    The Day of the Dead Anthology

    The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is a now-famous tradition from ancient times that has been a huge part of Mexican Culture through the centuries. Like so many things in Mexico, it's influenced strongly by certain aspects of the Aztec people.

    It has shaped the way those of us with that heritage look at life and death in many ways, and most importantly on the remembrance of, and honoring the deceased. We traditionally decorate little altars dedicated to the memories of those that passed away… but it's not a somber occasion.

    PSA: Using AIs to Write and Publish Stories in Fimfiction

    Hello everyone, this is a PSA (Public Service Announcement, for those of ESL) to put to rest consistent questions about using AI to 'write' stories and publish them here. This is not intended as a poll or a request for feedback. It is exclusively a clarification on an already-existing rule.

    People ask: "Can I, oh great and powerful D, post a story or chapter that I got ChatGPT to write for me?!"

    And the answer, my friend, is... No.

    Absolutely not. Not in a thousand years!

    Because you didn't write it.

    It is not your creation. You are NOT the author. In fact, you are the opposite.

    There seems to be some confusion when interpreting the following rule:

    Don’t Post (Content)

    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!

Site Post » Fimfiction.net - Now owned by Facebook! · 2:40pm Apr 1st, 2014

Hey folks! It's been quite a momentous year for Facebook, and moving on through 2014 we'd like to purchase even more companies to assimilate them into our "social" network. It's definitely about being social and not about peddling products or selling your data or anything.

Thus, I'd like to announce our latest purchase; Fimfiction.net! Following our recent purchase of Oculus VR, fimfiction seemed like an obvious next step. Fanfiction can clearly be enhanced with more ad....venturous settings. Imagine reading a fanfic and the world comes to life around you full of ad....renaline pumping moments.

Don't worry, this purchase can only be good for Fimfiction, with our infinite amount of money and resources how could anything go wrong? Soon you'll be able to share all your favourite clopfics with your friends and family, and best of all? You don't even have to do anything! Just log in to the site and your entire browsing history will be available for your closest family to enjoy. Isn't sharing great? Starting tomorrow, all accounts must use their real name and address to use fimfiction. This means we can target ad....orable, cute shipping stories to you!

We'll also be changing the feed to further emphasise the social aspects of the site. We'll be adding the ability to post status updates so you can let everyone know when you're eating a delicious lunch, or even just that you woke up!

We hope you guys are as excited about this acquisition as we are!

btw we sacked knighty

Thumbs up to the future!

Quick, someone change their name to knighty!

But but but. Fimfiction have a dislike button! :trollestia:

Yawn.

Could've come up with better, methinks.

It hurts to laugh, but this is amazing!

I'm in talks with Facebook right now to make the site into Nyxfiction.net. I know you guys have all been clamoring for more Past Sins, so we're sure this move will go over pretty well!

Oh thank Celestia, you scared for a second

Hahaha! This was hilarious! :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Why isn't

a link somewhere where you get feedback on your pressing. I am really disappointed, at least knighty bothered to put dumb links to things in the oddest of places.

Can we get him back for just that at least?
