Editing Rules and Permissions

Content Rules

  • There is NO limit on content. If you're going to use extreme themes, add a warning.
  • The first five chapters should follow the same format as the rest of the story. After the introduction of the main character, you can take the story in any direction you want.
  • Try not to put in bad ends. If a character goes to prison; that’s more material for the story. Even if you kill off a character, that doesn’t mean that the story ends. They can continue to have fun as a spirit.
  • I reserve the right to edit and or delete entries that are poorly written, or to bring two or more passages in line with one another.
  • I may also edit for spelling/grammar/formatting.

Formatting Rules

  • Second Person : Present Tense
  • Preface all choices with Greatest Game/{Character Name}/(etc.) where Character Name is the game winner in that branch of the game.
*[[Greatest Game/Josh/This is a choice|This is a choice]]
  • Entries should be at least a paragraph in length. One sentence entries are LAME.
  • Make sure to add both the main category tag, and a sub-category tag for your character. Significant threads within a character's story can get a sub-sub-category.
    • If you feel you need a single sentence entry to give the player various options, do it on the same page. ie.
;What do you do?
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/This is a choice|This is a choice]]
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/This is another choice|This is another choice]]

;Or do you take her to another part of the house?
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/Take her to your room|Take her to your room]]
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/Take her to her room|Take her to her room]]
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/Take her to the bathroom|Take her to the bathroom]]
:[[Greatest Game/Josh/Take her to the kitchen|Take her to the kitchen]]
