I am an aspiring author, and plan to write primarily fantasy and/or science fiction. I originally came from Writing Stack Exchange, but when the owners of that website chain harmed and defamed a beloved moderator for disagreeing with them, and then refused to apologize or even acknowledge what they had done, I looked for an alternative. Thanks to the efforts of Monica Cellio and the owner of this site, ArtofCode, I was able to come here, through a reference from Cyn. I hope to do my part in making this everything SE once promised to be, and more.
It is my vision that the community which Stack Exchange has driven away eventually finds a home, here or elsewhere, and that that home becomes a place where people can hold and speak of their opinions, and defend and explain them, while maintaining an open mind to the opinions and voices of others. Such a mindset is one which is vital to the success of a Q&A site, and I look forward to seeing it being championed here.
