Happy October! We have a few fun updates and other things to announce just in time for spooky season!
For many writers, this month also means gearing up for Nanowrimo in November! If you are an MTTer taking part in the 30 day novel writing challenge, come post on the new forums and let's make a little MTT Nano group!
We are always striving to make improvements and add features to the archive. This month we have launched a Save as EPUB feature, which lets you save any story to your favorite eReader to be read whenever! We are also working on adding better ways to navigate the archive with some new Sort features. Now when you browse, you can order stories by word count, read count, review count and published date.
That's about it for our September report! Don't forget to leave reviews on any stories you like (writers love reviews!) or to check out our new forums .

Just click the EPUB Icon on any story to download an EPUB eBook. You do need to be registered and logged in to download EPUBs, but we promise registration is quick and easy (twss).
You can read more about this new feature here , including detailed instructions for a wide variety of devices! Happy Reading!

Hello MTTers! Many apologies if you received a review notification only to find a review full of links or nothing at all since it was deleted. A spam account registered in the middle of the night and got off a few dozen reviews before I was able to lock the account up.
We have taken many anti-spam measure including not allowing anonymous reviews, installing the anti-spam program Bad Behaviour and monitoring registrations as closely as we can. As a result this was our first mass-spammer in several months! Just a reminder, you can adjust your notification in your account settings. In the mean time I'm always looking for more, improved anti-spam measures as well as submitting requests and suggestions to the eFiction developers.

Hello readers! It was another pretty busy month "behind-the-scenes" at MTT as we continue to work on getting everything updated and also adding some new features!
First off, we are launching an Author Of The Month series! Each month we admins will select an author to feature and hopefully get some attention to their stories.
The inaugural author of the month is: watchthesky84, who has written 8 Jim/Pam one shots, and each one is a great short read! You can read more about her and about this new series at our new message board.
Speaking of: Our main site got a massive overhaul, and we have a brand new message board with a new community behind it! You don't have to be registered to post replies on the message board, but if you do choose to register you'll have access to lots of fun features like setting up profile, friending other MTTers, personal messaging, and more. You do have to set up a new account even if you are registered here or at the old forums but we promise it's pretty painless!
Some of the other things added last month:
- New Find a Beta Reader Thread
- Launching of our Recommendation List and Fanfic Primer List building initiative
- added "min" and "max" word count filters to the browse stories area
- New "Story End" feature where at the end of stories you can easily go to the authors other stories, or what readers who liked that story also liked.
- A new "night" theme: 27 Seconds
- A new option to change your penname
- Some new story management options including making your story "adoptable"
We also have a big event in the works for October, stay tuned for more!

Introducing: the option to change your penname
Hey, we get it, "JimHalpertsSexyLover" seemed like a great penname when you registered but now you want to have something a little less fannish. Maybe you've used your penname lot of other places and now you want to separate your Office stuff from other online (or even offline) stuff, or you want to change so your online handles are more consistent. Whatever your reason, we are now offering the option to change your penname!
How to do it: It's highly preferred that you log in to the archive, then go to "contact us " and fill out the contact form to request your new penname, it's the best way for us to know it's actually you! An admin will change your penname on your stories and also change your penname on reviews for other stories you've written (these are two separate steps so it may take a little time, typically within 48 hours). Please note that we will only change your penname once (maaaaaaybe twice if you ask real nicely) so please choose your new penname carefully.
If you are having trouble logging in or no longer have access to the email address on your account, send an email to MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com and we'll help you out.
Introducing: A New Night Theme
Currently all our theme options have a very light background, so we are introducing a "night mode" theme: 27Seconds. It featured a dark blue background, off-white text and a splash of color.
To change to this theme, select "27Seconds" from the drop down menu in the "Info" section or at the very bottom of the page. (And feedback is certainly appreciated on this theme!)
And a couple odds and ends:
- Writers: Please check out our newest challenge "Nice Morning, Too"
- All user (registered or not): Please fill out this quick MTT User Survey
- Our hosting FunRaiser is still going on ! Help us get a head start on the next year!

