A place to read old stories?

A place to read old stories? was created by Caylane
First off I'd like to apologize if this question has been answered before.

Anyway, I've been wanting to read some old stories from a number of years back, before the site took on its new look. I've tried using Wayback Machine, but sadly even that doesn't have the data stored on it. Is there a chance that the authors have had their own sites and uploaded their great works there? A pretty good example would be yohashuan "Serena" series.

AFAIK the storybank is supposed to be reseeded with all the old stories. Until this happens, this seems to be the best way to view the old stories - all six parts of Serena included.

Nice. I didn't know about this. Haven't read some of these in a long while (including chapters 5 & 6 of Serena, which I didn't really like at the time because they took the story in a direction I didn't want it to go... but actually aren't that bad now that I'm reading them 10 years later).

Anyway, thx for this link! :)

The worst thing about those parts was that they were the last ones :P

Quoted for truth, Serena still had tons of potential to exploit.

if people want to help me restore the storybank to full can they take their favorite story and submit it to the site.

it would help me get that monkey of my back.

During the last month I had barely the time to post replies on the site, but I hope to help with the reseed in the coming weeks.

If anybody can join in reseeding, I'll be glad to help as well. I remember that the stories are supposed to be posted with their original date which doesn't seem to be possible for the normal user.

The date can be viewed easily here , I don't know why I posted the other link earlier. This one is much more nostalgic and reminds me of my time as a lurker on this site.

Should the date be posted as a header of the submission? Maybe along with Storytags since they can't really be added during submission.
