Rolled Back Last Update

09 Mar

We have rolled back our last update due to compatibility issues with some versions of Firefox. Everything has returned to pre-update status until we have a fix ready.

    Thanks! When you get a fix ready, make it so it’ll work on a 3DS, please!

    Is it possible to provide a HTML/BBCode/whatever editor alongside/in place of the upcoming WYSIWYG editor? (In case of replacing, perhaps provide a toggle in the Settings or otherwise use cookies?) Mobile users (most remarkably Opera Mini users) can’t load WYSIWYG editors. (Providing a HTML editor as a button in the WYSIWYG editor is not really useful since mobile users can’t click the button as the WYSIWYG editor doesn’t load, which is the case for the profile editor now.)

      Disabling CSS has always helped me there.

    Yeah, the graphs for story stats has been acting up for me and I don’t know if its due to my cache.

    Hey, Xing?

    Will you allow screenshots in the blog? If so, where would you recommend for the screenshot to be uploaded to?

    I’d like to show the script I suggested earlier, while I can, to make for an better understanding. Please let me know of your answer soon.

    (PS. It might also help if someone got a bug they can’t explain too, so there’s another reason.)

      Whoop, not suggested, but similar to what I had in mind for the said suggestion.

      Sorry for the mix-up.

    I’m still having trouble seeing my charts. I know some others have gotten them back, but I still can’t see mine.

    And this is why the site admins have to roll out a bunch of minor updates before they get to the big ones, so they don’t know if the bugs are being caused by the new updates or a previous problem. That said, when these two updates do get implemented they’ll be a big deal. I mean, quite a few people were complaining about the problems that came with editing the profiles previously.

    When you do roll out the next update, don’t mess the site up and make it crash like it did last year. That was no fun at all. Or better yet, stop updating the site with useless stuff no one really needs and return to your original job of maintaining the site and take care of the stories I reported to you guys ages ago.

      Maintaining a website isn’t just about taking care of rule breakers or making sure the sites coding is up to date. It is also about adding stuff every so often simply because what they’re adding appeals to a broad spectrum of the site members. An update can also be useful despite it not really being needed. People need to keep in mind that other people will find said updates to be appealing as well as useful despite the fact they themselves do not.

      What about it? Rosaria + Vampire has a category already, so I’m not sure what your question is supposed to be.

      Dude, if it’s a particular story you’re looking for and it’s now missing, chances are it was deleted, either by site admins or the writer themselves. Doubtful anyone on the blog can help you out here and tell you where the story went without knowing what the title is, and even then it’s unlikely you’ll know what happened to it.

    Can you also please fix that checkbox in the forum reply? I uncheck it yet the forum which I’m replying to always ends up on my watchlist.

    I’ve been a site member for over ten years, and I’ve always followed the rules here, and helped out by reviewing with tips those who break the rules and reporting those who refuse to follow them.

    I really like this site, so I am asking you to please consider deleting the account of this troll and to also give him an IP ban. I’ve reported this person before and his accounts have been deleted only for him to open them again later.

    Please deal with this troll and please, do consider giving them an IP ban for multiple offenses against this site with spam. Thanks.

    The troll in question can be found in the following link:

      Normally I don’t like it when people bring links here, but if it is a problem troll the site admins are going to want to try and deal with them as soon as possible. Hopefully an IP ban will work.

    On Firefox 10.0.2, the story text is white on a white background and full width, and the width, the background color, and the spacing won’t change at all. Font and size will change, but as I said, it’s all white and is only visible when highlighted.

    Just wondering if this has anything to do with story stats not loading. I’ve been trying for over a week now to check my stats, but all I get is a “Loading chart. Please wait.” message.

    Hello. Is there a location where we can humbly suggest changes we’d like to see implemented on ff.net?

    Speaking of fixes, are there any plans to re-enable the Sans-Serif font option? It’s been identical to the Arial option in every browser I’ve tried lately.

      So that wasn’t just me who thought they looked the same.

    Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to get some kind of “no 2nd character” option for the site. One can easily find fics with two listed characters, but to find those with only one listed you have to resort to looking through all fics that have that one character.

      How about “none” as the default option.

    While, I am glad you fixed the incompatibility issues with firefox there is a more pressing matter at hand that you need to address. It appears that there are people on fanfiction.net who believe the rules don;t apply to them and deliberately break them by posting pornography on your fine website. There is this one girl(I assume it’s a girl do to her pen name) who has posted over 40 stories on your website. ALL of them contain graphic pornography in them! Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

    http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1292617/Brinda-Takashuno

    That is a link to the person in question’s fanfiction profile. Just click on any story and you’ll find them filled with pornography(read at your own risk! Those stories are real explicit and tasteless in my opinion!) I remember a time when the moderators used to respond to the reports people send in and take care of the people and stories quite promptly. But sadly, now a days you don’t seem to care that people are posting stories of graphic nature and questionable content anymore! I’ve sent you many reports on the author who’s profile I’ve posted a link to. Yet you merely look the other way and let her and others just like her to get by with violating the rules! You disappoint me! You need to teach such violators a lesson and punish them for breaking the rules. If you people cared just one bit about this website you’d get your act together and get rid of all these disgusting pornographic stories infesting this website.

      @Moira – At least these stories all seem to be rated M and have summaries which imply their content. The ones I clicked on seemed to also have some sort of a plot and not be merely gratuitous erotic. It can be difficult to tell the exact difference between M and MA (M stories are allowed on the site). Perhaps the moderators have already made their decision, or indeed perhaps they are swamped and have not reached your reports.

      Because of the M rating, you should take comfort that no underage person is going to see these stories without knowing something of what they are getting into – M stories are hidden on the site as a default. There’s no need to throw a tantrum because content that identifies itself as a certain kind of content is not what you want to read.

    Why did I stop seeing the “Last Updated” information as part of the summary for my RSS feeds? Anyone? Anyone at all??? Very annoying.
