Because I will be working tomorrow morning, and because the nomination posts will take a while to put up, I am going to begin posting them today. However, it is very likely that the posts will NOT be completed until tomorrow afternoon.

Please do not begin making nominations as soon as each post goes up, because there will be a special comment section for each subcategory. Give me a chance to enter all of those subcategories before you start to nominate.

Remember, all nominated stories must be hosted at the Many Paths to Tread Archive!

Have you made your four comments for the Comment Challenge yet?

Here is another reminder for those who want to participate in the Many Paths to Tread Comment Challenge--the Anniversary is this Saturday, July 27. When you have made your four comments, post a comment to THE ORIGINAL ANNOUNCEMENT POST. All comments should be made at the MPTT Archive.

As the Many Paths to Tread archive continues to grow, I am looking for someone to assist me as webmaster of the site. If you think you might be interested, please read the requirements of the position below, then email me at DawnFelagund@gmail.com with your relevant experiences with managing websites or working with creative communities. If you have any questions, please also email me.

Minimum Requirements
1. At a minimum, you should have basic HTML knowledge (text formatting, paragraphs, headings, lists, images, and links) to convert Word documents to HTML for posting to the website.

2. You should be available to check your email and the MPTT site daily. (Clearly, our mods and admins take time off but it's important that we communicate this with each other--see #3.)

3. You should be willing to communicate with me and the other mods/admins in order to ensure that the site is efficiently and professionally run.

4. Weekly time commitment varies. Many weeks, site maintenance will require less than an hour of your time per week. During events or emergencies (like the recent spam attack), you should expect to put in more time. You will work with me and the other site mods/admins to divide up responsibilities, but you should be willing to take on your share and step up during emergencies. If you expect to be unavailable for a time, you should communicate that to me and the other admins, but you should be dependable and consistently available for much of the year.

5. Ideally, you should have experience working with eFiction as an administrator and uploading files using CPanel. At a minimum, you should have an openness to learning more about HTML, CSS, eFiction, CPanel, and other tools as needed to manage the site. You will need to become very comfortable working with eFiction as both a user and an administrator.

Responsibilities
1. Checking the site daily to monitor new registrations, identify and correct misdirected chapters/stories, and monitor for spam or suspicious activity.

2. Checking the site daily for new character requests, contacting authors who have requested new characters, and updating the character list and story accordingly.

3. Responding to email inquiries from site users concerning issues such as lost passwords, problems posting stories or comments, or questions about how to use the archive tools, and assisting non-tech administrators with using the eFiction admin panel to perform tasks.

4. Backing up the database and performing routine site maintenance at least monthly.

5. Assisting as needed with special projects or emergencies, such as posting News announcements, uploading and posting banners, and managing spam.

Final Words
You will be working side-by-side with me to share the responsibilities above. You will not be expected to handle member complaints, make decisions on member conduct or rule violations, perform software updates, investigate bug reports, research or implement bug fixes, modify the eFiction software, adjust site settings, design site skins/layouts, or work directly with the MySQL database, unless you want to be involved with those tasks. Although I would appreciate any assistance you care to offer, I expect to continue handling those issues.

While you should have the minimum requirements, you do not necessarily need to have experience running an archive website. If you're interested in learning more about running a website, this would be a good position for you, as long as you're willing to put in the time to learn to manage the site. I am willing to teach you what you need to know, including eFiction, more advanced HTML, and CSS. If you have those skills already, that's obviously a plus, but more important is a willingness to learn and contribute to the management of our awesome and growing archive.

Again, if you're interested, or if you have any questions, please email me at DawnFelagund@gmail.com.

Next month will be the Second Anniversary of our Many Paths to Tread Archive!

In order to celebrate the occasion, we are asking our members to help us: We would like to top 2,000 stories by that date! We are currently at 1,404, so it is by no means an impossible goal!

Because of the MEFAs, we are experiencing an increase in guest visitors to the site, as they are coming to read those stories which have been nominated from our archive. It would be very nice if some of them were enticed to stay a while and read some of the other fine pieces archived at MPTT, and a wide variety of stories will help with that!

So if you've been meaning to upload some new stories (or old ones) there, by all means consider this a spur to do so! And it's a good time to tell your friends about our nifty and friendly archive!

On July 27, 2009 Many Paths to Tread ...

Went online. In that time, we have grown to 90 members and more than 1,000 stories! The mods, Cathleen, Dawn Felagund, Dreamflower and Pearl Took would like to thank all of our members for their enthusiasm and support! We hope that our archive will continue to grow and thrive over the years, and that we will have many more stories to share with the world.

To celebrate, we have added a few new features to our archive. You will notice that we now have a counter on our home page, as well as a feature that will show which members are online at any given time. We have also expanded the Most Recent stories sidebar, and have added a third skin choice for your viewing of the archive. In addition to that, we have also added a new category: Art Gallery! That's right! You may now display photos of your fan art here at Many Paths to Tread! You are still allowed to post images within the body of your stories as illustrations. But now you may display other art that you have created, including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, photomanips, needlework, sculpture, collage, mixed media, and other created items!


Take a few minutes to explore our new "bells and whistles"!
