Community Rules and Information  
Alrighty, I wanted to start out listing some rules and info about the site. This entry will be linked to the user info for quick reference, but I wanted it to be started out as an entry as well. So...to begin....

This community is presently maintained by Alyssa, a nineteen year old Special Education major from Youngstown, Ohio. More can be learned about her at nera_fiore.

Welcome everyone to the community! I’m so glad to have everyone here, but I’d like to cover one thing first before we get to posting: what we are doing is writing fiction about real people who also happen to be minors. While I cannot find anything illegal about this, I’d like to ask that everyone makes sure to add disclaimers to their stories. The last thing any of us needs is legal trouble from Greg’s lawyer. This is the reason why I have the community locked away and listed as “Friends Only”. I am open and hope for lots of new members, but I’d like to keep it so that it’s easily accessed, but only under intentional circumstances. Pretty easy, right? Piece of cake!

With that being said, I’d like to ask that all entries are “Friends Only”, which can be done before posting and/or edited if a member accidentally forgets. I totally understand and forgive if a member forgets to make an entry friends only! However if this rule is broken time and time again by the same member, warnings will start to be issued. Just don’t be oblivious…we’re all moderately smart young people!

So, what kinds of things can be posted? The answer is EVERYTHING! This group is totally open to any kind of fanfiction at all! All ratings, all genres, all styles, and yes, even slash and femslash are allowed! I simply ask that all proper warnings are listed and that fiction is under a cut!

Basically, let’s all be respectful of each other! Different people have different ideas of good and bad quality. Just make sure that if you’re going to criticize, make sure it’s done constructively. Don’t put down any other members, the cast of Kid Nation, or any other denominations of society. State your opinions, but don’t hate others for disagreeing with you. Heaven forbid I have to call Sophia in to run your asses outta town like Clint Eastwood!

However, let's respect these kids too. They do have a right to privacy, and therefore, if you know them, their last names, or any other personal information on them, do not post it here.

Oh, and PLEASE! Make an attempt to use the King's English here. NO TXT TLK PLZ, LoL!!11!1!one! And grammar. Grammar is good too. It really sucks to read a story when you can't tell when you're supposed to stop and start because there are too many run on sentences and tonight I had to work at the restaurant and I didn't make....yeah. You get it. Any entries that violate these rules will be deleted. End of story.

Additionally – if you have any other fan creations for Kid Nation other than just the fiction, feel free to post them too! Art, banners, etc. I want it all!

Now, let’s get to posting! Make sure you first hop on over to see the format for posting fiction (but it’s super easy, not even Blaine can mess up the order), and have some fun!
