Fimfiction Staff

Without dedicated staff on hand, Fimfiction would be a ship (heh) without a crew, destined to crash at any time on a rocky shore. The guys below all contribute in various ways to making sure the site stays functional throughout the day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Oh, and please don't bug us about being on the staff team at the moment, we're always on the look out for good members to pick up when we need new people!

So, I can't change the color of my avatar header. Is that a bug or something?

#562 · 4d, 19h ago · · ·


Well, it'll be dozens of small chunks, each a few lines long, and with a few paragraphs of traditional narrative between each chunk.

#561 · 5d, 3h ago · · ·


So long as its isolated to a single scene out of the entire story and doesn't take up a significant portion of the overall wordcount then sure.

Quick question about story rules:

I know chat logs are not allowed in a story, but what about fictional chat logs where two characters from the story are chatting online? The chat logs wouldn't be a large proportion of the story by word count - they'd be less than 20% of the total - but for this story they're an important device, and reveal crucial parts of the storyline.

And as I say, they're fictional logs where both sides of the conversation would be written by me.

I'm trying to add a story to a group, but when I click the "add to group" button, I don't get any results no matter what I type in the search bar. Am I doing something wrong, or is the adding to group feature broken?

#556 · 1w, 2d ago · · 1 ·

Can I get a quick clarification on a rule?

[Don't Post] “Rewrites” of an old story posted as a new story, unless the changes are substantial. If you are not rewriting your story from the ground up, please just edit your changes into the original story.

I have been working for the better part of two years on an overhaul of a fic I posted a long time ago and never completed.  Is there some sort of litmus test for what can be posted as a 'new' story in this instance?  Based on word-count estimates, just taking the previously published portions into account, about 40% of the content of the story is completely new, 40% is rewritten, but still similar, and 20% of it is essentially the previous text (a few scenes I wanted to preserve with only minor edits and was happy with as-is).

Since I completely understand the purpose of this rule, I'm just curious if I can post this as a new story, or if I need to use my 3+ year old story and basically nuke / republish the chapters.

Also, if I can post it as a new story, would it be acceptable to delete the old one?

>>1521 Yes. Mods, admins, and story approvers.

#553 · 1w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

Can staff other than the story approvers approve stories?

#552 · 1w, 3d ago · · ·

Regarding the last update, many people feel that there stories will only be hurt by hiding the scores, but many feel it shouldnt be changed at all.

Perhaps It has already been suggested, but in This thread I had the ingenious idea to make this new feature optional. So the author has the choice to show votes early, but can keep them hidden until 15 if they wish. Everybody wins!

I'm currently looking for a story. Octavia and Celestia are the characters. I don't know the NAME of the story, but remember it, since I read it once. It's where Celestia fools Octavia into doing a private concert for her, when in reality, Celestia's using Octavia as a throne. Do ANY of you remember the name of that story?

>>1517 I just told you I saw my story without my filter on. :ajbemused: So, no, it doesn't make sense. :facehoof: It has been showing up without the filter this whole time (just not in the module). This is why I am confused. :applejackunsure: You know what? Forget it. :ajbemused: I'll just try to avoid the overly-disgusting fanfics. :rainbowderp: Have a nice day. :pinkiesmile:


#549 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


Yes, because your story is rated Mature. If you turn the Mature filter on, the site will assume you don't want to see things that are rated Mature right now and hide it from you. You can, of course, turn it off if you want to edit or deal with your Mature stories.

#548 · 1w, 4d ago · · 3 ·

>>1514 No, it wouldn't. 'Cause if I can't see my own story, I wouldn't be able to edit it. :ajbemused: That is how this site works, apparently (at least that's what it seems like). Also: I could see my story just fine when I didn't have the filter on. What you just said made no sense. :facehoof:


#547 · 1w, 4d ago · · 3 ·

>>1513 That's dumb, but ok. :ajbemused:


#546 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


The Mature filter is currently built with the assumption that you absolutely don't want to see Mature content while it's on. It'd be kind of weird if you turned on a switch designed to filter out Mature content, but a story you wrote about Twilight Sparkle getting tentacle raped by a squid was still staring at you.

That said, there are some updates to the site's filtering system in the works that should make it easier to implement more granular filters, so that issue might clear up whenever knighty/Xaq manage to get it running.

#545 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


The filter applies to every single story on this site. Don't write mature stories if you expect to see them with a mature filter on.

#544 · 1w, 4d ago · · 3 ·

>>1511 Not looking in the right spot? :rainbowhuh: Is that a joke? :ajbemused: And my mature filter is on for a reason. I should be able to see my own story, regardless. :facehoof:


#543 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


You're either not looking in the right spot, too impatient, or your mature filter is on.

Why can't I see my latest story in my "Latest Stories" module on my profile page? :facehoof: I'm really not in the mood for glitches. :ajbemused:

Alright, well someone on staff should really test using an iOS device. It is a common platform these days.

#536 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·


GFlex w/ android 4.4.2 and chrome 43.something

#535 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·


Thank you.

#534 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·


Which device are you using? I was testing on an iPhone5s using latest 8.4 build.

#533 · 2w, 2m ago · · ·


Stories users have liked that have also liked the story you're reading right now.


Mobile is iffy for certain areas of the site which don't format properly on mobile such as the FAQ, but PMs work fine for me on my phone, so it's likely browser/device dependent.

Why is the text rendering for PM's cut off for an iPhone in landscape? It's okay in porterate and it looks like the rest of the site works just fine in landscape.

#530 · 2w, 17h ago · · ·

So, the little tabs in the sidebar that link you to other stories; "Also Liked" / "Similar" / "Author"

"Similar" is pretty straight forward and "Author" is obvious, but how does the "Also Liked" tab work?What criteria does it use to present the stories it does?

I'd like to know what MrSp33dy123 is currently doing offline. I need his help with this concept.

>>1478 The new cover art uploading thing is broken in quite a few browsers. Recent versions of Firefox and Chrome seem to work okay.

#526 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

When I try putting cover art on my story it doesn't appear

#525 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·


Yush. Lots of people around here have alts.

Though if you use it to evade a ban or block, or if you use it upvote/favorite your stories or otherwise game the system, you'll likely end up getting your account banned.

#524 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

Maybe it's just my device, but it seems that all day today, the newly created stories haven't really changed at all. Do you have people working on this, or is there some upload break or holiday or something I missed? Just asking. :twilightsmile:

not sure what is going on this morning the user page seams to be a little off.

my top 5 row 1 will only show 2  row 2 only sows 3 row 3 only shows 4.

it all most looks to be a java script error or a up date from the  host side that kind of failed.

How do I read anything!! The setup confused me.

Can I make a second account?

#519 · 2w, 5d ago · · ·


Yeah, I guess it's not that big of a deal, but it's weird because it still allows me to change the header color on my main account.

#518 · 2w, 5d ago · · ·


I have the same question, but I stopped worrying about it, really.

#517 · 2w, 6d ago · · ·


Because knighty doesn't give a fuck.
