Fucking Annoyed      58 days ago  # 28 April 2021
It doesn't work on Mobile. I have an older phone, and frankly, I shouldn't have to get a new one just for one damn site to load. It's literally always worked for me until this year, now I keep getting asked to complete some kind of Captcha. Whenever I do and press next, nothing happens. The screen just stays blank, or I can't even get to another screen to complete it. Then at the bottom, there's my IP address and under it there's a blue highlighted word called Cloudflare. Whenever I click on it, I keep coming to a page claiming that there's some kind of 500 error, and that it's a Host Error. So apparently it's something on their end that's not working, but that's obviously not the case. I've checked other "is it down" sites, and most of them say that it's working, there's one that says it's completely down and that they can't connect to the servers. I would really like it if someone figured this shit out. Like I said, the site quit working for me the beginning of this year. It's only mobile where it's not working, and while I can read shit on my computer, I'd rather read on mobile since it looks better and is easier to see the words.

Website has been severely buggy since October 31. New chapters of updated stories cannot be accessed through site unless you use the app. Also, when I update my profile bio, the site soon changes it back to what it looked like as of October 30.

Marijn      486 days ago  # website is not working for me. I checked it out, and it seems that no one is more of a mark than me for getting banned from any site. Hey, as long as I have my website, I'll be fine. Until I get rid of it, though, I can't post any of my stories. Again, thanks so much for making me, and countless others, spend our money to get these works (which to an extent are very good, too, and I mean that in every way!). It has gone down every time I try to upload. Did I get hacked? Should I reboot the site? I don't want to be responsible for leaving posts empty or not receiving a reply. Thanks in advance. Any help would be great. Issues Reports
