We use a module called AuthorList here - makes a page for each author and collates some work etc.

Currently, it only sorts by anything but Alphabetical order. I've brought the bug up in supportforums for the software and it will likely be attended to soon.


I'm working on adding a legal disclaimer popup. Was anyone interested in a shoutbox or similar?

My apologies - somehow I disabled the publishing flag.
So the "Default author posts as published" trick I set up stopped working.

My bad.

All your articles are still present, not poofed into ether.
Once logged in, you should see the link at the top that says "all articles/lost articles".

You can click on it, and browse through categories to find your missing chapter/story.

Then edit it, flip on published (and/or move it to the correct category) and it will show up in the Author's List. You should only be able to see your own unpublished stories.
This is a permanent feature - if you want to work on a story onsite you are welcome to leave it unpublished till such time as you feel it is matured.

I hit the publish flag on a bunch of the stories. Some folks had started entering dates /featuring articles to try and force them to appear - please remove the dates to cause your article to show up again. My sincerest apologies for the extra work caused. Please let me know next time something like this goes wrong.

Thanks much for the bug report, Kerrik.

Site will remain at pokegirls.org.
Transfer process has been started, and should complete in a few days and a rubber stamp at moniker & the admin.

I haven't had a chance to look at the table format that drupal has the stories in yet. That's a long term thing and will require a fair amount of work on my part. My intent is to preserve the works done by authors who've grown out of touch with the community and don't visit as often as once they did.

When the new site comes up (it will replace the old one) folks should sign up. Authors will need to request authorship privileges. There's a bit of administrative work on my end moving registered user to be an author, & setting security.

The new interface is fairly straight forward. Authors have access to their own works, and to add posts to the blog. Authors should have no trouble editing old chapters.
You'll have to create a book under your own section before you can add chapters to it.
And a chapter that is not assigned to a book will 'float' attached to the blog (You can edit it and assign it to the appropriate book). See the tutorials on the side of the page.

If you have any questions use the contact form (on the new site) and I'll get right with you.

Edit:
The old pokegirls site SQL exceeded PHPmyadmin's ability to export. I do not have access to old stories except as a site dump. At this juncture, I will wait to see what authors are going to upload fresh. After that I will (as personal time permits) begin importing author data for authors who haven't had time.
Maintenance is done - let me know what you feel is missing and I will do my best to address it.

Edit 5/7/2013: restructured permissions. You shouldn't notice any difference, if you do contact me.
