The FIA T-shirt...

You all aren't even going to believe this, but I looked in the back of a closet in a bin... and I found THE FIA t-shirt. I seriously still have this t shirt from 2006. Did anyone else buy it? I think there was a coffee mug too. I'm actually designing a t-shirt right now for a different group/fandom, and once the design is set up, it would be easy to do another one... so I was thinking... would anyone have any interest in a new FIA t-shirt this summer?? Anyway, here it is!

So many fics! :)

Hey all,
I don't really know why, but we've been getting SO many fic submissions lately. And it's really cool. And I wanted to thank you all! I am really committed to keeping this site alive, and it's amazing to see that we continue to get creative works from great writers. So to the entire FIA community, a huge thank you and a virtual chocolate cake!

Also, I'm posting a new poll question about the idea of an exchange. I really, REALLY want to keep the exchanges alive.

Some site issues...

Hey all, as you may have noticed, we are having some issues with the site. At some point, it might be necessary to put everything into maintenance mode while we work on them. The basic problem is that the underlying platform for FIA is eFiction, and eFiction has been abandoned by the original creators and is almost certainly never going to get updated again. So... that means a lot of security issues. If I could just throw money at the problem, I would have an expert tech web developer code-y person completely move the site to another platform, probably something related to Wordpress. Since the winning Powerball plan didn't work out, though... that isn't happening at the moment. :P

A tech friend is helping me through the issues, and he's doing everything he can, but he's primarily an electrical engineer and totally admits that he has no amazing web expertise. So... right now, I can't give you all any clear news. I wish I could. But what I CAN say is that I'm going to fight to keep this site going in some format. I do not want to see us just close down. A lot of sites that used eFiction have done exactly that. They've moved all of the fics onto AO3, which means that the original work survived, but the site just could not keep going on anymore. I REALLY don't want this to happen. I just don't know enough to say exactly how it can be avoided right now, but I'm determined to find out. This site has meant so much to so many people for so long.. and I want to keep it alive. :) (Maybe once we know more about exactly what would need to be done, a GoFundMe project could happen!! I just don't know yet.)

Anyway, that's about it for now... further updates when I know more!!
