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!

>>2624 what do you mean?

>>2620 funny thing i have the same problem but closing the window and reopening it works well.

Alright, here's my question: I'm aware that I'm not allowed to use copyrighted lyrics and stuff, but what if I make a cover of a song? Not just replacing "hand" with "hoof", but like a full blown cover of a song?

Attempted clearing my cookie, cache and looking what add-ons are enabled (nothing, aside from the default and classic theme restorer (which I've been using here since I switched to Firefox without problems). (Stuff like java and whatnot is active.)

I don't, as a rule, do anything clever with my browser. (I did at one point, try using noscript and adblock try to and make something on dailymotion watchable once, but both were disabled shortly after, and as of now, removed.)

I'm drawing a blank, I'm afraid. Any suggestions?

(You'll have to forgive my apparent idiot questions, I'm afriad Firefx (like IE before it) is not a package I tend to fiddle with any, I just tend to use the defaults, with the exception of shuffting the UI around a bit with classic theme restorer.)

>>2619 well that demoralizing, wonder what I did to earn that. Thanks for the help tho

#973 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·


If it doesn't happen on any other person's userpage, and if it does happen when trying to PM that specific user, then they have blocked you.

#971 · 1w, 6d ago · 2 · ·


Import functionality only works with Gdocs at this moment. Otherwise you will have to copy-paste from your doc to the fimfic chapter editor.

>>2603  >>2605

We get to stories when we have the time to.


Something on your side is not saving cookies or is clearing them. Check browser extensions or other settings.


We need to know the error exactly as it appears on your screen. You may just be blocked by the user.

#970 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2610  Hmmm ok then. Idk why I would be blocked if it is that. I always try to leave comments that aren't offensive and he's a good writer so I really don't have anything bad to say about him.

#969 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2609 You generally get an error if you're blocked , sadly it doesn't just say you're blocked. Maybe ask a friend to ask him if he's blocked you accidentally or ask a staff member ?

#968 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2608 yeah, idk what's happening. If for some reason he blocked my commnets from entering I should at least get a notification that said so not an error notification.

Tho idk if its even possible to block single people from commenting

#967 · 2w, 2h ago · · ·

>>2607 Does it only happen when trying to comment on that author?

#966 · 2w, 3h ago · · ·

I'm getting a really annoying error everytime I try to comment on a story from a certain author I like. Can anyone help me?

#965 · 2w, 4h ago · · ·

I sent in a story last night (my first actually) and still hasn't been approved. How long does it usually take? Also anybody who's more experienced out there, how do you gain an initial readership (basically how do you get people to actually see your fics among all the muck thats out there)?

#964 · 2w, 18h ago · · ·

I have for some time had some difficulty with the mature filter, in that I basically can't turn it off. 99% of the time, this isn't an issue, since I prefer to leave it off for general usage; but there are occasions when I want to read a particular story that's rated mature.

It doesn't appear to matter where I try and change the settings, be it on the main filter or on my user page, it doesn't seem to actuall take and goes back if I refresh. Further, if I am on the page with a mature-rated story itself, clicking on (Confirm button" below the "This story has been marked as having adult content. Please click below to confirm you are of legal age to view adult material in your country." warning appears to do nothing.

I can't see any birth date on the profile anywhere to check it's not something daft like that (I have been known to put the current date when I signed up for something instead of my birth date on at least one occasion!)

It's a fairly minor inconveniance, but it's becoming more iritating every time it crops up.

Browser is Firefox (50.0), OS is Win 10.


#963 · 2w, 22h ago · · ·

Can someone explain how a fic that was reput in the approve queue last night is still awaiting approval while a fic I put in today got in a few minutes?  

#962 · 2w, 1d ago · · ·

In order to submit a story do we have to use GDoc or can we use other Docs like from Bing for example ?

#961 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

My fic has been in the  approve queue for over 5 days now.

Is this normal?

What should I do?

#960 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2596 its fine now that was a long time ago

#959 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2595 This:

Quick question and I don't mean to bother any of you but could you guys help me figure out why both my sent PM's and received PM's are not going to my gmail inbox. I mean I have my account settings set to where they should go to my inbox but none of them have been sent to my inbox since either last Tuesday or last Wednesday. Again not receiving any of my sent or received PM"s in my gmail inbox and I hope you can help me.

