Glad to hear it. I was hoping that it would be rescued.
Thank you.

OK. Had just joined WABD and uploaded 2 new poems for publication, which appear to have been lost in the transfer process. Trying to log back in with old and new details, but don't seem able to. Could someone kindly help an 'oldie' member?

Kat (remember me?)

Kat, you must already be logged in or else you couldn't post a forum message!

Also, kats, I've just looked and you have two submissions in draft and you are currently editing one so I guess that means you have successfully logged in and found your work?

Note: It also says you are online on these forums so yes, you are logged in.

NOTE: It might be best to delete your cookies and history for UKA & WABD websites as they might be causing conflicts due to the domain changes (this applies to ALL users).

Yes, I seem to have caught up with myself. Getting used to the old/new/old UKA again. Bear with me. :^)

I like the new UKA site it seems easy to use, like many I have struggled to embrace the WABD format, but happy to be part of anything going forward as much as I can, including MOD if needed. Whatever it takes to keep the ink flowing. Keith

@ gothicman: Yes, unfortunately the world has moved on in a lot of ways and as you say, Facebook has a big draw. Factor in other outlets now like WattPad (which I've looked at and decided I couldn't get on with) and it's clear UKA (and ABCTales, which I was frankly amazed to discover is still going) have serious competition and not everyone is going to have as much reason as I have/had to carry on hovering around the periphery. Beyond everything I mentioned before, Andrea (and Richard, actually) also helped to set me on my current career trajectory. Inadvertent it may have been, but without that opportunity (and indeed, encouragement in Andrea's case) I wouldn't be where I am today - skint, starving, cold, and wishing that self-employment didn't suck so much. ;-D
But yeah, in the final analysis I could never turn my back entirely on this place because of the people and the feelings they create. You won't find that on FB or in any of the mostly superficial, bright and shiny (or shite and briny, depending on your POV) places.

Now that is spooky, Sweety.  The second line is exactly what I said to my girlfriend after coming home from the pub.  The first line is how she replied to me.  We created some wonderful memories together that night.  *sigh*

I think the present format seems to be fine. But even if it isn't, I think it's important to stop making these radical changes and get back to what matters – submitting work, reading it and commenting on it. My fear is that people will begin to get bored with what comes across as navel-gazing and move off to pastures new. The nuts and bolts of the site don't really matter all that much. We need a settled period of consolidation now, no more changes please!

Unless I'm pressing all the wrong buttons, which is perfectly possible, the option to continue editing your story while it's stored prior to publication seems to have disappeared. I normally use that quite a lot. I hope we're getting it back again.

Thanks.
