We will be getting a major upgrade soon. Testing is currently going on. Just wanted you all to be aware there will be a change coming. No, I don’t have more information. Yes, all the posts and topics you’ve made will remain.

Stay tuned!

What does the php part stand for, anyway? People Haranguing People? Poop Has Pants? Pilfering Has Possibilities?

According to Wikipedia: PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, but it now stands for the recursive initialism PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.

Dear Writers of the Future Forum users,

Hello, my name is Jason Toth and I administer the websites for the writersofthefuture.com and have been tasked with the job of upgrading the existing forum.

I have been beta testing the new forum and I think from a user experience, after you are used to all of the functions, this is going to be a great upgrade. All discussions and comments will transfer over, so you can pick up right where you left off.

When we go live with the new forum, unfortunately, your passwords will need to be updated. It will require a simple auto-reset, which we will help you with.

I also see there are a number of private messages with story critiques. I am unable to transfer these to the new forum as they are encrypted. So I am asking that if you want to save your messages, please do so in the next couple of days as I am going live with the new forum before the end of March.

You will still be able to send PM messages on the new forum and works, just the old ones wont transfer over.

Know that I will be standing by to help assist with any issues that arise and hope that this upgrade is a great experience for you!

Sincerely,

Jason Toth

Spiffing, thanks Jason Toth. Will there be (or is it possible) to add the feature where clicking a thread takes us to our most recent unread post within that thread? The little icon to the left of the post titles list did this on the phpBB version.

Strangely, I didn't need to reset my password, and my avatar has reverted to an old one. 🧐

Alex, There is  a last reply box at the upper left of the topic header, as you will see by scrolling back to the top. Click on that and it takes you to the end. Yes, it's small. And Jason made it bigger, but it's still too small for people to notice easily. @JasonToth I Dont Know

You have the old set of smilies, and a new blue set that comes with the new Forum!

Let me show you a sampling of the new BLUE MAN GROUP!

 

Grinning Sweaty Love Kiss Displeased Cool Nerd Amazed Starry Eyes Evil Shocked Vomited Crazy Rabid Scared Eat Shut Mouth Gape Suspicious Bruise Crying Pray Excitement  

 

Now, can they shoot paint across the stage, create music through crazy PVC pipes, and make giant balloons for the audience to push into the air, Jason? No rush, but we WANT ALL FEATURES! Grinning

Did we always have ratings badges? I'm feeling like I have to prove myself now and I have no idea how. And were there always dancing bananas or the thank-you-Pac-Man-may-I-have-another?-Pony? But the page definitely has plenty of beep boops and bright shinies. I dig it.

I kind of like being a one-star nothing. Maybe I can be an unknown rogue sent off to do the king's bidding which even my peers don't know about. Maybe that could be what one-star nothing means.
