we are happy to announce that we have completed our latest round of updates. As many of you may have noticed, we have been busy this month making some upgrades and fixes to several of our existing features:
1. Guestbook Fixes:
We have recently been plagued with an endless amount of spam in our pro member guestbooks. We have taken several measures to avoid this from happening in the future. We have also added additional tools like proper pagination, multi-delete capabilities and a 'delete all' function for those with too much spam to delete manually. We are happy to say this problem will now be a thing of the past!2. Fixed Critiques:
Many members have experienced problems with their critiques turning off automatically. Thanks to the persistence of our members, we have identified the glitch and corrected it. You should no longer experience any issues with your critiques.3. Added Daily Reviewers List:
You may have noticed that we have added a new top reviewers list on the homepage. This new list will calculate the top reviewers on a daily basis so all members will have an equal chance to be featured on the homepage each day!4. Enhanced Ranking Lists:
Our 'poetry movers and shakers' page houses 14 of our official lists. These have been enhanced and now list the top 50 poets, poems, writers, columns etc... instead of the top 10. We have also added a top 50 reviewers list which showcases the overall top reviewers (of all time). 5. Upgraded Self-Promos:
We have decided to make the self-promos tool FREE for all members. Basic (free) members may post 3 free promos every day while PRO members may post up to 5 free promos a day. Leave your shame at the door and start advertising yourself: http://www.writers-network.com/member.cgi?do=promos6. Upgraded The Ad Tool:
Our previous website advertising tool has been revamped into our new 'Sponsored Ads' tool. This is a great tool that will allow you to advertise your writing, your W-N profile site or an outside website. Each ad created will be placed on a special ad page PLUS all ads will be rotated around the website, members area and profile pages in various areas (look for "Sponsored Ads" text). You may create ads using points - the higher your bid, the more your ad will display and the better chances you have of getting extra reads! We hope you enjoy this great new advertising tool: http://www.writers-network.com/member.cgi?do=ads 7. New PRO Members Directory:
All PRO members will now be featured on a special page accessible from our homepage: http://www.writers-network.com/index.cgi?do=promember
Members will be listed with picture, username, hometown and number of entries. 8. New Profile Designs:
We have added 5 new profile designs to the template list and will continue adding more regularly. The new templates are: Beautiful Places 1 (PRO Only), Beautiful Places 2 (PRO Only), Border Designs 14 (PRO Only), Border Designs 15, and Flower Power 7.
NOTE: We also have a brand new writing contest that offers a great opportunity to be published on our website: http://www.writers-network.com/Contest/columns/contest01.html
Don't forget to check out the writing challenges in the forum as well.
We have an exciting list of long awaited upgrades that we are working on so stay tuned for more!
