    Are there any writers on theses boards who are interested in sharing their original fiction for other JCCers to read, subject to board posting rules.

    I tried to do that before, and was told there was no place for it, and that the owners of the boards could claim all writing and story ideas as their own and lose all rights to them if posted here. :/

    The TOS doesn't specify the owners' stance on copyrights for posts here (some message boards preemptively claim copyright), but as a basic precaution you absolutely should not post anything on any message board you might want to claim a proper copyright on.

    But they allow us to post fanfic, which is explicitly a copyright violation. That makes no sense whatsoever.

    You don't see how you could freely post something no one could hope to claim copyright on but shouldn't post something you might want to claim copyright on? There are no incompatibilities there.

    Edit: To reiterate, our TOS doesn't automatically claim copyright. But don't post something you might want to copyright or that you worry someone might attempt to copyright. That's just common sense no matter where you're posting.

    I could see such a thing working so long as you kept posts vague. It might not be able to offer much in the way of more tailored, specific advice, because of the lack of detail, but there’s still a lot of helpful suggestions that could be made if, for instance, someone said they were having trouble bringing a character to life. Without offering specifics about that character, other writers could come along and say what works for them when writing characters.

    It could also be a good support group, where writers talk about things like writer’s block, progress on their projects, publication strategies, etc.

    “He knew. He knew when he sent her a PM that just because a user had Natalie Portman as their avatar didn’t mean they were hot. But still, it was hard to internalize that, so...”

    Even my most depraved, obscene efforts wouldn’t come close Margaery’s most vanilla sexual activities.

    Man, I really need to watch Game of Thrones, because this Margaery character sounds like a swell gal.

    The spark of novelty had finally brightened her morning.

    When Lauren Harris had woke up that morning, there had been no indication that today would be different than any other, and indeed, the first half hour of her day unfolded like every other; she woke up, poured herself a bowl of cereal, and lamented the nothingness her life had become since she graduated high school.

    Then, as was her wont, she logged onto to the JCC—username: JediVixen—and was delighted to find that she had received her first ever private message, but her excitement was tempered as she opened her inbox and notice who the sender was: the JCC’s head administrator, DarthSapient. Had she done something wrong? The title of the message, at least, didn’t indicate as much; all it said was “Hey.”

    With a mixture of exhilaration and trepidation, she opened the message...

    Here’s the thing; when you have sex with two other people it’s a threesome. When you have sex with three other people it’s a foursome.

    there’s a reason I call sweet @Darth Punk and lovely @DarthIntegral handsome.

    Yeah, I thought it was a good idea too, but apparently there are some questions about whether the site’s owners would actually own the copyright to anything that we post.

    Actually, that leads me to a question. Would the site’s owners be able to claim copyright if our writing was all posted off-site, ie on blogs or writing sites etc? Anyone have any thoughts on that as a possible work around?

    What if we were to start a YJCC Google Classroom where we can post PDFs of our work?

    PM me your email address, I'll add you as a "Teacher"
    Then, anyone else wanting in we can add under "Teacher" accounts, so everyone can post without having to worry about someone else needing to do the "Assignment", and you can post a certain item and share it with everyone, only they won't be able to go back in and edit it.

    Preferably GMail addresses of course.
