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!

For adding images to blogs, pms, groups, and such, have you guys looked at implementing an "upload image from desktop" option?

#832 · 4d, 23h ago · · ·

would it be possible to add chapter title search to the search criteria?

Once you're banned, you've lost any and all privileges for what you want to do with the story. If the author wanted to continue the story on this site themselves or let someone inherit it, then they should have considered that before earning a ban.

Self-requested bans are different in that they can just be undone at any time.

>>2250 I've been told that you can get it transferred if you have their permission?

If the user is banned, the story is done. Your only option is to do a fan-continuation that picks up where they left off without copying any of the existing dialogue/narration.

If some one was writing a story and for some reason or another they got banned while still having the story incomplete, is that story 100% doomed to never be completed or can some one else finish it them self? :unsuresweetie:

Ah.  You don't do it from the Add Story page.  You go to the story's page itself, and click "New Chapter" in the top left.

#822 · 2w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2239 Alrighty I see that now but I don't see just a "story" box, just "prequel story". Is that it or am I just completely missing the point on how to do things here. Again, I have no idea. Never posted anything here before.

You have pasted your entire story into the Long Description section.  Not the Story section.  That section is currently blank.

#820 · 2w, 3d ago · · ·

Hey, ah I've never used this site until now an I'm having some trouble submitting my story. It DOES have more than 1000 words (almost 2k actually) and I did include a short description. But I keep getting a message that I need both of those things before I can submit. What do I do about this to get my story up?

#819 · 3w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2233 It would probably be best to PM a mod

#818 · 3w, 1d ago · · ·

I'm not sure if this is the right place for pointing out an issue or not, but I think there is something wrong with the filter when sorting thru the stories. It won't let me switch from approved to words, nor can I switch status to anything but blank which makes finding long completed stories difficult.

Oh and here's a chaoticly happy picture for you:derpytongue2:

Knighty is currently working on a complete overhaul of the tagging system.  When that goes live, expect the new tags to be added.  Adding anything before the update, however, would just create additional work.

>>2224

You can find your answer here

#813 · 3w, 2d ago · · ·

About the copyrighted lyrics rule, to what extent does it apply? Is it fair game to simply include the opening line to the chorus, to indicate the song? For example, ♫Let it go, let it go...

#812 · 3w, 4d ago · · ·

Is there an issue with the story submit button and iOS?  I submitted a story Monday morning before leaving for work in the hopes it'd be up by Monday afternoon; at this point that was a little over forty hours ago (prior to this, the longest something I submitted stayed in the queue before getting an answer was 13 hours).  If there the queue was effectively from here to the moon, that'd also make sense.  Just a little confused by the very long wait.

Thanks.

Nice easy question here - when will Ember be getting her own Tag? Right now she still has to be classified under Other which is a little strange given the success of her character; this is the point where I learn adding new Tags is a total pain.

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?

Professor Plum

#807 · 4w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2211

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.

#801 · 4w, 4d 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 · 5w, 2h 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 · 5w, 13h 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.

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.

#790 · 6w, 4d 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 · 6w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2173

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 · 6w, 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 · 6w, 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 · 7w, 33m 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.

#784 · 7w, 3h ago · · ·

Legend say one day knighty will fix the bug.
