    Looks like the pagination bug is still not fixed, half a decade later. Good to know.

    What are people's thoughts on sharing a synopsis for their idea before beginning the writing in earnest? With that I mean, formulating and announcing their idea ahead of time, whether on the forum or in a possible discussion group, or via PM.

    I've found that spelling out what direction you're going for, whether in vague terms or firmer notes, helps getting stuff done and making you feel better about your concept. Putting a potentially complex idea into simple terms like in a pitch can also aid you in figuring out whether it is even interesting in the first place.

    What do you think?

    I don't think it should be a requirement, but it's definitely a useful tool to get other peoples' opinions on the direction you see your story going. I'll likely personally be pitching a few ideas to @Bavalt before I make a decision and start on a rough draft.
