And... It's Hosting Drive Time Again, YAY!!

Hey all,

So... it's been a great year. :) I feel like we've really done some exciting things, and we've kept the momentum going with FIA. Exchanges... challenges... art... lots of fics... a new podcast... FB, Tumblr, and twitter... the coming allfics forums... and much more. There are at LEAST three of us FIA-ers on the NaNo forums, and we're all writing in November! If anyone else is doing NaNo this year, just msg me... I'm RealAnise there. Here's my page, yay.There's more about my NaNo non-novel, too. I am a REBEL... I'm writing nonfic, and it's kind of for my other fandom, you could say.

And now, after all that excitement, it's that time again!

Yep, the yearly hosting dues are due soon, and we need to raise just $200! Easy, right? ;) If everybody pitches in, it will be. Help us do even more exciting things next year! All we need is YOU to make it happen. :)

Here's the Paypal address to send donations to: dgfics @ gmail.com The reason it's not clickable is that this is just ASKING to get spam. So, once again, cut, paste, and remove those spaces, and send $ off to Paypal... dgfics @ gmail.com Paypal accounts are easy to set up, but if you don't want to, we'll figure out something else. Just msg me here.

And thanks again for being an FIA member!

News About the Forums.

Hey all,

So... I took a couple of days to think about it, and the launch date of the allfics site will be postponed until the start of December. There are a few reasons for this. One is that the registration problem has mostly been fixed, but it's not perfect. (pokes warily at registration.) Another is that I talked to the AMAZING Rowan Greenleaf over on the ffn forum group, and she's very interested in participating in the project if it's pushed back a little later. Their exchange is starting on Nov 1st.

The THIRD reason is that I'm doing NaNo this year. (50,000 words in 30 days, you know. Don't worry! I've done it before.) This was a big decision... because I'm writing about something very meaningful to me. I'm a rebel and doing nonfiction about stem cell research and regenerative medicine. I might post more about this topic later on if people are interested... and you're not EVEN going to believe this, but the topic does have some relationship to D/G. I sort of planned out a fic on the same subject last year during the last exchange, when it looked like we weren't going to get a replacement author after someone bailed. It may appear again!

So... there will be lots of updates during November, and more news soon!

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!
