Fallout Category Changes

I found out that the category for the Fallout games had three games with different characters and settings lumped together in one category, so I've split it up into Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4, putting it more in line with how the Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age games are treated.

I know this only affects a couple of people who are currently active and that this is not a scheduled announcement, but I don't like to make unannounced changes to existing categories.

All stories for Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 have been moved into new categories, while the old category is now called Fallout 3.

If you have existing stories for Fallout 3, these changes should not affect you. All I did was rename the existing category and remove characters from other games.

If you have existing stories for Fallout: New Vegas or Fallout 4, your stories have been moved to the new categories, and your characters have been re-added or added in where they didn't exist. It should have gone smoothly. Every story I checked arrived intact. I may have missed a "Reader" or a "You" in character selection, so if you're worried about your stories' metadata (summary, characters, genre, rating, etc.), please check. I didn't touch anything other than category and characters, though.

Any future stories for the Fallout games should be sorted by game, and any other/future games in the series should be requested for category addition as needed.

Enjoy the rest of your October and don't forget to check out the regular monthly announcement below for links to the GoFundMe, featured stories, monthly challenge, and Prompt-Off.

Also the links in the side bar have been updated to now link to Front Desk instead of ProBoards. If the links don't seem to have updated for you, try clearing your cookies or deleting your browser history. This should fix the problem!

We do know about the birthday validation bug. Due to the inclement weather in Texas, work on the bug has temporarily been delayed. We apologize to the users affected by this error and will fix it as soon as we can.

Closing Comments
Something of interest: there is a website called Hemingway App that assists in editing and understanding a piece of writing by breaking it down in a coherent and concise manner. It also offers an estimation of the general reading level. It seems to be a unique and helpful resource for writers, if you are interested!

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to head over to the forums to share them, or find a moderator on our About Us page.

Have a great September!
