Just a quick post to say welcome.

And also that I have created a back-up journal over at GreatestJournal:

http://the-last-ship.greatestjournal.com/

So in case the site goes down and LiveJournal goes down or we all decamp to GJ, that venue will also be there for us. Thank you to elderberrywine for the suggestion!

Great, thanks. I've added you as a maintainer to both journals.

Great idea! Thanks, guys!

I'll upload stories once NaNo is done and/or I'm done in.

Any time you're ready, we're ready :-) Good luck with Nanowrimo!

Do you have any preferences of where people post "help" requests -- here or at the site?

That's a good question! If you post at the site, then it generates an email to admin so that's good. But here -- well, more people would see it, wouldn't they, including admin?

For myself, as long as I am made aware of issues people are having, which works with emails to admin or with posts here, I'm good.

Of course it's all up to the members how they go about asking for help and I know some people will just ask amongst themselves. Which is fine except that I'd really like to see things. I think you had an issue today or yesterday that you talked to Claudia about and ended up deleting some of yours stories and reposting? If I'd known, I could probably have fixed it without your having to delete. So while I'm nosy by nature about wanting to know things, I really can help out in cases of needing to fix issues directly at the database table level.

I really like the idea of people posting things here -- questions, solutions, suggestions for enhancements, discussions on how you do things -- it's all good. Hmm, I might post polls on maintenance issues/enhancements to see what's most important to people as well. Be a good way of setting priorities.

Thanks for bringing up the question. Bet you didn't think I'd ramble for so long :-)

Hello! *waves*

I'm glad the comm is up & running & evidently already proving useful! :-) Good idea too about the GJ backup.

I'll be uploading more fanfic to the main site once I've figured out a few things.

Great! Thanks again for suggesting it. It's going to be *very* helpful.

Cool, I'm glad we have this community now. LJ really is a good system for this kind of thing.

Excellent for this kind of thing -- am thinking this is where the discussion happens around issues and enhancements. Then once they're closed out, document in the Wiki?

Has anyone else reported problems with the review alerts? Whenever I receive a review, or receive a comment to a review I've left, I'm sent a link to a strange-looking page that has all the homepage headings on it in a vertical list (logout, account info, top tens, etc.) but they're not links, and I'm not taken to the site or to the review. I always have to log on to the site independently, try to figure out which story was reviewed, click on the review itself, and see it (and respond, if applicable) that way.

Hm. No. Will check -- I think all my alerts to go an email I don't check often, so I'll check on that.

How delightful. Thanks!
