Fimfiction Staff

Without dedicated staff on hand, Fimfiction would be a ship (heh) without a crew, destined to crash at any time on a rocky shore. The guys below all contribute in various ways to making sure the site stays functional throughout the day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Oh, and please don't bug us about being on the staff team at the moment, we're always on the look out for good members to pick up when we need new people!

I fixed it. Now you can republish it for your approval. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/398076/dino-saurian-rex
P.S. I didn't put the crossover on XCOM. Sorry.

On the second thought, I'm going to reedited the story because the viewers are judging me so I'll republish it soon.

I uploaded this story so I want you guys to preread this on https://www.fimfiction.net/story/398076/dino-saurian-rex-season-1-volume-1
It's got dinosaurs and humans in Equestria in it during an alien invasion. It's also has Chrysalis as the main villain. P.S. this is a XCOM crossover.

(story: From Nothing to Something)

I miss the old Luna formatting, and even loved the other character-eccentric ones. I get how Dash, Fluttershy, and especially Celestia was a real eye sore, but I really want some back. Just done better or something? I also always wanted there to be Spike.

Or, even better, make a custom mode. Let us pick our own format-colour schemes, with the others being the defaults to chose from so customizing would be merely an option. You guys really like making us use codes, like [i]this][/i] = this, so maybe make it so we can copy a code from said customization and share them with others. Like how I can make one for Lighting Dust, so it would be outside-yellow, inside-turquoise.

I just really like format customization.:twilightsheepish:

This page is currently giving me "500 Internal Server Error". The same user's blog posts, stories, etc load fine. Perhaps an issue in one of the user page widgets?

Also, it loads fine in a mobile phone browser. The mobile version of fimfic doesn't display user page widgets, which is another pointer in that direction.

Is there a way to tell which of the stories in a bookshelf have sequels without opening the main page for each individual story?

And if there isn't a way, can a "series" tag status/tag be created that automagically gets applied to any story with a sequel or that is a sequel so we can use it to find stories with sequels? I'm getting kind of bummed missing out on sequels I never knew existed for stories I've enjoyed.

The "Other" staff are just users who have the power to post site blogs. They don't have any input in moderation, site decisions, etc. Any queries should be directed to the Admins, Mods, or Story Approvers.

Admittedly, the title of "Other" isn't very clear. I'll bring it up, see if we can change it. But I don't see per-user descriptions being added for that.

3541
Certainly not 'Others.' It would be nice if they could have a separate description from their 'about' section.

I don't see what that would change? The roles are self-explanatory.

Could each staff member be given their own description instead of just copying their profile description?

3525

Seems so.

That just leaves the question of "why put an ad there".

~Skeeter The Lurker

3516
I assume it's an oversight that will be fixed.

Uh hey wtf why am I seeing advertisement when I'm reading a story I don't wanna see advertisement

So yeah.

I pay you $20 to support the site. I also pay so I don't see ads.

So why the fuck am I seeing ads in the middle of the stories I am reading?

~Skeeter The Lurker

So how many times am I going to have to click the okay button for the cookies thing before it finally goes away for good?

Are there plans to ever re-implement words read, or do the devs still think it would inundate the servers too much?

3509
Oh. Then good job doing that.

3508

That's the end goal, chief.

with the new update came a lot of new stuff. I like most of it except how now there are other series. This is a little annoying as this makes FimFiction look like a GenFic site.

I am on mobile and there is an ad for some stupid yay yaying yay minivan that drags the screen ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM (also losing my place) THEN KEEPS IT THERE FOR AT LEAST 10 SECONDS EACH BLOODY TIME. While writing this it did exactly that at least 20 times, maybe more.

So this new message is misleading.

Or you should remove unpublished passwords to give to people to, you know, see "unreleased content," since that's the point of them. I've used this option many times with friends. Maybe I should be banned? Or is this something else this message is talking about? Should clarify on that.

Just keep an eye out. Plum wasn't on the staff originally.

3488
So is there anyway I can be part of the staff then?

3470
I believe we lost the great Bearded One

3469
Oh. I joined in June.

3468
Yeah, they came in a few months ago. As in, in like may.

3467
Wha? But when I first joined she was here.

3466
No. ChappedPenguinLips.

3465
Yeah, by JackRipper, right?

3464
Yeah. You just missed an opportunity too. A mod stepped down a couple months ago and was replaced.

3462 They are not an admin. They are other. Which means they are important (retired mods, but Everfree Northwest is a convention that comes on to tell everyone about it once a year)

3461
Well what about the one who hasn't been on since May 1st?

3459
You're not going to become a mod. They don't need them. If you really want to become one, wait till one steps down and they usually post in discord or something a forum you can apply at.

Is there anyway that I could be part of the staff?

First off, if the "staff on hand" wasn't dedicated enough, the ship wouldn't even reach a shore, let alone leave one in the first place. Besides, they've crashed on shore, apparently. I mean, at least they're on land.

Second, not "all" contribute. One certain "other" has been inactive since the 1st of May.

Third, it's 365 and 1/4 days a year. This is why we have leap years.

Lastly, can I be on staff? :trollestia:

Get R3KT Fimfiction admin :moustache:

For whatever reason, my only unsubmitted story is dated back to exactly 4:00pm, December 31st, 1969. I feel I should turn said fic into a "Back to the Future" cross-over instead. I might need 1.21 gigawatts of power, though.

Dashie, can ya lend me a hoof?

Few things. One, why did it take you guys so long to figure out that deadmanx513's two main stories were what you considered to be MST3K-style stories? The main six watch Death Battle has been around for months, and was very popular.

Second, why, oh why, did you delete them? A LOT of bronies here loved them, and poor deadmanx513 already had to deal with some jerks from fanfiction calling themselves 'critics unite' insulting a story he was working on over there, threatening to bring it down, and somehow convincing the staff over there to do so. Have they taken over here, too?
