MOD: FAQ [Oct. 20th, 2006|02:49 am]
Cake or Death?


[mood |relaxedrelaxed]
[music |Arclight by VNV Nation]

Hear ye, hear ye - Here be the FAQ.

What does this have to do with Cake/Death/Salad?
It's a reference to a routine Eddie Izzard has done in one of his television specials. The typical "You! Cake or Death?" thing has been done to death (haha) over the years, and we're jumping on the bandwagon with our own special variation.

And no, the themes are not to be thought of along the lines of Cake/Death/Salad. They're just names for the theme sets XD (and yes, salad should be chicken, but we got off on a tangent, and just stuck with the salad. Besides, one needs foliage to go with the death.)

Is there a minimum/maximum word count?
At least 100 words, please, but there is no limit on the maximum.

Do I have to do the themes in order?
Start with whatever inspires you, and go from there. We don't really care in what order you write for your claim, so go wild.

Are Crossovers allowed?
Erm, yeah, sure. AUs are welcome, too.

Does my fic need to be new, or can I post stuff I've written previously?
We'd prefer if it were new, really. No point in a challenge being here if you just match old stuff to the community.

I am offended by something someone wrote! What do I do?
Stop reading the offending material, and go somewhere else? Provided the author has labeled their fic properly, you really have no business causing a fuss. If they haven't, one of the mods will probably catch it and ask for an edit to be made to their header.

Is there a time limit?
For this certain community, no, there is not. We'd like it if you could post at least once every month or so just to keep the community active, but if you can't, it's no big deal.

Can you really eat my soul?
If you're asking that, you've already been eaten.

-more questions answered as they are asked. feel free to post here with anything you are curious about-

Re: Affiliate? and question

Haha - No, actually we leave the themes up to interpretation however you want it (I better clarify that on the profile & FAQ, neh?). We just have the "Cake, Death, & Salad" thing as a reference to one of Eddie Izzard's standup routines XD

And RE: Affiliation -- We'd love to! I'll add links to our profile posthaste (knew there was somesort of section I had forgotten!)

Thanks! We had a ball making them XD

Is it really necessary to use movie ratings for a medium that clearly isn't suited to the visuals described, or is it okay to just put warnings as long as they are clear?

It is preferred to use the movie ratings (or hell, even television ratings) since it is a universal system of warnings with one to four letters (& numbers).

Saying that, however, if it is really something you do not want to do, you are welcome to forgo the rating bit so long as you are very fastidious with the warnings. Fluff could stand for PG-style interaction, for example.

So in conclusion to that long-winded bout of nothing: Go ahead and do what you want, it'll be fine so long as someone doesn't implode. (So no nitro glycerine, okay?)

Insert the "to" between "like" and "affiliate", please. Lol. Sorry about that.
