Greetings! I'm 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!
I 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And last, we finally bid farwell to all the extremely out-of-date instant messenger options and usher in a new era of the social media links in the profiles!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). I figured these 5 new options will cover most needs but if there's a high demand for another social media service I 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: I'm 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.

Wanna be one of the first to check out new themes for the site? I am seeking beta testers to peruse the site with one of the new skins I'm working on and help me work out any kinks before we reveal the themes to the world! If you are interested, shoot an email to MTT.firstname.lastname@example.org with your fanfic username and I will grant you access. Thank in advance!

Bust out the brown and gray balloons, it is MTT's 10th birthday!
I don't have too much to say except thanks to SicoKitty for creating this site! And thanks to all the previous mods who have made the site what is it, ftmill16, idnaoj80 and I are hoping to continue your good work!
If you haven't yet, please check out the 10th anniversary survey in the previous news item. Have gotten a few great responses already, including from a couple fave Office fic writers! Also check out our hosting funrasier, where if you donate you can get a small gift featuring PB&J art!
Notifications *should* be working now! This includes Password reset, and notifications of new reviews, updates to favorite stories, and author replies to your reviews. You can update your notification settings in "My Account" > "Edit Preferences". The email will come from email@example.com so add that address to your safe list.
If you need a new password but longer have access to the email you used to registered email (which I think is the case for many of you!), let me know via firstname.lastname@example.org (or MTT.email@example.com) and we'll figure it out! Any other questions and concerns can go there as well.
Happy birdday, MTT!

If you can believe it, July 9th, 2016 marks 10 years of MTT being online! To mark the occasion, we thought it would be fun to reminisce with a survey all about writing and reading Office fic and just being in the Office Flandom.
Or head to the message boards to see all the questions. Looking forward to the responses!

It's about that time of year: MoreThanThat's hosting is due soon and sadly our hosting provider does not accept SchruteBucks or Stanley Nickels (we asked).
To commemorate MTT's 10th birthday this month, if you donate $10 or more during July, you can receive a small gift! Check out the message board topic for all the info or email us at MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com with any questions.
In addition, your Office obsessed mod who's been drawing these PB&J moments will be contributing half of the July proceeds from her RedBubble shop to the MTT hosting pot. So treat yo'self and help out MTT in the process!

In the heyday of The Office, the NBC Message Boards featured The Pam Dichotomy and The Jim Paradox, where user ScrantonBranch lovingly unpacked and explained virtually every exchange Jim and Pam had in seasons 3-5, from lengthy speeches to quick, seemingly insignificant glances (though as we Office fans know, no look between these two was insignificant!).
The NBC boards went the way of the Stamford Branch and I was worried the PD and JP were lost to us. Thankfully ScrantonBranch is also an MTT user so I was able to reach out to her and see if there was a chance of bringing these great analyses back. Now I'm pleased to announce the Pam Dichotomy and Jim Paradox will be published here in their entirety!
In addition to being a fun trip down memory lane, the PD and JP are a great fanfiction resource especially when trying to get into the heads of these two in the early years. ScrantonBranch is also including the original discussion questions which are potentially great prompts for some "what if" fanfics. These analyses are also just great to read as you rewatch episodes and will give you a deep appreciation for the work and attention to detail that the writers and actors put into Jim and Pam's story. So please read, comment and enjoy!
(MTT has an all new team and we are working on new features as well as attempting to address issues. Please don't hesitate to contact us at MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc!)

Hello MTT readers! It's a special time as this Wednesday, May 11th marked the 10 year anniversary of the airing of Casino Night, the S2 finale that launched a thousand fanfics! Do you have a favorite Casino Night-centered fic? (if you can pick just one, there's LOTS to choose from) Please let me know in the comments or shoot a message to MTT.firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll make a recommended Casino Night fic list!
I just made an offsite recommendation for a CN fic from Pam's POV. And by the way, if you have any other offsite fic recommendations, please feel free to add them!
Reminder: there's an email glitch that's preventing the site from sending users any email, this includes any story/review alert, password reset, new registration welcome emails, etc. I am hoping to resolve this soon, but in the meantime password resets will have to be done by an administrator so if you need a new password, send your username and the email on your account to MTT.Fanfic@gmail.com. (If you no longer have access to the email on your account, let us know and we'll see what we can sort out).
This is also a good time to log in and make sure that the email on your account is up to date in "Edit Bio". Plus I recommend heading to "Edit Preference" and making sure your story/review/fave update alert are set how you want them!
That's about all for now, now to watch Casino Night for the umpteenth time!

Hello everyone! Well the time came for the baton to be passed if MTT were to stay online so the Archive is now under new management! I'm Ladama, I was pretty active in the fandom back in the day, took a 7 year hiatus from fanfic writing, then returned just in time to get pulled in an admin position! I'll be joining avid office flans ftmill16 and idnaoj80 in maintaining the archive.
First off, writers old and new, we want your submissions! Once you are registered and/or logged in, go to "My Account" and click "Add New Story." To assure no spambots manage to post stories, an admin will have to approve your first submission but then you can be "validated" and upload future chapters/stories without needing approval.
Right now users can't recover passwords automatically, they will have to be reset manually by an admin, so if you need a new password please contact us at MTT.email@example.com. To speed up the process, please include your MTT username and the email you used to register. (I am working on resolving this, hopefully it will be soon!)
Also, one feature I think it rather underutilized on the site is Recommendations. If you know of a great Office fic on FFN, AO3 or elsewhere, click here to add it as an off-site recommendation.
And last but definitely not least: this site does need real money to keep going, as Dreamhost does not accept SchruteBucks. If you enjoy this archive, please consider contributing a Hamilton ($10) or two to help with our hosting costs. Your contribution will go directly to Dreamhost, the admins cannot access the funds for magic supplies, new office chairs, WUMPH.com shares or anything of the like.
Again, any question, comments, or tips for me on how to maintain an old eFiction archive are gladly accepted at MTT.firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time and looking forward to taking care of MTT!
