Next year, I will be hosting a Hall of Fame Awards. These will be strictly for members who have stories on the archive, date ending 31/12/2016.
Gluttony is owned and operated solely by myself. I am trying to get new authors to the site, but without any other staff members and having limited time myself, it is hard to run this archive or even restore it to its former glory.
I am calling for members or newbies to help with Gluttony again. It's all voluntary work, in your own time and you get a say as to how Gluttony works, the direction its heading, adding new categories and/or fun things to do while enjoying our fandoms. If you think you'd like to have a go, you are more than welcome to apply here: Staff Application Form
You do need to be registered at Temperance for the form to work. Otherwise, you can email me at: admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com.
I have added in the reason for Gluttony's strict ToS and Site Rules. I, in no way, want to restrict anyone's creativity. However, I must also be aware of laws and guidelines for hosting this site.
Why is there a MA18+ Rating, but erotica/porn/smut is not allowed?
I live in Australia with Australian hosting. I must abide by the laws implemented in the country that I reside. I must abide by my hosts Acceptable Use Policy: Sections 1, points B and C:

With the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I have added a Cursed Child category under Next Gen, and a Spoiler warning.
I'll be adding in more responsive skins which are mobile device friendly. I apologise for the header, I'm playing around with designs so these will change.
Hello my fellow HP writers/readers,
We mourn a man who bought one of our favourite characters to life. Although Alan Rickman played many characters during his career, it is Severus Snape that we will remember him for in our HP community.
To honour this man, I have featured Severus Snape related stories. If I have missed any or if you feel one should be featured, let me know and I will add it.
Gluttony will go through a skin change. I'm adding some responsive themes. This will also help the site work better on mobile devices.
If you find any glitches, let me know :)
Hi everyone :)
There may be a slight down time on the site. I'm transferring my domain and sometimes these can take time to re-establish.
I apologise for the down-time on the site. Mostly I am back up and running again, but there are a few glitches I'm still fixing. Some menus are double - I'm trying to fix those now. If you encounter any other issues, please comment below or email me: admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com
I'll be updating the archive over the next day or so. Please be patient with me in case the install doesn't go well. All your stories are protected, and the database is backed up for reviews.
The forums are closed. I may re-start them from scratch as no-one is really accessing the forums anymore.
I had to roll the database back to the 6th of July. If any information was lost in the rollback, I do apologise.
EDIT 19/07/2014: All story files are safe, but the skins are not reflecting the story updates. Anything submitted to the archive between 06 July 2014 - 12 July 2014 (6 days) will need to be re-submitted.
EDIT 20/07/2014: Because I'm an idiot and didn't back-up the database before going through and deleting old, inactive accounts with no stories, I had to roll back to the database last backed up on the 17th of July 2014. I'm going to put myself to bed now and leave the database alone for tonight before I break my site completely :( I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.
I'll be doing a database clean-up on the 19th and 20th of July. Anyone who hasn't logged in to the site in the last two years will be deleted. The only exception to this will be if you are an Author on the site (1+ stories).
If you want your membership to stay, then please log in to the
site so I do not delete you.
Due to spamming on the site, I?ll be doing regular clean-ups of the database and installing measures to prevent this from happening. If you do find any spam on the site, please report it ASAP so I can commence IP Banning and delete the user.
If you are a member of this section of Gluttony, I will announce updates to the archive here :) If you are interested in posting your stories there, then please email me.
Hi everyone :)

Please make sure you also check your spam filters and that admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com is added to your allowed list :) If you have any issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Welcome to our new members and thank you to Zenzao for sharing your story with us :) Gluttony has slowed down lately, but I'm trying to get interest back to this site. It's just me who runs Gluttony and its been hard to compete with bigger sites. Hopefully I can poke some of the older members to pop back in to read and review.
As I'm now a super fan of the book Divergent by Veronica Roth, I'll be opening up Gluttony to Divergent Fan Fiction :)
The forum is now set up, ready for the P.I. Awards :) Nominations will commence from October 1 and run for two weeks. Voting will then be open for the nest week when the winners will be announced and your awards handed out.
I managed to restore an old back-up of Temperance, so I recovered past awards and memberships for the P.I. Awards.
With October fast approaching, the P.I. Awards will be open once again. If you have not already done so, please sign up to the forum for nominations and voting. Don't forget that the Restricted Section is also open, if you wish to join please email me at: admin[at]gluttonyfiction[dot]com. Also, to get everyone rejuvinated, I'm also starting a few new things around Gluttony. There will be weekly awards to grab for stories and reviewers and a few fun things to do to help write and promote your own work. Keep your eyes open as news will be updated on the site. I know it has been quiet lately, as my real life has caught up with me, but I love the fact that Gluttony does have its small community of writers.
The Restricted Section is now open. Please contact me if you would like access.
The Pure Indulgence Awards is coming back this year. New Awards will be created, so get your stories updated, host your new works and poke your friends to join Gluttony and Temperance. The awards will be hosted during the month of October. So its time to get people excited now :)
