Please do not upload fics that are still available on ffn. if you want to create copies of stories currently available on ffn, Stars (formerly TWCS), Fictionpad, or AO3, check for tips and alternatives here: You are not allowed to view links.
If a story is uploaded, please do not ask for a different format. Use Calibre or You are not allowed to view links.
to convert files from one format to another.
Thanks are always appreciated. It's two clicks. One click to download the story and one click on the thank you button. It's the least we can do for the time and effort people put in to finding and sharing with us!
Just a few other friendly reminders:
Please use the subject and tags lines as follows (with no colon after UL, LINK and REQ)
When uploading a story it would be like this: UL The ABC story by author123
For Links, it would be: Link The ABC story by author123
Requests for stories: REQ The ABC story by author123
Are you looking for a specific fic? In the upper right hand corner is a search box with a drop down menu. Type in your search criteria and you will probably find the story has already been uploaded. If you search and can't find what you're looking for, feel free to ask.
Remember - Search before you request and Search before you upload!
Let me make some other suggestions that might make your life easier. If you click the notify button (at the top or bottom of the page), you'll get an e-mail when something new is posted on the thread. You can do this for any thread you're interested in following. Also, if you bookmark the thread, when you access it through your bookmarks, it will have a little red "new" which, if you click on it, will take you to the last place you were on the thread. This also works if you access the thread through the home page (fanfiction alley, then the thread). You do have to be signed in to get the benefits of the "new" button. If you go the "notify" route, you'll be accessing from your e-mail and it will take you to the post that you received the notification on.
