    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=15103 [Oneshot] should be changed to [Abandoned] - see https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showpost.php?p=395671&postcount=35 and from reading it is obvious that story is not finished and it is not marked as complete on ff.net.

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=5158 -> maybe for no longer updated collection of oneshots [Oneshot] tag would be better than [Abandoned]? see also https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=284 - active collection of oneshots with [WIP] as status.

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=23441 - first story is marked as completed, sequel ( http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9435619/1/Harry-Potter-and-the-Duties-of-the-King ) is started. It would be nice to include it as the second link, probably without [WIP] -> [Complete] tag change.

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=14151 - why it is closed? There is a download link

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=6571 - download link with archive containing this story: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/92776639/Esama.ZIP

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?p=364941#post364941 download link, accessible without registration - may be a good idea to add it to the first post: http://jeconais.fanficauthors.net/ws/public/epub/523/

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=21660 [WIP] -> [dead link] (author is not responding)

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=291 - it should link to http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1430385/1/Changing-Faces rather than userpage

    https://forums.darklordpotter.net/library_list.php have no FFN link, but FFN link is included in the first post. Probably it is case of too fancy formatting combined with regexp unable to capture all links and it may be nice to fix it (regexp or formatting): https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=5708 https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=23756 https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=20365 and https://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=22894

    I'll deal with the list tonight (in about 10 hours).

    As mostly I am the one to edit older stories and label them as abandoned, complete, etc:

    I label stories as abandoned when they haven't been updated for 12 months.

    If the review thread was about the first story of a series, I label it based on this story, not based on the progress of the series. We have quite a few series, where every story got its own thread (i.e. Shezza's Denarian Series).

    I now labelled it as complete. A series of oneshots is a chaptered work - even though every chapter could stand on its own.

    Rorschacht's "Odd Ideas" actually aren't just oneshots, there are also a few multi-chaptered stories within the collection.

    I labelled it as complete. As stated in my first post: The thread was about the story and that's complete. It's the way I browse our library or fanfiction.net: More often than not I look for complete stories and don't mind if there is a sequel or not. Even though the larger plot might not be finished, the inner ark of the story usually is.

    No. I changed the link to point the index page instead of chapter 1. There people can choose if they want to log in or download the epub file.

    It's still available on Livejournal.

    These are problems for Lord Ravenclaw, better mentioned in the "Library 2.0" thread. I can't allow voting without opening the threads - and that's something I won't do for as long as the authors don't update.

    For deleted stories the status in the post is the last recorded status before the story was deleted.
