After getting feedback from my recent suggestions wanted post, I've made a couple of changes that should help improve Crimespace.

First up, you'll no longer find the latest forum posts on the main page. I'm only going to feature a few general Crimespace posts, the plan being to encourage members to click through to the Forum, where the bulk of discussion takes place. The reason for doing this is that topics are dropping out of sight and mind once they leave the front page, when they could be provoking further discussion.

Secondly, I've added a new profile question for all members. It's called "I Am A:" and has five multiple choice answers in the form of Reader, Writer, Librarian, Publisher, Editor, Agent. So please edit your profile and fill us all in.

I would assume that all members are readers, but it's possible that some are more than one of the others. This question will now be a required answer for all new members and should help us find like-minded souls more easily.

In the near future I am also looking at adding a flash fiction section to the website, complete with podcasting. More details on that to come. To keep me busy until that happens, I've started work on a resource section. Once I have enough of it together, I hope that members will contribute and I can expand it to be the best collection of crime fiction links on the internet.

Lastly, if these changes don't work out, I can always go back to how things were.

As Ike Turner or Yogi Berra once said, "Things are more like they are now than they ever were before."

I think there's something in that for all of us.

They sound like fabulous changes. Thanks so much for your continuing work on this community Daniel - it's much appreciated.
You're welcome. And thank you for your work too! ;)
I didn't go edit my profile yet, but perhaps you want to add Librarian to the choices for "I Am A"
Good idea. I've added it to the list.
Daniel - looks great. Thank you for all your work and for making this such a great place to hang out.
Crimespace goes from strength to strength! Nice work, Daniel, and much appreciated.
Thanks for all the work, Daniel. I love Crimespace!
Thank you once again for our recent home renovations...things just keep improving! Thanks also for the hard work and time you have put into this.
I like having the member pictures on the front page-thanks for all your hard work Dan!
You're most welcome, all of you. It's not quite as much work as you might think. And thank you to all of you for your ideas and contributions to the forum.
Hi Daniel,

I'm glad to see you're continuing to expand and improve Crimespace. Also glad you credited David Bowie for the Ch Ch Changes line - he's one of my all-time favorites! As a painter, back in 1973 I created an erotic geodesic dome where people could crawl inside and see paintings of Bowie, Iggie Stooge, and various X-rated scenes.
