@Ralph Crown: That seems a lot more formal and professional-oriented than what I'm going for; this is more geared towards hobbyists and fans (although pros are certainly welcome!).
@chihuahua 0: Everyone gets 100 points for signing up; I figured any number is as good as any other. I will probably be fairly generous in giving away free points to early users (for things such as referring your friends), but I'll have to curtail that eventually to prevent inflation.
Right now, there's only one rule: Don't write unhelpful reviews on stories offering nonzero rewards for reviews. Other than that, anything goes — it's too premature to come up with a complete rulebook.
You can add a new fandom by clicking the "Add another" button that comes after the fandom list on the front page. As long as you're logged in, you can add as many as you like. (It seemed the easiest way to populate the list at first.)
@alethiophile: Links are totally fine. You can even directly embed external images (for instance, if you're making a comic / graphic novel), or include links to PDF files, YouTube
videos, etc. (We don't currently support direct embedding of YouTube
videos, but we may in the future.)
Regarding spam reviews, right now it just says that reviews should be "constructive"; my thinking is that any paid review must display at least some evidence of having read the work in question. For now, it's easy enough to moderate reviews on a case-by-case basis, but if it turns out to be a problem then I'll add some kind of "flag as spam" feature.
Also, I changed the story listing links to link directly to the first chapter. You can still access the "title page" by way of the arrow navigation at the top; this may be useful for editing your own story, or for linking people to your story from off-site.
