Just a short note to let you know that new genres have been added. The list of fic genres had not been updated in some time (possibly forever). The new additions came from a request in the suggestion box (brought forth from discussion on the Shoutbox) because the connotations attached to some older fandom terms has changed. We also added a few because, well, we just needed them.
The addition of new genres does not mean that existing ones have been removed or changed. I repeat, no existing genres have been deleted or modified. They're all still there. We've just added new ones, to give writer's more options for labelling/sorting their fic. If the new genres are utilised, that will also make it easier for readers to search for more specific criteria.
The new genre options are as follows: Dark, Humor, Lighthearted, Erotica, Hurt/Comfort, Vignette.

A New Beginning... (Or Maybe not)
4/1/16 Edit: Well, I guess our switch to an all Rangel site didn't go over as planned... April Fools! Of course the jig is up and it was all a joke. We know we put all this up before April 1 in the USA, where the majority of our members live. However, don't forget that 2 of our mods are Australian, and since it was April 1 for them, we technically weren't cheating .
Thanks to all our members for playing along. We got some themed submissions, which was awesome and unexpected, and we had many lurky members comment and shout about our "new theme". We hope to keep hearing from you! Don't keep quiet until next year when we make this place a Clem/Teeth the loan shark archive .
An enormous thank you goes to javajunkie247, who played along with our insane...

Shoutbox Odds and Ends
Just a quick note to keep you all informed without clogging up the shoutbox. Speaking of the shoutbox, a suggestion was added recently about it, and it prompted me to add a couple new features, and finally fix some glitches that had been around for a while.
First, the fixes:
- Links wouldn't work properly if they were directly followed by punctuation (e.g. http://dark-solace.org/elysian/viewstory.php?sid=5285.) or if they had more than one instance of http:// within them (e.g. http://web.archive.org/web/20080814153437/http://www.dark-solace.org/elysian/). These should no longer be an issue.
- Multiple presses of the shout button frequently resulted in duplicate shouts. Some new behind the scenes code should now remedy this.
Now, the new items:
- If you're reading on the shout archive page, you can now shout directly from there instead of having to click back to the home page. You'll see the shout text input at the top of the page.
- If you want to catch up...
