February 2013 Outlook

29 Jan

Please note we have revised our new feature release schedule from middle of January, which was overly optimistic on our part due to the various holidays, to end of February of which we are extremely confident in.

We are currently working double overtimes to meet our own internal pre-release deadlines and this time, we will not disappoint our users when it comes to the new February surprise. =)

    Why can’t I update my story? It says

    FanFiction.Net Message Type 1
    Chapter not found. Please check to see you are not using an outdated url.
    New chapter/story can take up to 15 minutes to show up.

    And I have already waited for 3 hours…

    Chapter updates are not loading as of 3 am EST this morning (Feb 9). new stories are working. All attempts to access get a Message Type 1 error.

    Ever reconsider the desision not to have story based ATOM/RSS feed links? originally it was supposed to be phased in some time after the author ones were added, but that desision was later reversed and the idea shelved. I’ve been wishing it would be added for a very long time now. I far prefer the feed update system to the email update options.

    Keep spamming, maybe they’ll realize that there’s a problem.

      02/09/2013 at 4:17 pm

      Don’t. Past experience has shown that only a few people bringing it up will get the problem fixed. The thing is, the more complex the problem is the longer it can take for the admins to get it fixed. So there is no point in spamming because it just seems like you guys are being impatient unless you have something new to add that can help.

      • Dani-Ellie03

        02/09/2013 at 6:16 pm

        Perhaps, but an indication that site admins are aware and are working on the issue would go a long way to cooling people’s heels, I think. At least we’d know a resolution is in the works.

      • yemi hikari

        02/10/2013 at 4:34 pm

        I knew the site admins were working on the problem without them having to tell me, so I say that people need to learn not to panic when its still within the first twenty-four to forty-eight hours that the site admins aren’t paying attention to the problem. The real reason people wanted them to respond to their worries is because they want instant gratification.

      • Dani-Ellie03

        02/12/2013 at 9:29 pm

        It wasn’t an issue of wanting instant gratification, for me. It was a case of readers PMing me all day long and asking what was going on, and me not having an answer for them aside from “it’s site-wide and there’s nothing I can do about it.” Having to tell someone to keep checking on your work to see if and when they can read it is an inconvenience to the reader. At least if we’d had a general timetable I could say, “they anticipate getting it resolved sometime within the next [timeframe], so check back then.”

        02/14/2013 at 4:28 am

        Lol! Got it now. Thankfully I only got one such PM, but then I waited a bit before posting my stuff because I knew there was a problem.

    I can’t read any chapters posted recently! The only way I can post new chapter is if I remove the story and re-post every chapter, but I can’t do that all of the time! Especially with stories with many faves, follows and reviews!

    02/09/2013 at 1:32 pm

    Is the surprise an inability to update fic or you update but you can’t read the new fics?
    ‘cuz I can only see this message:
    FanFiction.Net Message Type 1Chapter not found. Please check to see you are not using an outdated url.

    New chapter/story can take up to 15 minutes to show up.

    Getting this message when I try to access a chapter that was posted today (February 9, 2013) and it’s been more than an hour since the posting:

    FanFiction.Net Message Type 1
    Chapter not found. Please check to see you are not using an outdated url.
    New chapter/story can take up to 15 minutes to show up.

    I’m getting messages that no one can see the latest chapter update even though they received notification that it was posted. I’ve tried deleting and reposting with no luck. What’s going on? Please fix this.

    02/09/2013 at 2:34 pm

    Yeah, updated chapters as of today are not working (though strangely newly published ones are). Spamspamspamspamspam, ect… It would be really nice for this to be fixed soon/hear about what the hell is causing it…

    I haven’t been able to access any chapter updates today (Feb 9th) – hope it can be fixed soon…. I’m missing my fanfic/castle fix!

    The problem is in all of the servers. I’ve tried Chrome and Explorer and neither are working, even with the adblockers removed.

    02/09/2013 at 2:58 pm

    Another person who can’t access new chapters. PLEASE fix it soon…… I’m snowed in today with time to read!

    Posted a sardonic/ironic post, the post had been deleted.
    DO I want to know if I’m been insulted?
    I hope the problem will soon be resolved.

    The site’s not letting me read new chapter updates. It’s been like this since around 4am. I’d like to read the newest chapters. Please hurry up and fix this!

  24. Steppenwoelfin

    02/09/2013 at 3:40 pm

    Same problem over here, new chapters cannot be accessed. I’ve e-mailed a description of the issue to Support. The e-mail address can be found here:

    please fix them? :*(

    02/09/2013 at 4:10 pm

    Any indication on if site admins are working on the chapter uploading issue and a general ETA on we can expect it to be resolved? I (and many, many others, I’m sure) have readers replying to my story telling me they are unable to view the updated chapter. I would like to be able to tell them something aside from “I’m keeping my eye on it and will let you know when it’s fixed.”

  33. test

    02/09/2013 at 4:41 pm

    Check the chapters on fanficts they are not updating, getting error messages all over when you go to the latest chapter. FIx ASAP plz

  34. random89

    02/09/2013 at 5:15 pm

    Indeed, I wonder if whatever is being worked on has slowed down the loading of new chapters so much that they don’t upload at all… it’s been at least 10 hours since I saw a story I follow update, but the chapter isn’t available yet, only the “Message Type 1”. I looked around and I saw this seems to be true for whatever has been updated today.

    02/09/2013 at 6:45 pm

    okay, this isn’t the place but I don’t know where to complain. The new mobile update is cool and all but I can’t click the “More” button, meaning I can search (on both fan fiction and fiction press). It’s really hard to use these without search.

      It is the place to report glitches and stuff.

    Is the “new February surprise” an actual working site?

    Chapters are not updating …

    Today is Feb 9th and I received about 30 author alerts but when I click to open up the story it says the story has either not been updated or is not available. What is going on?

  44. AnOnYmOuS

    02/09/2013 at 7:03 pm

    I can’t view new chapters.

  45. Catherine

    02/09/2013 at 7:09 pm

    I can’t view new chapters, it keep saying message type 1 chapter not found, I hope the site get fixed soon.

  46. Tomasina

    02/09/2013 at 7:11 pm

    New stories are posting fine, it’s new or updated chapters that won’t display. A blog notice that the site is aware of the problem and is working on it would be appreciated.

  47. NarutoMasterSage4040

    02/09/2013 at 7:26 pm

    I am also getting the chapter not found message for stories that were updated today. It’s really beginning to make me angry.

  48. Kristine Albinda

    02/09/2013 at 7:26 pm

    Newly updated chapters are not showing? Can we get an ETA when this will be fixed or possibly an acknowledgement?

  49. Spyridon

    02/09/2013 at 7:29 pm

    I can’t see the new chapters at all. I guess we have a glitch across the site that prevents stories from being seen once they’ve been updated.

    02/09/2013 at 7:37 pm

    chapters not appearing for me either.
