'Ello poppets!

Thank you, Holy! *loves*


We really need a new coder. Does anyone here have a really good grasp of PHP/Asp/MySQL?

The UR staff is happy to announce that we've added an additional Admin to our staff.

Congratulations to Beedaily!

Bee has been around the site since the pre-UR days of The Great Break. She's an excellent author, a past Scrivenshaft winner and is a mentor in the mentoring program. She joins the administration full of enthusiasm. Bee is heading the UR newsletter, The Owl Post as the Editor in Chief.

Everyone give Bee a hearty congratulations for joining the UR Staff! =)

In other news...
Speaking of the Admins, it has come to our attention that many areas of our site get overlooked by us. That's not fair to you, the members. With adding Bee to our staff, this gives us additional help and fresh eyes and opinions to tackle the much needed improvements and promises around the site. We're regrouping, re-analyzing and replanning - we hope that you continue to be patient (as you always have been) with us and continue sharing your ideas and thoughts with us. Hopefully, in the near future, you'll notice the changes coming around...

Hello, everyone! I hope that you all have had enjoyable holidays and the new year is treating you all well. =) It's been quite exciting around here with the fic exchange (all great stories!), the new UnknowableWiki, the new UnknowableChat, and the latest Scrivenshaft challenge!

To add a little to the mix, I would like to gather the attention of those interested in working on what will become the Unknowableroom Newsletter. By visiting the forums and this page, you can find out more information on what this project is looking to become.

If you are interested in working on this project, please visit here to fill out a simple interest application and email to me at promptly. Within the next few weeks, I hope to gather those interested and begin the planning and official discussion of what the newsletter may become.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask me! We're hoping that this project will be a great asset to our community and integrate other UR programs as well as be interactive for everyone.

Have a great day!

If you did not receive an email from me concerning the newsletter, please email me again. I've emailed everyone that I've received an app from - so please let me know.

There has been so much going on around the site lately, what with the Wiki, the Chat Room, and the Fic Exchange--and I'm overjoyed to add more to the mix!

Cycle IX: Magical Mythos of the Scrivenshaft Challenge is now open! (Forgive me for being a day late!) Don't forget to submit an entry... *grins*

Questions or comments regarding the prompt? Just comment below, or let me know over in the Forum.

Also, I'm very excited at the amount of people who have submitted their name to the Judging Pool--if you haven't joined, you're missing out! And don't worry--if you submit your name to the Pool, you can still submit entries to be judged (you just won't judge that round).

Well, I hope you're all having fun around here. I know I am.

Be safe,
