Account Deletion on Fanfiction.Net
More Info at:
Everyday, writers who are reported by anonymous reviewers with no stated reason have their accounts deleted. Many of these authors have no backup files, no records of what they had before their deletion. Due to the fact that there is no warning system or email notification before the deletion this can often lead to the demise of an author. They might feel like giving up after losing it all. That is the last thing we want for all the wonderful writers on Fanfiction.net.
By signing this petition, you are saying that you think a little more time needs to be put into the report/delete process that Fanfiction.net has. You will be requesting that authors pending deletion have a chance to save their work through either the use of warnings or email notifications at least a day before deletion. If that is not at all possible, perhaps we are simply asking for the return of an author's work after the deletion of an account?
We have fallen victim to the unexpected deletion of author accounts. We were not warned. We were angered, shocked, confused. We still are a little mad, which is probably the fuel that is spurring this petition. But if you too have lost your account, if you are in fear of losing your account, or if you are sympathetic to those who have lost their accounts then we ask you to please sign our petition. Thank you.
