About the recent NSFW Image Policy site post · 9:30pm Jun 22nd, 2015

It's either Google Adsense or Donating Money to the Site to keep it up.

You want your clop? Go to Derpibooru or R34 Paheal.

Need to rely on clickbait cover art to gather in the views on get on that precious Feature Box? How about actually practicing your writing so you can be proud of making top quality stories (or stories that you can care about)?

This site is ultimately about the stories, not the cover arts.

It's not the end of the world. Knighty isn't Hitler. Does he gas you at night? No? That's what I thought.

Oh, and thank you Moon_Fire for noting that fact that we still have minors on the site. And don't give me bs about how minors shouldn't be reading clopfics anyway. I understand that, but that doesn't excuse anyone from posting borderline porn where the minors can see them in the first place.

best thing I've heard all day

While I know this blog isn't aimed at me, oddly enough it feels like I'm the only one who has the 'why is this a problem?' attitude about the whole thing...
It's the internet, I know as much as anyone that anonymity is going to let the worst parts of people's personalities come out... but... things are just starting to feel a bit too extreme. It makes me fear for FIMFiction when I start reading this stuff.

I'm not going to lie, I do take a look at some of the more mature stories from time to time, and there are good mature stories that have garnered my interest... but to say to move all of that stuff to a different site? isn't that a tad... much?

I actually think this should be a Mature site since (mostly) only those who are sixteen or older are the ones to get on here. But I can see where they're coming from with the "no NSFW pics" since there is a minority that are minors on this site.

Ok that's just really a barrel of laughs. Extreme? Maybe, but hah this blog post is simply common fucking sense to me. Seriously any decent person would agree with this statement. I remember a time when fics or clopfics didn't rely on clickbait pictures to get on the Feature Box, but now that seems to be a norm and the writing quality on the Feature Box gets shittier as time passes. It shouldn't have to be like that but apparently some think it does and that says a lot about the community on Fimfic. The Feature Box is on the face of the website and if that's filled with cover arts of borderline porn, what does that say about us?

I think that should be good reason enough to have a standard on NSFW pics.

Sometimes knighty gasses me at night. It's really annoying and I wish he would cut it out.

*sigh*
I'm hoping it's just fart gas you're talking about. #Notmyfetish fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/013/8/1/twieww_by_comeha-d72140f.png

3171735 you have no idea.

3171772 ...aw fuck.

Those tags though.
3171775 do you see any pandas?

3171885
I'm an avid aggressive tagger on Tumblr. Now knighty is feeding my obsession by putting a tagging system on here.

3171904 can I follow you on tumblr like kwakerjak?

3171701 I agree that we should be upset about what content is shown on the feature box, I get that completely... but the amount of anger and hate that these responses are bringing up... I don't know, it just... it feels like the whole site is going the wrong direction

3171919
sure


3171939
If that's what you think, but again I will reiterate that this isn't the end of the world and yet people are acting like it's an infringement on their freedom. This isn't fucking censorship. Is Fimfic TRULY keeping people away from porn? Are they the government? Are they literally denying you access to porn? The answer is 'No' to all of them.

I'll say this again: If people really want to get their clop fix, they can go to other websites. Fimfic is not a place meant for clop pics.

3172001 I think we may not be on the same page here...
let's take a moment to step back from this and gather ourselves.

now...

The point I was trying to make is that on both sides of the argument it's a very ridiculous thing to bring up. Not just with the fact that it's being brought up, but moreso on the fact that this IS something that needs to be brought up. I do honestly see your side of this and completely understand, it's just ridiculous that the site is fighting about this in general.

I don't really participate in a lot of the meta commentary myself, I don't blog as often as others do on here... I'm just expressing a point that this all seems... like it shouldn't have been something that needed to be pointed out in the first place.

3172052
To be fair, I wouldn't have participated in this fight if it were not for the people who are utterly complaining and whining about this policy setting in.

3172137 I feel ya dawg... I feel ya... it just gets me to the point where...

But sadly... I have to

On a side note; How's Equestrian Earth going for ya? It's been a while since I actually picked up a chapter of it and I have no idea why I really stopped reading it... I did really like the story.

3172165
What?:rainbowhuh:


3172218
Okay I see where you're going with this now. But eh FimFic drama. What can you do about it? It's like a vortex that draws you in 50 miles away.

As for Equestrian Earth, I haven't done much with it in a month. I got a new editor but I need to talk to him again to see what's he up to. So far he's gone over 3 of the first five chapters (not including chapter 1 he kinda skipped over that because I wanna redo that one). I haven't checked on chapter number 5 though.

As for new chapters, well here's a sneak peek on a one shot I'm doing soon. I'd love to have your comment on the blog post about that. Any sort would do as long as its feedback because I wanna know what readers would think of it.

3172255 good to hear you got a new editor. I'm finally starting to get a bit more confident in my work, breaking word count barriers left and right over here, lol. Started with a goal of at least 1000 and one of the recent chapters on my latest story just broke the 7000 count without even trying, debating on whether to make it into two chapters or just cut and paste the new chapter into the old chapter and just see how far the chapter goes along before the episode is done... the more I think about it the more I want to do the latter... but I also like it as a two-parter... so I'm really torn on which to use

3172255 ever played Fallout 3?

3172486
On the Xbox 360 I used to have, yeah I had the game.


3172322
That's pretty great. In my experience though, doing like separate parts of a chapter can be a nightmare. The Rainbow Dash mini arc of Equestrian Earth (Chapter 11) was separated into 5 different parts and it took over the course of a year to get that done. I think everyone liked it and the pacing was done decently, but again it was a nightmare to get it all done.

3173013 Fortunately for me it's in a two-parter only, and I have the chapters set up so there's at least one finished chapter between the one I'm working on and the one I've submitted, it's worked out for me so far and I'm just so happy with the story!

3173935
That's good, that's good.:twilightsmile:

3175144
Ahhh a recent favorite of mine.

3175158
ponut joe is awesome yes i get it.:moustache:

3176387
You think that'll stop minor from going on the site?
At the same time yes I know the NSFW policy won't work by itself... but that's why I'm gonna now actively report any stories that's breaking the policy.

3177132
True but what about the kids who didn't come to Fimfic to see porn pics?

3178376
Well frankly I'm still fucking mad about clickbait cover arts overall.

3178563
Then at least we're on the same page now.
