Collections Help  - 
 
Deleting a Collection deletes all posts, including ones older than the Collection itself, which were added by Share feature

I've noticed when you delete a Collection, it deletes all posts. Even if it was a post you wrote well before Collections existed, and shared into a Collection. This seems like a really bad idea. I'm seeing the creation of a lot of collections, and if most people don't know this, they are going to become very disappointed to find out that they have taken their content and put a time-bomb on it should they ever decide to delete the Collection. 

In that vein, can you remove a post from a Collection? (unshare?) If so, is this the work around at the moment to get a post out of a collection you want to delete?

Considering this is the first day of this feature. I am guessing they would look at feedback and enhance it in the future. Send feedback with your suggestions.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

What gets your game going?
When you play a game what are you in it for? The achievements? The story? The gameplay? Graphics? Planting seeds and watching plants grow, so you can harvest and make a loin cloth? Seriously... what pulls you into a game? What do you want out of it?

Just installed this beautiful Chrome extension for beautifying Wikipedia. Wikiwand, where have you been all Wikipedia's life?

All of my kittens, you should all go forth and download this beautiful extension for Wikipedia if you're a Wiki-junkie.

Introduction
Allow me to Introduce Myself
I'm Nathan Weaver, I've been writing for a ridiculously long time, and I'm just starting to get pretty good at the nonsense. I will be posting short stories and novellas here for your reading pleasure. I will also keep you updated in general, and about books in the pipeline. And please leave me comments to let me know how I'm doing.

I also co-own an independent production company, Onyx Dragon Productions.  We've done sketch TV stuff, short films, event videos, wedding videos, commercials, online videos, and we're in post-production on our first full-length movie, The Chalice.  Come Circle us here.

And I write lyrics, and occasionally use my pipes, for Blue Solace.  We make primarily bluesy, folksy music. 

Adds and Add-backs
I'm really bad about falling behind adding-back people who add me to their circles. This often happen, because I don't know why you added me. So the best way to get added back is to write a post share only to me; introduce yourself in it and let me know why you added me.

Here are some circles I have, which you may want to be added to. Share a post only to me to let me know if there are circles here you'd like to be added to.
  • Writers
  • NaNoWriMo
  • Readers
  • Publishers
  • Marketing
  • Movies - Filmmakers and actors land here.
  • Blogger - For Blogger.com users, because I run a Blogger Community.
  • Google - This is reserved  for Google Employees and Pages.
  • Technology
  • Education
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Onyx Dragon fans
  • Blue Solace fans
If you want to follow my writing, I'll add you to the Readers circle. If you want to follow my film-making exploits, I'll add you to the Onyx Dragon fans circle. You get the picture. 

What I Post
Honestly, I use Google+ primarily as a means to an author platform, so I post a lot about writing. I usually share these posts with Writers and Readers circles, though. I try hard to share content with the appropriate circles. I do post some about Technology and Education, because I am a Sr. Video Production Specialist working in online education. 
Bragging rights
I have 10+ years of experience in video production (having started out in television). 15+ years experience as a method actor. At age 21, I was teaching non-linear editing with Final Cut Pro at college level as a professional lecturer. Have three published books. Worked with Jack Hanna, and proved to be that silly camera man who sticks a camera in a python's face. My short horror story 'Family Secret' won a screenplay writing contest, and I got my short sci-fi story 'The Experiment' printed in The Derby Scribes.

Absolutely fantastic food at this place. I had some great fish and my wife had a burger. I think it was the Mike's burger or something, and I finished it for her. Might have been the best burger I've ever had. Highly recommend the food here.

A great little place smack-dab in the middle of a neighborhood. I learned about this place, because of their Wednesday night open mic (8pm-11pm). The open mic is great with a mixture of local musicians, poets, and some comedy (I do standup mostly at their open mic). They also have a great menu. The food is good and I haven't had a bad drink yet, either. They serve a mixture of coffee-shop style stuff, liquor and you can get a soda if you're not feeling adventurous. They regularly have performances as well, so pay attention to their schedule if you can. I've been to a couple shows outside of open mic and it is always a treat. And everyone who comes is really nice and warm. Feels like a community there on Wednesday nights.

Have been here a couple of times now with a local writers group, and have enjoyed the visits. The food is great, the atmosphere is great and the service is great. Not much to add other than that. I highly recommend you give it a try.

Huddle House is certainly not much to brag about. But it is one of the few options in Rolla open all night. I really only recommend their breakfast menu, their lunch menu is pretty poor. The service from the wait staff is always good though, so I have to say that. But then again, I'm usually only ever there in the middle of the night. Best time to be there, really. I recommend this over Waffle House, which may be the only other all-nighter option in Rolla.

Excellent food and drinks. I'm not much of a coffee drinker, never liked the taste much, but am slowly converting and I do love their Tuxedo Latte here. Any rate... good food, good drinks, and great atmosphere. It's a brand new location, with development going on about it as well. Highly recommend the yumminess that is 6 North Cafe. There are two other locations in St. Louis area. This one is in Wentzville.

Agree with the other user that this is the largest used book store in Rolla. It has a large collection of books, and you could spend hours walking in and out of rooms and shelves. And the prices are very cheap, which is nice as well. As far as service, I marked it as 'very good', but usually I'm just there to browse. They usually stay out of your way, but can be easily found at the front desk when you need them. I like taking my 4 year old here and looking for books together. They have a decent collection of children's books, plus just about every genre you can think of... from fiction/mystery/horror/sci-fi/fantasy/manga all the way to self-help and non-fiction. Highly recommend it.

Common Grounds has a great menu, decent prices, and a great atmosphere to boot. I don't live in Salem, I'm in Rolla, and don't mind heading over to Salem occasionally to enjoy this lovely place. It is a little difficult to find, at least when I went to it, Google Maps was a little confusing. If you look for the sign, and know that it's around the backside of the building it is in, that helps. One unique element about this place is that they do not fry anything. So when you get fries with a burger, it's baked waffle fries. Which are good. Any rate... go check it out, it's lovely.
