Sorry guys, this should go away in a few days. Let me know if it doesn't and I'll try to break it more until it fixes.

I just wanted to write a quick introduction for you all. I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, but the days have been getting away from me. Swanky added me as an admin about a month ago, and Even thought it would be a good idea for me to post an update on the news feed about it.
Basically, I just wanted to let the members know that I’m willing to help out with anything I can. If you need someone to look over your fic for grammar/spelling/plot help, don’t hesitate to email me through the contact link on my page. I’ve always had my status set as “beta reader”, but now I have a bigger platform to use.
After having a look behind the scenes, it saddens me that perfectly good stories have been left to rot by the authors. Most of them just need spacing or minor corrections. If you submit a fic and you get a rejection letter, please make the corrections! We want your stories! If you’re having trouble fixing it, or you don’t understand the corrections to be made, the admins are here to help you! Simply email us back.
Remember--the help can always start before you even submit your story, as so many members here are willing to help others during the writing process.
I continue to look forward to working with authors as an SR admin.

It's been months since we've had a new writing challenge, so after some discussion in the Shoutbox, a group of members decided on "February is for F_____". You fill in the blank with an F word. (Freedom, Fear, Fantasy, Fire, Friendship, Farts, etc). Let your imagination run wild, and just have fun. :D

Hope you're all well. I know I've been MIA lately, and I just wanted to check in and give you all an update. So the new code for the site is in progress, we're playing a waiting game right now while the creator has it in beta. On my end I've created a wordpress site with all our new features as we wait for the new fiction module.
In the meanwhile, I'm appointing two new admins to help Even out. I'll get them both started next weekend when I have a moment to onboard them. As for me, I'm still skanking around when I can. I haven't had much time to read, write or review due to my paying job and my side project. That doesn't mean I'm not here to help if you need me. Send over an email for any tech issues and I'll get back to you asap. And if anyone is on Deviant Art feel free to connect with me here.

Hey hey, I know I haven't been around for a while, but I'm on to update you on Swanky's rant below. One of our members, JenX, has been posting stolen stories. We've taken the liberty of transfering ownership of two fics to the proper author, so if you were following her as an author, we suggest you transfer your "fave". If you faved the fic, it should still be in your account with the proper author's name.
The last of the fics we discovered was taken from ficwad, but we were unable to contact the author, therefore deleted the fic entirely. It made sense since it was intended as a cross-over and she had replaced the character with Tre when she posted it on here.
If anyone has any questions, the comment box is open for action.
PS: Don't be a dick, write your own fic.
