Submit stories to one folder only. See below for criteria. If you submit to more than one folder, it will be deleted from all but one folder without warning. If you're the author of the story and are not happy with which folder it ends up in, message Cryosite or Jondor and tell them which folder you want it in. We'll take it from there.
Welcome to Equestria Girls, where the look of friendship may change, but its magic is forever.
However isolated it may (currently) be, Equestria Girls is a piece of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic canon now, and there are quite a few people who are interested in it! If you're one of them, this group is for you! Discuss Equestria Girls, its world and its characters in the forum to your heart's content. Also, if you've written an EQG story, we'd love to have it!
As you can see, the folders are separated into cliques. Just like in high school, even if you may have varied interests, you can only belong to one. Please submit stories to one folder only -- the folder you think has the most of its associated tag in it. If you think your story's mostly Romance, toss it into Popular People. If its main thrust is Slice of Life, into Gossip it goes. The folder names themselves are self-explanatory; they correspond to Fimfic tags.
The sole exception is the locked Geeks folder. The Geeks folder is for the fics which are overachievers, decided on by the admins and faculty. A good way to get in here is to attempt something actually constructive with the EQG world/concept/characters rather than making it the butt of a shallow joke. (Well-executed, in-depth jokes, however, are still eligible).
Please note: we will allow Mature but we won't allow the usual really squicky stuff. No foalcon (this is the human world, you know what that stuff's called here), etc. We'll be popping in to look at each story so don't try anything.
Finally, your story must significantly involve the Equestria Girls world and/or provide significant characterization of at least one of its inhabitants. Stories about (for example) just taking members of the Human Six, pulling them into Equestria and having that be the end of it are not allowed unless you really allow the EQG versions of those characters to come into their own.
Same goes for ambiguously humanized pony stories (there's a group for those, way bigger than ours) or anthro (there's a group for that too, also way bigger than ours!) We'll be checking for these criteria too, so please be on your best behavior. Equestria Girls is its own thing and we'd like to enjoy and cater to it as specifically as possible.
If we, the staff, see stories improperly in folders, we will clean it up to our satisfaction. This typically happens when members don't follow the submission guidelines. As a rule of thumb a story should only ever be in one folder (exception: the Geek folder). If a story is in a clique, it should have that tag on the story itself. If either of these guidelines are broken, we'll delete the extra copies and move the story as needed to where we feel it belongs.
As mentioned above, this might result in the story being in a different folder than the one you, the author, deem it most fits. If that happens, message one of us and we'll move it for you.
If your story contains content that is "too squicky" and/or "foalcon" it will be deleted from our folders. If the story breaks site rules it will be reported to the moderators as well (do remember that while "foalcon" is allowed on fimfic, stories depicting humans that are underaged engaging in sex acts are not).
If your story fails to be about the Equestria Girls universe, it will simply be deleted from our folders. If you're the author of the story, and you feel that it does belong, contact one of us to discuss the matter.
Submitting a story to multiple folders will generally result in detention. Placing a story in a folder that is not tagged for that content may or may not result in detention; if it appears to be a habitual problem it probably will.
Repeated acts of the above, inappropriate forum behavior, and so on will result in suspension.
Expulsion will occur when we feel it is necessary. If you need to be expelled, there isn't really anything we could explain here in the rules that would prevent it.
If you misbehave you will receive a temporary ban. If you can't be bothered to read the submission guidelines and follow them, then you're misbehaving. You will receive a private message with your ban explaining the nature and duration of your ban. This will generally involve some sort of punitive assignment, such as writing "I will not misbehave" 50 times on the chalkboard, or something else appropriate. The idea is to get your attention that you did something wrong, and to get you to learn the rules that you probably ignored.
If you misbehave in a serious manner, you will receive a lengthy ban of our discretion. In this case you will be informed of what you did wrong. It also means that you're on our probation list when you come back from your suspension, and we'll be keeping an eye out for further misbehavior from you.
Repeated offenses and/or especially serious misbehaviors are irreconcilable. Our goals are to provide a fun and pleasant place for people to enjoy this thing we're fans of, and if you simply can't get along with everyone, then this place is not for you. If you are expelled, it is a permanent ban.
