Pokémon Fan Fiction Rules
Golden Rule to follow: Anything up to PG13 or a Teen rating (13-15) is fine.

If you happen to be a new author: I highly recommend reading this (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5640). Also, it would help if you read some other fan fiction by the other well-known authors.

1. When posting a Fan Fiction story, please make sure that the story is Pokémon related. All other stories should be placed in the Other Fan Fiction and Roleplay board. All formats of fan fiction are welcome here, whether it be narrative, script (often discouraged, but still allowed), or poetry.

2. Please try to keep vulgar and offensive language in your stories to a minimum. Post a warning beforehand, and please post a rating in your title if you feel the need to do so. Nothing higher than a PG-13 or Teen (13-15) rating is allowed.

3. No posting in someone's story thread unless the author has allowed permission to do so. Otherwise, all comments, suggestions, and questions about other member's stories should be posted in the Fan Fiction Feedback.

4. Do not keep re-visiting your story so your story's "view" number increases and solemnly receiving attention for your story to be reading. I'm sure people will eventually read your story.

5. Only constructive criticism and good reviews are allowed. Go here (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6561) for the reviewing policy.

6. Try posting more than a 3 sentence Paragraph in chapters or between parts.

7. If sexuality is present in a fic for no reason at all, it's not allowed. If the sexuality is something like in the PG or PG-13 range, try not to be too graphic with it.

8. Do not link your stories. How hard is it to copy and paste?

9. Have fun writing!

I hope these rules will maintain the board clean and give it a good reputation as we try to avoid problems.
