|We need your help!|
We have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that the Critique Circle website will need to be completely rewritten in order to survive. The good news is that we can do it, with your help!
We are asking for your help in the form of a one time donation to make this happen.
Please use this link if you can contribute. Read the blogs below for some information about the rewrite.
Thank you very much. Together we will see CC grow far into the future.

Queue switch-over time changed
During the server move CC''s clock was set to UTC instead of PST and as a consequence queues will switch over to a new period 7 hours earlier than previously. At midnight UTC on Tuesday evening (Tuesday 5pm PST) the next round of stories will come up for review.
This means that if you live in the US and are used to writing crits on Tuesday evening just before the switch you will need to adjust.
If you do submit a late crit, that''s no problem like always. Just send a note to the moderators and we will add the credits. To make things easier there is now a link on the crit receipt page to get full credit for a late crit.

Tools and features removed
As the first phase of rewriting CC the following tools and features are in the process of being removed:
Word of the day
Saved data (from grammar etc)
Hangman and word morph games
Other features will be removed as time progresses and we make our way towards a slimmer, easier to migrate Critique circle. Please let us know if you encounter any issues.
