| I was wondering how often people actually stop by and read the columns on the SLASH mainpage. There are some pretty good reads on the board. The reason I ask this is because the lack of activity in this section of Wienerville compared to others, which, in a way is surprising because some of the columns could spark up quite the debate... or maybe thread is the word I'm looking for. |
I'm not the most avid poster in this section, but I did try for a short time, and I still will occasionally. It's just odd to see posts with 0-3 replies all lined up.
So I guess my question is do you read what is put up on the mainpage? If not why?

| I pick and choose what I read on the main page. I'm more apt to take a look if it's written by someone I know to have a good writing style, or a frequent Wiener whose writing I'm familiar with. |

| Just take a peak at the amount of response CRZ gets to his stuff twice a week... The Cubs Fan...|
For whatever reason, people don't like leaving feedback on Wienerville and ANY forum you go to. Some people are good enough to e-mail - and if you leave open questions you're bound to get plenty of feedback, proof that indeed your work is being read.
I know people are reading my stuff, and that's more than enough for me. Sure feedback's nice, but if you're doing this to get your ego stroked you're writing about the WRONG sport!

Feedback is always good. Well, feedback that isn't just name-calling and what not is good.
Of course, I've not written a column in a very long time (though one is coming this week). Part of that is I "waste column ideas" here on the message boards and part of that is I don't care enough of Titan Sports to want to waste my time writing about it and part of that is wanting to write about lucha or toryumon here is focusing a little too narrowly, IMO.

| I tend to read all of them. Some of them I goto first because I like writers, others I skim through them but still read them. In fact, reading some of them has prompted me to start contributing my own pieces. Guys like cfgb, SSS, Cubs, The "Idea Man" (Spaulding), and of course CRZ have really made me think not just about what's going on in wrestling, but also that maybe I should apply my own skills as a writer with my interest in the sport (or sports entertainment).|
I know I would've liked feedback on my first piece, but I know that stuff doens't happen until you either screw up massivly or you gain a large following.

I pick and choose. I generally try to read the new people to see their style. But if I don't like the way they write or what they have to say, I don't go back.
And, like everyone else that writes, I'd love to get feedback. I know when I started writing there was one anti-fantasy thread here, but that quickly devolved into things unrelated to much of anything.

| I read most of the columns, it's just hard to think of a response to most of them besides "Yes, you are right" due to the majority of them being as insightful as they are.|
When I wrote columns for the main page I got exactly five pieces of feedback, three on Winerville after I'd specifically mentioned no one gave me feedback, one in e-mail after my first RC testing the waters here, and another in the e-mail b/c I asked for feedback.

| I read every column on the main page, because I really dig most of them.|
My experience writing for slash has been really good, as far as feedback goes. I've written like five or six columns and have received several pieces of feedback for each one, some good, some bad.
My Mr. Perfect tribute and a piece I did on wrestlers' limited movesets have gotten the most feedback, and I was very thankful to get it.

| I read almost all of the columns, like others have said if I dont like the style of a writer then I probably wont keep reading him/her. The one column I really miss is Michaelangelo's GBU (good, bad, and ugly). It was one of the first columns I read on the main board on a regular basis, and kept me coming backing and reading other columns too. |

Feedback, good or bad, is always welcome. I know that everyone may not agree with what I have to say, but that's part of writing an opinion column.

| I read almost all of them, but don't offer much feedback, for reasons already hashed over.|
One request I have of any columnist is to PLEASE spellcheck. If you can't bother to do that, I won't be bothered to read your entire column.
