Just so we have these all in one place...

General Decorum

Be Nice or Leave.


Rockfic operates a strict anti-bullying and anti-harassment policy. If you have a problem with someone, get in touch. We will do our best to get all sides of the story before making a decision.

Age of Consent for Characters

As of 11th March 2017, characters involved in relationships that involve any kind of sexual contact (kissing, touching, penetration etc) must be over the age of 18. No exceptions.

Members who break this rule will be banned.


General Submission Rules

Story submission rules which will be followed or your story will be taken down and you will be asked to reformat it.

1. Spellcheck with a US or UK English spellchecker and proofread before posting.

2. If English is not your native language, we commend you for writing in English. However, this means writing in English, not running your story through Google Translator and publishing that. As we all know, Google Translator is shit. Find a beta who will help you translate into commonly used, spoken English.

3. Basic punctuation must be correct: capital letter at the beginning of each sentence, proper ending punctuation at the end, etc. Possessives must be properly formed as well (Axl's shriek, not Axls shriek).

4. Dialogue punctuation must be correct. Many people get this wrong, especially when it comes to when to use commas vs. periods and when to use For an explanation of correct dialogue punctuation visit http://www.rockfic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5064.

5. Every paragraph must have a blank line between it and the next one. This includes brief dialogue paragraphs as well. If you're unsure of how your story should look, check out other stories on the site.

Helpful hint: Your formatting should look like this:

Quote:A tall black woman in a long, slinky red dress stopped at his table. She had flawless skin and subtle make up. Thick, long blonde hair cascaded down her shoulders and her red shoes, just visible beneath the dress, looked painfully high. With a sigh, she placed a hand on her hip and stared at him.

"Another drink, Mr Grohl?”

Picking up the empty champagne glass, he grinned and waved it at her. She took it and placed it on the silver tray that rested on her other hand.

"Where are your friends, Mr Grohl?” She sounded exasperated, as though dealing with a child. It was what he expected of people after he'd had a few drinks.

He shrugged, suddenly feeling uncomfortable in the suit jacket and shirt. "Don't know. Gone.”

"And no one wants to talk to you?”

"Not tonight, Lucy, obviously.”

Lucy rolled her dark eyes. "Well, I'll come and keep you company if I have to. Or maybe you can watch some of our fine entertainment.”

His face lit up. "You'd come and sit with me?”

"Only if you behave.” She pointed a red polished finger at him. "I've heard about you and I'm off the market so you can keep those hands to yourself.”

Raising them above his head, Dave chuckled. "Yes, ma'am!”


6. Your stories should have fully developed characters in them. This is fine if you're writing just band members. However, if you're writing original characters we need to know their name, quirks, what they look like etc. Anything that involves an "insert your name" character will be deleted without a warning.

Rockfic.com reserves the right to remove any fics posted to the site for any reason and without notice. However, the most likely reasons for removal of fics include:

- Explicit sex involving anyone under the age of 18
- Plagiarism or other intellectual property rights issue
- A request from the musician(s)/band(s) or any other real person whose name was used in the fic
- The fact that the posted "fic" wasn't actually fic. (People come to Rockfic expecting to read fanfic about bands; anything else posted to the archives will be removed. Repeated offenses can get your account suspended.)
- The fact that the posted fic didn't have anything to do with bands or musicians (real or fictional).

Rockfic.com does not police the content posted to the site. If you believe a fic has violated one of the rules above or for some other reason should be removed from the site, please contact Rockfic.com's administrators. You will need to provide the title of the fic, the name of the author, and the reason you are reporting it.


Posting Stories

If you want to post a story written with another author, you have two ways of going about this.

- One of you posts it from your primary account and credits the other author in the Author's Notes.

- Create a second account that you both have access to. List in the profile who the account belongs to. Torchy_Thompson is an example of how this has been done. This is the only time a second account is acceptable.


What Will Get You Banned

- Unnecessary drama in the forums. This includes alluding to drama in order to cause yet more drama.

- Name calling, harassment, and bullying either in private messages, chat, stories, or on the forums.

- Ganging up on a people, whether on the forums, stories, chat, or private messages.

