Hi everyone! Because we have had so many spammers, I tend to automatically reject everyone trying to join the forum. It's really hard to tell who is legitimate and who is not so, if you have been trying to join but keep getting rejected, add a comment to this post with the screen name you've picked and I'll be sure to approve your account. Sorry about that!

Since plaigerism has once again popped up, sadly, I wanted you to be aware it is also considered plaigerism if you steal from tv shows, movies or books word for word. The same rules apply but obviously it's harder to prove. If you do borrow a plot from a Grey's Anatomy or Titanic or whatever, you should give that show or movie credit. What you should NOT do is steal entire plots and dialogue word for word. That is just as bad as what this AJ person did.

Make sure you're familiar with the posting rules before you start adding stories onto Absolute Chaos!
There's a new rule that will soon be enforced so make sure you check your stories!
**NEW** 7.†Check your summary length. Summaries should be no longer than 3-4 sentences for stories with a banner, 5-6 sentences without a banner.
Consequence: Your summary will be edited at the moderatorís discretion.

Emma over at our sister-forum The Dark Side came up with a really great way for us to all show Nick our support after the loss of his sister, Leslie.
It would be great if everyone could go sign this card for him:†http://www.groupcard.com/c/cvvx62MnSd4
Eddie from Ground Ctrl has said they will make sure Nick gets the card so let's get the whole Absolute Chaos community on board here and show Nick our love!

Now that you're done rocking the boat, it's time to rock the vote.
Take a break from watching cruise vids and vote for your favourites for the Felix Awards!
Voting runs until 11:59:00pm on January 8th but don't leave it to the last minute!
There's only one vote allowed per person (yes, it does log them and I will delete multiple votes), you don't have to vote for every category, and you are able to go back and change your vote once you've completed your ballot! Good luck!

In an attempt to gain back functionality of the site and hopefully end the errors some people are experiencing, the site will be changing servers some time in the next few days. I actually don't know exactly when this will be happening, and I do not have much control over it. I will do my best to make sure that nothing is lost, but i can't guarentee it, so PLEASE make sure you keep a backup of anything you post (you should always do this anyway!!!)† If†anything is†lost during the server move, I really don't have any way to retrieve it.

Please read this, if you don't it could mean your story will be deleted.

Just wanted to let you know that the site is having some problems with the most recent page. Some stories are being updated but aren't showing up as most recent. We would suggest that you favorite the stories you are reading, this way when they are updated, you will get an email notification. We're not sure how many people this is effecting but based on the MB, there are at least a small handful of us that are having this issue.

This summer's review of the rules has lead up to this moment. We have to start cracking down on the amount of rule breaking that is going on. I don't know why it's so challenging to read and abide by a rather simple set of rules but somehow people continue to do so.
The amount of stories that are being posted with serious issues in grammar, spelling, and punctuation will be addressed. It's time to start using spell check or finding a beta reader that has it!
People hogging the most recent page is also going to be watched, and addressed when it becomes an issue.
READ THE RULES! If you read them forever ago, refresh your memory. If you've never read them, why not?

Hello everyone. Please refrain from posting a story on this site unless it's ready to be posted.† I have noticed a few stories that seem ready to go but when you click on them it's only a coming soon thing. All that does is take up space on the most recent list from stories that are actually being written and ready to go. You can always add an author's note on your current stories with a 'coming soon' teaser, but there's really no reason to post before you have anything written.
Also, please take a minute to edit your stories. We talked about this a long time ago and it seems to be a problem again. I feel like a lot of the stories being posted aren't being edited for grammar mistakes etc.. If there are a ton of mistakes in your story, no one is really going to want to continue to read them, so please take a minute and think before you post.
Thanks so much! Also watch your banner sizes! 300 x 300 or not more than 600 pixels!
