Welcome to elfwoodrules

This community is not (as the name suggests) for talking about how much Elfwood rules. It is for any discussion pertaining to interpretation of the rules/policies at Elfwood, and the decisions made by staff including ERB and Moderators.

Just remember that like the other communities in this group it is not an official channel for 'catching the ear of the ELfwood staff' - that's what the contact form on Elfwood is for.

This community is only for discussion amongst Elfwood members and it is very unlikely that any official policy changes or decisions will come from it.

It's ok to post pictures in here, but they must be behind the cut tag and on topic.

For specific questions, please read this post first. Your query may have already been dealt with.

• See elfwood for information on community news and updates.

1. Stay on topic.. Contrary to its name, this journal is not for talking about how much Elfwood rules. This is the journal for discussion of the Elfwood rules and guidelines. Here you are invited to voice your complaints about the current Elfwood system. This is not a place to complain about specific people in the heirarchy, but you may vent about the structure of control, the rules, how the rules are applied, the moderator system, the ERB, etc.
2. Respect each other.. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. You can attack the idea, the system, the actions, or the behavior, but not ever a specific person, even obliquely. Excessive or colorful swearing must be behind an lj-cut with a warning.
3. Very long posts or posts that contain pictures larger than 100 x 200 must be behind lj-cuts. There is information on how to do this here.

Thank you. =)


From the official site:
"Elfwood is a huge, non-profit home to Fantasy/Sci-Fi art and literature. In response to feedback from artists and viewers, Elfwood has expanded its site to cover a full range of Art, Fiction and How-To Guides. It is tightly controlled to stay within the SciFi/Fantasy theme, as art or stories depicting other motifs are not accepted. We host a wide range of original artwork to behold and inspire, and exciting tales to tantalize the imagination.

The growth of Elfwood has been tremendous since its humble beginning in May 96."
