try the communal story assembler

Posted by Plasma Studii | Tue Jun 7th 2005 4:47 p.m.

howdy.

can you folks do me a favor? this is a communal story assembler, i
need to test. to get this piece started, it has some content to
build from. http://plasmastudii.org/test/communal/communal.html
(i'll leave it there for a few days)

here's how a community can construct a coherent story.

the page shows you the story on file (initially blank). you submit
proposals for subsequent sentences. and/or you can vote on the
previously proposed sentences. (it (temporarily) adds either, just
so you can see what it would turn out like.)

when it gets 6 proposed sentences, permanently adds the one with the
most votes to the story and begins again. gradually accumulating
chosen text.

no doubt you'll stumble onto glitches i missed. but as everyone
adds, makes things so i can check the code. improve it. (also if
you just wanna send me suggestions/comments, those are always
helpful.)

thanks,

    i tried it but you can only add less than a sentence - its not a story its
    a communal poem

    well thanks.

    it usually (but not always) only lets one person add one sentence a day.

    am not sure what you mean by "half a sentence"? the text field is
    limited (80 chars) but allows a pretty long sentence. avoids run-ons
    though?
