    Group Updates

    Most of you are probably already aware of this thanks to our messages at the top of pages but I wanted to do a blog post about some of the updates we've done recently.

    We now have support for private groups. This means you can make groups for discussing things you don't want other people to see. This does not make them exempt from site rules, and moderators can still see your group (for obvious reasons). To go with this, I've also added group invitations. This will let you invite people to join closed groups. Spamming invites will definitely not end well for you so, don't do that. You can accept/reject/block invitations from the new manage invitations page.

    The pages for editing groups have also been remade and work a lot better (like not crashing when you make a folder...)

    We've also started a massive shift in how we process images on the site which has been going on for about a week now. We have a brand new system that handles scaling images on demand. We have a lot of much smaller images now than we used to which is nice for mobile and...well anyone actually.

    Avatars and group icons both support up to 512 x 512 images now. Neither make use of that size yet but it's for potential future use.

    Groups Post - May 2015

    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 (I don't write these ads myself), 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.

    Also, happy Star Wars Day! Only VII months to go before Episode VII releases.

    (It's like poetry, they rhyme)


    Thirty Minute Ponies began as a blog on Tumblr offering writers pony-based flash-fiction prompts. That blog has since shut down, but we're still here on FimFic keeping its legacy alive.

    Join us every Thursday for weekly thirty-minute prompts. It's great, no-pressure writing practice, and the mod-on-duty that week will make sure you get feedback.

    Come help us keep a three-year tradition going!


    The Poniverse Fimfiction Group will be hosting a new contest throughout the month of May, the "Poniverse Spring Has Sprung" contest.  Seeing as cutie marks seem to be a major theme in MLP this season, all entries must relate to cutie marks in some manner and can be no longer than 20,000 words (fics with multiple chapters will be accepted).  The contest will officially open Friday, May 8, entries can be submitted until May 31, and the winners will be announced the first week of June.  More details will be forthcoming, and if you have any questions, feel free to shoot a PM to Poniverse Fimfiction admin Batbrony, who will be running the contest.


    New Characters Welcome Wagon

    Welcome new comers of the pony world! This group is here to welcome all new characters introduced to the show and try and keep there from being a new group made for every character, though that's a futile effort I can still try. Simply put when new characters are introduced we'll have a little event here where a new temporary folder will be made for them to house all their fics before being deleted after a weeks time, but don't fret, there will be a main folder for all fics so none of your work will be lost.

    In addition a discussion thread will be made for each new character so you all can talk about how much you hate or love the new characters. The threads will be stickyed for as long as their related folders are up, afterwards they will be left up un-stickyed for those that wish to find them again.


    Hi! Welcome to the Monthly Contest Club!

    After a long hiatus, we are back!

    If you're tired of having to wait around for the next group contest, you can come here, where there will be a steady stream of contests. All contest winners will receive a spotlight on the group's front page and will have their story added to the Contest Winners folder. Afraid you might not win? That's okay, all contestants will have their stories added to the Contest Participants folder.

    Contest prompts will be posted on the first of each month, and entry will be closed on the last day of the month. Entries will be judged by admins as quickly as possible, and admins will be added as needed.

    Good luck and have fun!


    Equestrian Saiyans

    The first ever Dragon Ball Z group, for three years we've been providing fans their martial arts, Ki blasting, Super Saiyan, Dragon Ball wishing, and even Team Four Star related stories crossover with the My Little Pony franchise.

    You can expect some competitions and collabs; plus help if you want to write your own story about the topic! All ideas and stories are welcome, as long as you’re friendly, keep an open mind, and can show respect for others and their work; then you will be welcome here!


    Equestrian Geography 101

    This is a group for coming up with a detailed consistent map of Equestria for the purposes of fiction. Basically a shared geography headcanon for Equestria. Why? Because it's cool if you're reading a story and it mentions a street name and you're like, "wait, wasn't that where Lyra kissed Bon Bon in that other story I read yesterday by an entirely different author?"


    Capitalism

    We are Capitalism a group dedicated to the support, the debate and understanding of the system that leads our lives.

