^^I agree that FFs' in the spotlight should be chosen on a criterion apart from popularity. I don't mean to marginalize certain ffs, but weighing a worth of a story depending on how many readers a certain story has/ how many threads it generates seems a little shallow to me. Of course, they must be good stories considering the amount followers they have, but loads of other good stories get lost in the crowd because people tend to follow in packs here. Never thought I would say this for an online website, but alas... My main point is I would love to see stories in the spotlight for reasons other than their popularity. 

Stories that have different concepts, great writing with steady and engrossing pace, originality with innovation, good character development( I sometimes read a story which might have a run-of-the-mill concept, however I find the characters really strong enough to keep me hooked ) and once in a while we could have a popular story up also.

We try and choose various FFs for FF in the spotlight.. It just becomes difficult when a majority of the stories are on ArHi and we also can't disregard suggestions made by members.

But we will attempt to bring forth more stories and authors henceforth.

Stories on IF are posted because members like to write. It's merely a hobby for them. We don't require the work to be professional work for it to be posted here. To allow a thread where members can review the stories can be quite controversial and offensive to many authors who are just posting their stories to share their creativity with people that enjoy them.
being a writer myself, I totally agree to this. I write because I enjoy it and Im sure it would be awkward if someone was to judge/review my work. 
If you want to give more exposure to a story/writer then might as well pick story of the week/month however it works and choose a story that is different and has not been properly recognised and appreciated.

@bold: to suggest a story what the members have to do? Not say PM please, can we get a thread or something where we can suggest stories, obviously fallowing some rules

Hey there!  Smile
I have read few fictions and thought of giving it a try! 
Can anyone tell me how to promote the fictions we write ?!
I am totally new here and though its easy, its very confusing to learn the ropes of IF, I am trying hard and moreover I do not have any friends here who can recommend my fiction.
I have apparently no one in my buddy list accept some 5 - 6 people and I dont really know how that thing works and who exactly should I be sending PM's to when I dont know anybody here.
Also, I wanted someone who could actually read my fiction and point out my shortcomings so that I can write better the next time. But alas, I dont really know who to contact.
I just hope someone helps me with this! 
Thankyou Smile

What's wrong with PMs? =/ A thread had been tried, didn't work too well.
