Polishing Part 1

30 Jul

We got some great feedback on the new browsing UI change and will continue to make improvements over the next few days to address the short-comings caused by the new usage pattern.

Changes:

  • Fixed incorrect length filtering.
  • Fixed issue with Mobile/Tablet/Netbook users using the desktop site and not being able to scroll down to reveal the complete selection interface.
  • New visual cues to quickly identify enabled filters.
  • Misc fixes and improvements.

Pending:

  • Hybrid filter UI approach where a few of most common filters do not require the activation of the advanced selection screen.
  • Live matching result count of activated filters.
  • Atom feeds will return pending the stabilization of the new filtering system.

    I’m bemoaning the lack of adblocker, too–and I was around when paid accounts got a full 30 days with no ads! However, I wonder if the adblock program is interfering with the back end work they’re doing on the new filter system. Hopefully this is the case and removing it is only temporary. As many have already said, adblocker on the site may decrease your revenues, Xing, but it enhances the safety of your users, readers and writers alike.

    (I have also noticed more targeted ads specific to companies I know are local to me. Possibly another trend in the site’s advertising? Have the rest of you noticed this?)

      That’s Google AdSense: in short, it looks at what you do on the web (youtube, search engine, and misc. webpages such as ffnet and… maybethefanficsthatyouread), deducing gender, age, language and what could interest you from that. Of course, it gives priority to where you live (IP usually lets one know country, state and city)

      Check yourself out, it’s kinda like a cold reading.

      Oh yeah, I’ve noticed a steep uptick in this. However, since I go on from work while I’m waiting for my afternoon train, all of the ads are specific to the server’s location a good distance away.

      There’s also been quite a few that I wouldn’t be comfortable with my coworkers seeing over my shoulder, much less the kids at home.

Which explains why for the past fucking whatever it’s been since fucking wings here have ”updated” more like downgraded the filter fuck pop i was not able to use it.

Over half of the viruses on computers are caused by these Ads. Please bring back the Ad Blocker ….. besides …. it is distracting when I see things in the Ads moving on the side when I am trying to read!!!! Bring back Ad Blocker!!!! PLEASE!!!

    I noticed that the function to remove advertisements has been removed as of this morning. I would like to be on record as opposing this change. I dislike the nuisance of the advertisements, and have regularly used the function to make my reading experience more enjoyable. This is not a good chance and one that I think most will dislike.

    Please, Please, PLEASE!

    Either return the Ad Blocker or if it was causing issues in the back end of the site polishing, please expedite said work so that the Ad Blocker can be returned. I tire of getting adds such as THIS:

    when I am browsing around to find something to read. Even though I’m an adult and enjoy the mature stories as much as the other ratings, it irks me to get what basically amounts to PORN MMO ads showing up on my screen. I also dislike the fact that I have had my browser hi-jacked a few times by the unwanted ads, which forced me to go into task manager and manually shut down Firefox to get rid of the unwanted garbage.

    So I say again, Please, Please, PLEASE!

    Either return the Ad Blocker or if it was causing issues in the back end of the site polishing, please expedite said work so that the Ad Blocker can be returned.

    Thank you.

    Seriously… Can we pretty please get rid of this ‘Disabling alerts if provider flags fanfiction as spam’ thing? It is hyper mega extremely ANNOYING!
    I get my freaking alerts just fine, added fanfiction to my freaking safe list, maybe my email provider flagged it but I AM GETTING THE ALERTS! I am only not getting the emails from fanfiction when this thing disables it because it doesnt want to cooperate with email providers other than those freaking gmail and yahoo. I dont have gmail and dont plan on getting it. I have a hungarian email provider. Please dont advertise and promote gmail, yahoo and all that freaking sites. Remove this useless feature, it is only annoying.
    Thanks…. -sigh-

    Please bring the old filters back. There are several reasons for this:

    1) Visually impaired readers (as mentioned in the first comment) are not able to use the annoying system effectively.

    2) The new filters are heavy and make the webpage slower to load, not favouring readers from low-bandwidth areas. We are just reading fanfiction, no reason to extend the waiting time beyond what’s reasonable.

    3) It’s more inefficient the new system. If I want to change a category, I have to click on the “Filters” button, wait for it to load, change the tag, click on GO! and wait for the page to load again. With the old system it was two steps less. And I would think that with a website run by a US-based administration, you would take the needs of US user into account (not that I’m from, nor I live there) because the bandwidth there can honestly be embarrassingly low or expensive to get a good one.

    (Are you triying to copy AO3? Becuase, honestly, that is my most hated feature in that website).

    4) It requires Java script. When the browser is being uncooperative or running in a too slow internet connection neither Java nor Shockwave load (Shockwave, mostly) so how people are supposed to use the filter!

