    Forum Rules (Revised January 8th 2008)

    Okay, I've gathered all the forum rules into one topic. It will be wise of you to read through the following rules. Failing to follow the rules will lead to increased warn level, moderation of all posts, account suspending and maybe even banning from the board.

    Please also see important Forum Policies located in this forum.




    FANFICTION

    NO STORIES WITHOUT CHLEX WILL BE POSTED ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD. THESE STORIES WILL BE DELETED.
    • Put the rating in the topic title
    • Put in a disclaimer in the first post. (May not seem such a big deal to you, but it is to us)
    • Post your story in the right fanfiction category! If you do NOT post in the appropriate category, a moderator or admin has the right to move it without notifying you.
    • You have to have a date present in the thread title stating when you last updated or if you're posting a new fanfiction, simply put the date of when you created it. Then the next time you come to add a new chapter, edit the thread title and put in the updated date.
    ADDITION IN THE NC17 SECTION!

    1. Stories where the majority of the plot will revolve around NC17 rated material/storyline are to be posted in the NC17 fanfiction section.

    2. If your story only has less than three chapters with NC17 material, please post them elsewhere with a
    clear warning before the actual chapter(s).

    3. For stories that gradually build up to NC-17 and have more than three chapters of NC-17 material, please post the story in the NC-17 section. If you add in NC-17 chapters later, and have posted your story in another category, contact a fanfiction moderator and he/she will move it for you.

    4. For PWP (porn without plot) or short NC-17 material, please post it in the NC-17 section.

    UPDATE ON SHORT STORY SECTION1. 2,500 words or less, whether it be in one post or a series of posts.

    THE ARTS CATEGORY
    • If the picture is big in either kilobytes (kb) or pixels (px), either post a thumbnail or just a link. Don't mess up the tables, because it doesn't look good.
    • Of a picture/art contains nudity, only a link will be posted and it has to have a warning saying this contains nudity. Some may be posted in the Blue Lounge (rated NC17), but it would be advised to ASK Julie BEFORE you post it!
    • You will not use others artwork unless you can prove you have written permission from that person. If you catch someone using your art without permission, PM me and prove to me you own the original artwork and the other user will be banned. I will have no stealing of arts here!
    THE BOOK CLUB

    When wanting to discuss a book, start a new topic for it. If there already is a topic for the book you want to discuss, just post a reply in the appropriate thread. Threads on the same book will be merged.

    MUSIC VIDEO POSTING (These are more guidelines...)


    When posting a music video to the board, please add this to the first post:

    Title:
    Author: (Your name or nickname)
    Summery:
    Rating:
    File size: (in MegaBytes)
    Quality: Low, Medium, High

    This is a rule though:
    • Post the url to the video file itself, or the page where the video is located. DO NOT just post the link to your main site. This goes as advertisement.

    OVERALL FORUM RULES

    1. Be civil towards other posters.

    2. Back your opinions up with a reason (don't just say something suck, also give a reason as to why that sucks)

    3. When a topic reaches 250, start a new one. A moderator/admin will close the old one and move it to the Graveyard (this rule does not apply in the fanfiction forum)

    5. Don't start similiar topics if there is already one covering it. If we find topics like that, they will be merged (turned into one...)

    6. A mod/admin has the right to move your topic without telling you beforehand if you posted in the wrong category.

    7. A mod/admin has the right to delete/edit your post if it violates the forum rules.

    8. NO shouting!

    9. No messing up the tables, so don't post ~~~~~ in a too long row, break up your words, don't post pleasepleasepleaseplease f ex in a too long row.

    10. As for fanfiction banner rules, you may post an image as large as you want as long as it DOESN'T stretch the tables and is bigger than 50kb in size.

    MISC QUESTIONS

    Can I swear on this website?

    This isn't intended as a censorship site nor to curtail freedom of expression. Curse words are used in the fanfiction sections and is at the discretion of the writer.

    As for the rest of the site, we ask that you respect the forum rules and treat every member with respect and courtesy. Abuse will not be tolerated.

    If you are asking with respect to venting your frustration at situations (whether real life or the stupidity that is on tv), then feel free to express yourself as you need to. Just keep in mind that we have a large fan base covering young teens to the more mature.

    SIGNATURE AND AVATAR RULES

    Avatars
    Maximum kb (file-) size: 15kb
    Maximum px (image-) size: 100x100

    Signature
    Maximum kb size: 20kb
    Maximum px size: 350x100

    You can have as many images as you want in your signature, as long as their total COMBINED width and height aren't bigger than 350x100 px and 20 kb.

    Only jpg/jpeg, gif image formats are allowed.

    ALSO!

    If you are posting an image, f.ex. an art you've done, if the preview image is larger than 70kb, you will have to post a link. This goes for all images. Images of AM f.ex. which are larger than 70kb, you'll either have to make a smaller preview image and/or link to the image itself.

    Signatures and avatars that violate these rule will be edited out an an alert/warning will be issued. This is so it won't take so long to load the pages.

    I have a question regarding the rules. If you're posting a banner that goes at the beginning of your fic, what is the size limit?

    As long as it doesn't screw up the tables, and isn't bigger than 50kb in size, it's okay.

    I see them too. I thought I was seeing things at first. Like I see dead people. I see numbers in parenthesis floating next to thread title. WOOOOO AWWWW.

    What are those things?

    They just showed up yesterday, and I was going to ask this morning about them as well. I actually spent about ten minutes trying to figure out what they meant, but I can't find the logic behind them. They don't seem to directly correlate to the length of a thread, the age of a thread, the number of replies to a thread, or the rating of a thread--although they occasionally seem to be affected by those kinds of things. Some threads don't even have a number. I can't figure out what else they might mean.

    The numbers reflect the number of people who are subscribed to the thread

    Heheh. Ah ha! A simple explanation. If there's a mystery, I'll always analyze it until I get an explanation.

    Thanks, Julie.
