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!

Question: is it possible to leave likes or comments on a story that has not been published or submitted yet?

You can vote — but the votes are hidden on stories until there have been at least 15 votes cast.

No. You'll have to resize it yourself and upload that to an image provider.

#572 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

Technical question: Is it possible to resize an image in the text of a story/blog?  Like, if I wanted to insert an image in a blog post, but the only linkable version is some crazy 1080-by-something in dimensions and I don't want it nearly half that big.  I'm familiar with wikitext, and they have a "|###px|" add-on for the "insert image" code letting you dictate how big the image is when it appears; is there something like that to augment the "[img][/img]" this site uses?

No. Post a personal blog if you want to share something with users, but it will not be made a site-wide announcement.

#570 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

Is there any chance or possibility of having some kind of link or something of the sort for the TeamSpeek I am making for every one on site or a announcements so that people can find it?

I noticed the "Others" part of the FiMFiction Staff. Are some of them the staff members that do the coding on this site? Or are the programmers the Administrators? I just wanted to congratulate everyone that did the coding on this site, because it's really impressive.

It used to say "Error"

I must say, it sounds nicer now.

Authors are able to hide what groups the story is added to. You can't bar certain people from buying a book or putting it in a featured collection of there's, so there is no reason to ban users from doing the same here.

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

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.

#560 · 4w, 2d ago · · ·

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 · 4w, 6d 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 · 5w, 12h ago · 1 · ·

Can staff other than the story approvers approve stories?

#552 · 5w, 17h 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!

#551 · 5w, 22h ago · · 7 ·

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:

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 · 5w, 1d 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:

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.

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.

>>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:

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.
