Hey there,

I've been lining up a team for the NaNo Boot Camp. One of our prolific author team mates is visually impaired and uses specialized equipment to view the site. Though she never was able to access the chatrooms, we managed to make the old site work, but haven't tried anything on the new site. If someone could provide some info as to how the new site should work for her, it'd be much appreciated as we try getting her set up.
Thanks!

Hi Tamsen,

I am so sorry for the delay in my reply. I will check into this and email you privately. :)

Hi Tamsen! Do you have room on your Nano team for me? I'm not a LGTB writer but I was on your team 2 years ago. I'm not sure where we are setting up teams in the new forums?

Hi Heidi! Yes, I remember! Nice to see you again!
I'm pretty sure I will! I've got three signed on so far. And our group so far is mixed- you'll probably remember Barbara (Sci-Fi/Paranormal genres)- I'm doing YA this time; my writing coach June (not sure what genre she's covering for NaNo), and Connie, whom I've recruited to Savvy, who is doing m/m.
Just waiting for a check-in from my Beth Barany Plan Your Novel group to see if there are any takers, but only one or two expressed interest earlier, so I'm sure I'll have room! If I don't hear back from them by tomorrow evening, I'll confirm with you just in case. Pretty sure the teams allowed six members and up last year. Thanks for asking!

Hi all,

FYI: The teams are going to be different this year--ten members exactly--no more, no less.

See you there.

Tami, let me know how things work out for Barbara. Hope the new site works better.

Hey, Lyn,
Where do we post our teams on the new site? And is there a sign up link we should share with others?

Thank you!
Kathleen

Hi Lyn

Tried to access the Team Prep but it says I'm not authorized to do so.

Can you let me know if there's a non-fiction group available? Thanks.

Doctor Charley...

Hi Dr. Charley,
This forum was 2015.
The new NANO forums are not finished.
Check out registration for NaNo Bootcamp at the link. Then you'll be notified when forums are open. There may be a non-fiction group or a mixed group. We also had a BDSM group.
We don't know until we see interest in themes. It's more organic in set-up.
NaNoWriMo.org is on a separate site. It's free to join but they do ask for donations.

I tried to rework the last link again.
See if that helps.

Hi all! I am signed up for the NaNo Bootcamp but don't seem to be authorized here on the new forums. Ran into this the last time SA got new site/forums, so I'm assuming it's just a database permissions thing?

Injgrrl,
Can you submit a support ticket email?

That's really a tech issue.

If I do it for you, it will increase the turn around time.

Leslie,
Most of this thread was 2015.
Dr Charley chanced upon it when she tried to get into the forums which are currently being made.
She hasn't signed up yet.
We were talking about it in her class this week. :D
So only Dr. Charley is affected by the post.
