WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH FF NET (101)

1 Name: セーラーエリス : 2009-11-27 00:40 ID:FA/b63Ns

i just clicked on the story and the text was on the center
now im trying to review and it doesn't let me do so,
also the buttons on the top abut font size and such text formatting shit dont work either.

2 Name: Scourgeofthegalaxy : 2009-11-27 03:45 ID:lz+Q7/uO

Might be a page glitch. Refresh the page, empty your cache, and if they don't work, turn your modem off and on again. If there's still a problem, save the webpage and attach it in an email to Fanfiction.net.

3 Name: welsh fariery : 2009-11-27 04:36 ID:pIQ4/v5S

it's not fanfic .net. i had the same problem. it's somthing wrong with your computer. my dad fixed it on mine. not sure how but it can be fixed. the only real problem with it like that is that you can't write reviwes.

4 Name: セーラーエリス : 2009-11-27 08:50 ID:K0mrDGVQ

I tried to find the errors but i failed though i downloaded the new version of firefox and now it works perfectly

5 Name: tiger002 : 2009-11-27 10:23 ID:U9jMPVCW

It's been working fine for me, at least recently.

6 Name: Penna : 2009-11-27 10:51 ID:FwidTZYD

Last night it wouldn't show me any of my uploaded documents, or let me change my profile page. Turns out it won't work on ym normal computer and I had to use my dad's laptop.

7 Name: me : 2009-11-27 10:51 ID:w1PXu40D

Hi is tiger002 the writer on FF.net who writes suitelife fics?....It's probably a glitch it happens to me try restarting the page clicking on something else restarting your computer clicking off the page and go back on.

8 Name: tiger002 : 2009-11-27 11:00 ID:U9jMPVCW

Yea, I'm the tiger002 that writes for Suite Life. Sorry me, but I have no idea who you are, but merry Christmas to you too.
Still working fine for me, but they've been having a lot of bugs recently

9 Name: セーラーエリス : 2009-11-27 11:02 ID:K0mrDGVQ

when i looked at the errors it was something about crone [i think thats the google browser program] and because yesterday my Real player asked me for update, it has an offer for a crone but i declined it. anyway
as i say previously i downloaded the latest version of Firefox and now it works perfectly
so it sure had to do with the browser
if you use firefox just upgrade it to the firefox 3.6 beta

10 Name: me : 2009-11-27 13:45 ID:zUS6MuIG

Glad it's better! and tiger002 too I shall send you a message on FF.net !this will be funny!hahaha lol...

11 Name: Blindfirekiller : 2009-12-04 08:34 ID:bSHpvUuU

Haven't had a single prob with fanfiction.net

had a couple of errors logging in once though but hasn't happened again

12 Name: inulover90 : 2010-01-29 22:10 ID:NmjlteXW

am i the only one having problems uploading my new documents? always saying it can't process it and there could be a problem with my file. i tried a few other files to check and either everything in my files have gone nuts or FF.net is off it's rocker.
almost didn't get my newest chapter up. doing a few last minute fixings and it wouldn't let me upload. who else is having problems?!

13 Name: tiger002 : 2010-01-29 23:11 ID:U9jMPVCW

I havn't tried uploading yet, but I've seen several other people having problems with it.

14 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女です : 2010-01-29 23:22 ID:/cy3ylRz

instead of updating a new file
copy your material and paste it in an already existent document, it might work

15 Name: inulover90 : 2010-01-29 23:43 ID:NmjlteXW

>>14
thanks! it's the only way i got the newest ones up.

16 Name: Trapped in Reality : 2010-02-01 17:26 ID:2eGg3TZs

There is a wide spread glitch to the site. A friend of mine was having problems uploading a DOCX file. She did what the #14 did, and it got through.

The site always has some glitch to it. Whether to PM options are down, the e-mail messaging system is down, or it randomly logs me out. Why am I still there?

17 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-01 18:01 ID:9noVWRL8

it has been logging me out these past days too.

18 Name: inulover90 : 2010-02-01 19:08 ID:qwQvTJad

>>17
yeah, it does that every now and again to me too. i have it saved and logged in for three days and the next day i go to the site and i have to log in again.

