Anonymous Reviewers

To those of you who DO NOT have accounts:

You will now have to sign up in order to leave reviews. You can still read without being a member, but it's nice to leave reviews so please take 30 seconds out of your day to sign up! It doesn't mean you have to write!

Eliminating anonymous reviews will cut down on spambots getting onto the site and leaving porn spam all over stories, as well as reducing anonymous flaming. 

Anything you say you should be able to put your name on! 

Like I said, it only takes a couple of seconds and then you'll actually be part of the community!

Getting tired of banners...

If you want to be able to put up banners in your summary, READ THE RULES!

It's not that hard to limit your banners to 600 pixels, yet people who have been posting here for years are still oblivious if not ignorant to the pixel limit. 

Make sure you are familiar with all the rules before you post. It's getting really tiring spending all of my time on the site measuring banners. 

I will remind of you all of the rule addition posted in JANUARY.

Lately people have not  been following the rules sooo....The first time you do it, we'll delete the banner and it will say *mod edit due to banner size.* The next time you do it, we'll delete the entire story. That means reviews and all!

You've been warned a thousand times now!

I'm sure many of you have noticed... we've started an archive of some older/hard to find fics here on the site. Many of them can no longer be found on websites, and many other archives have also disappeared.

Hopefully we'll be able to make a collection of favourites for everyone to come back and enjoy! If you have any suggestions for what you might like to see let us know!

Banner Makers...
Hey ya'll. I've been intending for a long time to create a few new skins for the site (and probably retire some of the older ones). I've learned, though, that I'm not all that great at creating banner/graphics. I'm looking for a person or two who might want to create new banners for the site (perhaps for a Backstreet skin or two; other fandoms or designs more than welcome as well!) If any of you are interested, please Contact Me.

Bug Reports
The site upgrade *seems* to be working for the most part. There is a known issue where co-authors are not able to respond to reviews; I'm working on it, but not sure how to fix it yet...

If you encounter any other "bugs" please comment here and I'll fix them as soon as possible.

Thanks! --Chaos

The Great Banner crack down of 08

I am cracking down on these banners again. Please read the rules for posting a picture to go along with your story. I'm really being a stickler now and if it comes to more than the 600 pixels even if it's 601, i'm removing it. Sorry to be so harsh but i'm tired of having to go through these banners everyday and I feel like people are now just trying to skirt the rules by adding on here and there.

Also please don't make your summary the length of a story. Short, sweet and to the point.

Here are the rules:

Just a reminder that flaming stories is something not tolerated on AC. It's okay to give some constructive criticism for a review but there's no need to be rude to anyone!

I'm not exactly sure how some people can sleep knowing that they are taking credit for other people's hard work, but alas it happens and when it does on this site we do not take it lightly. Yesterday it was brought to my attention that the story Cheap Thrills was really an Nsync story called Somewhere in the Middle and that this girl was posting it on the site and taking all the credit for it. The story was deleted and her account locked.

This same girl also posted a story called The Walk which once again is someone else's Nsync story. She is actually even trying to repost it today even as we speak with the name One Night With You. It's even on the Most Recent stories list.

If you happen to see these two stories posted ANYWHERE as BSB stories please be aware that they aren't. They are being plagerized and you should contact the moderator of whatever site you see them on.

here are the links to the original stories

Somewhere in the Middle:

The Walk

As for you jizzlegirl consider yourself deleted!

If you use or want to put banners on your summary page go to this link about posting banners on the site. Rules have been added.

Scrooge McDuck saying....

Please take a minute and review the rules about banners. They are once again getting too big and it's kind of annoying to always have to go delete them which I just did to a few. We don't want to say no to banners altogether (Well actually i'm lying I would love that in all honesty lol) but if the banners continue to go all ginormous on us, we'll have to do that.

Sorry to be a Scrooge but hey, someone has to be, right? lmao

Adding Stories as Favourites

A lot of people seem to be having trouble with the favourites feature. With the new system, here is how you add a story or author to your favourites.

When you click on add to favourites it brings you to a new page where you are able to add personalized comments about what you're adding, from there you must hit "submit" for your favourite to be saved. Clicking add to favourites only will NOT add it! "Submit" has to be clicked!

I hope this helps those of you who are struggling with this feature.
