Happy June, everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your summer!

Because the forums were down, we will not have any featured stories for this month. Instead, the featured themes for June will now be the featured themes for July. That means we will still be accepting nominations for stories by non-prolific authors and for collaborative works. Please submit your nominations here.

In addition, we have extended the deadlines for the two monthly challenges and the two fic trades. You can read more about the monthly challenges here and the two fic trades here and here.

And now for a few points of interest!

1.) We have a zero-tolerance policy in regards to harassment. Flaming, trolling, bashing, and harassing other members has no place here on Lunaescence. We are not hesitant to ban members who are hurtful to others.

2.) If you are not validated, please try to keep your amount of submissions to no more than 3 at a time. We realized that it is very time-consuming when we have to go through several stories from one author with the same kinds of errors and delete them all. Im sure it is equally unpleasant for an author to receive an abundance of denial letters all listing the same problems. This is especially suggested to those who are posting here for the first time since you may not be familiar with our standards.

3.) Finally, we are no longer accepting requests for moderator applications. For those who have received the application, please remember that your response is due June 4. If you have yet to receive an application because you are not a validated author, then we will be contacting you soon and will give you an extension if you meet the requirements for author validation. Thank you to everyone who applied!

Edit by KS: We have some new warnings. Read about them here.
Edit by KS (again): Since this seems to be an issue... Please only submit one chapter per story at a time and no more than three total.


Thanks for re-linking, SSP.

Hurray! The Forum's up again! ^^

I've asked this in the Question thread as well, but I'll ask it here too:
How long has the deadline been extended (When is the new deadline)?

IGNORE what I just asked!

I apparently don't know what month it is right now xD

So, totally random and completely unrelated and blah, but I just noticed that the featured stories never got switched over? (Like the ones with blue ribbons are still the featured stories from April rather than May.)

Fixed. I know exactly what happened. They're usually switched over after the forum posts and announcement are made, but I have some issues with my internet connection in high wind or rain. It took me quite some time to get things posted that night, and it quit on me for a time after the announcement. By the time I got it restarted, I forgot to switch them over.

The Forum and I have some serious trouble with each other, so I hope you don't mind if I ask my question here, but as far as moderator selections go, you've only sent out the one e-mail so far, right? And was your last edit directed to invalidated authors, or everyone, Kerrigan Sheehen?
