Hello all and welcome to the new LoM!
To facilitate both the archiving and the seaching of the archive, we have created an automated version of the LoM and we are in the process of reposting all the fics in the old hand-managed site. This is going to take some time to complete - meanwhile, we appreciate your patience and thank your suggestions.
The automating DOES NOT mean that we are giving OPEN ACCESS to the archive - submissions are still to be sent to the email@example.com address. However, you can register as a reader and add comments to the fics, build your list of favorites, etc. If you are already introduced as an author by us, don't register - contact us and we'll send you an email for you to change your password and become a full member.
In case you are curious, the updating priorities are as follows:
1st: Recently submitted fics - whatever lands in our inbox has top priority.
2nd: Related fics - if a recently submitted fic has prequels or sequels already in the archive, we will give those fics priority over others
3rd: Alphabetic order of file name, which roughly corresponds to alphabetic order of titles, safe for a few exceptions where we had to change file names to avoid confusion with other files.
A couple of notes to authors: italics, bold and the likes are now possible in the body of the text. We are formatting the older fics for you, but please feel free to send in the new files with tags, if you have them in that way.
If you detect something that is not correct in one of your old fics, please let us know and we'll gladly correct it. Much of the formatting was done automatically and some errors may have ensued. In other cases, well... we are all human and therefore prone to error. ;)
We hope that you enjoy the new LoM! Please remember that we are still working on it - not just introducing stories, and that we welcome suggestions (but no shouting or we may cry. ;) )
All the best,
The LoM staff
