    All right, I'll throw myself back on the list again. :) Welcome to all of the newbies!

    NAME: Jaya Solo

    LOOKING FOR: Padawan

    ERA: Um... I mostly write Saga and Beyond. I actually wrote one story in Before so I'm very proud of myself for brancing out. ;)

    FAVE CHARACTERS: In no particular order... Wes Janson!, Siri, Obi-Wan, Padmé, Anakin, Tahiri, Luke, Leia...

    STRENGTHS: Humor, Dialog, Drama/Angst, Mush

    WEAKNESS: Action

    I LOVE TO WRITE: Fun, lighthearted stuff. I tend to write stories that are AU, and they're usually funny. Most of the time I write shorter things, but I've branched out into epics.

    NO WAY WILL I EVER WRITE: Nope, not tempting the plot bunnies by saying I'll never write something.

    RANDOM FACTS AND FUN INFORMATION ABOUT ME: I've trained a bunch of padawans, run the Fan Fic Orientation Guide, and am in seminary. Oh, and now I'm a new youth director. Basically, I don't really have any time to be here, but it's what I do for fun. :) And also, most of my padawans have been crazy, but the good kind, so... well, you'll just be welcomed into a big, crazy family if you pick me. ;)

    LINK TO A SAMPLE OF MY WRITING: Geez... there are so many... so I'll put down some of my sillier or shorter things (one from each era):
    Mental Note: Next Time, Act First, Think Later. This one is a slightly mushy, Siriwan in the before time period.
    Palpatine's Blog. Um... I think it's self explanitory.
    Solo's Anatomy. It's a ?cross-over? with Jaina talking like Meredith from Grey's Anatomy.

    I said that once a couple of years back and then I let SarkaVrea talk me into one. I couldn't even listen to the radio without a plot bunny biting me after that. I urge you to try one. You and I have simalar taste so when ever you get your first fic posted feel free to send me a pm.

    Since the Creche has been dormant for a while, I thought I would ask all of you out there - actively searching for Masters or Padawans, I hope :) - what it is you might like to see here in this thread. Do you like the current system of having the lists in on the first page? Is there something else you'd like to see in this thread, like a specific topic for discussion?

    I open the floor, or if you'd prefer, please drop me a PM. :)

    Maybe if every couple of days or weeks you could post the Master padawan list on the current page, to help us keep up without going to look at page one.

    Like, every time we start a new page, you put the Master Padwan list as near to the top as possible. You should like only update the one on the first page, and the most recent one.

    As G__Anakin said, reposting the list on the current page every couple of days might help. Discussion topics, off the top of my head:

    My master disappeared! What do I do?

    My padawan disappeared! What do I do?

    How to break the ice in a new pairing

    Masters: To beta or not to beta, and how to avoid hard feelings in either case

    Masters with multiple padawans: one big happy family!

    Padawans with multiple masters: does this ever happen?

    I think it's fine on the first page. Better to keep it in one place and just edit it than have it in several places that get outdated quickly. Meh, that's what I think.

    I agree with Jade Solo a little discussion would make thsi thread go a long way. And perhaps the masters could get together and help make a Creche assignments in the form of challenges. I don't know that may just need to stay on an individual level. I would enjoy it though.

    I'm not sure about re-posting the list. Keeping it updated is good, but I'm not sure if we need to repeat it so often. Plus, is that going by the default number of posts to get to a new page, or a different one? ;)

    I think challenges are probably more of an individual Master-Padawan thing. Not everyone is suited to challenges, and not everyone needs to be challenged on the same type of thing.... On the other hand, challenge suggestions and discussion could be great!

    I do like the idea of reviving the Master Training Courses and having more discussion on what kinds of things are useful in mentoring, what to look for depending on your own preferences, ideas for how to do things. The suggested discussion topics look good. :)

    Maybe featured newbies? Or even masters? I seem to remember that being done for a while -- if someone's been hanging around for a bit without making a match, they could be contacted to see if they're up for it, and they could be kind of brought to everyone's attention? *shrug* Not really sure how that worked, honestly.

    Do you know if the Masters Training Course was in this thread? Or another creche thread? I'd like to take a look at that.

    And I was thinking the same about the lists - IMO it would be better on the first pages, since we all probably have our settings to change pages at different post counts.
