CU Administration

Welcome. This thread is for CU members only.

Please refrain from posting in this thread if you are not a member. Non-members posting here risk a temporary or even a permanent ban.

Rules for CU members:

1) Three review limit:

If a member reviews a story and brings it to Siv that counts as one review. If two other members followed up with reviews of their own that would count as reviews two and three. After that, members should not review and simply report the rule-breaking story.

Please try to check if a story already has three CU reviews so we don't appear to be ganging up on someone.

*Note: additional instructions about this rule may be added by mods in particular posts.

2) Stories should only be posted in SiV by members if:

  • The author replies poorly.
  • You find that you are blocked and could not review
  • They update it and ignore your review.
  • They update other works.

*Note: if the author doesn't reply or update, then the reviewer should just monitor quietly and see if the author eventually update said story or another story on their account. There are no time limits as to how long one can wait till they can bring it in here. We do not want our members to be eager beavers in bringing the group in on a story.

Feel free to PM any of the mods if you have any questions or let us know about your doubts in the Q&A thread.

Thanks.

Oh, a shiny new thread. :)

Don't mind me if I post two stories:

Story: Reencuentros Author: TruMar-JC Fandom: Dragon Ball Z.

Author lifts all her dialogue directly from the Spanish dub of the Parent Trap (Lindsay Lohan version of the film). Author updated and claimed the dialogue in her story was different even when it's not. Story is in Spanish so report only.

Deleted

Story: Harleen Author: JasiaVu Fandom: Batman.

Compliant

This one is in an incorrect category. It should be in the Batman Begins/Dark Knight category at the movies section instead of at the Comics one. It's an easy fix but the author refused to move the story to where it should be and updated. Some sexual content but I don't think it reaches the MA level.

R/R on Yuna's.

Story: Wonder Girl and Spoiler's Blog Author: WondergirlRules. Fandom: Young Justice. Violation: Interactive.

It's one of the YJ bloggers gaggle. Apparently they thought we had forgotten about them and reuploaded their interactive "blog" one more time.

Deleted

Story: Entrevista a Vegeta Author: NeblimK Fandom: Dragon Ball Z Violation: Original work.

Story is an interview with the voice actor who plays Vegeta. It mentions Dragon Ball only in passing and can be considered an original work the way it is written. Author was aggressive and refused to change it so the character is the one interviewed instead of a voice actor. Spanish story so report only.

Story: An Incredibly Shitty Situation Author: doomSaucier Fandom: Homestuck - "you" based story. Author plainly refuses to change it despite fully understanding it's again the rules.

I didn't point it out to them but as you can see, the story also violates the "no cursing in the title" rule as well.

Another Batman one.

Story: The Melancholy of Harley Quinn Author: Harley Eve. Fandom: Batman

Incorrect category. This one should be in the games section for Arkham Asylum/City instead of in the Comics one. Another quick and easy fix but the author has ignored my reviews so perhaps a couple more ones is all she needs to move her stories (she has another Batman fic in the incorrect category) to the correct section.

Story: Letters to a German Author: Mizu-Chii42 Fandom: Hetalia Violation: Interactive.

The authortried to fix it by only getting letters by pm, but he is still quoting them and replying in-story without adding plot and trying to get away with it. Definitively interactive.

Goody add-on - the above author is a real drip too.

Story: Masquerade Author: crazylego Fandom: Homestuck - "you" based story. Author claimed "others have done it" while saying they wouldn't fix it.

Author knows and doesn't care because they feel second based writing is perfectly acceptable despite knowing the rules say no. They also claim how my review hurt their feelings before daring me to actually report them because they don't care.

Story: It's Such A Small World

Author: cutevampkitten03

Songfic. I couldn't review this because I was blocked (the author in question has already broken the rules before.), so a few warnings might be enough.

Edit: Author also has at least one more rulebreaking fic. In the one beneath this one, she said, "lol, broke some rules here", so she's clearly aware but simply does not care.

Song lyrics removed - compliant
