Isaac and I have talked it over and The Shady Tree will be returning as was requested. There will be a few changes this time around.
The entire Shady Tree will consist of one board that will be a general section. In here, the rules governing the usual ToS will apply. If someone wants to create a "suggested" sticky for setting standards in the Shady Tree, be my guest.
Within the premise of one board, people can post any kind of story regardless of draft, completion, or whatever. It can have any topic, and consist of any length. This is a board to talk about writing in general, posting stories and poems, and having a good time.
When will this board be made? Somewhere in the next few days. It'll be in the Arts & Entertainment section as it was before.
