    <h2><center>Non Star Wars Fan Fiction FAQ 1.0
    (July 2008)
    </h2></center>



    Dear TFN fanficcers,

    Welcome to Non Star Wars Fan Fiction! Or as we sometimes call it, NSWFFNSWFFSWNSNWSWFFF. Within these friendly confines, you will find stories including, but not limited to, the X-Files, anime, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy & Angel, Batman, and maybe even a pirate here and there. Within our resource forum, which we call the Well of Lost Plots, you?ll find challenges and fandom discussion.

    We want this place to be creative, supportive, and most of all, fun. So before you start, please take the time to go over the rules below. We know you?re not excited about reading such a giganamous piece of JC legislation, but think of these rules as safety procedures at a nuclear power plant ? ?duck and cover? isn?t quite enough.

    Throughout the FAQ, you?ll see blue and underlined text. These are links that take you to other sections of the FAQ. It behooves you to follow these links so that you better understand of the context of our rules. Furthermore, read through the Rules & Announcements forum for general Jedi Council policies, as they all apply here.

    For some tips on general etiquette, watch How to Behave on an Internet Forum.

    This list is in no way complete. Don't panic if your fandom isn't here - as long as it's not on the Disallowed List, you should be okay to write. Remember to check back once in a while, as we may need to update both lists.

    Just a note that the plagarism section has been updated to comply with the ne Fan Fic FAQ. The changes are:

    b) If you borrow material from a profic author or any real-life material in general (such as song lyrics or poetry), the original creator must be credited.

    c) Before borrowing from a fellow fanfic author, you must ask that author's permission first, even if the fanfic is posted at another site. (This includes re-writing, re-posting, or embellishing someone else's fanfic.) Failure to do so could result in a ban. If you are unable to contact the original author for permission, PM one of the Mods and we will discuss it on a case by case basis.
