[ADMIN] Ask the Mods!  
When in doubt, please ask here! Are you unsure of how to rate your fanwork? Not too clear on the difference between M, MA, and R? Have you spotted a troll, or someone else who is breaking our rules? Do you just want to make sure something's allowed at bleach_yaoi? This is the place to be.

Beyond questions and concerns, we welcome and encourage your feedback and ideas. If there's something you think we should hear about -- good, bad, or yaoi-licious -- then, by all means, let us know!

Just comment on this post, and all mods will be immediately alerted. Anonymous comments are allowed, and we will screen your comment if you ask us to. Come on in, have a seat, and tell us what's on your mind!

_debbiechan_: sex now please_debbiechan_ on June 11th, 2008 10:11 pm (UTC)

hmm, okay, just one little thing then. I enjoy this comm and read stuffs on here daily. I haven't posted anything on here though since the required disclaimer about characters within the fics being of legal age came into use.

I try to be a scrupulous person insofar as my fics go, and I write a lot of canon timeline fifteen/sixteen year olds. I was always too dizzy and unsure when posting fics so I didn't post them here but instead in different Bleach comms that did not require the disclaimer. Since LJ practice is showing that legal action and/or abolishment of journals for textual prons is close to nil, is the disclaimer really necessary anymore? I know it was put into practice when we all didn't know wtf LJ was going to do and we were all on our toes. Just wondering, because it's such a bulky disclaimer and other comms don't use it.

As long as it's not actually shota -- which is very different from featuring teenagers having sex normally -- the idea behind the disclaimer is that you can put it on your fic even if ages are mentioned in the story. What it's really saying, after all, is that YOU consider the characters to be over 18. But I know you're a super-honest person, so this suggestion probably won't appeal to you.

Obviously this needs discussion from all of the mods, but at this point I don't think the policy is going to change. Other communities can take their own risks, but there's never anything wrong with a little bit of CYOA.

I don't know if everyone's ever going to really be comfortable enough to let it all hang out on their LJs. While we may be the only community with the disclaimer, pretty much everyone flocks their porn these days, and lots of communities have restricted membership, checking your age on your profile before allowing you to join. You know? :\

While you're here, see the layout? I made a thing. :D

Yay! A chance to clear up my dense-ness...

Ratings... are beyond me, frankly. I've always said stuff is "M" (because I have picked up that that means "Mature", although I may be wrong...) but it may well be NC-17 or R or - there are too many. Are there different sets of ratings, and do you use a specific one if that's the case?

Thank you!

Hiya~

We were just talking about adding an explanation of the rating system. You beat us to it, but am glad you asked! If you don't mind waiting a day, we'll be posting something, either in the profile or in another post, about the ratings.

For now, will say that we've set the ratings commonly used for movies as tags, and are basically going by what the Motion Picture Association uses. You're welcome to poke, HERE, to learn more about what R vs. NC-17 means. Expect a more detailed, "official Bleach_Yaoi" response from us very soon. ^^

Here's a good rule of thumb: if a fic or fanart depicts yaoi action that goes "below the belt," be it masturbation, frot, oral, teasing, sex toys, anal, hardcore up-against-a-wall-thrusting, or any of the zillions of delicious ways guys can get it on together...it's gonna be rated R at least, and therefore friends-locked to the community. *points to icon.* Situations like that? NC-17~

((hope that helps for now. ;3 ))

You sure can! Realize most people will be pimping out their friends, but, hey, that's all part of being a community.

If you're looking for something specific, like Arrancar fics, Ichi x Ishida, Bya x Ren, Grimm x Ichi or the like, there are separate communities for most pairings, as well. That said, most bleach_yaoi fics do end up getting posted here, and therefore inquiring here for recs is a great place to start.

About works is languages other than english
I would like to know if is allowed to post fanfics in brazilian Portuguese.
If this is possible, I would like to know if is allowed to post translations(authorized by the original author, of course!)

Thanks for the attention
Gogo: make-outgogo_ergo_sum on August 2nd, 2008 03:36 am (UTC)
Re: About works is languages other than english
Indeed! People have posted fics in other languages previously. Just make sure to make a note that the fic is in Portuguese. And translations would be great!

