Nightcandle (9/25 06:56pm): I'm happy that the site is up and running again, but trying to comment on fics still leads to an error message for me. (I'm posting this here as a 'heads-up' for other users)
Holly (9/25 06:53pm): We are working on it. Please see the latest news post. https://dark-solace.org/...d=253
Rkf22 (9/25 06:09pm): The website still a fatal error everything seems to work on your cell phone not computer
Holly (9/25 05:27pm): Yes, we switched on the ability to see PHP errors to troubleshoot some possibilities. That's been switched back off.
JustMe2 (9/25 05:21pm): Website now back to mostly working for me - yay, but am now getting an odd error at the top of the page (does not affect functionality) - Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/u779083558/domains/dark-solace.org/public_html/elysian/includes/get_session_vars.php on line 30
slaymesoftly (9/25 03:03pm): Here's a link to the info about the next round of Seasonal Spuffy. You don't have to have an LJ to read it. Spoiler alert, no fall round.https://seasonal-spuffy.livejournal.com/....html
pfeifferpack (9/25 02:20am): partyHappy birthday to Rebcake, SpikeVampKing00 & Ravenazz! Hope the whole day brings great joy. May you be well loved & lavishly gifted. May you have a year with rewards & success, great joy and fulfillment.
Willow91 (9/25 12:28am): @Ethereal Demon Yes, with comments and with posting the next chapter on one of my fics as well. I'll try again tomorrow. =)
Nightcandle (9/24 11:47pm): @Ethereal Demon yes (and the shoutbox has hiccups, too). I didn't notice any error messages, but then I realized that of my 5 comments I wrote for a fic only 1 was displayed. When I rewrote and resubmitted the last one I got an error message too. (2nd time, it took and the comment was saved properly
Ethereal Demon (9/24 10:21pm): Anyone else been getting error messages when you try to submit comments?
slaymesoftly (9/24 08:23pm): Nice to see it working. Got an error message a couple of hours ago, but remembered the transition was happening and just went away for a while.
bewildered (9/24 05:51pm): Just posting a "little test" here... Sorry if you get déjà vu...
holetoledo (9/24 03:02am): Prompts make me anxious! Everything makes me anxious anyway. xD There are some fun ones in there though.
Violette-Milka (9/23 03:59pm): @Eazysworld n'hésite pas à me dire si les histoires que je t'ai suggérée t'auront fascinée et tu les auras aimait autant que moi
Nightcandle (9/23 08:17am): @CheekyKitten I look at them quite often to see what ideas others have come up with, and I second the ones I'd like to see realized in a full story. At first, I only saved challenges with replies to them, but now I also have a bunch saved where I sincerly HOPE that someone is going to reply to them.
pfeifferpack (9/23 07:18am): partyHappy birthday to Tari_na, Goteach444 & Sajaat! May you be well celebrated all day with all you most love at hand. May your greatest wishes be fulfilled & may your heart be filled with love, mind with good memories. May this year bring blessings, joy, laughter & success.
Joan963z (9/23 03:32am): As an autjor I like to look at the challenges with the most wants. It gives me information of what readers want to read.
Savvy (9/23 01:40am): @CheekyKitten I admit I don’t look that much because they’re too fun and hype me up to plots that haven’t been adopted yet by any writer, so I just avoid them if I can
CheekyKitten (9/22 09:42pm): Out of curiosity, how often do you all look at Challenges? I find myself perusing them pretty consistently and upvoting or saving. So was curious.
Holly (9/22 09:10pm): @dw7thdoctor - We do mean all AI material.
dw7thdoctor (9/22 07:24pm): Hi I was looking at the submission guidlines and talks about not using Text AI generated material. I've made art with an AI generator is that not allowed either or just text based stuff.
pfeifferpack (9/22 08:46am): Thank you cd85 blush Hope it was worth the wait and that you have so much good come your way that you can't count!

Server Migration Update


Hi guys! We know many of you have been waiting patiently for updates on the site migration. Here's where we are right now:  

  • Full site functionality has returned for many users; it is still in limbo for others
  • This is normal as DNS records can take 48-72 hours to update
  • All our conversations with the host indicate everything is on track and going well. We just need to be patient.
  • Email remains spotty, but this is because we have work to do on our end to make sure the email servers are functional. It's separate from the site migration. So, readers might just check the Most Recents for fic updates and authors watching for comments might need to visit the site to see any new ones until we get this fixed. It's been a busy weekend for your Mods but the site itself was our first priority.

  Please do keep us updated on issues that you continue to have (DMs or by emailing elysianfieldsarchive@gmail.com)...

Host Change

Hello EF,

Over the last couple of years, you’ve heard us reference issues we have with our current website host more than once. Well, we decided to do something about it. We’re in the process of changing hosts; in fact, our assets are currently being migrated to the new hosting platform. Our new host was chosen after a careful audit of available alternatives that started in July when the site was inaccessible and culminated in our decision to switch providers, well, now.

Once the migration is complete, Elysian Fields will need to update our domain information so that everything is pointed at the right place and fully functional. There might be temporary downtimes before the end of the month, but we’ll do our best to mitigate the effects by initiating these changes during times when the site is less active. That said, this is a new thing for all of your Mods, so please be patient. If all goes well, you won’t notice a thing. If you do notice something, that’s probably...

Event Announcement: Anniversary Month 2023

I know so many of you have been bursting at the seams to know the theme for our October event, and we’ve been bursting at the seams to tell you, so… Because EF will be turning 17, and that was the age at which Buffy had a significant milestone in her relationship with Spike, our theme is in honor of said milestone. Which is to say, the theme is TRUCE!

What kind of truce? Between who? To what end? Why? Does it go well or explode in their faces? Well, obviously, we are a Spuffy site and so all of the participating stories must be Spuffy focused overall, but your truce can be set in any season, timeline, or alternate universe, between any two (or more) characters. So, basically, go nuts with it. Here’s the rundown of how the event will work:

  • Written works must be 100 words minimum and include or address the theme in some fashion. 
  • There is no word count limit for artwork-only pieces or mixed-media works (that consist of both words and pictures).
  • If you are writing a multi-chaptered fic, the first chapter must be posted during the month of October according to site time––no earlier, no later. (As always, you...
