Announcement: The new Buried Gems feature

Hi there,

At GHL's suggestion, I will try to establish a "Buried Gems" feature on SIYE. I'll rummage the SIYE treasure chests for stories written in the early SIYE years. The "Buried Gems" feature is intended to remind the long-time readers of this site of the stories they read many years ago, and help the somewhat newer readers to find some of the old gems buried in the depths of SIYE.

Of course, everyone is invited to suggest his/her favourite story. Just send me a PM with the title of the story, the name of the author, and a few lines with a short description of the story, why you liked it so much, and why you think the others should read it. The suggested stories should have been written before 2010, and they should be complete.

For starters, it is planned to present a story every 4-5 weeks. Dependent on the number of voluntary contributions, I'd consider posting the new edition of the feature sooner. The first edition of the Buried Gems will be released within the next few days.

Yay! I would love to find some good, completed stories to read. I keep tripping over that one and getting hooked on incomplete stories that haven't been updated in forever. That just makes me sad... So this sounds lovely!

Some of the incomplete stories are fantastic. I wouldn't necessarily discount them. I do believe GHL read an unfinished story and finished it himself... I like the concept regardless.

We talked about it and decided that we want to start the Buried Gems with complete stories. There're readers who don't like incomplete stories so much. I agree with you, however, that there are very good incomplete stories out there, some of my favourites are not on my official favourites list because they are incomplete, e.g. the Unbreakable Vow.
