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

    Sad part is the board crash. That took away awesome writing and truthfully were the best parts of JJs fed. Him and I were the two most consistent with the same des and I always tried to excel to be as good or better than JJ. Now were both in the Hall Of Fame.

      Cheers Kid, can't deny the board crash killed the best part of our feds. In truth my 2nd WWWE fed, the one where I went from the Rumble all the way through to Wrestlemania and after was my best writing. Maybe once I'll recapture those moments.

        All good calls. I remember really REALLY digging Naked Cowboy's work. I used to think that Naked Cowboy became WMS. Now I wonder what happened to Naked Cowboy. Regardless... I remember digging his shit. Anyone have a link?

          Big time. When you talk about innovative, you really have to go back to pre-2006 stuff to see how much Fan Fic changed.

              And so since RT probably wouldn't let me do it if he was around, I have now moved the original New Era Wrestling into the Fan Fic Archives, preserving its place in Fan Fiction history.

              Basically, this fed is the one that convinced me to make PW my home. It was innovative, exciting and very well written. Notice how slowly he introduces the characters. When I start a fed the temptation is to start with a huge 40 man roster and then I lose track and waste people. RT introduces people one by one and only brings them in if he has something to do with them. His John Cena, Edge, Kane and Triple H are among the best characters I've ever read. If you have not read this from start to finish yet, then do so straight away and let's talk about it in here.

                  Re: Fan Fiction Archives Discussion - *New Fed Added*

                  Are we going to get any other feds put in the archive soon?

                  I think this little mini-section would benefit from one 'inducted' fed a month. Keeps it fresh. A little mini bio' can go with each induction, telling newer members just why this archived fed was such a success.

                  A poll each month could determine the induction.

                          Triple Bump!

                          Any thoughts on the future of this Archive subby, guys? I think it would benefit from a monthly poll to induct an old fed per month. There's some great stuff hidden away. It'd be nice to not have to do as much digging to find it, and also to showcase it in the archives.

                              Alright guys, I've had a discussion with RT and we both want to try and utilise this Archive sub-forum. I'm opening up this discussion to the rest of you in order to try and get your opinions on the Archives and what feds you'd like to see moved into here.

                              I think the Archives has a purpose - not only does it recognise the very best feds we've had here, but it makes it easier to find certain threads that can motivate you into writing your own material.

                              Here's my suggestion - we 'induct' one fed per month into the archives for a period of time until we come to a decision that there's not enough feds that warrant being moved into the archives. I don't think that'll be for a very, very long time, though. We have an abundance of quality feds in our disposal since we restarted things in 2006.

                              I'm contemplating with the idea of making a poll that sees every fed that has ever won the 'Fed of the Year', and is now inactive, nominated with the two highest voted options being our first 'inductions' into the Archive. After that, one fed per month will be moved into the archives with that fed being decided by a poll voted by all you guys.
