    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.


    "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 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 » Galacon · 11:08am Jul 26th, 2018

I will be at galacon this weekend so if you see me feel to say hi!

Report knighty · 3,969 views · #Galacon
Comments ( 50 )

I will also be there this weekend

Welcome to germany :rainbowwild:

So how can one recognize it is you/ how to find you?

I, too, shall be there

I'm going to be there too, please PM me if you wanted to scription of what I look like

Well, asking younger girls for what they look like and to meet them at galacon sounds a bit creepy in my ears. :raritywink: Still if you make a puplic post about your visit there or something and I notice you there, I say hi. :twilightsmile:

(Was ich meine ist, sollten wir uns per Zufall begegnen freue ich mich natürlich darüber und unterhalte mich gerne mit dir, aber es wäre komisch explizit nach einer Beschreibung deiner Person zu fragen. Also wenn du einen generellen post darüber machst wie man dich erkennt, halte ich nach dir ausschau:pinkiesmile:)

Just for all people going there too, it will be HOT! 🌞 ( > 30°C) We have a heatwave in germany at the moment. Be prepared :raritywink:

gonna be there as well. Hope it won't be too hot :rainbowlaugh:


( > 30°C) We have a heatwave in germany

Europe must be great if your heatwaves are only 30°C.

Bad Horse started this group to help people to plan/meet up/whatever, if they wish, at conventions.
There is an entry for Galacon.

Remember that not all Europeans have air conditioning though.

Huh. Apparently Fimfiction's Block button doesn't work.

I'll say hi to you right now, cutie

Do you accept drink and chat invitations from strangers?

Hope to see you all there!

Without conditioning. Unless my thermometer is broken. It is 50°C I am literally dying of heat, while chugging down the water like crazy.
This is Lithuania btw. I don't know, and don't wanna know how hot it is in desert countries.

P.s. That's the temperature in an apartment.

Try 97 with a heat index of 105

Site Owner

I'll have my name badge on. I'm fairly nondistinctive otherwise unfortunately

With the amount of people at the con it will be difficult to find you then:twilightoops:

Do you think you could post how your clothes look like or better your location during the con here at some point. I think it would be great to meet you in person for once, but finding you in a mass of people only by your small badge seems unlikely. At least if you don't gather a crowd around you of course:raritywink:

Edit: And there could also people who simple write your name on their badge and fake to be you if there is no option to really tell it is you.

Site Owner

Somehow i doubt people will fake being me :p I'll wear my fimfic tshirt at least one of the days which is pretty easy to see

Don't forget to stay hydrated, Knighty:rainbowwild:

it also depends on what you are used to in your own country. Over 30°C does not happen very often over the year, so we are not that used to it. Just talking with a friend who lives in Canada where it was over 40 not long ago makes me sweat :rainbowlaugh:

Well for germany it is hot, not for all of europe.

Average german summer is 20-25° and rain half of the time. Now we have 38° and no rain for two weeks :fluttershbad:

Ok so it will be a game of find waldo knighty, first one spot him wins :rainbowwild:

Edit: Well, you could have told that there is a photo of you hidden in your blogs:derpytongue2: That makes finding you 20%cooler easier:trollestia:

Hab Spaß! (:

Curses.... i have summer college classes and im broke af. No cons for me this year. Send many pics so i may see!!!

Am I going to see you at Family Feud or Trixie Wants YOU! ? :moustache:

Site Owner

No I'm just sort of ambling around

Not there, but I am back in Germany for the weekend, so I'm saying hi from afar. :twilightsmile:

Site Owner

I'm gonna wear my fimfic shirt tomorrow. I get nervous so I dunno why I made this post in retrospect >_>

Don't you worry knighty, germans don't bite and galacon is a friendly place:twilightsmile: By the way have you seen the sphinx? That was cool cosplay:raritystarry:

It just would be nice to meet you in person foronce when one get the oportunity:pinkiehappy:

Trixie wants you was great, wasn't it?:pinkiehappy:
Was you part of the Players?

I wasn't, was a bit late to sign up sadly.
Did you hear about the short-term writing contest from the Blind Brainstorm workshop though?

Damn. I'm in Germany now as well, and I was really thinking of visiting Galacon once again (I was there in 2014).
but I kinda just... didn't. Dunno why. Probably because I stopped being as interested and as active in the community as I used to be.
Anyway, have fun guys

No, so far I only know that 'red hat brony' make a panel about writing tomorrow.

I live in Denmark and I remember watching the Galacon livestream in 2012.

Did anyone see the new Equestria Girls Special teaser at SDCC?

Wish I could see this sooner. Was also in galacon

I think I saw you at the Writing Panle on Sunday, but I'm not sure :derpytongue2:

Site Owner

I was at the front and had my fimfic shirt on

then it was you :twilightsmile:
I was the guy a few seets right from you. Was arguing with myself if I should say hi, but I'm just too shy sometimes :fluttercry:

Site Owner

I know that feel bro. I thought I saw you glancing at me :p

oh gosh xD
I first saw a glimpse of your name on the tag and after that I tried to look closer without being to obvious :rainbowlaugh:

Site Owner

Mission failed :derpytongue2:

yeah, subtlety was never part of me xD

Site Owner

Well if you happen to go next year and I do too, just poke me whenever, I really don't mind. Doesn't have to be a big deal, can just say hi if you want heh
