Many of you are probably aware of the recent discussions that have been widespread in the HP fandom regarding critical reviews. After discussing it amongst ourselves, your moderators have decided to make slash_heaven an f-locked community in order to provide a safe and review free environment for people to post their stories.

Thus, all stories posted here will be f-locked. If you post here and then link from other communities, those who you direct here will have to be members to see the story.

To be absolutely safe, you will need to f-lock your stories that you post on your own LJ's as well, but that is, of course, a personal decision.

Anyone who is discovered providing access to stories that are posted here, particularly to reviewers, against an author's wishes, will be banned from the community.

Feedback is always encouraged; it will just need to be directed to the author in order to allow them the opportunity and ability to grow in their writing.

We believe that these changes will greatly benefit our members.

Thank you.

Hiya.

Will I be able to read the stories if I'm only watching the community? Or will I have to join the community?

Please advise....

I am investigating and will have an answer for you soon, okay?
For the moment, watchers should be able to see all stories.

Excellent idea! :)

btw, you've got a typo at the top - Shash Heaven... although now I'm thinking that shash could be a form of slash drug like crack. ;)

Thank, m'dear. All fixed. :)

Good deal. Personally I think more comms need to be doing this to protect their writers from the so called review police. To me it seems rather stupid for someone to attempt a professional review of obvious unprofessional work.

It's sad that many are leaving fandom because of this crap. If the writers were being paid then it would be a different story, but as it is to hide behind a journal and tear stories apart is pretty childish.

I hope more follow in this and create safe comms for writers to post unmolested.

Those aren't professional reviews. They're an excuse for miserable wenches to attempt to drag others down to their level.

Too true, but I refuse to get as angry about their stupidity as I did that one time. So I am going to be as adult about this as I can without telling them to suck the crap out of my dog's a##e.

*sigh*
I suspect so, hon.
So all we know to do is lock down and protect our members.

Captured

Hmmm, it seems to me while watching on of the 'Mummy' movies, there was a spell to conjure Egyptian dogs that walk and hold sharp swords. I will do the research and put them at the entrances.

I'll learn them to mess with us! ( I know the last part wasn't good grammar, but I was watching 'The Andy Griffith Show' and it rubs off )

Ok I feel really stupid.. but do I HAVE to enter a story to be in this community.

I'm sorry I'm completely retarded.. but um.. help?

I read the info and... I'm sorry. Feel free to disregard if I'm annoying.

No worries, hon.
No, you don't have to submit a story, just click the request to become a member. In fact... *wonders if she can issue you an invitation*

Let me see what I can do. This is complicated LJ stuff, though, so if the internet blows up, you know nothing, k? *g*

As long as you've friended the community, you should be fine.

Hija. Until today I only watched the community and was able to read the fics here. But it seems watching only doesn't work anymore. So, may I ask you to add me to the member-area, please?

Hugs.
