We live the twenty-first century
So astronaut training's mandatory
     To return to Earth
     Show us your good mirth
And write a limerick in commentary

Thanks for joining April's fool!
The limerics you sent simply rule!
     And all those who grumbled
     Angry or disgruntled
Helped us in contrast look cool

Long version

As a result of the last poll today's site update focuses on multiple updates regarding stories!

ChatFighters already has over 20.000 PUBLIC stories posted! PLUS ~30.000 we saved from the old Yahoo networks.
To preserve the 'best' stories, we are introducing:

Story of the week

Each week the 'best' story will be selected and presented.

You found a story you wanted to read, but no time right now? Then, add it to your new:


In addition, the stories page and the individual story pages got a little face lifting to accommodate the new features.

Story of the week and Readlist were the clear winner - by far, from our last votes. Both are easily accessible from the central Story page.

Closing off this news, with an update to our donation system: We are now accepting PayPal!
If you did not donate yet and want to give us a small present, consider a donation :)

I want to thank all members who donated in the past! And to all members who use ChatFighters and bring it to life, with Federations, Stories, Books, and in the Chat!

Stay safe, stay healthy!

Polls closed.

The results (and comments) will strongly influence the updates for the next weeks and months. Thank you all for your time and participation.

Related to the poll, two updates got published today:

  1. The suggestion about sorting the 'latest stories' by publishing date is implemented. (only affecting newly posted stories.)
  2. Based on the results, the dice default behavior changed to 40/60 percent, resulting in a higher success rate of each dice throw.

Best Regards,
The Tech
