Like gold, the beauty and poise of a strong woman is timeless. Check out a brand new skin called PureGold featuring an iconic and beautiful woman of colour; Queen Nefertiti. It has all the new features we've come to love, but, it also retains some original chamber features you may have missed!
Enjoy it, ladies!
So take a look!
1. Print story/chapter to word. On each story you should see a little word icon, which will enable you to print directly to word. (pdf is not possible at this time). Now, it seems the icon was always there, but likely didnt work as the module was never installed. It has now been activated and a quick test has it working for me.
2. Added a story tracker. As close as I can manage for bookmarking your place in stories at the moment. You can access your tracked stories via the browse menu (and the Tracked Stories in the Tis season menu). So far it is in only one skin, Tis The Season (which is serving as my tester skin for experimental stuff). On the right you should see a little option for track/stop track this story, and last read on date. Not really sure if this is working properly, so if people could try it and let me know, if it is working, I can then add it to all the skins, so you should have access to it everywhere.
3. Added a recommendation module which can be accessed via the browse option in the menu. If this proves popular, we can get it in the main menu as well. It will allow recommending off-site fics.
4. Would like to have a member suggested featured section of stories, maybe 5 or so, rotated each month/fortnight/whenever displayed on the front page. Good or bad idea?
5. Contact author is still broken and it looks like it will require a script upgrade and I can't do that just yet until the changeover is complete and have full access to everything. It is on my to-do list though and hopefully will get it fixed soon.

Sun-Hwa Kwon is one of the middle section survivors of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815. Born into the powerful Paik family of Seoul, Korea, Sun was a child of wealth and privilege. She married Jin-soo Kwon, the son of a fisherman that she'd grown to love, only to have him grow distant when he began to work for her father. She planned to leave him after a business trip in Sydney, Austraila, only to have a last minute change of heart, which led her to board the doomed flight with her husband.
Stranded on a mysterious tropical island along with several other castaways, Sun was initially isolated from the others by Jin. She eventually began to assert herself, becoming an important contributor to the lives of the survivors.
This month, The Chamber wants our members to take a break from routine. We’re asking authors to post a story that incorporates something you’ve never done before. It’s time to write that genre you’ve wanted to try, that new show you’ve never tackled, or a heroine that’s unlike any you’ve created before. Or maybe your something new is posting that first story and finally becoming a Chamber author.
Fanfic or original, it’s up to you. Just make sure there’s something readers can’t find in your previous work. We’re breaking new ground here at The Chamber. Are you ready for the challenge?
