of its own. I want us to be able to chat about anything and expand our forum to include new people who write for other apps. Right now, we’re stuck on the same old points.
- This forum is a chance for us to reinvent ourselves! I admit that I wasn’t the most… tactful of people on the Episode forums and, even though I meant well, a lot of my threads could be taken really badly. I’m sure many of us can say the same thing. Let’s not dwell on the past. Let’s use this opportunity to grow as writers and people!
Of course, you can still talk about updates and stories and anything you want to. Promote anything! But the threads directed at hating on Episode at a company are just getting a little old now.
I hope you understand! I’m not trying to silence you. I just want us to be a more positive place and I do appreciate Episode for the time it gave me. I appreciate Episode for giving me the chance to meet you all and read your stories.
You can PM me if you have any questions. My doors are always open (unless I’m asleep)
