MOD POST: Ch-ch-ch-changes  
Introducing Weekly Fic & Graphic Posts

As of April 21st, 2010, gleeclub will be introducing weekly fic and graphic posts to display your fan works and consequently all fic and graphic posts to the main community will be rejected. We have received a lot of comments in our feedback post from a few weeks back regarding these issues and have decided that since there are already two main fan fiction communities, several icon communities, as well as several shipper communities that are geared solely towards fic and/or icons, it doesn't make sense to continue allowing fic and icons posted here. As it is, we post 10-30+ entries a day of news, pics, videos, interviews, and spoilers. Having fic and icon posts on top of those, only add to the already inundated community, therefore we hope this change will make the community a lot less cluttered.

Any fic or icon entries that have been posted to-date will stay, however, any new fic or icon posts will be deleted and will be redirected to the respective weekly post. Icons, wallpapers, banners, etc are examples of what should be posted in the Graphic Post. (Picspams, gifspams, fan mixes, fanvids are still allowed in the main comm as they aren't as much of an issue.)

The weekly Graphic Post will be up on Thursdays and the weekly FanFic Post will be up on Fridays (Fan Fic Friday!). Search under the tags for: ! graphics post and ! fanfic post.

For those of you looking to get more immediate exposure to your work, please post in one of the specialized communities. For a list of Glee fic and icon communities, check out the Glee Directory.

Thank you,

That sounds fair, so how do we get listed for the weekly post?

Yeah, we didn't want to ban then completely, so this seemed like the best compromise. :)

One of the mods will post the Fic or Graphic post on the day and people can submit their work as part of the comments. If it's fic, the usual rules apply as before, (title, author, rating, pairing, warning, etc) with a link to your fic. If it's icons/banners, etc, usual rules apply as well: three icon teasers with a link to the rest. Obviously if there are spoilers, make sure they are properly labeled.

People can post their fic/icons in their respective posts all week until the next post goes up. We'll also make a special tag for these posts so they are easy to find on the sidebar.

Thank you- I really appreciate not having to wade through 1,367 icon posts, many of them not even comm related to get to the news.
