Still trying to move that old merchandise, eh? Look, we know a Star Trek watch when we see one, nacelles or no.

You're welcome, scottj. If this thread is typical, though, L&L's forum could use some gentle moderation if customers are actually going to find it useful.

We keep moderation to a minimum as much as possible, although we are always around checking most threads. We only prune or delete if people get rude or insulting. This is a discussion forum full of writers, so we do not try to stifle divagations. If a thread has spun off into random digressions and the op has not received an answer, however, we will step in and help or gently prod to get things back on track so that the user will not become frustrated at his or her thread being hijacked. This thread, however, was answered early on, and people are just having fun with the watch idea (something we have said we have no plans for), so I'm not sure why we would want to stem that, especially given that the op has been part of the good humour throughout. If users want formal answers from L&L without any sidetracking, they can email us directly, as we're always on hand.
All the best,

It's just that after spotting an email notification that there'd been another post, clicking on a link, being asked for my username and password, forgetting them and having to look them up, finding the thread and navigating to the end to find the latest post, after all this I couldn't help hoping for something relevant (like scottj's post), not just another "bant". The answer, of course, is not to be tempted by those notifications, but to ignore them once my question has been answered - as (you rightly point out) it had been in this case. Perhaps I should dabble in some other threads in which I don't have a direct interest, and become more familiar with the style of the Scrivener community. Thanks again, Keith.

blogueiro wrote:Funny you should ask. I sometime write flash fiction (250 words max) and can sometimes manage a sonnet, though the haiku's discipline is beyond me. The final frontier: fiction to be read on a watch. I foresee a generously sponsored literary contest with no wordcount limit, just the judges' patience as they squint at their wrists. And we, of course, would have an advantage, as we'd have Scrivener for WatchOS to help the literary juices flow.

It would be nice to have that drop right into your Scrivenings somewhere, but this will do for now. Meanwhile the Drafts app does work nicely with the Siri Reminders mechanism, and Siri on the Watch is uncannily good.
