Supernatural Thursday Nights - Information Post

Supernatural Thursday Nights is a community dedicated to filling in those lonely Thursday evenings that have no new episodes (SUMMER HIATUS), we want all the fans to have someplace to go to feed their Winchester-itis until the next new episode comes our way (SEPTEMBER).

COMMUNITY RULES:

1. Absolutely and under no circumstance are you to FLAME an author who contributes to this community. If you are caught doing so you will be banned from here immediately, no warnings, no questions asked.

Everyone who participates in this community is expected to show respect to everyone else. If you do not *like* a posted fic, then quit reading it and don't comment, because if you do and it's considered to be flaming the author, the above rule will pertain to you.

2. The general content of the fics that will be posted here are going to be GEN in nature. Het fic will be allowed as long as it conforms with main rules of this community. All fic should be something that we would/could see on any given Thursday night. So think episodic or monster of the week!! Pre-series and future fics will be accepted, as long as they don't stray too far from canon and stay within the other requirements of this community!

2/14/08 - ETA: Content to *ALL* posts must be within the constraints of an actual episode. That means language, sex, violence can only be to the extremes that would be seen in an average episode. If any fic/graphic/vid posted is deemed to violate this rule, it will be removed and the author/creator will be notified. If the author/creator fixes the fic/graphic/vid to abide by the rules, it may be reposted.

Also, we would like to request that you put WARNINGS on all material that contains character DEATH.

Absolutely NO WINCEST or CROSSOVERS with other shows!!!

5/21/08 - All season 3 eps have now been aired in the US so any content within those eps are now free to be used.

8/25/08 - Absolutely NO *spoilers* for season 4 eps are permitted until after each episode has aired in the U.S.

3. In order to have your request claimed, or to be allowed to participate as a writer you must include "New Harmony" in your comment so that we know you have read the rules!

4. 2/14/08 - This is a moderated community. Submitted posts will remain in queue until approved by a moderator. Moderators will not be editing, censoring, or otherwise proofreading posts, we are only holding them in order to maintain a more regular posting schedule. Comments will not be moderated.

5. The moderators reserve the right to change or add to this list of rules as we deem necessary.

RE number 4?

But you'll make sure to tell us?

Because I know that I don't re-check rules each time I comment or post...

Absolutely!

If at any time there is an addition or a change to those rules we'll make sure and make a new post about it so you'll know! As long as you have us friended it shouldn't be a problem!

Sounds perfectly clear to me.

I'll start thinking about drabbles/short stories I'd like to see written and get back to you.

I'll also claim a challenge when I see one I fancy having a go at.

I'm almost looking forward to hiatus...

Awesome, I can't wait to see what you come up with request wise!

Thank you so much for participating and feel free to spread the word, the more people we get involved the better the hiatus will be!!!

Just a little question about rule 7 for the drabbles:

You may post the drabble/ficlet in your personal journals *AFTER* they have been posted here on their given due date!

I prefer to post in my own journal then link to it from other comms, this way I keep all my comments (if I get any) in one place. So could I post in my own journal then immediately link to it here? I understand you want the comm to have first dibs so I don't mind waiting to post elsewhere but I would rather keep comments and fic together.

Sorry its taken me so long to answer this question, I've been away from the computer for a few days!

Totally understand where you're coming from! I have no problem with you doing it like that! Just put the story information in your post here and instead of a cut-tag to hide the actual story, make that the link back to your LJ, which is how I'm sure you were going to do it, but you know....! *G*

Just please don't post it any sooner than Wednesday! Thanks!

I will make a post regarding this to clarify to all participants that it may be done this way! Thanks for the question and thanks for participating!

No worries! That was exactly how I was planning on doing it ;) thanks for the ok on that!

I'm looking forward to reading the fic Wed/Thurs! I'll be posting on Thurs sometime. I got the drabble done but I'm now working on something a bit longer that I may get done by then.

A question about # 3 .... Do you mean we have to put KAZ2Y5 in our comments when we ask to join? Or when we comment to a post? Or ... *is blond and confused*

Sorry if it should be self evident, but I just found this comm and I'm pondering joining, as a new place to find (and post) Gen-fics is right up my alley. :-)
Cheers ~

Erin

You don't have to ask to join! Membership is open to anyone, though posting is limited to Wednesday/Thursdays and only to post the drabbles/graphics! The KAZ2Y5 is for the comments if you leave a drabble/graphics request or if you claim one. It's our confirmation that if you are going to be requesting or writing/making graphics for this community we know that you've read the rules and *know* what we expect from you!

I've been asked before if you have to put that into *every* comment when you request/claim and my answer to that is YES if you remember to (mainly so there isn't any questions as to whether or not we're making some members and not others), but as long as I know you've read them and have confirmed that at least once I'm not going to be all dictator and make you edit every comment you make to include that!

If you are just here to read gen fic, then it really isn't anything you have to worry about but we love to get as many requests for drabbles as we can so we can have a wide variety to choose from so if you have anything you'd like to have written head on over to that post! Or to the graphics post as well!

If you have any other questions please ask! And thank you for your interest in this community!

Cheers ~

bite

UM...I had sent a fic in for queue last night (The Magnificent Here and Now), and happened to come and see this new rule from yesterday about content standards. The fic I contributed WILL NOT meet those standards; please kindly remove it from queue.

Unfortunately, I will not be changing the content to meet the new standards established by the comm, though I respect your wishes to maintain them.

Sorry for the trouble. Thanks so much. :)

I have to admit to being a tiny bit confused. Is the comm now open to any fic that fits the guidelines? I thought it was just for responses to requests and the fic-exchange.

Thanks
Lizzie (who is a bit slow sometimes)
