NOTE: Please see horizon for all requests in the future.

With the rash (such as it is) of random people adding their fics to this group, I have at long last gotten off my be-hind and done the thing I said needed to be done to stop it.

This comes with problems, but first, how it works.

If you submit a story to any writeoff event, leave a message here after the results are in and you'll get contributor status. Include a link to your story, especially if your username is different on the two sites.

Contributors are now the only people who can add fics to the folders in this group. So if you want to be able to do that with your own fics, you'll want contributor status. :B And I'm making it contingent on participation so people can't just join up and start adding their fics.

Meanwhile, I've given contributor status to a bunch of people, but I probably fucked it up for two reasons: I was going off memory (mine is terrible and I was basically just adding people whose names I recognized), and going from the back of the list to the front means I missed a whole bunch of people because of the way fimfic reorganizes the member list once you've changed someone's status. :|

So if you've participated in any writeoff and don't have contributor status, leave a message here. Again, leave a link to your story. If it's on Fimfic and hasn't been added, I'll be happy to do that for you as well, just so you don't have to. :)

Okay, that's it! We shouldn't have to worry about random stories showing up in the group anymore! :B

(Also, if I don't respond to your request in like 24 hours, please bump the thread. It easily gets lost in the limited group view.)

How can we tell whether we have contributor status?

That is a very good question that I do not have an answer to c.c I mean, the convoluted way to check is to try and add something to this group, and if the folders are locked, then you don't have it. Or you could check the member list?

There's a fancy schmancy search feature on the member list.

Member list checked, status confirmed. Thanks. I recommend that option to anyone else who's unsure.

Excellent, thank you! I don't think I'd have missed any of them if I had seen them. :B

And thank you for pointing this out, or TD's list would have been awful. :D

So I'm a doofus and I accidentally removed myself from the group. Added myself back promptly, but my contributor status is gone. :facehoof:

Any chance that a capable and dashingly handsome admin would fix this for me?

Oh, so that's why I couldn't add Who Will Guard The Dreamers to the Great Expectations group. I thought I was just doing something wrong. Could I get a nudge, please?

I'd appreciate an add. Here are some links to my entries, if you need them.

Question: do all compilation stories go in the "2012– — Compilations" folder?
edit:
... or rather, should we add them only to that folder?

Chinchillax

I would like to be a contributor.

Got you both!

Apologies, Spectral, for not seeing this sooner. :) And yes, all compilations go only in the compilations folder. (I suppose if you wrote a bunch of entries for one event, put them into a single collection and weren't going to add stories from any other event to that collection, you could stick it under the event instead.)

Okay, well, at least two people have asked to see the finished version of my entry for AMoP, so on the assumption i to manage to eventually complete it, i am requesting Contributor status so that i will be able to share it with them.

I'm finally doing some editing on past write-off submissions and would like to ask for contributor status in case I eventually get one of them finished. Here's a link to my last submission.

Just as a general announcement, I'm taking over these duties from 4127311. I'll do my best to keep an eye on this thread — but group threads don't send out notifications when they update, so if you speak up here and don't get a prompt response, either >>tag me in a reply or PM me. :twilightsmile:

I should probably sign up as a contributor. I've got a write-off story with my per-readers right now and it should be on the site in a day or two.

Ah, I mean your best interests. We are your friends. We will construct additional friend-based stories. And submit them to the writeoffs. When it is applicable.

Top of the second page. Comment here if you've submitted a story to a Writeoff Association competition and want to be able to add Writeoff-prompted stories to our group folders.

Obligatory reminder: I'm the one handling the membership maintenance duties here, and I'll do my best to keep an eye on this thread — but group threads don't send out notifications when they update, so for the promptest response, either >>tag me in a reply or PM me your request. :twilightsmile:
