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!

When a user creates multiple accounts to artificially inflate their stats (follower count, likes on stories, etc.) or negatively impact others (downvote spam, block evasion, etc.)

>>2212 Alt abuse? What's that?

Various ways.  If an account is deleted, or a moderator wipes their vote history, for example.  The latter often occurs when alt abuse is discovered.

Yes, it is possible.

Is it possible to literally lose a like?

Because this happened to me recently.

>>2202 Well, that sucks. Not that I'm surprised that there wouldn't be any thought spared for a minority.

#801 · 3d, 10h ago · · ·

Are things like this considered an abuse of the site's infrastructure? Because if not, they really should. This is the fifth time in three days I've run into something like this and it seems to me there need to be some ground rules set about public bookshelves and not using them to passively-aggressively insult people. :unsuresweetie:

Is there any chance — in the future — of a writer having the option to not have the like/dislike feature on a given story?

We've considered both adding more functionality to advertise Patreon accounts as well as a possible return of Project Wonderful ads, but neither of which are certain at all as they both have issues that have yet to be sorted. For the time being, the only option is just adding more information/images yourself to your Author's Notes.

>>2194

No voting or rule violations with alts; hey are a one-and-done sort of deal. Voting with alts or breaking rules with alts like ban/block evading will earn the account an immediate perma ban and a short temp ban for the main. Alts are tolerated for posting stories you don't want on your main.

#797 · 6d, 11h ago · · ·

Is there anything I need to know about making an alias account? The rules page said it was tolerated, but offered no real explaination on doing so without causing problems. I just don't want to accidentally do something to make the mods' lives difficult.

#796 · 6d, 22h ago · · ·

Any chance there could be a way to add a signature to all author notes blocks? As somepony supported by patreon, it would be awesome if I could poke that info in (along with the changing list of ponies I thank for supporting me) automatically.

Another thought, have a way for us to make our own 'banner ad' to be on each story. It obviously shouldn't replace one of the site's ads, but just be somewhere for authors to be able to put something that readers can see/click on.

So use the report button on every userpage, blog, and thread.

I need to report a harassment problem.

Sorry to bother you. I usually don't write here because I know how busy you are but now I guess it's time t bring this up.

Do any of you remember this? https://www.fimfiction.net/blog/559056/results-for-character-tag-survey

I bring this because the list itself is incomplete (we only have the genres) and it's from almost a half year ago. We are in season 6 right now and most of these need to happen.

How about this: the next two weeks we won't have a new episode. So how about you think about it in the meantime and then, when the date finally comes, we come to an agreement?

#790 · 2w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2173 No good. I tried with Chrome where I'd been using Firefox, and still no good. There's no problem with any other files. I grabbed Raise you like a Phoenix that just updated, and it worked fine. I'm using FBReader from the GooglePlay store. It only seems to be Earth and Sky that doesn't work.

#789 · 2w, 3d ago · · ·

Well after searching for the publish button on the main page of the story I found it on the chapter page.  What still frustrates me is the fact you need to publish on the chapter page specifically not the story page.  If there was a  little publish box to tick on the story main page next to the chapter link that would be nice.

Try downloading it again. It worked fine for me just now using Chrome to download and a basic epub reader app.

>>2172

You have to publish your chapters first.

#787 · 2w, 4d ago · · ·

Ok really I am frustrated here, for 3 days I have been trying to submit two newly finished stories I wrote.  Every time I push the submit button I get  a pop up explaining the auto approval process and how I qualify, explanation, warning then bit at the bottom saying I can't submit stories at this time and to make sure the submissions are over 1,000 words and Have a short description written  both are at least 1,800 words and have short and long descriptions.  What gives?  I can only use auto submission but I keep getting told by the system I can't submit stories right now/  Why can't I submit anything?

#786 · 2w, 4d ago · · ·

I'm getting a bad .epub version of Warren Hutch's Earth and Sky. Other stories seem to work fine, but that downloads and is a blank document. Any thoughts?

#785 · 2w, 6d ago · · ·

I have a bug, I think. One of my faved stories doesn't show in the folder. The folder in question is "Read and Liked".

There is 17 unread chapters in there while only 16 are on the list.

Legend say one day knighty will fix the bug.

>>2165 Here's a page listing the users by followers. It's not actually a ranking of popularity, but it may help you.

May I ask if you guys know the 10 most popular writers on Fimfiction are? I wanted to make a top ten video for it!

>>2154 I do mine through a browser called Puffin. I have it on my iPad, and I am sure you can get it for phones.

#776 · 4w, 5d ago · · ·

Is there any way for me to customize my user page at all? I only have access to mobile and I don't think I can drag modules around.

There used to be an overall words read counter years and years ago. It was removed for using too many resources for too little of a payoff. As far as I know there are no immediate plans to return it.

#774 · 4w, 6d ago · · ·

I don't know if I can give you a suggestion for the site here or not, but I'll leave it here anyways. I had a idea that could count how much we read. In each bookshelf there could be a line - Total words read xxxxxxx. Or something similar. It's so people wouldn't count every story he/she read and could easily see the number. There could be ranking but that wouldn't work because people would add random stories thus making the count bigger.

This site only hosts English stories.

#772 · 5w, 3d ago · · ·

Are there fanfics in languages besides English on this site? Perhaps a search by language would be helpful. It would be nice to witness the international fandom through foreign languages.

Damn, I miss Poultron.

Okay, I'll keep in mind to PM any bug issues from now on.  I apologize if posting it here was hasty of me, but speaking as someone who (mostly) uses the mobile site, I kind of wish there was a "bug report" option or something like that, because sending the initial PM in a conversation is a bit of a pain from a phone... :unsuresweetie:

Please don't use these comment sections for important matters like Bug reporting. PM that to us.

The broken unban issue is a known problem and will be addressed.

#767 · 6w, 5d ago · · ·

Here's a bug I recently became aware of:  It seems as though group admins can no longer unban users from a group.  Anytime a group admin tries to change the member status of a banned user, this error message pops up:

>>2126

Here in the staff page comments will probably work, or you could use the site FAQ's comment section, or PM one of the staff directly (Xaquseg might be your best bet, unless I'm mistaken.)

#766 · 6w, 5d ago · · ·

Here goes: where am I supposed to leave comments about broken site features and bugs and stuff?

Um I'm really sorry if I'm bothering you but I'm wondering what to do to ask questions about fimfiction.

  I'm wanting to wonder if you can possibly request pony tags for stories? It's not completely necessary if you can't but I'm just curious. I'm wanting if possible to have separate tags of the pie sisters(Marble and Limestone Pie), and I was also wanting a Scorpan tag(the brother of Tirek in the season four finale). I love reading and writing on this page, thank you guys so much for making it btw. You have no idea how much this site cured my boredom lol!

  Anyways again sorry to bother, I am still quite new to how this site works so I hope I'm not spamming by commenting here.
