WELCOME NEW USER TO THE JEDI COUNCIL FAN FICTION BOARDS The JC FanFic boards are a community to share fan fiction in an accepting and friendly environment. Here you can post Star Wars fan fiction, read Star Wars fan fiction and socialize with your fellow readers and writers. Basically, it’s all about having fun. This Forum is for Star Wars FanFic only, if you would like to read or post non-Star Wars Fan Fic, please check out the NSWFF section of the boards. This is merely a brief introduction to this forum. The “FanFic” FAQ is where you can find the rules and policies of this forum. The Board-Wide rules and Terms of Service still apply here as well. WHO ARE WE? We are the mods Briannakin and mavjade. We are here to answer any question or concern you may have, so feel free to start a conversation (also known as a PM or private message) with us. Yes, we're also here to enforce the rules. Moderators can be identified by their name in colors and a title that says "manager" or "moderator". The mods of a specific forum can be found in the top right of that forum. You can find the current mods online on the main page of the Jedi Council Forums on the right hand side under "Staff Online Now". Administrators are the heads of the forums overall. If you have an issue and don't feel comfortable contacting a mod, you are free to contact an admin. The current Head Admin is JoinTheSchwarz, the other admins are GrandAdmiralJello and LAJ_FETT WHAT CAN I POST AND WHERE CAN I POST IT? Here in the Fan Fiction and Writing Resource forum, you can find many social threads, discussions on writing and reading fanfic in general, fanfic indices, character discussion threads, and even prompts and writing challenges. It is basically a place to seek assistance with writing and reading of Star Wars Fanfic as well as socialize with fellow writers and readers. Here you will also find important board information from your mods. Please review the Fanfic FAQ before beginning any new thread, but here are some pre-existing threads you may find helpful: the Writer’s Desk - If you have any question at all about your specific story, please post it there. If you are looking for a "Beta Reader" (an editor), you can do so in the Beta Reader Index. The Fan Fiction sub-forum is where you can find all the stories and where you can post your own fan fiction. All fanfic is posted here, divided into Before the Saga, The Saga and Beyond the Saga. Only Fan Fiction stories can be posted here. Please note the "Stickied Threads" at the top of both forums. Important threads such as this welcome thread, the FAQ and new rules will be "stickied" at the top for easy access and awareness. HOW DO I POST A NEW STORY? First, go to Fan Fiction and click Post New Thread. Type in your title and chose the 'era' tag by pressing the arrow beside no prefix. Next write or copy and paste your story (or the first chapter) in the body. It's that simple. Many writers like to use something like the following to give their readers more information about their story: Title: Author(s): Timeframe: Characters: Genre: Keywords: Summary: Notes: WHY ARE SOME POSTS CUT OFF AND WHY DO SOME LINKS DON'T WORK? Relatively long story short, in March 2012 we moved hosts. When we moved, posts got truncated after 10,000 characters and all our page addresses were changed. Our volunteers are working on fixing both issues, but there have been many setbacks. HOW DO I GET READERS/COMMENTS ON MY STORY? We've made a whole post with tips that is further down this thread, click HERE to go to that post. We hope this answers any initial questions. Please check out the Fanfic FAQ or PM us if you have further questions. Thank you, Bri and Mav Note - We've opened this thread to replies, if someone is more comfortable asking a question here rather than via PM, that is fine.
