Archive temporarily closing to new submissions
The archive celebrated its first birthday on 9 November, and in the last year has grown far more quickly than our wildest dreams. Leah and I wanted to thank everyone for participating and for making the site such a success.

However, in that year Leah and I have not had a break - even during holidays we have checked frequently to make sure that stories are validated - and we've got to the point where we need to recharge our batteries, write our own stories and catch up on sleep :)

Consequently, we're taking a little time off. The archive will therefore be closed to new submissions until 1 December 2005. You will still be able to sign up for an account, receive and respond to reviews and edit current stories. The only thing you will not be able to do is add new stories or new chapters to existing stories.

There are some stories in the queue awaiting formatting edits by the authors who submitted them, and we will add these to the archive when the changes have been made. But we would appreciate it if any problems with the archive could wait until the 1 December, unless they are significant enough to harm your enjoyment of the archive.

Thank you.

We'll see you on 1 December.

Let me just say badhai (congratulations) and that Leah and yourself, both deserve a well earned break (how the hell do you guys do it all?). Again badhai on the site's first anniversary and for all the hard work you guys have done.

Lavvyan - 'Adding new stories' means adding anything, including adding new chapters to existing stories.

I've edited the news item to make this clear.

You should, however, be able to edit chapters that have already been added to the site.

Congratulations! Get some rest. Too bad that we can't send you a handsome Scottish doctor to enforce that...

You really do deserve it, this place has run seamlessly since I started reading here almost a year ago *g* If you need any help with the site at all, I'd be happy to fill in every now and then, I run my own eFiction site and know the ropes :) drop me a line anytime and thanks again, you guys rock!
