Re: Yo

Hey guy.

I'm not NaturesTemper, nor am I any narrator of repute. Not now, or anytime soon at least.

Why do you ask?

Unfortunately, you can't remove your own pastas. Only admins can.

See, when something is marked for review on the wiki, what that means is that an admin (nowadays, pretty much just EmpyrealInvective) will have a look at it and determine whether or not it deserves to be deleted. That hasn't happened for whatever reason. I assume Empy is busy with real-life obligations or just hasn't managed to get around to it yet.

I could replace the M4R disclaimer with a "Delete Now" disclaimer, but either way, it would still require admin reviewal before anything happened to it. Personally, I think you should just keep it how it is. I understand your unwillingness to leave it uploaded when it has that annoying disclaimer at the beginning, but there's a lot of useful feedback in the comment section that you could apply to your subsequent stories. If the story gets deleted, then all that helpful criticism goes along with it, so you might want to take screenshots just in case.

I'll message Empy at some point today and ask him to have a look at it. Whatever happens to it at that point, happens.

Yo guy.

I saw the note you added to your story regarding plagiarism.

I don't know who did what, where, or why, but there's something crucial you should know. Everything on the wiki is under a creative commons license. What that essentially means for us writers is that people are able to use our works, whether we like it or not. They don't need to ask permission, or link back to the source. They are, however, supposed to credit the original source (in the case of your story, you, the author).

I'm not sure of the exact details, but I do know in many cases people can use work that's under CC licenses for their own gain, and can even profit off of it.

You may want to read up on the CC-BY-SA for the specific details, and if there's anything you can do to stop someone from using your IP in the event that they don't credit you (you can, however, always point out the original timestamped source of the IP, if the person is trying to claim your work as their own).

Ah, I see. I looked it up and saw it on Wattpad. They appear to have claimed the story is "by them". Perhaps add a comment on the page, linking to your original wiki page. There's a good chance their post will be removed, and they may very well be penalized.

Good idea. I may or may not have left a comment on the story's page on Wattpad. Pretty despicable thing for someone to do, but maybe it's just a misunderstanding.

Re: Quick Question

Hey dude, sorry for the late response. I swear I responded to this, but maybe I accidentally hit cancel and forgot.

Although I'm not an admin or mod, I'll do my best to answer the question to the extent of my capabilities.

Regarding your story, split into several parts:

Consider whether or not each installment could be a standalone story. Would each part contain a beginning, middle, and end? Could a reader stumble upon any one of the stories, read it, and understand? If there's a reliance on a previous story, either for a beginning or an ending, then no. Sequential pastas / serials are not allowed here, in that capacity.

Consider Twilight Zone or Black Mirror. Both are series, but each episode is independent. You can walk into the season halfway through, and still understand it as much as a diehard fan.

Contrarily, something like Prison Break or Lost will leave a viewer confused and in the dark if they had not seen previous episodes.

Is your story a Twilight Zone or is your story a Lost?
