    • Some of you may still use RSS feed readers or notification apps on your mobile device.  To help you find the fandom you'd like to monitor, please use the following links as needed: Series and Movies: TOS: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aathoseoldscientists TNG: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aatng DS9: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aads9 VOY: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aavoy ENT: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aaent AOS/Kelvin: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.om/aaaos DIS: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aadis PIC: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aapic LD: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aald SNW: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aasnw PRO: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.om/aapro Alternate & Expanded Universes AU (General): http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aaaug Expanded Universes: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aaeu Mirror Universe: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aamirror Pi'maat: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aapimaat Raptor-verse: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aaraptor Star Eagle Adventures: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aasea Full Speed Ahead: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aafullspeed Gibraltar: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aagib Lexington: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aalexington Phoenix-X: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aaphxx Star Trek Online: http://feeds.adastrafanfic.com/aasto This is not the definitive list: I'll be adding more feeds as I can (or as Steff creates them when EU stories reach the minimum threshold).

    • Hey guys! Well, for those of you watching here instead of Discord: We've gotten our instance of otw-archive up and running and opened for public beta!  You can find the shiny new site here: Ad Astra :: Star Trek Fanfiction Archive Some things to bear in mind: Tagging on the new archive follows the same rules as on the old archive!  So please read the FAQ and adhere to it.  In fact, read all the FAQs, they contain some valuable information, including how our Expanded Universes folks can have their own fandom. As for our old home-- Ad Astra's original eFiction archive will remain in situ as a static monument.  On September 1st (or about), the archive goes into permanent read-only mode and the top domain will point to the new archive instead.  You have that much time to post, edit, etc.   Please don't repost reviews on your works from the old site to the new one under any circumstances.  If you want to copy the reviews you wrote to stories moved over to the new site, though, that is absolutely allowed.  (But you should maybe write new ones, too. XD) Anyway, there ya go.  We did it.  Go enjoy the new labor of love and let's see what happens!
    • Hey, welcome back! Short version is yes, it'll be fixed when we move to the new application.   Long version is that eFiction is horribly broken and it's been in "development" by three different people over the last six years with little to show for it.  The last real update we got was back in 2013-2014.  Unfortunately, it means we can't make any changes to the site for fear of breaking it, and also I think when we upgraded the environment for security purposes, it broke eFiction's ability to secure itself somehow.  We just need to move away from abandonware. MDg
    • Glad to hear that we've got a plan moving forward! I'd noticed some site-security issues lately, with people I'd directed to Ad Astra not being able to connect to the site due to what looks like a security certification lapse. Is that something that this new move will fix? Many thanks to Mike and SLWalker for all your work keeping this amazing place up and running. - Gibraltar
    • Hello everyone! This will likely be the final year of Ad Astra in its current form.  Even though there's a really nice group of people developing for eFiction (after many many years of abandonment), we've made the decision to move the site to OTW-Archive, which is the same application that AO3 uses.  Furthermore, instead of using AO3's preservation feature, we didn't want to abandon the community for AA entirely by simply being absorbed into a much larger writing community.  It runs counter to the vision of Ad Astra. So, over the course of this year, we'll be working on building a new server and deploying the software.  Testing is going to take a really long time as we figure out the load of the new application under stress, as well as evaluate security issues, as well as a bunch of other needs to look after in the long term.  We're getting really helpful advice from people with practical experience that will assist us in avoiding the pitfalls of administration and maintenance, but we're going back to school on this and it'll take some time. In short, the goal is that by this time in 2024, we'll be fully on the new hardware/software.  As we move in that direction, @SLWalker and I will be making periodic updates on progress. We're not asking for any monetary assistance at this time; it's early days so the cost is nominal for right now and well within our budget. If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to have your curiosity sated, feel free to reply and one of us will respond with info. Thanks for your continued support! MDg
