ANNOUNCING: RestrictedSection v 2.0!  
The old version of the site was great...but. There were a number of issues and things we wanted to work better, so that's one of the things we've been working on for some time now. So - TADA! Welcome to version 2.0! Here are the new things you should know about:

  • You will need to re-register for the stories. Your review board login information will still work, but in order to access the stories, you will need to set up a new account. The link to register is right here: Registration Page, and you can also find it in the top right corner when you enter the site. We know this is annoying, but please bear with us - really the only way we could fix all those login problems was to build a brand new system.
  • Now, instead of just browsing by author, you can find stories by their title or the date they were uploaded.
  • The search engine has been improved, with a few extra features - for example, put 'f/f' in the 'include pairings' box and 'm/f, m/m' in the 'exclude pairings box' for a femmeslash search, etc.
  • You can also customize how the site runs for you. At the bottom, click the 'profile' link and scroll down - you can change how the site looks for you, what additional information you want in a search, and how often the disclaimer comes up.
  • Our recreational discussion board, Buckbeak is a Great Ugly Brute, is also a lot easier to get to - just click 'Discussion Boards' at the bottom.
  • You'll notice that when you click on either 'Stories by Author' or 'by Title,' you will be taken to a random letter of the alphabet. This is just to make things a bit more interesting - you can then click on any letter you want as this only happens once a session.

  • As for those who have submitted stories but don't see them on the site - give us a few days before you email us about it. We've got a backlog of a little over a month to upload, so it might be up to a week before we get all of them up.

    If you have any questions about the new site, feel free to email us at email us and we'll help you out. ;) And I'd also like to say THANK YOU to everyone who donated their time to get the new site up and running, especially my zorac. Didn't he do a brilliant job?

    I hope you like what we've done to the site - thanks again for reading!
    I feel: pleasedpleased

    It looks fantasic. I was purring at it earlier today. I really like the random jump (I used to have the "A" authors memorised). And searching by title is fun. I'm so grateful That Primer to the Dark Arts has been cleaned up. It seems to move faster, too, and the design is more polished. Very nice work.

    It looks lovely - what a nice surprise to find everything so neat and navigable!

    What I really came by for, though, was to poke you gently ;) as I know that e-mail can go astray so easily. Did you receive an e-mail from argentmarble @ yahoo.com regarding The Witching Hour? I'm happy to resend, if it's been lost. Thanks!

    Umm, no, I surely didn't. Please resend.
