Member Circles βetaWith a community as large as pathetic.org, it's easy to get lost in the works of the many members. We have formed circles within the circle, grouped by interest or writing style. Circles enjoy private forums, collaboration tools, and membership tools. Patrons with ideas for new circles are invited to email a title and description to Gavin at gmr at pathetic dot org.
