    My iPad can no longer able to use the full website and keeps going to the mobile site. Which sucks since this is what I primarily use.

    When I try going under “My Account” it keeps saying that something is wrong with the license or something of that nature and wont let me continue to the page unless I click to access past the warning page. Is there a way that this can be fixed?

    Charts aren’t working in Firefox for me. I cleared the cache and restarted the browser, no joy. They failed on both the story and profile traffic stats pages.

    My PS3 won’t allow me to access the homepage or any links it leads to like the categories. All I have is my profile page since that’s the only page that doesn’t switch to a mobile version, and there’s no link to the regular site because.

      I’m the same. I read fanfiction on this site all the time from my PSP, (PlayStation Portable) and I can no longer do so. It keeps asking me to save and will not load the site. I’m extremely disappointed. 😦

    I have the website in the main website scroll on Yahoo. When I click on it, it tells me to log in. But I just skip around that part to go back to the main FF page.

    can we host a reward show for best fanficitions

    • bienfait

      09/03/2013 at 4:23 pm

      A lot of individual fandoms already do this. Given the vast quantity of fanfiction out there, and the huge disparity in levels of popularity between fandoms, I don’t think a broadform approach is feasible; but if you’re interested in doing it in your own areas of interest, why not post in your forums and see if anyone else is on board?

        I have a PM in my inbox but when I click to load the page, it keeps coming up and saying that the webpage can not be displayed; everything else is working for me though.

      • Lucy

        Now I can see most of my PM’s but not the ones that have a lot of messages in the PM thread.

    does this mean the xbox 360’s internet explorer might also experience issues? if the ps3 is I mean?

    09/03/2013 at 3:53 pm

    It still shows a page full of gibberish. I tried changing the address now and earlier, but it still didn’t allow me to get to the regular site. Perhaps of there was a regular site link in the profile pages, PS3 users could reach the regular site homepage that way.

      Can’t access site on my PS3 anymore, even though I was able to use it yesterday. It has the lastest software update 4.46.
      Just like a few other sites, all it shows is a bunch of gibberish code signifying the PS3 can no longer reconize the coding properly.

    i use the mobile site on my samsung galaxy i9003 and it always shows me that the mobile site can’t be accessed cause i’m following an outdatet link… so i can’t read any storier or access my stories… which is bad, cause i mostly check in via my cell and honestly don’t want to use the regular site when you have a special mobile site (sorry :))

    09/03/2013 at 4:30 pm

    Same problem as Kyouya-chan. The site doesn’t work on my psp, it asks if I want to download this site and no matter what I choose the site just doesn’t load. This problem appears on full and mobile website version.

  25. fems

    09/03/2013 at 4:32 pm

    It would be nice if you guys would post a warning about any updates (and possible issues they may cause) before you perform them instead of after the fact. If you don’t want to use the blog for it at least post it on your twitter account. That way there will be less confusion (as I too received PMs from people who mentioned they were unable to review) and less complains from people experiencing these problems.

  29. Daniel Bridges - Arashi Uzukaze

    09/03/2013 at 5:07 pm

    According to my reserch, the PSP and PS3 and maybe even the PS Vita or other Playstation type stuff with a web browser, uses the Sony-branded NetFront 2.81 mobile browser. A Browser that’s apparently sooo out of date that it’s rediculous. The reason that sites like and don’t work anymore is due to the code change (I assume) and the PS3, PSP type of browser isn’t compatable or something. 😦

    • Daniel Bridges - Arashi Uzukaze

      09/03/2013 at 5:12 pm

      A Quote that I saw from my reserch:
      “The PlayStation 3 uses a version of the NetFront browser by Access Co. as its internal web browser. It is the same browser used in the PSP (Sony-branded NetFront 2.81) with the same interface, menus and virtual keyboard. Its user agent string is cloaked, falsely reporting as Mozilla/5.0 (PLAYSTATION 3; 1.00).”

    I’m trying to go to some forums using my phone, however whenever I do it takes me to a mobile version of FictionPress (I’m trying to load the forums on the Regular Site).

    Even then the FictionPress page never fully loads no matter how many times I refresh it.

    I am unable to access my mobile profile (the one that is what shows up when you view someone else’s mobile profile). When I try to access it, this message always pops up: “Oops! We are unable to find this page on Most likely you are accessing the site with an outdated link.” Before I went to bed last night at 11:30 pm central standard time, it worked just fine. I use the most up-to-date version of google chrome on my nook hd+. I have also tried using firefox on my nook as well as maxthon web browser for nook and the same thing happens. I am also unable to view some of my favorited authors’ mobile profiles as well.

        The “All’ filter that kicks things into alpha order (fleetingly) on the main category pages hasn’t worked in several days, on both the Mac & P/C .

        After fixing it, can you devise a way to select and lock it into alpha, rather than that wretched popularity, especially now that that’s so vague?

        (Was an explanation ever given for the rounded off counts? Did I miss it?)
