Does it have to be Sierra releated?
« on: July 18, 2010, 04:06:41 PM »
Do the works we share here have to be Sierra related? I have two stories I have been working on for years, but they are works of my own. Would you all be interested in reading them?

As far as I'm concerned, this board is for all manners of creative works, not just sierra related. Oberonqa can correct me if he wishes, but this board was intended to express your creativity. We wouldn't be allowing you to express your creativity if we put restrictions like that, now would we?

LOL@Express your creativity, but only in the ways we allow you to.

No worries folks... this board is for you to express your creativity in whatever manner that strikes you... as long as it's family friendly.  That is the only restriction I will impose on your creativity... and I am pretty sure it doesn't require an explanation or apology (if it does, then consider one given).  

Enjoy!

The question seems so silly in hindsight, lol. But I do have one chapter in a story littered with curse words because a fight is happening. (Verbal, not physical). What would I do if people wanted to read it?

Censor the swears if you're going to post it here.  We all have good enough imaginations to figure out what they were originally.

Well, the forum does have an automatic censor to catch things like that. But, perhaps you should post a link to it and use this forum as feedback. It's up to you, really.

The forum does only catch regular swears though, it doesn't recognize "wizard" swears.

"wizard" swears? Now that's something I've got to read...

Farscape had it's own swears too and those won't get picked up on the filter!
