We have moved to a new site!

This site will remain open only so you can copy anything you need, such as critques. Do so quickly because the old Forward Motion boards will soon disappear.

Are you ready for the new site? You must create a new login, but the chat login will remain the same as here for now. Click here to join us at the new

Forward Motion for Writers

See you there!

Yes, we are about to make a BIG change in the site. In about a week we will be moving to an entirely new system and not long afterwards, these boards will disappear forever. In a few days, you’ll be given a link to the new location where you will have to register and everyone will start over. The boards will be nearly the same (by name), but they are empty. We might copy and paste a few of the important posts over, but for the most part, this is a completely fresh start for Forward Motion.

If there is anything on these boards that you want copies of (critiques of your stories, 2YN material), you must make those copies now!

We cannot guarantee that the material on these boards will be available later.
For the moment, chat will remain pretty much as it is, but expect changes there in the near future as well.

So, we’re preparing for a new adventure! This should be fun!

Wow! That's going to be a big change. What kind of differences will there be? I'm giving a BTS class next month, and I coded in tags for it. Is that still going to be the same?

Linda, the new site uses bbs code. (My earlier statement was incorrect, so I've edited)

I was about to answer myself. Yeah, that's one of the good things that will make it easier to just copy some of the stuff from here. If it's your post, you can edit to get the code and then copy it out.

Curious question: What's prompting the change?

Can't wait to see what happens.
Now to go store my score for the submission contest. :>

Oh, good point. I need to back-up the current tallies in the Indie "No Fear" Challenge. Thanks for the reminder!

It's been a change in the making for some time based upon requests by numerous site members for a more modern system, but Tiger Tech's switch to a more modern version of PHP seems to be the factor driving the change at this time. This site, as configured, has some troubles with the newer version.

Would that account for some minor peculiarities I've experienced while typing such as the cursor not showing where I place it, but the next letter appearing anyway? Hasn't happened elsewhere.

No idea, Jim, but I'd guess probably not.

No. The site is set right back to where it was. There is no change in the site at all. I would guess that would be a problem on your end.

The easy way to copy your threads is to use the 'printer friendly' link which is right next to post when you read a thread. It will open up in a new window. Instead of printing that material, simply copy and paste into your own document file.

Probably a stupid question, but how is the new site information going to be distributed?

Will there be any change to the url?

The url will be the same or we will do a redirect to it if we need to. You'll still get there from here.

So... what do we need to do? I'm a little confused at the moment. (Or are instructions forthcoming?)

If you haven't been there yet, check the moderator board for more instructions.
