WELCOME to the official protest page of the petition! Keep an eye out, everyone, for immediate action will be taken!
ATTENTION interactive story readers/writers. Interactive stories get deleted because they are against fanfiction guidelines. This petition is to show Fanfiction.net that we want this guideline revoked or rewritten. Sign up if you want interactive stories legalized! PM Demigodgirl1000!
We're teenagers, not dumb. We can figure out what is appropriate and what is inappropriate by ourselves, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I AM 'Unleashing my imagination'. Or at least I'm trying to. Fanfiction is supposed to be a place where I can write whatever I want to, read whatever I want to, and review anything I want to. Who are you to say we can't submit our creatively-made OC's to a writer who may have trouble coming up with her own?
This is Panem. We are the rebels, the Districts, the 13. You are Snow, the Capitol. WEWANTOURSYOTS is our Mockingjay.
Remember what happened to the Capitol?
Don't shoot yourself in the head. Don't lose site visitors to this. Give us our SYOC/T's. Or you very well might go the same way as the Capitol.

It's so unfair that they're taking away the right to right interactive stories! Why now? Why when there are so many SYOT's ?!? Fan fiction should not mess with hunger games fans! We will fight for the right to write our stories!!!!
Fanfiction, how exactly can we "unleash our imagination," if you're oppressing

I love interactives, and I own one. I'm devastated to see FanFiction do this to us, and I won't stand it!

People have poured hours into those stories, only to have them deleted. There is nothing wrong with people giving tributes. It's no different than sending them via PM, and it ensures readers

I'll help your petition as OC's deserve to be in fanfics!

Whats the big deal? You say you want us to be creative, then don't stop us from writing what we want!
It's unfair they don't even bother telling you before hand, what if you have deleted that story and you wanted to save it?
SYOTS/SYOCS improve people's writing. It takes skill to take a brief description of a character and make that character come alive; not to mention adding a story to it. Why not try reading one of those stories? I bet you just report them for fun, don't you. It's disgusting how you just want to ruin someone's hard work like that. It's rude and unjustified and I won't stand for it. In fact, no, WE WON'T STAND FOR IT! WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED! Mark my words Capitol of if you do not let us have our interactives or at least justify your vendetta against them, you better listen out for the whistle of a Mockingjay. When you hear that, you'll know we're coming. SYOTS/SYOCS FOREVER!
INTERACTIVE STORIES MUST BE KEPT UP! WE SPEND HARD WORK ON THOSE AND PEOPLE HAVE A GREAT TIME HELPING! FFN, LET US KEEP INTERACTIVE STORIES PLZ!
My SYOT got taken down, I worked really hard on it!
I may not write these kinds of stories but I love reading and participating so it'd be a shame to see them get deleted.

I think that it was highly unfair for fanfiction to sudenly delete all SYOT's
SYOT's also help to boost your confidence and give you a chance to recieve

I love writing for the 96 characters in my story. It really challenges me and my creativity and plot development. Please don't delete more stories!

...WE JOINED THIS SITE FOR A REASON!!!! They take down people's hard work and theirgreat writing skills. Cus when they do something like this, it destroyspeople's dreams of probably becoming the best writer in the WORLD!!!! But if the Admin. destroy their dreams, they're never going to get the chance!!! And not to mention the fact that they give the Admin. position to people that don't even CARE and just delete stories... One of my friends on here had an SYOT and it was deleted. ...This is exactly like the Hunger Games... Only, we don't have our Mockingjay that will kill the Iron Grip that makes the rules.

It's stupid that they take the stories down, they are just as much a part of the fanfiction archives as the next story, take them down, and well over half of the site's stories will disappear, let's stop this before it really starts.
As much as I support and love this site, if this guideline rule is not revoked and/or rewritten, I can assure you that plenty of your members will disappear one after another. And slowly, this site will crumble down to the point of non-existence in a chain reaction of rebellion against the once beloved founders. This rule limits our creativity, and honestly, I cannot even think of a reason this rule is fair. All fanfiction is fanfiction, correct? This includes SYOTs, which allowed us an excellent opportunity to expand our circle of readers and even friends. We love our SYOTs, and we cannot have them here, don't worry. We will be more than happy to leave this corrupt and biased part of the internet. And to my fellow rebels, I'm making a video to send to staff, and if you would like to be apart of it, all you have to do is send me a picture of you doing Rue's salute (three fingers extended) at my email ( supermegafreakingawesomeperson @ rocketmail .com )
Let the Games begin, let them begin for real.

"Unleash your Imagination". Is the main headline for fanfiction yet hundreds
200. t00 lazy to log in
I've heard people say that they deleted stories that broke rules, but they are lying. They deleted any story with the word 'SYOT' in it. Completely blindly. Without checking at all. A story I was in asked for characters via PM, put the form on her profile and had several content chapters. The summary said SYOT and therefore the story was deleted. They told us that we had to follow certain guidelines and deleted the stories anyways. We don't need these false ideas anymore. What's the use if you still get rid of these stories? I'm joining this petition because fanfiction is being utterly ridiculous. Imagination? Imagination is a figmant of the imagination with the way they're going about it. You mess with Hunger Games fans, your going to get a rebellion. You mess with Percy Jackson fans, you're going to get a war. You mess with Harry Potter fans, you will get a revolution. We fight for what we believe in, we were taught by the best to do that. And right now, I believe that change is needed.
By taking down SYOTs and STOY Guides, many authors have not only lost hours, days, and even weeks of hard work, but also incredibly valuable resources. The true indignity of this situation, though, is the fact that there are still obvious trolls all over this site that Staff has done NOTHING about. An SYOT is not going to hurt anyone! Ten SYOTs will not cause problems. SYOTs are not spam! Deal with the trolls and flamers and let us have our SYOTS or at least warn us before we get locked out of our accounts.
This is absolutely unbelievable! I can't believe fanfiction is doing this. This is stupid. Why do they have to do this? It makes no sense! There's no harm in it! This is f*cked up. This is our last chance to change this? "You never foget the face(account) of your last hope."
Admins are the Capital, we are the districts. I poured days of hard work into my SYOT just to see it all deleted. I loved writing it, and now, i have nothing to do because that was my only story, and i really cared about it. So here is what i think is going on: "Fire is catching. If we burn, you WILL burn with us!!: -Katniss Everdeen, MOckingjay. Bring it on, Capitol.
212. Teh Troll
First of all, it's not right of them to dump the many hours of work that people put into stories right down the drain, and second, the readers of these SYOT's really look forward to seeing what happens next!
How horrible I don't understand how they see it as breaking the rules when the submitters are actually giving their CONSENT to use their characters in the stories.
Me: Why are interactive stories not allowed? Why can't they just get their own section?
Them: One of the goal of this site to help people to become better writers. Besides, a properly written story will present a very enjoyable read and truly "unleash the imagination".
Me: Hello, I must have emailed support ten times and I still haven't gotten a response. I am starting a petition to have SYOCs legalized, or all least given their own section. We as a community love FF, especially our SYOTs, and many people lost hours of work when they were all deleted. How many names must I get to prove to the owner that we want this change? Or better yet, as the representative of the SYOTS community, how may I contact Xing Li so he can hear our thoughts on the subject?
Them: If the authors had done so via the Forum or the Communities, that would have been okay. Just leave the story section for stories.
What I should have responded with:When exactly were we told this before you deleted EVERYTHIG? SYOTS are stories too!
If you agree that this makes no sense, PM me and support the petition
