Feedback and comments
Yesterday, I received feedback from one of the authors here on wdc. He completely agrees that there is a lot of back-patting and condescension on this web-site. People are more interested in harvesting gifts, awards and merit badges than in good writing. A clique of writers goes about supporting and rewarding each other.

I won't be as blunt as he has been, but in a way, what he says is true. I mean, look at it this way: I honestly feel I should have been rewarded long back with some good appreciation for the amount of work I have put in on this web-site: I have run so many contests, written poems for the Slams, anti-Slams, and what not, joined campfires, got to within winning the first-ever Short-story slam, made groups of like-minded people, run surveys, mad-libs, word-hunts,written a 50000-word novel in the JulyNoWriMo, written over 10-12 stories, reviewed more than 250 items in the Endureview ... I can go on and on ... and yet, the recognition eludes me, barring badges and gift-points.

Truly, I am disappointed. And I have been a member for over two years.
