Fanfic interfaces

Hey guys,

I've been designing a couple of different ways of displaying multi-chapter fanfics over in Experimental Interfaces. If you're an avid reader and/or have any spare time, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could take a look at some of the interfaces and leave feedback on whether they're easy to use, and especially on ways in which they're difficult to use or could be improved upon.

Longer term goal is to turn some of the better ones into templates that writers can easily integrate with their own fanfics. If any of the designs are particularly striking, feel free to use them on other wikis (this wiki's sorta running under a CC license anyway).


Note 1: Please post here if you're unable to post any comments under blogs -- there's a chance that some of the javascript I've installed is actually jamming the commenting functions (I can't be sure right now because I've been subjecting my computer to some pretty heavy work in the last few minutes).

The tabview scroller and the Swiper scroller seem very intersting in my personal opinion, however I find myself unable to comment on the neither one as it keeps on a loading stage for excesive amounts of time. Plus for me (I am currently on a iPad mini with retina display) the tabview bars do not even show properly, instead showing as regular links. The way you originally did it on your War of the Outcasts blog worked properly when I last checked (before the other options where implemented yesterday).

Got the blog comments and Tabview working again with some technical help from Community Central -- turns out I imported some duplicate javascript which Wikia already had running.

I've changed the functionality slightly: Swiper could only be used on blog pages before, but I've now enabled it across the wiki.
