    A link on reddit that doesn’t go to Rick Astley singing “Never gonna give you up”? It had to happen sometime!
    Thanks! And it’s never too late to leave copious reviews :p

    The archive is separated by medium, not by network, so those shows would fall into the Cartoons category.

    I’ve never actually used the WIP tag. I always figured that if the story doesn’t have either the COMPLETE tag or the Oneshot tag, then it’s clear the story is still in progress. (Not that the COMPLETE tag actually stops commenters from asking about what will happen in the next chapter.)

    Sometimes they just need cleaning up a little, hence the expression “Bring a bucket and a mop for this work in progress.”

    Unfortunately I think you need to access the database to create new categories, and that’s why only DG can do it. But I am sure that DG would love the help, if she found the time to show you how it’s done.

    Is it possible for anyone other than DemonGoddess to create new archive categories? The list of requests has really stacked up.
    If this is something that can be done only by members of the Illuminati who were born under a mysterious thirteenth zodiac sign, then I understand. But if it’s something any fool can do, than I would like to volunteer to be that fool.

    WillowDarkling reacted to Thundercloud in Not secure   
    I am just a user here, but my professional opinion is that if you are paying customer, you have good reasons to demand the site to be really secure before you enter sensitive information. For services that is offered for free on the Internet, you should not enter sensitive information at all. This lowers the impact of AFF not being secure since the consequences of failure is less.

    With this said is is also my recommendation that the AFF staff plan make a plan for eventually making AFF more secure since there is constant arms race between the browser developers and the bad guys. Things that work today in the browser can be turned off permanently if the security professional determine that it used by too much malware. For instance, you can look at the list https://www.chromestatus.com/features#security where they are considering 57 security issues for Chrome, many of those will break older sites that not keeping up with security development. No reason for any of the current proposals to break AFF, but new additions happen on the list constantly. It is a bit like owning a car...most of the time it just works, but eventually you need to do emergency repair if you avoid doing regular maintenance.

    Exactly, @Thundercloud. We always try to remind members not to post email addresses or other personal information publicly, either on archive bios or here on the forum. Additionally, it’s just good sense to either use a password manager, or to change your passwords regularly.  I also take the precaution of paying for better antivirus and malware protection, rather than rely on what comes with the computer, especially after Microsoft’s recent data breach. Ultimately, I see it as my responsibility to safeguard my computer and my data, because the big players, Google/Chrome included, don’t really care about me.
    Hopefully, DG will have time soon to look into the matter, if her RL work schedule ever lightens up.

    You awake to find yourself in a forest clearing. Distantly, you can hear singing. It is pretty fucking tuneless. Oh fuck, it might be Bieber. To the east here’s a sign which reads “Quit looking East”, and to the West is a very suspicious tree stump.  If you choose to examine the previously unmentioned mudhole Go to 35. If you choose to win self-determination for the Republic of Molossia go to 63. If you want to know about the unsightly rash spreading across your buttocks go to 28 (Charges may apply).

    WillowDarkling got a reaction from JayDee in Will this site close? I hope not.   
    As far as I know, we are all dedicated to keep the site open for as long as we can. The donations button is just for any of our users who would like to pitch in to help pay for the hosting costs and such of the site. We are not a commercial site (if I understand the definition of that correctly) and we rely on ad revenue to pay costs.
    So, we are not going to close in the near future, if we can help it.
