December 3, 2018: Heads up to the Fort Family readers, guests, and authors
Posted by ACFan

Once again, we will be doing upgrades to our services! (I know, this is becoming a bad habit!) Our server host has offered us an upgrade that is too good to pass up, so on Wednesday, December 5th the sites are going to be undergoing maintenance.

>>   From a reader and guest standpoint, you shouldn't see any problems - there is no anticipated downtime for the sites themselves. There is a slim possibility that you might see a glitch as the DNS servers update, but overall you shouldn't have any impact.

>> Authors, all we ask is that you hold off any posting on Wednesday and Thursday for sure - Friday should be safe, especially later in the day, but if you want to play it safe wait until late in the day Friday.

From all of us in the Fort Family and CSU Productions, I want to thank you for your support and patience as we work to give you the best service possible for your donation dollar.



December 2, 2018: Ooops...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi everyone,

I was going to tiptoe off to bed and hope no one noticed that I found another mistake in posting past work on The Shack Mirror site. I might have been able to pull it off if it didn't affect True's Fandom and the Fort Family Community site though ;)

Anyway, Comicality posted a brand new chapter of "Unforgettable" and it is included with all the new postings of old work on the same story. So, if you have been following the story elsewhere, Chapter 22 is available now! If you have been following it on the Shack Mirror Site or True's Fandom... Chapters 8 through 22 are up and ready for a group of insomniacs to tackle. Enjoy...
