Note to Users: Shifti recently had a massive hard drive failure. The only full database backup is dated September 2009. All stories/comments posted after that date, as well as user accounts, need to be re-posted. Our apologies to Shifti users and readers. You might be able to retrieve pages from the Google Cache if you get there before the next indexing run. To find a specific page in the Google Cache, search on cache:<the URL>. For example, cache:http://example.org/the-url.html. You can then save it by viewing source and then copying the code into a text editor.
Shifti is a wiki devoted to fiction involving shapeshifting of every variety - animal, anthropomorphic, transgender, age regression, inanimate, you name it. Here people can post stories, reviews, link collections, references, and all manner of other resources.
If you wish to post a story please visit Help:Posting stories for more information. The "Upload File" link is not intended for text.
Site news can be accessed via the Current Events page.
If you're interested in helping to keep Shifti operating, then check out the Donations page. We are currently accepting all forms of monetary support available. In that vein we are planning to publish an anthology of stories that can be found on Shifti. Details can be found on the Best of Shifti page. If the book works out well we may publish a new version each year.
NOTE TO EVERYONE
Recently one of our more technologically aligned, Macintosh using, Californian users has decided to attempt to make a mirror of Shifti. Please do NOT do this. The severe downtime that we have suffered today has been the result of that attempt. To be precise, the software being used - SiteSucker 2.3.4 - is actively DoS'ing Shifti and taking us offline. If you want a backup, we have weekly backups of the entire database that are available. All you have to do is find one of us Administrators online and ask. (And no, I don't mean via one of our Talk pages, either!)
