[mod post] Rules & Guidelines  
Reposting this since I wanted to revamp them a bit.

1. Most importantly, use lj-cuts and tags.
All fanfics/fanart must be placed under an lj cut, no exceptions! A small preview of fanart is acceptable but it should be no bigger than 300x300, generally the smaller the better. As for tags an explanation of what tags are available and how to use them can be found here.

2. When posting fanfic/fanart:
Authors must list pairings and warnings (if there are any) outside of the cut. A summary would be nice too but not required. If you include a link that leads to a locked post please also warn that people will need to friend you in order to see it.

3. Fake cuts
and links to fanworks posted outside of the community are allowed. If you link to a public entry and later decide to lock it please come back and edit your post here! It's important that your fanfic/fanart be easily accessible so anyone going through old entries won't find dead links.

4. Yaoi/shounen-ai/slash
is welcome here, however you must clearly state that your fic/art contains it. No surprises please! If someone has forgotten to do this, politely let them know. I don't want to see any "eeeeeew yaoi!" comments.

5. Accepting het.
Yes, hetrosexual pairings are fine too! As with yaoi please clearly state that your fic/art contains it. I don't want to see any "eeeeeew het!" comments either.

6. What comes under the heading of fanart?
Things such as icons, layouts and wallpapers should be posted at ssmadness. However drawings of the members and man-ips are welcome here. If you are unsure whether your piece of work fits under this then feel free to comment and ask here.

7. Do all the characters in a fic or part of a fanart have to be from SS501?
No. In order to post a fic on gyonggo at least 1 major character has to be from the group.
In order to post a fanart it must include at least one of our boys. As long as you follow that then your fic/art can contain anyone else.

8. Can I advertise or affiliate here?
Only if it is related to writing such as a kpop fanfiction community, ficathon etc. Do not pimp ads for your roleplaying communities here. If you'd like to affiliate just drop me a comment here :D

9. Can I post pics/files/interviews here?
Nope. Go to our sister comm ss501 for that. Got a question about what's allowed? Comment here.

10. The only exception to rule #9:
If you have a picture that is related to your fanfic/art (perhaps it was the inspiration for it?) then you can post it in the same entry as your fic/art and ofcourse under cut.

11. Can I make fic requests?
Yes and no. Do not make posts just to ask for someone to fic your ideas. However sometimes there are opportunities where authors are willing to take requests and ficathons where you can add prompts. There is no garuntee that it will be ficc'ed though so please don't whine if it doesn't happen!

12. Is it OK to ask for fic help here?
It is. Though if you're looking for a specific detail about one of the boys, you may find ss501 more useful.

Last but not least...
13. Do NOT bash fanfic/fanart!
Criticism is fine. But remember that the author put a lot of work into it, so please try to be constructive in your criticism. Presuming the author followed the rules, warnings will be given before the fic/art. This means that if you don't like a certain pairing then don't read the fic or look at the fanart. Simple yes?

Got questions? Ask them here!

Hi ;]
May I ask if I am to write fics separated by chapters, do I make separate posts too? Thanks [:
M: Hyungjun/Youngsaeng (SS501)wad on August 17th, 2009 01:56 pm (UTC)
You can post them whichever way you prefer! You can put them all in the same post if you want or post each chapter separately.

I'm writing a fic that mainly revolves around Super Junior, but YoungSaeng's a very big character in it as well. The rest of SS501 will be appearing more often in the future as well.

Am I allowed to post it here? Here's a link to the most recent chapter:

Thank you ^.^
M: Ryeowook/Henry (Suju-M) sumoswad on September 20th, 2009 06:04 pm (UTC)
Sure you can! Crossovers are welcome as long as there is atleast one SS501 member involved.

I had this random idea to take requests for MV fics, like the two that I have already written for Find and UR Man. Would I be allowed to post a request post here, and if so, how would it be tagged?
Mwad on April 15th, 2010 05:48 am (UTC)
Sure you can post that! It might be best to leave it untagged though or you might get people still requesting stuff like a year from now xD;;

If I have a fanart for my fiction, do I post it ABOVE the CUT? Or BELOW it?
M: Hyunjoong (SS501) cutewad on July 5th, 2010 11:42 pm (UTC)
Below it would be best.

Sorry for the super late reply! If you still want to affiliate then okay :)

Sorry, gyonggo only affiliates with other fanfiction communities. I can hook you up with a link at ss501 though :)
연아 (YeonAh)yeonah on May 24th, 2011 11:35 pm (UTC)

Is it possible to have 'member/other' tags? There are getting to be quite a lot crossover pairings here xD

Mwad on August 16th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, what you can do is use the tag for the specific member and the crossover: other tag.

Like this:
focus: youngsaeng, crossover: other

Okay :) added your link.

I'm totally new to livejournal and kpop fanfiction. I have a few one-shots about SS501 (mainly YoungSaeng). How do you post to the group page? Do you post on your journal and then tag the group or something? I do have them already on my journal if thats how you start?

I'm clueless >.
M: Youngsaeng (SS501) shimmery sshwad on October 24th, 2011 02:35 am (UTC)
You have two options:

1) make a new post containing the links to your stories (along with info such as the title, pairing etc), and post it to Gyonggo. When you are writing a new post for your journal at the top is "Post as:" your username and a drop down menu labeled "Post to:" and you just have to select gyonggo. Then it will post it in the community instead of in your journal.

2) make a new post and paste the whole story into it, and post it to Gyonggo. You'd have to use a lj-cut so the entry won't be super long, but I can teach you how to use it.

I'd recommend looking at a few past entries at the community to figure out which method you'd like to use. And don't forget to ask me if you need help :)
