Rosey, thanks for writing this up! It's fantastic :)

I've gone ahead and made a prominent link to it in the sidebar. That should help people with the disorientation.

Regarding portfolios, those will definitely be coming back. At least by the ides of January (the 15th), if not before then.

Aloha- Edited to make it a bit clearer! The mid-January date is for "advanced portfolios", which includes a whole bunch of stuff. :)

And Nate- Not a problem at all! I can't take all the credit, though. Charlie helped me a lot.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

Hudz- I know it's very different, but chances are, you'll get used to it. :) And, it's pretty fun being able to say "on the old YWS, it was like this!" once you get enough people who don't remember the old layout.

Ahh, the old layout. Now I can officially say that I've seen something similar. xD

Good job, Rosey (and Charlie-who-helped-Rosey-a-lot)! I'm all excited now. :3
Guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurl.

That sounds good. I was worried about the portfolios, because lately I'd had to hunt down my old work, but mid January isn't far ahead. I'm looking forward to the old stuff coming back and maybe in the future, a new WFP.

One question though. Did old PMs get deleted, if there were too many? I've got all the PMs I've been sent sat safely in my inbox, but all the PMs I sent myself before May 2011 have completely disappeared. They're even gone from the message history of my Inbox PMs. I most definitely did not have up to 500 messages in the Sent folder, let alone 5000.

I'm loving quick reply. No points = post as many works as you want. Still review though. Lot's of reviewing!

What about putting literary works on a reading list? I've been putting every storybook I'm in on my reading list so I wouldn't forget about them.

WE NEED POINTS BACK! That's what's kept the site secure and NOT messed up and unproductive like all the other sites! PLEASE bring them back! For the good of YWS! I fear for our stability...

PS: Please tell me its back.... :(

Fang- You should be able to see your current reading list in Dashboard, but we're not sure when the ability to add things to the reading list will return. :)

Shadow- Nate's working as fast as he can! They will return, but we don't know when. ^^

Yeah, I know. It's just I think that points should have a higher precedence...it's just my opinion in the end, but I think it's just important to the productivity of the site...

Anyways, Nate, thanks for keeping everything going, and good luck on the rest of everything!
