Ok, these are the rules for the time being.
Open to advice as new mods, if any, join.
-The Writers Café is for all kind of stories, pokémon or otherwise. However non-pokémon story should be marked as such (ie, if it's a Harry Potter story, just add (Harry Potter) to the thread title).
It is also for the discussion of anything and everythign related to books and writing. If you want to talk about the latest Harry Potter, or anything else writing-related, this is the place for it!
-There will be no plagiarism on this board. The rule is simple-You steal/copy another author’s work and claim it as your own, it will lead to you being banned immediately without warning. There is no excuse for not knowing it is wrong to plagiarize. If you need a further explanation of what exactly constitutes plagiarism, you can scroll down to Clare’s post in this thread.
-Fics containing graphic sex must be clearly labeled as such (NC-17 tag in the title).
-Do not flame fics or their authors. Criticize if you want, but criticizing is pointing out things that should be improved (IE "The dialogue's a bit awkward) in the fic, not saying the fic (or author) is "bad", "sucks" or is "moronic". By posting your fic, you accept that you may and probably WILL receive criticism. If you don't want criticized - don't post the fic.
-All new chapters to a fic goes in the fic's original topic. There's an update topic in which you can announce that your fic has been updated, and where you can check to see if your favorite fics have any new chapters. You can also make the first post of the topic an index post (see example below).
-Post the fic directly, not a link to a site where you have the fic stored.
-Once your fanfic has been completed (and ONLY once it is completed) you can contact the mods to have it moved to the archive forum.
Here's an example of an index post, from Pokemaster's frank
Table Of Content
*inserts link to each chapter as you write them*
*inserts any useful information on the fic*
