General Submission Rules

to be safe do not use profanity, take the Lord’s name in vain, or hate speech

  • Do not alter the likes and dislikes (rating system) of your post. It has no bearing in contests whatsoever, and is there just for fun.
  • Try to have proper grammar and spelling.
  • Post what you enjoyed making, not just for the sake of posting.
  • Do not plagiarise.
  • Any images you use must be images you would happily show to your English teacher and grandmother.
  • Be nice in the comments. Only give criticism and feedback when it’s asked for.
  • For personal reflections, avoid using people’s real names. Changing Donald Trump to Tonald Drump isn’t good enough.
  • Anything that doesn’t follow the above will not be approved for publishing.
