LJ recently moved it's servers to Russia and changed it's Terms of Service. There's an article on Gizmodo here and on another site here. I've had some people ask if we are going to move the Comm to another site. At the moment, no we don't. But I wanted to get opinions on the matter.

The import/backup/move to dreamwidth is all done. You can find the comm at [community profile] spnstoryfinders and I’m [personal profile] kruel_angel_lj there. We still have no plans to move and the majority (53.6%) of you voted to not move. So for now, I’ll be backing up periodically to dreamwidth from LJ.

If you want to move to dreamwidth from LJ, DW’s support page has tutorials on how to do everything from importing to claiming your open ID. There’s a tutorial here for how to make your DW look like your LJ and here for viewing comments in whatever format you want.

The Sinful Desire Archive is evaluating the process of moving the site to AO3. To do this they need two things:
(a) 1-2 members to help coordinate the migration and
(b) volunteers to help migrate the stories through a semi-automated process.

Please email mdawn6 @ yahoo.com if you are interested.

The migration process will take some time depending on how many volunteers they are able to get. Once the migration begins, the site will be frozen and no new stories will be added. Currently Sinful Desire has been renewed through March 2016. If the site goes offline before the migration is complete, they will still be able to compelte the migration if there is enough interest and volunteers.

If no one volunteers to coordinate the migration, then the site will not be migrated. Archive migration is driven by community interest.

Something is wrong in the formatting of someones post or the theme is messed up. If your post ends up being deleted because of this I'll send you a PM to let you know and you can repost it if you want. Sorry for the trouble.

update: I don't know whether it was a post or not that the formatting messed things up. It seems to start at the 4th post down and then messes up white boxes that the post text ends up in and without deleting every post as I go there's no way to find out. Anyway, I changed the number of entries you can see and by trial and error it works, now when you veiw the Comm you'll only see 6 entries at a time instead of 50.

Heads up to these users: [livejournal.com profile] darkmelon, [livejournal.com profile] green_foxfire, [livejournal.com profile] bound_amalthea, [livejournal.com profile] ereynolds74, [livejournal.com profile] rivkat7, your posts ended up being the ones that were deleted. I sent you all a PM letting you know also. So sorry for the inconvenience.


update #2: Figured out which post it was and deleted it, everything should be back to the way it was before this.

Hello, SPN-ers!

The new preference: any characters / all pairings tag has been added!

*throws confetti* 

When using this tag you must:

• Welcome all characters and all pairings. 
• Must not exclude any characters and pairing as a side-note.

For example:

• If a poster sends a submission for happy, au reccs with any and all characters/pairings. All pairings are welcomed. - This post would be accepted if they used the "preference: all characters / any pairing" tag along with all other relevant tags.

• If a user posted the same message as above with the exception of dean/jo or Sam/Cas, this submission would be rejected because the user is not welcoming all pairings. 

*The same thing would happen if they exclude a specific character as well.


This tag is not meant to be a substitute for properly tagging characters and/or pairings if your submission requires it.

• If you submit a post searching for a specific J2 fic and you use the preference tag instead of the pairing: jared/jensen tag along with all other relevant tags your post will be rejected.

• If you submit a post looking for hurt castiel recommendations and you use the preference tag instead of the character tag along with all relevant tags your post will be rejected.

You must abide by the "characters and/or pairing tags" rule in these instances.

Now let's say you submit a post that is searching for a specific character fic as well as an au all pairing recc; you would then use the character tag and the preference tag.

All post must be tagged no matter what. Please tag to the best of your ability, while still following the comm's guidelines.

If you are having doubts on what tags to use or if you need clarification on a rule before you post, please don't hesitate to a pm a mod and we will be more than happy to provide assistance!


We thank all members, watchers and supporters for keeping the comm going and growing all these years!


Thank you,

SPNStoryfinders Mods

Hello, Fanfiction Enthusiasts!

We are in need of your input regarding the idea of adding a new tag, specifically a tag for posters looking for fic recommendations, but do not have a preference on characters or pairings.

This new tag recommendation was suggested by a fellow community member looking to post, but felt like the tagging rules overlooked the "any pairing/all characters" poster and made it difficult for members to abide by community rules, specifically:

• Must have character and/or pairing tag
• No over tagging
• Tag what you insist on

This new tag would help posters abide by the above mentioned rules and submissions will no longer be rejected.

The only stipulation would be that posters must state they accept all pairings and characters and must not exclude any as a side-note. For example:

• If a poster sends a submission for happy fic, set in the au S7 with any and all characters/pairings. All pairings are welcomed. - This post would be accepted if they used the "no preference" tag.

