So, guys, regulars, newcomers...what direction would you like Terror Tortellini to go in? Now, I know some of you are busy and don't think your opinions don't matter, if you got gripes bring them up, don't have me try to read your minds(even if it seems like I can read them). If you like the direction the site is going say that, too.

Would you like us to lean further away from creepypasta and become something like fiction press and make new content that consists of fiction, non-fiction writing, art, yadda yadda? Come on don't be afraid to suggest things.

Want more stuff to do? Say so, etc, etc.

I recommend the production of pornography. The lack of *** appeal in creepypasta is astounding.

I feel like we're restricting ourselves by sticking to just one genre.
I've never personally gotten into writing horror stuff.

I think the competitions were always great.

I'm seeing views, but no comments!

Maybe we should go with Broseph's suggestion of leaning away from creepypasta a little and become famous for famous sake? Or something? I dunno, I do wish the traffic would increase, even if it brings trolls, so be it...!

Competitions are a great way to become famous.

We could branch out to other genres, but I have no idea how. I don't really know of any other kinds of writing forums. Plus horror is kinda the heart and soul of the site.

Putting the site's name out there more would probably help though.

I'm not a fan of the blogspot going down but the least we can do is start up a new one. It's good to have a front page that makes it easier to access the better stories.

How about making a youtube channel for reading the best stories from this forum? Especially, the ones that can't be found anywhere else. I think that might get the site some promotion.

I suppose if extending beyond horror isn't the popular path, we could at least go beyond the image of "we're a bunch of kind of writers who write spookies sometimes."

We should try to be something more appealing to your common horror junkie or creepypasta fan, like a site more about the fandom itself rather than what just seems like a creepy poetry cafe.

For the record, I support Broseph's idea of extending beyond just doing creepypasta. In fact it's part of an idea I pitched to the IRC the other day.

I agree with CandleClocks idea of a audible TerrorTortellini, and everyone could send in their voice-overs, or do some voice-over duet/partnership thingamajigs. (I'm more of a musician than writer, so I don't really recall the correct term for that type of activity)

Being another Fictionpress would be great but I'm not sure about welcoming ALL genres. I mean, it wouldn't be called TERRORtortellini anymore, right? (If that makes any sense whatsoever). I think welcoming stuff like novels here and criticizing them (hopefully the constructive kind) would be slow at first, but with some advertising, it could turn out great in less than a year. I'm not against other genres, and neither against changing the name of this forum, but it would be kinda weird leaping away from the fundamental feels of this site. I dunno. It's just what I think.

Many people here might actually be writing novels (especially horror) but are set back by the welcoming of only Creepypasta, which are commonly short stories.

Awww, please don't branch out from the horror stuff. It's pretty much your thing... I go on here to find new scary movies, books, stories, art, etc. If it was an all-encompassing place for writing, then I would honestly just go on Wattpad or something. You got a niche here, ya know? A nice quirky little niche.

If you wanted to expand, then I would say just keep posting and developing different branches of the forum. The amount of content that could be discussed and shared goes way beyond the set limits of "Creepypasta" and "Creepy Talk" (I know there are more boards but those are the two I think of as the "main" ones that could be expanded into tons more categories.) Kno'msaying?

Random note: I agree with Ghost, getting rid of the name "Creepypasta" would make it more welcoming to all kinds of horror writing, not just short stories. I'd love to see more long things or even novels get developed on here.

I'd love to see other people starting out horror novels here, actually. I'm trying one myself but it's hard to get sincere critics since Wattpad (seen as gay by most of my friends due to all the One Direction fanfics) and Figment has this "I comment and like on yours you comment and like on mine" bullcrap. Most comments are because they want one themselves. I've seen "It was very entertaining and I like your plot." on POEMS. What. The. Phoenix.

Well if it was a forum, critics are most likely much more sincere. The problem is, doesn't most Creepypasta here that are longer than usual get ignored more? I wish it was just because CPs are expected to be short.

Haha, I haven't really been uploading creepypasta here since my second or third story. I began to just see this as a general horror fiction database. After all, creepypasta in general has really come to evolve into a form with more in common with classic horror literature. That's probably just because good flash fiction is tough to write.

Anyways, I think it would be cool if the site branched out gradually-- into fantasy or speculative fiction in general. I'm pretty content though, I just wish some of the "old" regulars would come back to posting :(

I think the site should play up its Creepypasta more if anything. That is how I found this place and why I am here. There is a surprising lack of worthwhile Creepypasta communities. I think the whole concept is still pretty unknown to most people, even horror fans, and the best thing you guys can do is introduce it to more people. The YouTube page is a good idea - you could do readings, video/image accompaninments, and more.

Personally I really don't think making things more general is the way to go - there are countless fiction websites out there. The key is finding what sets you apart and making it work.

^word. it's a niche community. getting creative with it is cool (the contests, fairfield, horror RP, etc) but expanding on stories in general rather than creepypasta shouldn't be a priority. should just stay in non creepy creativity.
