So basically I've been on this site for four months, and I've only just begun getting into tales - and, to my surprise, I think I actually prefer them to SCPs. I think a lot of newer users would appreciate tales as well, but a lot of them don't read them, for the same reason I didn't at first: it's confusing, and intimidating.
There's so many canons, and a lot of the tales require that you've read other tales or SCPs beforehand; you see a lot of recurring characters that you're supposed to already know, only you don't because of how hard it can be to find the tales where they're introduced. And so on.
So what if there was a select collection of older, iconic tales that really helped define the site, and which new readers could use to orient themselves? Tales that are both important and easy to get into, either because they're standalones, or because they're the ones that started a lot of the major storylines (for example, In His Own Image and The Flytrap come to mind).
So yeah, that's my proposal, not only would it help new members familiarize themselves with the world of the Foundation, but it would help make tales a bigger, more prominent part of the site, which they deserve to be. And frankly, even after four months here, I know I could still benefit from a collection like that.