- Slander (a malicious and false statement about another user which will cause harm to the reputation of that person), whether on the forums, stories, chat, or private messages.

- Threats of physical, emotional, or psychological abuse against another user, whether on the forums, stories, chat, or private messages.

- Sock puppet accounts. The only time a duplicate account is allowed is if you're working with another person. There are several of these accounts on Rockfic. However, if you're creating a second account just to post duplicates of your stories and/or cause drama then you can say goodbye to all of your accounts. Likewise if you have multiple accounts for the purpose of reviewing your own stories.

- Duplicate stories. If you post the same story more than once, you're putting your account in danger. Please post a story once. If you're caught with the same story more than once in the database, you'll get a warning and the copy with the least amount of reviews will be deleted. Do it more than once and you're outta here.

This list is not exhaustible and everything will be looked at on a case by case basis if you break the rules, you're gone.

Rockfic is a drama free zone. The only drama we want to see is in your stories. Enjoy!

Fuck it. I've had enough. This weekend has been absolute hell with people acting like cunts.

RULE #1 OF ROCKFIC: BE NICE OR LEAVE.

It's up there in black and fucking white. If you don't like it, leave. The door's that way. Don't let it hit you on the way out. Some of you are skating on very, very thin ice and if I get one more complaint I will ban you. You will not pass go, you will not collect £200, your case will not be heard. YOU WILL BE BANNED, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED AND I WILL NOT ANSWER ANY PLEADING, WHINING EMAILS YOU SEND. You're playing in OUR front yard and we will start acting like grumpy old men and kicking you out. All everyone here wants to do is enjoy what's left of the holiday weekend without some shit kicking off. Yet all I've done for the past three days is field emails and private messages because some people don't know how to act like freaking adults. You have to be over 18 to be here. START ACTING LIKE IT.

Friendly Reminder

- Explicit sex between an adult and a minor

Minor means someone who is under the age of consent. Age of consent means the age of consent in the area that the story is set in (i.e. if the story takes place in the UK, then the age of consent would be 16). You can find the details of the age of consent by country here:

See this? Take a long, hard look at it. Memorise those words.

And let me spell them out for you again.

ROCKFIC IS A DRAMA FREE ZONE.

The only place I want to see drama is in your stories.

Over the past two months, I've had to deal with people hauling drama here from Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram/whatever social media site is popular at the moment.

I'm going to say this once, and once only.

I do not, and will not, ban people due to drama that has erupted on another website. I don't care what happened. I don't care what was said. I don't care who started it. I will, however, get to the bottom of the story and if I find out that you've started the drama, I will show you to the door. You have to be over 18 to join this site which means that you're an adult. Being an adult includes ignoring whatever bait is being thrown your way. You're here to write stories, enjoy stories, and talk about the bands that you love. You're not here to waste the time of myself and my staff. We have enough to deal with without you and your petty Facebook fights.

I'm not here to be Little Miss Popular. I'm not here to be liked by you. I'm here to run a safe and happy site for the people that want to be here. Don't like my opinion? The door's that way.

(However, if you do have a genuine concern, please do get in touch. I'm not actually that bad but, from time to time, I have to do this for the sake of a few.)

^ This. AGAIN. TONIGHT. My patience is like very thin ice right now.

As of tonight, there will be no more warnings. I will not correct your shitty behaviour. If I find out that you've been hauling drama here from another website I will ban you. No questions asked. No passing go. No collecting $200. You'll be gone. End. Of. Story.

Do you all understand? Or do I have to start publicly naming and shaming people for not being able to act like FUCKING ADULTS?!

This is a rule. It's in the rules. Which all of you should have read before you start posting here.

This has been happening a lot recently. People do not come to Rockfic to read "chapters" that are actually things that should be posted in the author's notes. That's why the author's notes section is there.

If you want to draw attention to why you haven't updated for a while, you can. It's why we have a message board. Drop a message in to the "Questions and Discussions" board of the writing section.

As of today, if I find "chapters" that should be author's notes, I won't warn you. I'll delete your story and ban your account.

Chapters = Actual chapters of a story.

Author's notes = Anything else you want to say.

Need to apologise for not updating as regularly as you think you should = Use the message board.
