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!

Hello i'm writing regarding the emoticons on fimfiction. I am inquiring as to why there isn't an emoticon of discord, a shrug , thumbs /claws up etc, you got down a lot of expressions but a few things are still missing. Just for the record i'm just a random person who decided to ask the question on a lot of our minds. Im also assuming you can affect this somehow, sooo.:eeyup:

Messaging Xaquseg directly is best for bugs. If you tell anyone else on staff or post to like this page or FAQ, we just end up telling Xaquseg anyway. Thanks.

Just to say I found something a bit strange in the stories HTML pages (the main page of any fanfic).

It seems the meta property describing the image location was supposed to be changed to HTTPS, but it now comes out as :

    <meta property="og:image" content="http:" />

It seems it changed recently, and on all stories I checked up until now.

I'll adapt my script, but I just wanted to let you know.

I hope it's the right page to notify somepony about this?

I miss the cover art they had on FimFiction a while ago :(

Hey, sorry to bother, but I wanted to ask something. When searching for fics in groups, it seems the view is limited to the "Card View" format. Is there any way to change that? I thought it'd be cool if in future updates, it could be changed so that the fic folders in group could be explored differently, even better if we could also then explore them by tags to maybe find fics involving the group's concept, but  for specific characters we're looking for. Just a thought to improve the site if anyone ever feels like it. Cheers!

So its ok to make an alt account to bypass being blocked?

No, that's definitely not ok.  You should report that kind of alt abuse.

First of all, hi there! :D

I see you can hardly even handle the english language, let alone your own emotions and feelings. Nice job blocking me— shows what little you can actually handle in terms of social interactions. I'm guessing you decided that maturing and growing up weren't very important. You should probably rethink that decision. If you did not make the conscious decision to avoid growing up, then I simply feel sorry for your vast ignorance, and of course, your difference in mental capabilities compared to other users of this website.

This is the end of our dealings together. I'm sorry that you're not yet a valuable human being in any possible sense. But hey!— maybe someday, if you put the effort in.

One of your ads at the moment is for a known malware... May want to look into who you are using for ads (doesn't look like google ads).

EDIT: Just got another one, pic showing it...

Note, border of image and 'ok' button flash.

EDIT2: And another

Alright. This is just a little gripe of mine, nothing of too much significance, but I'll ask it anyway:

        Why did the gosh darn banners get removed? They were there when I first visited the site back in December of 2014, and I loved them! Why were they removed?

And will they ever come back? Please make them come back. Please? Please, please, please, please, please?

How do I get access to the auto-approval method after hitting 2 stories?

#877 · 3w, 1d ago · · ·


That doesn't look like an attack blog.

Normally by the author (or editors, pre-readers, etc.) reading it before it gets approved.

#875 · 3w, 2d ago · · ·

How can a story get 12 views before it gets approved by moderation exactly?

Something seems to be wrong with the Favorites in my Library. The number of supposedly unread chapters keeps going up, but when I click on it, it just takes me to a blank page. When I check my favorites for recently updated, it shows that I'm all caught up. But it still says "Library (10)" as if there were unread chapters. Can anyone help?

#872 · 4w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2365 Can't say I'm surprised, but I had to ask just in case... :applejackunsure:

Thank you anyway.

#871 · 4w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2364 Unfortunately, unless you added it to a bookshelf or favorites list, you won't have it saved anywhere for ease of access.

#870 · 4w, 2d ago · · ·

Is there a way for me to see all the stories I'd at least began reading? In other words, when I read (or at least click on) a chapter, the checkbox next to it is checked; can I somehow list all the stories that have at least one chapter checked?

#869 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2362 thanks man

#868 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2361 Automatically.

#867 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2360 thanks man. I have one more question. When I upload a ne chapter for that story, does it also have to be approved or does it go in automatically?

#866 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·



Generally, it'll take from a couple hours, to over a day to post, depending on the story. If it's one the approvers have to discuss if it follows the posting rules or not, it'll take longer. Also, if there are a lot of new stories in the queue, it'll take longer. However, once you hit two stories, and are allowed use of the auto-approval method, it's almost instant.

Just hang in there.

#865 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2357 I have the same question, just submitted something for the first time and don't know how long it'll take to be approved.

#864 · 5w, 16h ago · · ·

This question is not very important, but how long does in normally take for a story to get submitted?

#863 · 5w, 2d ago · · ·

I've been having an issue with Favorites. For a while now, it says that I have unread chapters, but when I click on it, there's nothing to be seen. When I look at my Favorites for last updated, there's nothing new and I get no notices telling me that chapters have been updated. But the counter keeps going up. For almost a year it said Library (1). Since the changeover, that number keeps increasing. Now it's up to (8) but clicking on Unread Chapters just takes me to a blank page. Can you help?

#862 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2352 Well, I'm already taking any down voting personally because it keeps happening to me 90% of the time without any good reasons, but... you know, whatever.  I can kind of understand what you're saying, considering that for a similar reason, Facebook doesn't have dislike buttons.

