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

  • Aside from the lay off and the fact I'm moving again, pretty good.

    We had a nice family vacation in early August that took us all over Alberta. Visited friends and family and the kids had a great time.

    My daughter is excited to start school again. Hoping she likes her new school. She's going into Grade 1 and we decided to put her in French immersion, so she had to change schools for that. She's a smarty pants and is excited to be learning a new language which is good.

    I fly out to Ontario in a week and start my new job on the 11th. I'm really not looking forward to leaving my family here so hopefully the house sells quickly and we can get them all moved and settled out there. I think the longest work trip I ever went on was 10 days so I'm really dreading the possibility of not seeing my family for several months. Keeping our fingers crossed.

    How was yours KJ?

    • Oh, you know ... not bad. Job is going great, little man turned two last week and Baby Boy No. 2 on the way this week (missus being induced this Thursday at 6 a.m.). Hard to complain. The move to Cincinnati last year was one of the best things we've ever done, both career and family-wise, so we're laying down some roots and building a house. Pretty excited.

      • Hey guys, swing over to The Gridiron section and join the Sports Empire guys on the football fun. We have a pickem thing started for the season along with a survival competition starting. It's all on Yahoo and it's making me sad to see the small amount of people who have joined. These things used to have loads of people and now it's in single digits. Come join in on the fun.

            • Awesome news KJ, congrats. I'm going to put some smoke in the air for you and your new little miracle.

              Haven't posted much in fan fic this year. Hope all you boys are doing good. Been busy like a motherfucker lately, going to drag my tools and trailer down to my motherland this weekend and get my hands dirty on some rebuild. My uncle on my dad's side had 3 feet of water in his house, everything ruined and no insurance. Going to try like hell to go to the Texans game Sunday while I'm down there, that's really going to be something special when JJ Watt comes out of the tunnel for that one, I would really like to be there for that.

              • Started a new job two days ago and Monday, I take over from the Chief Quality Inspector who is leaving, such is the impression I've had. Means more money. Along with a job that is four ten hour days, meaning long weekends, fair to say things are looking great for me at the moment.

                Feeling the best I have all year. Started psychology too so taking the right steps to help move on from what has been happening.

                • That's awesome Kid Jericho . Hope the Mrs. is doing well. Two seems like a huge adjustment.

                  Glad you're feeling good at the minute Kemis. Keep at it.

                      • Congrats KJ. Greg, you're getting closer to seeing actual bare naked ladies. Continue on the path, you young buck!

                        Anyways, I haven't watched wrestling in awhile, but heard the fuss about the Cena/Reigns shootish promo. So I watched it and I thought John Cena was awesome. They actually made me laugh and say "wow". Good shit. Especially the, "because you're not doing your job" line by Cena at the end. Crazy shit, but the only way the WWE universe of dweebs would actually care for a Cena/Reigns match.

                        • So starting Monday I'm moving onto a new role within my company, which means a pay rise, after just one week.

                          What a time to be alive.

                          How the hell are the rest of you?

                          • I started my book over, taking things one scene at a time now, editing until a scene is as good as I think I can make it then moving on. Currently three scenes in. And to be clear - I didn't get rid of everything I've written. I've just gone back and started editing. How about.... 270 pages of stuff to go through, and at least 30 - 40 of that is scenes I haven't fully written yet.
