New Server Soon
EDIT: If you are reading this message, it means that you are on the new server of Asian Fanfiction!

Finally, I have switched to a new webhost! It took me less time than expected to move everything.

The company I'm currently hosted with has a very slow server. Some pages on Asian Fanfiction take time to load. T_T I've been quite busy this week in finding a new reliable and affordable webhost (note: I'm a student...). Yes, Asian Fanfiction is going to switch to a new server VERY soon! =D

I will soon send an e-mail to all members to confirm the dates of maintenance.

F.A.Q. updated and Challenges
I updated the F.A.Q. Here are the most recently added questions.

=> What is the difference between drabble, one-shot, short-short, short story, novella and novel?
=> How do I become a beta-reader?
=> I have an original character... should I categorize my story as "Original Fiction"?
=> I have an original character who comes from Japan/Korea/Hong Kong/Taiwan, should I categorize my story as "[Name of country] Entertainment"?

I noticed that nobody uses the Challenges feature. Whether you are a reader or writer, don't be shy to add new challenges for people who suffer from writer's block. ^^

Bug fixed!
For those who have their entire story validated (after having submitted two approved chapters), you previously encountered an error similar to this when you updated your story: A fatal MySQL error was encountered.
(and it goes on)

I've just fixed this bug. You'll not encounter this error again (hopefully). If you ever see another error message similar to this, please report the bug immediately.

Thanks for your cooperation! ^^

Important Accouncement
We would like to thank the people who chose Asian Fanfiction as another option to post and update their stories. Although Asian Fanfiction has been around for a while, not many people have heard of us. There are actually a LOT of silent readers here but few reviews. We understand that reviews are important to writers and hope you can give Asian Fanfiction a chance to get known. Hopefully, the web site will be more active soon (more stories, more readers, more reviews, etc.).

If you are satisfied with our system, you can help us promote by linking Asian Fanfiction on your blog/website or spread the word to your friends.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Important announcement
First off, I would like to apologize for the deletion of some stories. It was necessary because they didn't comply to the current rules. When Asian Fanfiction was launched some months ago, standards weren't the same as now. As said in the Terms of Service, Asian Fanfiction is a moderated archive, meaning that any and all story submissions, including additional chapters to existing stories, will be held in moderation to await the approval of one of our moderators. Your story must respect our rules.

Why is it moderated? Why are there so many rules? Because Asian Fanfiction was created to be an organized archive of good quality stories. I'm not talking about the plot though. After reading quite a lot of fanfics in the past years, I have become SO allergic to bad obvious spelling, grammar & typos, stories in script form with no characterization, etc. That's why I've decided to create an archive of stories that meet a certain standard. I know English is not the native language of everyone (it's not my native language by the way) but there are beta-readers that can help authors. Writers can also use a simple spellchecker (Microsoft Word) which can correct obvious spelling and grammar errors.

Thank you for understanding. I hope I didn't offend anyone.

Thank you for those who posted or reviewed stories here. If you appreciate our system, please spread the words to your friends.
