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!

I think this is where I should report it.

Lately, and from seemingly the same source, I've been getting virus attacks on fimfiction. I'm getting OpenCandy adware trying to install and it's being blocked by Avast.

I don't have much more information on the ad causing this in question, nor which specific ad it might be.

>>2810 Your heart probably hurts due to all the cutting that your band does. I mean, I have my fair share of eating pixie stixks in the summer, but you need to lay low with the sugar man. Also, what's the band, I might know you.

I joined a boy band a week ago, and now my heart hurts.

Why?

Nah, bro.  You ain't the only one that happens to on this site.

And unless you can prove they had an alt also do it, not much else can be done about it, sadly.

Once again, half of my work was disliked for no reason yesterday.

Look, I can understand someone not liking my work, one dislike might happen and it's inevitable... but 10 in the same day?

I am the only user in the entire site I know of that this has happened to, so what can I do to prevent this from happening... again? This is starting to worrying me.

Instructions at the top of the page. You have to install either greasemonkey or tampermonkey, depending on your  browser.

>>2793 Okay, I have a question about this. I found the download link, but all it actually brings up is the script for the download. How do I actually enable the actual download itself?:applejackconfused:

#1,039 · 1w, 1d ago · · ·

>>2789

The option you're looking for is probably related to Interactive Ponies.

It's a script I wrote that adds extra types that you'll have to install. linky (half way down the page)

Hiya, Weaver here,

Sorry to bother you on your busy schedules, but I've been trying to do something for days now, and I still can't seem to find out how to do it. In my local settings I found the option to enable an "Interactive Pony", which I did, and have come to enjoy it dearly. However, someone mentioned an option to change the Interactive Pony into different characters. Yet I have not found any option do such a thing. So my question is this.

How do you change the "Interactive Pony" into different characters?

If you don't have time to help, I will understand. But help of any kind would be much appreciated. Thank you for what you have done so far. I greatly enjoy this site and it's all because of the work of the staff who made and maintain it.

Sincerely, Maskweaver.

Ah, well, it's not that important. I'd rather think PMing mods should only be for more important matters. Besides, I've already figured it out.

Thank you. Though I've already done it.

How can I embed the flag counter from this site on my userpage? It's supposed to be an image but copy-and-pasting the URL it provides in the image embed option here says it's invalid. Is there something I need to add to the URL to make it work? I can provide the URL it gives from the site if that's needed to properly help me.

>>2745 No problem:twilightsmile:

>>2743 Nope, it's similar to Skype. Knighty has a blog saying about it

>>2741 They use a discord chat now

>>2739 So any reason why the IRC chat isn't used anymore ?

>>2738 You're welcome :scootangel:

#1,022 · 3w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2737  Cool like I said I accidentally clicked the stupid icon and the rules page and I didn't know if that automatically signed me up for the chat so thanks for clearing that up for me

#1,020 · 3w, 3d ago · · ·

>>2735  So nothing to worry about then ?

#1,019 · 3w, 4d ago · · ·

>>2733 The IRC chat? It's not used anymore but it would ask for a username before you signed up so I doubt you have

#1,018 · 3w, 4d ago · · ·

this may sound like a dumb question but how would I know if I had joined the chat or not.... not saying that I want too but i did click on the icon and the rule page and I didn't know if that automatically signed me up or not.

Sorry to chime in, but the only written rule regarding voting behaviour is "You're not allowed to vote on stories with more than one account" (paraphrased from a poorly-written rule but, in my experience, accurate). This rule isn't related to the complaint of downvote-harassment/intimidation you've made here.

The only entry in the FAQ (which seems to be where "what is the purpose of the voting system?" would be answered, if it were answered) regarding voting behaviour is "I want to post a story but I'm scared to, because what if people don't like it? What do?!", which isn't really what you're talking about here.

Yes, it's common sense that the story voting system should be used only for rating a story on its merits, but your lawyer friend would have trouble making your case because legal practice is a very "letter of the law" field and there isn't a clear, existing statement of what the purpose of story thumbs is.

And it's certainly a problem that the site mods permit users to downvote all of each other's stories over personal feuds, but it's difficult to enforce voting intentions, and making it easier to enforce voting intent (such as, say, making it so blocking someone prevents them from voting on your stories) usually has negative consequences (such as authors witch-hunting for downvoters, which already happens enough, and blocking all of them until only upvoters remain).

The solution is to make sure you're not being a turd to people, avoid controversy and drama, and write good shite in stories and blogs. I don't mean to imply you're doing/not doing any of those things. This solution is just a checklist of How To Mostly Not Get Auto-Downvoted By Jerks (and also how to attract many followers). If you can check every item, cool.

I asked nicely the first time. I PMed a moderator as is expected. You told me your opinion on the matter and said you don't act on it. I proved it was against the rules, and now you're proving what I said when you'll only act on users who upset you but you won't help them when they legitimately need help. It's not spamming to ask every several hours for help, nor is it against any rules to ask for help, and I also don't see any rule prohibiting the use of law enforcement or federal agencies to aid ones case. If you'd have helped me by getting rid of the spammers votes then would we be even at this point?

Do your jobs and I won't have to act out. But I did this all right in the beginning and you answered once and have been ignoring me since. Thats not appropriate. I still have people harassing me, so do something about it like a normal person would.

Spamming every page you can find related to staff with your vitriolic comments and threats of having the FBI investigate people that downvote you happens falls under your definition of harassment.

#1,010 · 5w, 5d ago · 1 · 5 ·

Ah, nevermind.

Site rule:

Intentionally exploiting the site is grounds for a ban, please report any found exploits with reproduction steps to admin@fimfiction.net immediately.

Upvoting and downvoting is part of the site, and therefore it is in fact exploiting the site to use the downvote function to attack a user's stories and comments for any other reason from their original purpose. According to the definition of exploiting, and the site rule, this action qualifies as breaking that rule.

Next time I have to bring this up I'm getting a lawyer involved. I'll have them tell you guys you're wrong and that I'm right. So can we please just simply get rid of the spammed downvotes? It's really easy, like God. Just please get rid of them. It's harassment to follow a user around like this and downvote everything.

ha·rass·ment

həˈrasmənt,ˈherəsmənt/

noun

noun: harassment; plural noun: harassments

aggressive pressure or intimidation.

Downvoting comments to be nice to me doesn't sound right. It's intimidation due to their opinion of me. Attacking a user is against the site rules as well.

Can we please help me? I'm not gonna stop asking until I get the right help and answers. Just saying.

Can I get a link to the site rules? I'm on mobile and can't find it.

No. Report the user and we'll deal with it.
