    Um, I don't think this was in the FAQ, so I was wondering...

    With the Ballad challenge in "Poetry Anyone" section, do you have to be a member of the group to enter or not?

    Thanks!

    Sorry to be such a noob, but, well, I am one.

    I'm wondering what exactly the Beta Readers do. Do they just give input on the story and what they think of it, do they fix grammatical/spelling mistakes, or what? I would very much like to become a beta reader, and I'm not quite sure where to being.

    I'm sure I'll discover the answers in a FAQ five minutes after I post this....

    Anyway, any help would be very appreciated.

    Heyy- how do I get a banner on my author page? normal [img] tabs aren't working... are banners not allowed there? I can swear I've seen one before.

    Thanks!

    Ooh, yet another question by me.

    Kay so, how come that when I try to submit a story, and try to attach a file instead of sticking the text into the box, it won't load right and says the word count is 1? It's been like this forever! Is this because it's a .wps file? If it is, then darn you, stupid Word Works Processor! (It causes much trouble, believe me)

    The ever-curious,
    Mari

    You don't have to be a member of the group. The challenge is in that forum just for convienience's sake.

    Dark Sun - this is really not the place for that kind of question. Information on beta readers and their role is avalaible all over the place, not least in the beta forums. I always use Google as a first resort if I don't know something.

    You need to use HTML, so the image tag is <img src="insert image URL here">

    That function doesn't work and never has. *rolls eyes at the software* You need to copy and paste into the text box.

    err...

    okay, so first, i think i'm doing this wrong. i pressed the reply but i have a feeling i'm not meant to reply. was i meant to add a new thread and if so, how? Sorry, but i'm a newbie and have no idea what i'm meant to be doing.
    My other question is how it is that some authors seem to know how many people have read their stories when not everyone reviews? Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm not sure how to check if it has. Thanks.

    If you want to ask a question then hitting reply was the right button to press. If you're looking for help on the basics of using the forums then you should visit the Forum Usage Help Page Here.

    The reason that some people can tell how many reads they have is because prior to the archive upgrade there was a feature on the Manage Stories page that told you how many people had read each chapter. However, other modlies correct me if I'm wrong, I think that feature was lost when we upgraded.

    I feel reall stupid asking this but I looked up in the FAQ's and nothing came up...so here I am.

    Where can I find the Challenges for my house and the boards? I'm a newbie and I'm sorry if someone has answered this-but I couldn't find it.

    Can anyone help me?

    MJ_Padfoot, the challenges can be found in The Great Hall. Any in-house challenges will be found in your common room.

    I'm sure that this has been asked before, but I couldn't find the answer in any FAQs so, here I am! I was wondering if MNFF accepted stories in the format of a movie/TV show script. Thanks for answering my question!
