ok. don't worrySoulforged said:Hi, I've posted my story but there seems to be a problem, I already sent a message to one of the mods about it, but just in case I want to make it clear here. This is what happened:When I first entered to publish my story I noticed that there was an option to see all posted stories up to date, so I checked that out, there was two stories in total. Then I selected "Add" and tried to add my story, gave it a title, pasted the content, checked "Request Publishing" and saved it. However when I rechecked the "ShowAll" page mine didn't show up, so I assumed that there was a problem with the posting, so I did it again, two times, but nothing. The last time (16/12/07 - with the title in upper case), just for testing I checked the "ShowMine" option and I realized that all my postings were there, just not in the "ShowAll" page.So what I want is to make a simple request for the judges (which, I suppose, won't be members of the forum), consider my last post and disregard the first three, since I didn't know what I was doing, and also forgive me for the troubles I may have caused.Thanks and good luck to everyone.
I can assure you we will revise every sent story and if we see some multiple submit stories we will only look at the last one.Vincalis said:Hmm, I also had a couple of diffuculties with submitting. I've now got 4 copies of the same thing in the 'Show Mine' list, beacuse the formatting didn't work out right the first time and each time you Edit it creates an entirely new (and non-deletable) version. Only one's flagged with Request Publishing, but it would be nice to be able to remove the badly formatted versions. ;DRegardless, good luck all! 8)
So, what if someone writes a 500 page story?Brysiu said:It is a freestyle contest - so write it the way you want, without any length restrictions.Brysiu said:Just a couple of questions.. what is the expected scope for the fanfic? How many pages (A4) minimum - maximum? Is poetry allowed too? Does Geralt have to be the main character?Don't know what I'll write yet, but I'd like to know what the options are
Hehe! I've got about 7 pages typed (in MS Word) so far, with my fan-fiction story....Still got more to go!EDIT:After we put up our entry using your link and all to post it up here, can we actually link in this thread the actual original file we have for it and all? Is it okay if I can I find somewhere else online to host my original say MS Word WitcherFanFictionStory.DOC file so people can see it all formatted, all set-up w/ cover pages, and everything???Vincalis said:
Yup. Precisely.AgentGriff said:Once we save it and request publishing what exactly do we do? Wait for an answer?
It is a fan fiction, not a fan art contest . However, you can place your fan art pic in the fan art section on our website (http://www.thewitcher.com/community/en/fanarts/) and then put a link from it in your story. I think its the best possible solution . Cheers and Merry Xmas ;DAgentGriff said:I have another question *blush*Can we attach FanArt Illustrations?I drew a picture for my Fan Fic... or will a link suffice?
