Nominations for next month’s featured stories are now open on the forums~ The theme shall be “impending doom,” appropriate for October. You can nominate over here!
And now for your monthly dose of things the mods would like you to know. New categories/characters can be requested in this thread on the forums. It’s a sticky under Information Desk, if you ever need to find it. Please try to limit your character lists to a maximum of 25, and character “groups” or “classes” don’t count as characters (for instance, the Heartless or Prinnies). They need to have a defined personality to be added. Also, please put things in the proper category! Anything that’s classified under Original Fiction should be your own work, not fanfiction of any sort. Pick the proper genres, such as “Fantasy” or “Romance,” and please do not add those stories under Original Fiction -> Romance if they aren’t, well, original fiction.
The last thing is a definition of what constitutes a valid submission, and thus is allowed on the archive. As a general rule, we don’t allow submissions that don’t contain any story content – that means tables of contents where the first chapter of story isn’t included, or character profiles, or challenges (which have their own separate section; use it, please!), or notes that you’ll write this chapter later, or first chapters that consist solely of author’s notes (though those are sometimes acceptable later in the story). Lists of updates, rants, and such can go on your profile. Diaries are not allowed either, unless they fall into the category of memoir, which are more a depiction of events in your past than, say, a summary of how you feel on a particular day. Please use your profile or an offsite journal for those.
If you have any questions, concerns, comments, complaints, or anything at all to say, productive or unproductive, feel free~
