Forum rules


Welcome to the NFA: NCIS Fanfiction Addiction Community!!



We don’t have many rules, but expect the ones we have to be followed without exception!

RULES:

Absolutely no flaming or disruptive behavior. Such behavior which disturbs the friendly atmosphere of the NFA Community will not be tolerated, and will result in the banning of the offender (after a warning, if the offensive behavior doesn't cease).

Discussion, positive feedback and constructive criticism are highly encouraged. No bashing of an author’s writing technique will be tolerated.

Please keep private messages private. Do not repost any private messages without the sender’s knowledge and prior consent.

You are required to have at least 50 posts to request official author status. You may enter challenges prior to that time, but you may not have an author board.

Please make every effort to ensure that your stories are somewhat error-free and reasonably formatted for ease of reading. If you would like someone to BETA your story (preview it for spelling and grammar errors), see the BETA requests thread.

Please rate and label all stories appropriately (see ratings). Stories not rated high enough or without appropriate warnings will be flagged and the author contacted for the necessary changes. If changes are not made, the story will be assigned a rating by the staff.

Please make every effort to tag your stories to the correct categories. Stories can be submitted to multiple categories, so take advantage of this feature. Stories may also be tagged to open challenges.

Spoiler warnings are strongly recommended.

Adding a disclaimer to your story, or at least your profile, is strongly encouraged. Sample: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any media franchise. No copyright infringement is intended.

Titles and summaries must be appropriate for all readers.

Please keep profanity to a minimum in forum discussion and reviews. Profanity is acceptable in stories, as long as the rating is appropriate.

Actor/actress stories are not permitted...not even if they're visiting an alternate reality. If you use an NFA member in a story, be sure to obtain their permission first!

A number of authors have requested that fans refrain from writing fanfiction based on their work. Therefore submissions will not be accepted based on the works of P.N. Elrod, Raymond Feist, Terry Goodkind, Laurell K. Hamilton, Anne McCaffrey, Robin McKinley, Irene Radford, Anne Rice, and Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb.

Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any way, shape, form or fashion.

No fanart, pictures or other images containing nudity may be posted, even in an appropriately rated thread.

Please limit your signatures to a maximum of 350x746 pixels. If you want to use text, icons, etc in your signature as well as a banner, be sure and make your banner small enough so that your total signature is not larger than the above limits. See example here.

If you have any questions or wish to report any behavior that does not support these rules, please contact a staff member.

If you have an issue with something a Moderator has done on the site, please contact iheartGibbs by PM with the issue. You will need to provide quoted post or PM examples of "unmodly" behavior. It will be kept confidential and will not be posted anywhere publicly on the site.

I cannot handle issues if I am unaware of them. I cannot fix problems that have never been reported.

Please keep a couple of things in mind:
1. Our moderators work on a volunteer basis. Some requests may take some time to fill.
2. Differences of opinion or personal views on issues posted by moderators may simply be that: personal. While our moderators do their best to remain professional, they were members just like everyone else before they became moderators. Not everything stated by a moderator is intended to be them laying down some sort of law or guideline. It could simply be the stating of their opinion. The opinions of individual staff members do not necessarily reflect the opinions of NFA a whole.
3. Moderators have the responsibility of reminding people when behavior is getting close to or crossing the line into breaking the rules of NFA. This is not personal.
4. This isn't an easy job to do, and being a Moderator seems to instantly open one up to criticism from members. Let's not get nasty.

Please bring all Moderator complaints directly to me. If your issue is with me, you can send it to another staff member if you are more comfortable.
