Format Rules/Story Entries

From All The Fallen Stories

Choose a Section

Alright, so the first thing that you should do when adding a story to the site is to give people a way to get to the story, right? To do that, first choose the section that best fits your story, or where you plan for your story to go. The choices are:

  • Loli Stories - For loli and straight shota stories.
  • Shota Stories - For other shota stories.
  • Furry Stories - For furry stories, including loli and shota furries.
  • Meta Stories - For stories that don't fit into the above, or fall into more than one category.

The Entry

Once you are on the proper page, you can add your story to the list that is featured there. Do so alphabetically. If your story name begins with an article (A, An, or The); alphabetize it by the second word of your title.The format for placing your story in the list is as follows:

|-
| Story || Pages || Codes || Permission || Notes

As you can see, the list has five points of information to display. These are as follows:

Story

This should be a link to your story. The simplest link that you can make to your story is just your story name, surrounded by double braces [[My Story]]. If your story name is very long, you might want to make the link something shorter. You can do this by using a vertical bar | after the short form of your story name, then typing the full story name[[My Story|My Story About a Bunch of Stuff]]. Do not use the same link name as another story. If you make a link, and the link is not red, then the name has already been taken, and you will need to choose another name.

Pages

This tells readers how many pages your story contains. The easiest way to do this is to use {{PAGESINCAT:My Story}}, where My Story is the link name (not the long name, if you chose to use one) of your story. This will automatically update the number of pages as more are added.

Codes

This should be a list of story codes that warn the reader of the kinds of content that they can find in your story. Story codes can be found on the Story Codes Page.

Permissions

This should indicate whether your story is open for collaboration or not. To keep things uniform, please use one of the following phrases (regardless of permissions, formatting errors which make the story problematic for the site will always be allowed to be edited):

  • Open - For stories that anyone can edit as they wish. Add it by using the following code:
{{Open}}
  • Rules - For stories that are open, but require specific editing rules. The entry should be a link to the page with your editing rules. Add it by using the following code:
{{Rules|Rules=My Story/Rules}}
where My Story/Rules is the link to your page with the editing rules on it.
  • Ask - For stories that may be edited if someone asks you for permission first. The entry should be a link to your talk Page. Add it by using the following code:
{{Ask|User=Username}}
where Username is your username.
  • Ask Rules - You can also combine the previous two by putting both up, thusly:
{{Ask|User=Username}} {{Rules|Rules=My Story/Rules}}
  • Errors Only - For stories that you don't want edited except for spelling and grammar mistakes. Add it by using the following code:
{{Errors}}
  • Spelling Only - For stories that you don't want edited except for spelling mistakes, but don't want someone correcting your grammar. Add it by using the following code:
{{Spelling}}
  • Closed - For stories that you don't want edited. Add it by using the following code:
{{Closed}}
  • WIP Do not edit yet. - For stories that aren't ready to be edited, but will eventually be allowed to be edited. Add it by using the following code:
{{WIP}}

Notes

For any other information you think the reader needs that doesn't fall into the other categories.
