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

  • Fan Fiction Archives Discussion - The 2014 Bump

    Well folks, this thread is for discussing the feds from Fan Fiction's past that we do not want to forget. Use this thread to talk about the Feds we move in here as well as offering suggestions for feds you feel deserve a spot.

    Try not to use this as a General Discussion Thread, but use it to talk about old feds specifically.

    Any Fed that has won Fed of the Year perhaps? I'd love to see LSW, NEW, SEX, Legacy and Run In's TNA fed in here for starters.

      Considering I'm still new to the forum in general, I've always had an interest in reading old feds in fan fiction. Either feds that are held in high regard by the members of its board or as WMS said, feds of the year should be put in here.

        LSW and SEX need to be in here stat. Also, one that KJ mentioned to me the other day, SupeRAW.

          Man I just want to say that this was a brilliant idea on behalf of the mods. I'm looking forward to digging into some of these feds I've read so much about.

            KWF, SupeRAW, Run In's TNA, Ultimate Xtreme Wrestling (berrysi/Naked Cowboy) for a start. There's many more though.

              Why UxW? Gave it a read and enjoyed it, but it was short and I wouldn't hold it in the same regard as the others people have listed here.

              I could name 20-30 feds that deserve to be in this forum before that one.

                  We already have a list in mind. Def wanna get some older stuff in before anything too recent. I'd urge people to read through JJ's fed and talk about its pros and cons in here.

                    Because I believe it had as much impact as SEX did. If SEX is considered a possibility, why not that?

                    The format used and the ideas are produced are as innovative and stylish as anything, as much as I respect them, that PI or KJ did with the respective formats heralded so much.

                    If not straight in The Archives, I believe there should be a thread held back with links or suggestions as to what threads to read, a "Special Mentions" thread, for example.

                      1. SEX won Fed of the Year
                      2. SEX lasted months longer and spanned shows and events longer
                      3. SEX was the first fic' given 'Spotlight of the Month' prior to P10's arrival.
                      4. SEX is written by a HOF'er and Fan Fic legend.
                      5. SEX is remembered and mentioned to this day.

                      It doesn't belong with the names mentioned, formatting or not.

                      EDIT: It's just, if not more, laughable that you hold it in the same vein as LSW.

                        I'd like to see The Archives held up as somewhere where we can see different projects with different formats, styles and ideas, not just the mega popular few. It'd be good to have a genuine mix. His project did not go a full distance, but it had a great amount of quality.

                        However, the idea of that thread going in is clearly not popular and that's fine, only a suggestion. I'll hold back on suggesting any further ones and leave it up to PB/RT to decide.

                        FYI, I don't hold it in the same vein as LSW, LSW is probably in my top 5 favourite projects ever.

                          I agree that all of the feds who have won Fed of the Year should naturally go in here. I also have to give a nod to jTj's aPw. I have no idea if you can still find it on here, but RIH's RAW I think deserves a mention also.

                            It's available to get on the Net Archives, I remember various people linking it through the years.
