Valerie, this is a known bug in the software. :( It only lists the first "page" of stories for anyone. With luck this will be corrected in a future upgrade, soon.

Umm, reviews aren't showing up. I thought it was just me, that I was losing track ie- I'd get three notifications of new reviews throughout the day, but only one would be on the story. But I just looked at Smartkid37's latest story. According to the header, she has four reviews, but if you click on the reviews, only one shows up.

Hmmm...that's weird. I don't know, but we'll see what we can do. It may be a temporary bug.

Thanks to the wonderful Angelique (Nepeace), the Story Board has been upgraded and the problem with the missing reviews seems to have been fixed. Also fixed was the limitation that didn't allow one to see all of an author's stories.

If you see any problems with the Story Board (we're aware of the front page display on the left-hand side that lists the number of challenges and challengers three times), do let us know. :)

Fantastic! Many thanks to Angelique!

I especially appreciate being able to see all of a writer's stories--many of my favorite authors are quite prolific. =D

Hello everyone,

I just had a quick question about a story's read count. I want to post links to my stories for the Hinky's list but I don't like to affect my stories read count. So my question is this, does the read count still go up if I'm logged in when I enter the story? So in other words, does it still register me as a reader even though I'm the author? If push comes to shove, I'll just put up a link to my author page but I would prefer to link each individual story if possible.

I don't think the storyboard differentiates between author and other reader, unfortunately.

Hi,

The alert on the SB that tells me when I have a new review on one of my stories isn't working. :-/ I checked, it's the right email address, but I'm not getting the 'you have a new review' email, when I know I have a new review. :thinking: Help, please?

Thanks,

Valerie :)

I don't have an answer for you. With luck, the email may just be held up somewhere (perhaps even by your email provider) and it may come out in a day or two.

If someone could provide a link to where I find what the ratings mean I would appreciate it (had it then lost it!!). Not sure if my recent story should have a higher rating or warning. Later on there will be some mentions of rape but not ah specific detail. It was a T on ffnet.

Any guidance you can provide as to how you handle that sort of issue here would be gratefully received.

Most ff.net "T" ratings would translate to either FR13 or FR15, depending on the story content.

Here's a link to how our rating system works:

Thanks. It's hard to know but just to be safe I think I'll go with FR15. Thinking discussion of rape could count as 'adult theme' and there is some kind of serious angst. Slowly getting the hang of how things work around here.

No problem! Let us know if there's anything else we can assist with.

The forums can be a bit intimidating at first, but there's a method to the madness. You'll get the hang of it. :yes:

I'd say FR15 if you have discussion of rape. :yes:

Pat, were you previously able to upload to the SB and now cannot? I think in the other thread Andrea mentioned that you could only upload things written in notepad. I've never uploaded to the SB (nor have I been able to), so I'm not sure, but that may be the case :)

This is a bit random but the only place I can think of to post it: I put my theme on the storyboard to Zenlike but when in that theme, I can't seem to find a link to the challenges page! I've changed back to nfa-blue because it's just too frustrating not to be able to find the challenges to enter, read entries, see new challenges etc, but I do find the Zenlike theme nicer for general browsing so if there's something simple I'm missing and you guys could let me know...? I may just be being stupid :-/

Hm...I just changed mine to check and I could not find the challenge link either :-/ Unfortunately, I don't know much about the layouts on the Storyboard. I'll see if someone else can shed more light on this.

I didn't know there was a choice of themes, Sarah. I don't think that the SB is set up to have more than one theme. I think that the setup we have was only meant for the nfa-blue.

Ahhhh no worries - I did wonder if that was the case! At least it explains the lack of a challenge link. Never mind :)

Who do I need to PM to get characters added to the character list for the Story Board?

I'll try to figure it out.

Lia, try scrolling down below that. I think that's only in the header. Everything else seems to be working fine below it.

I wanted to run this by you guys, because it was kind of odd. I got e-mail notifications from nfacommunity.com the other day, telling me I had new reviews on some of my stories. When I clicked the links to see the reviews, there were either no reviews at all, or whatever was there was from like 2013-2014. I'm not sure if it's a glitch with the SB, or if someone did review, and then delete their review... :-/

Andrea, what happened is that we had a very prolific spammer over the weekend. He left nearly 70 reviews on various stories and I went through and deleted them all. So you would still have the notification of the reviews, but when you went to the SB, the reviews would be gone.

Ohhhh that makes sense of a disappearing review I had. I assumed someone had just decided they didn't like the story after all and had deleted it. It didn't occur to me it was spam. I may have issues... :th_uhoh2:

I had more e-mail like this the other day, that lead to nonexistent reviews. Is our spammer at it again?

Yes. We seem to be in spam mode. There have been a number of spammers over the last few weeks. We just don't have any good way to keep them out on the SB. We're much better equipped here.

Another note, have you tried banning any IP addresses the spammers may be using with the CPanel of the main domain (maybe the storyboard has that option too), Teri?

We can't do that on the SB, unfortunately. efiction doesn't seem to have much at all in the way of spam prevention. We can ban by IPs on the forum and we do that which is why there's very little spam here, but we can't over there.

Yeah and with eFiction being so out of date security wise. I'm sorry you all got stuck with all that spam. :hug2col:
