    @Timothy M. I'll remind you once again that the vast majority of the people reading on the site are "guests" as in not member or not logged in and unable to like or comment in such a state.
  3. I want to be clear right up from that I'm all for getting properly toasted. This toaster does the job and beeps when it's done. There is a bit of an issue when you go back to back if you are doing 4 slices for some reason. It does the job. Cheers to getting toasted!
  4. We are actively developing a change to the story system that will go with our forum software upgrade. There are a lot of things going on under the hood, but there is a fairly sizable visual change coming as well. Clicking on Newest Stories currently shows you this: Our still-in-development software update shows you this: A couple of notes here on the image: This is a work in progress and subject to change This is in the default color scheme and has not been updated to GA colors yet The idea with the interface is to put all the story sorting options right in front of you and have the listing update as you make changes. For example, if I wanted to list all the stories by either @Cia or me, I can do this: Or maybe I want to see the Premium Stories? We are working hard to make things easier for everyone. The Stories Archive software offers some really powerful features, but they are a bit fidgety and in out of the way places. The idea of the new update is to put the power right in front of you. Like... show me just the stories that I follow: Do you think this sorting method will be easier for you? Do you think it will be helpful to find specific stories? Now is a great time for feedback!
  5. The Martian

    So, this week I wanted to plug a geekfest movie. As anyone interested in space can attest, this is an interesting movie. This movie is one of those rare occasions where I liked both the book and movie adaptations. Definitely worth watching if you haven't seen.
  6. I stumbled across this site while poking around for 3d printer information. Wowser. I subscribed. https://makezine.com/ Now, I just need time to read it. lol
  7. Giving/Getting Criticism Part 1

    This is great @Comicality Feedback is fuel for so many authors and it is best to not foul that fuel source...
  8. This Monday in my Monday Movie Mania blog, I posted about The Towering Inferno. The movie was based on two books, that were also worth a read. It's actually kind of fascinating how they took concepts from each book and made them into a unique movie that worked really well on its own. Oddly enough, I like the movie better than either book, but both books stand well enough on their own. They are worth a look if you're into disaster stuff.
  9. This week's flashback brings us back to Winter 2010. Haunted. Check them out: Anthologies 2018 Spring Anthology: Now or Never - Due May 15th 2018 Spring Anthology: Encounters - Due May 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Fight Back - Due Nov 15th 2018 Fall Anthology: Good Intentions - Due Nov 15th
  10. I love my blacklights. Check out my mancave setup: Now, the two outer posters have a blacklight directly on them and the center one does not (yet) For the geeks amongst you, you've probably noticed the Star Trek Voyager box set glowing on the mid-left of the picture.
  11. This week is all about help. We have a pretty extensive help system here on-site where we've taken the time to write up the answers to the most frequently asked questions. We've also made videos for some of the features on site to make it that much easier. So first things first, help your fellow members with a quick link to the appropriate help section. Help is on the red menu on every single page of the site. Don't be afraid to click the menu. Help -FAQ - Brings you to the list of common questions. You can search for the what you are having issues with the "find on page" or "Search" function of your browser. (Ctrl-F in Windows) Or you can just read through the list. Links bring you to the proper topic in the FAQ database. You can open a Support Request by clicking "Support". We prefer you don't do this for simple things, as it'll take awhile to get to you. You'll probably get a faster response to a topic on the forums. The only exception is Premium Content issues. Those you should use the Support Request for so that we can see your account information and can troubleshoot your issue easier. Staff - Shows the list of our volunteer staff on-site. Guidelines - These are the rules. About Gay Authors - This gives you a bit of a history of the site. 15th Anniversary - This was the page we ran to celebrate our official 15th birthday. Extras - Not everything fits where we'd want it and, to avoid scaring people, we hid some of the links here for those who wanted them. Editors - List of Editors on Site. (These are people listed as an Editor on a story in the Stories archive.) Beta Readers - List of Beta Readers (These are people listed as a Beta Reader on a story in the Stories archive) Categories - List of Categories in Stories. Also available in side menu on the Stories Archive homepage. Online users - List of members currently on the site. If you wish to jump straight to the help topics, you can go here: https://www.gayauthors.org/faq/ As an example, here is a Step by Step guide to posting a story on the site: Be sure to let us know if a help topic needs to be updated. Also, let us know if we need to do a video on a specific subject to make it easier to understand.
  12. Best Sci-Fi short EVER

    Definitely cool!
  13. The Towering Inferno

    I thought I'd jump into the way back machine and bring up a movie that's even older than I am. I was big into disaster movies when I was a kid and there was quite the string of them of them in the 70's. This was a grand-daddy of them with a who's who from a couple major studios coming together. You had superstars of the time together in this thing. Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. They have exactly the same number of lines. There are a ton of other recognizable stars of the day in there and the score to the film was done by none other than John Williams. (of Star Wars theme and Jaws theme fame, you heathen!) Great movie. Top notch acting. Top notch special effects from a time before computers.
  14. A day of cleaning and organizing.  My room, my mancave, the barn and digital stuff too during breaks.  Yikes.

    1. Valkyrie

      Valkyrie

      Sounds like my day, minus the mancave and digital stuff.  :P 

    2. Reader1810

      Reader1810

      Same here, but like Val, minus the man-cave and digital stuff. Also, there will be time for reading what with a nasty two-day storm keeping me inside. 

       

      Just think, after all the organizing and cleaning how good everything will look. ;)

  15. Overworking a Story

    I tend to be a minimalist, so my editor @Cia tends to be the "add more here" type. (and fix this, this, this, that, those, these and all this too)
