Polite Notice: Rules For Access

Polite notice:

It has come to my attention that I have had a rash of random people have been attempting to 'friend' me in order to read my work. I don't mind this, in fact I'm honoured that they do, and frankly it flatters me and inflates me ego. What can I say. I'm a lovely boy.

What I have noticed though is the high number who are not here to enjoy my work, but come in search of flattering their own agenda.

For record, before you request access, remember the following points (listed again for extra clarity).

1. Do not swear. Swearing at me will gain you nothing but an automatic ban.

2. Do not be disrespectful, defamatory or rude.  This will also get you nothing but a ban.

3. Do not lie about your age. Do not even mention your age (doing so make it even more obvious), then there is less for you to embarrassed about when I catch you out in a lie. Lying will mean you are automatically banned until you reach the age of consent, at which point you may apply again. I do my own background checks. I can trace your ISP. I know who you are and your REAL age before I even reply to your request.

4. Do not save my work to your hard drive. It's the same as stealing. You will be removed from my list and reported. Even though I have moved from FFN, this rule is still in effect. Unless you have permission from me - and there are only four people who do - you will be banned from access.

5. Do not repost my work elsewhere. I will find you and believe me I will not tolerate theft. You are warned.

If you feel you are unable to follow these four simple rules, do not 'friend' me expecting to find my work all laid out like a pretty quilt. It's not. It's locked. Until I grant access.

I have passed on your info to a couple of people recently, who've been searching for fics I've known were yours, but I always tell them to contact you first and not just add you, since that's only polite :)
Apr. 26th, 2013 02:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, thanks, Develish.

I don't mind genuine requests, but I've been swamped with access requests from frankly rude people who are definitely not over the age of 18. Get this - you'll love this, I laughed tears - one person insisted they were born in 1974 and was 37 years old. You can guess where that ID and request went.

I'm tired of explaining the rules twenty times a week, and tired of fielding swearing and abuse. I buried my mum in February and yesterday Nannau as well. I don't need this on top.

But I have four months of new stories to post. If you know anyone who'd like to beta I have a vacancy, while my usual lovely lady is working on her NaNo novel, let me know

Man, that's just stupid on their parts. Entitlement culture at its "finest".

Have you heard back from LJ about the ugly formatting problems? Are they fixed then? So sorry I haven't been able to beta read. This Camp NaNo story is draining my muse, and I'm struggling with the dreaded middle section. I've written the beginning and the end, but despite an idea of how things progress the details are eluding me. I'm half-tempted to give up despite being only 10000 words away from goal, which I have been known to make in less then five days.

Come May Story a Day, I'll be beta-ready again. Believe me, I'll be more than happy to be beta-reading again. :)
Apr. 26th, 2013 08:38 pm (UTC)
Oops. Sorry. I meant to email you yesterday, but I was at a funeral and forgot.

LJ has fixed the problem. :)

Don't give up now. You can do it. I have every confidence in you. :)

I'm going to post a non-DW story and get back to the rest after the weekend. Which will nearly be May.

I am so sorry people have been giving you a hard time. You deserve better. I am also very sorry to hear about your recent losses it's hard losing someone you care about. I actually haven't been around much. Life and other things have been eating me alive, you know how it is. I hope it gets better.
May. 3rd, 2013 04:13 am (UTC)
Thanks. Hopefully thinks will get better from here on. I'm not sure we could weather another blow this year.

I hope things get better for you too.

Friend from another site
I'm sorry that people are so disrespectful of your work. You're a fabulous writer! Sadly, it took me, Rae of Galifrey, forever to figure out what 'Lj' stood for on your other account (I am blonde, in case you were wondering, and proud of it!)

It's so wonderful to see you thriving, yet so sad to hear of all your misfortune :(


May. 7th, 2013 07:01 pm (UTC)
Re: Friend from another site
Rae! Where have you been? Good to hear from you after all this time.

Glad you found me too. I've written a heap load of new stuff since FFN. :)

Would you like an add, or are you happy to lurk? :D

May. 23rd, 2013 04:15 am (UTC)
Ooh! I didn't realize you were still writing! I had read all of your Doctor Who stories back on ff.net, though I didn't always leave comments. Your fics were always great reads, and got me through long days at work when we had nothing to do and had to 'look busy.' I was really disappointed when you took them all off ff.net, though I understand your reasoning. I've really missed reading your stuff!

Is it okay if I friend you? I see you've had some issues with other users, so I figure it's only polite to ask.

(I probably commented under the name LadyKayoss; I have no idea if you remember me, but it probably doesn't hurt to mention that.)

