Hello fellow humans (and occasional feline companions), my name is Tyler Harvey, and I’m happy to say that I’ve adopted eFiction!
Who Are You?
My name is Tyler Harvey, and I run a small Canadian web-based business called Sidular. I also use Sidular as my alias in multiple online communities and services, so it’s kinda my nickname now, too. We operate the oldest PlayStation news website in the world, as well as a decade-old website hosting network. Soon, I intend to launch my own video game design and development studio, with a heavy focus on the MMORPG genre of games. I’m also a writer, freelance mostly, and run my own eFiction website that I mostly just use as an archive for some of my fan fictions. No, I won’t tell you what it is, since they’re honestly rather embarrassing… but that’s not the point. The point, is I love writing, and I love creating stories. All in all, I just love creating. Whether it’s video games, websites, or stories. I love being able to create new things, or in the case of eFiction, adopt and expand upon existing things.

Future of eFiction
Let me just be super upfront and direct here, since I know many of you are curious.
I’m a strong believer and supporter of open source projects, so I can happily say that eFiction will always be open source, entirely free, with full user control and customization in mind. Every single feature will be available for free, and eFiction will never have a paid “Pro” version. However, that isn’t to say that I don’t plan on making some changes. As for what those changes entail, I can’t quite say. At least not yet. What I will say, is Artphilia is fully aware of my vision for eFiction moving forward, and seems to be quite happy with my suggested changes and improvements.
While I doubt I will be able to provide actual content or feature updates to the main software for quite some time, I will at the very least make this website more accessible and presentable. I also intend to have eFiction included on various script auto installers, such as Softaculous, and work with web hosting providers to get an eFiction landing page, or to otherwise ensure compatibility with their network.
All in all, I’ve got big plans for eFiction, and really can’t wait to show you all what I’ve got in store.
Stay tuned for future updates. And of course if you should have any questions, feel free to reach out over on our Forums, or as a response to this article. I know this introduction of mine was rather short, so I hope you forgive me for that. I’m honestly just really excited to be able to take over this project, and can’t wait for you all to see what I’ve got planned!
