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: http://absolutechaos.net/fictalk/index.php?topic=64.0

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:
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.

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

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.

Absolute Chaos is going to be putting on their very own fanfic awards, and we need help from you!
I am taking applications for judges, to be responsible for reading, grading, and choosing fics to be winners in our very first awards!
Note: Judges will NOT be judging categories in which they may be nominated, will NOT get to choose what genres/categories they judge, though I will keep in mind what you read and try to accomodate (awards are open to all fics/all fandoms), MUST be willing to be fair, honest, keep to rules, and keep to deadlines set by the ringleaders..e r..Mods (will be annoyed by me on a regular basis).
If you feel that you have all of those qualities, then please fill out the following form and email it to:
firstname.lastname@example.org, Re: Judges!
Name: (Please list your name or nickname, and your AC/board usernames)
Preferred method of contact: (email? through the board? through AC? msn?)
-writers on AC:
Have you ever judged an awards before?:
What will make you a good judge?:
What is your availability like?: (We need to know people will see this through.)
I hope that many of you are interested, and I'm sure it will be great fun, but keep in mind that if we do get many applications we may not need everyone! I will let you all know on October 7, 2007 via the AC Discussion Boards who our judges are!

Until then, I've created what I *think* should work on those computers having problems. I will try to create a "light background" version of it as well, but for right now, the FireDark skin I think should work for those who are having problems with the other skins. (FireLight should now mostly work--though it still has a few more quirks than FireDark does...)
Please comment here if you are having problems with that skin--and let me know what the problems are: I admit I was in a bit of a rush and didn't test everything, so may have missed some things. I'll correct them as soon as possible. Thanks!
(The reviews page should be fixed for both these skins; let me know if you're still having issues with that...)

(If it gives you an error when you first log in, it seems to work after refreshing the page or hitting one of the links. Am still working on that glitch...)
