For the last two IFComps, there has been a private forum for authors involved in the Comp where they can discuss the comp, reviews, etc. with each other without violating Rule 5. Unfortunately, it looks as if the forum previously used for this is offline now. I’ve heard no plans for resurrecting this forum on a different site, but I’m convinced it would be a good thing to have. There was a lot of camaraderie and excitement generated by being able to speak freely with the other entrants about our freshly-completed works.
I’ve talked with Stephen Granade and his preference is that it be here if possible. Would it be possible for intfiction.org to host a private forum for this purpose? If not, I’d be happy to set one up myself.
