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!

How long do stories take to get approved? I'm waiting anxiously for my first story to get approved.

I'd like to report that I can not upload a story, or new chapter. I have no idea what is happening but I hope someone can find an answer.

It keeps saying I'm over the word limit when I'm only a little over two thousand.

Someone is harassing me, and he won't leave me alone. I tried to block him, but it just keep on coming except for my channel, and I don't know why. It's driving me crazy!

This is a bit of an obvervation and a question rolled into one. The FAQ does not have a Link in the Stories section regarding the time it takes for Proof Readers to go over a first story.

I know people are busy and have lives to live, but what is the estimated time it takes? Having submitted my first story, i am left wondering if the time table is hours, days or weeks for a proof reader to aprove or deny my first story.

Futhermore, if it is rejected, do i get a notification explaining why it is rejected and the opportunity to correct any failures.

EDIT: Use the image embed function to the left. It's the green and blue icon. I don't use Imgur so I don't know what kind of content it supports but I'm guessing that it must support some kind of video that you'd use the other embed for.

Hi. I really hate to post on this thread, as it may make me seem like an idiot, but I have a minor technical question.

I was writing a blog post and tried to embed a couple of screenshots I had saved to Imgur -- which the helpful text box clearly says is supported. However, every permutation of the link I tried (obviously I did a basic copy-paste first) gave me "Invalid URL". This did not happen when I embedded a Youtube video on the same blog, nor was embedding Imgur content a problem for me a week or so earlier. Is there something I missed or is it the site?

Hey, guys. I was just trying to submit a new story, and have filled in all the appropriate blanks (short description, long description, and well over 1,000 words in the story), but am unable to do so. Could I have someone take a look at it and see if everything is on order? I'd much appreciate some help.

edit: Nevermind. Forgot to hit publish on the chapter.

There are two ways to see what messages you have that are unread:

1. Unread messages, when you're looking at your list of PM's, will appear as a brighter color than the read ones.

2. Underneath the inbox buttong, there'll be an option for "select". Hover over it, click "unread" and an x will appear next to any message you haven't read.

Hope that helps!

Hi! I don’t know where else to really ask this. But on my PMs, it says I have 1 unread message but I can’t find it for the life of me.

Posted it on Discord as well, but noting that there's only 5 site staff there, I thought it'd be easier for all of them to see this dude insulting them here. That, and I don't know who to send this to.

I'm not sure who would be best to deal with this one, but there seems to be an issue between either Firefox 58.0 and the CSS you guys are using or one of the add-ons I've got - I'm guessing Zoom Page WE or Zoom Image. One way or another though some of the stories, when I go to view them extend past the page border, or at least past the right border for the title and menu area. It's not all the stories, so I'm not sure what's specifically causing it, but some of them I have to zoom the web page out or scroll it right to read all the story, others are fine with my default settings. No idea if anyone else is having similar issues either so it's entirely possible there's some wackiness with how my machine is set up or something.

I was about to contact the proofreader in I'm afraid to post my fiction for the negative feedback it might receive. What's the best course of action? from the help menu, but there's an error 404. What should I do?


I don't plan on using this site anymore, so can I have my account deleted?
Addendum: I also lost the password to my really old account Psycho-genius brony, so could that be deleted too? It doesn't respond to me using password reset, even though I used both of my emails.
It's really edgy, so I would like it gone as well.

My computer is not recognizing my fimfiction account. At all. I thought I was locked out or banned or something, but it is just claiming that my password isn't my password. I've tried to reset it, but I can't get a reset email. Help?

How can I find how many times I have been blocked? I don't care about who did it I just want numbers. Thank you.

Yeah, sorry, I don't mean to come off as an asshole here, but the ads on this site are getting out of hand. It was okay before, but now it's cutting into stories and is honestly very distracting. The least you can do knighty is not apply them to the most vital part of this site.

I have "Caramel's Light" by Squeak-anon stuck in my favorites. I don't have it added to any of my libraries.

Uhhh is princess molestia supposed to be stuck in my favorites... not favorited.

Hello I was curious how long does it take before a story can be publishable as i just finished adding in the chapters to my story and when i tried to publish it, it kept saying I can't, so i'd like to know how long it is gonna be.

While I was commenting on groups, people start hating me as my comments are terrible so I deleted my comments so they won’t attack me with dislikes. Can you help me how to be kind to others please?:raritydespair:

I fixed it. Now you can republish it for your approval.
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
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.

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

Professor Plum

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?


Seems so.

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

~Skeeter The Lurker

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?

Oh. Then good job doing that.


That's the end goal, chief.

~Skeeter The Lurker

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.
