One thing we should discuss is how to deal with unfinished work. Reading unfinished work can be annoying, but it's also a big part of the fanfiction community experience. Works in progress, or abandoned works which can be resumed can be fun to read and comment on. Even just begging the author to work faster can be fun, and it's a real inspiration to the authors themselves.

But you probably won't want to lend bandwidth to stories which remain perpetually unfinished or abandoned. So maybe there should be a maximum time limit on how long an abandoned story can be displayed. Or something like that.

Oh good one. mellow.gif I myself hate it when authors give up on their work halfway. (Yes, meaning I hate myself for never finishing anything multi-part -.-) Mediaminer.org has a limit to those stories as well. I think it's going to be deleted from the archives after two years not having been updated.

Also, about the rating. Can't exceed the R rating, right? Or is R already too much? ^^;;

I doubt NC-17 will be allowed here, but as for R, it probably depends on the ratio of sex to violence. Some things are rated R because they don't want younger people to see them; only a certain age group. You could do what Viz and the others do with their manga and anime and do the 'family', 'kid', 'teen', 'older teen', 'mature', and 'adult/18+' thing. happy.gif
I dunno; just a suggestion.

Now, I really like reading mature fanfiction (and I'm not talking porn, which is, in my opinion, the opposite of "mature"), and am staunchly opposed to censorship so I'm not sure about the rating limit we should impose.
There's a difference between porn and a sex scene (or even multiple sex scenes). The guidelines should definitely say "no porn" because porn is boring and dumb. And if people really want to imagine their favorite characters having sex, they can do so without aid, or they can solicit some other source.

But I'm a big fan of brutal violence, and I've read many fanfictions which treated their (usually only one) sex scene with taste and maturity. So I'd hate to exclude such fanfics.

Maybe we could just segment the potentially "offensive" fics in a section with very large and noticeable disclaimers which would prevent our getting in trouble when mom finds out that little billy's been reading tasteful "smut" that has like, one explicit reference to sex.

Indeed. I know exactly what you mean about lemons and the like. Although I do enjoy the occasional lemon scene or even something hinted at it, but that's only in a multi-part fic where the plot revolves around something other than porn... NC-17 PWPs. Short, pointless and all about sex. Nope.

Hard R rated because of violence. I've never seen such a fic before, at least not rated because of it. I'd have liked to read such fics though. ohmy.gif

Oov, I hope it won't come to those entrances-hidden-within-the-disclaimers kinda thing you sometimes see with NC-17 sites. It might be efficient when dealing with people who don't read disclaimers, enter a site and then starts flaming, but for people who already know and are mature enough to handle the content... Or wasn't that what you meant? ^^;;;

Maybe you should have something like:

Hey moron! Before you read this fanfic, it has two people having sex, a guy getting his head lopped off and blood spilling everywhere, and other things that shall haunt your children in thier sleep! If you wanna go on, okay, but if you don't: turn back because thsi fic is rated 'R'.

...happy.gif just a thought

Yeah that's pretty much what I'm saying, Zero. But let me describe what I was imagining in slightly more detail.

I'm imagining something with different categories for ease of navigation, like... 'Romance' 'Action' 'Drama' 'Comedy' and then have one that's like 'Mature' or some such synonym - and when it's clicked it takes you to an interim page that says "Adult Material beyond this point, continue at parental discretion if under 18." And a [Continue] button.

Now maybe this thing could stick you with a cookie so you don't have that extra step each time you want to visit the restricted section or something, I really don't know much about the programming angle.

OR, now that I'm thinking about it, you could skip the extra step by having a brief genre description under each category link. For the restricted section, the genre description would be the disclaimer and would be in red text.

The potential problem I see with this method, is that many fics can (and should) be categorized with multiple genres, and relegating things exclusively into the 'Mature' section, may make the fics more, instead of less, difficult.

Or maybe there's a simpler solution to it all, but that's all I can think of for now.

@Ghost: Hey! What's they used to do on fanfiction.net before they got flooded with all the NC-17 fics and put them on a different site. happy.gif;; There are some real pervets out there...

Mediaminer.org does the thing where it tells you if the fic is completed or not. Personally, I don't like seeing incomplete parts of fics. It enraged me. happy.gif

The reason this site won't suffer the same fate as fanfiction.net is because this won't won't accept smut.

(If it's exceptionally written, compelling smut, then maybe it can be hosted but with an extra disclaimer on the fic itself. This would be in rare cases and would in no way represent the major content of the 'Mature' section, let alone the rest of the archive.)

Is this a good idea? I don't know site administration/traffic management stuff.

<Merged "A General Writers' Section, I know this has been asked, but..." thread with the following 2 pages of posts here. 04/04/07 ~Tombow>

Well, I know similar things have been asked but why not have a General Writers' forum? People could post original fiction, poetry, and non-FMA stories there.

I always thought you were allowed to post non-FMA stories and poetry in the Fanworks section. I remember seeing a couple of Naruto fics and such in there. huh.gif

Maybe but a totally different forum for that seems like it'd be good...

Hm....Celestial-san has a point. There are a few non-Hagaren fanfics posted occasionally, but the entire catagory is still in the Hagaren sub-forum...it *would* be pretty nice to create a seperate little area for fan/original works. happy.gif

Like a General "Works" section? So that it could be for artwork as well.

I can't think at the moment. What would that be called? huh.gif

I guess it could be something like "General Fanworks" or "Non-FMA Fanworks"...? huh.gif
