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

    He was way more active around here than that. He was one of the few guys around here that had my back with the mma forum when it was first moved to wrestling section. He was one of the guys that kept that place going. I got to know him on Facebook back when my sis died, guy was just super supportive and friendly.

                This has hit me really hard. I always liked Brad. I know he had his struggles, but I never in a million years imagined anything like this would happen. Rest in Power Brad, thank you for being part of our community and for being a friend. I can never recall any negative experiences with Brad, he was always a great, stand-up guy to me. I'm going to miss you mate.

                    Brad was always a good guy and I enjoyed all of my interactions with him, we had quite a few hockey related posts here and there together. Had no qualms or problems with the guy ever, always enjoyed what he wrote whether through the SE or through MMA. Hate to see someone my exact age lose his life, awful news. God bless him and his family.

                        Re: Fan Fic GD - In memory of Brad

                        I just don't know what to type. I wish I would have tried to be more of a friend to Brad. I just read back through all 6 or 7 pages of our visitor message conversation and it made me cry. I friended Brad on facebook back when my sister died. We talked a lot for a while and became very good friends on here. Then I deleted my facebook account over some baby mama drama, I still don't get on there. Brad just kind of drifted away from this place little by little over the past year or two and we never really talked over that period. I really had no idea the extent of trouble he was going through. Last I can remember was a post about him being in rehab or something he posted here in fan fic general discussion a while back, which is the last that I can remember seeing him around. I repped him something that I can't remember, something about staying strong or something. I seen on his profile that he edited his title to "2002-2015" or something. I don't know why this hits me so hard. Right in the heart. Maybe it's because he is the same age as my sister, and I'm reading about stuff in this thread about him having substance problems and possible relationship problems, maybe it's because he looked up to me as a friend and I just kind of neglected him in that regard. This hurts. Any of you guys reading this, you know who you are, know that I'm here if you ever need somebody to talk to. Sometimes I don't know the right things to say, I don't know how to be a good friend, but I still care about you and I'm here. We lost one of our own, he's getting put into the ground tomorrow morning and I'm shaken up pretty good about it. If there are any updates on what happened I'd really appreciate it. Love you guys.

                            Brad and I got along great and he was a friend here on Facebook. This is definitely a punch in the guy.

                            I didn't know on a personal level or about any of his demons but we had a few good conversations in PM's where we were just shooting some shit.

                            RIP Brother.