#861 · 5w, 3d ago · 2 · ·



We are not going to make it difficult to vote on stories. There is no way to prove you read a story. All it would do is just lower the number of votes people cast; it won't change what they vote whatsoever. Same goes for removing anonymity from votes; people will either stop altogether or the authors will take every downvote personally and pick fights with those users.

And we don't police comment voting. Report users that harass you and include evidence.

#860 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2349 I know, but it would help if we knew who they were and report them for abuse.  No one deserves ill treatment without a good and sensible reason.

#859 · 5w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

Hey, people.  Okay, I got two questions I'd really like to have answered.  First off, this may be a little personal, but... who exactly do I turn to regarding possible stalking?  The reason I ask this is because I keep getting down votes on 90% of the comments I make here, some of which aren't even worth voting on at all or just down voted because someone might be abusing me as a user and not just because I might be spouting nonsensical crap.  And second, regarding what user ScratchnTavi brought up a couple of days ago, I think a staff member or two or whoever is in charge of development, programming, etc. should add something that allows users to see who exactly is giving positive or negative votes.  This is technically allowed on Facebook, so I don't see why this site can't allow it.  Because if some users are down voting others just for the hell of it, they should be reported for abuse.  No one should give up votes or down votes without a good reason or if a comment just isn't worth voting on.  If either of my questions could be addressed, I would be most grateful for your time.  Thank you.

#858 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·


There are always jerks around, sadly.

>>2336 Talking of down votes, I just seem to get them just because.

#856 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·

It'd seem my comment feel through the cracks, so I'll repost it:

Sorry to bother you folks, but I found the lack of any information regarding blocks placed on posting comments worrying. I've been apparently blocked from posting comments on a story, I admit some of my comments were rathet sarcastic, but the problem is that I've received no information about any block placed on me, I just found, upon writing a looooong comment on my cellphone (not fun if you want to avoid mistypes) and trying to post it, that I couldn't and all i got was the message "There was an error in the query". Thinking this to be a glitch in the site (afterall, I got no info about any block placed on me), I saved the comment in my previous comment (seemingly confirming that it was a glitch, since why would I be unable to post comments but able to edit them?), but then I found my comment deleated and a moderator (Meeester) accusing me of trying to circumvent a block via editing my previous comment.

My question is, how was I supposed to know that I was blocked from posting comments if I got not a single shred of information about it until after my comment was removed? And how could I be trying to intentionally circumvent it if I didn't know about it? I feel kinda like I'm in Kafka's book with such a complete lack of information.

Additionally, the author's editor insulted me personally in the content section, yet nothing came out of that, even though I'm quite sure that's against the rules.

#855 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·


Yeah, I think that was it.  The problem is fixed now.  Thanks for replying!

#854 · 5w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2343 Fair enough, will keep using pastebin for such things. Thanks for the reply!

#853 · 5w, 4d ago · · ·


No. "Previews" for patreon subs is no different from selling access to the chapter. If the story is on fimfic, you cannot share unpublished content outside of the editing process. Patreon previews are not part of the editing process.

#852 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2340 Yeah, I soon-after realized my mistake and fixed that, thanks though!

#851 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2333 Did you make sure the url has the http:// at the beginning? That gets me sometimes.

#850 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2337 Did you post your story into the long description box by accident? To properly post and publish your story, you need to go to the story page and select "new chapter", fill in a chapter title and post it there, then publish it.

Then it'd be ready for submission.

#849 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2338 The best way to preview upcoming content is to post it in a blog for your followers. Like, copy and paste a snippet of what you're writing into the blog. That way they can all read it.

#848 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

Hi there! Firstly, awesome site.

Okay, brown-nosing out of the way. The FAQ is a little ambiguous about it, so I thought I should ask before implementing it.

Can we use the 'preview unpublished chapters' feature to give some readers an early look at works that will be published (within a day) anyway? It specifically says we can't use it to sell access to unpublished content, but I wanted to give my patrons a sneak peek at upcoming stuff and don't want to have to go to, say, pastebin to do it (means my comments are all over the place, etc).

Well, and if not, is there any possibility of allowing such? Maybe enforce a timer to be set on them, so they will auto-publish regardless, so it truly is a preview and not a lock-out?

#847 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

Been trying to upload a story I wrote to

I've made sure everything is lengthy, my work is 2743 words long, the short description is 370 words, but.. it doesn't work it says that I need to make sure it's over 1000 words, and the short description is atleast 250..

How can I fix this?

#846 · 5w, 5d ago · · ·

Its time you guys think about a function that somepony CAN'T vote until they've read the story.

Most seem to do it for fun to downvote stories a second after they got published

#845 · 6w, 1d ago · · ·

please delete my accout, thank you

#844 · 6w, 1d ago · · ·

I'm trying to upload some pictures for a blog post and keep getting an error message for the url I provide.  I've even tried uploading the pictures to deviantart and it still doesn't work.

#843 · 7w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2316 Possibly. Make an offensive blog and get someone to report it.
