Using the site like an online portfolio works for me. Good idea.

The site rebuild looks great. Simple. Clean. The white page look should encourage us, really, eh? A white page, a blank page, a new page. Shouldn't a new page scream at us to scribble stuff over it?

I'll be back. Got to go and Twitter in a manner useful to our cause.

What's New: Well, the colors and the layout a bit. Gone is the brown. We're going with the simple, elegant white, with dark blue and light blue accents. New header, no logo currently. All things subject to change, but always with thorough testing for functionality.

Also, my attitude. I haven't been utilizing this site, as an author. Which goes to show, why should anybody use this site if I'm not? So I'm going to be posting as frequently as I can to this site, to form a sort of online portfolio. I encourage others to do the same, but only if they so wish.

Coming soon: A list of works and pages on an author's profile page, for easy access. Also: Ratings and rating averages.

Hope my set-up chapters here are open enough - and make for easy collab add-ons. I figure humour makes it easier, fun, less serious. We can add and go where we like.

Very glad you like it :D Thanks, Jsimmons17. And Thanks to you and Everybody for building Remnants. We're the closest thing like Protag…possibly anywhere in the cold, often-too-serious www. It's Us versus the orcs…

Glad you like it - Thanks, Jsimmons17
We had those moments in sunshine, didn't we, at Protagonize? That's the Past. Now, we have Remnants :)

OMG I love it! The remnants of Protagonize! I love how the orcs are named after car manufacturers, and Merle Innes. This is amazing.

The style of this one is interesting. You get just a brief glimpse of each event. I like it.

Hey everybody, hopefully you’ve noticed a few changes in the site. These are for the better, I hope, and to make the site more beautiful to use. I’m making big changes over on (our beta site) so feel free to go take a look. I’m rebuilding the layout from scratch, so it’s very much under construction, but I think that it is going to turn out great.

As usual please leave comments, questions, suggestions, feedback, jokes, quotes and anecdotes here, and I’ll do my best to make this the best website I can make it.

Okay Jonty, I followed your instructions, and your karma levels shouldn't effect whether you can post or not any more. So sorry about the mishap, it's probably gonna happen to other people when the site goes quiet, so thanks for pointing it out. Happy writing!

Good to see ya, Jonty :)
Sensitivity is a good thing in a writer.
I had a joke about insensitivity. It bombed.

Howdy, Jsimmons - Looks like a site manager tweakable setting.
Found this…um, it won't let me post the link.

1/Go to your Site Manager
2/Select "Abuse" from the menu
3/Choose the "Options" link
4/Then change the settings that you would like to change. Setting karma limit to 0 allows everyone to post.
5/Save the changes

Ah! Great - it's letting me write again :) I haven't time to write everything I kept trying to write before and which this thing kept wiping out a few weeks ago, which is a shame. I went into some detail about what the next tour I was planning to do would be like for the sake of interest. Anyway, whatever about that. A huge "Thank you" to both of you for being so incredibly positive and sorry if I sometimes get a bit sensitive. I've always been like that. A great big "Thank you" to Jsimmons for keeping this whole thing alive.

Last time I tried to write something here it said my karma was too low. I assume that means I'm blocked from this site forever? A pity. I'm trying one last time to see if it'll let me write something…

Sorry for the lack of progress here, Ladies and Gentlemen. Please rest assured that I am still working on making the site better, more beautiful, and easier to use. Please also know that the site is stable, and will not go down. All are welcome! This is our port in a storm. This is not just a site for me, or for one single story, but a site for everyone.
If you have ideas for new formats, or website design, please let me know, and I wil work on making them happen.

I’m sorry, Jonty, please don’t leave. I want you guys to feel welcome here.

Jonty, BUDDY, just in case you're feeling like going…I'd want you to stay. Tho I believe I'd find you again, it hasn't been an easy game searching for the old Protag gang. We scattered, like lifeboats in a storm. I'm eternally grateful to JSimmons, She behind the curtain at Remnants. I hope the old gang still out there has found as Protag-like and friendly a shore.

That said, I never minded your Guided Walk posts on Protag. They prompted googling, and if-only daydreams. I wanted more, tho. Say a couple hundred words more. Okay, I wanted a short travelogue, along with the guided walk deets.

That's just me, being selfish. 'Coz I can't make it to London. 'Coz, if I could, I'd be the tourist hovering by your elbow. I'd be the tourist with the questions - Why isn't Whitechapel white? - Why's the Thames brown? - Will there be lunch? I SOOO wanna be that tourist.

So why not try a wee travelogue here, hmmm? Practice on us. Paint us a picture.

it's not breaking a rule. It is the fact that it's in London. It's the fact that it's not a writing thing. I didn't mean offense. I was confused.

I'm letting people know about something that might be of interest. If it is they'll come. If it isn't they won't. I wasn't aware that this was a problem. If it is please tell me what bit is the problem. Is it the walk? Is it the fact that it's got my real name? Is it the fact that it's in London? I honestly didn't know it was a problem. Please let me know and I'll avoid transgressing whatever rule I've transgressed. Or better still I'll leave this site altogether.

Jonty? Why is this here?
