I've noticed that post counts have jumped randomly, as much as 120+ posts. Although this hasn't happened to me, I've seen it happening to others. Is there a way to fix this or is it just a temporary glitch?
I've searched the faqs for an answer to this question, but I havn't been very successful at finding an answer.
Are you allowed to have more than one person beta your story? What I mean is, if one person specializes in grammar and the other in dialogue, is it okay to have both of them go over your story? Thank you so much for you help.
I am not 100% sure, but maybe it's a glitch. I have seen the numbers fluctuate, but I don't think there's anything you can really do make the number go down if it has been inflated. At any rate, please don't worry, as we all know that the little post count number really isn't that important. It's just that - a number.

Thank you so much for your help Little_Kitty.
I have a question, whats Team Groovey Gryfindor Tubducks, Team Sensational, Spirited, Top-Toaster Super Squad and Team Twinkling, Talkative, Talented Toasters? Its in my CP but I never heard anything about it on the forums besides the ocasional banner...
Not sure what to do...
I submitted my latest chapter (ch 13) with a request that Robin mod it. She was offline for a long time, though, and it sat for a couple weeks. Then it disappeared from the queue. I resubmitted without the request that she mod it, as I was told nobody knew when she'd be back online, and she never responded to my email or PM. It's been sitting for over a week. All told, it's been more than three weeks with no mod approval of my chapter, and it's sitting there, not approved, not rejected, and no rejection email came the first time. I hate to assume there's nothing wrong with it - my beta approved it and all that... but I hate to assume. If there's something wrong I'd gladly fix it, but I just don't know because I haven't been notified.
It took over a month to get the last chapter approved, due to accidental deletions from the queue and glitches in the system, and I fear it will be that long again. Needless to say, I'm a little frustrated, as I have all these chapters written. I appreciate having a specific mod, I don't think mine is back online, but I have no real idea because I still haven't heard from her. Can someone take a look at this for me?

Due to the recent hacking on the MNFF main site, should we hold off on submitting, or should we continue on like normal? Thanks very much in advance!!!

You can continue normally unless the site shuts down for some recoding problems etc. Please read the front page of MNFF for more details.
