    Ask a Moderator - Part 20

    Please view our Forum's Frequently Asked Questions and Archive's Frequently Asked Questions before posting your questions here, and also make sure your question has not already been asked. (These threads are searchable!)

    [The more people ask the same question, the more pages there are, which cause more people to not take the time to read it, causing them to post the same question and the vicious cycle continues]

    When asking a question that specifically applies to you, your account, or a particular story, you MUST provide the pertinent information, such as your uid.

    Please, allow MODERATORS ONLY to answer the questions in this thread.

    If you have a question which doesn't need to be answered by moderators, please ask Dumbledore's Navy in the Check-In Desk.

    Per my routine it seems, I am double posting (which is STILL bad) with the unanswered question from the last Ask a Mod thread:

    Thanks!

    And I'm sorry to say that I don't have the answer but I am hoping another mod does, hehe.

    Is there some sort of 'Report Abuse' function on the archives?

    I just read a review for a fic I was thinking of reading, and this person left a review that was seriously wrong. It wasn't about the fic so much as an attack on the author and the genre itself. It was very nasty, and I felt offended on behalf of the author. The author did respond, but that was none too kindly, either.

    This may be none of my business, but I know that tolerance amongst members is our goal here, and I thought you should know. If you want the details of the fic/review in question, I can PM it to you.

    Thank you, fabulous Mods.

    Hello Mods,

    I haven't been able to edit my avatar for a long time. Is this something to do with that server change? Is anyone else having problems?

    Please help.

    Natalie, I've been having the same problems. I have a feeling it probably is related to the server switch, as it was about that time when I first heard of people unable to switch their avvies. I'm not overly worried about it, but I'm curious as to why.

    And my main reason for stopping in:

    Recently, I've been diving in to 6th-7th and Professors rated fics, and many of them are multi-chaptered. Because of this, I get warnings between some chapters, saying that this fic has content unappropriate for younger readers, and stuff to that extent. I wouldn't mind this if it happened every three or four chapters, or once per story, but there have been times where I'd get the same warning while trying to get to a new chapter up to five times.

    My question is, is it possible to turn off these warnings? I'm aware of what I'm reading, and not bothered by any content that I won't see coming. They are useful, but I'd prefer living without them, if I can.

    Natalie - Like you and Selina, many of us are having the same issue with changing our avvies. It all seems to tie in with the server switch!

    I know it's not the best answer but if it ever lets me change mine, I will edit this post so you know.

    Selina - My memory may be a bit rusty but I believe this was touched upon in one of the other Ask a Mod threads. They are searchable for your convenience but if memory serves, changing the fact that multi-chaptered fic pop up several warnings wasn't an option. You just need to grit your teeth and click the "continue?" option each time. Sorry!

    Gauntlet Question

    Hi,

    I was just wondering what is going on with the Gauntlet? It's been a couple of months and there hasn't been any activity on the Gauntlet thread. Am I missing something (sorry if I am)?

    Ohara,
    Judging is taking place with the Gauntlet. However, it is done in a secret section of the board only accessible to the Guides which is why you don't see anything in the Gauntlet thread.

    We are getting closer to announcing the winner. It won't be much longer.

    Question

    I'm sorry to post another question here so quickly, but something just came up.

    Yesterday, I received an e-mail from a Polish HP fan who wants to translate my story "How Voldemort Got His Groove Back" into Polish and possibly post it on a Polish fan fiction site (but only with my consent). I told him I would ask what Mugglenet policy is on this.

    Would it be possible for him to do this? Does Mugglenet have exclusive "rights" to the story? Would it be OK for him to translate it for his own use?

    Sorry if the answer is already on the site somewhere; I checked the archives and the "Help" section and couldn't find anything.

    Thanks!
