Question about the stories one can post for the story of the week....

   I notice around furtopia that in general areas, the topic must be rated pg-13.  I have several stories which will soon be on my site, once I am finished making it.  The better ones have a mix of adventure, romance (including descriptive sex), and plotline to them, much like a novel.  But I wouldn't rate the sexual episodes pg-13...more like r or higher...but mind you, tastefully done.  Would I still be considered for the story of the week or would it not be considered due to the adult content?

Just Curious...

Speaking of stories... I'll be posting a short little blurb which came clicking out of my fingertips through the keyboard while I listened to Midnight's artistry on his synth. It will be a new topic in the writing techniques section.†Enjoy!

We would like that the stories be complete. Not chapters/sections/parts or just "To Be Continued..."

Also, they should be PG-13 rated as they are read by EVERY visitor. Good luck and as Manethran said above, complete. They can be short stories or long ones.

OK, I can understand the entire site being PG-13 with adult sections clearly marked.  But to limit contests to pg-13 writing and lower only.... isn't that discriminating against a writer who gravitates more toward R and X writing?  Why not have the contest completely open and if it is an adult piece which is picked, simply mark the page with a warning, like the rest of furtopia.  That way, the contest is for everyone and the page is no different then any other page in furtopia.... available to any who choose 'I am 18 +".  Kiddies are here, yes, but do the rest of us have to miss out on competition because a minor will sneak a peek?

Not attacking anyone here.  It just doesn't make sense to me.  Especially when you give the option of a writer or artist choosing to rank themselves as an adult only site. (See the application for webspace).   Thought perhaps no one had thought of it from this angle before and wanted to mention it.

Interested in any feedback as well.
Thanks.

Sorry River but it is limited to PG-13 only. If others want to read stories with higher ratings they can go to the artists own websites.

No, it is not discriminating. How a writer chooses to write is their choice. Knowing that the "Choice of the Week" is rated PG-13 gives THEM the choice of writing something for that specifically or not.

To be considered for Choice Of The Week the story, poem, artwork or peace of music must be compleate and in the PG rateing.

That is the only restriction, and that is due to the whole site being PG rated.

Adult oreantated items can be on the owners website in a clearly marked adult area.

Maybe there could be a compertition for the Adult items later, but at the moment all compertions are PG only.

Ok.  I like the idea of a contest being for both, but not much I can do, is there?  Yes, I could write something PG-13, but some of my best work wouldn't fall into that category.  People write when inspired.  I just can't see sitting down and saying to myself..."  Ok.  I'm gonna write something great... oh crap I gotta remember to keep bikini's on everyone....regardless of the fact it is their wedding night."
   Oh well.  But it does seem kinda stupid to me to allow people the option of having adult writing... purely an adult site... and then not have anything available for them contest wise. It's almost like saying... "You are an adult and can do what you want...but *slaps* bad adult for not writing for kiddies."  Shouldn't the kiddies be the ones who are restricted and not the other way around?  Think of the movies... they don't NOT allow r rated movies and X rated movies to be made and sold.  They merely stop the kiddies from getting in at the ticket counter.  And how many of you have watched movie awards?  Those are publically shown and many movies are designed with a theme and plot designed for over pg-13.  And they rake in the awards.  IF something is good enough to earn an award...and you aren't old enough to see it... guess what?  You have to wait til you are old enough.  The movie is never denied... due to the fact it would be discrimination. That is another way of trying to show you what I meant, Kada-Ru, by saying it was discriminating.
   Anyhow, just in case what I am saying falls on deaf ears, I will let it be.

~ A discontented River

Why discontented?.... because you spend your whole childhood being told you can't do this or that because you aren't old enough.   And then when you ARE old enough... you are told you can't do it because OTHER people aren't old enough.  Think about it for a moment....

Sorry, River. It is still not discrimination. Having a webisite that is rated above PG-13 hosted on Furtopia has nothing to do with the contests.

The contest is open to EVERYONE but they also have to follow the rules. The rules are only PG-13 permitted. If some one wants to do something other than PG-13, they can, they just can't submit it in the contest.

If you would like to have a contest for adult material you are welcome to host one on your personal forum, as Midnight Dragon was hosting an art contest on his not long ago.

Another point Iím glad you need to write River.  The world needs more good writers.  I myself often enjoy adult writing more.  But we do have to walk a fine line between protection of minors and giving as much freedom as possible to the artists to express themselves.

Shouldn't the kiddies be the ones who are restricted and not the other way around? Think of the movies... they don't NOT allow r rated movies and X rated movies to be made and sold.


We/I do not wish to block your creativity nor do we wish to hold you from writing.  But we do have to keep the non-adult areas PG.  Example, you are free to draw/write as much adult material as you like but you would not be allowed to display them on a school playground.  That area is open to minors so itís off limits to adult material and it would be wrong to ban children from there.  However take them to for example a no-minor coffee shop where artists display work and debate.  That would be fine.

I know itís frustrating when you do something really special and itís difficult to share it the way it deserves to be shared.  The main areas of Furtopia are PG.  If we BANNED all minors outright they would be getting shut out of something good they cannot help or control.  So the best solution I could find is create places for both.  PG site with Adult only areas.  Choice of the week is off the main page so it needs to remain PG.  However that does not mean we cannot create a ďadult onlyĒ story contest if there is a desire.  We can make this adult contest work and a good addition to the boards if fursons are willing to cooperate working together on this.

Ok, White Shepard, I would be quite happy to see and participate in an adult writing contest, if one is put into effect.  It's difficult to explain my writing without having some of it online yet.  There is alot of creativity and talent which goes into it, moreso then in your run of the mill smut story.  For example, in a eleven chapter ongoing story I am working on, there is nothing sexual until the third chapter.   Prior to that, it is all plot and adventure, setting the pace for the following chapters and evolving storyline.  (Definately not designed for anyone looking for a quick trick....although I do have a few short stories written with sexual desires at the forefront also...all clearly marked as adult. :-))  I know people would enjoy reading it (provided they are above eighteen).  And I think a contest for those who can't enter the regular one would be great!

   I am not trying to be a pain in the butt to anyone here over this.  It's just that I want to play too and show off my own talents via some of my best work.  Sometimes I can get a little pouty. But all in all, it boils down to .. "I wanna play too...."

   Thanks for understanding :-).

Hello, all.  I am still new here, so I don't know all the rules and stuff yet.  I just had a suggestion about the "Story of the Week" thing.  I had talked to River Ceed and she said I had a good idea.  I have read the other replies on the topicand do not mean to back talk or step on any toes, but I thought it would be a good idea for the furs in charge of te contest to allow two winners.  One for the adult stories and one for the PG-13 stories.  That way all furs can write what they want and the winners can still have their pieces read by all.  The younger furs can read the PG-13 winner and the adults can read the adult winner.  I just thought it might be a good idea.  I don't mean to sound pushy or bothersome.  I know that the furs in charge probably have things that way for a reason.  It is just that the leopard likes to look at both sides of everyhting.  I am sorry if what I have posted here is out of line.  The leopard murrrs and thanks you for your time.
