Probably not.

Is there perhaps some way to see the story approval queue? I'm curious to see how long I'm going to have to wait further still for my fiction to be approved. I mean no offense, or to sound like I'm acting unappreciative, but I'm just anxious, that's all.

I'll be happy because this is my 3rd story, so I'll no longer have to go through the whole story approval wait and process.

Sometimes a story will be checked in just a few hours, sometimes it might even take a few days.  This blog of Meeester's explains some of the common reasons why some stories have a longer wait in the submission queue than others.

Quick question, how long can it take to get a fic approved? my fic has been waiting for approval for about 3 days now, its my first fic so I don't know how long it usually takes to get a fic approved

When Knighty's happy with it.

>>2517 Any idea when that next big patch is going to come through?

#935 · 2w, 1d ago · · 4 ·

So I was reading the chase earlier, and and while looking at it, I noticed something. It's the 2nd longest story, which is strange, because I went to browse and longest, but there wasn't one above it. So I wanted to ask, is there a longer one that isn't published, or is it just an error or something?

You can submit with one chapter published, so long as that one chapter meets the minimum requirements for fimfic, yes.

#933 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·


Quick question. I have an unsubmitted story that has around 16 chapters. Is it possible to only submit one chapter in one go to a mod?

#931 · 3w, 2d ago · 2 · ·

Have you guys ever considered adding a feature to automatically filter out stories based on certain tags?

For instance, if I didn't want to see any stories about Trixie or about Adventure, I could add those tags to a blacklist.

Then stories with those tags wouldn't show up on the front page, featured box, groups, etc.

It would be a really nice quality of life thing.

#930 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·


Yeah, I've got a google Doc with 33+ stories on it, and I don't know if they are eligible for this site.

their not really...finished. not most of them anyway. But some are.

Could I just make a story tab called "The Vidaverse" and just add everything to that regardless of if its finished or not?

You're just going to have to wait.

>>2517 if it can be implemented I would really appriciat it, I don't suppose you could edit out  some could you?

I believe that's one of the QoL changes coming up in the next big patch.

Don't quote me on that, though.

#926 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2514 I don't suppose the voting system could be modified so that downvotes can be undone can they? not by authors on  their own stories, but by readers that changed their mind and just want to remove their two cents from a story.

No tags have been added recently because the tagging system is being completely reworked.  Once that is complete, there will be no issues.




Best send a PM to one of the moderators.  Be sure to include the following information:

File type

File size

What machine you're trying to upload it with (Phone, desktop, tablet, etc.)

Which browser

Any error messages you receive.

I'm having trouble setting a picture as my cover art.  It's pretty big but no matter how small I make it it won't load.

#923 · 4w, 1d ago · · ·

Hi, Can anypony help me with some eligibility questions?

#922 · 5w, 2d ago · 1 · ·

Is there any chance we'll get some missing character tags? I think there were plans some time ago but that kinda died. Most, if not all of these seem useful, and I personally could really use the Shadowbolts and Sirens group tags as well as Cinch. I can always just mark Cinch as "other", but it's difficult to fit in the 5 character tag limit when a story is supposed to feature all 5 Shadowbolts and all 3 of Sirens equally.

#921 · 5w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2498 You can't.

#920 · 5w, 6d ago · · ·

Is there a way that deleted comments could be undeleted?

#919 · 7w, 18h ago · 1 · 1 ·


Try making sure that option to get them in your email is checked.

Its under user setting, I think.

#918 · 7w, 18h ago · · ·

Quick question and I don't mean to bother any of you but could you guys help me figure out why both my sent PM's and received PM's are not going to my gmail inbox. I mean I have my account settings set to where they should go to my inbox but none of them have been sent to my inbox since either last Tuesday or last Wednesday. Again not receiving any of my sent or received PM"s in my gmail inbox and I hope you can help me.

#917 · 7w, 1d ago · · ·

Hi, I'm sorry to bother you all. I'm sure you're very busy and this is probably just me worrying too much, but did my story make it to the moderating queue? It's my first story so I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong as it's been a long while since I sent it for moderation. Sorry for the trouble.

#916 · 7w, 1d ago · · ·

Okay, I'll admit it. I have no idea if this is where I should go for what just happened. If this isn't, please let me know, and, if possible, tell me where I should go.

