It looks like a lot of my planned 'gradual' changes for the site ended up getting bundled together leading us to another New Years release of Nexus Biographies. The site should be a lot more dynamic now and offer faster loading pages and other new features.
You can now keep track of the stories you have visited during each visit to the site. After viewing two of more stories a 'Previous Stories' link will appear at the top left of each story page allowing you to quickly look at what stories you have read and let you go back to them. You can even save this list for subsequent visits to the site. Simply open the toolbox and check off 'Store story history'.
The submission page has also been updated. Now when you submit a story you will get a preview of what was submitted.
These new features require a fairly modern browser. But never fear there is a 'Static' version of the site which should work on almost anything. This version should be familiar to people who have visited the site in the past year as it is very similar to the 2011 version of the site. If you want you can use this version of the site by clicking 'Static' in the toolbox.
So what about the future of the site? Well I'm getting ready to move on to my other site Chongun Haven to do some updates to it. However I do not want to leave Nexus Biographies behind. One change that I'd like to do is to make the site a bit more friendly to mobile browsers. So of the effects you get when mousing over stuff just don't happen with touch (I wonder why). The site is still perfectly usable on those new fangled devices but it could be a little more graceful.
So who knows how the site will progress from now. In any case new features really don't matter without fortifying what this site is really about, stories! So get submiting.
