Toy Master

Thomas Reynolds has suffered from headaches most of his life, when they were at their worst things always seemed to go his way. The headaches stopped around his fourteenth birthday after a very traumatic event. They have started back up, again triggered by a traumatic event, and things have gotten a whole lot crazier ever since. (older work, looking at re-writing the beginning and continuing. looking for feedback on current story.)

Really awesome story. I liked the way you played Tom, not a lot of back story but you really felt like you know him.

Neat! Never knew that there was more then 1 chapter of this. I'm liking it so far.

The full page button is making the story just a wall of text thought. I'm going to take a wild uninformed guess that no indentation is the reason; or at least I think that would make it more readable on the full text page.

Without digging deep into the database, I can't know for sure, but from looking at the web page code for the story, it would appear that the story was submitted as plain text, rather than as an HTML file.

The full-page display seems to lack a filtering process I included in the primary display page.  I'll have to see if I can easily include that in the full-page display.

As I am currently working heavily on version 2.0 of the site, I'm not going to put too much energy into it, though, so if it's not a quick-and-easy thing to do, it ain't gonna get done.

Update:

It was a VERY easy fix (just had to copy over two lines from one file to another).  The page looks better now.  This should fix any and all pages with this similar problem.

Chapter one has reviewed a Major rewrite. I added a lot more showing and details in the beginning, I know it needs more work and I plan on doing so, but would like feedback on what was changed, what works what does not work and what changes would you like to see. What areas would you like to see expanded upon.

James,

I owe you an apology, I never even entertained the thought that the site was somehow misbehaving, and made an assumption that it was a formatting issue.
I will strive not to do this in the future.

Just as a note for the future:

Even if it WAS a formatting issue, you should have yelled at me, not him.  It's my job to make sure that things look right around here.  This way, if it's a site problem, the right person is tackling it out of the gate... and if it's a problem with the formatting in the file, then the author can get help from someone who knows how to fix what's wrong in technical terms.  As this incident shows, you can never really be sure where the problem lies without digging into some kind of code (even if it's just the HTML code for the story).

Basically, if the problem is anything other than something to do with the story's content, you should complain to me.  I'll spread the misery as needed.  This way the authors can focus on just doing the writing.

Not a big deal, just letting you know.

Eric Storm

Far too many spelling errors, spoils the whole thing

And this bit of upbeat 'encouragement' will surely spur him on to improve his writing and give you more to read.

Thank you for the feedback, unfortunately I lost my main editor and sadly spelling and grammar are not my strong points.

Since I'm a terrible speller, I would (almost) never comment on spelling but your using barley (the grain in beer) instead of barely in a couple of chapters reminded me of Vanessa Ravencroft who had the habit of making that mistake about a dozen times in each chapter.

That said, it's good to see this story back, I was bummed when you pulled most of your work off SOL. Keep up with the good work.
