New Forum Software

New Forum Software

Dear Community,

as you have surely noticed, we have switched to a brand new forum software to make it easier for us and our possible successor team. The SMF Forum was spammed to a degree that we could hardly manage. I was searching for a long time, thought about different options and finally found the possibility to install a forum software via WordPress and to take over the old forum completely.

Your user accounts have been taken over, but it is possible that you will have to get a new password sent to you to log in successfully.

New registrations should also be possible, if I have made the settings correctly.

Now I hope that we will find a successor that will continue and modernize eFiction as an ‘Open Source’ project in the sense of the community, so that we all will still have a lot of fun with the script and can maintain our own archives without being dependent on the giants of the scene like fanfiction.net and archiveofourown.org. 🙂

Stay creative!

We are still here!

We are so terribly sorry for the lack of news and updates around the website and eFiction itself. Real life is keeping us pretty busy right now. The forum has become a huge problem concerning spammers and we are looking for a alternative solution to keep up the support of the current stable version. Thanks for your patience with us! We haven’t given up on eFi5, but we know that the progress is very slow at the moment. If there is someone else who loves and knows PHP and everything that comes with coding, let us know! Help would be awesome!

Well, where do I begin? November was a bad month for me. On November 1st my mom passed away at age 74. Two weeks later I had my exams nevertheless. You can imagine how hard this month was for me and my family. Revamping the site felt like a therapy. December wasn’t that much better, I was still deeply sad about my loss.
In January I had a terrible accident and crushed my left knee. I was in surgery and now I’m still recovering. The doctors said it would take 3 to 6 months until I’m my old self again.
Sheepy and our two sons are taking good care of me. Thank God! But you can imagine that there was no time for coding since November. Sheepy did not forget about eFiction at all! Neither did I. I just wanted you guys to know what was going on in our lifes.
