So you want to start your own Series.

First go to your Member Account and hit Add New Series.

Image

Then fill in the name and details of your series. This is big so it covers two pics, excuse the formatting:

Image
Image

Note the bit at the bottom that says
closed = only you can add stories to it
open = other people can add stories to it
moderated = you, the owner moderate stories submitted to the Series.

Then hit Submit

You can then select which stories you submit from your collection:

Image

If you want to add another story to the series at a later date, go to your account preferences ate select Manage Series

Image

And you can see your current series (Example Series) with options to add a story, to edit its details or delete the series altogether. You can add a new series from this menu.

Image

If you hit Add to Series, you get the previous add story menu:

Image

You can view all series in Alphabetical order on the main menu.

Hi!

I'm new here and obviously not too bright... :comphit:

I tried to start posting a story and it keeps putting it in the Gemcity Series -- hunh?! Am I doing something wrong or does it default to that series when Tibbs and company are mentioned in the story? If that's the case, I'm cool with it, I'm just trying to get it right the first time. LOL... :gah:

Thanks!

Are you picking "Add New Story" or "Add New Series"? I've never seen that before.

I had toggled add a new story. I hit my laptop and everything and it wouldn't get rid of the Gemcity series tag in the preview... :banghead:

I'll try again tomorrow and let you know what happens then -- I'm giving up for the night. :offtobed:

Thanks!

Hmm, I've just dusted off the story board test user and I had the same problem - I submitted a story with no hint of a series and it then went and assigned it to the gemcity series. I didn't even know we had a gemcity series, it was probably invented for a tutorial or something.

I think you've found bug. I'm going to investigate further.

I assume that on the preview panel your story says that it is in the "The Gemcity Collection *FR13 - FR21*" series which is owned by jagfanatic. If you click on the series, however, it is closed (so only the owner can submit to it) and it only contains one story - hers, not yours or mine.

So I went ahead and submitted my test story and, although the preview says the story is in The Gemcity Collection, when you actually submit (add story) and check out your story, it says

series: none

Hmmmm - this looks like a job for someone with story board knowledge and power.

The upshot is that you can just submit your story and it will have no series attached to it when you finish Just ignore the series stuff and we'll see what we can fix up.

That "series" thing is a known bug, I think. Others have run across it, too. Pay no attention to it; walk slowly away. It only wants to be fed bread crumbs and chocolate. :)

I had a play with the story board last night for a short while but I couldn't see how to remove it. I might play again today inbetween kids, pre-christmas and 100F temperatures.

Can you tell I love in the Southern hemisphere?
