I've rearranged the site navigation system. In short, The Info Center was not the best way to do it. From any page, it took 3 clicks to reach the Rules page, among others, and this wasn't very efficient. So we're testing out a new one. If it works for everyone, then we're going to keep it.

A basic summary of what's different:

The Info Center is gone, and has been replaced with a combination of drop-down menus in the navigation bar, plus some other pages.

The Drop-Down Menus are:
  • Site Info: This takes you to the old Site Information Page. In the drop-down list, you can also jump to the About page, or the Rules page.
  • Resources: This displays four links to different types of literary resources.
  • Web Stuff: This has the Affiliates, Link Buttons, and Downloads pages.
  • Quick Links: This has some other random links:
    • The Calendar
    • View Posts Created Today
    • List of All Members
    • Mark all the forums as read (those red book icons will all change to blue ones)
    • Subscribed Threads
    • View your profile
    • View Who's Online
To view a list, move your mouse over it. You can also view a list as a separate page by clicking the list's title.

Is this working for everyone?

The statistics are on the Site Information page. Since it's probably not something a lot of people look at, we moved it out of the way.
