Right now i am pretty young, still a high school student. Just this school year I had told some of my friends that I was gay. The first was a friend who I considered a sister. We were pretty close since we lived next to each other for three years and knew almost everything about each other.
I have just enabled the URL aliasing feature for new posts and users on Oasis Magazine. It's a subtle thing, but it's an important usability feature.
What this means is that when you post new content, the link won't be just 'node/[some big number]', but instead it will be '[year]/[month]/[title]'.
Users will also be linked as 'user/[user name]' instead of 'user/[user id]'. If you have strange characters in your user name, your profile link might look slightly odd however. It is best to choose a user name without spaces, for instance. Profiles are still only visible to members, so your personal information is still not being indexed by google.
As there is a lot of content on Oasis, it will take a couple of days for friendly urls to be created for all the old content. The old links will still work, so you don't have to worry about that =).
We are edging ever closer to the relaunch of Oasis Magazine. So stick around =)
I've created a secret coupon code just for my Oasis customers. If you go to my online store (www.patnelsonchilds.com) and order my new Fantasy novel, Orphan's Quest, be sure to enter the word oasis in the Coupon Code field during checkout. This code will take 15% off of your entire order, whether you choose the softcover, the hardcover or are ordering multiple copies. This code will be good for the rest of the year, but the year is rapidly drawing to a close, so order your autographed copy soon to take advantage of your secret savings!
I've made a small configuration change to the site, which allows you to assign any number of keywords to your posts.
If you fill in these tags, you will be able to find other posts by people who are writing about the same things (example being homework, music, coming out etc.)
The new Oasis Magazine relaunch is getting real close now =).
