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.

New Default Skin
You may have noticed that the default skin has changed. It's something that's been in consideration for awhile now, with the thought being that the default skin should be more "work-friendly". In other words, no pictures of half-naked or kissing men. It is our hope that this new skin fits that description better than the original default skin. If you notice any problems with the new skin, please don't hesitate to contact the site staff.
P.S. The other skins mentioned in the last news item concerning skins will be back up as soon as possible.
