|Name:||Spuffy for the Seasons|
|Posting Access:||Anybody, Moderated|
|Community description:||a seasonal festival of fanworks celebrating Spike and Buffy|
INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO THE SPRING 2013 ROUND (ROUND 16)
(1) seasonal_spuffy runs the length of one season (i.e. summer, fall, winter, spring). It isn't fixed to one season, so check to see when it's running. It may run all year long!
(2) Contributing members of seasonal_spuffy are assigned a date to post their contributions - anything from fan fiction, music videos, graphics, haikus, etc. It's very much like summer_of_spike, since it is this community's forerunner. So give it props, because we like it.
(3) The posting windows for the Round 16 are as follows:
Window A: May 13 - May 19
Window B: May 20 - May 25
Window C: May 27 - June 2
Window D: June 2 - June 8
(4) Keep in mind that even when the time zone rules are followed for posting dates, they'll still crossover. Also, you might share your date with another person if there are more people signing up than there are posting dates.
(5) The 24 hour grace period will continue this round. I do strongly recommend against using it if at all possible. Some do not like sharing their day, and that's understandable. But, that being said, the grace period is there for the mods' convenience. Instead of sending me a panicked email when you forget your date, you can post within the grace period, no questions asked. Any longer than that, and you'll need to use the free-for-all days.
(1) Members will be assigned a posting date within the window they select. The cutoff time for posting dates is midnight, IN YOUR OWN TIMEZONE. I know it may be your day somewhere else, but please - stick to the time you're in. If you have any problems posting, please send us an e-mail.
(2) Please do not post questions to the community. If you have any questions, please send us an e-mail or ask your beta or friends.
(3) All content MUST BE ORIGINAL. We know everyone has great work out there that's been made prior to this community, but half the fun of a community like this one is seeing art that was made specifically for it. Personally, some of my best work was made for challenges and communities. Keep that in mind if you feel sour about this rule. HOWEVER, if you have something you've been working on, but haven't posted? We'd love that too. Call this a debut forum, or whatever ;)
(4) NO SPUFFY BASHING. This may seem like a silly rule for a Spuffy community, but seriously. Don't do it. Angsty, dramatic, unhealthy Spuffy is acceptable. Because... c'mon, what is Spuffy if not unhealthy? But if the story ends with Buffy hitting him on the head and running off into the sunset with Angel because he's so her one true love, then... I think you don't understand what "Spuffy" is (Spike + Buffy... duh.)
(5) No all human AUs, i.e. no fics in which the characters have to be introduced to the reader. There's not much more to the rule than that. However, all penguin AUs are enthusiastically welcomed!
(6) All adult material must be labeled and placed behind a cut. The tags for an cut are < /cut > (without the spaces).
(7) All stories and large graphics must also be placed behind a cut tag.
(8) We won't forbid you from posting your work on your own website or journal, because... hello... it's your work. But please post all stories and graphics to community and avoid using outside links.
(9) Your posts MUST have the following in their labels:
- era/season/setting (when posting fic)
- rating (when posting fic)
- genre (examples: amnesia, baby/kid/parent fic, crossover, holiday, post-apocalyptic, shanshu!Spike, time travel, vamped character, Wishverse)
- other Spike and Buffy pairings. Some Spuffy fans are sensitive and like to be warned about that.
(10) Last but not least, do not use the community graphics as your own, unless icons are made to spread the news of the community. Please ask before you use any art that is originally made for the community layout.
(11) IMPORTANT NOTE: NO BASHING THE PARTICIPANTS! This was designed as a safe community where people could come together and celebrate Spuffy in all its forms. Constructive criticism is fine; flaming someone, swearing at them, etc. will get you banned. Period. We have no tolerance for trolls or bullies.
The rules are subject to change, and adaptation. We'll try to keep you updated. Ask questions all you like.