#957 · 2w, 2d ago · · ·

>>2490 You should PM an moderator, Clover.

#956 · 2w, 6d ago · · ·

Hey, I'm having some trouble getting my latest story posted to the site. Each time I try to submit, I see a message telling me that I'm unable to do so "at this time". This has been going on for much of the day. I've been posting here for two years and have twelve other stories up, but have never encountered a problem such as this. Can anyone help?  

#955 · 3w, 4d ago · · ·


It probably means you found a group that was marked as private.

#954 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2583 I did managed to find out how to upload it just recently. I'll try and describ it as best as I can. First of, you start of by klicking on the New Story link. You do all the things you are required to do. Title, summary, characters, etc. Then after you upload the story, you klick on the New Chapter link on that story and that's where you write your story. This website is so much different from FanFiction.Net, that's for sure. After you're done writting the first chapter you klick on the submit button and wait for aproval from the staff. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

#953 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·

What does it mean when groups are not visible to you and you have mature on?  :derpyderp2:

#952 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·


I have also run into the same problem. Each time I try I keep getting a Gate-way Time Out Error and it says the problem is with Can anyone else confirm this?

#951 · 3w, 5d ago · · ·


There should be two buttons when you go to submit your next story. One is for submitting it to the story approver queue, the other allows you to auto-publish it.

#950 · 3w, 6d ago · · ·

>>2537 I've published 2 stories so far. How do I auto-publish a story now?

#949 · 4w, 14h ago · 1 · ·

Hey there. I'm a new member to Fimfiction and I was going to upload my first story but I'm having some difficulties. Could any of you guys help me, please?

#948 · 4w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2573 Oh wow, that's a pretty good idea...

#947 · 4w, 5d ago · · ·

Quick Suggestion. Can you add a search filter for stories you've already read. Since you have the little checkbox for read chapters it should be doable.

Just kinda annoyed at remembering a story I've previously read and then trying to hunt it down.

#945 · 6w, 5d ago · · ·

>>2479  i might be able to help. im good with this stuff.

#944 · 6w, 5d ago · · 3 ·


Probably not.

Is there perhaps some way to see the story approval queue? I'm curious to see how long I'm going to have to wait further still for my fiction to be approved. I mean no offense, or to sound like I'm acting unappreciative, but I'm just anxious, that's all.

I'll be happy because this is my 3rd story, so I'll no longer have to go through the whole story approval wait and process.

#942 · 7w, 4h ago · · ·


Sometimes a story will be checked in just a few hours, sometimes it might even take a few days.  This blog of Meeester's explains some of the common reasons why some stories have a longer wait in the submission queue than others.

#941 · 7w, 19h ago · · ·

Quick question, how long can it take to get a fic approved? my fic has been waiting for approval for about 3 days now, its my first fic so I don't know how long it usually takes to get a fic approved

When Knighty's happy with it.

>>2517 Any idea when that next big patch is going to come through?

#935 · 8w, 3d ago · · 5 ·

So I was reading the chase earlier, and and while looking at it, I noticed something. It's the 2nd longest story, which is strange, because I went to browse and longest, but there wasn't one above it. So I wanted to ask, is there a longer one that isn't published, or is it just an error or something?

You can submit with one chapter published, so long as that one chapter meets the minimum requirements for fimfic, yes.

#933 · 8w, 5d ago · · ·


Quick question. I have an unsubmitted story that has around 16 chapters. Is it possible to only submit one chapter in one go to a mod?

#931 · 9w, 5d ago · 2 · ·

Have you guys ever considered adding a feature to automatically filter out stories based on certain tags?

For instance, if I didn't want to see any stories about Trixie or about Adventure, I could add those tags to a blacklist.

Then stories with those tags wouldn't show up on the front page, featured box, groups, etc.

It would be a really nice quality of life thing.

#930 · 10w, 1d ago · · ·


Yeah, I've got a google Doc with 33+ stories on it, and I don't know if they are eligible for this site.

their not really...finished. not most of them anyway. But some are.

Could I just make a story tab called "The Vidaverse" and just add everything to that regardless of if its finished or not?

You're just going to have to wait.
