If you have tried to create a user profile recently and gotten an error, your profile may nevertheless have been created.
Some users have pointed out that there appears to be a problem with the user signup process. The system reports that "the user profile could not be created due to an unknown error.". Despite this message, it seems that the user profile is usually (depending on the settings) created without problems.
I will of course look into this problem as soon as I get a chance and post an update here when I get it working again.
This is the beta version of Aphorisms Galore! 2.0. "2.0" means that a lot has changed -- in fact, almost everything has been entirely rebuilt from the ground up to accommodate the site's growing popularity (which has been causing some stability problems lately) and to make it possible to create new and more advanced features. "Beta" means that everything is not in place yet, and that there may be bugs lurking in the shadows.
The biggest news so far is the Forums section, which lets you participate in discussions on a large number of different topics. You can discuss categories, authors and even individual aphorisms, as well as books and other products in the upcoming Shopping section.
The Aphorisms Galore! Shop opens, making it easier to find the best deals on books and other items associated with various aphorisms.
The script that sends out the Aphorism of the Day and the Aphorism of the Week is currently not working. I am working on this problem and hope to have solved it soon.
Aphorisms Galore! was temporarily out during Thursday and Friday but is now back up. No user profiles or other data were lost.
A new search options page that lets you search only certain categories, choose matching modes, and more.
The first few pages have been included in the "Help" section. More will follow. And the home page has a new and better layout.
Through a co-operation with Alphabetstreet, Aphorisms Galore! now also offers the possibility of buying books in pounds sterling.
Aphorisms Galore! now works with Amazon.com to let users easily buy books mentioned on the site.
The Aphorisms Galore! Personal Edition is now open! Create your profile, select your favorite categories, and easily stay on top of additions to the Aphorisms Galore! database.
I haven't been very good at updating this page recently. Two new categories have been created: Health and Disease and Food and Drink. Also, I have begun to add new aphorisms to the database again. The Personal section will open within the next week.
The search engine finally works! Try it from the home page.
The Art and Literature category.
The results are in from the User Survey.
A user survey that will help me improve the site. Please take a minute to answer a few questions and help make Aphorisms Galore! a better place.
Aphorisms Galore! moves to a new server and gets its own domain name. The move has required a fair amount of preparations, which is my excuse for the infrequent updates lately. Improvements and new features to come.
Aphorisms Galore! passes the 1,000 aphorisms mark -- and my sources are far from exhausted yet. My thanks to all the people who have contributed their favorite sayings.
Two new entries in the "Zoom In" section: "Loved and Lost" and "W.O.P.R."
A new category, Wisdom and Ignorance.
