August Story of the Month
Since we're running Awesome August this month, we've decided to forgo the Story of the Month, and instead, we'll feature all of the stories added to the challenge. We'll post newly posted challenge entries under the 'Featured' section of the site. As more authors post, more stories will be listed and we'll be sure to alternate them. If you read a story, please be sure to leave the author some feedback. Even a simple 'great job!' will make an author's day. :D
Awesome August IS HERE!
AWESOME AUGUST has begun and our first few days are ON and POPPIN'. Check out the challenge here (http://nsync-fiction.com/archive/modules/challenges/challenges.php?chalid=61) and get your READ& REVIEW on!

We heard you!
So a short while ago we asked you to participate in having your voice heard by filling out a quick survey for us. First of all, thank YOU to everyone who answered, we were really surprised at how many responses we actually got. Second, it was great to be able to get a feel for what everyone likes and would like to see for our site.
We just wanted to let you all know that we heard you! You let us know that Secret Santa was your favorite overall Challenge and that you all for sure want the Fan Fiction Awards to return this year.
We heard that you would like to see the website updated a little, have it be more modern looking and you’re right! We’re going to work on seeing what we can do about that (and if you love our site, are gifted in web design and are willing to work for free...holla!).
Also, we got a really good suggestions about having some type of ‘like button’ available for people to click on in addition to being able to leave a review. We did it! You should now be able to click on Like/Dislike after you read a chapter (but don’t forget authors like reviews too!) Hopefully everyone can play nice and we can get more feedback to our authors! Side note: We also have the option to do a star rating system from 1-5, let us know if you’d like that better.
We’ve heard that some of you used to post stories but got discouraged by the lack of response from readers, so we want to try and help that so that we can have people posting again! We also heard from that some of you have thought about posting stories but don’t know how. The mechanics of it are quite simple (and instructions can be found on the site) but we will be updating our Beta list soon so that if you’re looking for another pair of eyes to read your stuff before posting you’ll be able to find contact info for them there.
We also heard that you want more Joey/Chris stories, so we’re setting up a challenge and will get back to you about that soon!
As always we love to hear from you at any time and you can reach us on Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook.
We Need Your Opinion!
As we’ve recently noticed that our read counts and follows have blown up (woot!) but that participation in challenges and reader reviews have been dropping (boo!), we decided that it was time to check in with you all. We’ve created a poll for you to fill out (pleeeease!)so that you can let us know what you like, what you don’t like and maybe what you’d like to see more!
Please take a minute (it’s short!) to fill out the poll by accessing this link so that we can keep our site the best it can be!

Hello Authors and Readers,
We are so excited at the already HUGE response to the Season 9 Awards voting. That said, something has been brought to the attention of the admins that needs to be addressed. There are several stories nominated in various categories that haven't been posted or updated within the past year. The purpose of the Awards every year is to celebrate the awesome stories posted specifically within the past year, and to bring attention to the authors who are currently active on the Archive. With that in mind, we have made the decision remove older stories out of the regular categories, and place them into a special category. If a story was not posted or has not been updated between February 2015 and the present, it is not eligible for a regular Season 9 Award.
However, for those stories that are older and already being voted on, we're moving them into a special category called the Legacy Award. The award will be given to the story with the most votes that either was posted more than a year ago, and/or hasn't been updated in the past year.
We're sorry for the late notice. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know!
