Could we have a thread for favourite actors/actresses (not just based on looks).

Done!

A few years ago I put in a request that they secure the site with SSL, and it looks like they finally got around to it in their last round of updates. Welcome to the 21st century ff.net. XP

how do I check reviews on my published stories?

Easy, you sign in, go to the legacy story stats, under stats, and it shows you the number of reviews and you can follow a link to the review page for each story.

We need a 12th chat thread, pronto.

Is there a rule which says Randy has to create the chat threads???????????

Nimbus Llewelyn

No, but he is forum admin, and it is generally him who does so.

Yes, I am he who makes and names the threads with my customary insanity. I have just done so.

Excellent.

Is there a thread that discusses etiquette or recommended process for working with reviewers and beta-readers? I'm looking for guidance on the most effective way to work with others to get good result and not step on toes. For example, I assume that you should only have ONE Beta reader. Right?

You could discuss it in our Fandom Ethics thread here: http://forum.fanfiction.net/topic/56768/14298857/21/#49689504

For example, I assume that you should only have ONE Beta reader. Right?

I have one beta-reader, and then I submit his polished manuscript to a writers group for further nit-picking and general impressions. I would not have three beta-readers going over your manuscript at one time. Sequentially, maybe, but then you run the risk of undoing one another's work.

I have two requests: One, for a thread of what you consider your best work (as adorable as it will sound, children don't count), in either Original fiction, non fiction, fanfiction, fanart or music etc.. posibly called 'Magnum Opus' or some such. The second for a reworking of Christmas songs and sentiments. 'We Wish you an Obscene Christmas' or something similar.

I'd second the first one. As it were! I thought there was a best of the best thread here and I was looking for one the other day but perhaps I was thinking of another forum. Or possibly it was deleted during the great purge. Either way, one would be nice!

Let me set my mind to it. Something like "Hello, Mr. Muslim; merry f**king Christmas" from South Park.

I seriously hope you're being funny. If not then .... I'm concerned for you. (darkpaledin)

Never mind, I read your profile. Either you're a troll who is terrible with stereotyping black people or you're being serious which again makes me worry.

Can someone please try and make FFm compatible with Kindle first gen. and the notepad app by 7 dragons? I have a bunch of great story ideas but no way to post them. :'(

Why not just post stories on the site like a regular person?

I could have sworn there was a way to manage your forum thread subscriptions in the GUI, but I can't seem to find it (assuming it ever existed.) Yes, I know I can click the unsubscribe link in the email itself, but does anyone know if there is something to this effect in the user interface... or am I just crazy?

2/20/2012 #145
Thranduil Oropherion Redux

I had to log in to check, because so many of the familiar FFN features have quietly disappeared. It still exists. Upper right, you'll see a button that says 'Topic Subscription'. Click on that and you will get options to either subscribe to a topic or unsubscribe.

As for the option to disable forum thread alerts entirely through your profile preferences, I'll have to go check.

My story has a glitch, and it appears to be a FFN glitch.

My Chapter 12 link is showing Chapter 9's content. I had not made any changes to that chapter, it just suddenly started doing it. The link is:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7452787/12/From_Dust_to_Flesh

Note that the number is correct in the link (12).

When I do a "live preview" it shows the correct Chapter 12 content.

I have tried re-uploading and replacing the file, but of course this doesn't fix it since the content is correct in the live preview. Looks like there is a linking error. The 12 link is pointing at the 9 content. Any suggestions other than (gasp) deleting all chapters from 12 onward and re-uploading them all?

Hep me please! ;-)

Bah. Never mind. It just self-corrected. (shrugs)

2/28/2012 #148
Thranduil Oropherion Redux

Wow. That has me stumped. I'd say to start by checking your 'edit content' boxes very carefully. Especially if you uploaded a new file and replaced the contents of chapter 12 with it.

2/28/2012 #149
Thranduil Oropherion Redux

Bah. Never mind. It just self-corrected. (shrugs)

Hah -- doing the 'Miss Emily Litella' -- "Never mind."

If FFN does not kill us, it makes us stronger.