Recently today, one of my post was deleted because it's content was not suitable for the com. I agree with the final verdict, but I just would like to point out that I was given the option to remove it myself or have a mod do it, and it was still removed without waiting for my consent or response.

I'm not saying that I'm unhappy or displeased, I would've taken it down myself, but then you should've said you were taking it down anyway. This is just a comment and I'm not trying to critize any of you, I think you all do an awesome job, but it is something that called my attention.
Gogo: Topper~gogo_ergo_sum on September 11th, 2008 07:34 am (UTC)
Gogo was trying to be polite. Other mods had already said "nix it," and gogo should have just deleted it.

Hey I'm really sorry and possibly will sound like an idiot but I read your guide to lj-cuts, tried both through rich text and html, but it just doesn't seem to work. I did the exact same thing as on my journal but everytime I try it here, the preview looks wrong. Any help why it could be doing so?

Thank you :)
花開院: Bleach - Kaien - There is no heartkeikain on October 10th, 2008 06:25 pm (UTC)
Oh! Well, that's because lj-cuts won't show up in the preview function. They'll only show up when you post.

So, if it works when you post it on your journal, it should work when it's posted here.

Hi guys,

The fic I got put up yesterday (Red & White Remix) got deleted. After re-reading the rules, I realize I forgot to f-lock the post, but since I didn't receive a warning or a message first, I'm not sure if that's the only reason it got deleted. Was the lack of f-lock the only problem, or was there something else that needed fixing? The fic does mention that one of the characters is 16, so I didn't know if that was it. If I fix whatever was wrong with it, can I resubmit it?

Sorry for posting a non-general question here, but I figured this was the quickest way to contact you all. You're welcome to screen this if you prefer.

Thanks!
Libek: [allen] coming up roseslibekory on January 18th, 2009 03:15 am (UTC)
I'm not the one who did the deleting, but I think your question is pretty much answered here.

Put the disclaimer on the fanfic and flock it. If you can, avoid referring specifically to the character's age. Just a little CYOA, you know? ♥

Hello
hello I posted a story earlier lets get some shoes is the title the only reason i can think of it being pulled is I forgot to fix the rating though i'm pretty sure I did it was pg at worst if it was another reason please let me know
Gogogogo_ergo_sum on February 9th, 2009 10:54 pm (UTC)
Re: Hello
Hello there,

I'm not the one who erased it, but I did click on it earlier through my phone and say that it was rated M (we'd rather you all use the ratings that are in our tags, by the way) and not f-locked. Was going to give you a warning and remind you to lock when I got back, but guess another mod took it down.

Please do repost it, just be sure to rate it appropriately, and f-lock it and add our comm disclaimer if there's any sexual content.

Thnx

Hi! I recently became the mainatiner of the narutoyaoi community. I was wondering how you, bleach_yaoi, get users to post yaoi fanworks here instead of kurosaki_clinic? Almost all of the content posted in narutoyaoi has been crossposted elsewhere.

Thank you.
花開院: Bleach - Ggio - Give you what you wantkeikain on February 14th, 2009 08:41 pm (UTC)
Well, actually, a lot of what's posted here hits more than a few communities. Bleach fandom is spread out over nearly two-hundred communities and so many of our regulars will post here and in a pairing-specific community or here and in one of the main fanworks communities. I've seen people cross-post fics to up to five communities.

Even if people are cross-posting, though, people will still come to your community as a place for those who'd prefer not to see the het or gen fics on the main fanwork community, etc.

Just keep it well-maintained and people will use your community as it's intended.

Greetings wonderful mod-type peeps!! I have a hopefully simple question! I didn't see anything on the user info page, but are crossover stories with other animes allowed? For instance, if we have a story that slashes a character from Bleach with a character from another anime?? (uh... my icon maybe possibly could give away who I'm talking about. XD XD)

^___^ t'anks!
花開院: Maria†Holic - God - Bouncekeikain on April 10th, 2009 02:07 am (UTC)
It is a simple question with a simple answer: Yes!

As long as it's yaoi with a Bleach character involved, it's more than welcome here.
