Membership Benefits

Not only can you still control your experience the way you always have, you now have much more control over the even greater functionalty of our new site. Most important, with a free membership you now can see ALL messages (pre-screened or unscreened) and have your replies posted instantly, allowing for much faster dialogue.

Registering is easy and takes no longer than filling out our previous posting form - except now you'll only have to do it once! Your email address will not be sold or distributed in any way. Here is a list of the additional functionality you'll get by creating a free profile:
  • View your and others' submissions as they happen, make postings and have them posted for public viewing instantly, allowing for faster dialogue. If you choose, you can turn off "unscreened" postings and view only those reviewed by us.
  • Attach a signature to your postings
  • Add a link to your blog or web site
  • Keep track of all your postings in one place
  • Add discussion threads to your Message Watch List
  • Add other users to your list of Favorite Authors
  • See which of your Favorite Authors are "online now"
  • Get a mobile alert (SMS) when someone responds to your message (requires a mobile email address) and view them on your phone!

You'll also be glad to know that all the functionality you're used to is still available as well. You can still browse the site without a user profile, but to post messages or control your search options, you'll need to sign up for a free account. Here is a list of the functions that have been moved to your free personal profile:
  • Search Results Page Size
  • Display message summaries or full messages in the search results
  • Disable the "sensitive material" warning

So what are you waiting for?
