Note this is not a complaint or comment about what goes on HERE - I think Lazeez has done a good job with making it pretty clear and easily accessible so that those we can find the guidelines.
Since my first story here is a fan fiction of Skyrim, and courtesy of the discussion on the forum where I mentioned 50 Shades of Gray being a fan-fic of Twilight, I did some digging. Apparently the story had been first posted on another site, one that is devoted to fan fictions. Being curious, I decided to see what that site was all about, and perhaps to consider posting my story there as well.
There was nothing on that site that encouraged me to do anything without actually logging in or creating an account. I used the search feature and finally found a forum post, which led me into another search feature.
They don't have actual links to their guidelines, simply include it in as a line in their terms of service. (Which I had to search for - again, not real user friendly.)
Finally found them and went, what? Really? Needless to say, that's one site that will NOT be seeing me use them, read the stories there, nor will I post there. (In case you're wondering, they will graciously allow M (for mature) stories to be posted, but those stories have to be vetted, warned about, and kept in their own little corner, and anything MA (Mature Adult - which could be considered a Hard R MPAA rating) is not allowed and will get you banned.)
After seeing this, I didn't even bother trying to read any of the stories there. I'm certain there's some good authors that post there. But I'll never know - the site ran me away.
All in all, seeing what they did at this other site makes me appreciate SOL and what we and our community here have even more so.
