    Oh yeah, and before anyone says it, I know this is "spam" but, meh, I've done it before, and in a way I am trying to get people involved in something nice.

    What kind of writing do you want?
    Articles? Short stories? Diarys?

    I'd maybe be interested, if I got a little more details :)

    i'd love to, but last time i put any of my writing up on the net, i found out some cheeky fucker has stolen it and passed it off as their own.

    if that wasn't bad enough, they entered a competition with it and won! :impissed:

    my mate was looking at the competition results cause he's was a writer too, and he was all 'isn't that your poem?'

    cheeky bastards.

    i didn't, no. i should have done, really, but i didn't think they would believe me.

    i could have provided a link to the page, but there would be no way of telling i hadn't put the page up after the person had won the competition.

    Would like to become a part of the site/page/whatever it might be, but afraid that it might get stolen by someone else like it had happened to kaffrin.

    Really can't trust some people on the internet, but I am not saying that anyone that part of the site or managed the site would do that, but I'm just saying that if anyone, who is an asshole like that, would just come along and still one of my poems or something.

    The writings are divided up into catagories:
    * Rants
    * Music and Film Reviews
    * Fiction and Poetry
    * Photography and Art
    Pretty much anything you write can be placed into one of these. We don't have a word limits or genre preferances, and we like different styles of writing, so don't please don't feel you have to write like others have already written.

    Swiping things off the internet (eTheft) is a pain, and all around us. I could sit down and word a copyright notice if you want, but I really don't want to have to. It just seems a little cold to me. I do it on my own sites, but I'm hoping it's not needed on Concrete Angel. It makes it seem far too commercial if we have copyright notices.
    Putting anything anywhere comes with a certain risk. I guess if it happens, and we all bitch about it for long enough, we'll get our way!

    i may have just thought of a way to stop it though.

    if you post your work to a site where your entry is times and dated, like thesite, or livejournal. then you would be able to prove your work was around on a certain date...

    could work...

    Yeah, that can work. ANother trick is to print it out and then post it to yourself, snail mail. That puts date stamps on it, and it positive proof in court. But that involves you posting it, and sending it to them when you've been got!

    There's a little addition that puts the date stamp on webpages - I'll look into it.

    And Rude_boyz - everything's welcome!

    OK, I've looked into webbots, but I haven't managed to find one that says when the page was created. However - I have found one that says when it was last edited. So, as long as you don't want things to be edited a lot (like when you submit it, it kinda stays that way) this should give you all a time stamp.

    Check either of the short stories we've go up there so far to see what the time stamp looks like.

    These can be found by going here:

    and then clicking on Fiction and Poetry

    As for how many... I'm not too sure how many we want, but I think 150 is a little high. How about you two favourites and at some other date you can submit more?
