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!

Sorry to trouble you.

Not sure where to take this, but I've noticed that when I use the handy 'download chapter' buttons the site provides, any author's notes at the end of the chapter are removed.  I'd quite like to be able to save them with it, as they often contain useful information.

Admittedly, I can fix this with copy-paste, but I could also save the whole chapter that way, which rather defeats the point of having 'download chapter' buttons.

That's fine.


Have him send an email to

#908 · 2d, 8h ago · · ·

Greetings, staff. I am messaging on behalf of a dear friend of mine who seems to have encountered a major issue.

My friend is trying to sign in, however, he has forgotten both his password and username. Inputting the email into the password recovery claims there is no account with the email, and trying to create one says the email is used.

He is most distraught, so he asked me to speak to you on his behalf. Any help you can provide would be most helpful.

Thank you for your time.

Hi all, sorry to bother you.

I'm wondering about adding cover art to a story. It looks like many stories use a screenshot from a MLP episode as cover art; just to confirm, is that ok for me to do? Or does that run afoul of copyright restrictions?

#906 · 3d, 13h ago · · ·

Hi! Um, this is kinda awkward. A little while ago, I sent a message to a moderator to try to get some stories I deleted restored to the site, but some things have been worrying me.

Both stories were deleted a long time ago, and the site has been through several major revisions since then, so it seems possible they might no longer be in the database?

I'm also worried that I did something wrong in my initial request, like talking too formally, or a moderator needed more or different information than what I provided - namely a story ID number, and if the story went through a name change - I provided the name the story had when it was deleted, as that seemed sensible, but should it have been the name the story had when it was submitted?

Or am I overthinking all of this, and just need to sit down, be patient, and let the mods get to it when they get to it?

#905 · 4d, 11h ago · · 1 ·

Um, I think I found a bug.

Whenever I go to edit my stories, all of the text in the long description box is replaced with "sleepy panda".

Not really sure what's going on here...?

Edit: Was just a browser issue. Fixed now.

>>2447 hehe thanks. my bad.:twilightblush:

#902 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2446 Most likely, cause it would be considered spam follows. You need to space your following out

#901 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2445 :twilightblush: uh yeah... could that be it?

#900 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2444 did you try to follow loads of people one after another?

#899 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

something is wrong with the follow system! i can't follow anyone!!

Hi there I'm new but I have been writing a chapter on a book for the first time I have 7,824 words and It won't let me publish it and I also have a short description.

#897 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·

Is there a forum\group where you can get help to improve a story that you can't get approved?

#896 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2433 There are two great ways to get better at writing. Like any skill, the best is to do it, just write. Try and get somepony else to look at it and critique it. The other way is to read, read read read, though more formal fiction is a better bet than fanfiction, it will give you a better feel for how things should be done, or could be done.

#895 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2432 Haha! I was right! I can't say I'm surprised. I'm a rather smart fellow. I just wish I could write well. I'm so...average.

#893 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2406 The top picture was a picture of the story "Shining Chitin," isn't it? The 12k word count, character images and chapter names seem familiar.

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:

#891 · 4w, 1d ago · 3 · ·


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.

#890 · 4w, 1d ago · · ·


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?



#889 · 4w, 1d ago · · ·

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

#888 · 4w, 2d 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 · 7w, 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 · 7w, 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 · 8w, 1d ago · · ·

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

Thank you anyway.

#871 · 8w, 1d 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 · 8w, 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 · 8w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2362 thanks man

#868 · 8w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2361 Automatically.

#867 · 8w, 3d 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 · 8w, 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 · 8w, 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 · 9w, 9h ago · · ·

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

#863 · 9w, 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 · 9w, 2d 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 · 9w, 2d 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.
