The new version of Lit.Org is getting close! Several features are ready to go: Forums, Groups (You'll be able to create public or private groups for your own use!) and the basic framework for managing your writing are all mostly done. There's a handful of other features to get done for the new version and then some testing and I'll be ready to start letting people take a poke at it.

As a developer, I'm a fan of doing things in stages when launching something like this. My plan to migrate the site over to the new version is to introduce a few of the new planned features. The new site will launch with the same features we have not (mostly) along with a few new ones. Then we'll just keep adding things and trying things. We'll keep what works and punt what doesn't.

The most important thing for members to do right now is to update your email address so it's accurate. When I import users into the new system we'll be sending verification emails and further instructions. I'll be sending out some basic instructions to everyone via email in the next few days.

Want to help out? Send me your suggestions. Do we need some new categories? What about forum categories? Anything you don't want? Anything we need to get rid of?

I'd like to thank everyone's kind words and excitement about the new site. I can't wait to show it to you!

A category for the sonnet might be nice.

A Sonnet category sounds good. I'll add that for sure. The good news is, the new system will make it easy to add categories. We won't be limited in that area at all.

I've tried several times to add my email address to my profile but it refuses to update. What can I do about that?

Go Chris!
In year's past, we always had huge flurry of activity on the site with our various threads. This hasn't been happening lately, I believe because new members aren't familiar with it.

I believe that if you make it a feature once again...each week or month with challenges on various topics, it will surely increase the number of hits on the site.

Also, why not a "best" poem of the week on a theme posted by members themselves...I've seen this done with great success on other sites...for members. seem to be doing great on improving the site without any advice from me or anyone else...just thought I throw it in there!

awhippingflame, That usually only happens if you forget to enter your password. For security, any updates to that page require your password again. I didn't make that error very clear either.

Great ideas! I've got some of that stuff already in the works.
