    • How can I permanently change my filter setting?

      The filter setting adjuster that you see on most pages will only affect your current session; if you log out, it'll return to your default. To change your default filter setting, go to "Your Account" and "Edit Profile."
    • Why do I have to be 13 or older to sign up?

      It is, I'm sad to say, entirely a legal thing. FicWad is based in the USA (the servers and we, the owners, are both in California). Because we're in the USA we have to comply with a few requirements -- specifically, a law called the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA for short). That law says that if we collect any information from people under the age of 13 then we need to fulfill a lot of extra requirements.

      So, since we're a tiny website and want to avoid legal hassle, we just tell people they have to be at least 13.

      (There's also an argument stemming from parents being potentially angry if they find their children have been reading stories from our NC-17 category. But really we care more about the legal issues.)
    • How can I change my username?

      Send me an email at

      Let me know your current username and the new username you'd like. Send this email from the email address you registered with.

      (Yes, this is awkward. It's deliberately awkward, though. We'd like to encourage a sense of community, and think that's hard if people can change their names at whim.)
