    Before I share, a question: What are the rules about content? My one fantasy novel has a lot of profanity, sex, nudity and graphic violence. It's not like it's a porno or anything, but it's definitely for mature readers. I'm concerned that it's probably not appropriate to share here, and I don't want to do something stupid and get banned for it.

    So if someone can outline for me what is acceptable and what is not, I'd appreciate it.

    PM Skyanide. He's the admin.

    But there are plenty of underage readers here, so I suspect graphic sex, violence, swearing would not be acceptable.

    Have a look in Rules and Announcements.

    Thanks, I'll do that.

    Also, give me a little credit here, okay? I fully understand that I'm not going to be able to post any sample chapters of my book as-is. I'm not thrilled about that but it's kind of a no-brainer, isn't it?

    What I'm trying to determine is exactly how much censoring would be required and, once armed with such knowledge, determine if it's worth posting anything at all. To that I end I need to know the rules.

    I know I saw them when I joined, but I couldn't find them when I went looking a day or two ago. So, yeah. I'll PM Skyanide. And while I'm at it I'll take another look around for those rules.

    Well, Skyanide still hasn't responded to my PM, and I'm getting bored. I don't want to break the rules but I can't find the damn things anywhere. Just like with the art thread...if I posted a link to a picture of Michelangelo's David (naked dude with a slingshot) it would probably be acceptable because it's classical art. If I posted a sex video from some sleazy internet site it would get me banned (and rightly so) but what about a nude drawing of an Amazon warrior? Is that safe like Michelangelo's David, or would it be considered inappropriate despite not being portrayed in a sexual context? These are serious questions and I can't get a straight answer.

    I replied to your PM and I'm sorry if I wasn't here to entertain you.

    I didn't mean it THAT way. It's two separate thoughts. You hadn't responded to me at that point, and there isn't as much posting activity here at TFF as I had hoped there would be.

    But ANYway. I'll be responding to your PM soon.

    Hi Herickson!

    That's fine with me. Can you accept a .PDF file?
