Congratulations to everyone featured and thanks to everyone who nominated!
Nominations for next month's featured stories are now open on the forums. The category is Fic-Trade Favorites. You can nominate here!
A Few Notes:
1. Tabbed indents aren't supported on e-fiction, which is the script that Lunaescence uses. This means that hitting "enter" and "tab" will not produce the result you're looking for. You can use the "p" tag, put a space between paragraphs, or use multiple "nbsp" to make a space that looks like the tab. If you want to make sure that your story is formatted correctly, there's a "Preview" button next to "Submit" in the story editor.
2. Save your work. Never trust a website with the only copy of your story. Save it in your documents, put it on a CD, USB memory stick, or external hard drive, or use an online backup like Dropbox or Google Docs. For those of you who aren't validated, please be aware that if a chapter is denied, the mods will delete it from the site, so you need to have your own copy of everything so you can edit and resubmit.
3. Contacting the mods is easier than you think. Seriously, we don't bite. Use any contact method on our profiles (including the "Contact Author" form) or send us a PM through the forums. Please refrain from asking a mod about the status of a story in the queue unless it's been there a couple weeks. Just because one chapter gets approved in a day doesn't mean that the next will because some moderators pick a day and go down the list, and others go through the queue randomly.
