Happy New Year, everyone! I'd like to help usher in 2007 by announcing the winners of the Scrivenshaft Challenge!

Thank you to all participants and judges!

In the new year, why not resolve to become more active around The Unknowable Room? One way to do so is to join the Judging Pool. If you're interested in judging Scrivenshaft entries, don't forget to sign up for the 2007 Judging Pool--even if you were a member in 2006. (Please be sure to submit an e-mail address that works. :p)

Well, that's about it for now. Stay tuned for more Scrivenshaft updates as well other exciting news from the Admins.

Y'all have fun (and be safe!),
Erin

Chat Is Up!

Well, a very basic form of Unknowable Room chat is now up. [It works on Firefox and Internet Explorer now. I don't know about other browsers. :x]

Feel free to come into the chat and talk amongst yourselves as much as you want. If no one appears to be in there, don't worry--leave the window open and check back later. I'll try to hang out for a bit longer tonight, so come visit with me. :)

One thing: the applet is java, so a little window will pop up asking you if you want to trust the site content. Click yes. It's not spyware. It's just the java applet for the chat.

Also, here's how you do a couple of important things:

>> To change your nickname, type: /nick NAME where NAME is the name you want
>> To join a different room, type /join #CHANNEL where CHANNEL is the name of the room (but all you really need is #ur!)
>> To register your nickname, type: /msg chanserv register PASSWORD E-MAIL where PASSWORD is your password and E-MAIL is your e-mail address
>> To private message someone else in the room, type /msg NICKNAME TEXT where NICKNAME is the nickname of the person you want to message and TEXT is what you want to say

More news later.

The Christmas Fic Exchange is now over! I will begin posting the resulting fics to the website daily, under the alias ficexchange. The fics' authors will be revealed once they have all been posted.

The first story is Shy, someone's gift to Lynn (Y. Kuang). Go check it out!

Holidays Bring me Back

Hello, hello! Merry Christmas!

Well, I'd like to announce that I'm officially back in action for the first time in over seven months. From now on, I'm back as a full-time admin for UR and I've never been so happy to be with you guys. :) This means that you'll get a lot more facetime with mod people, so if you need anything, be it site updates, bug fixes, or even just someone to talk to, here's one more person here to help.

With that said, I've been trying very hard for the past few days to find a suitable IRC (internet relay chat) network that will be able to give us a java applet for chatting with. My goal is to get that up as soon as I can in 2007. That means you'll be able to talk to all of your favorite UR roomies in real time--no more glum forum talk for us! [I kid, I kid. I really like the forums. I do.]

It's great to be back (officially). Thanks for your patience.

Happy holidays and new year,

Dede.

[P.S.: For all of you old Solarism fans, go to my UR.org profile for a special Christmas treat. I uploaded all of the OLD Deconstruct txt files just for you guys. And... keep your eyes peeled. All this time I've been gone I've been doing some NEW writing, too.]
