Some times you have to make hard choices and I've had to do that this week. I never like letting writers go, but if they cannot commit properly to a series without giving me any real reasons then I have to put the site first. I will never ask anything of anyone that I won't do myself. The way I see it is simple - if I can hold a full time job, have time for my social life and write an issue or two for the site and find the time to post it, then I don't see why people cannot write at least one issue a month. I know people have problems in their lives and that fanfic at the end of the day is a hobby to entertain readers and writers alike, but I like to be told what's going on because when promises are broken repeatedly it's no good for either the site or the morale of the writers, because the ones who do work feel put out.
So there will be some changes to the advertised programme in the next week or so, but that's the way it goes.
