Over the last couple month we have worked very hard on Slap A Story. We have listened to you - the writers and th readers and tried to develop the needed features to make Slap A Story a unique, user friendly experience for our communitee. So below is an outline of new features.

  • We have dropped support for IE6 - reason being that we only have one developer (me :>) and not enough time to fix all the bugs that plague Internet explorer 6, please update to IE7 or download Firefox.
  • A new login design - allowing you to sign in and stay in the same page.
  • You can now remove your comments and stories in case you made a typo or doubled up on stories
  • A New notify tab in profiles - allows you to switch off email notifications for comments and newsletters
  • Various user interfaces fixes and improvements to make the site more enjoyable to read and navigate.

Sincerely yours,
the Slap A Story team.
