Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

Sorry. But if I do that, people won´t bother to look at it if it hits the second+ page once it eventually goes there, due to the constant creation or updating of other threads. And since I need an audience, comment etc. I am kinda forced to do this, since posting it changelog-style won´t place it in the first page.

Btw, the MLP fic got its seventh chapter.

That's childish. If your fics are interesting, you will find an audience either way.

Maybe. But I have no reason to take the risk.

The crossover received a new chapter.

Other people posting on the thread will still bump it up to first page, as well as sticking it in the previous posters' New Replies page. Once people (like KittyTac apparently) get interested and start to post, you won't need to update the thread yourself. And it does make it very hard to read.

Let's line up the pros and cons of the two methods!

New post every time you update:
Keeps you from going down if people do not post in your thread
Hard to read
Keeps newer threads from floating up somewhat

Changelog:
Very easy to read
Frees up space for newer threads
Doesn't bump the thread, only leaves a "new" mark

Changelog is better.

And the "new" mark makes it likely that other people (like KittyTac and myself, at the moment) do post in the thread, thereby bumping it.

Just something I forgot to add. Those of you that bother to check out the stories, can you please write a short commentary either here or on the sites? Thank you.

MAJOR UPDATE: I decided to remove the MLP fic/discontinue it. Simply put, it began feeling uninteresting to write it. So now that said fic is out of the way, I will focus completely on the crossover.

P.S. Updated the crossover to chapter 19, the biggest one so far, with 10 000 words (including AN).

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I apologize for not updating for so long. I forgot to do it :p. Anyways, there are 3 (4?) chapters released of the fic. Please take a look. Thanks.

Why remove it? Coming back years later to re-read something and finding that the author took it down is one of my pet hates.

Also, you might wanna make the thread title more descriptive than it is. Atm it looks like a general fanfiction thread.

"Archibald's Fanfiction" would be nice.
