Obviously it wouldn't kill Doctor Who or our love for it, BUT this is what it will do if it goes through in two days time. SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Acts. Not only will the Royal Navy of cyber space search far and wide across the seven seas of the internet going after cyber pirates to shoot canon balls at, they'll be coming for us as well. That is, all forms of fandom. In other words, if this thing goes through, fan art, fan fiction, fan sites (ie this one right here), fan made videos, roleplaying, etc. will be made illegal and all content deleted. Yes, my dear fellow Whovians, there is a hypothetical army of Cybermen coming at us with every passing second, arms outstretched, droning "DELETE DELETE DELETE" and this time the Doctor's not here to help. BUT if we've learned anything from our favorite Time Lord, it's that there is always hope no matter how impossible the obstacles set before us may seem. So, my friends, break out those sonics and brainy specs, straighten your bowties and get ready for a fight. Here's what we're going to do. A petition is up to stop this nonsense and it is our duty to help out as most of us here will undoubtedly be SOPA's target if we should, Rassilon forbid, fail. Sign it here petitions.whitehouse.gov/petit… . We can do this! The future of our fandom relies on your vote! Don't let SOPA criminalize you for sharing the love of fandom online.

May the light of Omega and the wisdom of Rassilon guide you through all of time and space (and everywhere inbetween),

Guidelines

***Guidelines for General Fanfiction Folder***

:bulletred: No intercourse, this folder is for the general audience so not sexual references that would be too crude for the show itself which means also, no intimate description of either male or female's certain attributes thank you. Nothing Jack Harkness himself would blush at; moderation is advised just like in the show.

:bulletred: Mild swearing is fine, in context and in character, but no very foul language because this is the general audience, which means that kids could read this. Even every once in a while in the show, the characters will say things like 'hell' or 'damn,' and also in the BBC books, but not the f-word or anything associated with it.

:bulletred: Blood should be moderated as to the limit of what they would have in the BBC series, because they do tend to have more blood than the series. The blood is read, not scene and the books can be fairly graphic. For example: in the story of Pest Control, a character gets her leg graphically crushed in front of Donna, shattered and bloody. Let's just not make anyone gag, and if it does have a fair amount of blood in it, please state that in the description of the story for those of light hearts to be wary.

:bulletred: Scary imagry is fine, go for it, that's what Doctor Who does, gives the scary images without being the Saw series, but as with blood, please give warning in the description if you think it's too graphic or the themes are too for a younger audience who is unawares when they start reading.

:bulletred: Have fun writing, the funny scenes and the dark scenes, and we'll have fun sorting through the stories. XD



***Mature Fanfiction****

:bulletred: Intercourse is allowed, but not encouraged. If your story much contain sex, please do not have it has the theme of the story and do not make it overly explicit. It should be a scene to add to the fanfiction, not a story in itself.

:bulletred: Swearing is fine, this is the mature section so most readers will be ready for it, though it is still discouraged to use highly explicit lanuage that even Jack wouldn't use. Moderate it to something in Torchwood.

:bulletred: Blood to the extent of gory is fine, as long as it is not completely illogical or over-the-top, but all but the most extreme of the sanguinary will be fine.

:bulletred: Scary images will not be an issue unless they mess with one of the other previous rules for the section.

:bulletred: Finally, please make sure that there is a maturity warning on all mature fanfictions applied, at least a mild warning for the all but the most extreme, stateing why that fanfiction is listed as mature, such as blood, sexual intentions of the characters, profuse swearing, etc.

Cool, thanks :)

A couple of things. First, I submitted two different portraits of Twelve a couple of days ago. I tried to submit them to the Twelve fan art folder, but I couldn't, so they wound up in the "Featured" folder instead. Is there any way I or you could put them where they belong?

The other thing is I have four fanfictions I want to submit (actually three, since two of them are part of the same story), but the Doctor/River pairing is very prominent in them. They aren't full-blown romantic stories exactly, save for two, but I'm not sure whether to submit them to the "General Fanfiction" folder or the "Doctor In Love" one. The two more overtly romantic ones have kissing, flirting, and other such things couples do (but no sex scenes, so I know they don't need to be in the "Mature Fanfiction" folder), and the third one has a bit of kissing & flirting, too, but is more of an adventure story. My question is, which of the two folders I mentioned above is the most appropriate place to put the two more romantic stories, and which one would be the best place for the more adventure-y one?

Let me know, thanks :].

I just now manually switched the folder it was put in, don't worry, the featured folder is for all art and then I copy them to other folders as well. And yeah, your fanfictions should be entered in the General Fanfiction folder, the Mature Fanfiction folder is for XXX rated stories. I wanted to make it easy for readers to find what they want. Let me know if you have anymore issues and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. <3