I remember you very well. :) You referred to my stories as coffee breaks, even when there isn't one and you had no coffee. :D

I haven't heard from you for years. How have you been? :)

Extra luck. When do you get your exam results?

Did you move your LOTR fanfic over from FFN?
I read a number of your lord of the rings fanfics when they were on fanfiction net. Have you moved them over here, or are they available any where else on line? There are some I'd like to read again, and some I had not gotten to, yet. Please friend me, if your LOTR stories are available.

Re: Did you move your LOTR fanfic over from FFN?
Hi. Thanks for your interest.

I'm in the process of preparing my LOTR work from reloading on LJ. It will take some time, projected date before Christmas this year, but I will get there. I have recently only just completed the Doctor Who reload, so this will be the next slot.

I'll 'friend' you now in preparation for the reload starting.

New Friend
Hi! I've seen your fics recced by a couple of Doctor/Donna authors that I like, so I was hoping you might friend me so I can read them? I'm always looking for good D/D fic, and you have a great collection. Thanks!
Sep. 16th, 2013 05:27 am (UTC)
Re: New Friend

Thanks for asking. I'll put you in Group One for now as an interim gesture. Please don't be alarmed, but I do security checks before I add someone I don't know, and after.

Thanks for the friend! Found about your stories on the doctor_donna page and really looking forward to reading them. Cheers!
Oct. 16th, 2013 03:22 pm (UTC)
Re: Thanks!

Really? Interesting, since they banned me from their list. They don't like me because I'm not a woman. Either that or it's my ethnicity. Never found out which. As a result I don't visit their page.

reading fanfiction
I used to read your fanfiction when you were posting on fanfiction.com and have just found out where you are posting. I have always enjoyed your writing. I unfortunately do not understand how to use live journal so I will not be posting. Glad to know you are still writing.

Re: reading fanfiction
Sue! *hugs* Sorry to take so long getting back to you. LJ thought your message was a spam attack. I haven't visited this page in months.

Good to hear from you after so long. Consider yourself added.
Nov. 22nd, 2013 04:52 pm (UTC)
Hey, I recently discovered that your stories on FFN were removed, so I was hoping to read them on your LJ. Thanks!
Dec. 20th, 2013 08:31 am (UTC)
Hello, Leafy,

Excuse the long wait, I've been away greeting a new grandchild. I'll add you to group 1, which is the group i add all new readers to. Please don't be offended if your favourite stories are not there. This is a trial period, after which you will be added fully.

Nov. 23rd, 2013 12:27 am (UTC)
Hello! I'm a big fan of your work on FF.Net. My favourite one of yours was 'Fallen God' which is going back years. I believe that was the first fic I'd ever read in Doctor Who.

I'm sorry that people have been giving you a hard time. Sending hugs your way.

Hello, Jade,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I've been away for a month, tending to a family addition. I do remember you from FNN. The reason I left is because they banned about 75 percent of their content due to the change in the rating rules. The thefts were centered around that site. The bullying came from Tea Spoon, same stories, with personal and professional abuse being thrown at me.

Consider yourself added. Been a while since I've heard from you, so welcome back. :D

Jan. 3rd, 2014 11:43 pm (UTC)
I just wanted to say hello since I added you as a friend :) My name is Elaine and I found your LJ through Sykira's page. Hope you are having a wonderful beginning of the new year. Look forward to reading your work!
Jan. 4th, 2014 12:50 am (UTC)
Through Sykira's page? That makes you a liar. I know for a fact that Sykira blocked me last summer, though I never found out why. As such you are not given access to my work and are banned from my pages.
Feb. 10th, 2014 05:50 am (UTC)
I found your page while I was reading works by tkel_paris and really enjoyed your comments and prompt ideas. I would very much enjoy the opportunity of reading some of your work.
Feb. 10th, 2014 06:32 am (UTC)
Re: Hello
In short, no. This is now the third time in as many weeks that you have tried this, each time using a different name/ID. Consider this your third block. A further attempt will be reported to the Live Journal team; as spam, harassment, name it what you will.
Feb. 20th, 2014 04:36 am (UTC)
I recently tried using the bookmark for Missing Her on FFN and it no longer works. I went to your profile and it directed me here. I would love to read it and your others works new and old please friend me.

Feb. 20th, 2014 05:31 am (UTC)

I left FFN nearly two years ago, so I'm guessing the bookmarks won't work. :)

Well done for finding me. And thanks. You're now added. Please abide by the 'no download' rule. I don't allow saving of any kind.

I am currently working to add my Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings and other works to this page. I've placed you in Group Four, which is where my 'slash' stories are. Feel free to peruse any and all stories. Enjoy.
