To eliminate problems where stories that have very few votes can be sunk by only 1-2 people disliking them, stories with under 15 votes no longer display rating data to anyone but the author. This should give everyone a fair chance at success, even with a couple early haters, but actually-bad stories should quickly-enough accumulate enough downvotes to show as negative that you can still easily avoid them.
We will adjust the number of votes required for visibility later if needed.
Edit: the threshold is now 10, looking into some time-based stuff for older stories.

Groups Posts are a monthly group advertisement blog open to anyone who wants a signal boost. If you're interested in having your group advertised in one of these, send me a PM with the name of the group, a link to its front page, and a brief description of what the group is for. I'll copy this directly into the post, so write it like you're trying to tell other people about why they should join or pay attention to your group - anything up to around 150-ish words is fine.
To celebrate summer and all its fun, Poniverse Fimfiction and MLP Forums are once again hosting a fanfiction contest. This time around, we're asking writers to enter fics about Poniverse's very own mascots themselves, the best of which will be accepted into Poniverse canon. There's lots of special prizes in store for the winners, and for more information about the contest itself, click on the following link:
Poniverse Mascot Summerpalooza Contest! Happy writing!
What fun is there in always seeing the protagonist come out on top? If you're one of those types who likes to see chaos reign, darkness shroud the land, equality spread across the land, empires crumble, mean ponies get away with their misdeeds, towns devoured, ponies kidnapped or just generalized mayhem, this group is for you!
The Related Story Finders is pretty straightforward new group, if you need help finding a story that is like another story or want a recommendation for a story this is the place to be. Rule will be updated as needed and new members are welcome.
This is where you can post stories from nostalgia or suggest ideas from anything nostalgic that you think can make a great crossover.
A collection of MLP stories devoted to Endosomatophilia. What is Endosomatophilia? It is anything involving a tiny being traveling throughout the body of a giant host. Imagine Fantastic Voyage, the movie Inner Space, or the TV show Magic School Bus, and you'll have the hang of it.
In a humanized version of Equestria, Vinyl Scratch ends up being the adopted sister of the monster of a woman known as Jacquelyn "Applejack" Apple when she was six years old. Many years later, Vinyl, her sister and their friends embark in a series of adventure through the lands of Equestria and even beyond... Contains heroic-fantasy/anime-like fights, fluffy romances, and (hopefully) lots of humor.
Do you think that fillies (and colts) are adorable? If you do, The Filly Club is THE place for all of your filly and colt needs, whether you're here to post your stories or read stories about foals. Join and be part of the family!
We are a growing group that love to have nice, clean, drama-free fun in our forums. We welcome new users with a pat on the back and a nice warm hug that lets them feel at home. With group art, music posts, AMAs, and general chats, we're every social user's dream. Though we are a group with a large scale of activities, in order to protect the group we do have rules. Many rules. And these rules are enforced to ensure that other users' experiences are not jeopardized by a few others' bad choices.
So come on down to Higashikaigan's Off Topic and see that sometimes being off topic can be a bit fun!~
That's it for this month. Don't forget to submit your groups if you want them in the post for August!

5w, 3dNSFW Image Policy299 comments · 8,994 views
Hi guys. So, lately we've noticed that there's been a little confusion over what exactly Fimfiction considers to be a NSFW image. The rules do say that you shouldn't post them, but they're a little unclear on exactly what a NSFW image IS. This being so, we've sat down and put together a clearer policy on what sort of image content is too much. I guess it bears reminding that none of this is particularly new stuff. Fimfiction has been running on something akin to this policy for months now. We're just trying to lay it all out nice and clear and notarized so that nobody gets blindsided by the rules in ways they couldn't have really known about.
Risky image content is defined according to two tiers: Banned and Borderline. Banned is content that absolutely won't be allowed, and images containing Banned subjects should be pretty easy and obvious to identify.
Borderline is content that sits somewhere in the blurry boundary between "NSFW" and "Safe" images. Images containing borderline content are not directly banned, but the staff does retain the right to exercise our discretion on what is and isn't too much. You should not be surprised if an image containing Borderline content is removed (or rejected if used as artwork in stories). If it seems like it might be too much, consider something a little safer instead, or ask a staff member if it might be okay. In general, please try to exercise a level of discretion when thinking about posting pics of, or submitting cover arts, that involve Borderline content.
-Outright sex acts.
-Visible nipples, whether bare or poking up through clothing.
-Sexual fluids, both obvious and heavily implied (i.e. "suspiciously sticky mayonnaise")
-Heavily sexualized pony butts. We recognize that ponies are nude by design, but some images are deliberately designed to make their rear ends look as sexual as possible without outright genitalia. Obvious crotch-bulges, excessive focus on the rear end, etc. are the main distinguishing marks for this sort of content.
-Functionally bare human/anthro butts. Panties so small they hardly cover anything do fall under "functionally bare."
-Excessive cleavage/uncovered breasts.
-Cropped/censored porn. Sometimes it's not enough to just baaaarely remove the parts with the nipples/genitals.
-Pictures appealing to various fetishes (diapers, weight gain, vore, etc.) that don't contain outright Banned content. Again, please try to exercise some discretion on what might be over the line.
That should be about it. If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask and we'll do our best to answer. We should also be updating the rules page to include this policy sometime soon, so it will be there for future reference.

We've actually had this ready to go for like 2 weeks but kept forgetting to deploy it. Smart huh?
Anyway, the site now has multi factor authentication! yay! What does that mean I hear you ask? Well, you can now add an extra level of security to your account by adding an additional login step that requires use of a phone/tablet/other device. It's totally optional though.
The Multi Factor Authentication page explains it further (you can get to this page by going to edit your account and clicking the link on the right). You've probably seen it for things like MMOs, gmail and various other sites and we're delighted to offer it on Fimfiction now as well.
