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.

It’s time to do some house cleaning!

The main page of NFA has gotten HUGE! While those of us who are familiar with the site are fine with it, newcomers are quickly intimidated.

In an attempt to make the site more user-friendly and less confusing, we’re implementing a new forum. Within this forum we’ll be placing author forums that have become inactive.

We have had several members move on throughout the years, and many of our author forums haven’t been used in a year or longer.

We will NOT be deleting any stories from NFA! The stories of inactive members will still be available inside this forum, and stories can still be commented on. This will simply allow us to move several of the forums off the main page and behind one click. The Retired Author Board forum will reside at the bottom of the NFA main page, below the active author boards. Simply click on that forum to find the author boards that have been moved.

If, at any time, one of these members comes back to NFA, their forum can be moved back to the active authors section.

As always, have fun and play nice! ;D
Sincerely,
Your illustrious staff

Is an authorboard not being used in "a year or so" the only criteria used to determine if an author board is to be retired?

Or if we know that the author won't ever be coming back, but yes, in general, an inactive author board is the criteria. However, we haven't talked about doing another cleanup as yet, although it might happen again later on. This is from 2011.

I'm relieved to see this, as I was a bit concerned about my "inactivity". Admittedly, I didn't write much in 2012 except for short one-shots, and most of those were for a landcomm I play in on Dreamwidth. I started moving my fic over here when I first got my author board, but found it very difficult because I lost all the formatting when copying/pasting things over. It was extremely time-consuming to put back in all the italics, bold etc. so I put that project on hold, and haven't used my board since then. Seems like the formatting will be an ongoing issue, even when posting one chapter at a time for a WIP. I use ff.net a lot because it's so easy to upload a Word document and have it keep all the formatting. But I don't want people to think I don't like it over here, because I do! I am hoping to be more active on NFA this year, and to participate in some of the NFA challenges.

I guess this is a question I should have asked a long time ago...is the Story Board just meant for NFA challenge entries, and anything else we post to our author board? Or are they not mutually exclusive? I know it's possible to post to the Story Board and then link to the story in our author board from the forums, so I'm just confused about what belongs where. :huh:

In order to enter a story in a challenge, it must be posted on the Story Board. Beyond that, you can post all your stories over there if you'd like to. I only post my challenge entries over on the SB, but some people post everything.

As for cleaning up the author boards, we don't move them until we've notified the authors. It's not going to take you by surprise. :) If you want to keep your board from being retired if/when we do this again, all you have to do is say so. :yes:

Hi guys :hyper: i decided to come back to the community. I haven't been on for about a year I guess because I got really into the show Psych and How I met your mother and been writing in FF for them constantly and still a little obsessed with the Avengers.

I wanna come back though and I even have a story written I wanted to post here and get some ideas on. :typing: :ncis:
