Subject: I'd second the above sentiments

...and almost a week later just to re-iterate my point.

It's lovely to have a corner of the internet where you don't have to insta-reply or be left behind.

I forget exactly how I came to find the PPC in the first place (I suspect LiveJournal was involved somehow) but it was definitely word-of-mouth. I suspect that not actively advertising functions as a sort of filter for those who wouldn't be a good fit by requiring some active effort.

That said, I don't think its wrong to brainstorm ways to make the community better. I think the PPC made me a wildly better writer and reader. Heck, part of the reason I learned HTML was the PPC. If I understand Neo Skater correctly, their main concern is lack of writing output. The main limit on my productivity (and perhaps others) is #reallife, but I could certainly beta. Perhaps a thread to match up betas with writers, or people with collaborators? NaNoWriteMo style challenges?

(I have no opinions re: discord except that it makes me feel old somehow :)
