    Does this mean that you have a Winter Holiday that is one month long???
    Myself I have just begun planning for what I possibly could write for the event.

    Just in time for the holiday season, we're seeing an influx of spambots, on our Forum and in the Archive's review pages. Here's what you can do.
    If you see a spambot post in the Forums, click the little link at the top right corner of the post that reads "Report Post." The moderators will make it go away as quickly as possible. If there are multiple posts, report them all. You can leave a one-word report if you'd like, such as "Spam" or "Spambot" but it's not necessary. When we read the report, we'll know right away what the issue is.
    If you see a spambot review in the Archive, and you're the story's author, you can always delete it. If you're not the author, you can report the review using the "Report Review" link in the lower left corner of the review. It does help immensely, since these reports are delivered via email, to drop in that one-word report, but even if you don't, it's pretty easy to see those spambot reviews when the review board is accessed.
    What shouldn't you do? Don't click any links. Who knows where most of those links have been? For all we know, they could have taken a quick trip through the malware pool before landing on your screen. Practice safe surfing and don't click anything, especially when the post is in Cyrillic, or German, or some funky font of dubious provenance. We like our members and want you all to stay safe!

    The weather outside is frightful

    Let us enjoy what remains of this interesting year.
    Krampusnacht is neigh
    Winter holidays have come.
    So sit back relax and enjoy the eggnog and the hot coco.
    Ignore the horde of snowmen besieging the front door, the rabid elves on the shelves and hatchlings from their decorative bulbs. The holidays are upon us!
     
    The rules are thus in our yearly wintry offerings!

    Thanks, IR! My story is in the works; will probably need a few weeks to finish.
    It doesn’t have a name yet, but it will be the third and final story in the trilogy that began 2 years ago with “The Ninth Reindeer” and continued last year with “Checking It Twice.”

    Let me start by saying that AFF is NOT for sale. I am, however, extravagantly interested in what gave you the notion that we were open to such a thing. I don’t recall any mention anywhere of the site being offered for sale, and I’m fairly sure I would have noticed any signs on the virtual front lawn.
    If you are serious about starting a fiction archive, however, that’s a separate discussion.

    BronxWench got a reaction from WillowDarkling in PornEater's Tomb Raider stories?   
    I’d really like everyone to think a little before posting a request like this. You’re asking for the name of the doujinshi that caused PornEater to pull his stories. That’s utterly baffling to me, both as a moderator and as a writer. Why would you support the work of a plagiarist—a thief, to put it plainly?
    So, here’s the moderator portion of this post: ANY POST WITH THE NAME OF, OR A LINK TO THAT DOUJINSHI WILL BE DELETED.

    Sadly, the only way to deflect them is to turn off anonymous reviews, which is an account-wide function and not just by the story. But @Desiderius Price is absolutely right about not following the links. Delete the reviews, and click NOTHING. As I sweep the archive, I delete things like that on sight.

    There’s no obvious rhyme or reason to which stories are getting them, as some are in Cartoons and some are in Originals (the only 2 archive sections in which I have stories posted). A recent post from @InBrightestDay suggests that he’s getting them, too. Anything to be done besides deleting them?

    I’m guessing spam (the least nefarious idea), and you definitely should NOT follow those links, wherever they may lead is likely a place you don’t want to go.

    I’ve gotten three: two on WitS and one on The Least I Can Do over in Books.  I’ve deleted them, and thankfully had the same thought as Bronx when it came to the links.  I don’t really want to turn off anonymous reviews, as I’ve gotten several genuine reviews from fans who simply don’t have an account, so I’ll just keep deleting them as they pop up.
