Just a reminder that posting for evilsam_spn
begins on Monday the 5th August.
Three big things to check before you can post:
- your Posting Date
so you know when you're supposed to be posting
- that you are a community member (and not just a watcher) as the posting is open for members only,
- and if you haven't yet requested a posting date please do so before the 5th.Posting Guidelines
Please adhere to these posting guidelines as I will
ask you to edit your posts if this is not the case.Q:
When can I post my fanwork?A:
On your dedicated Posting Date
that you have signed up for.Q:
Where can I post my fanwork?A:
Anywhere you like as long as you post here on your dedicated posting date with a link to the fanwork and provide appropriate header information.Q:
I want to post my fanwork directly to this community, not just link to it. Can I do that?A:
Yes. However, if you are posting directly to the community, please remember to place all fanworks under a cut. Things outside the cut should only include header information, and any teaser quotes/small graphics.Q:
Hold on, it sounds like you're saying I can't post my 200 icons/wallpaper/other large item outside a cut.A:
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. Please exercise common sense and consideration and place any large items under a cut/behind a link. You can include up to three icons as a sample or a small thumbnail graphic as a teaser.Q:
How about that header information you mentioned?Header information for fic:Title:Author:Characters/Pairing:Rating:
The two systems typically used for fanfics are the MPAA
and Fiction Ratings
, either of those is fine.
As per standard fandom practice, things that you must warn for include character death, rape/non-con, under-age sex, graphic violence, specific sexual kinks
and anything else you think might be triggering/offensive/problematic. Do not be an idiot and warn for slash or het as neither are things that need warning for and the Pairing information should tell the reader everything they need to know about that.Summary:
Feel free to also include e.g. Genre (e.g. AU/case fic/romance/pwp), a standard disclaimer or any additional author notes.Header information for non-fic fanworks:
Feel free to adapt the fic header to suit your needs. Warnings, if applicable, must be included.Q:
I still have questions!A:
This is why the gods of LJ created the comment function, ask away!
HAPPY POSTING EVERYONE!