    The body is amazingly adaptable, with enough patience, practice, and dedication the body can move comfortably in ways many people think is impossible.  Here we explore the possibilities of flexibility, provide information dispelling myths about stretching and contortion, and even provide advice for aspiring contortionists.  The mission of the group is to inspire more fiction and art relating to the beautiful art of yoga and contortion, and to nurture a community for those curious and experienced.

    Come join and explore the limits of the body!


    The Goodfic Bin is a new story submission group, and it's main purpose is to find the hidden gems of FiMFiction that don't get the recognition they deserve. What's great about TGB is we dont have an upvote requirement—stories can be submitted regardless of their rating. We have a team of dedicated approvers that review both normal submissions and self submissions, so if you're looking for feedback on your work—this group will provide. Please read the front page for more information on how to submit.


    That's it for May. Don't forget to submit your groups if you want them in the post for June!

    PSA: Potential Story Thefts

    Hi guys. Quick announcement here that it's been discovered that an ebook website called Ebooks Tree has been caught selling peoples' fanfics without their knowledge or permission. This in the midst of a rash of other scandals involving fanfiction-stealing, which you can read more about here. Basically, the site's sent out some bots that harvested a bunch of stuff from popular Fanfiction venues, and they make money off of it via ad support and charging for access.

    Which is obviously not okay.

    Reddit's got a noncomprehensive pastebin up of known works that have been taken. You may want to check that, but it's not a complete list, so your stories might still have been stolen even if they aren't on there. It looks like the main victims are mostly stories posted up on the old Pony Fiction Vault site... but again, even if you didn't have stories in the Vault, you may want to do a quick check-around just to make sure. Better safe than sorry.

    Easy directions for filing a DMCA complaint so that you can get your stories pulled can be found here.

    Quick links to Ebooks Tree's DMCA page and Contact Page here.

    So, uh, probably best to just do a quick scan for any stories you might have written that are near and dear to your heart (or checking around for your author name). If you find anything, make sure to file the proper complaints, and that'll hopefully contribute to ending this withering storm.

    Have a nice day.

And here we go! Time to explore!


The group, Crack Ship's Inc, has initiated it's first prompt contest!

At Crack Ships Inc, we believe that anyone and anything can fall in love. After all, Friendship is Magic is all about making friends, and it's not a huge leap from friendship to romance.

And if anyone can become friends, then anyone can fall in love.

For the prompt contest, six arbitrarily chosen ponies are presented, and contestants must write a ship fic about two or more of those ponies.

Closing date is the 23rd of April, after which a community vote opens up to decide the winner.


Good day fellow FIM FANS,

Recently our group, Fan Fiction Documentary, launched on this site announcing a FIM Fan Fiction Documentary in the works. We hope to bring a quality 40-45 minute documentary to the Brony community sometime this summer. We are aiming for 7-8 guests with a variety of backgrounds, but if you want to find out more just take the link to our faq which will be updated this weekend with a list of guests and a more defined focus based on feedback gained in the past week.

We will also be opening a discussion board where we can keep track of talent including those interested in contributing works of art including music, pictures of all sorts, video, and of course listing their stories for consideration. We won't be able to use even half the authors we have, but we have something in the works to show just how many quality fics we have in this community.

I would also like to take this time to congratulate FIMFICTION.net for being the second most popular fan fiction site on the web, second only to http://archiveofourown.org which has 11700 fandoms as of today. FIMFICTION.net is also about tied for most hits as a Brony site, and is in the process of passing EQD for hits as we speak.

Shower knighty and his staff with praise below. They have all accomplished a lot in the past few years and brought us a lot of joy including making this project possible with tools like the group function.

So thank you Fimfiction, we hope to honor you and and the rest of the community soon.


Tropers is a new group dedicated to the TVTropes wiki; the internet's favorite trope catalogue and life-ruiner.

Our group may not be large right now, but we have folders for both troper-written and troper-recommended works, and we have already done a Fic Secret Santa. The more members the more discussion we can have, and the more events we can arrange!

