If you are a Fan Fiction Author, please take a little time to check out the thread about upcoming decisions to be made regarding the fan fiction process and visibility. I'm going to give the discussion another week for people to weigh in and then I'm going to post some votes. If you aren't already a fan fiction author and you are interested in doing some writing in the Whateley Universe at some point in the future, canon or otherwise... it might benefit you to get informed. The initial discussions and voting are restricted to people currently registered and promoted to fan fic author status... the followups based on those decisions will be open to all registered members.
And, of course, if you aren't registered and part of the community; your voice won't be heard.
In other news, our latest code update resulted in some CSS loss; so I had to make some template changes. Most things should be back to where they were, but it is also possible that I'm exploring new font and layout options. The most recent changes have been based on clearing up navigation... making buttons more visible, tightening up the front end of the site, and so forth. Please let me know if one of these re-do's misses something that makes the site work for your screen... or for that matter, if something changes that is more useful than normal. That's how I'll narrow down things that stay in the long term design over things that I try and revert.
For today's content release, we're going to stay in the G2 timeline but step outside the core plotline for a bit more character development. This time, it's for one of our Japanese protagonists: Mageohki's Hikaru in "Glimpses of the Sun." Enjoy!
