Well, it is time for the moderators to own up to our little prank. The Updated Submissions Policy was a hoax.
Yes, that's a right, just a lovely little prank pulled by the moderators to help celebrate the birthday of those beloved twins, Fred and George Weasley.
We hope all of you enjoyed it, though it appears to have distressed a few.
Just to make everything crystal clear, though, MNFF is not charging the users a fee for anything. This site has always been, and remains, a free site. Enjoy!Edit:
While the charges were a joke, there were some things that came out in the comments that should be taken seriously.
First off, this joke grew out of how many submissions we receive where it is blatantly obvious the people did not read the submission rules. The lesson there is: Always read the Submission Rules before submitting.
Secondly, along with the idea of reading the rules, it is always recommended that anyone planning to submit have a beta reader look over their submission before adding it to the queue. Even if you are fabulous with writing, chances are that you have a few typos sprinkled throughout your story/chapter that you will not catch because your mind will skip right over them. Please, please have someone look over your submission before you send it in.
Finally, rudeness on the site will not be tolerated.
Not between members and not directed at moderators. We are all here to have a good time.
