Anonymous: Not rushing or anything, but just wondering how the progression of the one shot challenge is going? Really excited to find out the winners :)

It’s a working progress but we’re really excited too! :) Like I said, we’re (trying) to go with a one month judging timeframe at this time! Though, it may be extended. But, fear not, it’ll be done!

Anonymous: hi! i sent an email to you guys requesting my pen name (because I forgot) and was wondering how long it would take to respond? thanks x

Our “Forgot Username” section is filled with over 300+ emails. Not only that, but in order to find a lost username the site will have to be down for an undetermined amount of time (every single time) and it’s not fair to our other users. We apologize but it’s unlikely to be done.

I suggest looking through your email for your welcome message. That’s really the best advice I can offer.

Anonymous: I just want to say thank you for making a forum where people can write and read fanfics. I've read some amazing fics and that probably wouldn't be easy to do if it wasn't for the 1dff website. Thank you :)

That’s what we’re here for! 

Anonymous: How long do you guys think it will take to select the winner of the official one shot challenge? There are some really awesome submissions, can't wait to read a few more! xo

We hope to get everything read and scored within a one month time frame :)

Official Writing Challenge!

1dffofficial:

To celebrate OneDirectionFanfiction reaching half a million members we are issuing an official one shot challenge!

Theme:

Stories will be written based off of any song from Up All Night, Take Me Home, or Midnight Memories. They can themed from album titles, song titles, or any lyric…

Remember guys, today is the LAST DAY to post your entry for the writing challenge!
Anonymous: Hi, I posted a 1 shot for the challenge as well, and the story itself was (just) under 4,000 words but once uploaded it said I was over 4,000. Will you be copying & pasting the stories into word docs to make sure they're the proper length? I just don't want to have broken the rules / wasted your time. Thanks!

We will be if we see that it’s listed over 4k words :) I know that the site adds in the summary and everything so don’t worry!

Anonymous: So as soon as the story is at least five chapters one, has an unique plot and good grammar we can recommend it for being featured?

Yup! And less than 200 reviews!

Anonymous: Hi! I have a question about featured stories. Do you take previous suggestions? Or if we want to suggest a story that hasn't been featured yet but we have been emailing about it, should we just keep emailing you guys? or is not featuring it like saying no?

Not featuring is not like saying no because we get quite a few emails! But at the same time, a lot of the stories we get don’t qualify. I’ll say that currently I have only one story in the queue for a feature. So you can email again if you’d like :)

Anonymous: Where do we post our one shot we want to enter in the big one shot challenge you guys are doing? It hasn't expired right??

Anonymous: Is there a list of all the fics that have won awards in the past? If so, where can I find it?

There is :) you can check out our awards tag! 1dffofficial.tumblr.com/tagged/awards

Anonymous: Is there an official tumblr for just the ProBoards, or is this Tumblr for both the FanFic site and the Boards?

Nope, we are one! Both site and boards.

Anonymous: When posting for the official writing challenge, do we just post it on the site on the page, or do we have to notify you once it's up? Sorry if this seems like a dumb question! Lol

Not a dumb question! We’ll be able to see all the entries on the site so no need to notify us :) Just make sure you add it to the “Official One-Shot Contest” challenge.

Anonymous: How do you guys deal with all the drama?

We generally just stay out of everything. Most of the time, the blunt of any “displeasure” involving the site will be directed toward us and that’s completely fine. We’re big girls, we can handle it :) After doing this for 3+ years I’ve come to understand that no matter much I try and explain or argue something, it is pointless when another party has already set their mind to something. As for any personal accounts we may have, I can’t speak for this. As I always say on my twitter account “my views do not represent 1DFF as a whole!” 

However, if there is a member who feels like they’re being targeted then we will intervene. We do not tolerate that in any way.
