What to do add when posting your stories here on the RU

Add Warning:
Warning!    You must be 18 or over to read these stories of rape and non consensual sex. If you do not like such stories, please turn back. I don't promote rape or non-consent sex. This is only a story, fiction, if you do not understand the difference between reality and fantasy, read no more. Rape is a heinous crime and the penalty is many years in prison. Anyone who commits rape are despised everywhere. But fantasies are all right so long as no one is hurt.


Make Sure To Title Your Story

Make Sure To Add The Authors Name (even if it is your own work, and especially if it was written by another, if the author is unknown, please say so)
 
Please Use Story Codes
Codes can be found by following this link, http://ravishu.com/forums/index.php?topic=2721.0
 
Suggested
Short synopsis of story

Other
If you wish you may add in your homepage or email for feedback or requests.  If you choose to do so, we suggest that you use caution and common sense with regards towards giving anyone personal contact information.

Thank You Admin Team

We ask that disclaimers be posted at the beginnings of all stories (see sample above).  Also in the interests of (relatively) good taste, we ask that all participants in a story about forced sex be sexually mature.

Stories that include bestiality, scatt, piss, incest, snuff, gore, and under age 18 should have a warning regarding content at the beginning of the story so that persons with certain sensitivities can avoid them.

I would especially like to draw attention to rule #8

So much oppression in our culture is based on shame about sex: the oppression of women, of cultural minorities, oppression in the name of the (presumably asexual) family, oppression of sexual minorities. We are all oppressed. We have all been taught, one way or another, that our desires, our bodies, our sexualities, are shameful. What better way to defeat oppression than to get together in communities and celebrate the wonders of sex?

Other ideas:

 If you have a long story, you might find it won't fit in the space provided by the software, although I have adjusted the post size to the maximum the software will allow.  In this case the story will need to be broken up into sections, or chapters.

I prefer writers use the "reply" function after their first post and continue with as many "replies" to the first post as are needed to complete the posting of the story.

I notice that some writers start a new thread for each chapter of a story, but this is awkward for the reader as it forces them to hunt through the story boards for the chapters.

Thanks!

I was interested in this link, as I don't know the story codes myself.  And I failed to use them on the first story post I did but would like to include them on future posts.  However, the link is bad and / or I'm not a member there.  Can I get a key to the code another way?

 Undecided I have written a few that I have posted on my MySpace page as Blogs?
I also have at least one that's been uploaded to rppstories.com I don't class myself as n author as I wouldn't say I have a true grasp of things like punctuation and phrasing?
Are there any pre-requisites for posting stories, obviously I'll go over them again and try and clean them up if I think they're a bit messy to read but I wondered if there's anythnig else I need to be doing or looking for?  Undecided

NOTE ON MAXIMUM POST SIZE:

There's a hard limit to how big a field can be in the database, and it's nothing we can 'fix'.  If a story is too long, then it will be truncated (cut off) when you hit the POST or SAVE button.  Additionally, some things don't store as you'd expect.  Accented international characters take between 4 to 8 bytes per letter, a line break is 6 characters, and several of the common punctuation symbols take up 5 bytes per symbol (& is stored as '& amp;' for instance), limiting the total you can post.

The only way around the size restriction per post is to split large stories up.

For rough numbers, if you got 90% of it intact after hitting POST the first time, then all you have to do is split it in about half.  The 90% of the story you saw was where MySQL/SMF truncated the rest of it.  That's the hard limit for length.  If you only see about 30% of the story after posting, then you need to split it into 3 or 4 parts/pieces.

UPDATE:  the maximum post size is 65534 TOTAL characters (2e16 minus 1).  If you save it as a text file, that will show as 63.9 KB in Windows Explorer.  Again, the ampersand and some other punctuation characters take up 5 bytes, and international accented characters take up 4 to 8 bytes, so the real limit is something less than 65534 characters. 

If you can't see the character count, then save it as a text file and check the size with Windows Explorer (not IE, the My Computer thing) and if you don't have details shown, then right-click on the file and hit PROPERTIES.  It will show you the actual byte count and the KB size.  Make sure it's under 60K (60,000 bytes) to account for the extra room needed for line breaks and punctuation, and all will be well.

Hope that helps!  If I'm not clear, let me know and I'll try to explain it differently.

Unfortunately, hitting the PREVIEW button does not tell you if it will truncate the post, as it has not stored it in the forum database at that point.  The only way to know for sure is to check the bottom of the post just after you post it.  If it's truncated, then you need to split it into two or more posts.

Looks good to me.  I've actually been pretty lax on any of these "rule" thingies. 

Besides the disclaimer, it is also a good idea to add an extra waring if you have an element in your story that might really freak some readers out - like under 18, beasty sex, shit eating, etc.

Yes, the 12 people standard is a standard test of  "obscenity laws". 

We also have a standard disclaimer on the entrance portal.  I suppose if some jerk government official wanted to go after sites like ours because of our content they still could.  But so far the only "story" site they've gone after (and won) was one that charged money for the privilege of reading the stories there. 

Forums like ours are also given a good amount of leeway because the administrators and owners are generally not considered responsible for the content.  We might get shut down (most likely by the web-host) but I've never heard of any prosecutions.  The nature of bulletin boards and forums naturally lead to freedom of speech protections.

Explanation:  Oklahoma, like many states, defines "pornography" as "anything that would upset 12 normal people".  And the prosecution gets to pick the people.

But where does Oklahoma find twelve normal people to begin with?

what the heck... I wrote an entire THING here and it disappeared and is not here at all.  no way am I gonna write it all again either.

mumble... grumble...

and I was just trying to find someone to explain things to Me like about obscenity trials (the most obscene things in the entire world are war and prison and vaccinating children to give them cancer and autism) and about how one goes about posting a story in the first place, let alone putting in the story codes... how one becomes a sophomore or junior or otherwise changes status, where one goes to find out about all these things... and oh boy, how to interpret the column heads in the members list area...

and how is it that 'lois' put in a single thread both that all participants in a story about rape be sexually mature and yet that if there is anyone under

I dunno about these things... I just do in real life and write for cyberlife and the details belong to somebody else...

grumble... mumble... won't even let a Man.... grrrrrrrrrrrrr.... umble.... mmmmmumble...
