Can't Access FanFiction - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

I copy and paste because my main computer is a Mac which doesn't have microsoft office ... I had to pull and completely redo a chapter because it was full of gobbledegook which I CERTAINLY did not write. the gobbledegook was in between the paragraphs of my chapter... more than likely some kind of computer code but my knowledge of that kind of thing is negliglble at best. I pulled the entire chapter and took the junk out. Actually, since the story I was writing was not popular I pulled it. Once I finish when Doves Cry I will finish writing the other story and repost it

@Hokee Bennett

Last one and then I'll go to sleep (6pm now. Hopefully late enough so I won't wake up at 1am again). So I won't most likely find your reply anymore if you do reply in here. Yeah, see you "on the other side" then. ;)

Haha. Figured as much.

It most certainly is. Of course as long as those writing the story are good, the very universe of crime stories is so rich and full of possibilities. More than most other genres. If for no other reason then just look at all those cases the main character(s) work with. So many different stories to tell. And no matter how overdone, the best ones of all: People wanting revenge and having a nemesis etc... Can't forget the whump and being a badass.

It makes me sad to know how so many amazing generation of new writers won't get to share their talents in favor of the less... um... less talented ones. I'm putting it nicely. I can't help but wonder if just like in regular world right now where in this economy it's who you know that gets you the job, that it works the same way in that world as well...

I adore the relationship between the brothers on Numb3rs and in my opinion it didn't have enough of all the things they could've done with the series... Yet still it's (in my opinion) one of the best ones out there... And I actually have one couple I ship really hard, which is rare since I don't do much shipping anymore (bromance > romance, anyday)... And it's neither one of the brothers with their women.

Yeah. And since the made up worlds and lives are so fun, real world and life seem kind of...bland in comparison, if you know what I mean. And I'm saying that as someone whose entire life since birth has been a real life TV/movie drama and soap opera.

Oh, we are all improving and so will you. Believe me, I still have many things I wish to later go back and fix (thankfully mostly typos, but still). I started with short stories and poems as a kid when I thought I hated writing (school made me think that), then for almost ten years I wrote roleplays almost daily. I learned so much from that... Thankfully it also helped weeding out any mary sue characters I might have otherwise started creating... And through that I learned how to make characters that actually are proper characters. I'd never go back to all that now, but it was good experience. Now I use fanfics as another form of teaching tool for myself. Funny how things like these work... Next thing I'd like to try is technical writing, however boring that may be. But it should also be really good learning tool for a writer. Maybe I'll even try finding a job where I can do that or something... We'll see... And weird it is, but somehow things like this happens once in a while.

I kind of blame several people in my life for my "muteness". Already shy child, certain actions from too many people during the years stripped me off of any confidence in actually speaking out or wanting to even bother with that. On the other hand when I get close to someone, I can talk their ears off and at worst talk so fast they can't even follow... XD

Hah. Sure thing. I took a screenshot of that so I'll remember. Anyway. Good night/morning!

Where is the "power outage" rumor coming from? Did it start from someone wih actual knowledge of what's going on at FFN? Or pure speculation?

The only information available to us that I can see says "under maintenance."

FFN's issues have been going on since two weekends ago.

It's just par for the course, really. I've been on FFN long enough that I'm used to it by now. A few years ago there was a similar problem that made it impossible for people to log into their accounts for days. Every once in a while you could log in for an hour or two, or for just a couple minutes at a time, but the log in part was down for about five days if I remember correctly.

@Claudio: Use Editor/Word/LOW or something to write it, save it on your PC and upload it once the site is back up

Any links and actions that eventually lead to your profile is malfunctioning. We just have to wait if you favorited some stories.

Lesson learned: Make sure to always do work on Word, before C&P on the website... I swear, this was just terrible... Been ~27 hours since the outages for me.And I was in the middle of writing 3 fanfics!!

Seriously, though. You guys should probably send us a prompt, through the browsers, or at least type something in that little side box of twitter tweets. The front page of the website was working when the outages happened, after all.

Might as well get cracking on new chapters. If you're a ff writer, this should be a good time to get ahead. I'm also open to looking at other people's fanfics, if ya wanna write them down for me. (Plus I'd be happy if I had viewers read mine and see where I could improve on or such)

What is the basis for saying FFN's issues are a power outage? Pure speculation? This site says FFN is "under maintenance."

I'm Undead Prowess on fanfiction, and I typically write Five Nights at Freddy's, Skylanders, KND, and a few other random fanfictions. I have updates planned after a long period of writers block, and this happens.... ._.

@Kiana: I, too, can code. What exactly do you mean by changing the URL?

Kelvin: Sorry for calling you Kevin, bro :D

I was in hopes the site would be working again by morning. Guess it's still out to lunch.

@Samantha That's what I'm doing is working on my stories right now. Might as well make the most of my time while I can't access the site.

Mecie we clearly want to do more than just view the site and how can you read the stories you have favorited when you can't log in?

@Leo Chris

LOL that does explain a few things! I know ima stop checking for a while, so I can continue writing, reading and uploading. Once the servers come back up, Ill be sure to message you through

Good to know! Im sure ill be busy for the next 5 hours at least. So thank you for letting me know! "Plenty of angst and cuteness and papabear Gibbs..." Just what I want to hear!

I think it has to do with my goldfish like memory! XD That it is! Its the whole chicken dinner! I get that, truly I do! (Im obsessed with Detective Conan, and so is my sister! XD) Im a crime junkie at heart as well. So much can happen in the span of solving that one crime, leaving it indented on your mind and heart for days, weeks, even years. And theres so many out there, Psych, Criminal minds, Glades, Law and Order (all of them, specifically love SVU), etc ya get the point. Its a good genre to start out in!

Iv'e picked up on that trend as well. I guess TV just insn't wanting to deal with that type or route, even tho their own series is darkly themed in a way. But I guess thats the way it has to be, we'd either have to find it in a fanfic, write it ourselves, or just move on and have to deal with it, as they continue to throw more and more amazing characters under the bus, to keep the show from losing views/ratings.

This is true! NCIS, does have alot more than other series. Its actually one of the higher amount in the TV catagory on Yeah once a series ends, it seems the fanfiction fandom kinda dies with it. I can tack on Psych to your Numb3rs, theyre in the same boat. Seems like the only way for it to continue is if I write for it, or random others who are still with the fandom.

I get that train of thought (the creating a world and losing yourself) as I do that as well, but I add on that when its still fresh in my head, I tend to bullet point major events or something that catches my fancy, to flesh it out more later. Aww, it sounds like a nice place to go to to relax for awhile..

Im still in the process of getting better, I havent wrote for a good couple months, and when I did, it was my own OC type thing where it wasnt attached to a previous fandom, so its weird going back to fandom writing. Hopefully I have improved, but I dont really have any newer fics to compare the old ones to, at least not just yet! XD (NCIS one in process now, in fact second chapter is almost done!) That it is! Its so weird to have just randomly bump into someone like this. Ah well, my brain will hopefully get over the shock in a few hours, when I get lost in your stories! :)

Oh wow! I talk all the time in RL, so its kinda hard to talk through text, since I doubt everything I try to say, or write. I think thats why I tend to stay in those genres as well. Lets me escape out of my own mind for awhile to anothers where Im not the one having to deal with it. Ah well, just rambling on now! XD You go catch some shut eye!

If you want to keep talking and whatnot, my penname is Ninjapirate101 (for both AO3 and FF) so when you get spammed with favorites, follows, and reviews, etc dont be alarmed! XD Its only me~
