    Ask a Moderator - Part 22

    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.

    As of last night/this morning, some areas of the boards have disappeared from the main index for me. Specifically, all of the beta areas and SPEW are gone. When I click links to get to those areas from the FAQ (for example), I get this message:
    clabbert2101, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    I've tried logging out, emptying my cache, clearing my cookies, and restarting my browser, but to no avail. Is this a part of the...issue...with Sorting acting up, or is it something else entirely?

    There's a spambot here.

    I've been posting a lot of these. Should I just do the "report bad post" thingo if I see one?

    Midnight Storm, I've taken care of that spambot. But yes, please just do the "report bad post" thing or PM the moderator in charge of the forum. There's no need to post it in Ask a Mod. Thank you.

    Bella, hang in tight. We'll get it sorted out.
    No longer a mod and no longer in charge of any forums.

    Hi Mods!

    The most recent chapter of my story Elisabeth was validated yesterday. Today, this chapter has over 300 reads, more than the first chapter of the story, which has been up since December. I was wondering if there was some kind of glitch with the read count? The chapters have been averaging about 100 or 150 reads each, so I was a bit confused by the sudden influx of readers. I suppose it's possible that the story has inexplicably exploded in popularity, but I think a glitch is more likely . This isn't really a major issue, but I thought I'd bring it up just in case it was happening to other people as well. Thanks!
    Eliza

    obsessed_with_jo: Thanks for bringing it up -- We'll let our coder know.


    I've left moddom/fandom...though don't be surprised if I get caught lurking once in a blue moon.
    All questions pertinent to Ravenclaw need to be sent to ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
    If you wish to keep in touch, feel free to friend me on LJ - I don't friend anyone under the age of 18. Sorry!

    Otherwise, so long, and thanks for all the fish!

    Is it okay to post fan fictions on other sites to see the general response before posting on MNFF as long as we delete the one on the other site first?

    Your stories remain yours when they are posted on this site and so you are free to post them wherever you like. There are many authors who have their stories posted in more than one location - there is no need to delete them from other sites in order to post here It is worth noting, however, that our submission standards mean that having a story posted on another site is no guarantee that it will be accepted straight away here.

    I'm not sure this is the right place, but I've received at least five e-mail notifications for a new review when, actually, there's only one review. This happened a while ago but then the e-mails were all sent simultaneously, whereas these e-mails- I think the first one was sent some time yesterday evening and just now I was sent another one. Is this a glitch that can be solved or not?

    MissMeg said it was because she edited her review- so don't worry

    Has the 'Remove from Favorites' option moved on the archives? There are some stories that I would like to remove from my favorites list, but when I click on the story title my only options are to 'Add Story to Favorites' or 'Add Author to Favorites'.
    Sorry if this has ben asked before, but I can't search within threads right now.
    Thanks!
