Post of the Month Winner Announced!
May 25, 2015 - 12:47 AM - by Nimlos
Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Another great selection of posts kept our judges busy this month. It's a real pleasure to have so many great posts to read - and to see the PotM contest still going strong.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for April 2015 is ... ItsaVerb!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate ItsaVerb for this exemplary work.

ItsaVerb manages to do something in this post that's not always easy to do - drawing an otherwise seemingly normal person into the world of horror. If horror in its truest form is the malignant intruding on the mundane, we see it here, as Jeff struggles to piece together what he's seen, all while trying to convince himself it couldn't have been. It's a taut piece of writing with a nice flow.

The other nominations for April 2015 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for May is going on even as you read this. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of May.

Announcing a top-level game forum group that includes all FATE games!
May 20, 2015 - 10:15 AM - by Birched
Dear FATE-lovers,

No longer shall you be relegated to the 'Other' category of game forums! The top-level 'Dresden' gaming forum has been expanded to include all FATE games.

Please let me know if:
1. You find remnants of the old 'Dresden' designation that should be changed to be more inclusive.
2. You have or know of a game in the 'Other' category that should be moved to 'FATE'.

Go get your FATE on!


P.S. Due to an unresolved bug with CS folder management when folders are nested too deeply, I am going to leave all FATE games (including the Dresden games that were originally in that category) in the main tier of that forum rather than put them in subcategories.

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

We open up a new year of the Post of the Month contest with another great field of posts - including a few from some new entrants to the contest.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for March 2015 is ... goatmeal!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate goatmeal for this exemplary work.

This post does a bit of everything, and does it all well. It develops the character, it moves the story, it provides depth to the world in the form of the tiny details that can make all the difference between a world that feels real and one that feels like a boxed set. The dialog is simple and organic, entirely believable.

The other nominations for March 2015 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for April is going on even as you read this. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of April.
Site Inaccessibility Issue Sunday April 12
Apr 12, 2015 - 11:38 PM - by Birched
Hi all,

There was a problem today with accessing the site for most users. The problem was that our security certificate expired, and thus put our modern more security conscious browsers in a panic. In the past, I have been able to get new certificates very quickly when there were issues; today, that was not the case. Unfortunately, the issuing authority had a bad day, and apparently was mistakenly rejecting certificates and at the same time not noticing that it was doing so; for this reason, it took some time to address the problem.

TL;DR The site is working now, and I've made some calendar notes that will hopefully mean that I deal with this with enough advance notice in the future that things like bad days for the issuer remain their problem, and do not become ours again.

WINNER: Easter Egg Hunt/Bunny, 2015
Apr 08, 2015 - 8:07 PM - by dirkoth
We have a winner!

We are happy to announce that Goplayer7 is this year's winner of the "Easter Bunny Hunt". Go found all twelve hidden eggs, secreted away by that wascally wabbit, and then put the clues together to figure out that this year's bunny was none other than Arucard!

Goplayer7 will earn a prestigious graphic image to commemorate his achievement as the 2015 Easter Bunny Hunt Winner, as well as a small prize hand-picked by the site staff.

For those who are curious, here are the locations of the hidden eggs. You'd best look soon, before the staff comes by to clean them up, and return the place to normal. One year, we left an egg out until September, and by that time, it smelled worse than Arucard's lunchbox.
