Revamping Our Dying Literature Section... I Nominate Divepen1 And Llaykorn Mods by repogirl(f): 11:23am On Dec 28, 2015
I have been a writer on this section for over three years now and it is regretful to say that the section has been left to degradation.

Writers have now migrated to the romance and sexuality sections in order to get more readers and appreciation for their works.

What crime did we commit in here that our works can't grace front page anymore? All we beg for is a little recognition especially for the hardworking, upcoming writers here. It just isn't fair.

I think the blame falls on the mod in charge, he probably needs assistance and that's why I am advocating for literary inclined, passionate contributors from this section to help out.

I hereby nominate Divepen1 for Mod/asst. Mod for Lit. Section and Llaykorn mod for poetry section.

Both members have been dedicated to this section for years now... And have shown a passion for literature and poetry.

I have been in talks with them and they have agreed to do their best to revamp the section.

Below is evidence of threads they started to boost activity in the section

Please let's do this for all literature lovers on Nairaland. This section has a lot of untapped potential...all they need is a little recognition for their efforts.

Oga Seun, please remember us at this end.... We still deserve to be on the front-page. It was a story by Virgo, Umari Anyim on the frontpage that made me pick up my pen and begin writing again and Nairaland has taken me quite beyond my own expectations.

All I ask is that you continue to do this for others. Thank you.

Very true. Literature section cannot die. The nominees are regulars here and hardworking too. I support.

Accepted but it still needs the approval of Seun Osewa, by whose authority we can proceed to see the expected change

Thanks for the nomination, Repogirl and yes, I agree with you. The Literature Section and it's sub-section are in need of passionate people who can revive them. I hope Seun looks into your request.

Oga seun please address this issue. many people are tired of been deprived of knowledge and "sensible" entertainment on this site.

I seriously think you guys are just wasting your time. The admins won't listen to you. I think they want the section to rot and ooze slime. This section is a proof of the reading culture that's dying in the nation. The moderators don't give a damn about the Literature Section, the supermods don't...and, hell, Seun doesn't! I've sent him mails concerning this section but they were ignored. What makes you think he would listen to you this time around? This is basically another thread that would be swept under the rug, or damned into obscurity. However, if by some divine means, you are heard, I hope the nominated enthusiasts would show their mettle and recommend sensible topics for front page. We really don't want to soil the reputations of the great forum and the dying wonderful section. I've come across some stories so poorly written that they pose danger to the views of innocent readers.

Writers are advised to write stuff that are really frontpage-worthy. You can't honestly write something that leaves a ridiculous trail of grammatical blunders and still clamour for front page. Let's learn to write carefully.

We will overcome. Made Mod or not we'll build this ground because a new generation will need to meet good literature in Nigeria.

I hear you LarrySun, and it seems you are right.... Its just too bad. We had a good thing going on for a while but I guess everything good comes to an end.

It's like we should probably move our ministry to romance section where we will be noticed.

Many have left and will still leave because of Seun's approach to pressing issue.

I hate seeing people ignored when they are willing to help. Nonsense!

Thanks dear.

we've done our part in making this section come alive. Comments from guys like donkross1, dandypearl, heemah, ysadiq, bellovers, and the rest I can't recall now have made this section vibrant but mods hardly take notice of this. Really dunno why. I noticed guys like divepen and larrysun have been active in this section....maybe they can bring the change we want in this section.
Re: Revamping Our Dying Literature Section... I Nominate Divepen1 And Llaykorn Mods by timpaker(m): 5:57pm On Dec 28, 2015
It will only take a miracle for Seun and his Supermods to yield.

I remember those days when the front page had some topics that were entertaining and one would read and learn a thing or two... Those days I'd stroll to the literature section or open pages of great interest on front page to learn new words to improve my vocabularies, but today, the frontpage is a very unserious.

They've succeeded in turning our beloved Nairaland to Instagram and LIB with senseless topics gracing our eyes. I have observed that the topics appeals to a particular set of people, mostly undergraduates that offers relationship tutorials or social jamboree with celebritocratic tendencies.

I wish to entire Nairaland management takes this at heart and make necessary consideration to the Literature section.