I recently was typing up a PM to a user here and spent a decent amount of time on it in addition to including some emotional outpouring. When I tried to send the message, I got the Error (0) Request Failed notification. The PM kept saying "sending" and I couldn't see the actual message. I looked up my "Sent" messages to see if it was there, and it wasn't.

Long story short, I tried to send a deeply heartfelt message only for it to get lost between the ones and zeroes. :flutterrage: :fluttercry:

Is there any way to retrieve it, or rectify this issue? Or should I just start copying/pasting long messages to save them?

Thank you for your time, effort, and dedication.


#915 · 7w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2484 I think reporting it would be wise. That way a moderator could dictate the severity and act accordingly.

#914 · 7w, 3d ago · · ·

If someone posts a comment on one of my stories, with links to NSFW images, should I just delete the comment? I have left a reply warning them, but would rather not get into trouble over it.

#913 · 7w, 5d ago · · ·


Thank you.

#912 · 7w, 5d ago · · ·


We'll look into it.

#911 · 7w, 5d ago · · ·

I'm currently having an issue with changing my email. I got a new one and I tried to change it to the new one but it cut it off so instead of .com it's just .c. This of course isn't an email so I can't get the verification email. I tried fixing this but it wouldn't let me. I tried changing it back to my old one but it wouldn't let me. It seems to be stuck in this new one.

Who should I contact about this?

#910 · 7w, 6d ago · · ·

Sorry to trouble you.

Not sure where to take this, but I've noticed that when I use the handy 'download chapter' buttons the site provides, any author's notes at the end of the chapter are removed.  I'd quite like to be able to save them with it, as they often contain useful information.

Admittedly, I can fix this with copy-paste, but I could also save the whole chapter that way, which rather defeats the point of having 'download chapter' buttons.

#909 · 8w, 1d ago · 1 · ·


That's fine.


Have him send an email to

#908 · 8w, 1d ago · · ·

Greetings, staff. I am messaging on behalf of a dear friend of mine who seems to have encountered a major issue.

My friend is trying to sign in, however, he has forgotten both his password and username. Inputting the email into the password recovery claims there is no account with the email, and trying to create one says the email is used.

He is most distraught, so he asked me to speak to you on his behalf. Any help you can provide would be most helpful.

Thank you for your time.

#907 · 8w, 2d ago · · ·

Hi all, sorry to bother you.

I'm wondering about adding cover art to a story. It looks like many stories use a screenshot from a MLP episode as cover art; just to confirm, is that ok for me to do? Or does that run afoul of copyright restrictions?

#906 · 8w, 3d ago · · ·

Hi! Um, this is kinda awkward. A little while ago, I sent a message to a moderator to try to get some stories I deleted restored to the site, but some things have been worrying me.

Both stories were deleted a long time ago, and the site has been through several major revisions since then, so it seems possible they might no longer be in the database?

I'm also worried that I did something wrong in my initial request, like talking too formally, or a moderator needed more or different information than what I provided - namely a story ID number, and if the story went through a name change - I provided the name the story had when it was deleted, as that seemed sensible, but should it have been the name the story had when it was submitted?

Or am I overthinking all of this, and just need to sit down, be patient, and let the mods get to it when they get to it?

#905 · 8w, 4d ago · · 1 ·

Um, I think I found a bug.

Whenever I go to edit my stories, all of the text in the long description box is replaced with "sleepy panda".

Not really sure what's going on here...?

Edit: Was just a browser issue. Fixed now.

#904 · 10w, 1d ago · 1 · ·

>>2448 No problem :scootangel:

#903 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2447 hehe thanks. my bad.:twilightblush:

#902 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2446 Most likely, cause it would be considered spam follows. You need to space your following out

#901 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2445 :twilightblush: uh yeah... could that be it?

#900 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2444 did you try to follow loads of people one after another?

#899 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·

something is wrong with the follow system! i can't follow anyone!!

#898 · 11w, 3d ago · · ·

Hi there I'm new but I have been writing a chapter on a book for the first time I have 7,824 words and It won't let me publish it and I also have a short description.

#897 · 11w, 5d ago · · ·

Is there a forum\group where you can get help to improve a story that you can't get approved?

#896 · 11w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2433 There are two great ways to get better at writing. Like any skill, the best is to do it, just write. Try and get somepony else to look at it and critique it. The other way is to read, read read read, though more formal fiction is a better bet than fanfiction, it will give you a better feel for how things should be done, or could be done.
