Announcing Upcoming Changes to our ToS
We’re really looking forward to presenting you with the finished product, it’s been a long time coming, and we are confident each and every delay on the launch date will be worth every extra week spent on the platform.
One of the big changes that we’re working on is rethinking the entire play-by-post role-playing process by breaking down all the barriers that stop you from exploring the setting’s limits. That means giving you more opportunities to collaborate or write solo stories depending on what your heart is set on.
We’re also looking at new ways to allow you to present and showcase the stories you’re working on to your friends and the rest of the community. These will all be core features of the new website we’re working on.
New Worlds Project as your publisher…
Another aspect that we’re changing through this Reboot is a commitment to help you finish your stories and for them to be a part of anthologies that we would like to release to the public for purchase each year. We’re planning to institute a royalties programme so that each and every one of us gets a chance to be recognised for the quality sci-fi stories we’ve worked on for the last decade.
We’re calling our revolution a 360? Creativity experience which is what New Worlds Project will be all about moving forward. From inspiration, to execution, to completion – our community is all about tapping into our sci-fi Asimov potential and nurturing it.
What that means for you the user…
