    I’m not sure if this is my fault or not, but today I tried to open my story and discovered that all of my chapters – like ALL of them – that I had edited and polished specifically for this site were…deleted. I checked my other story, and what I had written was still there and not messed with. But I’m kind of confused as to how this happened. It may be the fact that when trying to upload my new chapter yesterday night, the site wouldn’t load it in, so I tried refreshing and refreshing, and eventually I said I’d try again in the morning. Is there something wrong, or is it just my fault? Did I mess up my story file? Or, I guess, more importantly, can the writing that was there before be recovered?

      Hi again! Unfortunately, if you weren’t able to save the draft then your work was never saved and cannot be recovered. We are looking into performance updates to the site to make it load faster.

        Ah, alright. Thanks for looking into it. It’s not a huge deal, my story is also saved somewhere else just in case. I appreciate the effort!

    Are you going to do more with the spam that keeps popping up? perhaps make it harder for spam accounts/ robots to post or get accounts. I know some sites make people wait 24 hours before posting to prevent spam.

      I know you’re trying, but I’m just a little curious about what you do about it besides delete it.

        Hello there! We know, spam is the worst, and we really wish these bots would leave us alone already!! But in all seriousness, we already have implemented recaptcha to stop the spam and are in the process of implementing another process to stop all the spam. We promise we are working hard to stop the spam. We hate it as much as you do!

    Hi Victoria! Do you mean the kind of thing that Goodreads has where when you click on the book you can see the reviews / stars?

      Sorry to interrupt, but I think she means that underneath the title when it shows the cover of the book, there could be a bar showing number of likes, comments, etc. like there was on Figment.

    Hello! Is there anyway to make it possible to organize the library? Like by genre? Or have a “most read” or “most liked” section? It would make it easier to find writings (although I do like how when you read a story, there are suggested stories, so please keep that).

    Also, are forums an option, possibly more like an actual forum, where users can make different topics? It’s kinda hard to make friends on here 🙁

      Hi there–LOVE the dog with a flower crown! Do you mean sorting your own library of writings or others’ writings that you’ve added to a shelf on your profile? While we don’t have forums, you can make a piece of writing specifically for talking to others. Have you checked out our Introduce Yourself discussion: https://www.getunderlined.com/create/introduce-yourselves/ to start talking with other users?

    Hello again, Team U! I don’t want to go back and look, so I don’t know if you already know this or not. But it seems that there is a glitch where, when reading the story, the button for going to the previous chapter will say “CHAPTER [X]:” and then the title of the chapter that you are currently on rather than the previous chapter that aligns with the chapter number.

        Thank you for responding! Here’s a link: https://www.getunderlined.com/writings/poetry-book/chapter/4/#chapter This links to “Chapter 4: Prompt: Personify a season.” The two buttons at the bottom say “Chapter 3: Prompt: Personify a season.” and “Chapter 5: Prompt: Use metaphors to describe how you came to Nebraska.”, which is the next chapter. As you can see, it reads “Prompt: Personify a season” for Chapter 3, rather than “Prompt: Write a poem about your hometown, even if you don’t live there anymore”, which is the actual title of Chapter 3. I am currently using the Chrome browser, as no other browsers work on my computer. Thanks for your help!

            The version of Chrome that I’m on is Chrome 65, but I have another computer that also does the glitch. I don’t know which version is on that one.

    I forgot to mention – could there be a way to block users, where you don’t see any of their stories, comments, posts, etc.? This could be extremely helpful with the bots!

    Hello! I was just wondering – if we can’t get rid of the bots, then what will happen to the site? Will a new one be created? Or will we suffer through the endless spam?
