    Just noticed this story has a two-year gap in it! How do you recover these old folds? Is there a trick to reverse the ordering? I tried clicking "More" for half an hour, and it seems hard work...

    I like to see things finished and hate to see a good story start languish, so most of my folds come from the dormant section. From ADD in the side bar you can sort sort the stories. If you like old sort by dormant and the oldest appear first, newest apear last. With 495 pages there are a lot! If you have a penchant for getting things done go for almost finished.

    Gee, thanks. Never noticed you could click the CREATE ADD READ. It was probably banner blindness with those huge capital letters. Alright then, I'll have a look at those dormant stories.

    This has got to be one of the longest completion times for a story - nearly 4 years!. Another hint about hidden links: if you click on "top stories this month" just below READ, you get - surprise - the top stories this month in order of totaled likes. But wait, there's more... You can sort in different ways, you can also show top stories today, this week, month or... all - which gives you the "all time" top stories. Ofcourse things shift around as likes accumulate. The "search" function next to the "home" at the very top is useful for searching for published folds containing some text. Say you want all folds with "giant crabs", enter the phrase (with quotes). If you leave out the quotes you get all folds containing both "giant" and "crabs". Have fun, and by the way welcome here to both of you!
