|What is this community all about?|
|reviewers_inc is a reviewing community for Card Captor Sakura Fanfiction. Its main purpose is to create an avenue for Card Captor Sakura Fanfiction writers to post their stories and seek critical evaluation for it from fellow fans.
Let's face it, reviews are very important when it comes to stories. It gives the writer (and even would-be readers and writers) an idea how others find the story and how to improve it. But how can a story be improved if all it gets are vague reviews like "Upd8 or ur ded" or "This suck"?
|How do I join?|
|reviewers_inc has an Open Membership system. In other words, anybody can join without getting approved by the moderator. Simply log-in to your livejournal account, visit the Community Info page and click the link that says, "To join this community, click here."|
|Are Intro-posts necessary? How do I make an Intro-post?|
|Intro posts aren't necessary, but are appreciated. Considering the current number of members at the moment, we want to make a close-knit group of good reviewers. And as kainasilverbane once said, 'We're a friendly bunch. We won't eat you'.^_^In making an Intro-post kindly follow this format:Subject: Yoroshiku!|
|How do I post stories?|
|Simply follow this format:Subject: Bring forth the jury!|
|What are Community Challenges? How do I post a reply to a community challenge?|
| The Community Challenge is a no-pressure activity conducted every other week geared to encourage members to well... write. Participants get banners they can flaunt in their userinfo pages or anywhere they find appropriate. For every challenge with at least five or more participants, a winner will be selected. Winner gets an extra special banner and a spot in the community sidebar.
In posting a reply to a challenge simply follow this format:Subject: I take the challenge!
|Is it okay if I just provide a link to my story instead of putting it behind an lj-cut?|
|No. As much as possible, we want to keep the discussions within the community threads.|
|Up to how many stories can I post?|
|Weekly, each member can post up to two stories to be reviewed by the community. Stories need not have to be yours or the members'. It can be your favorite CCS fanfic or a friend's story you want the community members to evaluate. It's your choice. Just make sure that you ask for permission when posting other people's work.|
|Can I post old stories?|
|Yes, we believe there’s always room for improvement even in our best stories.|
|Can I post stories with N-17 ratings?|
|Yes, just make sure you state the necessary warnings.|
|Can I post drabbles?|
|Yes. Please take note that drabbles, as defined by Expression's Fanspeak Dictionary, is a fan fiction that is self contained and is no more than 100 hundred words. A half drabble is a fan fiction of 50 words and a double drabble is a fan fiction of 200 words. OR A drabble can sometimes mean a very short fic that is not exactly 100 words but extremely short, for instance, it is not incorrect to call a 500 word fan fiction a drabble.|
|Can I post crossovers?|
|Yes. Please keep in mind though that this community is geared in reviewing Card Captor Sakura fanfiction. Despite the existence of characters from other fandoms in your story, make sure that the CCS characters(and plotline, if your story is not an AU) remain center stage.|
|Can I post other CLAMP-related fics (like TRC, Clover, XXXholic)?|
|I'm afraid the answer to this question is no. I can recommend one of my affiliates,_fanfics_, though. The Fanfiction Archives (_fanfics_) is the place for all livejournal users to share, introduce, critique, or seek help with any writings or art they are working on, and has an open membership.|
|Can we be affiliates?|
|Sure, why not? Please leave a comment in this post.|
|Can I advertise a community I'm starting?|
|Yes, just ask for permission. As long as you are an active member of the community, and as long as the community you're promoting is related to either Card Captor Sakura or writing fanfiction, I don't see any reason why I shouldn't give you permission to plug your community.|
|How can I help promote the community?|
