    How do you reserve future posts for the next chapter?

    So I went to the blog page to post the beginning of my story about the one character I developed that I planned on using for RP, but about only 1 in 10 are actual blog posts, and the rest are spam. What's up with this?

    Sorry about that. I"m going through now and trying to tidy it up but apparently the spam there hadn't been reported until you did so.

    Thanks Rayven! I know it has got to be difficult keeping all this stuff clean. What is it Witseidutsei the Argonian says in Oblivion? "So much dirt, and so little time, pause but a moment, and you'll be drowned in the tide." I've always liked that. :)

    Yes, precisely :) And unfortunately since the blogs are an add-on, they aren't caught automatically when I do spam cleaning.

    Continue to report the spam blog posts you see, however, and I can take care of them manually.

    Quick question does it need to have the 18+ prefix for blood and gorey stories? To clarify, stories that leave the reader with visual of a guys guts being spilled onto the floor?

    Hello, sorry but i'm a bit confuse. If I want to post the story of well.. my character in Skyrim with everything he did and went through where should this go? To the blog or fanfiction forum? Because I saw many stories in the fanfiction forum made in the same way im planing to do with my character so I thought maybe there is the place but I cannot be sure.

    I would just say put the story in the fanfiction area, and well if you want to make a Character card, I would say place that in your blog.

    In your blog, you can just post about anything, a journal entry of your character's journey, the actual story, bits and pieces. Go mad, update us on things he went through in game.
    Fan fiction area, is more like you're writing an actual book you want others to read. Be it any size in length, or with any characters but the things that happen have to be about or in Skyrim or a part of skyrim's world, or rather Nirn (hence, fan fiction but I'm sure you know that). Blog, for example can be about your adventures in another game if you so desire (like dark souls, or Dragon age).

    Oh I got it, thank you very much. So it seems the fanfition is for me since yes it kind of is like a book and is about skyrim. Though im not so sure about the chapter part, I know I should reserve some posts but Im planing to do a really long story and I am afraid I won't be able to keep everything at the first part of the topic since im uncertain of how big it is so well I hope that nobody minds if Some other chapters will be after the comments.

    Then, at the start of your RP, ask that nobody actually replies to the thread that you are writing on and rather they PM on your wall, or make a Blog page and you just link it at the start and ask them to reply there, if they have any criticisms and advice to improve on your writing style, or if they have anything to really say.
    Generally, I know people don't mind chapters after comments.

    Thank you very much, you helped me a lot, I will begin my writing tommorow and most probably I will make a blog too where to put informations about the protagonist and the other characters and also where the people could say what they had to at my story :)
