Submission Rules Amended Again
I've just amended the Submission Rules for this site to include the following:
A Note on Answering your Reviews:
Hopefully, the stories you post will be reviewed by the people who read them. However, I must strongly stress that if you opt to respond to your reviews that you must not under any circumstances, and under penalty of all of your stories being removed from my site, put these responses in the text of your chapters. This website is equipped with the means for you to respond to your reviews outside of the chapter and that is where responses belong.
They do not, I repeat do not, belong inside the text of your chapters. I don't care if you think they belong there, because quite frankly as the owner of this site, my opinion matters more. If I'm coming across as harsh or mean, I apologize because that is not my intention, but this is one of my biggest pet peeves and it really pisses me off. So don't do it. If you do, I will warn you once and remove all the review responses from the chapter before I validate it. If you do it again, your story will be deleted. Period.

The Submission Rules have been Updated
Just thought I'd post a short message to let you know that there's been an addition to the Submission Rules, detailing something we will not accept for posting on this site. You can read the addition to the rules here:
Things We Won't Accept:
4. Read the Book Stories - We will not accept any story that have characters from a book series reading the book they're in. Why? Because in my experience most authors of such stories have a very bad tendency to copy the chapters of the actual book word for word and include it in their story. So, for example, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley sit down to read the Harry Potter books and 95% of the text of these stories is copied, word for word, from JK Rowling's published works, while the author of the "fanfic" tacks on some extra paragraphs at the end allowing Harry, Hermione, and Ron to react to what they just read. That is not fanfiction. It's plagiarism and has no place on this site.

Just a quick note to let you know that I am aware of the recent spam reviews. I got several of them on my own stories. The staff and I have tried to get rid of all of them, but if you find any that we missed, please drop us a line and let us know and we'll get it deleted asap.
