Only logged in members may submit stories. So go register already! Once your story has been submitted, it gets added to the What's New page. The story will stay there until it receives a minimum number of Fresh votes, after which it gets moved on up to the home page. Yippee! Stories that don't get the minimum votes after a few days are trashed. Aw, man...
I can't find a category for my submission. Can I still submit it?
Fortunately for you, we only accept submissions that fit in the existing categories. This keeps the flow of information defined and specific. That's better for everyone, believe us, it's true. Please don't submit stories that can't be matched to a category.
Can I delete one of my submissions after it's already been submitted?
Sure, when pigs fly! Actually, yes, you can, for a small fee. Once again I make a joke. Use our contact page and send us an email with the Story URL. You must be the submitter of the story and you must email us from the email address registered with your FreshPips account.
Can I edit one of my submissions?
Yes. Go to the Submitted tab in your profile and find the story in question. Under the Title, click on the admin links link and then on Edit. Make the necessary changes and click Preview and Submit to save the changes. Presto!
Can other users see my email address?
No. Your email address has been hidden from view of other users.
How many times can I vote for or trash a submission?
You only get one Fresh vote, so make it count! You can, however take that vote back.
My account has been deleted. What's the deal?
How do I change my registered email address?
Once you're logged in, go to your profile page and click Modify. Make the necessary changes to your email address and click Submit.
How do I change my password?
Déjà Vu. Once you're logged in, go to your profile page and click Modify. Make the necessary changes to your password and click Submit.
How do I delete my account?
That's actually impossible, not allowed, sorry... If you really, really, really want to delete your account ( we don't recommend it :-) ), please contact us with your account information. The email must come from the email address registered with your FreshPips account.
How do I delete one of my comments?
Contact us with the Comment URL. You must be the submitter of the comment and you must email us from the email address registered with your FreshPips account.
How many Fresh votes does it take to get me onto the home page (or main page for a category)? How many Trash votes does it take to remove my story?
Every great recipe has its secret sauce. This is ours, so stop wondering. Actually an algorithm, who's talking about would put you to sleep, makes that decision. Getting sleepy, aren't you?
I want to take my Fresh vote back. How do I do that?
Sometimes people have a change of heart. To take your Fresh vote back, go to the Voted tab in your profile and find the story in question. Under the Vote count icon, click Unvote.
My submitted story is nowhere to be found? What's the deal?
Once your story has been submitted, it gets added to the What's New page. The story will stay there until it receives a minimum number of Fresh votes, after which it gets promoted on up to the home page. Yippee! Stories that don't get the minimum votes after a few days are trashed. Aw, man...
