Read First Before Posting :)
Hey Guys,

Right now we don't have anyone that regularly reads the posts and takes care of inappropriate ones. I just deleted a post that I felt was far beyond editing.

While I'm all for general chit chat, you must remember that this web site is for people from the ages between 13+, and some members don't want to read about more mature and sometimes inappropriate topics.

If you wouldn't feel comfortable standing up in your class and saying something, it would be a good idea not to post it on the forum.

If you notice a post that violates our guidelines, please report the post and we'll take care of it. Click the button on a post, type a brief message, and then we'll look into the issue.

Thanks for everyones understanding, and I look forward to a vibrant discussion community :)

What topics are exactly off bounds?
I hope I haven't broken some rule. Just concerned. I'm nearly 18 so perhaps in a way some topics I might find normal talking about would be too mature for 13 year olds. i hope that's okay.

Don't worry, as matt said, this teenlit, not prison. If you break a rule a couple of times we will give you warnings. Remember WE CAN EDIT. So don't worry. If you have a specific problems with any topics pm me or Matt.

So what kind of violence is off limits?

~swissmochafudge~ 05-08-2006 01:44 PM

Yeah. Is there a rule list around? Is swearing offlimits? I mean..when it is neccesary...not just blurting out obscenities or anything. And obviously no degrading racism, sexist, stuff..

At TeenLit, we want people to be able to express themselves in their writing. This means that if you think that violence/language/other vulgarities in your writing are not an attack against any particular group/person. We don't want to take down every post that has a bad word in it. Use your judgement. If we have a problem with a post, we will let you post.

Have fun sharing your writing!
