Fictioneer Posting Policy
Posting at Fictioneer! is free, and so is reading.
We'll keep it this way as long as we can, though we may eventually offer premium service or access for a small fee to help pay for servers and such.
Keeping it free is important to us and you can help by following these posting guidelines, which are likely to grow and change over time as we find out what works for everyone.
This is not a porn or adults only site, young people are welcome so posters please remember this. On the other hand, parents should be aware of what their children are viewing. There won't be anything here that can't be found in a general interest bookstore in Anytown, U.S.A.
There's a rating system, posters please use it. Here's an explanation of the terms:
General Interest - Equivalent to the PG ratings on movies. May contain mild language or sexual situations.
Young Readers - Intended for a younger audience. No profanity, obscenity or risky situations. Equal to movie G rating.
Mature Subjects - Not intended for the youngest readers, though may be okay for some teens. May contain strong language, some violence or sexual situations.
Restricted Viewing - About equal to the move R rating, not recommended for most teens. Contains strong language, violence or sexual situations.
Adult Oriented - Like the Restricted rating but stronger. Some graphic descriptions of violence or sex.
X-rated material, erotica, and other material centered on graphic sex or extreme violence is not to be posted here on Fictioneer, there are other sites for such writing.
The above ratings must apply to complete works, all chapters or episodes of multi-part posts and any illustrated matter accompanying.
Also, fan-fiction is allowed on Fictioneer! but not encouraged. If you're in doubt, ask. Authors should post stories which are based on characters, situations or backgrounds they have created themselves, or are in the public domain (like Robin Hood), or if permission has been granted by the copyright holder for such use. There are other sites that allow fan-fiction so we hope not to be overrun by it. :) There will be a permission to be noted and any fanfic posted here will be assumed that that the poster takes full responsibility.
Fictioneer! is designed for hobby writers and for professionals and would-be professionals who want to hone their skills in a friendly setting. It's also designed for readers who want to enjoy and comment on what the authors offer for their entertainment.
Most, we're all here to have fun. :)
