The following are general writing and art forum guidelines:
1) Be respectful when you leave feedback.
If all you can think of is "it sucks" or "you ugly," then don't say anything. Conversely, if you don't want feedback and just want to post it to share, then you need to mention that so we know to just say "omg teh r0xx0rz"
2) Don't plagiarize someone else's work.
On the same note, if you're using someone's work for something, please ask them beforehand. People like Rai and CZ get really, really
irritated at this sort of thing, and you don't want people like Rai and CZ irritated at you on this
3) Post as much as you like.
Really, there's no rule that says you have to post all in one thread, or make a new thread for every story. Just do what feels natural, you know.
If, however, we deem you to be spamming uselessly, there will be banhammer-waving.
4) Be aware of all rules before posting.
The general forum rules also apply here. Play nice, don't post pirated stuff, don't bring Deviantart drama (or wherever) into your TFS posts, etc. These are all global stickies for your convenience, guys, so be aware that the mods consider ignorance a poor excuse for breaking the rules.
In addition, these guidelines relate specifically to Sagacious Writing of Intent: This forum is for worksafe short-story prose/poetry only.
If you want to post porn or longer works, we have other forums for that. If a submission has NSFW elements, it may be posted here as long as it is clearly identified.
However, we would prefer that you post anything more explicit than "fade to black" in the NSFW forum. If you post something in the wrong forum, it will be moved, not removed.
Don't panic. If you decided to post your 40-chapter fanfic here, it probably got moved to the novel forum, so check there before getting too excited.Sagacious Writing of Intent News:02/04/2010
- The new version of TFS (the "second edition" if you like
) is more than likely going to host a fiction archive. We will leave everything here and let you guys decide if you want to repost your works in there, or just leave your old stuff here.
We are currently working to move posts from the old Auspicious Fanwork Method forum to the new forums. Please be patient, you people are a prolific lot.
