Updates and information about the site.

Fan Fiction Archive 3.0

Postby RBDash47 » Wed Jul 06, 2011 6:54 pm

Hello!

Some of you may have noticed me hinting here and elsewhere that a major update to the Archive was coming down the pipeline. I'm here to tell you that the major update is almost upon us; it's my fervent hope to have everything moved over in less than a week's time (but we'll see how that goes).

To facilitate the switchover, starting now, we will no longer be processing new submissions. If your story is already in the queue as of this point, it will still be processed and added to the Archive as per usual, but to prevent duplication of effort and to give us time to migrate to the new system, any new submissions will be held until the migration is complete. We appreciate your patience and understanding during the transition.

I personally am really excited about the new system, and I hope you all will be too. As a teaser, I'm including screenshots of the new index, which also show off the new themes available. Click to embiggen.

"Friendship" - the default, which should look familiar to current users
Image

"Luna" - a darker theme
Image

"Everfree" - a... greener theme?
Image

"Shadow" - a 'stealth' theme, for use in public places where you might not want to advertise that you're on an MLP site

The "Shadow" theme is such a great idea: lots of people asked for it, so that stories could be read in public places.

The reason we thought you'd be a good beta tester is BECAUSE you're so critical.

Everyone keeps telling me that, it's getting almost insulting.

Oh well. Being a dick has its advantages. Live and learn.

I think Hottub Time machine did it best. "Sure he's an asshole. But he's OUR asshole"

Every group has one.

And yes, it is insulting, then again, so are you. Glad to have you around. I mean who else is gonna keep my ego in check?

I don't see how you can think people valuing you for your honest opinion is insulting.

Is it too late to request a David-ism theme?

Something fluffy and cuddly, and filled with images of a Ponyfied Filly in the Blanks being forced to read naughty Pony Fiction?

Or maybe just Rainbow Dash, Rainbow Dash, Rainbow Dash! and maybe one small image at the very bottom of Rainbow Dash hugging Applejack?

C'mon! You know you wanna!!

Excellent updates. I honestly like the stealth mode for when I read stories during lunch at work. My favorite coloring is the original, to be honest.

It's just nice that someone else likes the default colors. It's my favorite, but Filly and Squirrel both like other ones.

Well, personally I prefer the originals because the other choices seem dull and don't have much life to them. I can't stand the green color, it just...ugh. The Luna coloration, maybe, but as a side choice. The originals seem...happier, more inviting.

Hah. Manly men like pink. :p

Of course it's good. Obviously I can make it better, but that's a given: I'm just all-around awesome. You know, I once won this championship for the most humble person ever.
