Heh, don't so I didn't warn you.

First, please don't make any bug reports at this time. Nothing works. Therefore, bug reports are superfluous.

Now at this point, you may be freaking out. How can I comment on someone's profile? How do I create novels? I can't see who's in chat!?

Go drink some tea, sit back, enjoy a game of badminton, then come back.

Almost every feature that was a part of the old YWS will be once again part of YWS: Apollo. Also, no data has been lost. All of your profile comments are in the database, just waiting to be read again.

So here's the timeline of how things will go...

By January: New literary works area and new storybooks area.

By mid-January: Advanced profiles will return, meaning comments on profiles will be back. At this time, blogs will also return, but as part of profiles.

By February: New dashboard and clubs.


So there you have it. By February, everything you know and love will be back, but it'll be working better and looking nicer.

With that said, please expect stuff to change unexpectedly. This is a huge change, and stuff will change randomly. I would have preferred to do all this over time and only release when it was ready, but the constant site problems kind of ruined that.

However, I do hope you like the new design a lot. Expect it to only get better.

It looks nice and blue to me, Nate! As a writers' forum I'm sure we're all just happy to have the literary works back (and storybooks :D). Have a good Christmas and don't work too hard!

The site looks great, Nate. And I'm looking forward to all the awesome changes you've got in store for us.

Now go sleep. *swings pocket-watch*

And btw, Merry Christmas and thanks a lot for the present! :smt114

It's looking great, Nate! Lovely and Blue like me. Very stylish.

I feel like a newbie again, being lost. I like that though. I was happy when I found it ^_^

Despite the warning and previews I still did a double-take when I saw the new layout xD But, while it's a little scary, it's also very exciting and this modern look already feels more accessible somehow. Plus, seeing storybooks as a big black tab just makes me go all tingly.
Go Gargoyles!

New to the site? Then check out The Buddy System!

Spiffing. Very odd, but sleek. I like it. Thanks for all the hard-work, can't wait to see the rest of the site! :)

It looks awesome. New, alien, but awesome. I'm sure we'll all settle in and get used to the new feel soon enough. :D

I love it, Nate. It's so BLUE. Wish the 'like' button was back just so I could like this thread. But we survived a long time without it.

Go enjoy Christmas and stop working.

I do like blue its my favorite color, but taking into consideration of I still can't post a few stories I have that I been meaning to, I have to redo some sceduling. Wish me luck.
