The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 39

February 25, 2012 in FridayFlash Report by Tim VanSant

We had 58 stories in the Collector this week with 5 Debuts. Please welcome Evangeline Warren, Natalie Wood, Austin Malone, Steve Lakey, and Paul Weimer to the community. The stories this week fall under 11 different genres; the most common this week are Slice of Life, Horror, and Humor. What a wonderfully diverse community we have!

We tried a little upgrade to the Collector this week. FFDO members who are logged in can have their Name and Twitter ID automatically entered into the form. The next phase in improving the Collector is to read the RSS feed from your website and pull the Title and Address of your most recent post (on the assumption that that will be your #FridayFlash). It should work for most of you most of the time, but while we debug the script we’ll be displaying the information above the form rather than entering it into the form. Ultimately, members should find most of the form filled in automatically each week and need only specify the genre and whether they have a narrated or serial piece. Read this page to make sure your profile information is formatted correctly to take advantage of the upgrade. Of course, membership on this site is never required to participate in our weekly #FridayFlash, but we hope you’ll consider joining. And if you’re already a member, we hope you’ll find the upgraded Collector a nice little benefit.

As always, if your story is not in the listing below please go to the Collector and add the details. It will be in next week’s listing. ~Tim
