There once was a FictionPress user who was not satisfied with the attention the website was getting from its creator and administrators. Severely upset by the lack of maintenance of the website, this user pulled out a fresh piece of paper and began madly scribbling down questions they wanted to ask the website administrators. The questions were something like this…
May 8, 2009
Question 1: Why is it that despite my daily regimen of emails calling for help in the FictionPress site fails to grasp your attention?
Question 2: Are you aware of the 403 error that has been brought up oh, so many times?
Question 3: Do these emails to support go straight to the trash bin of your email account?
Question 4: If they do go to the trash bin, then why have a support email address in the first place? Is it for looks? (Ok, that was 2 questions lumped into 1; sorry.)
Question 5: Why does get all the lovely updates, yet is completely abandoned to changes?
Question 6: If Fanfiction and Fictionpress are sister sites using exactly the same programming code, why is it that the changes made to FanFiction can't be translated to FictionPress via insta-load?
Question 7: Do the administrators even care about FictionPress anymore?
Question 8: I may be biased, but aren't the original works of the FictionPress users a bit better than the Fanfiction users if only for the reason we have original characters and stories?
Question 9: Why is FictionPress being abandoned?
Question 10: FictionPress was abandoned a little over a year ago and it's really prospering; so why is FictionPress being abandoned once again?
Question 11: May I have the real email address to support for FictionPress? This one doesn't seem to be working that well.
Question 12: What will it take for you to fix FictionPress?
Question 13: When will FictionPress ever be on par with FanFiction?
Question 14: If FictionPress is such a hassle, why not allow someone else to take over?
Question 15: Is FictionPress being managed by anyone?
Question 16: When will the 403 Error get fixed? It's extremely annoying, mind you.
Question 17: Are you reading this email?
Question 18: What about that post-eating pet of yours - has it been fed? It doesn't seem like it.
Question 19: When can I stop worrying about my avatar disappearing? I really do miss the face of Lime-Cat every day...
Question 20: How many emails will it take for you to fix all the stuff on FictionPress and FINALLY bring it up to par with FanFiction like you promised at the beginning of 2008?
Question 21: What is your New Year's Resolution for 2009?
Question 22: Was your New Year's Resolution for 2009 "I will make FanFiction better and leave FictionPress to rot"?
Question 23: What is your New Year's Resolution for 2010 and 2011? Is it the same as I predicted for 2009? (Sorry, that was 2 questions again...)
Question 24: When will FictionPress get fixed?
Question 25: Do the administrators even care about FictionPress anymore?
Question 26: Are you aware of the 403 error that has been brought up oh, so many times?
Question 27: How many emails have you gotten about the problems of FictionPress?
Question 28: How many questions will it take for you to fix FictionPress?
Question 29: I really am running out of questions here, so I'll recyle another one: When will FictionPress ever be on par with FanFiction?
Question 30: Can I write a story with the list of qualms I have about FictionPress's subpar services?
Question 31: Can I post said story legally? I don't see why not because I would be the author and well, there's no rule in the TOS about drafting up a constitution against FictionPress...is there?
Question 32: WHEN WILL FICTIONPRESS GET FIXED?
Question 33: When can I stop bothering you to fix FictionPress?
Question 34: When can I stop pestering you to fix FictionPress?
Question 35: When am I allowed to stop emailing you about the problems of FictionPress?
Question 36: When can I finally stop annoying you about the extremely (that's an understatement) vast gap between FictionPress and FanFiction?
Question 37: WHEN WILL FICTIONPRESS GET FIXED?
Question 38: When will FictionPress be on par with FanFiction?
Question 39: When will the 403 Error get fixed?
Question 40: When can I legally access public files on FictionPress without getting a "403 Forbidden Error"?
Question 41: Why is it that after I sent an email to support that a new "502 Error" showed up?
Question 42: Does the "502 Error" signify you are doing something to fix FictionPress?
Question 43: Is the "502 Error" a sign indicating FictionPress will finally get another update since March 6, 2009 when FanFiction is getting regular, healthy updates?
Question 44: Is the FictionPress site struck by the swine flu?
Question 45: Is FictionPress dying?
Every second, the user finds another question to ask. So, the next question is: Will you help contribute to this story by adding your own questions you'd like to have addressed by no one in particular (read administrators)?
This story will be updated daily for the amusement of the FictionPress users and the general public. Should this story be removed for violation of TOS, then so be it – at least I tried to entertain the general public. :) For those who wish to take this story seriously, I have no power to stop you and your perspective. Use this story with caution. For more information concerning these questions (read important people to contact regarding the problems noted), please send me an email – the link is in my profile. :D
That being said, please enjoy!
