We've seen very little discussion of proposed changes, and that's a
big surprise. Please take a moment to look this discussion over and
comment we want members to understand, comment and vote on
changes to HASA's rules. If members don't participate, it will all be
up to the admins, and that is exactly what we want avoid. This is a
community, and playing "police" all the time is very wearing - we've
lost several admins partly for that reason.
Do you want HASA to run smoothly? Then help us update the rules we
will all live by in our community.
Take a look at the proposed Code of Conduct changes and participate in
the poll about those changes!

assistant and am currently coordinating Birthday Cards."

Those stories were published in the Beta Stories Section to ask you
for feedback! Take the time to visit the discussions linked to those
stories and leave a comment or two about what you liked and where you
think something might still be improved!
Remember: if everyone wants a beta-reader and feedback, but no one is
prepared to do beta-reading or to provide feedback, the system won't
And HASA provides valuable resources to make beta-reading easy and
