Ad Astra's New Home
The site's new home is now stable! You can find it here: Ad Astra :: Star Trek Fanfiction Archive
. The only two authors whose works are being moved to the new site by archivists are those we know we lost to the other side -- thebluesman and RobertScorpio -- so if you're not one of them, you'll have to do the physical work of moving yourselves over.This archive will become read-only on September 1st, and the top level domain will point to the new archive.
We're not taking this one down, but you won't be able to use it to post or review.
Hope to see you over there.

Ad Astra's new software is now in beta
Ad Astra's new software (otw-archive) is now running in beta. That means, barring any catastrophes, the days for this current eFiction site being interactive are numbered. We plan on keeping this archive forever as a static snapshot in time, but there will come a time in the near future when all posting is going to be disabled.
If you'd like to come poke the new site with a stick, join our Discord! It's not ready for full deployment yet, I'm still fixing a ton of hard coding, but it is functional enough.
Love you all. Love this place, too; time to bring it into the twenty-first century.

Ad Astra in 2023 and Beyond
Hello! Yes, we're still alive! And-- so is our humble little archive, albeit on the quiet side.
The reason I'm adding this news item today is to direct you to this announcement on our forums: Ad Astra's Plan for 2023
. The upshot is that, over this coming year, we're going to make an attempt to bring the archive into the modern era by deploying OTW-Archive, the same software AO3 runs on. We're also going to be cleaning up the forums and looking into other community-planning ideas!
If you want to keep up with us, the forums are still active and we're also on Discord; in fact, Mike and I especially are easily reached there. We also have channels on our server for authors and artists, too. So, feel free to come on over, we'd be glad to have you.
If you're one of the people (like me) who has run into SQL errors on the site, then one work-around is to use a VPN and change your IP address. Just something to hold you over until we can hopefully permanently address it with a server and software change.
Anyway, it's good to see you, those of you still using the site. And here's to all of you who want to but are waiting for a better build, too.
Especially, here's to our future.
