multiple authors

Posted 27 Apr 08

I'm sorry to addictedtotwilight mostly, but I'm going to disable the "Co-Author" function.  There have been too many reports of people adding others as co-authors without their consent.

 

I'm not really sure what this is going to do to existing stories that list co-authors, but I'm pretty sure they'll remain as they are.

good-that happened to me as well. people can still co-author, by just putting it in their summary that there are two authors writing it and putting it under one person's penname, for those of you who have a co-authored story at the moment.

Yeah, but that's not really fair to the person who doesn't get their name at the top of the story. It really sucks that some people had to go and ruin it for the rest of us. Why would you even want to say someone helped you write something? I don't know about you all, but if I post something, I worked hard on it, and I don't want to share credit. Unless of course, someone did help me write it, in which case, it's wrong to not acknowledge them.

Aw man, I am going to hate to have to tell Bleedforyou this, we had already planned out a whole series to co-author. I hate when people ruin a good thing. And i agree with Addictedtotwilight, if you aren't really co-writing why would you want to share the credit, and as for what awsomealice94 said, it still would be upsetting, because then you can't post your own chapters or answer your own reviews, which is a real downer. Maybe we could still have co-authors but if you want to, both authors have to contact the admins for that to happen, it would allow us co-authors to keep our privelage while protecting those that were hurt by the situation. -Bloodredskies- (Crosses arms and huffs, this is so annoying)

Man...This makes me very angry. I HATE it when people take your things, and mess up something awesome that I asked for! It was like recieving a christmas present from Santa which was JUST what you asked for, and then the stupid grinch took it away! Geez. *bangs head on table* This is so retarted. Sorry that happened to addictedtotwilight & awsomealice94.

Nothing happened to me! I don't think.... anyway, I'm just sad that there's no more co-writing...

an author put me as a co-writer for a story i haven't even heard of....it was sort of weird. so i am glad the co-author thing is no more. but i am sorry to those you liked it

Maybe the people put co-author to their stories to get more reviews...? To me it sounds like they only used very well known and favorited writers (you guys) so their story would get more reads and reviews. I'm sorry but that's just low and pretty selfish. :(

sniff sniff, i want co-authoring back!!!!!

Maybe... is it possible, maybe, if we wanted, we could have both authors email the admin that we agree, and they could put two authors? I know it's making more work for them, but I reall think it's unfair to those of us who actually used it for its intended use.

ah... that's sad me and jaspers_vampire_princess were gonna write something together but it's just not fair to the one who doesn't get her name posted

Awwww man I was just writing a story with leachfan.... dang this sucks :(

Ok. Does Kaiwynn's comment mean that I was really excited about it, and she's sorry for me because she had to get rid of it, or that someone used my name on a story? You all seem to think it's the latter, and its making me a little nervous. Why would someone do that? I'm not even on the most favorited or reviewed... do you guys know anything?

By bleedforyou

Posted 07 May 08

I don't know anything, but I just thought that was it since that's what happened to awsomealice94. ? I want co-authoring back :( cries! jeez.

i don't think it was just me, there were other reports-at least that's what Kaiwynn posted. if i was an admin, i would get a little fed up with reports talking about the co-writing thing, especially when your one of the one's that has to go and fix it constantly. so i feel for the admins, and i feel for all of you that wanted it. its a sore subject, isn't it?

By bloodredskies

Yup it is, i talked to the admin, and they can't add co-authors to single stories by request unless they add the comlete function back, which is now an impossibility because of the abuse reports. So this message is for all of those who abused it....THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!!!! a very very very sad

bleedforyou and bloodredskies, it sounds like you're planning on working together quite a bit. You could just create a shared account that you both have the password to. Considering you are planning a whole series together, that would probably be a good idea. rats, that is stinky for all of us who can't co-author anymore.

do you think they'll add a section on here for "the host" fan fiction? cuz i can already think of some pretty good stuff...

By bloodredskies

Posted 12 May 08
