Fan Fiction Rules & Guidelines

THE RULES & GUIDELINES OF FAN FICTION


-There will be no flaming (insulting), spamming (making stupid, inane posts) and flame-baiting (luring someone into flaming you).

-You can't use deceased wrestlers. The only exception to this rule is if you're doing a federation that takes place in the 80s or something similar.

-Keep everything regarding your federation in one thread.

-There are three places where you can advertise a federation: in the thread of that federation, in your signature and in the Fed Thread. Nowhere else, if we find any advertising elsewhere, you will receive a warning for SPAM.

-Don't expect to get reviews from other people if you don't give reviews yourself. If you don't want any feedback to your shows, fine.

-Don't give feedback in the middle of a show. Posting in the middle of a show will result in deletion of your post and a warning for spam.

-You are not expected to leave a full on review of the show (though you can if you like). All you are required to do is to write a few comments with some substance behind them. This in no way shape or form means you can post one line reviews, they will be deleted and warned. So don’t post something like "Wow, great show! 9/10!".

-Even though it is creative writing, due to board rules we cannot allow racial and/or homophobic slurs/insults/etc. in your feds. This type of language will be warned immediately. And please note - racism is an automatic ban.

-Don't get mad when someone rips your show to pieces. Use the criticism in a positive way and use it to increase the quality of your federation. When someone insults you instead of giving good feedback, report that post to the Moderators.

-Don't bump your thread to the top if you've written nothing new in days. It just pushes other threads that are active down.

-If you're going to write a federation, put some effort in it. Stuff with horrendous grammar and spelling and no punctuation will be deleted. So will posts that only have ten or so sentences. They are regarded as spam. If you don't put effort into writing, don't even bother.

-If you're tired of your current federation and want to start a new one or return to an older federation, your current one must have at least four regular shows and a Pay-Per-View. This is done to prevent threads that have one or two posts in it. If you don't follow this rule, you'll be forbidden to start a new federation or return to an old federation for two weeks. If you make a fed within two weeks of the first one closing or return to an old fed, will we lock your thread, and it will not be opened for ANOTHER two weeks. For example, if you leave your thread on the 1st of the month and then make another one on the 10th, we will lock your new thread until the 24th. Two weeks from the opening of your new thread, remember that folks! For those whos fed follow the 'DVD Format' your fed must have contained at least four chapters in order to bypass the two week rule.

- Posters are now allowed a second fed, providing they have proven their commitment to their first fed. Permission to start a second fed will be granted from the moderating team. We will not consider anyone whose fed has not lasted at least two pay-per-views, however, this does not guarantee we will say yes.

- Two feds at a time Max.

- If you have two running at the same time, both must be updated a minimum of every 30 days. If this is not maintained without valid reason, one will be closed (poster's choice as to which is closed).

- If you abandon a fed/fed gets closed/etc., then you must wait until gaining permission again to start another second fed.

-You can also have one additional non-Fed related story in addition to your federation. This non-Fed has a two week rule, meaning you wait two weeks from the last post to post a new one.

-You do not need to contact WMS or RT to close a thread for you if you're moving on to a new project. Just let it drop to the bottom. We will also no longer be cleaning old threads for you -- start a new thread. Also, we do NOT delete threads. We keep them around for historical value.

-Spotlight of the Month: this is currently decided by the Power 10 Rankings. The winner is given the dubious honor of being the Spotlight of the Month. That Fed will be stickied for the entire month with the added extension “Spotlight of the Month” added to the end of their Fed Title.

-No more "I'll be starting a fed soon" or "more to come soon". Start your fed with substance or it will be deleted. And then you’ll have to wait two weeks to start another one.

-Plagiarizing is a serious offence and anyone caught doing so will be banned without warning.

-Multi-Participation Threads are banned for the time being, they descend into chaos too quick and quite frankly too much time is spent modding them.

-DO NOT post reviews of reviews, arguing with every person who reviews you. If you would like, after a substantial period of time, to reply to all reviews together, fine. Mindless bumps will not be accepted.

-Please note that all your shows and PPVs must take place in your thread not on a website elsewhere. Everybody else can write it here, so can you.

- The 20 Questions thread is a Question and Answer interview-like thread for the members of Fan Fiction. The “next” person to participate in the thread is chosen by the current person being interviewed. Please do not post asking to be next. The person before you makes that decision.

- Please do not post "get on AIM/MSN/Yahoo." If you want them to do so, send them a Private Message or Rep asking so. There is no need to waste a post doing so.

- General Discussion is banned from Fan Fiction. It was great while it lasted, but it was abused too many times.

-NO EROTIC LITERATURE!

Finally, a harsh reality for people: WMS and RT are the last word on a subject in FF. If we ask you, or tell you, to do something, it isn't a debate. At least not on the forum. If you have a problem, IM or PM one of us, and we will gladly sort it out.

Thank you.
The Fan Fiction Moderating Team,
WMS & RT

    Re: The Fed Thread

    Got an idea for a fed but I'm hesitant to run with it. The idea itself is good, but I don't see much potential for longevity. Last couple feds I've tried have crashed and burned for that reason (good idea on paper, nowhere to go after initial idea is out there). Also not having the time to write didn't help, but now that I've been settled in my new home for a few months and we've gotten into a routine with rt2, I have more time.

    If I start this up, The Superstar Project will continue. I know a few of you ask me about it from time to time because I don't update it much. I'll probably post entries just as often as I have been, or maybe more if I finally catch the writing bug again due to said new project.

    This post isn't really going anywhere, I just had to get this out there.

      Re: The Fed Thread

      I know I said it before when I started the project, but it bears repeating. Anyone who wants to drop a few lines or comments can. I am posting quite frequently as the build to the events goes on, but that does not mean I don't want posts interrupting it. Any critique is welcomed.

          This idea I'm playing with revolves around a promo I wrote in my head the other day. I just jotted it down in Word and it's one of the best things I've done in a while.

          Answered my own question. I'm running with this and seeing what sticks.

                  Re: The Fed Thread

                  I've missed this place... dearly.

                  If you haven't noticed, I've started a new project that I've been working on for a couple months actually. The first show isn't finished yet but I should have revised and posted up within the next few days. I have no idea how long this will take me or even where it will take me, but that's half the fun of it. If it fails, well... it's not like my record before was that reliable (facepalms as he continues to bury himself.) Either way, I haven't been this excited to do a project in a while.

                  I actually didn't come here just to plug it, though, I just wanted to address something before people made the comments themselves; some of the promos I've written out are bits and pieces of real-life promos. Not always word-for-word, but a little bit of realism never hurts in my opinion. For example:

                  Spoiler


                  This will definitely change over time as the story becomes more of my own. Just didn't want you guys thinking I'm a talent-less hack who writes down promos word-for-word from past YouTube videos.

                          Thanks, Kem. It feels good to be back.

                          The first show is officially up to read, guys. Sorry for the wait. It might need some grammatical revisions in the future but the storytelling is set and isn't going to change. Feeling kind of confident about this one, but I would much appreciate some constructive criticism if any of you get the chance. I've been out of the game for a couple years, after all.

                          I'd try to post shows all at once, rather than a part of the show here and a part of it there, but I just seem to write more fluidly when I'm doing it on the boards rather than a word document, for some reason.
