Site Developments

Postby Wordtrip » Thu Apr 17, 2003 9:46 pm

What we've got so far (update 5/22)

* reader's forums for general book discussion, and genre specific recommendations
* a book review and discussion system via forums
* writer's forums, for those of us who want to discuss the process and show off our work
* our first members give-away (see the bottom comment)
* 1st Grade-College forums for students and teachers

In the coming weeks and months we'll be setting up;

* a virtual book club, where you can get together with like minded readers and motivate each other to read that great book you've been waiting to read.
* virtual writer's groups, monitored and moderated private forums to help us develop as better writers and also give us deadlines to motivate us.
* Much Much Much more.

Please stay tuned for further developments. Thank you for your patience

Quote Box up and other fun stuff

Postby Wordtrip » Thu Apr 24, 2003 8:57 am

Ok, got a nifty little quote box on the front portal page now, we're working on the design aspect of things, and soon hope to have a few more features added. This will probably be in beta for a little while as we're hoping to implement the new phpBB v2.2 when it's out and ready. We will be backing up the posts regularly so when we make the switch all your postings aren't lost. Keep an eye out for the improvements.

We Now have Amazon linkage, so at the bottom of each post you can link to a book or other item at amazon.com and help us generate the money to pay for our hosting costs. If you see a book that interests you please click through and buy it.

Grand Opening Give-Away

Postby Wordtrip » Tue Apr 29, 2003 12:44 pm

OK, here's the deal.
When we hit 500 posts on the board AND have 100 members with posts, we'll give away a $25 amazon.com Gift Certificate to one member.
To be eligible all you have to do is be a member and have at least 5 valid posts.
Bumps and other posts with no purpose but to raise your post count will not be counted.
No funky randomizer will be used, I'll write your name on a slip of paper and toss it in a hat (or bowl or whatever) and randomly select a winner. Good luck, happy reading, writing, and posting.

Ok we've added something so you can see the last 10 threads posted to, from the main portal page. This should make it easier to keep track of the most active threads.
