And author validation is open again. How this works:
-You must have at least five posted stories and/or chapters and a total of at least 5,000 words written. If any of your submissions have been denied in the past two months, or if it hasn’t yet been two months since you last requested validation, you can’t ask again.
-Author validations will be stricter than story validations – it’s the difference between a lifelong pass and a one-time thing.
-Request in this thread on the forums, in the announcement comments, or e-mail one of us. Make sure you include your screenname, and that you check PMs (on the forums) and/or that you have a working e-mail address associated with your account so that we can get back to you.
-Two of the mods will decide whether or not you will be validated. If they are in agreement, then that decision will stand (you will be validated or your validation request will be rejected). If not, then a third mod will come in as tiebreaker.
-You will be contacted privately with the decision, including suggestions for improvement. If you aren’t validated, you can ask again in a couple months.
