Clarification on Bullying, Personal Attacks, and Harrassment

We've gotten questions and comments throughout the past few years around when exactly people will face consequences for offsite conflict and how we define personal attacks, bullying, and harassment. Since we're updating the rules to clarify a few other things, we wanted to write a blog post expanding on how the site defines these terms a little as well. We don't take involving the site in offsite conflicts lightly. Expecting people to follow our site rules any time they interact with anothe

Rager of the Decade Wrap-Up

There’s glitter all over the ground in the clearing, and some of the centaurs wander aimlessly, carrying their horseshoes in their human hands, clearly having not slept a wink. The rager of the decade has ended, and a new decade has dawned. But wait! Before you go, there are still a few things worth celebrating. 🥳 Over the course of the month, a whopping total of 769 gifts were exchanged in a total of 46 different wishlists. And while this wasn’t a House Cup competition, we love a good

Personal Social Media Clarification

FanficTalk staff often use social media to promote or supplement activities that take place on the site (i.e., the archives or forums). All information necessary to fully participate in those activities can be found on either the site itself or our official social media accounts; it will not originate on any member's personal account. Many members of FFT (including staff and prefects) do choose to interact outside the site, particularly through their personal social media accounts. While so

Clarification on "Safe Space"

We've gotten some questions lately about what we mean when we say that we want our site (including both our forums and our archive) to be inclusive/a safe space, so we'd like to offer a little clarification. When we say that we want to be a safe space, we mean that we want FFT to be a place where people can participate without being afraid that they will be attacked for who they are - especially if they belong to groups who are often attacked, invalidated, or even have their physical safety
