Stillborn Serials have a negative effect on free hosting services such as FanFictionDotNet, ComicGenesis, and such. The majority of the entries on any open service are quickly abandoned, resulting in both clogging the lists full of dead entries and consuming otherwise good names in the process.

Somewhere, right now, a person is discovering FanFiction, WebComics, role-playing {{fora}}, or what-have-you and thinking, "Hey, this looks easy! I can write! I can make drawings/[[PixelArtComic pixel art]]/[[SpriteComic sprites]]! I'll do one of these!". They then work on the first chapter/first strip/first motions to get in on the game, sign up with an account for a free service, post said original work, and then promptly forget about it. These are OrphanedSeries and DeadFic taken to an extreme. Sometimes the author found that it wasn't so easy after all and dropped the idea when it turned out to be more work than they expected. Many were just made on a whim and promptly forgotten once the momentary urge wore off.
