The reader team has been grateful for all of the assistance from the community in helping to keep the platform suitable for everyone. The team has some feedback about how to report stories that may contain questionable content. When reporting a story please include as many details as possible, to help us speed up the process, such as the following:
Story Title and Author Name (a screenshot of the story card is helpful but not necessary)
Specific chapters or scenes, if applicable. We appreciate if you could include as much information as possible if your report is regarding specific content in the story rather than the story as a whole, such as, the chapter number and the scene in question, or, the chapter number and a correlating screen recording/screenshot about the content you are reporting.
Quick question about this one. Now, okay, let’s say I want to use a poet in my story, and I mentioned him/her in my story with quotes of their poetry, and taking about who the poet is. Will that be okay?
That would be a ticket question for the reader team. It would really depend on when the poet was around, how much of their poetry you used and a bunch of other variables. I would send in a ticket using the link in the OP so you can give them the details and they will be able to give you an firm answer.
This topic really does not cover that. This is only about reporting violations. Or welcoming Tyler. Not about how to fix your story, whether your story might be in violation or how to get your story more love.
I may start another thread or contribute to an existing one to demystify this a bit. In the meantime, though, let’s keep the questions here in line with the topic of the original post.
This seems like a great change. Welcome @Tyler and good luck to you… you’re going to be getting a lot of PMs I can imagine
I’ve actually had a question in mind about what stories can get reported for for a while now…
If a character’s name is a swear word, would that count as content that is inappropriate? I almost feel as if it’s depending on the context and which specific curse word So if you could confirm, that would be great
