Story Validation Requests

Postby Sharp Shiny Pickle » August 20th, 2012, 9:41 am

Before you make a request for a moderator to look over your submission, please be sure that you can answer all of the following.

1. Have you looked over your story again since submitting it?
2. Does your story have proper formatting and spacing? We prefer that you have at least one space in between paragraphs, achieved by hitting ENTER twice between paragraphs or by beginning a paragraph with the <p> html tag. Also, please be sure to check that your formatting uploaded correctly by reviewing your submission under "Manage Stories."
3. Has a beta reader looked over it? This is not necessarily a requirement, but it is highly encouraged. If you don't have a beta reader, you can look for one here.
4. Are you certain it does not have any of the following errors?

If you are able to answer these all in the affirmative (excluding the beta-reader one), then you may reply to this post with the following form:

Code: Select all
[b]Username: [/b]
[b]Story Title: [/b]
[b]Date Posted or Approximate Time in the Queue: [/b]
[b]Acknowledgement of Answering the Questions Above: [/b]


Please note that we can't guarantee that your request will be processed right away. This will just help us prioritize which submissions we should try to look at first.

Username: Edge Feyera
Story Title: Fractured Unity (Arc 1 of the Series-to-be "Gift of the Protector"
Date Posted or Approximate Time in the Queue: 8/20
Acknowledgement of Answering the Questions Above: I acknowledge that my most recent chapter submission has complied with the standards set forth by the OP

As a brief aside, since I am submitting the third chapter to a series which has 30+ chapters complete (and ~300.000 words), will an author validation allow for me to post more than one submission at a time? And if that is the case, may I submit the next chapter immediately? Just curious since my series is rather long. It is 5 validated chapters each containing 5,000 words to receive author validation? Sorry I'm newbie here, but I have written quite a bit. :)

Thanks in advance!

When you're a validated author, your submissions bypass the queue and go straight to the Most Recent list without moderator approval. You're able to submit multiple stories/chapters.

Yes...that's what this thread is for...individual stories/chapters in the queue. (Basically...not author validations, but validations for individual pieces.)

Ok, because I do have a chapter that I need validated.

Username: littleart425
Story title: The Phantom of the Shinra Mansion (Chapter 2: Run!)
Date posted or Approximate time set in queue: 4/16/12 (something like that >_<)
Acknowledgement of Answering the Questions Above: I acknowledge that all the issues established by the OP above have been addressed upon the submission of this story

Did I type it in right? I mean, if it's just a chapter, should I just type the story title AND the chapter title? Or just the chapter title?

Nothing has been in the queue for anywhere near that long. The oldest items in the queue are from 8/30.

For story chapters, we just put the title of the chapter in the story title, right? Along with the date it was posted?

The queue lists story title, then chapter title like this: "Story:Chapter," then "Author," then "Rating," then "Fandom," then "Date." (Each set of quotation marks indicates a separate column.)

The reason we need the the story title, the date, and your username is that the queue lists by the date of the chapter, that some people use different usernames on the forum and site, and that some people don't name their chapters. There are currently over a dozen chapters in the queue called "Chapter 1." If you had, say, two different stories in there but wanted us to give one priority, but both had chapters in the queue called "Chapter 1," it wouldn't be much help to just ask us to look at "Chapter 1."
