    I'm working on 2 fics everyone. Ones a D/L fic told through Aiden's thoughts on what everyone in the lab told her, about the year she was fired. The others a crossover with all 3 CSI, using the title CSI-911: 3 States of Emergency, and I have really big plans for that one. The thing I want to know is, how can I get a beta?

    FF.net has just as many glitches as tv.com does. Just export an older chapter. Go to the document manager like you're going to edit it, copy and paste the new chapter. Then submit it like it's a new document. That's what I do.

    Fi - To get a beta, just ask. I'm sure there are lots of people here who would be willing to beta your fic.

    EDIT: My new fic's up.

    Great story, Sugah.  Made the lack of D/L a little less painful.

    You're not uploading anything. You export them. Exporting is different than uploading.

    Go to the stories tab. Select a story (any story) and hit "edit". Once you're there, go to "content/chapters". Next to each chapter, there are four choices: edit, del (delete), exp (export) and dl (I have no idea, honestly... download?). Click on "exp". That chapter is now in the document manager. Go back to the document manager and select that document. Copy the text from your Word document (or whatever program you use) and paste it into the box. Save your changes. Submit it as a new chapter.

    This will work. It's what I do when I can't upload anything.

    If by some freakish whatever, it still doesn't work (and it should), then to get to tech support, go to the drop-down menu in the top right-hand corner (it will say "menu"). Select FAQ/Help and click "go".

    And thanks, everyone, for the kind reviews regarding my fic.

    Hey Sugah, when you do it that way is the original story you're "exporting" replaced by the text you paste in?

    Nope. It stays the same. You're not deleting it or anything. The export function is there in case you want to edit the text. I do that when I notice errors. The original text stays there until you actually physically replace the chapter with a new document, which you can only do if you go to the edit story page and scroll down to the replace section.

    So that's how you edit a story that's been published. So much easier than how I was doing it - deleting, reuploading and republishing the entire thing.

    Thanks

    Yes. That's in the first post of the general Q&A thread. I don't remember which number FAQ it is, but you have to be a level 3 to do a lot of stuff.

    Thanks, CG.

    You're welcome, Mystik. A lot of times I don't even bother, and most of the times, I blame my betas. They're supposed to catch things like that.

    SUGAH - Loved "In Case Of Emergency", a much better scenario than what actually happened!

    MYSTIK - Latest Chapters of "Moving Forward" are great, such a sweet and romantic story.

    mraz, for tips on how to raise your level, go to the Q&A Thread and i think Sugah answers that question in the FAQ.
