Trollfiction Crisis:

The Darkest Timeline
Dear TV Tropes Users,

It has come to my attention that a travesty so heinous, so vile and so unforgivable has begun that I have returned as a forumgoer to bring this to your collective attention. In the recent wave of Fanfiction deletions and bans, a number of trollfics have been removed from the site, and more are being taken down every day. While this may be great for the website, it is destroying a historical element of the community, and consequently wiping some of the literature off the face of the internet. Due to fanfiction's "no archive bots" rule, the complete works of Hans von Hozel are already gone. Please grab what you can for the sake of the internet.

I always feared the day I wouldn't be able to read about Goku danubing across Germany to fight Hitler, and that day has finally come.

If HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH gets removed from the web, I am going to murder someone. Hard.
Caaan anybody find me... Somebody to ♠

Remember, if you've got something you want to save, you can use fanfictiondownloader.appspot.com to save them as epub or html files for archiving.

EDIT: Removed potentially dangerous link. Please use the appspot address, not the .net one.

Or you could go to where the fic is, and hit File -> Save As... and do it that way for each chapter.

Just sayin'.

Best off using the appspot site — fanfictiondownloader.net is setting off Site Advisor's red flags like crazy.

Well, I guess trollfics can be considered a Sturgeon trope and that ff dot net wants to remove the trollfics that are grammar-spelling poor, so I fear for Half Life: Full Life Consequences, but I think that Thirth HS is safe from deletion.
My work is here. Current main fic: Tengen Toppa Gurren Solvernia

Perhaps petition FF.net to restore the fics? I would hope they would respond to a large user outcry...

It Seems we Have a Disagreement
FF.Net, answering to popular demands? AH HA HA HA HA, good one!
Haters gonna hate, apologists gonna make apologies up.

the only way to stop Fanfiction.net is to stop using Fanfiction.net. Archive of Our Own is an alright site; it has a fair few fics under its belt, and it's only getting bigger. Plus, smut rating ^-^

Therefore, a boycott is in order. So long as it actually encompasses more than just us tropers.

Who you are does not matter.
Assumption: even all the tropers actually care. They've had a rule about "at least attempt spelling and grammar" since I was in high school about a decade ago, the fact they're enforcing it now doesn't really bother me.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
