Here you will find all rules and regulations regarding the Writing Class section. These rules are set in place to ensure a pleasant and productive forum atmosphere. Breaking of these rules and forum rules alike will result in warnings or even in some cases, bans.

Writing:
When creating your pieces of writing be sure to keep in mind how appropriate it is for its audience and if it could offend any party. To ensure the quality of your work please adhere to the following regulations.

• Explicit material will be removed from your text.
• All content that contains inappropriate material such as gore, sexual references, and swears must have a label included in their title or post. (See below)
• All writings that contain spoilers must have a spoiler alert.
• The use of jokes or comments that belittle other religions, genders, races, nationalities or sexual preferences are not acceptable.

Replying:
When replying to a writer's work be sure keep in mind the quality and quantity of the work. The following rules are set in place to ensure a writer's work is commented in accordance to forums rules.

• Posts containing "too much to read" will be considered spam.
• The use of jokes or comments that belittle other religions, genders, races, nationalities or sexual preferences are not acceptable.
• Posts must not contain immature, denunciative, sarcastic, and/or ridiculing remarks.
• Offensive comments against any individual are prohibited.

Labeling:
This is a new system set in place to alert our members of how revealing a certain writing piece is. A label must be in either title or post if it runs along the guidelines of the following statements.

• All writings that give away the plot outcome of any piece of fiction are required to be labeled as a spoiler [S ].
• All writings that contain light sexual references, swearing/cussing, and mild graphic scenes must be labeled with an advisory [A].
• All writings that contain graphic gory scenes, sexual content, and/or coarse language must be labeled with a mature content warning. [M]

Important Note:
Mature Adult [MA] content is forbidden regardless of labeling. If you feel your work borders on the line of MA content it is advised that you submit your work to a moderator of this section for review. MA content will be removed and the user can be at risk for a warning depending on the severity.
