|The server overhaul and update is complete (we hope)!|
Updated software and more importantly replaced bad ram chips and expanded the memory in the process. Authors, FTP is active again. The number of connections has been increased higher then it ever was and all caching schemes turned back on. This should eliminate issues some reported of stories been cut off and not fully loading.
We assume this solves the problems the server has experienced in the past few months. But real test is having it run for several weeks or months without any issues. Only time will tell.
|06/03/2001||2 NEW Story Selectors Added|
|Your Task Force is pleased to announce 2 NEW search functions just added to Fictionmania.|
Grab Bag U Select Categories-Keywords
Grab Bag All Categories-Keywords
You will find the new links for this new search functions at the top of just about every page on the site. The are located on the last row of the links.
They will return 6 stories. The display pages act way different then any other pages on the site. When you click on a page it will pop a new window leaving the random selection under the new window. Just close the top most window and you are back at your search results. We figured you might find two stories on the selection you might want to read and if you read one and backed your browser up you would get 6 new random stories loosing the second one you wanted to read based on the way most pages here work. Confused? So are we. But try it out and you will see what we mean. This works for all links on these new pages, including reading and posting reviews (hint hint)
Your Task Force aims to please and respond to site modifications to make this a better place for all. We also aim to turn boys into girls when they visit this site. Still working on that one. But getting closer!

|05/27/2001||New uncensored Message Board|
|A new uncensored hyperboard has been created as part of an experiment. The main board will stay under it's current rules. The new board called Mosh Pit is a wide open free wheeling anything goes system with no censorship. It is in test mode for the next 24 to 48 hrs and might become a permanent part of Fictionmania.|
You must be warned however, you use it at your own risk. If the heat is to high then we suggest you get out of the kitchen and consider the Main Hyperboard. The link to the old hyperboard remains the same. The link to Mosh Pit can be found on the main hyperboard just above the messages and also at the top of most every page on the site.
