I was a member of 'Before the Mast' for a month or so around 2011-2012, and ordinarily would not stop by to comment on a site I am no longer a member of. But seeing the negative reviews dragging down this site's rating has prompted me to leave my thoughts.
Before the Mast has never had flashy web 2.0 skin designs, but why does this matter when the forum is perfectly legible as it is? People complaining about 'noob' writing levels on the forum - Before the Mast is one of the very few forums in the mainstream roleplaying consciousness that is welcoming and open to writers for whom English is not their first language.
I joined having recently got into Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels and was hankering to write a little Age-Of-Sail - despite my severely lacking knowledge and slightly off the wall character request, the admin patiently lent me an ear and allowed me to join and play out my idea despite the fact I was a flakey, fair-weather member. I have no doubt she treats all her members with the same kindness and consideration - the site would not have existed for the best part of seven years otherwise.
So don't be quick to do down this site. I have had nothing but a positive experience from Before the Mast - this is a forum accepting of everyone, regardless of writing ability or permanence, and this is something we should celebrate.
They are the kind of site you'd call a "clique" community. If you're not one of the popular kids with basic trash characters, you dont get plots.
So many illiterate writers...
Noi siamo i piÃ¹ bravi!!!!! Noi siamo i piÃ¹ belli!!! Noi siamo ufficialmente â€œi piÃ¹ retrivi sul mercato!!!!!â€ E siamo ANCHE fascisti!!!! (Marco Pensante)Bah ….. c’Ã¨ bisogno di commentarle? Lo fanno egregiamente da sotSieinislro-fascisto.di al pascolo …….Di quelle che pensano di essere l’avanguardia di chissÃ checosa…. ma che poi tutto si riduce al “progetto”. Ovviamente finanziabile. E per quello se occorre va bene anche la Garnero (ex-coniugata SantanchÃ©).
Interesting and friendly site
A good site no matter what people here say. The site is friendly.
love this site.
awfully boring. the staff members are too exclusive, no decent plots go on, and overall just a very exclusive community that's not worth joining. they claim to be a friendly and welcoming bunch but it's quite the opposite. don't recommend joining !
ugly site, awful plot, undeveloped characters that were stupidly accepted
A total pleasure to be a part of!!
what the hell kind of stupid site is this? ugly, weird skin, illiterate staff
Awesome story, plot, ESL friendly, Noob friendly site! Really fun :D
