    Glad to know that it wasn’t my crappy understanding of how the internet works keeping me off! Like others, I’ve been busy writing while I wait! Chapter nearly finished 🙂 Thanks for the update!

    So far everything seems to be working again.
    Even managed to update my story.
    although there still is popping those same error messages few times.

      Same here. I can do most, but forums are most likely still being worked on.

    I’m on a Kindle Touch Wifi edition, and only my account is working that I just checked. The web browser I am using is ‘experimental’ cuz its a Kindle Touch and not a Kindle Fire or Paperwhite.

    The Fast and the Furious fandom and login in area are accessible. Bleach and Harry Potter are not.

    So, for a brief moment, people can’t either plagiarize or infringe on copyrights. That’s nice to know. (Sarcasm font needed.)

    Still having the occasional 503 message chucked at me but for the most part the site seems to be working for me again. Thank you 🙂

      09/20/2013 at 6:36 pm

      Still having problems and 503 messages with the forums. Losing patience here.

      • LC

        09/20/2013 at 6:40 pm

        heh. well don’t go and lose it yet. you might not find it. /shot
        anyway..i’m sure they’re working on it all still…
        so far as i know, they’re also humans just like us and not robots.. 😉

      • flutesareawesome

        09/20/2013 at 6:43 pm

        I know they might still be working on it, but I’m about as impatient as you can be. And the forum that I want to go on, I’m on it everyday, so it’s kind of what I’m used to.

    Both sites are still working like a dream for me at the moment. If anyone is still having problems, might I suggest to follow the solutions given by Xing in the previous blog post? Clear caches, restart browser, and reboot computers. You know all that sweet jazz. Nice work Xing, the site is performing well again.

  23. LC

    09/20/2013 at 6:39 pm

    also the views and visitors count is still all wrong. (aka. the same)
    of course that’s really minor thing next to everything else right now…

    Hurry up! I am dying here from fanfiction withdrawals.

    Woo-Hoo!!!! The forum is working again!!!

    Fanfiction worked about 10 minutes ago for me. Thank you for helping us and trying to fix the problem.

    another little bugger that i came across right now…
    it shows i’ve got new review and i’ve got email showing it too, but when i go look for it, it doesn’t show it and when i try to reply through the link on the email it’s saying: “Invalid Message 3
    We cannot find the review you are replying to.”

    which reminds me another thing that has been going on for weeks if not months. the guest reviews i get, show up few days late. although they show up in my email in time.

    • Neta

      09/20/2013 at 7:40 pm

      Regarding your guest reviews showing up a couple days late, check to see if you have guest moderation enabled. This feature allows you to preview a guest review for 36 hours before it is posted. If you want to see guest reviews immediately, just disable this feature. Hope this helps!

      • LC

        09/20/2013 at 7:44 pm

        Funny… I don’t remember ever even touching that little bugger…
        Well whether i was doing something in my sleep or whatever else the reason,
        now i feel just stupid. haha.
        if that fixes that, then thank you. 😉 virtual kisses!

    • AiP

      09/20/2013 at 7:42 pm

      I have the same issue. I see a new review alert but cannot read it all or reply and its not showing up. I hope they fix it soon!!

      • LC

        09/20/2013 at 7:46 pm

        well it’s at least good to know it’s just not for me(or you), right?

      • AiP

        09/20/2013 at 7:56 pm

        exactly you are not alone. I know not being able to thank people or at least acknowledge is frustrating to say the least. hopefully they fix it soon!

    what exactly is wrong with ffn. cant wait for the site to be fixed, I found a new story that I want to finish.

    also I heard that ffn is up for sale. that’s not true is it? the owners we have now are great. 🙂

    Are we going to get our full stats for yesterday? I posted a chapter, which lately gets well over a thousand hits per first day, and it shows me as having 240.

    09/20/2013 at 7:14 pm

    Don’t worry, FFN team. Keep up the great work! Ignore the obsessed, ignorant morons that do nothing but complain.

  35. Don't Judge Me Badly

    09/20/2013 at 7:19 pm

    WOOP! All is working for me, besides forums I think. Either way, yay! Hopefully it won’t die again 😀 Thank-you 😀

    Thanks for quickly fixing the problem and keeping fanfiction an reliable place to write and read to your hearts content

  37. ladygrelka

    09/20/2013 at 7:30 pm

    So would the problems of late be why none of my reviews went through yesterday even though it said they had?

    Picture avatars are not appearing.

    I was getting worried that I wouldn’t be able to read my fanfiction’s stories anymore on my phone, but I’m glad that the problem has now been fixed and I am able to read my stories once more.

    Thank you for fixing the problem!

    Can’t read the new reviews that I get for my latest chapters. My profile says they’re there but when I try to read them, I get nothing.

  44. Jacob Pendra-Huth

    09/20/2013 at 9:27 pm

    Hey, I counted the reviews, and there are new ones that aren’t showing up for my story. Is this a glitch?

  45. mknut

    My fanfic pics are not working

    I just left a review for the story ‘The Apple Really Doesn’t Fall Far’ by Imyoshi. It never showed and after he tried to respond to the email alert it sent he told me the review no longer existed.

    Possible bug


    PS: Thank you for the hard work, you guys ROCK.

      Was it for chapter 3? If so the review is on there now.

  47. Sakume

    09/20/2013 at 10:01 pm

    I’m having difficulties reading the reviews for my work even though it says it’s there. I can’t seem to access it. That’s one bug still present! 🙂

  48. Airwatcher

    09/20/2013 at 10:10 pm

    Thank you FFN team, you did a great job. Keep up the great work. I know you are trying your best to fix everything as fast as you can. You guys are awesome.

    Somebody reviewed my story “Skylanders: Darkest Hour: Rise of the Dragon King” but it has never showed up and I cannot read it fully in the email because it was “truncated due to length”.

    Things are much better now. Thanks guys!
