Welcome Board - Interim

Postby snaps » Mon Jan 23, 2012 9:45 pm

[NB to Members: Remarks highlighted in RED are temporary.

This is just a protype for how the eventual ‘sticky’ might look when it is finalised. Feel free to post comments, suggestions etc for now. The intention is that the finalised Welcome notice will appear at the top of the Board listings, and will only be used for the Moderators to communicate with members.

If you are already an active Member of the Forum, then please feel free to upload and/or transfer your new or existing work to this board. Read these notes and send me a mail indicating where you would like it including in the Index. This way it won’t matter when you post, your work will not be ‘buried’ by time, as there will be a perma-link to your work here. I will be uploading some material from inactive past Contributors to test the system here. I will also use some of mine, so don’t think I’m just shamelessly self-promoting or that I’ve forgotten you! Please help out as I will be very busy with work from Tuesday – Thursday this week, it may take me a while to catch-up here].




Hello and Welcome!…… to the Fan-Fiction and Fan-Art Board of the Fucking Amal/ Show Me Love (FA/SML) website.

Our major objective is to draw together, the most comprehensive collection of FA/SML fan-fic and fan-art material, from all sources on the internet, hosted on this board for your entertainment.

A second objective is to keep alive the memory and renewed interest in FA/SML, through positive encouragment of new fan-fiction and fan-art from existing, and potential New Members.

The main purpose of this Notice is to provide you with an Index of Contents. It will also have ‘clickable links’: just hover and click on the link and it should open out the item in a new webpage. The aim is to give you an easy way to navigate your way around the threads and postings.

UPDATES AND NEWS

This space will be used to notify you of any recent additions, major revisions etc. with links to items of interest. Our hope is to keep it regularly updated.

[Illustration for Members. I will try to contact ‘Ridiculous Mavis’ author of the highly-rated ‘Travelled So Far’ posted on fanfiction.net Mavis is better known as ‘Fran’ who I don’t think is a member here, but hosted her own excellent FA/SML website when in her teens, and I beleive she lives but a short distance from me.]
