PlayByMail.Net is a PBM oriented website, whose aim is to promote play by mail gaming and to give PBM gamers a place to gather. From this website has evolved the PBM Wiki, a blog, and Suspense & Decision magazine, a PBM magazine for the 21st Century. The site contains both a discussion forum and a blog. The site seeks to facilitate PBM gaming by serving as a major modern resource for play by mail.
Well, it was long overdue after it dropped off the face of the human Earth planet, but Issue #10 of Suspense & Decision magazine - a PBM magazine for the 21st Century - is out ad available for download, at last.
Work on Issue #11 is already well under way. Stuff is just pouring in, today. That's a nice change of pace. I just hope that the enthusiasm is maintained!
This blog was placed here, originally, to help the site with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) efforts. Our magazine's long absence from publication, and the silence here that attended it, certainly didn't help matters any, where SEO is concerned.
But, it is what it is. We live in the here and now, and that's where our focus presently is - on getting wheels turning and issues churning out, once again.
From the look of things, today, we seem to be well on our way.
People have begun posting a few new messages in our forum, of late, so don't forget to check those out, when you get time. I even posted a brief editorial, of sorts, in the forum, here, today.
It may not be perfect (that's an understatement, for sure), but at least it's progress.
Yeah, that fix was long overdue, but aside from the mere fact that this particular problem (or set of problems) has gotten fixed, I now, also, have located someone who can assist me, in the event of future such problems with the forum end of this overall site's operations.
The icing on the cake, of course, is that we have a fresh install of the forum software, and we're running the latest version - plus, the guy that fixed the problem managed to successfully import all of the existing user accounts and old messages, so that the forum didn't simply have to start over from scratch. That is a BIG boon to the site, and for those who frequent it.
On the PBM end of things, more big news will be forthcoming!
