For Parents, Teachers and School Administrators
In the first part of 2012, we’ll be releasing the first set of sharing features, allowing one to share writing privately and securely. This means, students can submit writing assignments to their teachers and professors all from within Yarny. (We’ll be talking more about how all writers can use the new sharing and collaboration features when we release them in the first part of 2012).
If you are a student; a parent or guardian of a student; or a teacher, professor, or administrator please help us spread the word. Sometimes, school administrators need to talk to us before they approve the use of Yarny. Just email us at email@example.com or call us at (01) 904-825-9900 with any questions.

Not that it would effect me much as I won November but was wondering if like Scrivener you would offering a discount to Camp winners as you did for November NaNo? I have told other campers about Yarny some having switched to using it so I thought It would be great if like in November if someone who didn't win in November won camp they could get the discount too. Also someone did posted in the Yarny thread on the nano site

Hi, I'm loving Yarny. I note that there haven't been any updates since February. Is Yarny still being actively maintained? Is there a community forum for Yarny anywhere (I couldn't find one via Google or on the Yarny homepage)? Is there still plans for offline support? And, finally, is there any plans to support Android via the Chrome Android browser or the default Android browser? I tried loading Yarny.me on my Galaxy Note (with its expansive 5.5" screen and it doesn't format correctly for the smaller screen). Thank you for building one of the most awesome writing apps I've seen/used (especially since I'm on Linux and every other writing app is either not available for Linux or totally UGLY)! I hope you're still maintaining and developing it because I could see myself using your app for many years to come. It would be *great* to get an update on where Yarny's at development-wise and what we can look forward to in the coming months.

Does Yarny scramble your Nano novel and send to Nano?
