I saved the oldest version in a Word document, so don't worry, I didn't erase it all from existence.

As far as I can tell, you have the option to credit multiple authors on the front cover and in the copyright notice, but unfortunately I don't think they have a way to split the revenue between multiple parties.

I found a person on the Lulu forums who was asking the same thing, and the response was that the best way to do it would be to have an outside contract, and one person would receive all of it directly from Lulu and distribute it offline.

Sounds workable, and if we don't find any alternatives, that's not an awful way of doing it. That said, we're so far from publishing that it's not really worth thinking too hard about.

Labor day is coming up soon, which seems like a good time to try and converge to do a little editing. I can understand if you guys can't though.

I start college the day after Labor Day, and I still have no idea what my workload is going to be. It might be a few more weeks before I can get into regular editing again.

The only chance I have is seeing if it's on the hard drive I use to back up my computer. If it's not there, I'm fucked.

HOLY **** I FOUND IT, PRAISE BE TO JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY

That scared the **** **** out of me. Imagine what it felt like when you lost a post, and now imagine LOSING AN ENTIRE RP. It turns out I have two files with the exact same name in different folders. "Bay City" is an old version in the actual Bay City folder in my Documents folders, and "Bay City" is the new version that I put in another folder labeled "Stuff" for some reason.

Hilariously enough, I was listening to music on shuffle, and this song started playing when I thought I lost it.

I can't even edit it anymore, because my laptop battery is about to die at school, lol. Thank **** I found it.

I'm guessing you went ahead and changed the name and made a second copy of it, lol.

Yeah, and I put it on a USB along with all of the C3O stories I have on my computer, rofl.

Oh man, if I were in that position I'd lose my **** lmao. I'm pretty sure I was the one who recommended we start backing the stories up in case Saxon pulls the plug on the forum, the idea of losing any of our content had me terrified until we had everything backed up repeatedly.
