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.

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.

If you have any questions, or need help resizing your pictures or banners, send a PM to any of the staff and we will be happy to assist you!

Thank you so much!

----


I know at this time there are several signatures that do not comply with the above directive and will need to be changed. Please take care of this as soon as possible. If your signature does not comply with the rules, you will receive a PM requesting you make the change immediately.

Again, if you need assistance please PM a staff member.

----


Another note - if you plan to play Duck, Duck, Goose, you will need to make your signature pictures or banner smaller to allow room for a few lines of text.

If you are not willing to give up some of the icons or pictures in your signature, you will need to refrain from participating in the game.

----


Sorry for any inconvenience!

Can this be re-worded so that it actually says what the limit is? (in pixel size).

Right, in theory, according to the one app I can find that tells me pixels, my sig is now the right size, but please please please let me know if it's not. It looks too wide to me, so I'm gonna keep playing...

Thanks!

According to my check, you're dimensions are 375x800. So you'll need to shrink it down slightly.

Thank you!

I have one programme telling me it's exactly the right size, and another telling me it's 2000 pixels across. It appears that neither is accurate :banghead: which makes me wonder why they include the pixel count at all, but hey ho.

I just had an idea of a way to ensure I get it right, so you never know, it may appear tonight...

:banghead: I saved the sample shot, and overlaid my picture so it would be exactly the right size. In theory. It came out the same size as before.

:banghead:

I shall try again when I'm less tired, otherwise I fear the possibility of things being thrown across the room... :offtobed:

You can resize photos in Photobucket if you can't do it just on your computer.

Oh, I realised know that - will check it out!

You are right at the size, I think. So don't put in any extra text or anything, but as you have it, it looks like it fits.
