The reason she guides people all the way down to the mountain's base is that she wants them to hurry up and leave.
This might not actually be a minor suggestion but maybe it's simpler than I think it might be?

I was wondering if it was possible to make the comment/reply box draggable, to achieve an effect similar to this AO3 extension? (That example is more complicated than just being able to drag the box around the screen, but it's the best reference I have.) I'm assuming just dragging the box would leave the quote/reply functions intact, so it'd be easier to comment as you read. Otherwise you have to scroll up and down, or have a second tab open, or just wait until you finish reading to write your comment.

Would it be possible to have an alert option for only when the thread starter posts? It's a bit inconvenient to be alerted to a thread every time someone comments when I just want to know if OP updated their work/replies to comments.

This Pokemon can sometimes be found meticulously editing and re-editing it's own content, never satisfied with the results.

I'll bring this to the team on Discord and see if it's something we can add easily or not.

We wanted this, too. Unfortunately, the only decent option we found relies on a third party cloud service that costs almost twice what our entire server does each month. While it's not out of the realm of possibility, right now we just don't know of any reasonably priced tools that can make it happen.

EDIT: Actually, it was that the one option we *did* have had performance issues, and the *other one* was a very expensive service. Since we've switched servers the performance is better so we could try to re-evaluate, but no guarantees it behaves...

Talk softly and slowly so you don't scare this gentle creature.

Not a minor suggestion per se, but I think it's one I can handle! I'll need to do some research to figure out the best way to do it, but creating a floating reply box should be feasible. I'll have a look into it when I can, and start figuring that out!

Sorry if this has already been suggested or if it's available elsewhere, but would it be possible to add Deviantart as one of the websites under Identities, or else have additional customization options? I know there's a single field called Website:, but I think it would be helpful if one wanted to add multiple sites (like if you have deviantart and tumblr, or want to link to other comic or writing hosting sites). Thanks!

@Swablu easily done! The option is now there, along with an Ao3 one :^)!

Don’t talk to me about BW2, ever. I don’t want to talk about it with you.
Hippity Hoppity Howdy, I dunno if this has been asked about yet, but I was wondering if there's any plans to bring back either the Pink Name Group or the Holiday Theme Group in the future? I honestly really liked those groups cuz I'm not really good at writing or art, etc, and it helped with not feeling left out.

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.
Would anyone else like the possibility of adding a storyshot tag in FCR? It's not a super big deal, but I'm just curious if anyone else would like the idea.
(Or is there already a similar option and I haven't seen it? I haven't ventured into FCR tags too much *hangs head in shame*)

If the opportunity arises, I'm sure we will make use of special limited-time usergroups again.

You can actually create *any* tag you want when making your topic. Members can tag with whatever they think people will search for. Right now there are nearly 2000 existing tages, including storyshot!