Don't be afraid to stop by, whether you're familiar with the site or not. A valid TVTropes handle is required to add fics to folders, but trust us when we say those aren't hard to get.


The World-Building Alliance has announced the April Story Prompt!

Now, I bet some of you were wondering why we decided to delay this month’s idea until the second of the month.  The simple answer being what happened yesterday, with gold memberships, retirements, promotions, and all manner of general silliness.  We decided it would be best to wait for a day than get caught up in the middle of all that :twilightsmile:

Now, onto the fun part.  For this month, the idea is a simple one:  Take a trait of your main character, and crank it up to eleven.  An extremely friendly minotaur, maybe?  Or a dragon with insatiable curiosity, perhaps.  Go nuts, we want to see some wacky combinations out there.

If you’re after some pony examples, we could give Twilight as a super-smarty pants.  Or maybe Fluttershy, with her maxed out shyness stat.

Now, seeing as this is a more character-driven prompt, we'll be fiddling with the weighting of the categories to represent that.  For this month, World Building will be less important than your ability to create and convincingly flesh out this OC.

For more information follow THIS LINK


American Bronies

Are you from the country that kicks the most ass, while simultaneously maintaining a below par public education system? Then this group is for you!

Come here to celebrate all things uniquely American, from the artery clogging, early death sentence inducing deliciousness that is american cuisine, to the vast and unequaled power of our military, via one of the largest budgets in the world!

It is as you might expect, it's for those who live in territory claimed by US and A to join and exercise those free speech rights. We don't really do anything special other than talk ponies and news concerning 'Merica.


Polyamory (Contains NSFW/Mature Fics)

Because Pony x Pony x Ponies is best ship.

A group for everyone that likes to see more than two ponies getting together.  Accepts both clean and clop stories, simply place them in the relevant folders.  

A prime example of what we are looking for is The Teacher, The Sorceress, and The Wonderbolt.  

This group is not meant to overshadow other groups dedicated to specific polyamorous relationships, and as such will not have folders dividing every possible shipping combination of three ponies or more.  I believe that the whole point of polyamorous shipping is the open, convention-breaking feel, so adding regimented groups seems odd.  These shippings are allowed, but they will not be segregated.  

If you happen to be interested in specific poly ships, RariJackDash, AppleDashLight, Twilunestia, and Twilunestiance are at your disposal.

We encourage any and all members to search for stories with polyamory or even polyamorous elements.  There isn't much out there, and of course we would all like it if the idea was spread out even more.  

Hopefully, more groups will be founded (maybe even by you, yes YOU) in order to spread the message of free love and swinging across FimFic and Bronydom.



Aaand that's it for now!

Remember, if you have a group that is organizing something for the whole community, or has just been created, or has been around but has a unique concept, you might want to PM me with the details! Be sure to write about 200 words minimum describing what your group or event is around and provide as much detail as you can!

>>984391 It's a site post. Everyone gets informed when there's a site post. Also, this is not about a single group, it's a blog-post promoting several groups.

#15 · 111w, 2d ago · 1 · 1 ·

Might I submit my Anti-Fimfiction Group for next month? We are a group that feels "Bronies" must be stopped. They have infiltrated our youth and are engaging our sons and daughters in psychological warfare, converting them to hateful pedophiles and dooming them to eternal virginity, thus ending procreation for the human race. The horse scoundrel site FimFiction is one of their main tools in consistently violating the principles of free speech and fair trade. Therefore our group's overarching goal is for all "Bronies" to be hunted down and dealt with.

We don't have much going on at the moment, but are on the lookout for more decent folk so we can get the resistance rolling :pinkiesmile:

I have. Quaint, to say the least. Definitely not a runner's climate. Nor a runner's society. With the whole, "cover all of your skin, but hands and face is okay." They did not enjoy seeing a skinny-ass 'Murrican running bareback through the city.

Anyway, if you are sort of wondering why you might have received a warning about this post, it's because site-posts, which moderators and administrators write, get announced to all users.
