    I do not see where I can sort by these options… Obviously I am missing something… I only see the normal sort options….

      The first drop down menu to the far left has what you’re looking for.

    Hello. I’m not sure where I should ask this, because my email seems to be acting up and won’t send anything, so I can’t email support@fanfiction.com.

    I have a question: why does the ‘no “you” based/second person POV’ rule exist? Why is it categorized under the ‘no interactive stories’ rule? The guidelines say:

    2. Any form of interactive entry: choose your adventure, second person/you based, Q&As, and etc.

    I have read a story in 2nd person POV that was not interactive in the least. Somebody reported it. Does anyone know why second person/you based stories are not allowed, and why they are under the category ‘interactive entry’? The story was proper second person POV, without anything remotely interactive with my readers/reviewers at all. Second person POV is a style of writing, I think, and does not include the reader any more than first or third person POV stories do.

      This goes for ALL second persons work, “you” is the reader even when “you” is supposed to be the canon character.

      I agree with Kat/Katie/Katherine. The second person is a literary device. Why is this not allowed? Just wondering. Thanks.

    Loved the changes here! I like that i can sort by completed stories in the individual communities, it really really helps!

    I did notice one thing, you have a sort in the community list Stories, but whe you try to sort by that nothing happens and you still have this listed as archived.

    I refer to the below comment by Kat. I’m sorry to say that I don’t see the rationale for removing stories based on ‘you’ perspective. I understand that you guys have been making some big changes but this is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard, including taking down fics featuring RPP. It’s no wonder that more and more people are abandoning this site.
