L'ecrivez

FYI

If any of you have 1sentence  fics up at Fanfiction.net, make sure you have them backed up somewhere else.  I just received the email below from bot@fanfiction.com.  The story's gone, and so are all the comments people had left for it.  At least I had the story backed up here and elsewhere.  I don't believe that Prismatic is a "non-story," but someone disagrees.  What's most annoying about this is that all the comments are gone, and I can't upload anything "for a few days."

I have no way of knowing whether FF.net admin randomly came across Prismatic and decided it violated their guidelines, or if someone who read it reported it.  If it's the latter, I really wish that person had contacted me personally first; we could have discussed it, or at least I could have saved the feedback people had taken the time to leave.

Lerdo,

Title: "Prismatic"
Summary: "Fifty sentences about Booth and Brennan--together and as
individuals. Now complete."
Rating: "Fiction Rated: T"

Main reason for removal: "Non-story: lists, notes, polls, announcement, and
etc"


The above story has been removed because it violated the guideline detailed
on the upload page.

This infraction has been recorded and as a result, you will not have story
submission ability for a few days.

FanFiction.Net has a set of guidelines for the uploading of stories and
chapters.

ETA:  Fellow FF.net posters, learn from my mistakes.  It might make more sense just to back up ANY stories and comments you have there that you'd actually like to keep.  I always have my writing saved in multiple places, but I admit it didn't even occur to me do a back-up of feedback.  Though now that I think of it, I think I DO have them in my email account.  Regardless, if you have stuff over there (or elsewhere) that you want to keep, SAVE IT!
