Author has written 2 stories for Forgotten Realms.
1- Spell check all stories and poems. There is no excuse for not doing this. If you do not have a word processor that has the spell checking feature, use a search engine such as Google.Com to find one.

2- Proofread all entries for grammar and other aspects of writing before submission. "Hot off the press" content is often riddled with errors. No one is perfect but it is the duty of the writer to perform to the best of his/her ability.

3- Respect the reviewers. Not all reviews will strictly praise the work. If someone rightfully criticizes a portion of the writing, take it as a compliment that the reviewer has opted to spend his/her valuable time to help improve your writing.

4- Everyone here is an aspiring writer. Respect your fellow members and lend a helping a hand when they need it. Like many things, the path to becoming a better writer is often a two way street.

5- Use proper textual formatting. For example: using only capital letters in the story title, summary, or content is not only incorrect but also a disregard for the language itself.

Sound familiar? It's the Fanfiction.Net code of conduct. Remember it well, lest I am forced to remind you of its existence.

He Who Hunts’ Top 10 Pet Peeves:

10- Screenplay format.
9- Descriptions that read like something from a MUD.
8- Fics written in the second person.
7- “The whole point of fanfiction is to rewrite the story.”
6- Canonically impossible slash. I don’t care what your arguments are, Severus/Harry is NOT happening.
5- Canonically impossible ‘ships. I don’t care what your arguments are, Gandalf/Arwen is NOT happening.
4- Mary Sues, Marty Stus and Avatars.
3- Christian Sues who try to convert people to their religion. Fascism is bad! Bad, I say!
2- Gothic Sues who are not Gothic.
1- Author’s Notes which serve no purpose but to flame the reviewers.

In order to eliminate the flames on my review boards, I will no longer be accepting anonymous reviews. If you have a bone to pick with me, send me an email. It works now.
