    If

    Sometimes, I make the mistake of looking at my stories here and their comment sections, and I get that old itch to make pony stuff again. I had a lot of fun doing it, after all, and I do love to entertain. I still have a lot of trouble getting any creative work done, of course. I haven't even had any real interest in it for quite a while, now. But even beyond that... well...

    A Collab Relic

    A few years back, Samey90 and I started writing a story. A story about a little group of young pony friends hanging out at a lake. We did most of the writing on it, but it kinda fell by the wayside. I drifted away from ponies and retired, and it looked as though the fic might never see the light of day. But now, that story has finally been

    A Surprise Shadowbolts Story

    Do you like the Crystal Prep Shadowbolts? Do you like stories with romance in them? Do you like a grittier and more realistic (and cynical) take on Equestria Girls? Then you might want to have a look at the story below the break. I think you'll like what you find.

    And no, it's definitely not the Shadowbolts Adventures series, if that's what you guessed by who's doing this promotion.

    The New Fimfic

    Is it April again already? Because this new site update is a joke.

    Edit: Okay, it's not a complete joke. There's actually a lot of good stuff in this new update. Bugfixes and cool stuff galore. Buuuut there are also some not-so-good changes, and the flood of new code seems to have broken... everything, at one point or another.

Let’s see...

PINKIE, HAND ME THE TIME MACHINE!

Nope. It’s June.
:facehoof:

I say give it time. A lot of work’s gone into it and I can see a bunch of stuff that’s been improved and added. To be honest, I think a shake-up is what Fimfiction needed.

People said this about the past updates, I say we need to give it time and people will cool off. Seems like you can never make anyone happy on this site.

The visual changes aren't my big issue. Nor are the bugs, though they are a problem. For example, I had to manually code in your comment numbers to be able to reply, because the reply button doesn't work for me. My problems are with the pulling of features and the implementation of new ones that make things worse. We are no longer allowed to format our stories with any spacing, paragraph spacing, or indents. The chapter pages remove all such formatting and convert it into whatever display the reader chooses. Sure, it means people won't complain about indents vs. double-space, but it means we have far less control over our own work. This is not cool. Mix that with lots of little annoyances, like having to scroll to the bottom of a story list to go through the pages and avatars becoming circles sometimes and squares at other times, and I consider this a very mixed update.
