|The Cost Of Fame|
|There are good ways to become known.|
There are bad ways to become known.
Writing good stories and leaving good reviews are both good ways to become known.
Leaving several thousand reviews in the vein of "thank you i take pride in my mad posting abilities- lets see if i can do it again ready submit submit submit!" is not a good way to become known. It will get your account deleted, it will get the reviews deleted, and it will not make you or the story any more well-liked. Deleting these wastes good modding time that could be spent in the queue.
Do not do this. Authors who do not report such spamming promptly will have the spammed story deleted as well.

|Mugglenet Fanfiction's annual winter challenge is upon us once again. This proved to be the most popular challenge ever last year and I hope we can match it this year. There is still time to enter the challenge if you drop by the Great Hall over on the Beta Help Forums (link in the navigation bar at the side of the page). We now have a good group of the stories validated so if you want to dive into some wintry, Christmassy reading you'll find it under the Winter's Tales subcategory of the challenges. I hope you enjoy what our fantastic authors have for you this year and please do leave them a review, no matter how small, if you enjoyed their festive treats.|

|The Queue is closed until Monday guys. MNFF is taking a Thanksgiving break. Please use this extra time to perfect your stories, and we will see you back in the queue in a couple of days.|
EDIT: The queue has reopened. If you are having trouble making the submission page work properly, please take a moment to delete your cookies, your internet files, and clear your history. This should be done while you are logged off the site. If anyone continues to have issues, please contact a moderator for assistance.
Edit Part 2: If you are still having issues, repeat the cookie deletions and file deletions. The error should be under control and the process should now work for you. Thanks for your patience guys!

|As promised, the staff of MuggleNet Fan Fiction have been working to give a little something back to all the authors and reviewers who have made this site what it is today. First up: a plethora of avatars and banners, made especially for this wondrous occasion. See them here at our Beta Forums!|
Secondly, many of the moderators are participating in a month-long project in which we write a collection of themed one-shots. Each chapter is a different one-shot by a different mod, and the "story" will be updated about once every 5-7 days. See it here!
We hope you enjoy these tidbits of fun. Thanks again for two fantastic years, everyone! Here's to another two! *Raises Butterbeer*

|Happy Birthday MNFF!|
|Today, the 14th of November, officially marks MuggleNet Fan Fiction's second birthday! It is difficult for us to believe that we’ve been modding fan fictions for two full years-- you guys have truly made time fly. On behalf of all of MuggleNet’s staff, I want to extend a huge thank-you to everyone reading this. Whether you're an author, a Beta reader, or a reviewer, your contribution to MNFF has made this site one of the best Harry Potter fan fiction archives on the net. We have some of the finest work ever written by Harry Potter fans, and this is all in credit to each of you. Thank you for sticking by us through thick and thin, and for making our jobs here a memorable, rewarding experience.|
To show our gratitude, we are currently putting together some celebratory features, so keep an eye out over the next week or so. Thanks again, everyone, and happy birthday MNFF!
