The FictionDB Redesign

Whether you're a long-time FictionDB visitor or have just found us, we'd like you to have a say in how the future FictionDB will look and function.

Why does FictionDB have to change?
FictionDB will be ten years old in November. Much of what you see on the current site has been around for a long time. Technology has drastically changed and with the site's recent growth spurt, we need to take advantage of that. While FictionDB is currently not broken, it could break in the future if we are not prepared.

What input do we need from our visitors?
We'd like you to tell us what you like and don't like about the site. How can the site better serve your reading needs? The site is going to be rewritten from scratch so here is your chance to make it exactly what you want.

When will the redesign be done?
Good question. We don't know. It will take as long it takes. As soon as we get a test version up and running, the redesign team will be invited to take it for a test drive.

How to join the FictionDB Redesign Team.
We've started a Google Group that can be found here:

Everyone is invited to join and share their thoughts on the process. We think getting your input is really important to the future of FictionDB.
