Shaun hasn't logged in since January, don't worry about him. I'm not too worried about fanfiction and the other staff don't seem bothered either, so as long as it's clearly stated as fanfiction, go post what you want.

well that's just dandy then!

It actually took me a while to realize Shaun stepped down being in charge of everything. I actually have been meaning to ask you if I could do something about the polls. I like polls. Polls are cool. When they have nothing to do with stupid presidential candidates.

Technically, I'm not sure he did step down, as such, he's just been really busy for like forever.

I (secretly) hate polls, so ask away and I'll dust off my magic wand.

Oh like I asked him about it on Facebook and he just said "Ask Lykaios, she's in charge of everything now!"

I don't mind fanfiction, that's how I start writing stories. But--if fanfictions were grammatically well-written and follow the basic rules of writing, it would be considerable to my taste.

I think fair use applies in the case of fan-fiction anyway. You're not directly replicating any work from the canons, you're just using the names and features to create your own stories. The way you tend to get around this is "Based on [television show/film] written by [x] and produced/directed by [x]".

Most places are going to sue you for using their stuff. There's various other large sites devoted to fanfiction that I know don't have copyright licences.

On a personal level I've never been a great fan of the stuff and would usually opt to crit something else I don't need prior understanding to fully understand.

Shame to see Shaun go.