    5) Honestly, it’s just comforting and it gives a sense of continuity to the very beginnings of the page.

    I hope you give it due consideration.

    On another topic, I was slightly curious that you could maybe get Fanfiction.net to accept small caps like Dreamwidth and AO3 do? In a lot of contexts, such as subtitling old-style chapter titles, with certain otherworldly characters and such it might be a desirable to use them INSTEAD OF MAKING DUE WITH ALL CAPS WHICH ARE NOT ALL THAT AESTHETICALLY APPEALLING, HONESTLY.

    Maybe you could give it a thought?

      Astoria25, I have to correct you. There is a difference between Java and JavaScript. Java is a programming language. JavaScript is a scripting language.

      However, I don’t think this website will change their ways. Besides, this website is still using obsolete HTML code even though fanfiction.net is now in HTML 5.

      08/16/2013 at 4:10 am

      I agree about the filters. I want to read stories about 1 or 2 of the characters. Unfortunately with the new filtering system, I can only deselect 2 main characters. I wish there was an option to deselect the remaining characters. The complete and in-progress pages now show many more stories than I want to see.

      Also I just noticed the story counter doesn’t show the actual amount of stories, only a general amount (ex. 1547 stories is now 1.5K).

    I bet they announce that ad blocker is gone for good in the next few days (or in their case weeks, seeing how long they took to last update the site then post the details to the blog). If this is the case, I will be closing down my account, but I will leave my stories here , assuming that’s even possible. In case they do announce ad blocker isn’t coming back and I do close my account and my stories disappear with that closure, I have begun the process of migrating my stories over to Archive Of Our Own. At least THEY don’t have ads. That plus their story pages (the page with the story in it itself, not just the archive listing) look better somewhat that fanfictions. Though I love fanfiction.net, I cannot and will not abide by a site that refuses to allow it’s users to disable the ads, even if only for 24 hours. In any event, I’ll wait a certain amount of time before making my decision, but I’m not going to wait forever (meaning more than a week or so) for fanfiction to get around to telling us what is becoming of the ad blocker.

    I’m not sure what all these complaints about ad blocker are about: I use AdBlock (on Chrome) and have never seen any ads on FFnet, or any other website for that matter. There are plenty of ways around adverts without relying on a website like FFnet to give you an option for/against ads.

      08/13/2013 at 3:19 pm

      Sir/Madame, you just made my day! I used to use AdBlock Plus and I thought at first that’s what you were referring to until I threw off my self righteousness went and looked it up. I’m glad I did, because after realizing it WASNT AdBlock Plus (not even CLOSE) I installed it, and then I realized every singe ad on facebook, as well as on FFnet is GONE! AdBlock Plus couldn’t get rid of the facebook ads, but this extension did just that, AND it didn’t interfere with any of my browser based games to boot! If I had money I would have donated to the person who made the extension, but unfortunately my current unemployment prevents me from doing that. I did make note to donate a good amount in the future when I find a paying job, though. I’m not heartless, LOL! Again, thank you for the suggestion, it worked out PERFECTLY for me! Looks like I’m staying with FFnet after all!

        08/13/2013 at 11:28 pm

        Lynn,

        No, it’s not. Just look up AdBlock in the chrome extensions store. It’ll be called AdBlock 2.6.4. The description says its the most popular chrome extension with over 15 million users. It’s pretty easy to find. After it’s installed you’ll get redirected to a page that asks you to pay (well it says pay but it’t really actually asking for a donation without actually using the word donate) any amount of money you feel you want to give them. You can simply close out that redirected page and choose not to pay/donate anything (I’d have donated something myself but I’m on unemployment and have no money to donate as it is).

         
      • M.Uchman

        08/13/2013 at 11:39 pm

        Lynn,

        I just found the extension’s website. You can simply get it from there. They say on their site that monetary contribution is requested and optional, so you don’t have to pay if you don’t want to. go to getadblock.com. Trust me, this extension works. According to all the information I’ve been able to gleam from around the net, there are versions of this extension for safari and opera as well, and I believe there are also either released or in development versions of it for the rest of the major Browsers such as Firefox and IE. But yeah, the extension is perfect in chrome, I love it!

        You’re welcome. If you find any ads that aren’t blocked you can just click on the AdBlock icon and choose “block an ad on this page” and then click the ad you want to block and follow the instructions. You can also add your own filters via ‘options’ to prevent those ads that sometimes show up in text (they show up as links on websites and when your cursor moves over them you get ads), which has happened a few times to me in the past but since adding Textsrv.com, Text-Enhance.com and Infolinks.com to the filters this hasn’t occurred again.

