    It goes without saying that all the normal site rules apply. Here, a few important rules will be highlighted.

    No Spam or Multiposts
    Keep posts relevant to the thread they are in. Unless you are adding a new section to your story in the Fanfiction Library, don't post multiple times in the same thread. You can edit your previous post and add in new content instead of making another post.​
    When updating a story, do not create a new thread for the new chapters. Although you could make a new post in the story's thread with the new chapter, it is recommended that you simply edit the first post and add the new chapter in there. That way, comments from other users will not be mixed in with the chapters of your story and it will be easier for others to read the story uninterrupted. Posting a reply to the thread announcing that a new chapter has been edited in does not count as spam.​
    Respect Others
    Do not bash or insult other users. Period. If somebody else is not following this rule, then report them. Don't respond to an insult with another insult; just let the moderators handle it.​
    If you want to show your respect for one of the authors, then please tell them how much you like their story by replying to the thread! This keeps the story up on the front of the Fanfiction Library section and also prevents it from falling into the Archives due to inactivity.​
    No NSFW Content
    Under no circumstances is any member to post material that is "Not Safe For Work" (NSFW). This includes, but is not limited to, links to or images of pornographic material as well as suggestive language. A "Mature" rating is synonymous with NSFW.​
    No Plagiarism
    Under no circumstances are you to post the work of someone else and claim it as your own. Plagiarism is blatant theft and will not be tolerated.​
    Where Do I Post Stuff?
    Lake Valor's Fanfiction Library takes fanfiction. The story is not required to be directly related to Pokémon, so you can post stories from any fandom here. Please tag your thread appropriately. Threads can be tagged directly beneath the title when creating them or using the site's "Use Full Editor" option. Original fiction also goes into the Fanfiction Library.​
    Please note that the Fanfiction Library is for stories, and is not a place to post links to your story on another site. You may provide a link to the story on another site along with the story itself, but you may not post the link alone.​
    The Writing Prompts forum is where you can go to participate in our weekly Writing Prompt and Mad Libs events. You can also submit your own writing prompts to help others get story ideas if you want to.​

    If you have further questions or need clarification, feel free to send me or @[member=Gengar's Grin] a PM. We're happy to help with anything, big or small.
