Breaking Dawn

Posted 16 Aug 08

I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that, though this site is meant for posting fan-fiction, it is still actually a Twilight series site for FANS (hence FAN-fiction). Now, I can understand that people have varying opinions of Breaking Dawn. I didn't like it much, myself.

Feel free to say that you didn't like the book, and that you reccomend people don't read it. However, please, no author bashing or book bashing.

For example:

It's okay to say something like, "I didn't like the book because it moved too fast and Bella was totally out of character."

It's not okay to say something like, "Stephenie Meyer is so stupid because she messed up this book. I thought she was better but I guess she's just a sucky mormon writer."

If I see any bashing in a story, I will politely ask the author to remove the bashing. Any comments on news items or otherwise that are rudely bashing will also be deleted.

Please, keep it clean.

Now, onto a different and slightly more important topic.

I'm sure many of you have noticed that the submissions queue is moving abnormally slowly. For some reason, I can't stay in the queue for more than a few moments without getting the server error. I spend an hour or so on here at a time validating, and at least half of that time is spent refreshing the page and waiting for the server error to fix itself. I re-visit the page multiple times usually, but school starts back up soon for me, and I'm involved in colorguard with my school so I'm only going to be able to get on once or twice daily.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and I thank you for your patience.

hm i know what you mean about the bashing....i would love to bash myself but there are some times where you have to keep your opinions to yourself....Author's-if you honestly have to bash or you think you might implode if you don't, use your LJ's or something like that to do it. people might get the wrong idea about this site if you don't stop the bashing I have been getting those weird server error pages when i try to update my stories or even just edit the summarys.....and it moves so much slowly than what it used to....is there some way to fix that? and if TA needs more validators/admins i'd be happy to help out :)

Yes, please cut the bashing. If you weren't a FAN of it, you really don't need to be on a FANfiction site. Personally I think everyone needs to read it a second time through--it's much, much better that way :)

I agree with Blonde Bella. I saw lots of negative reviews about BD, but I really enjoyed it. Sure, the plot may have been a little out there, but I found the ending totally satisfying.

I wish I knew what to do with the server errors.

Kaiwynn still has control over the website - I can't do much except for, well, moderate.

I've spoken to her about it and there isn't really much she can do. We're not really sure why the problem is happening, so we don't really know how to fix it. Hopefully, it resolves itself... but I'm tending to think that it will not just because it's been going on for awhile now.

Hallejuah. I was in there validating with you, but I'm still super slow compared to you. Maybe it's my Internet Explorer. I'll have to try Firefox.
