SXF allows Sentinel slash or adult fiction, announcements of Sentinel slash or adult fiction newly posted to websites, announcements of Sentinel slash or adult mailing lists starting up, and occasional announcements of official Sentinel-related news (from the Burgi fan club heads, or from the SOS or Ad Group).
This list is for Sentinel fiction only; there is a different list called SENAD for discussion of The Sentinel slash. If you wish to subscribe to SENAD, please send a request with an age statement and statement of intent (as described above) to the list admins for Senad, at firstname.lastname@example.org. SENAD is not the only discussion list around; it is simply the list historically associated with SXF.
We cannot allow any fiction involving real people (especially the actors). If you'd like to include another fan in your fiction, get their permission first.
We also ask that no fiction be posted with explicit sexual actions involving minors. If you have questions on what counts as 'explicit', please ask the SXF listowner at email@example.com.
Attached files can crash people's systems -- this includes long stories, short stories, pictures... ANY attached file. So, don't post that way. Ever. :) Also, check your e-mail program's setting to be sure that it's not automatically attaching something for you (like HTML code) -- some of them do that (especially Outlook -- I have a specific set of directions on how to fix Outlook to not do this.).
There is a post called "How To Survive On SXF" which will give a lot of guidelines and help on how to post fiction to this list, as well as how to format it once you've received it from others. Read it, as it will save you time and trouble. To get the full document, "How To Survive On SXF", write to the SXF listowner at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to it on the web at:
Do note, please, that as of December 2002, there were over 1,100 addresses subscribed to SXF. Don't let this intimidate you, but do realize that your work is going out to a lot of people.
