Making dues is not one of the options that we are discussing. This is a place to have fun and we don't want to have any kind of compulsion at all about anything!

I'm glad to hear that :) I'll gladly donate what I can, but dues are hard for some people.

I'll add my thanks to everyone else's. I was awfully impressed that you and the moderators were able to get this new site up and running so quickly, Marg. If you had already been mulling over the possibility, that helps explain how you were able to do it. Thank goodness! I'm so, so, so glad the moderators now have full control of the site. With a site like this, it's important that the people who own and operate it genuinely love historical fiction and care that the site functions properly. It's sad to lose all the old posts, but it makes so much difference to have the active moderators in full control, so in the end, I think we are all much better off.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

Thanks for filling us in on what happened. I am so happy to be back with you all. It felt awful to be cut off without any explanation or directions to find anybody. So glad to be back!! :D

Just PM'd Eigon (glad you're here!) and Andromeda and Stevent. Haven't tried out the post board since my Rosamund Clifford post - which has disappeared!
