Because I can't find my orginal thread (and if one of you lovelies DO find it, let me know so it can be locked so we start anew) We'll start fresh: Adendum: Dec 11 2005: Adendum 2: Feb 2007 Looks like it's that time again - suggestions for topics welcome! Story Pimping - that is, plugging of a work you feel suits the discussion IS ALLOWED IN MODERATION. Remember our comunity sensativities, and if you are willing to share via PM please say so! [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/12747361/p1]Link to Old thread[/link] Teh Ground rules: In this thread we will be discussing the handleing of *omnious music* MATURE THEMES Sex, and Drugs and Rock and Roll - No I mean... Well yes, they will come up BUT in keeping with our TOS, it can't be gratuitous, or over teh limits... SO with that Cavet; THIS THREAD WILL DEAL WITH MATURE THEMES IN FAN FIC Historicly, it's been a good place to discuss how to present thigs of this nature without going over the line, and yes, it has and can be done here in our forums. If you don't like it, DO NOT POST. So, renewing the thread we'll go back to the first topic - you can PM me with suggestions. From the Old thread: As was brought up in the 'gay fanfic' thread, there are a lot of authors who like to deal with things that run a bit deeper than what we are initially shown by GL and co. This thread is a place to discuss these more mature ISSUES. 1) This is NOT a place to disscuss the forum standards, including but not limited to: Limits of DEPICTION of such things as sexual content, violance levels or homosexuality at TF.N We all know what they are (if not, please reaquaint yourself with the FAQ.) 2) "It doesn't belong here at TF.N (or anywhere else)." The stories themselves might not be alowed here, but Mature disscussion of said same topics is fine. If you don't like/read it fine, but please respect those that do. Prolatising and flaming will get you banned here just as easily as any other thread. 3) No LINKING of off site material that exceeds the limits such as places that have Same sex fan fic, NC-17 or other content. This would be a violation of TF.N's TOS and is prohibited. People can PM you for relevant links. 4) If you are posting in this thread, I assume you are mature enough to post reasonable and well though out things as apposed to "I like stories that show everything *giggle*" (You get the idea.) If you dislike this topic of discussion, please hit the 'back' button now. PM me with new Topics of discussion, and if they aren't far beyond the pale, we'll open them up to discussion. Thanks.