    I’m one of those people who have an old computer system. One that is just a couple points shy of a version that can download things like Chrome or the latest flash player. I have no alternatives to block these ads, and have long appreciated that ffnet would allow me to block them, even if I had to renew it daily. Now that they took it down, they’ve taken away one of the few redeeming qualities about this site. If ad blocker won’t return, I won’t either.

    08/13/2013 at 1:14 pm

    I have to say I’m pretty upset about the disappearance of AdBlocker. In addition to the visual spam that we’re subjected to with ads, there’s also a substantial risk of viruses and unwanted material transfer between whatever’s in those ads and our computers. Many people I know are not happy with this change, and are considering doing a mass boycott of Fictionpress and removing their stories to post on WordPress or other places. I will probably join them if AdBlocker doesn’t come back within a month.

    So for all our sakes, because I would prefer not to have to ditch this site, please reinstate the Ad block option.

    Thanks.

    I was wondering if perhaps you could add a Yaoi/Yuri/homosexual love filter? For exclusion and searching. So people who want to read it can find it easily, and people who don’t can filter it out.

    least they could do is post something somewhere about what is happening with the ad blocker. Maybe on the home page of ff.net? Very poor service here when something like this happens and nobody that runs the stuff posts anything for the users. I am using AdBlocker for FireFox now thanks to a tip from someone here so not too worried about the adblocker feature but it would be nice to have it available if I am ever at another computer and they don’t have AdBlocker.

    I have an issue with your new filtering set-up; IT DOESN’T WORK!!! Every time I try to get a certain book to load the filters, I get NOTHING! You had a great system, all you really needed to do was add spots for 1 or 2 extra characters, and perhaps a place to keep 1 out of a fic , but NO! You had to make this site even MORE reader/reviewer unfriendly than it already was! I’ve ha trouble leaving reviews, had to do so as PM’s for some of my favorite writers, and I have no idea how this is going to mess up posting my story! If it ain’t broke, quit trying to fix it! You were selfish and careless enough last year when you caused so many GREAT writers to pull their works from your sites, with NO warning, when ALL you had to do was add a NC-17 or MA rating to your listing- I lost over 250 favorites from that action, and I have NO WAY to know where these writer went! I loved this site, because it is (used to be) easy for a person with a disability to use, but now, it’s getting very difficult to do so. Thank you, and I hope that someone in the admin reads what we say – if not, why have this blogsite in the first place??? Lady Skyelite.

      Yoiu’re being unnecessarily harsh, rude, and abusive toward Xing. Yes, it would have been nice to have a warning given before the story purge last summer, but you’re forgetting that MA and NC-17 fics are not allowed on the site, PERIOD. The admins made that decision years ago and they’re not going to change their minds just because you want them to. Quite frankly, I don’t feel any sympathy at all for you or the writers who wrote those “favorite” fics of yours that disappeared. They were breaking the rules, plain and simple, and claiming ignorance of the rules, which I’m betting is what these writers probably did, is no excuse. So shut up!

    I’m missing the adblock feature as well. I’d welcome the return of support services if the site isn’t getting enough revenue from ads.

    For those worried about unsafe ads, Adblock Plus for Firefox stops them for me. If you’re using Internet Explorer and don’t care to switch browsers, it’s easy to modify your computer’s hosts file so that the majority of known advertising sites are blocked. Googling “adblock hosts file” should provide sufficient instructions.

    The webpage now takes a very long time to load, especially when I am viewing it through my mobile. I am honestly crushed with the fact that I can no longer access stories or navigate around the site without the painstakingly long time for it to finish loading. Fanfiction.net has been something very dear to my heart and a place when I can really let loose myself to fantasy. I just want everything to be back the way it is, if not then at least do something about the slow loading time of the webpage. Why improve something that doesn’t even need improvements in the first place…sigh… I am honestly distraught over the whole matter, being a fanfiction addict.

    The ad next to the review window is extremely annoying. They’re all annoying, but that one is especially bad.

    If it’s just an oversight, pay attention to the members: Ads suck. Bring back Ad Blocker.

    Of course I can’t post the URL here, so try this search term on Google etc: “learn with nirab block ads ie”. The article “How to block ads in IE9″ should be the first thing that comes up.

    I suggest two new categories in FictionPress: Satire and Experimental. The need for Category Satire seems obvious. Experimental, as a category, is more fluid, but I think it would prove useful for the more adventurous readers/authors. For those of us who are more classically minded, we could easily avoid stories by budding Gertrude Steins or James Joyces which can be a little startling before tea.

