December 7, 2018: Server Move Completed & An Apology
Posted by The Story Lover

Dragon

Folks,

The server move has been completed and the DNS propagation seems to have been completed as well. The issue with the Newest Chapters on the Fort Family Community Site has been resolved as well. 

Story posting may resume, or shall I say has resumed.

Somehow during the posting of Ruwen Rouhs German Story Madz ~ Schulzeit ~ (German) I inadvertently missed posting Kapitel 2 and Kapitel 15, those chapters have now been posted. I apologize for the error. Thanks to a wonderful and concerned reader C. for bringing the error to my attention so that it could be fixed.

I also want to thank Jeff P. for supplying the awesome image for my story Christmas On The Mountain. Don't forget to submit your Christmas Short Stories to Fred De Elf for the Christmas Short Story Event. He tells me that he has some very good ones for this year's event.

Happy Reading & Writing,

TSL

December 3, 2018: Heads up to the Fort Family readers, guests, and authors

Posted by AC

Once again, we will be doing upgrades to our services! (I know, this is becoming a bad habit!) Our server host has offered us an upgrade that is too good to pass up, so on Wednesday, December 5th the sites are going to be undergoing maintenance.

>>   From a reader and guest standpoint, you shouldn't see any problems - there is no anticipated downtime for the sites themselves. There is a slim possibility that you might see a glitch as the DNS servers update, but overall you shouldn't have any impact.

>> Authors, all we ask is that you hold off any posting on Wednesday and Thursday for sure - Friday should be safe, especially later in the day, but if you want to play it safe wait until late in the day Friday.

From all of us in the Fort Family and CSU Productions, I want to thank you for your support and patience as we work to give you the best service possible for your donation dollar.

Hugzz;

ACFan

Folks,

This site isn't moving, however, due to the linked stories and Newest Chapters and News Post being linked to the Community Site as well, I am also requesting that al posting be held off from Eleven PM CST Tuesday Night December 4th until late Friday afternoon.

Happy Reading,
