@Ginger, ever see the Twilight Zone episode, A Thing about Machines? wink

Joyce (7/3 01:18pm): Happy birthdays to chanels and Dark Mistress! cheers
Ginger (7/3 09:00am): @pfeifferpack yesterday was an epic one; it was like every machine I touched from the washing machine to my computer had a personal grudge against me. And any Canada attack would be inadvertent. I love Canada!
pfeifferpack (7/3 05:23am): Ginger please don't point at Canada! LOL. I've had days like that myself.
pfeifferpack (7/3 05:22am): partyHappy birthday to chanels and Dark Mistress! Hoping your special day is brilliant start to end. May the year to come bless you with all you most want and all you most need.
Ginger (7/3 03:00am): Thanks or the heads up, folks. I kept getting error messages so I didn't think they had posted. You know the day Buffy had in 'Life Serial?' That was me. Today. *Headslap Anyway, it's all fixed now. Either that or I've just launched missiles at Canada or something. :-/
emilise (7/3 02:24am): @Ginger looks like you just posted 8 times in a row!
Ginger (7/3 01:29am): Is anyone else experiencing trouble posting? I keep getting a message about a SQL error. Is it just me? Totally possible. Nothing technical seems to be working for me these days. :-/
Angelsheart1 (7/3 12:09am): I too adore that new like button! It's so good!
Holly (7/2 04:42pm): LOL, @Touchstoneaf. I'm so glad you like it so much. I was weirdly giddy the first time I got to use it. I even think it softens the "neutral" option we had a bit more, which kinda struck me as abrupt. But now it's "I swear that I'll never tell!" Which is just musical. ;-)
Touchstoneaf (7/2 03:16pm): Brains are strange creatures.
Touchstoneaf (7/2 03:15pm): Oddly I also find myself using it more now, in tandem with my comments, because I feel like it's "worth it", if that makes any sense, so that's cool.
Touchstoneaf (7/2 03:13pm): probably some kind of really dumb twist to human psychology, but it makes me really stupidly happy and I am really grateful to you.
Touchstoneaf (7/2 03:12pm): @Holly I don't know if it's just me,but this magical change to the like button really makes me feel so much better about likes. Just knowing that instead of it being just a like, feeling like the reader is saying "oh Spike, of course it's yes!" makes me feel like I'm getting a comment, which is...
Touchstoneaf (7/2 03:10pm): Congrats @DanishBird and @Fluffypuppy, you both very much deserve it!
The Danish Bird (7/2 11:18am): Thanks everyone!love @Pfeifferpack: Of course it's Dru...it almost makes sense now thinking big grin
The Danish Bird (7/2 11:09am): @LovingWilliam: Good vibes from me...I hope everything goes well, whatever the struggle may be.
Fluffypuppy (7/2 09:06am): Loving the stories thank you all ❤️
Joyce (7/2 08:25am): Happy birthday to nosleepforthewatcher! cheers
Joyce (7/2 08:24am): Congratulations to The Danish Bird and Fluffypuppy for being the current Members of the Month! applause
pfeifferpack (7/2 03:03am): partyHappy birthday to nosleepforthewatcher! Hope you have a day with everything brilliant coming your way. May you have a year of success and love yours every day.
pfeifferpack (7/2 03:02am): TheDanishBird... blame Dru for the date. She KNEW you'd be a fan and just jumped the gun a bit (she gets muddled at times).
pfeifferpack (7/2 03:01am): heart Prayers and concern for LovingWilliam.
pfeifferpack (7/2 02:59am): cheers Congratulations to The Danish Bird and Fluffy puppy, July's Members of the month. Well done and deserved.

Everything you need to know about Challenge Month

Challenge Month is just around the corner, and this post has all the deets you need to know. And what's a site challenge without an event skin? Some of you may recognise it from last year (we've brought it out of retirement) and it will be the featured site skin for the entire month. If you want to make it your default skin for the month, make sure to change it in your preferences page - it's called 'Challenge Month'.

In order to make sure everyone understands all that's going on, we'll try to cover everything here. If there's something you're not sure about, please let us know in the comments. There's a lot of information in this post, but please read the whole thing to be sure you know what's happening in April.

How and when do I post my story so that it's part of the event?
After midnight on April 1 (site time, which is Eastern US time-it's listed under the shoutbox), post your story as you normally would. Once you've added your story, find the challenge you're responding to on...

Welcome Back to the EF Admin Team, Holly!

With the farewell of our dearly beloved Susan, the rest of us—Amy, Megan, Kathleen, and I—put our heads together and discussed the best way to move forward. With as active and large a community/archive as Elysian Fields is, we agreed that we need to maintain the presence of a mod who is willing and able to focus on the backend maintenance and development aspects of the site. 

As many of you may have noticed, one of Elysian Fields' founders, Holly, recently became active again in the community. She has very graciously agreed to re-join the admin team, and is committed to learning the backend functions of the site. This is a huge task for anyone to take on, and there will be a learning curve as Holly gets brought up to speed with Susan's assistance, but we have every confidence that EF will be in good hands with her. We feel incredibly lucky and are so grateful to have her on the team again, as Holly's long history with EF, and the consequent insight/experience she brings to the admin role, is invaluable.

I could go on and on, but the best introductions come from the people themselves...
