Submitting & maintaining your creative work

Create Your Account

Creating an account is required to post fiction and art to Farscape Fantasy. Clicking 'Register' on the right navigational column will take you to the registration page.

Start by entering your pen name, which is the name everyone will see when they view your work. Example: Dallascaper's pen name is 'Dallascaper'.

You will then choose a User Name. Your user name is what you use to log into your account. It could be the same as your pen name, but for security purposes, it is best if you use a different name. For example, Dallascaper's user name could be DavidM (it could be, but it's not!).

Enter your e-mail address in the third field and click register. It is very important that you enter your correct e-mail address, because that's where the server will mail your new password.

And that's all there is to it. You will receive your password in a few seconds or minutes and then you will be ready to post your work. If you have any problems with this system, just e-mail Dallascaper.

Log In / Lost Password

Clicking the 'Log in' link on the right navigational column will bring you to the log in page. Enter your user name and password and press the 'login' button.

If you lost your password, simply press the 'Forgotten your password' link, enter your e-mail address and press 'send password'. Your password will be mailed to you in a matter of seconds or minutes. If you have any problems with this system, just e-mail Dallascaper.

Your Control Panel

After logging in, you will see your control panel page. From this page you will find announcements regarding the site, and you can add/edit/remove content as you wish. Every link you need is on the right navigation column.

Fiction: Adding/Editing/Removing

Adding a story starts by clicking the 'Add Story' link located on the right navigational column. Here you will find the following five fields:

Story Title: Enter the title of your story.

Summary: Use this field to enter a summary of your story. One or two sentences is usually enough detail to entice Scapers. If there is something Scapers really need to know about your story, like if it is slash or potentially disturbing to some people, this is a good place to add a warning.

Rating: We are using the same system that the movie industry uses, G=General Audiences, PG=Parental Guidance, PG13=Parents Strongly Cautioned and R=Restricted.

Chapter Title: If you have multiple chapters, and each one has its own title, enter the title here.

First Chapter: This is where you will paste your story. You could type your story, but note that each session times out with inactivity, so you wouldn't want to spend alot of time typing and thinking out your story, only for the session to time out. All HTML formatting is removed when you post a story to Farscape Fantasy, so all fancy formatting will be lost. However, you can use bbcode for bold, italic and underline. The code is located right under the chapter field and is easy to follow.

Once the first chapter is entered, click 'add story'.

Adding Chapters: So, you just added a story, but it's only one chapter. What if you want multiple chapters? No problem. On the right navigational column, click 'Add Chapter'. You will see a list of all stories that you have submitted, including your newest fic. Click the story title to highlight it, then click the 'select' button.

Chapter title: Enter the chapter title if it has one.

Chapter: Paste your chapter, just like the first chapter, and then click 'add chapter'. Repeat this process until your entire fiction is posted.

Editing Your Story:

To edit the story title, summary or rating, click 'Edit Story' on the right navigational column. Click the story you wish to edit to highlight it, then click 'select'. Here you will find fields for the title, summary and rating, which you can edit. When done, click 'edit story' and those elements of your fic are now changed.

To edit a particular chapter of a story, click 'Edit Chapter' on the right navigational column. Here you will find each story you've submitted, with each chapter listed under each title. Highlight by clicking the chapter title you wish to edit and and click 'select'. Here you can edit the chapter title and the chapter text. When finished, click 'edit chapter'.

Remove Your Story:

You can delete an entire story by clicking 'Delete Story' on the right navigational column. You will find a field listing every fic you've submitted. Simply click to highlight the story you wish to remove and then click 'delete'. Clicking the story title removes all chapters of that story.

Gallery: Add/Edit Picture/Delete

If you don't already have a gallery, a new gallery will automatically be created once you post your first work. To add art to Farscape Fantasy, click the 'Add Picture' link on the right navigational column.

Here you will find the following four fields:

Title: Enter the title of your work

Background: Choose a background color of your choice: Black, Grey or White.

Description: Enter information you would like to share regarding your art.

File: Click the 'Browse...' button, which will open a window allowing you to search your hard drive for your art. This feature has been tested on both Windows PCs, classic Mac and Mac OS X. Click the file you wish to upload and click 'Open'. Your file is now uploading to the Farscape Fantasy server, a process that could take minutes, depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the file. Please note that there is a size limit of 4Mb, and 1024 x 1024 for each image. Please note that .jpg and .gif images are the only files allowed.

Once your file had uploaded, click 'add picture' and your gallery now contains your new work of art. Repeat this process for each picture you wish to share.

Edit Picture:

You can't actually edit your pictures once they are uploaded to Farscape Fantasy. It is necessary to remove the original image and replace it with the new image.

Click the 'Edit Picture' link on the right navigational column. In the 'Select Picture' field, click to highlight the image you wish to remove, then click 'select'. The image you selected is now removed from the Farscape Fantasy server. You can now upload your replacement image the same way you upload a new image.

Remove Picture:

Click the 'Remove Picture' link on the right navigational column. In the 'Select Picture' field, click to highlight the image you wish to remove, then click 'select'. The image you selected is now removed from the Farscape Fantasy server.

Profile: Change your password:

When you register a new account with Farscape Fantasy, the computer creates a password for you. If you wish to change your password, click the 'Change Password' link located on the right navigational column.

Here you will find just one field: enter your new password and click 'change password'. And that is all there is to that.