• If a user posted the same message as above with the exception of dean/jo or Sam/Cas, this submission would be rejected because the user is not welcoming all pairings. 

*The same thing would happen if they exclude a specific character as well.


So what do you think? Take the poll and let us know!

Here is a list of (sometimes) frequently searched deleted authors/journals/stories. The list is alphabetical (by authors name) for convenience and broken up into two sections. "Deleted/Purged Journals" and "Deleted stories (authors still active)". I've linked the searches (not all of them), most of the time someone will have the story and is willing to share it in the comments or there is a download link. There are others where the author doesn't want their work shared. If the author changed their names I've listed that too. There are a couple that turned up nothing.

This is an easy 'to go to' list for the comm and will be located in the sidebar, any new posts requesting anything here will be denied.

Let me know if I missed anything or if something should be added, will be updated regularly. Comments are screened.

To search through this for a specific person you can press ctrl+f (cmd+f on Mac) on your keyboard and start typing the authors name and it will pop down to that spot.


Author does not want stories shared
PDF dowloads available
Authors (or if you know the author) if you don't want your stories shared please let me know.

05 February 2014 @ 10:31 am
The Deleted List has been updated and is now too large to keep in one post. I've separated the posts into the two categories: "Deleted/Purged Journals" and "Deleted stories (authors still active)"

If any of you know a way around LJ's post limit or a better way to keep it all in one place, I'm open to suggestions.

The Deleted authors/journals/stories List has been updated. It hasn't been updated since October, sorry for that.

Also, for those of you asking for a deleted story to be shared and including your email addy in your request, it would be much simpler to just ask for the story to be shared. Other people most likely want it too.

And for the people that respond to requests for a story to be shared please just post a download link instead of offering to share it via email. This cuts down on comments and makes it easier for everyone who wants the story. I can and will upload it to my own mediafire account and host it and add it to the Deleted List.


Also for those who want to make their own PDF's (or are just asking for PDF's) and don't know how, I made a tutorial here a while back. Also there is a plugin called Fanfictiondownloader for Calibre that allows you to download stories from many different site (LJ not included) in any format you could ever want. See more info here.


Any questions, feel free to ask.

A link to this post will be added to the Sticky Post.

LiveJournal is currently up, but you may encounter some problems while attempting to use the service. Specifically, some pages may load slowly, the site may not respond when trying to login, and attempting to post entries or comments may result in intermittent errors. For people using certain Interet Service Providers (ISPs), LiveJournal is completely unavailable. You can read more here.


I've notice when trying to approve entries it takes like a minute or so. Please be patient with us and LJ, and if Frank eats your posts or comments just resubmit it.

We recently had a request asking for stories concerning slash pairings specifically involving Colin Ford.

As mods we discussed if we should all this or not and how this request could pertain to other underage SPN actors as well. We've come to the decision that we will not allow any requests to be made regarding any pairings involved with Colin or any underage Supernatural actor  for that matter, regarding stories that are "sexually explicit" and/or mention any "kinks" of that nature. 

Now with that being said, we will still accept post concerning Colin and other underage SPN actors, but any requests involving the aforementioned of any kind will be rejected.

There are several reasons why we've come to this decision. The main and most important reason is that they are not adults, but minors and minors should not have a place in a fanfiction forum in regards to above mentioned situations or any of that nature for the matter. Therefore, any submissions that deal with the previously mentioned will not be accepted.

Whether or not you agree with this, we hope you can respect our decision to ensure this comm continues to be tolerant and welcoming as it can to all members, but still safeguards the comm's integrity.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Your Mods.

Just a friendly reminder about posting requests about Season 8. Just remember to use livejournal cuts or even spoiler code when posting about Season 8. Just to be courteous to those who have not seen the season. Though I won't worry about this, you all do wonderful with spoilers when posting.

Though, there has been just one incident of spoilers being posted in the comments and some getting spoiled. While discussion about the season is great, we encourage you to do that in your own journals, but if you do post somewhat spoilery things in the comments please use spoiler code! If you see spoilery comments, feel free to pm one of us and we will screen the comment and or pm the op to give them the chance to edit their comment (if no one has commented to it yet) 



1

Here is the code itself, remember your tab has to be on HTML for this to work!

<table bgcolor="grey"><tr><td><font color="grey"> SPOILERS GO HERE</font></td></tr></table>

As you can see, I used spoiler code to insert this into my post, easy huh? Works just like a link would.



Thanks guys!

