    Dead fanfictions policy

    Dead fanfictions policy

    Just some information about so called "dead" fanfictions...

    A fanfiction is declared as dead, and will be moved to the Fanfiction Graveyard, when the last update from the author was 5-6 months* ago.

    If you as an author have a dead fanfiction in the graveyard and wish to update, just post the update in the existing thread, and a moderator will move it for you. If it's not moved within a week, feel free to send a fanfiction moderator or me a PM, including the things below:

    ---------------------
    The url to the fiction itself (will save us much time looking)
    Where you want it moved back
    The title of your fanfiction
    And what category the story is in now (should the url not work for some reason)
    ---------------------

    You may not have you fanfiction moved back to the normal fanfiction section unless you've posted an update.

    Thank you.

    Any questions/comments can be directed to me

    *Timeline may change, so check back once in a while to make sure you're updated

    lol...

    i figure my fics make up 50% of the dead population...

    don't be sad, not all of them are "dead" declared by author. don't give up hope until the author comes back with some flowers for the headstone and a candle to pay vigil.

    *snickers* ...and even with the dead ones *looks guilty*, you know there are such things as Zombies and Vampires... you never know when a dead fic will tun into the undead and lurch back to life!

    I've seen it happen more than once. Hell, I've done it. Don't give up on the dead fics.

    My dead fictions aren't dead at all. They're going to be updated very slowly, but it will get done. I understand the new policy though, and it seems like a good idea to keep things loading quickly and efficiently. No reason to load neglected threads every time you click on a new page. So, if you were worried about the many nonky fics in the dead zone, just remember: N for nonky and N for neglected. But I've got the paddles charging.
    Her soul is senstive like a finely made tuning fork. It vibrates and resonates with every little hint of trauma, evil and monstrosity that might be humming in the air, and channels it into expressions of fiction... or recomended websites - somethingeasy

    too true that. Mine are pretty much representing a 'Dia de los muertos' cycle. Once a year I actually get inspired enough to drag the moose by the antlers out of my closet and write a chapter. Thank goodness that it's easier when Blue and I write together.