      I was talking about a genre filter. You said category, I said genre. Also, both of those categories could be genres as well. I say that those, if Xing decides he wants them as categories, should also be made into genres for at least FF.

        08/15/2013 at 12:52 pm

        However, wouldn’t satire fall under the humor category or the parody genre? Expiremental would be a good category but satire seems a little weak.

    I was just wondering, can we have a filter that asks if we want either AU fics, Self-insert fics, or other stuff? I really wanna find some GOD DAMN SELF-INSERT FICS, BUT I HAVE TO FREAKING GO THROUGH THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF POUNDS OF CRAP JUST TO FIND ONE!

     
    • A.J. Goode

      08/16/2013 at 1:07 pm

      Daniel, that’s because self-inserts could technically be considered Real Person Fiction, which isn’t allowed.

       
    • seila

      08/16/2013 at 11:23 pm

      Self-inserts are not the only kind of insert

      But anyways. . . Daniel, many inserts are declared in their summaries. I recommend searching the word “insert” or even “self-insert”, then narrowing the parameter to your category of choice.

      And an AU, canon, insert filter would be vastly more useful than the world filter we have now. Mostly because the current world filter is borderline useless. I’ve only genuinely used it once, couldn’t find what I wanted, but found it with a manual word search instead. (Genuinely, meaning to actually find something and not “Oh, what’s this button do?” Heh.)

    Can we get rid of the summary links on the community pages now too? Most of the summary links are gone on the regular archives, but it’s still extremely annoying to have them anywhere. I spend most of my time going through the community archives, and I would like those summary links to be completely gone.

      I have to agree about the story links. Today, I accidentally clicked one of them which drove me nuts when it happened.

    I tried using Adblock. It’s not working. Please, for the love of fish, bring the FF adblocker back.

    I think that new change on ff is very confusing, I prefer the old one. Please, change it back And also I had a several problem on searching a pair because somehow the engine can’t show the result that I want to its so confusing
    thank you

    I’m sorry, but I don’t like it at all, I always use the mobile modus, but now it’s kinda getting weird and I’m totally not used to it, come on, please set it back the way it was, why the changes all of sudden?

    I was just wondering why the number of stories that match the filter parameters had to be changed. Before you could clearly see how many stories there are but now it’s a rounded up version i.e. 103, 924 now all you can see 103.9K. It would be really great if the full number can be displayed again. Some avid readers like to see how many new stories are added each day to the fics they read and it would be nicer and easier to do it with a full number. I would really be grateful if you guys could restore that. Thank you so much for your time!

    The new filter is shitty and an eyesore. Bring back the old one. Though I doubt any of these unsatisfied comments will be viewed, much less taken into account.

    I’m actually pissed off.I looked on the site,the ads on the mobile version threw me off,but they don’t show up on my phone,so thats not MY problem,but it’s a problem.
    Now,I don’t know what possesed you guys to make all these new filters,cause to be honest,at first I was confused as hell.It’s not fancy,it’s a fucking hassel.I tried to hit apply filter (the hell happened 2 the “go” button?) but it will not complete the action.I’ve reloaded the page,and tried and tried again,but no such luck!I need the simple version back.I could do that quick & easy,now I’m staring at the damn filters wondering what the hell you’re trying to do.
    If somebody wants to get all fucking specific,do the damn advanced search.
    I don’t have a laptop right now,& I can’t access the site.I’m looking for a better one while you guys choose when you wanna get your site together.
    I’m pissed off.Farewell,FF.net.

      @Trisha Me – what makes you think anyone cares whether you visit the site or not? It’s already got plenty of foul-mouthed, incoherent wasters, thank you.

      I would sympathize a lot more if some of you complainers stated your concerns reasonably, and not like toddlers throwing a tantrum.

      The developers can’t look at the problem unless you give them specifics – like exactly what kind of device you’re on (not just phone – what kind of phone). Otherwise how the fuck (see? not so pretty from someone else, is it?) are they supposed to test it and work it out?

      FFS, grow up, and state your concerns in terms that can be addressed.

    The new mobile features are horrible. The fact that you can add more characters is fine, but when I want just two specific characters it still shows me an additional two others, even though I left it blank. It’s annoying because I’m not looking for stories with the additional two as the main focus.

    The new filters are annoying and confusing.

    I’m really upset. I can’t use the filter, it doesn’t work. There’s no ‘go’ button, just an ‘apply filter’. It does nothing for me! The old one was better. Please go back to the old one (or just add a ‘go’ button so it actually WORKS). It upsets me to know I’ll probably never get to actually read what I want now, I’m just stuck with K-T filtering (and I can’t even read the characters I want!) WHY? Please consider this, I really loved this site but now I’m having second thoughts.
    Thanks.
