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!

I try to upload some art with my story, but it keeps saying; Invalid image type

what am I doing wrong?

#434 · 10h, 19m ago · · ·

>>1229 That would put an absurd amount of unnecessary stress on this site's server.

>>1255 Mature rated stories with sex tags are pretty much all clop. If a mature rated story has sex jokes in it, it'll typically lack the sex tag as just having non-explicit sex jokes isn't enough to force a mature rating. If you'd like some examples, here are a few:

Teen sex:

Naked Singularity

Hoofin It

Mature non-clop:

Eyes Wide Shut

The Unexpected Love Life of Dusk Shine

Mature w/sex:


Sour Candy

Those should give you a good idea on how the rating system works around here. If you have any further questions in regards to your own stories, I'd suggest giving one of the story approvers a PM about it.

Are there plans to add a separate tag for "Clop"? I'm surprised it hasn't already been added. It would be wonderful to be able to clearly define the difference between an M-rated story with T-rated sexual references/humour and a story with explicit sex scenes.

An optional filter for Clop that is separate from the Mature Content filter would also be nice. :raritywink:

What browser/version?

Hey I use a mobile and it won't let me change my avatar?

>>1250 Cool! Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. XD

Sure, only as a new chapter and not a new upload.

#426 · 1d, 1h ago · · ·

If you have a translation of one of your stories into another language, are you allowed to post it as another chapter? I always wondered about that.

>>1238 My iPad gives me a white screen whenever I try to change my avatar from it and when I add a cover art from it it'll give me some kind of error that says

Tried to get a field 'aws_cover_image' from a database object but it doesn't exist
. I figured it was from the cropping update and the mobile version. But I wanted to make sure

Mobile has issues fitting the entire picture on the screen for cropping if you do not force it to open fimfic in a desktop version. I am still able to save the changes to a story when I attempt to change the picture, but I cannot view the entire story to crop it properly.

Are you having a different issue?

#423 · 3d, 1h ago · · ·

Why can't I Change my avatar or Coverart to a story through my iPad?

#422 · 4d, 16h ago · · ·

>>1228 well, it would be cool if you could see who all was reading the story.

Because it is only a counter.

#420 · 4d, 17h ago · · ·

why can't we see who else is reading a story in live reader count?

#418 · 5d, 12h ago · · ·

>>1209  Thank you so much! Sorry to have fussed over it so much, I thought there was a change to the site. I'm very appreciative of your extremely rapid responses.

#417 · 6d, 15h ago · 1 · ·

None of the new groups are having their pictures displayed in the trending groups box. I don't know if that's a bug, or just a temporary issue.

Lovely job you lot are doing.

Your view setting (on the right) is set to "List mode", set it to "Full mode".

#414 · 1w, 18h ago · · ·


Click where it says "List View" and change it to "Full View".

#413 · 1w, 19h ago · · ·


It may be something on my end if nothing has changed. When I'm in the browsing section or my library images look like this instead of like this  For me, it used to look like the latter one with a big picture for all stories, but they're all tiny now. IT usually also has each chapter listed underneath the description. Do I just have a weird setting selected or something?

Disabled for the time being as it was causing other issues behind the scenes.




I am not sure what you are concerned over or asking for? Do you want larger coverarts displayed? The current setup is how it's always been, so it's not like anything has changed. Do you have the setting enabled to view them as Cards?

Can members/contributors invite more people to a group?

Why doesn't the sound effect setting work?

Thanks knighty.

>>1192 pick an image you would otherwise link to (if you have permission to use it), or create your own (preferably 1000 by 250 pixels, otherwise it'll be cropped), save it to your computer, click the "edit group" pencil icon next to the group name (on the group's main page, if you are the person with permission to run the group) and scroll down to where it allows you to upload banner image, upload it from your device. (and save changes on the page) Hopefully it'll work alright.

How do I make a group banner?

#404 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·

I uploaded the banner image for my group, replacing the offsite image link, and it disappeared.  It appears as:

<a class="banner_overlay" style="background-image:url('//');" href="/group/205504/the-ponymarillion"></a>

...which doesn't exist. The offsite link (same image) was btw. There's no option to restore it, or to remove the uploaded one... Probably a known bug?

#403 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1180 Shh, don't question it.

#402 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

>>1180 It has been like that for days... :applejackconfused:

#397 · 1w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>1175 It's all good. I was just worried that you were adding java on top of the eight million other things you do every day. What you do as it is requires nerves of steel, lol.

No of course not. It's being worked on.

Known issue. Working on it.

#393 · 2w, 12h ago · · ·

I think this is a bug. Any user with an apostrophe in their name doesn't have a user page, or at least it can't be accessed normally.

#392 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

I had no idea this page had a comment section:rainbowderp:

#391 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

Not to be annoying, but have you guys fixed the problem where if a story is in more than one folder its counted as many times as they're in the folders?

Very old browsers are not supported. Keep everything up to date.

#389 · 2w, 4d ago · · ·

>>1142 ohmygosh! While there ISN'T a tab like that VISIBLE, I still mashed my screen a bit and it IS there. It comes out badly cropped and kind jumbled, but there IS an invisble tab on the right side of the screen. Whaddaya know! Thanks! (If it is at all relevant, I'm on IOS 6.1.6 Safari; might be too outdated maybe? I've never heard of an outdated browser making buttons invisible, but who knows). Wow, this just blew my mind!

When you perform a search on the mobile site there is a tab on the right side of your screen with 3 dots. Tapping this will open the full menu for all search info.

#387 · 2w, 4d ago · · ·

Heya. The mobile version of this site's search is unusable. I get to choose the genre and it spits out the newest uploads for that. That's it. That is literally all you can do with mobile search.

And since I would need to FIND something to read FIRST this makes the entire site plain useless. I can't even switch to desktop mode by force.

#386 · 3w, 1d ago · · ·

>>1121 Perhaps. That's the only thing I could think of. He made it sound so serious haha.
