Work on the new site is rapidly progressing. I am still testing some options for online surveys, polling, and an online petition. I also hope to add another option for chat in the next few days.
In the meantime please take advantage of two new features that I have been able to add to the site thanks to my new host.
I have added a fanfic archive similar to the one offered on the fanfiction.net website (except that it does not have as many bells and whistles as their site). Give the developer time. I check her site for updates and will update the script as she posts updates. If you write AWTR fanfic, please submit the story to the archive. Just go to the archive home page, register as an author, and follow the simple instructions.
Another new feature that I have added is a new method of joining mailing lists connected to this site. Thanks to a script called MailGust I am now able to offer several lists through a Yahoogroups style mailing list system. There are several lists to choose from. This is experemental for the time being. If all goes well, I will ditch the old lists on Yahoo! all together. This server is more secure and since I don’t work for some big corporation I won’t sell your personal information like they do (unless you specify not to).
I do ask that when you register for these components that you use the same user information (user name, email, etc) for all of the interactive parts of the site (message boards, email lists, fanfic archive) because at some point I will be looking into consolidating all of these into one membership database and that would be easier if all three had the same info 🙂
I think that’s all for now. Check the site often for more updates.
EDIT: Most of these services are no longer around so I need to recreate them the best I can. Please be patient!
