Oh okay. To remove items from your "Favorite Stories" list;

1. Go to users.portkey.org, then click "Favorites --> Stories" on the top left menu.

2. Check the "Remove" box beside the story you want taken off.

3. Hit Submit.

Can you post back here to let us know how it worked out? Thanks.

What are portkey points? How are they applied? The other day I had 31, and now I only have 29. Why is that?

Hi! Call me Nadja. :)




Portkey points are kinda credits you need to get chapter alerts.
You get 1 to 4 points per review, depending on the length of the review. For every chapter alert you get you pay two points.
So if you had 31yesterday and only have 29 today, I'd say you got a chapter alert overnight.

I hope that helps you in any way.

Hi! Call me Jen. :)




How can authors know if they or their stories have been added to readers' Favorites lists?


I haven't been able to find anything on this subject yet, so I figured I'd post it (since I seem to find the answer shortly there after).

From an author's perspective, is there a way to see if people have added you to any lists, such as favorite author's, chapter alerts, favorite story, or any other lists that may be out there? I know that when you view a persons profile you can see their favorite authors & stories, but how does the author know if they're on such lists w/o scanning member profiles?

thanks!

Umm . . . I don't know of any way to list all the members who've selected a certain favorite story or favorite author. I'm not definitively saying there isn't, but I don't remember anything like that. Anybody else? blush.gif

Sorry,

That's cool.

Is there a way to stop getting chapter alerts for authors you've added to your own favorites w/o removing the authors or the stories from your favorites lists?


*has found this thread in the old Administration forum*

I don't think there's a way to do that. What I can suggest is to use your email program's filter to put chapter alerts about specific stories or authors into certain folders, like Trash if you don't want to read them (the alerts, not the stories).

There's also an alternative here.

I'm new around this side of Portkey, but I've been reading the fanfiction for a while. I have posted some reviews to stories, clicked on the "add chapter alert" box, typed in my email address, submitted my review...and don't get any chapter alerts. I know the stories have been updated. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for the help! Portkey is a safehaven for Harmonians!

Can anyone explain Portkey Points to me?? I have a lot of them from reviews, but I have no clue what they're for. Can anyone give me an answer?

I'm not a moderator here, but as I understand the system, you earn Portkey Points by leaving reviews for fics. You get 2, 3 or 4 points depending on how long your review is; I think the minimum review has to be at least 10 words. But if you write a 300-word review, you still get only 4 points.

Now, what do you do with these Portkey Points? Say you are enjoying a particular fanfiction and want to know when it's been updated without having to look at the Portkey website. When you're signed in and reading that fic, look at the review area at the bottom of the chapter. Below the review box are a couple of drop-down menus with several choices. Click on the menus, find the appropriate choice and voila', you'll get an email alert when that fic is updated. That email notice will say that you have "used Portkey points" to get the email notice.

Does that help? biggrin.gif
