    Phishing Awareness

    Have you ever found yourself in a situation like this?



    And then you magically find yourself in a suspiciously familiar site, except that you're not logged in, and it requires you to do so?

    Well. Don't log in. This is a scam, and a cheap one at that. 

    There've been recent attempts to obtain Fimfiction users’ personal data, like passwords and/or emails through links like the one I'm making fun of above. And a distressing amount of people don't seem to know what phishing attempts are.

    If you HAVE entered a site like this and put in your data, make sure to follow these basic steps at least.

    All Our Best [Royal Canterlot Library]

    As should be obvious from 15 months without a feature, life has taken the Royal Canterlot Library curators in different directions. While there’s still plenty of awesome stories being written in the My Little Pony fandom, we’re no longer actively working to spotlight them, and it’s time to officially draw the project to a close.

    Thank you for all of your support, suggestions, and comments over the years. We’re grateful to have been able to share seven years of exemplary stories with you, and give more insight into the minds behind them. In the spirit of the project, please keep reading and recommending fantastic fics to friends—the community is enriched when we all share what we love.

    Reunions: A Swapped Roles Contest!

    Okay guys here's something fun presented by Nitro Indigo.

    Presented by me, I guess, but I digress.

    Last year, I (Nitro Indigo) noticed that there was a surprising lack of roleswap fanfics on this site. To fix that, I decided to run a roleswap contest over the summer themed around secrets. While it didn’t get many entries, it nevertheless attracted the attention of some big authors and was the origin of two of my favourite fics. Overall, I think it was a success, so I’ve decided to run another one!

    Minor Rules and Reporting Update

    Hope everyone is enjoying the new year.

    Some small changes have been made to our rules as well as to the reporting process.

    Rules

    "No attacks directed at individuals or groups due to race, gender, gender identity, religion or sexual identity."

    This better clarifies our previously ill-defined hate speech rule and includes groups as well as individual attacks.

    "No celebration, glorification or encouragement of real life criminal activity."

    This includes past, present and potential future crimes.

    Jinglemas 2019

    There's truly no time like the holidays. What's better than copious amounts of food, quality time with family and friends, hearing the sweet sound of Trans-Siberian Orchestra on repeat, and unmanagble financial stress from our capitalist overlords?

    Gift exchanges of course!

    "Ponyfic: There Can Be Only One" wrap-up [Royal Canterlot Library]

    We're still recovering this week from the fandom's final Bronycon.  (In some cases literally — a con-crud-ridden Horizon is dragging himself out of bed to write this.)  So in lieu of a Bronycon-week feature, we'd like to talk a little bit about the panel we hosted to find THE FANDOM'S BEST FANFIC™.

    We've got a full writeup on our royalcanterlotlibrary.net website — including the complete bracket of 16 fics in contention for the title; shout-outs to great fics which we couldn't fit on the shortlist; and the full results of audience and curator voting.

    Our hearty congratulations to Monochromatic's "The Enchanted Library" for taking the BEST FANFIC title in an upset victory over our #1 seed!  We'll be running an interview with Monochromatic as soon as possible.

    Come See Us at Bronycon! [Royal Canterlot Library]

    The run-up to Bronycon has been a mad whirlwind of RCL activity!  Five curators are attending (two for the first time!), and one of us is an official community guest. Several of us are participating in the Golden Oaks Bookstore (as author, author and publisher).  And we're even running a panel!

Site Post » Dear Fimfiction · 3:28am Apr 1st, 2013

Dear Fimfiction,

It is with bittersweet regret that I must speak to you today.

As of today, I, knighty, will no longer run and maintain Fimfiction.net. Instead, I relinquish full control of the site to my best friend and homosexual life partner , Poultron.

I'm making this decision for a number of reasons; chief among them is the fact that I've grown tired of the site. I've been asking for months for a proper sequel to My Little Dashie, and you guys just haven't written enough of them. In addition, after the recent changes to the site went over less than well, a disgruntled Fimfiction user hired a contract killer to bludgeon my fingers. As a result, I have been unable to code for weeks, and am dictating this post through my secretary, Wlah.

