A Name for the New Writing Forums!

ETA...10/11/14... I thought about doing a new post for this, but not quite yet... after zillions of hours of tears and toil and wishing I knew PHP, the horrible registration on the site has been SOLVED!! SOLVED, I TELL YOU!! THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE!!
(who are "they?" Don't ask. Trust me.)

Much more news about the site very soon! :)



Hey all,

So... the new writing forums have been in the works for a LONG time, and they are VERY CLOSE to being ready to go! The only problem is... I can't figure out how to transfer anything from the old test site to the new one. But never fear! This can be solved! I just need to start the NEW site and then transfer all of the forum info over by hand. (Not as horrible as it sounds, actually.)

BUT... that means that I have to decide on a name for the forums RIGHT NOW.

So. I need some input here! Lyndsie's suggestion was www.allfic.com, and I have to say that I think this is a great name. I really want to be inclusive with these forums, and I do a LOT of nonfic writing. So I want a name that shows it's a welcoming space for nonfic.

The only thing I wonder about it is... should the name include some information that reflects the fact that it's a writing forum for fanfic authors who want to work on original fics/nonfics? That's why I also thought of the second domain name idea. And I think that www.fanfictoallfic.com does convey that concept.

THOUGHTS! Questions, comments, ideas! Now is the time... because I have to decide very soon!

A New Podcast And a New Art Page.

YES! This is real. NO!! You are not imagining it. There is an actual real-live new podcast for the first time in six years!! Good things come to those who wait!!!!

Here's what you do. First, you're going to go to the link and listen to the podcast.
The Love We Deserve, by writerdragonfly.

This fic is from the last D/G Exchange, and it was one of my absolute favorites.

Alternately, you can find it by clicking on the "Wireless" link in the upper right hand side of this page.

THEN, you're going to go to the comment thread and leave a review! That's right here.

YES, THE PODCASTS FINALLY ARE LIVING AGAIN.

SHOW THIS AUTHOR SOME LOVE.

ETA: Some people were having problems downloading the file. I emailed the amazing Lyndsie, and it should all be fixed!

And on that note... the OFIC forums are getting extremely close to being ready to go. There are still some bugs to be worked out, though. So, more updates on those soon.

ANDANDAND. ETA.
There is now a NEW art page for FIA. Brand new. Still under warranty. Can be returned for a full refund. (Okay, it was free, but you get the idea... ;) And the link is on the bottom of the page, right next to the other two icons!! Go down there and click click click!

Net Neutrality and FIA!


Hey all,

So here's a message from our very own amazing dykeadellic! This is a really important issue, so please check it out... I can't get YT videos to embed, but both links work (pic above, text below).

The short version? Some people want the net to become a two-tier system of the fast and the slow, where the playing field is not level. Guess which tier your site will be on if you're not a multinational corporation?

(checks)

Nope, FIA is still not one of those. Something tells me it's not happening anytime soon.

(And thus endeth the political content for the day...)

"I'm sure you will all be hearing a lot about Net Neutrality in the coming days. This link will take you to Youtube where a comedian will explain exactly what it is, and why it is important. Bear in mind when watching that without Net Neutrality, this website may very well not be able to run. So educate yourselves, send e-mails to your Congressman, and make sure FIA can stay running."
