Ragini (6/15 11:18pm): Oh no! I hope the creator revises and reposts. I was really looking forward to that one.
Holly (6/15 09:20pm): The only exception is if the creator has stated they welcome constructive criticism. Please see EF's TOS for information about constructive criticism, including guidelines of what constructive criticism is (actionable advice in line with creator's vision) and what it is not (difference of opinion).
Holly (6/15 09:18pm): Friendly reminder! Please do not remark critically on any creator's work, whether or not that work is housed at EF. These comments can be incredibly discouraging with devastating consequences, up to and including the creator choosing to remove their work.
Ragini (6/15 08:36am): And thanks to the Admins for taking my suggestion and running with it! I see Slavery is now listed in the warnings!!! Thank you thank you thank you!
Ragini (6/15 08:35am): Oh no! I'd put that one on my reading list! Things like that are why I love that download feature, btw.
Holly (6/14 11:09am): @Marshmallow17 - The author voluntarily removed their works from the archive.
Marshmallow17 (6/14 10:29am): I was reading 'Early One Morning', and was a couple of chapters feom the end and it seems to have vanished....

Holly (6/11 07:45am): @LovingWilliam - It was removed by the author. We'll reply to your email as well (this happened while most of us were asleep, so we're just catching up).
LovingWilliam (6/11 01:56am): I was reading a really great fic here on E.F. and suddenly it disappeared without a trace. I send an email to the mods about it, but was wondering if anyone else has had that happen? From one chapter to the next, POOF - gone!

Joyeux anniversaire! May you all be well celebrated & gifted with all you most desire. May you have a day filled with joy & love & laughter. May this year bring blessings on blessings & success in all you attempt.

yellowb (6/9 08:41pm): I'd say in the age of AI it's totally true that it's best not to feed the trolls. It's just more fodder.
Sigyn (6/9 05:11pm): But they're asking for clicks. It's clickbait. Best not to feed to trolls, isn't it? (I've heard conflicting views.)
Joan963z (6/8 11:23pm): you can serch 15 TV Shows Ruined by One Character and go give the artical a thumbs down. You and also write a comment. This writer said said arrow was about the Flash. so the whole thing was bad.
CheekyKitten (6/8 12:20pm): @maryperk What? If that had been the case Joss would have killed him off when he planned to. Spike was so popular he not only became a regular, he made it through the whole show and then became a fan favorite on Angel... wtf?
WilliamMyBeloved (6/8 10:35am): @maryperk what fans?! Probably the Buffy boards on Reddit is the source cause there’s no way haha especially with how popular James is at cons and on cameos lol and of course fanworks! SMH well we know the truth hug

The Triumphant Return of Mystery Month!

Are you guys excited? We sure are! We haven’t run Mystery Month since 2022, following a community-voted decision to alternate between Mystery Month and Drabblemania for our July events. And the results were amazing. We don’t like to brag (oh, who are we kidding, we LOVE to brag!) Drabblemania 2023 was a huge success. That said, we think the community chose very wisely, because our original Mystery Month is an event like no other, and we’re excited to get back to it!

If you weren’t around in 2022, or need a refresher, here’s the crux:

For the entire month of July (with a little spill over into August), participants will create works (either text-based stories or narrative artwork) that are five chapters long. Each chapter must respond in some way to a given prompt, and the works must be complete at five chapters––no longer, no shorter––with...

Known Issue: Mobile Posting from Google Docs

Hi all,

We have some bad news. We learned today of an issue posting from Google Docs on iOS to the site. Basically, when you paste the text into the site (or most other places on your phone that we could see), certain special characters are not being correctly copied, so when they paste you get something that looks like — when all you wanted was an em-dash.

The good (?) news is that this is a widespread bug caused by either Apple or Google, and not anything we did, and is affecting other sites, including AO3, and other apps such as Apple Mail, Notes, and so on. Unfortunately, this makes work-arounds a little tricky. Posting on desktop is currently unaffected by the bug, but we know not everyone has access to desktop. If that applies to you, then the best option is probably a free Office 365 account, but even here we found during testing that copy/pasting from Docs to Word that certain formatting such as italics and bolding were lost. Copying from Docs to Word to EF also...
