Will have to contact Chief Mazi about that. However, Dygeasy is creating something in relation to writers collaboration. Mazi has opted in; it'd be great to have you there as well. wink

Yeah, I did too.

Anyway, why not embark on the part 2 of your collaboration thread? Or better still, open up a new one with a different theme to it? The success from the first one should be a motivating factor to you in setting up another one...

Why after? Why not side-by-side?

It's not like you'll be poaching writers off him. Infact, variety is the spice of life. Give us choices jare. I'd rather do similar work to what you offered with your collaboration thread than to write about other users. I'm quite certain I'm not the only one with this opinion.