19 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-01 22:29 ID:9noVWRL8

>>18
man I don't even leave the site, My computer has been off since I don't even remember when, mozilla firfox is always on this site, FFnet H&M archive and some other sites. I technically never close ffnet I simply reload the page so when I go to give a review [which is at lead once per date] or click on that login button to go to my account it keeps asking me to log in.
:P

20 Name: Hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-02 02:57 ID:SUt9tdT5

I'm still having problems. I've even had reviewers threatening to leave the story over formatting issues, which are FF.Net's problem. I can't upload, can't review and everything is centered.

21 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-02 03:08 ID:alC+0nuZ

>>20 try what I said in >>14
it works and you can actually avoid the formatting issues.

22 Name: Hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-02 08:05 ID:v/As03uM

>>21 I did that already and instead of it all being centered, it became one big paragraph. It's a case of leaving it as it is at the moment (the entire fic ha/site seems to have been centered).

23 Name: Hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-02 08:30 ID:v/As03uM

Found out why things weren't working. The new Java came out and FF.Net has obviously upgraded itself to match it, thus locking out anyone with older flash. Upgrading your flash or browser should help you with uploading, although there are still glitches.

24 Name: inulover90 : 2010-02-02 09:47 ID:qwQvTJad

>>19
oh.... i haven't had that problem... at least not yet. knock on wood.

25 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-02 13:05 ID:fjs68VJt

>>23 I had everything centered when I originally posted this thread. When later I upgraded my Mozilla Firefox everything worked perfectly.

26 Name: inulover90 : 2010-02-02 22:03 ID:qwQvTJad

anyone having trouble getting the published story to update? i switched chapters with the updated ones and it's been over an hour and they still haven't updated for people to read the beta-ed one.

any one having problems or ideas as to how to get it working?

27 Name: RayRay : 2010-02-02 22:47 ID:M98ImKwx

I've been having problems just getting updates, alerts for new chapters coming through after 24hours, and then forum alerts not coming through either.

It sucks man.

28 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-02 22:50 ID:fjs68VJt

I just receive my alerts of reviews/fav etc this morning

29 Name: Francys Pai : 2010-02-03 02:29 ID:Ad0nl7mX

I think yesterday they were doing maintenance since my friend was trying to post. Though it looks to be done now.

30 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-02-03 04:18 ID:tG1uprK5

I had received reviews today and read then in the mail alert but they don't seem to appear in the fic's review page.

31 Name: hikarinimichitasora : 2010-02-03 04:46 ID:PLlGTv7C

Yeah. I had problems last night setting up a new account for a co-write with a friend. We still 'don't exist' according to the server.

Also, the problems with uploading should be fixed. I hate that they didn't say anything on the main page about all this though.

32 Name: Vic Taylor : 2010-02-03 06:08 ID:aiSHRFzb

Just uploaded a new chapter, and got the email to prove it. Only when I click on the link in the email, or go through my profile page, it tells me there's no chapter there.

???

33 Name: Bola : 2010-02-04 04:35 ID:5HUqrhNQ

Same thing happening!

34 Name: NancyLee : 2010-02-04 11:16 ID:HiHN/H0t

when there is an error in uploading documents... which is not ones own fault
when one hits publish or save, it realigns and un bolds thing etc.

overall, I think it fantastic though
it is way easier to use than other ones, which you have to pay for and are way harder to find a way around the site!!

:3

35 Name: Vic Taylor : 2010-02-05 05:43 ID:aiSHRFzb

Now it's doing the opposite. I updated again, and the new chapter's available on the site and everything, but the email alert hasn't come through.

Urh!

<hits computer>

36 Name: Vic Taylor : 2010-02-05 23:19 ID:aiSHRFzb

The email alert finally came through. :)

The people in charge of the site also say they're looking into it. Apparently the site was down for a day or two (don't remember this ???) and that's the reason the lag existed.

37 Name: Bola : 2010-02-13 09:21 ID:5HUqrhNQ

-hits laptop hard as well- It doesn't. want. to. save. my. documents. nor. send. me. email. notifications. AARGH!

38 Name: inulover90 : 2010-05-04 06:05 ID:psfHJBLa

urg!!!!!!!! am i the only one having a problem with he site???? it wont let me even load the page at all. i can't get into my page or the main one!!!!! is it just my computer being stupid or something????????

39 Name: Vic Taylor : 2010-05-04 08:15 ID:aiSHRFzb

@38 - Try refreshing the page a few times. Usually works for me.

