What really pisses you off about FFN? Site features not working? Constant glitches as they 'improve' the site? Vent here.7/14/2011 #1 Report
FFN Pet Peeve #1: The change in the review reply feature to make it exactly like a PM, which now makes me type in a message head (it was so much easier before when it did that for you!), and won't let me reply to users who have disabled PMs. *shakes fist* The old reply feature was SO much better! *thumbs down* FFN FAILS AGAIN!7/14/2011 .

When doesn't it?
Hmm...let's see. The fact that this site keeps track of all the hits on your stories, but actually don't track down how many people read them. Seriously, I see that I have hundreds and thousands of hits total over all for my stories from the day I published them. I wish I could keep track how many people have actually taken the time to check the story out. That's more important than the number of hits. If I were a published author, I don't just care how many people looked at the book, I want to know how many people actually bought it!7/17/2011 #3 Report
Oneof my tales has this year had nearly a thousand hits but no reviews. Though I think someone favoured it!11/16/2011 #6 Report
I totally understand about the review thing. (Sigh) But I will try not to worry TOO much about it. oh, who am I kidding. Some peeps just can't be bothered. grrrr.11/16/2011 #7 Report
Reviews are down all around as the fandom has fizzled down to the die hard fans and a few newbies who are just getting old enough to appreciate the story. I expect the closer we get to The Hobbit's Release it will pick up, especially AFTER it's release, though I expect a lot of it to be Hobbit centered fic, probably with a lot of Tauriel, the warrior elf maiden of Mirkwood. *eye roll*11/16/2011 #8 Report
Okay, now I don't feel quite so bad. I don't get much in the way of reviews for the Neverwinter Nights as there aren't as nearly as many readers for that fandom and for BtVS, I have resorted to all OCs for one story, so unless one really likes the idea of a new Slayer and her adventures and plights, they may like my Tale of A SLayer fic. But nope, most just want to see some Spuffy and/or Bangel action. (As in Spike/Buffy and Buffy/Angel.) Too bad though.
My dad however thought writing a Buffy fandom was a total waste of time, but I actually think my Slayer tale is one of the best things I have written for a fanfic. ANyway....11/16/2011 #9 Report
I should point out this wasn't a Tolkien story. Though it had his influences!11/17/2011 #10 Report
