Pretty Pictures

by Lindsay 4/24/2008 4:09:00 PM

You may have noticed that there are no longer any "No Image Available" circles.  We here at WritingRoom decided that we were sick of looking at those ugly circles and have replaced it with a bunch of pretty pictures. The image assigned to those who did not have a photo was completely random.  If you were assigned a kangaroo and aren't digging it, feel free to change it by clicking on the "Upload Photos" link.  We understand and respect that many people do not want images of themselves on the web; with this, you are able to keep your anonymity without being a circle lost in the crowd. 


We have also fixed a bunch of the little bugs that you may have stumbled upon.  Please, continue keeping us posted of any others you find-- it is greatly appreciated.


And for my shout out to some super members...MuffyMerkado, Lacuna Eidolon, mnpilot.  Check 'em out!


Your Writings

by Lindsay 4/21/2008 3:40:00 PM

I am doing my best to read most of the writings posted on the site; thank you all for sharing your talents and writings with all of us.  I am truly impressed with the caliber of work being presented here.  I can't ariticulate enough how exciting it has been to watch the community here at WritingRoom grow. 


The variety of writers, stories, and poetry has been fabulous to experience.  I have been entertained, moved and inspired by your words.  


I wanted to spotlight a few writers (and will be doing so in every blog) that have made extraordinary contributions both in the work they have been kind enough to share, and the time they have been generous enough to spend commenting and critiquing:  Kayla97068, Mike Firesmith and jlew1973. Check them out!


Lastly, I once again thank everyone for bearing with us Friday night (April 17).  We will be updating the site on Thursday.

About Last Night...

by Lindsay 4/17/2008 10:46:00 PM

Some of you may have noticed a couple of goofy things going on with the site last night.  We were in the middle of publishing some new features, and well... sometimes things go a little haywire.   Many of you received an email notification or a message from me that seemed a bit odd--I apologize.  


Also, if you noticed that there was some new stuff on the site and now it's gone -- you are not hallucinating  (I bet that's a relief to know).  We will be working out a couple kinks and then giving it another go in the next day or two.


Once again,  I apologize.


Thanks for bearing with us!

Beta Survey

by Lindsay 4/12/2008 12:10:00 PM

I want to thank everyone who took the time to fill out our beta survey. Most of you know, we are a new site, having only launched a few months ago, and the feedback has been very helpful.  We are taking into consideration many of your suggestions and comments and will be adding some of them in the very near future.


One of the many requests we had received was for an email notification system.  We have recently implemented one, so now you will be informed when someone posts a comment on your writing, or sends you a message.  We understand that sometimes your email boxes overflow so if you would like to opt out of this you can do so on your My Room page.  However, if you are not recieving the emails and wish to, you may need to change your settings on your spam filters.


Once agian,  thanks... and keep the comments coming!
