I just spent half a night on the final chapter (Not including the upcoming epilogue) on one of my fanfictions. For some reason after I posted it, it didnt pop up in the recent stories section...but when I click on it, the story shows the last chapter is there and what not. Please someone explain this. And if it's a simple explaination that I overlooked feel free to lock or remove this topic after telling me the problem. Much thanks in advance if you guys have the answer! nn

Hmm. Apparently stories don't display the total voting score the way pictures do.

Why does that even matter? Because the mainpage boxes apply two filters to what gets shown: (1) one item per artist, and (2) no items with an overall negative score.

I think we may be looking at #2 here (and this may be an issue since story voting is stored per story, not chapter), but without the ability to check the story's voting score I can't be 100% certain.

Weird....I dont think anyone voted bad on my story; due to the fact it's hardly posted up or updated unlike my other fanfic. And it's not super offensive or anything. O___o

Hmm I'll have a friend vote good on it and see what happens.

It seems that the recent story section on the home page is showing new submitted stories but not stories which have been updated.
I've noticed this because I'm having the same problem aswell, I've been updating my fanfictions fairly regularely but they aren't showing on the homepage. I'm guessing this is a site problem.
Please can this be fixed? Otherwise people aren't going to be able to see updated fanfiction on the site.

I agree with zaron on this, I just updated "To challenge the night" one of my highest viewed fanfictions, and it didnt pop up in the recent stories section either. o.O

If it's one of your highest-viewed then the score filter shouldn't effect it ... hmm, it's possible there's an actual bug here. Let me check the code....

Aha, yes we have a bug here. The Recent Stories are currently selected by their initial submission date, instead of the update-date from their latest chapter. Will definitely need to do something about that....

Nyaha! Pesky elusive bugs, go Orkin Man on that bug Strata; show it whos boss! xP

Good thing we found this bug, considering the fact I was going to add another chap and what not to Lullaby for a stormy night now that I know ten times more about Acheron from the dark hunter novels. Im nearly done with the book and feel like typing up the urge to make him blast Lady Gaga just to piss off Raziel. xD

Yeah...enough ramblings AWAAAAAY -rolls off-

It wasn't a difficult bug to figure out (it was rather obvious when I examined the recent-stories query), but fixing it isn't exactly going to be straightforward since the query also includes a flood-control element.

Ah kinda like the situation with a bomb. You know what it is and the damage it will cause if left untouched; it's just the difficulty of figuring out which wire to cut. =P

xD You have the ultimate metaphor and analogy bank Sarah.

It's been ages since I've been onto Fanart-Central. But I had recently updated one of my fanfictions but it is still not showing on the recent stories section.

I'm guessing the bug hasn't been fixed yet, can this get sorted out?
