    This is sad

    More or less. Unfortunately some snapshots are a bit older than others so more recent additions might not be in there, even in the
    K-->T category. It aint perfect, but its a start, assuming Halt ends up rebuilding the whole thing, and that enembee is not playing around (I'm new, so I cant really tell, but it does seem a bit too petty for him).

    Sheesh, what a mess. This c2 really was a collection of some of the best fics out there.

    Thanks to everyone trying to get all the stories restored!

    The requirements are >4.5 stars, featured authors (to be suggested and discussed in this thread), and contest winners, as it were. Link to browse: Click.

    This thread remains the place for everything FF.net, story and C2 related. It is not a mirror of the other thread. If we see the same discussion in here, we will kick you.

    Erm, not sure if it's just me - I'm getting a 404.

    And I suppose as a suggested criterion: Perhaps Pink Prestige = featured author for the c2. Or a specific post count, instead, in the style of the new prestige rules.

    @Blorcyn: The problem is that it redirects on mobile. I'm not even sure you can join C2s on mobile. So, will have to use a desktop. If I find a mobile link, I'll add it. Sorry.

    For what it's worth, I don't think you can unfollow C2s on mobile either. I've been looking but haven't been able to find the option. I turned off my alerts instead, when the shitstorm happened.

    Subscribed.

    Why does it show zero followers? Or does it just take a while to update?

    FF.net takes forever to update, this was why we didn't have it up the same night he nuked it - it took a while to be sure our changes to the image/etc all actually worked.

    I'm not sure, but I faintly recall there was something about checking into the host's FF.net account and looking at the C2 managing page(?), thus forcing a stats update(?). Anyone knows what I'm talking about?

    Just checked. The C2 has 136 followers. It Shows up on page 8. This actually makes me kind of mad. Guess it's not getting to the first page in a while.

    Meh. Being the highest was just a status symbol. The usefulness of the new one is the same.

    Utility goes beyond simply having a list of fics in one place, else the library would be fine on its own. The C2 as before brought traffic, prestige, name recognition. It would give a lot of exposure to authors who were newly added, and served as a point of pride.

    While being in the library is still worthwhile, let's not pretend that the loss of the platform of the largest c2 on ff.net isn't a blow.

    Yeah and it took several years of effort and commitment from others to help get it where it was. The same can be done again, just takes time. We didn't reach number one over night or in a week.

    Just need to hammer it like we did before.