40 Name: inulover90 : 2010-05-04 20:23 ID:psfHJBLa

>>39 thanks!

43 Name: Sadnessdoll : 2010-05-24 19:23 ID:h+bQW/ac

Cant someone help me: My email is: sadnessdoll_angelicmlice@yahoo.com

44 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-05-24 21:27 ID:29A9anoA

probably is FF.net's meter it happened before
unfortunately the hits will stay at Zero the days the problem stays and after they fix it the hits will be lost.
you can mail them and let them know

45 Name: Ambrele : 2010-06-21 19:41 ID:PhvOV6Vq

I get ten reviews and tons of hit, yet they wont let me see then for a week. Then on the the I-pod I HATE THE MOBILE VERSION!!!!!

46 Name: BleedingHeartConservative : 2010-07-08 12:21 ID:v2EkdL8y

Funny how this got to be one of the biggest threads so fast, huh? The site seems to be up and running today, but I have certainly had my share of frustration when it goes down, especially when I've promised others an update!!

47 Name: tiger002 : 2010-07-08 16:05 ID:U9jMPVCW

Yeah, I think one of the funniest things I did was to review my friends' new story I updated my story and managed to find a way to include my review into that, and actually integrated that into the story.

48 Name: Stefan-sama : 2010-07-17 07:46 ID:jn1d1qhV

Ugh, the traffic is always breaking down for me. It never lets me see the hits I would've gotten if the system hadn't broken down, either. Plus, editing is always a pain, since you gotta update the document then replace the chapter instead of just editing the story directly.

49 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-07-19 01:10 ID:NU7V/qFX

FF net is acting funny again!
my latest update was like 11 in the row of stories in the archive and since yesterday it came up 4th of so because updates later than 13th of July are no visible LOL but when you click in the story you can see the update, also for once more the hits are not show in the traffic page.

50 Name: fan-to-fiction : 2010-07-19 11:55 ID:HhhZKY3R

Sometimes I post a story and a week latter I try to search it with the search function.
And then it says it can't be found.

51 Name: castielannatogetherforever : 2010-07-19 14:53 ID:KlR0K6jK

i posted a chapter and checked to make sure the link worked like i always do then i got a messagge the next day saying that they couldn't get to the chapter. i went back and tried the link again and it wasn't working. seriously? what is up with ff?

52 Name: Crimson Cataclysm : 2010-07-20 11:22 ID:6PL/haG2

FF.net is strange for me too. Sometimes it'll show the updated fics of an author I watch, and then sometimes it'll randomly say that a multi-chaptered fic only has one-chapter with no reviews (when it actually has a good share).
Oh, and it goes back and forth in showing my profile the last time I updated, and my more recent update (one moment it's: last updated a day ago. and then other moments: last updated a month ago).

It's just...a LITTLE bit frustrating.

53 Name: Crimson Cataclysm : 2010-08-01 09:30 ID:6PL/haG2

I have a question that I've been wanting to ask, but have no idea where the appropriate place is to ask. I don't really feel that I should make a thread on it either.
I know you can't hyperlink anything in stories, but I've seen people hyperlink to their livejournal/deviantart/youtube on their profiles. But I honestly have no idea what the formatting is to do it. :/ And not like posting the whole URL, but using a word like "My Youtube!" as the link to the page.
You guys have no idea how stupid I feel for not even knowing this. Because I feel like I've looked around everywhere to find out but can't seem to find the answers while everyone else already knows. :/ It's frustrating. I feel like a twelve year old forum noob again.

54 Name: CleverBast : 2010-08-01 09:38 ID:crBDKxL3

it seems to be working well for me for the past year... other than the search engine crashes! the darned thing crashed on me three times in one day once!

55 Name: Yemi Hikari : 2010-08-01 09:58 ID:A6AGK5YC

>>54 - I don't know. I actually avoid doing anything but actual normal links, for the reason that, I've come across a page with a LOT of that kind of stuff, and my page kept freezing. I believe it was because of their coding, not becauser there was so many URLs.

56 Name: Creation of Pokerus : 2010-08-01 11:52 ID:W55iiaJQ

@Crimson: I learned about that stuff in school once, but I forgot. XD I'm no help.

57 Name: Crimson Cataclysm : 2010-08-01 14:02 ID:6PL/haG2

Haha, looks like I can't even just put the link on the page. (I'm trying to link to my livejournal.) What do I do just to make the link by itself work? God I am such a noob.

