POST RECYCLED IN JUN 2008:Click the images below to magnify them.3. Check if you can log in your fanfic account.
Do this after following the instructions in PK's validation email.
NOTE: At this point, you can't upload stories yet.
3-a. Log in the fanfic side. Enter your username, password, then hit Go.
3-b. Check that the screen now states Logged in
beside your username. Presently, this shows up on the top right of the screen.
After you've logged in as can be seen in step 3-b, then you can leave "signed" reviews. That is, your review will show up in your control panel's User Panel > Review History
, and you'll also get emailed copies of any replies the authors make to your review.
EDIT JUL 24 2008:What's the difference between logging in the fanfiction control panel and in the "New/Updated" page or a story's reviews page?
You log in the fanfiction control panel to:
-- edit your fanfic account info and settings
(password, bio, email addy, bday, password, etc).
-- upload and edit stories, if you've been given author permissions.
You can edit the story's properties such as story title, chapter title and content, fic summary, rating, genre and completion status. Or you can edit your chapters without deleting their reviews.
You log in the New/Update page or the Reviews page to:
-- view the contact info on the profile page of another registered user;
-- leave signed reviews to other author's stories. Some benefits:
------ you earn Portkey points, which allow you to get email alerts of new stories or chapters;
------ you get emailed copies of the author's replies to your reviews;
------ your reviews are linked in the Review History item of your fanfic control panel. You can use this to trace some Portkey stories you've read before but have lost track of.
-- if you're a Portkey author, you can reply to reviews to stories you've uploaded here;
Please refer to the FAQs list
for more detailed procedures and explanations of the above.
