Registration Information

Self registration is closed. Since opening registration over a dozen members created duplicate accounts (many creating multiple duplicate accounts despite email notifications) and a spammer created over a dozen accounts. We hate having to close it (again), but we don't have the time or interest in continuing this pattern of deleting accounts.


Those interested in joining: If you want to join the MJFiction community and can promise to give back by reviewing those chapters/stories you read, please fill out this form:

Current members: Thank you again to those who have donated. If we are to reopen registration permanently or modernize the site, we will need to do some additions to the site, which will cost money. We received many offers to donate money when the site went down, and a few of those members have followed through on these. Unfortunately, the upfront costs of MJFiction are high as we came in after years of neglect to the site's maintenance. If you have a couple dollars to spare, please consider using the PayPal function. This will be the last request I post.


L.O.V.E. and mj

Just out of curiosity, why do you guys feel the need to delete duplicate accounts? Do they make the site run slow? What's the problem with having them? Just curious, just curious...

From a previous News posting: 

"All of the additional, and in most cases unused, accounts slow down the databases and add to the running costs of the site. It wouldn't be an issue if they were unique accounts, but the fact that the same people have multiple accounts is a kick. We can't get an accurate gauge of our userbase either as user having multiple accounts throws off the number massively."

There is also the huge issue of people creating duplicate accounts to review and boost their own stories, thereby setting an unrealistic comparison for the average writer. 

Please let us know if you have a duplicate - there is NO penalty to anyone who is forthcoming about it. Best!

I don't have any. I was just curious to know. Thanks for responding!