Challenges are a term for prompts or themes meant to inspire our writers. Writers should feel free to answer any of the challenges here, especially if no one has responded yet! First, you need to upload your story, once your story is uploaded, you can find the challenge you want to answer, hit "response to challenge" and select your story. We will be (very occasionally) posting new challenges that will be announced here.
Our newest challenge is: "Nice Morning, Too."
(because there needs to be stories about that first talking head in 9x21 "Living the Dream"!)
If you have any challenge ideas, please submit them to MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com or if you're on the boards, post in this thread.
(Unrelated, but we want to hear from everyone in our Quick User Survey . Responses are anonymous, so please be honest!)

Happy August everyone! We are happy to announce that the MTT Forum finally got a very-much-needed overhaul and now we're functional again! Sadly there's just too many spambots to reopen registration, but if you'd like to join us over there, please send your preferred username to us at MTT.email@example.com and a mod can add you.
Also, we had many generous donors during our hosting fundraiser, and we thank you all very much! We not quite yet covered for the full year so the FunRaiser is being extended through August! Check out more details here!
And last, a friendly reminder to check out our new Bookshelf feature, we really think it's going to be a useful tool for readers!

It's been a big month for MTT, we end the month with two small updates and one big update!
First, to our writers: in My Account there is now a "Reviews Recieved" link where you can easily see how many reviews your stories have recieved and how many you have not responded to.
We have expanded the Top Lists from 10 to 25, so now you can see the 25 most read stories, most favorite authors etc.
Also we have introduced an exciting new feature: Bookshelf! You can read more about it here but in short it lets you save stories to a browsable list and will also show you the last time you read a story. There are many ways you can choose to utilize this feature, it's all up to you!
--Admin Team on July 31, 2016 03:36 pm 0 Comments
The updates continue! We decided to roll out a new theme (or skin) for the archive here! Our goal with this theme was to create something responsive and mobile friendly. There are a few things we want to work out (like a mobile dropdown menu) but for the most part we think the theme is ready for the world! If you are nostalgic for one of the old themes, you can always swich back with the changer, located right above the "Story of the moment" box, and if you are a registered user you can set your default theme in your preferences.
We have a plan to have several different colored themes with a header image featuring a moment from each season! Color scheme suggestions as well as image suggestions are welcome! We also created a couple new pages located in the Welcome section, they are a new Writing resources page and a Troubleshooting/Update page. Anything that you would like to add to those pages, please email us at MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com or sends us a message via the "Contact Us" option.

Greetings! We're happy to announce a few small but hopefully fun updates to the fanfic archive.
First off, the archives been updated to the latest version of eFiction, there's not really any new and exciting changes with the next version but it is good to always be up to date. Also it's now officially easier to direct your friends to MTT! Just tell them to type mttjustonce.net in the address bar, no periods of hyphens, and they should end up at this very fanfic archive!
We turned on a feature in the archive where, when you click stories with multiple chapters, you are taken to the table of content rather than to the 1st chapter. Registered Members have the option of turning this off by going to "My Account" > "Edit Preferences".
And last, we finally bid farwell to all the extremely out-of-date instant messenger options and usher in a new era of the social media links in the profiles! Now in your bio you can include links to your Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and to your Fanfiction.Net and ArchiveOfOurOwn profiles, and of course the classic website and LiveJournal options are still around. Plus they now appear as stylish icons! Add your links by clicking "My Account" > "Edit Bio". (BTW, do NOT include "http://" for fields that ask for a URL). We figured these 5 new options will cover most needs but if there's a high demand for another social media service we can add that as well.
Here are new icons (the book is FFN! the @ is ao3 and the pencil is LJ)
Couple other odds and ends: we are also getting close to releasing a couple new skins that should be a nice update as well as more mobile friendly! The 10th Anniversary Survey is still open and awaiting responses, and we are very close to our FunRaising goal of being covered hosting wise for a whole year! That's about it for now, any and all questions, comments, etc can be directed to MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com.
