Welcome to The X-Files Lost and Found Board.

Having trouble remembering the title or author of a fanfic? Search for it here. Are you a wealth of fanfic knowledge? Please, share it.
But when you post a request, PLEASE be specific in the subject line. Title, author, or genre of fic will narrow down the search and direct
people who may know what you're looking for. Generic or vague "Looking for a fic" subject lines are not helpful, as that's all we do here.
And while off topic posts are allowed, we'd all appreciate an OT in the subject line so we know you're not asking a fic question.
It's all about the fic, so it's all good. Thank you for your co-operation.

And don't forget to check out The Board Guidelines!

Re(1): OT: Gossamer search

Here's what the policy guidelines say at Goss:
We do not permit "deep linking," which is when you provide a link directly to one of the stories on our site. Such links remove the context around the story and replace it with your own. We expend a considerable amount of effort to index and display stories in a consistent, readable format. Linking directly to the stories makes them appear to be part of your site instead of ours and imposes a substantial drain on our resources to serve those stories. Although a small number of archives have permission to link directly to stories on Gossamer, we do not intend to establish any new linking relationships.

Hope that helps.

They've never allowed direct links to stories afaik, although many people have found ways around that. 8-D I don't think Goss has ever shown up when I've searched on Google, although YMMV. I've always found the Goss search function to be most helpful for keyword searches, rather than a general search.
