And now for your semi-regular reminder of rules!!!1one Once again, do not submit more than one chapter of the same story to the queue before the previous chapter has been validated
. If you do, all chapters of that story in the queue will be deleted, often without even glancing at the story. Save us and yourself time and just submit one chapter, please. Slightly related, but please listen when the mods say things! We don't like repeating ourselves.
Another thing, since this seems to, er, be a common misconception lately. The mods do not act as betas for your stories.
If we send a no letter with a list of errors, they will not be all
of the errors. It is up to you to find everything and fix it. We are not going to hunt down every mistake for your convenience, so don't limit yourself to what we pointed out. We really shouldn't be denying the same chapter three or four times. It is also up to you to edit when asked to edit, not submit the same chapter unchanged or ignore e-mails sent about stories already on the archive. Being ignored makes us sad. :(
That's all for this month. Questions/comments/concerns
/praise for finally getting the queue down to zero!