I see this as a mostly positive change in the long run. Getting away from ponies will allow me to pursue my true passion of opera singing, and I've heard that Poultron already has some great changes planned for the site - you should be able to see some of his ideas implemented before the end of the day.

To everyone on the site: thank you for years of fanfiction, and for your hours of sanctimonious bitching at the free website I gave you. I know that Poultron will carry the same spirit of passive conflict avoidance I tried to hold myself to, and I wish him and you all the best in Fimfiction's future.

Until the next great fandom,

knig-knog out.

ISKV #3 · Apr 1st, 2013 · · ·

All Hail Pony Overlord!

Knighty, pls.

See you tomorrow Knighty

Wait? What?! You're...

*looks at current date*

Oh right. :ajbemused:

*cough* dat date *cough*


p.s. wtf is a gold member?

Alright, I'll see you again tomorrow...

see you in a week

How did you know about the contract killer I sent after you?! Obviously he didn't do a very good job, if you found out...

Happy April 1st to you too, Knighty. By the way thanks for my gold account. I'm sure that discount on the new FiMfiction store page will come in handy.

Now's the best time for me to announce the fact that I've been Device Heretic on an alt all along.

Aw, that's sad. Good luck with all your future endeavours!

...Until April 2nd, because if you're not back by then I'll be hiring a contract killer of my own.

Finally my FiMFiction GOLD account has arrived! lol

Sorry to see you go, dude. Take care, and I for one will welcome you back. :eeyup:

Wait IT'S NOT EVEN TOMORROW YET :raritydespair:

cool story bro see you when the jimmy neutron reboot comes in and makes us write erotica full steam

As of April 1st, 2013, I, knighty, will no longer run and maintain Fimfiction.net. Instead, I relinquish full control of the site to my best friend and homosexual life partner, Poultron.

:rainbowlaugh: Oh dear, tell me it's not Comic Sans again.

962795 That explains... a little.

Hmmmmmm that seems reasonable.

Eh, this place was Squaresville anyway. Later, losers.

You will probably be missed! Farewell!

Now can anybody tell me why I only see one gold brick beside my name? I paid for more than that! :flutterrage:

If you refresh the comments your Gold Bar Goes away lol

Can I anticipate an Equestria Girls section soon after Lord Poultron assumes control? I can suggest some excellent banners to advertise the new section after it opens.

Goodknight sweet prince :pinkiesad2:

Obvious April Fools joke is obvious. 0/10.
I could do better than this when I was five.

Good luck with ur future!

Since I don't really know where else to ask this...
Is this why I'm suddenly a "Gold Member"? Also, what does that even mean?
And if this is actually real and not a prank because it's April first wherever you live, have a good life.

I will miss you my good sir

i'll miss you:fluttercry:

Best April 1st post from any site. :trollestia:

:rainbowlaugh:

It's 4/1 over on your side of the pond already :raritywink:
I'm enjoying my "gold member" status until it switches back to normal!

962795 You shut your filthy mouth! Device Heretic is our king, I won't tolerate your blatant impersonation of the one true author on this site

What's with this gold member thing? Is it something new I missed?

On the one hand, yes, I do own a calendar.
Like, srsly, they're pretty cheap.
Most people own them.

On the other hand,

I've been asking for months for a proper sequel to My Little Dashie, and you guys just haven't written enough of them.

I laughed.

Still, ur a faget op.

HECK YE- er, what?

KTHNXBAI

962783

If either you or someone in your name donated to knighty on his tumblr you should have Gold Member status soon if not already. It will give you access to additional features and restricted sections of the site in the future.

962801 It is in Britain though, where knighty lives!

There was also some sort of ad earlier about a Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover, so the British get going early, I suppose. XD

Guess I should admit now I'm actually Elvis.

Knighty is best pony.

I know that Poultron will carry the same spirit of passive conflict avoidance I tried to hold myself to, and I wish him and you all the best in Fimfiction's future.

It's good to know you're at least aware that you can be a lazy b:yay:ard sometimes.

EDIT: Hey! Gold Status! Kick Ass!

Jesus, I had completely forgotten what day it was tomorrow.

Well played, Knighty.

Have fun until tomorrow! :pinkiehappy::derpytongue2:

What the Hell? Anyone know about the Gold Member thing?
