m3m Suggest you hold off giving us ebooks for now. The mods are still working through all the things that have gone wrong and gradually some are coming back. If you change your programme to suit it could need changing again. Also summoning is missing so hope you read this. ????

HaHa, you're being picky because you aren't a special unsummonable anymore  :P

Also, am I the only one with this problem, or do you guy also totally fail to see the newest monthly contest, the one with the story generator.
It's not appearing anywhere and last time I went to it I had to go search in my own messages to find it.

Nora, I replied there:
Nora, due to the forum problems ( >:( ) xia can't create sub-sections, so this month's threads are on the main "Monthly Writing Contest" section (down in the page, after all the monthly sections)


gradually some are coming back.
Where have you seen this? I didn't see anything come back...

it's pretty easy to do a "if everything's working right, do it this way.  if everything's still wonky, do it the other way!"

hrm.  it's just a matter of finding time now.

Nora, I can't remember now, but some things that hadn't worked seemed to return, maybe hyperlink although that may have just been me getting it right for once. :-[

You're quite right. Sorry Nora, I think I'm going to hibernate for a  bit.  ;)