Also maybe other resource (or something else) posts you guys can think of to put in the sidebar. We have the Rec Comm's and PDF Comms, also the Deleted List.

We recently had a request asking for stories about Thomas, Jared and Gen's son, and also for a Thomas tag.

The other mod's and I discussed if we should allow this or not. We've come to the decision that we will not allow any requests to made asking about Thomas (or West for that matter) and there will be no tags for them either.

There are several reasons why we've come to this decision. First and foremost, he is a child. Second he's not an actor and has never been affiliated with Supernatural. I know some of you will say that we have person tags for people not on Supernatural, but I'll say again that he is not an adult, but a child and I and the mods stand firm on this.

Requests for daddy!Jared (or Misha) are fine. But specifically request stories with their children by name will be rejected.

Whether or not you agree with this, I hope you can respect our decision.

Comments will be screened.

The Deleted authors/journals/stories List has been updated.

I've added download links to some pdf's that were readily available. Searching through a post with over 200 comments for someone that is willing to share is kind of overwhelming to some, so I thought this would be easier. I'll update it as stuff comes along.

A gold star () denotes that there are pdf(s) available for download. Link(s) are right there and titled.

A red star () means a definite that the author doesn't want the story/stories shared. If you find there is a download link for an author the you know for sure doesn't want their stories shared, please let me know and I will remove the link.

Enjoy!

Hey guys, I just wanted to point out a new tag of ours.

attribute: alpha/omega/beta tag. If you're searching for werewolf fics involving any sort of alpha/omega/beta use this tag. If you're searching for just plain werewolf fics with nothing relating to alpha/omega/beta that use the creature: werewolf

This is to better classify the werewolf genre and make it easier to browse and search for what you want when it comes to werewolf's in general. The tag is currently being back tagged. If you are confused with this feel free to comment! Thanks.

I don't think it would hurt for a little reminder of tagging or really what to tag for.

We don't want over tagging for the sheer reason it can A) Clog up tags that aren't necessarily related to the request and B) A long stream of tags can really mess with people's friends pages when they view them.

So what we generally ask is tag for what you INSIST on not what you are ok with. So, if you have a general search for some Jared/Jensen cowboy stories. And you INSIST on the pairing of Jared/Jensen and nothing else. Then tag that, if you're ok with whoever bottoms, if one is the cowboy and not the other or you're ok with short stories or long ones. State that in your request but don't tag it as such, because if you state ahead of time what you are ok with then people will know.

Think of it this way. If you go searching through the warning: abused!dean (emotional) and you click on a post that has it tagged but then you notice the comments the post received or the post itself has nothing specifically to do with the tag, you'd be kind of bummed out. Because it was something the poster was ok with but not a requirement for their inquiries.

So you see trying to follow this line of thought when tagging better improves the organization of the tags themselves and better help you find what you're looking for.

If you are confused with this feel free to leave a comment and I can better explain it to you.

If you need help with general tagging please refer to our Sticky Post to help you. If you still need help or are confused with anything having to do with tagging please feel free to PM one of the mods (Which can be found on the sticky post) and we will all do our best to help you.

Just a reminder, PLEASE go back and mark your entries as "FOUND" when you've found the story you were looking for. I'm having to remind alot of folks about this, and it's starting to get a little out of hand. If you don't know how to edit your entries, please feel free to contact one of your friendly mods (we're all listed here in the Sticky Post and on the Profile), and we'll help you out.

Thanks for using your cooperation, and happy fic-hunting.

Hello all, I just wanted to remind you that all of Season 7 is still considered spoilery. So if you are making a post looking for stories/tags or anything in general involving Season 7 please remember to put it under an LJ Cut for the people who haven't seen Season 7 and don't want to be spoiled.

If you don't know how to use LJ Cut's please check out this post HERE to guide you. If you are still having trouble feel free to PM personally and I will do my best to explain it to you.

Thank you.

Just some reiteration of some the Sticky Post tagging rules.

Please don't just use one tag and submit your request if you're asking for multiple specific things. Tag for everything you're specifically asking for. Ex: If you're asking for kidnapped Dean fics and Jared college fics, don't just tagged for "college". Tag for Jared, Dean, and kidnapping (possibly hurt!dean) also.

Character/pairing and/or person tags are required for every post.

If you're looking for a specific fic use the "specific fic" tag.

If your request was found, edit your post to say so. Fastest way, use the "status: found" tag.


One more thing, after your post is approved look to see if any tags were added or removed by a mod, if they were take note, use it as a suggestion for how to tag in the future.