58 Name: Yemi Hikari : 2010-08-01 23:49 ID:A6AGK5YC

I've copy pasted all my links as full urls, and they work...

59 Name: Crimson Cataclysm : 2010-08-02 10:35 ID:6PL/haG2

Hmmm...I guess I did something wrong. I'll try again then

60 Name: castielannatogetherforever : 2010-08-05 17:58 ID:V4sBS04F

>>54 when you go to the place where you edit your profile at the very top there is a sign that looks like a chain-link if you put your mouse ontop of that it should say link so you know it's the right thing. then you find whatever website you want to link, copy the URL, then go highlight the words that you want to make be a the link, go back up to the link symbol, click it, and a little box will appear with a place to put the URL and you paste it into that box hit okay and then it'll turn into a link.

61 Name: Crimson Cataclysm : 2010-08-05 22:17 ID:6PL/haG2

>>61 (I love you so much right now)

62 Name: enihpledamira : 2010-08-11 11:12 ID:Dqye1Ldr

in my chapters , . = or even entire words or sentences are automatically deleted. And no, it isn't because i forgot to save

63 Name: Nightlife666 : 2010-08-16 01:29 ID:lsC6NnQ+

The site epicly crashed a few months back and they haven't fixed all the glitches. I lost all of my previously loaded documents but thankfully they were still on the site

64 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-09-25 11:01 ID:W+y0Az+t

FF net seems quite Dead, half of the links do not work at all, others work half of the day.

has anyone tried to update a fic of something??

65 Name: A. : 2010-09-25 11:36 ID:H94DVmZa

Nope, but it won't let me read most of the stories I want to. Does this have anything to do with the RedBootton thing?

66 Name: セーラーエリスは刀の女ですか。 : 2010-09-25 11:40 ID:W+y0Az+t

I don't know what that RedBootton is I have never seen it

67 Name: Elkkun : 2010-09-25 12:26 ID:VOCgDZcc

FF.net seems to be having problems with filtering and actually going onto fictions lately...

It keeps saying it can't process properly o-o.

When I format and center my profile on FF.Net, it'll save, and then I'll come back maybe five minutes later to look at it and everything will be squished to the left, or sometimes it'll just be one gigantic block lurking in the middle of the screen.

It really, really sucks.

70 Name: Yemi Hikari : 2010-10-17 21:42 ID:OT8IcAX2

>>70 - That happens sometimes to me and I don't know waht it is.

71 Name: WindAlias : 2010-10-18 07:37 ID:lOmAhdiN

>>71 It's so annoying. I mean, I'll take all that time to set up my page and write down everything so it looks nice, but then FF.Net just screws everything up. I hate it.

72 Name: tiger002 : 2010-11-20 17:22 ID:HsXG47c5

73 Name: Gin : 2010-11-20 18:21 ID:6PXW9Ymk

There's an announcement on the front page about the issue. I take it you've been having "blackout" periods? Something to do with the servers, I think... it's getting rather frustrating, truth be told. :\

I UNDERSTAND YOUR PAIN! It really agravates me! I'm all like WTF I would LIKE to review! And then the other thing that is wrong with FF.Net is that the Seach is ALWAYS/ALWAYS/ALWAYS DOWN! I makes me made, they need to get someone to fix it.

The admin should really take a look at the Edit/Publish Story and polish up its function because it likes to bunch up all of my paragraphs when I upload a story so I have to manually separate them, grrr. Plus it does other weird stuff like triple the word count after I save my changes :S Hate it.

79 Name: Mungetsu : 2010-11-30 19:17 ID:u+KFCczx

Um... Is there something wrong with the ff servers or whatever right now? A black out? 'Cause whenever I click on anything to do with ff, the screen just turns white.

There are alot of things wrong with FF net. For one thing, you can't click on an author's name and see the forum button. Another thing is that the messages you send to one person comes out as a whole new message.

So frustrating as I can't upload it without risking faults.

Anyone having problems uploading DocX files? I can upload my file as a story but it keeps trying to connect and ends up saying timed out. Any ideas on how to fix it? Maybe I'm doing something different or something. Been trying to send a beta-ed story to a writer for the last week. This is getting ridiculous! Ideas, thoughts? Any thing is appreciated as of right now.
