    Delete Account

    Deletions need to be done by staff. I’d be happy to take care of that for you, though.

    Account Delete

    I’d need to know your pen name and email address you’re using so I can check. I’d recommend emailing that to me at so the spambots don’t get your email address.

    How do I add other tags

    It would be the field labeled “Content Tags” which is directly below the field for “Category.”

    How do I add other tags

    When you initially post a story, tags are available from a dropdown menu. You hold the CTRL key and highlight whatever tags you think will be applicable to the story. You can also add tags later on, but you will need to enter them manually, by typing them into the appropriate field. We have a great FAQ on how to do that, right here:

    Can't turn off anon reviews

    Hm. I can’t reset mine, either. Let’s hope either @DemonGoddess or @manta2g have a solution for that, since they have the level of database access required to see why that function isn’t working as intended. (I’m not a coder, so I can’t poke at it myself.)

    Deleting an account

    Just to confirm, is this the account? You have one story posted under the account. Once the account is deleted, that story will be gone for good, so please let me know if you need to copy that story first.
  9. Only original work can be copyrighted, of course. Fan fiction, due to the very nature of the beast, is not something you can copyright since the copyright belongs to the actual owner of the fandom for which you’ve written. I recall reading somewhere (and buggered if I can remember where) that the copyright on an original work is not necessarily preserved simply by mailing yourself a copy of the work in question, even if you never open the postmarked envelope. As @Desiderius Price points out, filing for copyright registration for an original work is actually quite inexpensive.

    The Unreviewed

    The review button isn’t broken, but for some reason, most readers seem reluctant to review. We’ve never had anything comparable to the kudos you find on other archives, although we do have the dragon prints, which is the hit counter, showing how many times your story was accessed. We did away with the old ratings of 1-5 +’s because we found it was being abused. Readers were targeting stories that didn’t have their OTP, or because the story was getting more hits than a friend’s story, or because the author’s posting of a story or update bumped them off the “front” page. We’re all still pretty wary after that, and I doubt we’ll have anything like kudos or likes or thumbs-up anytime soon in the archive. As far as whether or not to keep posting, I have some stories with no reviews. I have others that garner reviews. After an unfortunate incident which resulted in all my stories being deleted, I’m slowly editing and reposting, but all the previous reviews are gone. So… I post anyway because I’m not writing just to squirrel it away on my hard drive. Maybe people are reading, and not reviewing. That’s fine. When I read for pleasure (and not as part of my moderator duties), I try to review because I know I like getting a comment, or even some good constructive criticism. (The key word is constructive here… just saying.) But that’s my choice, to post anyway, even if no one drops a line to comment.

    Story Codes Clarifications

    I’m shaking my fist at George R R Martin.

    Story Codes Clarifications

    @Desiderius Price was actually correct. It’s the tag for Work In Progress, i.e, a story which is not yet complete. We do have readers who won’t read an unfinished story, and they do appreciate the tag, although it’s not one the moderation staff will insist appear in the story tags. Like the “COMPLETE” tag, we view it as a discretionary tag.

    Webcomic Request

    For the time being, you can put the story in Comics > Misc > General, with a notation in brackets such as [Webcomics – Falling Upright] so we know where to move the story once the category is created.

    If you can tell me your pen name, I can check for you. Even better, you could email us at and let me know which email addresses you think might be linked to your account. (I don’t recommend posting email addresses on a public forum, because spambots love finding those.)

    Okay, who spilled to @GeorgeGlass about the thirteenth Zodiac sign???

    Okay, I’ve located the account: If that’s the one, I can delete it for you.

    Delete Account

    I’m not finding any accounts associated with either email address you’ve provided, nor can I find an account for any variation of the pen name Redhot that is old enough to match. Do you have a link to the account?

    Trouble registering

    And now it looks like you’re registered. Glad it was cleared up, and welcome!

    Trouble registering

    I’m seeing two registrations pending, from two slightly different email accounts. That could be creating some confusion in the system. Please let me know which email address is correct: the one with numbers or the one without. I can delete the other account for you. Once that’s done, you can try requesting a resend:

    Not secure

    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.
