Are there any archived snapshots of the site to be able to see deleted stories/check how many stories may have been deleted that were favourited? Looking for a story that i favourited years back that clearly isn't there (or on the site at all as far as i can tell) & would like to reread, & also check if there are other stories that may have been deleted but don't remember off the top of my head.

Am I allowed to host my own writing competition? If so, what prizes am I allowed to give out?
Cheers!

When two people write a story how can we mark that its two of us, not just me?

Hi all, quick question regarding the view count on stories.

So my story The Lost Ponies: Jurassic Park currently displays having 798 views in the 'general statistics' section, but on the overall views on the 'stats' page it says it's got over 4000. (See attached image). So I guess my question is this: Why does the viewcount display as a lot less than it apparently actually is? I'm not sure if I'm missing something but I've been trying to fathom it out to no avail. If anyone out there knows what's occurring please do let me know, I'd be interested in finding out!

Thanks all. Happy writing and happy reading.

How do I put an image in a chapter?

My notifications bar says that someone is watching me. What does that mean?

Yeah, that's what it was.

check your settings to see if mature filters are turned on. new chapter alerts will still trigger from favorited stories that won't otherwise show up in broad search results.

Will there be any moderation for authors/their stories, that have been absent for long periods of time?
As in, if an author is absent for more than several years, their accound is blocked by Fimfiction staff, and all stories that are not finished marked as cancelled?

My favorites library is claiming that there's a unread chapter, but I have none. How do I get rid of the alert?

I tried that, but every time I click "save settings" it says there's an error with my settings. What am I doing wrong?
Edit: I just tried saving a new bio with a shorter character count, and that worked, but for some reason it wouldn't let me use one with just under <250 characters, which is the stated limit. Is the actual limit something like 200 or 150?

Thank you. I've decided to reimagine Assassinverse - The Dark Knight, even showing Hux choosing to save his own skin, my OC character Commander Starbreaker fighting Captain Phasma just to get to Re, giving four Storm troopers a message to give personally to Snoke of Hux and Phasma's betrayal, even Starbreaker almost sacrificing himself to save Ren. He's very loyal to him that way.

Why did you use deleted comments section? I got cyber-bullied because of that!

If I'm remembering correctly, you can't see the groups from the mobile page. However, you should be able to toggle "show desktop site" on your phone if it's safari or Chrome, not sure about others. Then you'll be able to see the groups to the right of the story.

This page is more for questions about the site itself, but here's a quick guide. Also, Fimfiction has its own writing guide, which is an excellent resource and covers many points like that.

3699
To create the story, go under your name and click on the new story button, like so:

From there, fill out all of the required information in the boxes, create a new chapter, and start writing!

Okay, so I kinda had this problem ever since I started. The problem is numbers in a story, I don't know the proper way to put numbers in my stories. What I mean by the proper way, I mean by the correct way of saying it.
For example here is a decade:

1980s

Would it be the

1980s or nineteen eighties?

Another example would be a year:

2016

Would it be

2016 or two thousand sixteen or two thousand and eighteen or twenty sixteen?

Someone, please answer because I am confused what to type into my story.

Is there a way to view all the groups a single story belongs to? I know I used to be able to do that back before the big layout change, but I'm not sure if it's still possible. That's mainly how I used to find new stories, by browsing the groups a story I liked was part of. I usually use the site's mobile version, so if that's a problem or not I don't know.

3694
I see.

(NOTE: I did not do this, I know a person who did and was wondering if it was allowed)

3691
From the drop down menu (or left sidebar if you're on mobile), click on settings.

It'll bring you to this page, where you can then edit your bio in that first box.

No. Also, that's a terrible way to handle criticism.

Is deleting and then resubmitting a story to curb dislikes allowed?

Hey I'm a complete noob at this does anyone know how to make a bio?

Hello there, I seem to have problem changing my account information (actually anything in My Account section) when i open up for instance My Account --> Password there is nothing on that page, the same goes for Account, Settings, Local Settings and Upload Avatar (Header Color, Authentication and User Page work fine). I'm sorry if there is some obvious fix or i just toggled something by mistake but anyway i would be thankful for any help. :heart:

pardon me... i am trying to use an image in a story to visualize something and it isn't working... its this image btw http://www.modelermagic.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/HW-009_box1.jpg it only shows the black and white box with an X on it WHUT DO!?

I am working on a story in TextEdit. How do I upload the text to the submissions page? There does not seem to be a "Select File" button.

To mark a story as a prequel, just take the original story and mark it as a sequel of the new story.

You cannot have multiple stories marked as a sequel of a single story. The way you do it is one is a sequel to another, to another, etc.

3682
I was asking how to make more than one sequels (like this is the second sequel of *something*), or a prequel of the original.

...
But a having a prequel to a story would make the original story a sequel to the prequel?

I don't understand your problem.

3680
I did that last time, and the original says that it's a sequel to the prequel. *shrugs* I don't get it.

3679
Similar case, call it a Sequel to the original story, then mention in the description what it takes place before the first story

3678
What about the prequel of the original?

3677
Your best bet is probably making your third story be a sequel to The second and mention in the description that it is the third story in a series

How should I get more than one sequels in my story?

I submitted a story and it got evaluated within minutes, however it failed. The next time I submitted it I fixed all the problems mentioned, it's been two days and I haven't been sent a response, does I have something to do with my story?

Thanks in advanced:derpytongue2:

Use the "add link" tool and paste their profile link there.

Like this:

How do you tag another user in a blog post or in a description of a story? So when they click on the name it will take them directly to said user's page?

3670
That would actually be more work, unpublishing the chapters. I already did it though, and it doesn't do any of the things I was afraid of

3669
I think it would be easier to unpublished all of your chapters, edit / rewrite them, and change the short and long descriptions so people know you're doing it.

I would like to revoke my story so I can finish chapter rewrites. Thereby the returning fans in light of the new season don't see my less-good version.

Will I lose any of my story statistics by doing this though? The favorites, views, comments, bookshelves?

3667
Well, there’s nothing definite yet. Just kicking around ideas for now. But, if I ever manage to start a chapter, I’ll think of you.

3666
I see
yes I try to do the same but it never works I was wondering if I could be allowed to take a look at what you have and perhaps give you some ideas for further parts of this story

3665
Adding a horizontal line doesn't work, though thanks for trying. What I’m looking to do is simply write a paragraph, skip 2 or lines, write another paragraph and not have them pushed together when I save and publish.

3662
use ctrl+h and you will get this


Anyone have any idea how the referrals thing works?

How Can I find history on Chats and old notifications?
