Author Favourites

KimLittle

Is there a way to find out who's list you're on? I'd be interested to see who has add mine, and then to read their work and see if there's any similarity/crossover.

I know that my favourites list is slowly being populated by stories that are not dissimilar in some themes to mine (and therefore have appeal to me).

Yes, follow the llinks:

SoL Home Page

Authors / Editors

Show Stats

Edit to add: make sure you have the link near the top of the list set to show More Details (thus it reads Less Details as the available option) and you're seeing eleven columns not just five columns.

and on the stats page click on the number in the AF column (edit add: second from the far right), it's a link to a page with the names of the authors who have you as a Favorite.

You can then click on their name (it's a link) to see their full list of Favorites.

Thanks for the detailed response, EB. I mean the "Favourite Authors Lists" one in the small box up near the top.

"Favourite Authors Lists"


Before we get too far down this road, let's make sure we're talking about the same thing.

When you go to the story page for an Author under their name are a number of links, only the ones they use show. If they use them all you'll see four links:

Email - Blog - Profile - Favorites

Click on the Favorites link and it takes you to the list of stories they've listed as their favorites. This is the list I think you want to look at, for the authors who've listed your story on theirs.

Now, if you follow the links i listed earlier to look at your story stats page you have a page showing a bunch of stats on your stories. I'll amend that earlier reply to clarify a few points in a moment.

On the stats page the second column from the right is titled AF and has some numbers in it beside your stories or a dash. Whatever the number shows is the number of other authors who've listed that story of yours as a favorite of theirs. Click on the number to go to a page that lists all the authors who have done that, then you can click on the name of an author to go and look at his Favorites list, from that you can then follow the obvious links back to their story page.

Edit to add: I think I got it all in now.

Ahh, okay. Different part then.

Still, thank you very much! ^_^

If you're seeking the information on who has listed your story in their library, the stats page will give you a number, but the details on who are not provided and they won't be, for privacy reasons.

@KimLittle

its like your writer's page or section depending on the way you look at things. Top of each page or portion whether blog or stories will give links to all the rest of the available information. Sure some information is not given out for privacy reason (those include just about all the safety factors I can think of and probably many which I missed).
